"A few minutes prior to this hour, Mrs. Carter awakening, called her husband. There was no response. Albert Carter, who rooms nearby was called and upon investigating found Mr. Carter still warm in death." "The deceased has been ill since Christmas, at which time he was attacked by a complication of diseases resulted in his demise.
