He dwelt alone, his recreation the study^of hundreds of opera scores, piled about him in the little room. Last night, when he came out of a grocery store in the downtown district, his simple purchases in his hand, he stepped from the curb in the path of a speeding- taxicab. Five minutes later, he was picked up, a/dozen bones crushed. Inarticulate, to die eight hours later in a hospital. John Bagley was loved by those whose flowers he had tended for twenty years.
