Okke Baumgartner, an aged man living in Pleasant Valley township, Grundy county, died very suddenly Tuesday afternoon from heart disease. The old gentleman was working about the barnyard and went into the house for the purpose of making some tea. A little while after he was discovered in the house, seated in a chair, dead. He had placed the tea pot on the stove and had the cups ready to pour the tea. He had seemingly died without a struggle. He was sixty-five years of age and had been a resident of that township for a good many years.
