Thought Sleeping at Noon
She Was Found to Have Died 10:00 A.M.
Later In Day
  Mrs. Mary Hadsell, for the past three years a resident of this city, was found dead in bed at her rooming place on West Maple street at 6 o'clock last evening, evidently the victim of a heart failure during an epileptio seizure.
  Her daughter Dorothy, who attends school here, had left the home in the morning as usual, after her mother had explained that she would stay in the bed. Dorothy returned home at noon to find her mother apparently sleeping. She did not awaken her and after eating lunch, left again for school.
  In the evening she returned from school and on finding her mother in the same position she was in, when she had left at noon she sought to awaken her and becoming frightened, called Dr. J. C. Donahue. On making an examination the physician determined that she had probably been dead since 10 a. m. of that day. Mrs. Hadsell had been in ill health for some time.
  She is survived by three daughters, Dorothy, of this city, Mrs. Robert Best of Cincinnati, and a daughter, Ruth, of Hiteman, Ia.  She was a member of the Christian church of this city and was known to many people here who morn her death. Funeral and obituary announcements will be made later.
