               MISS NAST DEAD.

Daughter of the Noted Cartoonist Expired
                Suddenly in New York.

    Miss Julia Nast, daughter of Thomas
Nast, of this place, died suddenly on
Saturday last in the house of Mrs.
Elizabeth B. Grannis, No. 33 East
Twenty Second street, New York.  Dr.
O�Hanlon held an autopsy and gave fatty
degeneration of the heart as the cause of
death.  The body was buried at Wood-
lawn, Wednesday.
    Miss Nast was a trained nurse and
like many others of her profession, had
become accustomed to using drugs as a
stimulant when fatigued and when
troubled with insomnia.  Her friends
think that she took an overdose of Fri-
day night and from this, death resulted.
She has been troubled with a severe cold
recently.
