The Lewiston Teller|
March 4, 1898
M. A. Lawson a stranger in the city died last Sunday afternoon of paralysis. He was brought to the city from the country for treatment but never recovered consciousness after the first attack. Unsuccessful efforts were made to locate the relatives of the deceased who might claim the dead and honor him with the last rites of sepulchre but it finally became necessary for the county to bury the friendless man.
