Coroner's Jury says He Died From Natural Causes.—Funeral this Afternoon at Irvington. August Brown died yesterday morn-, ing at his home in Biverdale township under strange circumstances. He had; been in Algona Monday and was apparently in good health, although he had been complaining for some days of not feeling well. He went home in the^eyejiing andTon hia way^tQpped ; at ( Dr] ^ B, Armstrong's In , Iryington ^illSf e, and -told- him ie was not feel- jng very welU had chills and fever, and wanted him to prescribe something for him. The Doctor gave him some quinine pills, or some'thing of that sort to break up a cold. Before going to bed he took some of the pills. He seemed to rest all right during the night, but early in the morping his wife was awakened by his groans. He died in a few minutes afterwards in seemingly great pain, and before assistance of any kind could be summoned.

The coroner and jury went down and heard all the particulars from the family, Dr. Armstrong and others, and returned a yerdict, the substance of which was as follows: That the said August Brown died at about flye o'clock and 30 minutes a. m,, this day at his home on Sec, 1 in Riverdale township, Kossuth county, la., from natural causes to us unknown.
