JIYSTERY 15 DEATH I MRS. OTTO VEAGER FOIXD DEAD IX HER BED YESTERDAY MORXING. AUTOPSY FAILS TO TELL WHY. AX AVAI/t'SIS OP THE STOMACH MAY THROW LIGHT OX THE SUBJECT. BTORY* OF THE WO MAX'S HISBAXD. Blip Has Been Complaining; of a PaJn in the Cheat, but It Didn't Cau«e Death. Mrs. Otto Yeager, living with her tiusband at 644 Jackson street, was Ifound dead in bed yesterday morning, having died suddenly during- the night. ■JWr. Yeager slept beside his wife, but knew nothing of her death until he arose about 6 o'clock to prepare his Iteam for his day's labor as an express jnan. His wife did not move when he grot up and thinking her asleep he went to the barn, relying upon her to awake ftnd prepare breakfast before his re turn, as was her custom. Upon enter ing the room half an hour later, Mr. TFeager was surprised to find his wife etllMn bed and spoke to her. Receiv ing no answer, he became alarmed, and hurrying to the bedside found her Btill in death. She occupied a perfect ly natural position, and had evidently (died without a struggle. Mr. Yeager was stunned by his dis 'fcovery for some time, but finally arous ed his neighbors, who at once notified Coroner Nelson of the death. Coroner JCelson viewed the body at 6 o'clock and ordered an autopsy held at the undertaking rooms of H. H. Schroeder, IS East Sixth street, at 4:30 p. m. It Was expected that the examination to [ 8 I : / !*x > ; ; A •& — j : — < 2 11 I / -'' \ '5 / \ , r^ — 1 Would disclose the cause of death, but wlii'ii the autopsy had been completes the physicians found themselves con fronted by an unusual condition of af fairs. All of the organs of the body wvre in a healthy condition, and no cause of death had been found. The Investigation did not include the stom ach and its contents, and these were removed intact, to be subjected to an analysis, in order to ascertain if, through accident, the dead woman had partaken of anything of a poisonous nature, or a diseased condition of the stomach was responsible for her death. The autopsy was conducted by Deputy Coroners Heseelgrave and Ritchie in the presence of Drs. Ohage, Finnell. Keep Well to say. but how shall I do it.'

Brimhall, Park Ritchie and Nelson, all of whom were satisfied that a cause of death was not present, though a slight ; ly congested condition of some of the ' organs was found, which, however, was thought to have ensued after death. Coroner Nelson stated last evening that an analysis of the con tents of the stomach would be made as soon as possible. In the meantime the body of the dead woman was turn ed over to the husband and will be buried from the late residence tomor row afternoon at 2 6'clock. According to Mr. Yeager, his wife died some time after 1 o'clock, as he was awakened by hearing her moving about the room at that hour and spoke to her when she returned to bed. Re calling this circumstance shortly after finding her dead, the husband searched the house in an effort to ascertain whether she had by mistake or design taken any poisonous medicines or drugs, but could find no trace of any thing of the kind. There had been nothing of this nature kept about the house and no recent purchases could be discovered. "My wife had been complaining of a pain in her chest for several days," said Mr.Yeager to a reporter for the Globe, "and Thursday she and I went to stay at the home of my brother-in-law, Albert Schroeder, 149 East Thirteenth street, so that she could be relieved of the affairs of housekeeping and get a rest. She went to bed and remained there until Fri day night, when she said she felt quite well, and insisted upon our returning home for the night. This was about a o'clock. She was cheerful and ap peared much recovered. We retired about 10 o'clock and a few minutes after 1 o'clock I woke up by hearing a door shut. I found my wife was not in bed, but a moment later she lay down, replying to my question about, her condition that she "felt all right." She wjpnt to sleep and nothing hap pened'to alarm me until I came back from the barn after feeding my horses, when she did not answer my calf/Then I shook her gently, and, becoming alarmed, I placed my hand over her nostrils, when I though* I felt a faint breath. This may have been my im agination, however, as her body was almost cold. "In the face of the Coroner's investi gations, I canot understand what could have caused my wife's sudden death. I am positive that she would not take her own life by secretly administering St. rviL's rnrftv senatorial, districts. poison to herself, because, while she was sick at times, she was never ser iously ill, and we lived very happily to gt-ther. Only recently she had been buying new furniture for the house, and we had discussed securing the services of a physician for the trouble with which she was effected, though we had no idea what it was. No, my wife's life was not insured, and I am sure she died from natural or accidental causes." Mrs. Schroeder, a sister of the dead woman, with whom she was staying, stated that she had found Mrs. Yeager in the hallway of her own hou^e, Thurs day noon, almost in the throes of strangulation from a coughing fit. It was she who had then suggested that Mr. and Mrs. Yeager accept her hospi tality until Mrs. Yeager should feel In the Spring The intense misery caused by dys peptic troubles cannot be described. The distress after eating, palpitation of the heart, inability to sleep and other symptoms use up or wear out so much bodily strength that all ambition, en ergy, and even hope seem lost. The toning- and strength-giving qualities of Hood's Sarsaparilla are Just what are needed in such cases, as described In Mrs. Smith's letter below: "C. I. Hood & Co., Lowell. Mass.: "I have been run down in health for several years; was tired, languid and had little or no ambition. After eating I had a feeling of distress in my stom ach like a lump of lead. I also suf fered from pains in my forehead over the eyes and in the small of my back. Palpitation of the Heart affected my sleep and I was not able to sleep on my left side. I had doc tored and taken different preparations without realizing any good. I had read of how Hood's Sarsaparilla had helped many, and friends urged me to give it a trial. I decided to do so.as the testt monials of Its efficacy seemed so con vincing. Before I had completed the first bottle, I began to feel better and the improvement continued!. I Am Now Perfectly Well. I do not have any pains In my forehead or back, and am free from all palpita tion of the heart so that I can sleep well on either side. My food does not | distress me and I have strength and ambition for all the work I have to do. I advise friends to take Hood's Sar saparilla and I think there Is nothing that will compare with It."

