Indirectly due to a chill which he
caught last week and which at first was
not regarded as serious. Parnell. how
aver grew worse and a physician wa
called In, with the result that the pa
tient waa ordered to take to his bed.
This was Friday, and from that time
Parnell lost strength and finally suc
cumbed. Tbe exact nature of bis dis
ease Is not known at present. From
the day he took to bed. however. Par
Hell's health has been such as to ne
