Mr. Pelsky Is Dead

Father of Mrs. Sidney Lascelles—She is the Only Heir. Fitzgerald, GA. Nov. 11

---Mr. Alexander Pelky, father of Mrs. Sidney Lascelles, dropped dead in the Lee House here this afternoon. Since his daughter married Lascelles Mr. Pelky has never seemed himself and has pined away. He walked about town today and appeared in fairly good spirits. Late this afternoon he stepped in the hotel and without a second’s warning fell dead. He leaves a fortune estimated anywhere from $50,000 to $75,000. Mrs. Lascelles is his only child and heir. She is with her husband who is a fugitive from justice. The question is will Lascelles have the nerve to come back and face the numerous warrants out for him in order to secure the rich prize awaiting him.
