Lewiston, Idaho, March 25, 1886
Found Dead In Bed. - On Sunday last it was noticed by several that the usual stir about the premises of Mrs. Frankie Gale, living on First street, was not observed. And at about 4 o'clock P.M. investigation was instituted, and she was discovered in her bed dead, mortification having set in, and evidently had been dead for several hours. A coroner's jury was empanelled and an inquest held, the jury rendering the verdict that she died at her own hands by poisoning herself. She has been addicted to the use of morphine for several years past, and a one-ounce vial, two-thirds full, of this drug was found in her bed-room when she was discovered.
