Death of a Stranger.

A man walked into the city something over a week ago, and claiming to be sick, enlisted sympathy which secured him quarters at the Bartow house. He was given the best medical attention by Dr. Riddle, yet nevertheless, grew gradually worse until he died on Tuesday morning. His trouble, Dr. Riddle says, was hemorrhage from the stomach and bowels, and finally rupture of a blood vessel, which produced sudden death. Having no means, he was buried at the expense of the city.

The man gave his name as John Fulcom, and said he was a carpenter, from Detroit, Mich., where he left a family. He said he was on his way to Florida to hunt work.
