Died on the Way to Market. Sudden Death of Mr. Alfred Vickers, Halkyn. On Friday morning the neighbourhoods of Holywell and Halkyn were stirred to an unwonted extent by the sudden death of Mr Alfred Vickers, of the Britannia Inn, Hal- kyn, while on his way to Holywell market. Mr. Vicker6, in addition to being owner and licensee of the Britannia, carried on an ex- tensive business as a butcher, attending Holywell Market Hall on a Friday, where he was the oldest stallholder, and Flint market on a Saturday. About half-past eight on Friday morning lie and his son left the Britannia with a load of meat. Everything went well until they came in sight of Holywell. Mr. Vickers, be- ing apparently in good health. When passing Stamford Mr. Vickers' son, who sat along- side, noticed his father drooping. He stopped the horse and called assistance. Mrs. Davies, of Smalley's Cottages, oppo- site the Union Workhouse, went to his as- sistance. Then aid was obtained from the Workhouse, Mr. A. Roberts, the master, Mr. Hughes, the porter, and one of the nurses giving assistance. Mr. Vickers, it was seen, was quite unconscious. lie was carried into the house, but death took place immediately. Dr. J. Owen Jones arrived, but Mr. Vickers was beyond human help. The deceased, who was 64 years of age, leaves a widow and thirteen children. He was twice married, and had five children by the first wife and eight by the second. Much sympathy is felt with the widow and family in the sudden bereavement they have sus- tained. Mr. Vickers was well-known throughout this part of the county, and much respected and esteemed by all. He was of a genial disposition and obliging in his manner. His death removes one of the most popular men and is a distinct loss for Halkyn.
