International News Service
LOS ANGELES, Oct. 7. -- William S. Hart, notorious "two-gun man" of the silver screen, is reported tonight fighting a desperate battle with death in his home in Hollywood. He was stricken five days ago, with a mysterious malady which doctors in attendance on him cannot diagnose, and late tonight relapsed into a coma.

The physicians, after a long consultation tonight, said that they could not determine the malady which threatens the life of the noted actor. They believe it might be typhoid fever, they said, but are not certain.

The first symptom of Hart's illness came Monday when he complained of a cold. He took to bed at his doctor's orders, but gradually grew worse until he relapsed tonight into unconsciousness. In his delirium he struggled with the doctors and nurses in attendance on him and it took their combined efforts to restrain him.

Miss Mary Hart, his sister, is in constant attendance upon him. Mrs. Winifred Westover Hart, his wife, has not visited him. The couple became estranged several weeks ago, shortly before their son was born.
