    • Joseph E. Butler Traveling Painter, Fall Dead Before Crowd

      Joseph E. Butler, evidently of Grafton, N. D. and a painter and paper-hanger by the kit of tools his baggage contained, dropped dead on the Higgins Avenue bridge before a large number of people last night. Butler who arrived in Missoula only five minutes before he died, was about 45 years of age, a large man, weighing probably about 215. He reached the city on Milwaukee train No. 3 at 9: 15, climbed the steps from the station to the bridge and started across. When he was about halfway over, Butler stopped setting down his two suitcases, and leaned against the railing. In a second he had fallen over dead.

      He was taken to the establishment of Coroner Marsh, where his effects were examined. Butler has worked all over the west, to judge by letters in his suitcases, but his home address is thought to be Grafton. Coroner Marsch wired the chief of police in that town last night. It is not known where Butyler has been working last.

      Either heart disease or apoplexy casued the death of Butler. He was a very heavy man and stood about five feet, eight inches. He had sandy hair and a stubby moustache of the same hue.
