      HEIR TO A FORTUNE, VIRGINIAN DROPS DEAD
      [Special to The Times-Dispatch]

      Denver, November 8. - T. H. Orton, a
      hotel man from St. Charles, Va., and
      heir to a fortune in Denver Real es-
      tate, dropped dead in his room today
      of heart trouble

      Orton came to Denver three months
      ago to look after the large estate of
      his mother, Mrs. Sarah A. Bissell, who
      was declared mentally unsound and
      unable to look after her affairs. She
      was sent to the Molkery[sic] Sanatorium
      where she is at present.

      Orton and his sister, Mrs. Nannie[sic]
      Van Rensselaer, of Mayland[sic], Mass.,
      were the only children and heirs of
      Mrs. Bissell, whose husband, Harry
      Bissell, was one of the large real es-
      tate owners of Denver. Orton was
      walking through the hallway near his
      room, when he fell and began gasping
      for breath. A servant ran to a near-
      by drug store and called the prescrip-
      tion clerk, but they were unable to
      aid him, and he died immediately.
