Word was received here Thursday of the sudden death on a train in Wyoming Territory of John Rudolph of Brantford, who was manager of the Village Inn at Grimsby a few years ago, and who was well known here. Mr. Rudolph had been in California on a ranch of his brother's for some time and was on his way home to Brantford when the end came. He was evidently in poor health when he left, as the message to relatives stated that he was accompanied by a physician on the trip. Deceased was a man of means, and had a wide experience in the hotel business in different cities. The interment took place in Chicago.
