UNKNOWN MAN DIES OF EXPOSURE
An unknown man was picked up about 12:45 this noon by Charles Newton, a driver for the American Express company and brought to the police station where he immediately died.

He wore blue flannel underwear, gray flannel shirt, gray sweater, black trousers, brown coat and vest, brown overcoat, black cap with the “Lawrence One Price” trade mark in it. The only thing found in his clothing was a key.
