Died From A Hemorrhage

Edward Enggass Succumbed Before Medical Aid Could Reach Him

Edward Enggass of 532 Charlotte street, a plumber, died at 2 o’clock yesterday afternoon from a hemorrhage of the lungs in Mier’s drug store, 526 Independence avenue. He was a victim of pulmonary consumption, and the hemorrhage was the result of overexertion.

Enggass has been in poor health for some time, and left St. Margaret’s hospital in Kansas City, Kas., only three weeks ago. Yesterday afternoon he left his home to call on Miss Lulu Emmerson at Sixth and Holmes, and then went to Mier’s drug store, where he drank a glass of soda water and then started for home. When he got outside he became weak, sank down and had the hemorrhage. He was assisted into the drug store, where he died in a few minutes. The body was removed to his home in Charlotte street.

Mr. Enggass has lived in Kansas City fifteen years, coming here from Indianapolis, Ind. Deputy Coroner Wheeler will hold an inquest over the remains of Mr. Inggass to-day.
