Mrs. Milam had gotten up about midnight to frighten away a dog and so far as known at that time Mr. Milam had shown no signs of illness. Sunday morning Mrs. Milam called her husband and in receiving no reply, laid her hand on his face and found it cold, which led to the discovery that he was dead with his feet hanging off the bed.
