      Found Dead in Bed at the Hotel Grand in Galt. Lived in this Town Several Years Ago.

      The following despatch records the death of a former resident of Waterloo in the person of Cyrus Eby, who resided here for a number of years. Galt, Sept. 13 - When an employee of Hotel Grand went to call Cyrus Eby, stableman, this morning, he having failed to show up at his accustomed place, he discovered the man a corpse in his bedroom. There was no evidence of disorder in the room, the occupant having apparently died while he slept. Eby complained last night of pains in his stomach. Before retiring he took a Seidlitz powder, which seemed to afford him relief. The doctors summoned pronounced death due to natural causes, one of them having knowledge of deceased being affected with heart trouble. No inquest will be held. Eby belonged to Bloomingdale, Waterloo county. He was 55 years of age, and had a reputation for industry and good conduct in the discharge of his duties. He leaves a wife and family, who reside near Bloomingdale, and was about forty years of age. The remains were taken to Little's morgue and thence sent on to his former home.
