II, A. .mtnn of llusln Harbor Found
Den.l In III ltoonl.
Henry A. Newton of Basin Harbor
was founJ dead In hc.l at his room In
tho Elmwood yesterday morning,
where ho had spent the night. Tho
cause of death was gas which poured
from a Jet left partially open and It
Is thought that death was due to ac
cident, although at tlrst a suspicion
of sulcldo was entertained.
Newton came to tho city Tuesday after
noon nn.l stayed at his lodging place
most of the time. He retired e.uly nnd
nothing unusual was noticed until tei:
o'clock yesterday morning wnen ,v
womnn working about the hall In
front of his room smelled gns. She
knocked on his door but gained no re
sponse and dually tried tho door.
which wa.s locko 1 on the Inside, 'ic
called for help and entrance was tin
ally ma le by forcing a widow which
opened over a roof.
Newton was undressed and in b"d
nnd had probably passed n part of t'.ie
night In slumber, Tho gas Jet w.is
about one-half on and tho room wns
completely filled with the tUlU. Be
side the head of the bed was a maga
zine left open, as though he had been
rending. The mun had, plainly been
dead for hours and Health Officer C.
F. Dalton and Chief of Police Russell
wero notliy.'d. They, neeonipnnlo I by
Grand juror Moulton, visited the room
ut once and conducted nn investiga
tion. The man was uWlcntly In comfort
able circumstances for his clothing
was good and a tax receipt showed
that he held property In Ferrlsburg
In the pockets wore found several
letters which gave his Hillress as Ver
gonnes, It. F. D. 3. Tho correspon
deuce Indicated that he had been con
sidering n relief for deafness. There
was also a wallet containing J13 anl
a gold watch, In addition to a mer
chaum cigar holder.
The body was taken to Corbln's iili
lertaklng looms and Basin Harbor
communicated with. It was found
that he was a bachelor 50 vears of
age. le Is survived by a sister. Mrs.
Stella Gleason, and a brother, Edward
Tho bojy was taken by them to Basin
Hnrbor last night.

chilly trying, and probably no none mor

bodily substance without thinking ol
tlie great good many sufferers from 11

this one disease are enough to make 11

Them Is probably not a elty or tut
