Property Is Located Between Troost,
and Lydia, Fifty-Second and Fifty-
Third Streets -- Will Be

One large real estate sale recorded yesterday was the transfer of twenty-five acres of property at Fifty-second street and Troost avenue. This property was bought by the directors of a Jesuit college for the erection of a university on the site. The consideration named in the deed was $50,000. Rev. M. P. Dowling of the Jesuit school has charge of the plans for the new university. He stated that the college would be non-sectarian and that it would be called Rockhurst college. The campus will be named Rockhurst park. It is not known just when work will be commenced on the building. No plans for the buildings have been formulated as yet, pending the topographical survey of the property. The twenty-five acres lies between Troost and Lydia avenues and Fifty-second and Fifty-third streets. It is accessable to the Marlboro car line.

Miner Retired at Night Showing No
Serious Symptoms.

Thomas J. Flynn, Fifty-third and Elmwood, worked all day Friday in the Brush creek coal mines, and when he retired said he felt as well as ever he had. At 4 o'clock yesterday morning his labored breathing attracted attention, and it was discovered that he was unconscious. Dr. F. L. Dod was called, but Flynn died an hour later.

Dr. George B. Thompson, coroner, held an augopsy at Freeman & Marshall's morgue in the afternoon and found death to have been due to paralysis of the heart. "I understand Flynn suffered greatly from headaches," said the coroner. "His death could have been caused by overdoses of acetanelid, phenacetine or anti-kamnia, all used as headache powders, but they are great heart depressents. His clothing and house will be searched for such drugs. The heart paralysis could also have been from the inhalation of fumes contained in dynamite smoke while blasting in the mines."
