DEAD PIANO TUNER WAS WELL KNOWN S. D. Fry, who died suddenly in a Bowery hotel in this city Wed nesday, seems not to have borne tho good reputation elsewhere thatwas reputed to him here. V. II.

Fry's in timacy with Mrs. I,cedy was the cau?e of the trouble. A brother of the deceased, fiady Fry, lives at Enid, Ok. (From Saturday's Pally.)
