Looks natural in death.

A few friends were admitted to see Dr. Hoge's body. His face looked younger than in life, and all traces of emaciation which were evident during his last illness had disappeared. His countenance was natural and untroubled, and his figure, as he lay upon a couch, with his head and shoulders slightly raised upon a pillow, looked majestic. A photograph was taken of the deceased for the members of the family.
