Dr. GARTEN Is Dead Cold Body is Found in Home--Murder is Indicated
Dr. H.F. GARTEN, Veterinary and old time citizen of Lindsay was found dead, his body cold, lying on the floor in his home at 2:30 Thursday afternoon. A revolver was lying near one of his hands. Apparently he had been dead for some time.
The discovery was made by Rube GRAHAM, who lives across the street east of the GARTEN home;  I.W. EAGAN and Leslie COATS, (the latter a guest at the GRAHAM home) were with GRAHAM.
These men notified city officials and the marshal, Frank MURRAY,  Justice of the Peace and Dr. PRATT, went to the scene and made a hasty examination, after which the body was taken to the BROWN Undertaking parlor.
An examination of the body showed a bullet wound, the bullet having pierced the body, entering just below the left shoulder and coming through the left breast just above the heart. Evidently the wound had been made by some one other than Dr. GARTEN. The revolver found near the dead body contained no empty shells.
Mrs. GARTEN had been living with other relatives lately, and Dr. GARTEN was occupying his home alone. Further details and obituary will be published next week.
