Braceville, Ill. – (AP)

Two bachelor brothers, who lived apart in two houses on their farm near here, were found dead in their beds yesterday under mysterious circumstances.

Mrs. John Peterson, their mother, went to Victor’s house and found him dead. Rushing to Oscar’s house, she found him dead also.

There were no marks of violence on either. Coroner T. H. Hoganson, Grundy County, said he would perform post mortem examination and hold an inquest. He said the brothers, although living in separate houses, always ate together and were not known to have been unfriendly. Oscar was 59 and Victor was 57.
