Peters, of 172 Merrimac street, who has been employed by the post-office department as a letter carrier for many years, dropped dead shortly before 6 o'clock last evening in front of Wright's Japanese store, on Union street.  Mr. Peters had just finished his route and was on his way to the store to call for an umbrella he had left to be repaired when he was seen to stagger and fall upon the sidewalk.  It was at first thought that he had fallen in a fit, and word was sent to the post office, in response to which the superintendent of mails hurried to the scene in the parcels post wagon, but on arrival found that Mr. Peters was dead.  It is believed that heart disease was the cause of death.