When Mrs. Yeager came to her house, Mrs. Schroeder says she went immediately to bed and remained there until Friday night, when she went home with her husband. Asked if the dead woman had eaten anything Friday before leaving the house, Mrs. Schroeder said that Mrs. Fred Meiers, who occupies a house in the rear of Schroeder's. had brought a sick woman a cup of chocolate and several slices of bread about 6 o'clock. Mrs. Yeager, she said, had drank nearly all of the chocolate, but had eaten none of the bread. Mrs. Schroeder says she drank the remainder of the chocolate herself before cleaning the cup to re turn to Mrs. Meyers. The rest of Fri day and that part of Thursday, when she had been at her house, Mrs. Schroe der says her sister ate and drank very little, and only that which she had prepared for her. Mr. and Mrs. Yeager had been mar ried but fifteen months. The dead woman was twenty-six years old, and there are no children. She was for merly Miss Louisa Phillipson, having been raised in St. Paul.

The incorporates are: Theodore F. Kock, St. Paul; John H. Smith, Detroit, Minn.: Henry- Keller and R. J. O'Connor, of Sauk Center. It is understood that two Wealthy Chicagoans are interested in the company, representing the Chicago Wholesale Grocers' association, which is completely at the mercy of the sugar trust and seek some avenue of escape. A determined attempt will be made to se cure the planting of enough seeds to justify the erection of one on-HtfoTjictories this year. The promoters of th* eoai|>any have already interested the farms** thjjoughout the state in the project and it is claitned that most sat isfactory assurances of support and co-opera tion have been received. The sympathy for the movement Is espe cially warm at Hastings, which city has al ready offered a bonus for the erection of a factory there. From this it looks as though the first factory, to cost $250,C00, would be located at that place. Senator Keller, who has been particularly active in behalf of the industry, presided at a meeting yesterday in the senate chamber. The greatest enthusiasm was manifested in the subject and steps were taken to foster the planting of sugar beets in Minnesota. Sev eral thousand pamphlets nave been printed in English, German and Scandinavian, under the direction of Senator Keller, and they will be distributed widely throughout the state.

Wabaslia, 4th, sth and St Peter Sreets, ST, PAUL, PHOTOGRAPH Of Death May Be Retired l»y Tbls <;<»rman Scientist*)! Dtxcovery. The discovery of the so-called Roentgen rays has been followed by a sensational development, due to a German scientist, Prof. E. Friedrich. Prof. Friedrich was engaged in study ing the practical application of the Roentgen rays when he made a dis covery which has produced a great sensation in both scientific and in lay circles, says a Vienna correspondent of ihe New York Journal. The professor succeeded In photo graphing death— in other words, the rays which he discovered enable it to be definitely ascertained beyond a shadow of a doubt when life actually leaves a human body. Since these in vestigations he has communicated his discovery in a short letter to the Vien na Imperial .Academy of Science. At the present moment the medical profession possesses no means of ab solutely stating that death has taken place. Doctors only draw their infer ences in support of this view from the appearance of certain changes in the body. These, it is true, are usually conclusive, but they are not infallible, and there is always the possibility that mistakes may be made and that a person who is only apparently dead may suffer the horrors of premature interment. Prof. Friedrich now affirms that the rays which he has discovered — he calls them Kritik rays— reveal with absolute reliability the entrance of death into the body. To quote his own words: "The Kritik ray? are directed out of a vacuum tube, and are so piercing that they almost immediately penetrate the body upon which for the purposes of experiment the investigator has turn ed them. Those rays produce images on the photographic plate which are of a different character according as they are taken at a living or of a dead body. The photographing of the hand is the easiest experiment in test work of this kind. If, when it Is laid on the photographic plate and subjected to the Kritik rays, it appears as a living hand does under the Roentgen rays, viz., with all the bones clearly distin guished—then beyond question the per son is alive. If, however, the hand flefca not yield its characteristic form under this process the person to whom it belongs is undoubtedly dead. "I have arrived at this result by a whole series of experiments, which I regard as absolutely reliable. The new vacuum tu!>ea which thus serve for a post-nartem diagnosis will have to t» employed by every doctor."
