    The WICHITA BEACON Saturday evening, November 8, 1924
    Headline: MAN FOUND DEAD IN HOTEL ROOM
    Article reads:AGED GUEST VICTIM OF HEART ATTACK; LEFT NAME ON NOTE.

    Registered as W. Wagner of Colorado Springs but identified by a piece of paper found among his possessions as D. M. Stewart, an aged man was found dead at one o'clock this afternoon in his room at the Hotel Grant, 124 1/2 West Douglas. He had been dead for several hours. Death is believed to have been caused by heart trouble superinduced by rheumatism, fro which he evidently had been suffering from for years. His hands and feet were crippled from the disease.

    When the man registered at the hotel he gave his name as Wagner. The piece of identifying paper reads: "My name is D. M. Stewart. In case of accident notify Mrs. May Cramer, Lenora, Kansas."

    The City Undertaking Company immediately sent a telegram to the designated address, but no reply, has been received. When the man arrived at the hotel he said he hoped to complete a business transaction here, and confided to the proprietress that he had only one dollar to his name. An attendant who entered Wagner's or Stewart's bedroom early this morning saw him lying in bed but thought nothing of it. It was not until several hours afterward that it was learned he had died during the night. In the man's pockets were several patent medicine advertisements to cure rheumatism. He was apparently 65 to 70 years old.
