Frank Moore Was discovered Tuesday Night,
His Death Being Attributed to Suffocation
Frank Moore, World War veteran, about thirty-five
years of age, unmarried, was found dead Tuesday night about nine
o'clock, in a cave down the railroad from Lima a mile and a half or
two miles. Dr. Wood of Wadena was called and attributed his death to
suffocation. Inside the cave, which was a small one, and tightly
closed, was a still.
Mr. Moore had been working on the Ralph Gage farm
for the past two or three years, and we are informed came there from
McGregor, and had also been a resident of Marion. He has a sister
living in Connecticut.
The body was brought to and taken to the Austin
J.] Fox undertaking parlor, where it has since been, pending
information from relatives.
