Killed by a Fall.
Christian Kramer, an old German, was found dead last Friday morning in the cellar of the American House. Drs. Boerstier and Goss held a post mortem examination, demonstrating that death ensued from a fractured skull, sustained in all probability by an accidental tumble down the steep cellar steps. The fracture was a severe one, extending from the frontal to the occiput, and must have caused death almost instantly. The coronial investigation resulted in a verdict in accordance with the above facts, and during the afternoon the remains of the hapless old man were conveyed to the city cemetery and buried.
