WILLIAM HERRING, late mayor of the city of Seymour, and depot agent of the G.B. & M.R.R., died last Tuesday night. He had worked for 8 years without losing a day, when he caught a severe cold and, after an illness of 4 weeks, died. He leaves a wife and 4 children. He was universally beloved, had not an enemy in the county, and his loss will be deeply regretted by hundreds.
