ROBERTSON, Charles Alexander - The almost lifeless body of Chas. Robertson, aged 62, of Trenton, was found on Wednesday morning, June 23, by his son James in a wooded grove at the rear of his home. He was removed to the house and placed on a couch and about an hour later passed away. A post mortem was performed by Dr. Stramberg, of Trenton, and Dr. Ballem, of New Glasgow, and was such that it was deemed advisable to send the stomach, and it's contents to Halifax for analysis. The place where the body was found gave evidence that the man had taken a convulsion, and his hat and coat were lying a short distance from the body. A can of paris green was found on the premises.
