The City in Brief: Charles Elveena, an Artist, Found Dead--Heart Disease the Cause/Died of Heart Disease/An Unfortunate Artist:

"I have the heart disease and I think I am dying. Please write to James Warrington, No.218 Penn Street,Camden,N.J."  That is the last record left of a somewhat famous and well-known artist,Professor Charles Elveena.  Elveena died in a common lodging house at No.11 South Clark Street, Saturday night, but the fact was not discovered until yesterday morning.  He has been in Chicago for some time, and lately moved to the place where he died.  He had a number of pupils in the city to whom he taught landscape and marine painting in oil and water colors.  
Elveena had been troubled with heart disease, and carried with him his address in case he might fall by the wayside. He complained of sickness Saturday, and after taking medicine was seen no more in life.  Professor Elveena was well-known as an artist in California, Cleveland, Indianapolis, and Detroit, the papers of these cities giving him very flattering notices.  Four years ago he was in Chicago, and a morning newspaper took occasion to cast slurs on his system of teaching. The paper, however, made ample apology after an investigation of the facts.  A letter of recommendation was published having attached to it the names of the lamented Harry Elkins, J.A.Fairchild, Moses Warren, the Rev.G.W.Samson, D.D.,author of "Elements of Art Criticism," and President of Columbia College,Washington,and other notable persons. //It seems that Professor Elveena had met with some misfortunes,and in the index to a well-filled diary he had were found many entries opposite the word "trouble". The word "luck" had not an entry set down to it.  He was 53 years of age, a Greek scholar of some ability, generous in disposition. He had a large amount of language and artists' materials. The body was taken to the morgue.
