Grandview Merchant Dies of Heart Failure Friday Evening.
C.E. Nagley, a merchant of Grandview, was found dead in his bed in his room over the store at 8 o'clock Friday evening by Frank Lamansky, a friend.
Nagley's death, which was due to heart failure according to the decision of the coroner's inquest held Saturday morning by Coroner Collins of Letts, is believed to be indirectly at least, due as the result of a run for a train made by the local merchant last Thursday.
Nagley, who has been a sufferer from heart trouble for some time, was in Davenport on Thursday on business. Returning home he was compelled to make a hard run to catch his train. Friday morning he was taken suddenly ill and the physician who was called ascribed his illness to his exertion of the day before. He was ordered to remain in his room and rest.
Friday evening about 7 o'clock when Clyde Kent, a clerk in the store, visited his employer the latter declared he was much better and intended coming down stairs to the store during the evening. An hour later Lamansky went to the room and found Nagley dead. An order for goods written after Kent left the room was found on his desk.
Mr. Nagley had been in business in Grandview only since last spring. He has two brothers surviving, one living in Chicago and the other in Quincy
