This morning Salem H. Rowe was found dead in his room in this town. Mr. Rowe was about 55 years old and a member of the oldest and most prominent families of this place. He was unmarried and roomed alone, having his meals brought to him. Yesterday he was well and went from the store last night in his usual health. This morning he was found dressed and wrapped in bed, while his supper was unfinished on the table. His limbs and muscles were contracted, and it is supposed he had a congestive chill.
