The cause of death had not been determined by Dr. Dean STINSON, county coroner, at the time the News-Sentinel went to press.
Mr. Dague returned Saturday from a business trip to Indianapolis. Sunday morning he slept late and again this morning. When he failed to get up by 10 o'clock, Mrs. Dague called her neighbor, Mrs. Estil BEMENDERFER who is the wife of State Policeman BEMENDERFER.
