Been Implicated by Circulated
Toulon. 111., March 10. In order to
substantiate or discredit rumors which 1
have been In circulation In this and
i.eighboring towns for a number of
days to the effect that an element of
mystery and suspicion surrounded th-
passing away recently of Mr. and Mrs.
Henry Nowlan of Toulon, an Inquest
was conducted by Coroner J. C. Blais
dell, and several witnesses were ex
amined. The jury, of which Joseph Chase was
foreman, returned a verdict, giving its
opinion that both Mr. and Mrs. Now- j
lan died from natural causes. A near j
relative of the departed was implicated j
by the rumors, and it was the desire of j
members or the family that an investi
gation be made to dispel the cloud of
suspicion whjch had been created by
the vague stories.
TALK OF POISONING.
It had been hinted that both Mr. and
Mrs. Nowlan exhibited peculiar symp
toms during the illness preceding their
I death, and the report was circulated
that poisoning had something to do
j with their condition. It was reported
mat ptomaine poisoning caused by ea-
; ing chicken was one of the eomplicv
j Uous. The stories, however, conveyed
i an element of suspicion that perhaps
poison had been administered malic
; iously to Mr. and Mrs. Nowlan, and the
, tales became so persistent it was de-
' cided by State's Attorney Rennick and
, Coroner Blaisdell to conduct an inquest
and make an investigation.
This was done accordingly and the
testimony of members of the family
and two physicians. L. U Long and R.
L. Buffum, was taken. Both doctors
gave it as their opinion that Mr. and
Mrs. Nowlan had died from natural
causes. They stated they were fami!
iar with their cases and expressed no
doubt but that they passed away with
no suspicious circumstance surround
ing the cause of their demise. There
was talk of exhumir.g the bodies to de
termine by examination the cause of
death, but the coroner's jury felt this
was unnecessary. Mr. Nowlan died
