VETERAN IS FOUND DEAD IN BATHTUB
Charles Gaither, Civil war veteran, was found dead in a bathtub in the hospital at the Soldiers Home about 8 o’clock Thursday evening.
According to Dr J.T. Haynes, the veteran violated a rule of the hospital and went to the bathroom unattended about 7:30 p.m. and locked the door. When water from the tub trickled under the door, attendants forced their way into the room and found Gaither dead.
Coroner H.W. Lehrer rendered a verdict Thursday that death was from a stroke of apoloexy.
