J. S. Gamon of Cedar Rapids, Iowa,
was in our city the fore ipart of the
wetk demonstrating machinery, and
on Tuescav went out to the home of
Sam Campbell, who bought one of
the new improved cultivators and
was showing him how-to use it.
In the evecing he complained of
feeling ill and was brought to town.
Dr. Jenes was "called and adminis
tered some medicine and treatment,
and Mr. Gamon retired to his room
up-stairs in the Jack Wood's hotel.
ADout midnight Jack heard him
moving about and went up and of
ferred assistance but the sick man
said he required nothing so Mr.
Wood retired. Presumably at about
three o'clock Mr. Gamon arose and
went to the back cf the yard and his
body was found lying on the ground
where he had fallen. Chas. Steele
and Guy DeBoer were the first to
discover him. Coroner Ufford and
Undertaker Straw were at once sum
moned. Mr. Straw said he evidently
had not been dead long. Witnesses
were called to view the body and the
man's personal belongings. ( Later in
the day a jury - was summoned and
Drs. Jones and" Herrick held an
autopsy which revealed that be had
died of heart trouble. Several hun
dred dollars, a watch and some pa
pers were found untouched on .his
person, which does away with any
idea of foul play.
The firm in Marshalltown, Iowa, by
whom he was employed, weFe noti
fied at once and the body was oidered
to be sent to Kansas City. We have
not learned whether he leaves a wife
or family. Mr. Gamon seemed to be a
pleasant gentleman and those associ
ated with him for tne past several
days speak in the best of terms of
him. On Wednesday evening the
body was sent to Kansas City.
