Or. F. W. Johnson, of Rostnn. was

when he saw him he was lying in bed
w ith his temperature at 105. It was be?
low the normal inside of forty-eight
hours, but he died within two days.
The cause of death was not want of

"I have also heard." suid the witness.
"Unit Lieutenant TilTnny's death was
due to the kindness of his friends, who
permitted an over indulgence in delica
