DIED AN OUTCAST.
A German, Unknown, -'Is Found
Dead Near Wabash
Krom Tuesday's Daily.
Yesterday morning about 10 o'clock
Coroner Doeck received the following
"WAiiAsrr, Nicn. OoronerCass county
wanted here immediately, found dead
(tiigncdj Fitr.n Knnim
Mr. Boeck immediately left for Wabash
aud on urrivinir there learned that the
Dotty of a man had yesterday morning
been found on the farm of Mr. Kruger.
It was lying under tho edge of a hay
btack where the cattle had eattn the hay
away and left a hole.
iNo marks of violence were found on
the body and it appeared the man had
died there of starvation or became sick
1 1 1 r - -i i f
unci tiieci. ptear iy was loumi a Knue
and fork and kettle and a few other
cooking utensils and it appeared
inougu tne leilow Had done ins own
cooking and lived secluded, as
nround had seen him.
cm the person ot the dead man was
found a citizenship paper issued on May
17, 1887 by the mayor of Einham, coun
ty of Ilaslack, Kingdom of Bavaria, in
Germany. The document showed the
man's name to have been Franz (Frank)
Burgstaller, born at Einham the 17 day
ofTfcbruary 1?37, showing him to be
fifty years of age. He was a taylor by
trade, and from the date of the document
had only been in this country a few
months, and of course was .an entire
itangcr, and must have excluded himself
from all society, camping in the woods
and living on whr.t lie could get. The
body was considerably decayed aud must
have been laying under the hay a week
or ten days.
Coroner Eoeck empaneled a jury which
returned a verdict ot cause ot deatn un-
know, but from appearances that of star
vation vr death from sickness,
i will be reinforced during the next two
da j s by at least five thousand picked
ltgulars. Every soldier will be heavily
armed. In addition to repeating rifhs
of the latent pattern each soldier will be
armed with two self-cocking revolvers
and will also he supplied with extra rounds
of catridges. So fur as known the police of
Chicago will be the only officers present
at the jail on next Friday, unless war
like demonstrations arc made by the an
archist element. Hundreds of extra
police will be stationed w ithin easy call
and the United Status soldiers will be
quartered within a few blocKs of the
place of execution, so that they can be
on the scene of the possible riot within
five minutes. A system of telegraphic.
alarms has been constructed and the
frst act af mb violence will be iminedi
ately suppressed. The officer who
furnish-.'d the above information stated
that the war department entertained
great fears of a riot and that in that
event there would be great bloodshed.

Died Jane C. Richardson was born
March 20th lSG-i and died November Gth
18S7, aged twenty-three years, seyen
months aud eighteen days.
Deceased was a daughter of Hon. Sam
uel Richard-, on of Eight Mile Grove pre
cinct. She was a young lady admired
and beloved by a large circle of friends.
ail of whom suffer deeply in this sorrow.
Her death was preceded by a long and
painful sickness. About three years ago
she was attacked with rheumatism, from
which she suffered greatly; this was fol
lowed by heart disease, which terminated
in dropsy, from which she was released
by the hand of death. Thougli her suf
ferings were long and severe, she bore
them with great patience and fortitude,
never murmuruw at Her lot.
She was a Christian, having accepted
the Savior, and confesed him before
men, bv joining herself to the people of
God. On several occasions during her
ilbuss she gave her friends strong evi
dence ot ner confidence in tne eavior,
and her readiness to depart and be at
enee. Shortly before she reached the
nd, she said to her attendants that every
thing seemed so bright, they thinking
she spoke of the light in the room re
moved the lamp, when she said "No, that
is nor u, everything is so orient! so
bright!" Thus she passed from earthly
scenes. There is not a shadow of doubt
but she has gone to share the blessedness
of that land where there is no sickness
and death, and where Jesus shall appear
in glory, she will be among the glorified
Her funeral was conducted by Rev
V. B. Alexander of this city, and a large
company of sorrowing and sympathising
friends joined in the. solemn service.
Mn. Editok, We desire through the
columns of your paper to extend our
heart-felt thanks to the friends who s
kindly administered to the wants of our
dear daughter Jennie, during her sickness
and death. We trust that He who hath
said "and whosoever shall jrive to drink
unto one of these little ones a cup of
cold water only in the name of a disciple,
verily I say unto you he shall in no wise
lose his reward." May He bless you
abundantly in this life and in the world
to come crown you with everlastiag life.
Mr. and Mrs. S. Richardson.

A special train consisting of seven
coaches and three baggage cars, the
former of which were filled with United
States troopi, arrived in Omaha yester
day over the Union FaciSc from Salt
Lake city, and mad3 a stop of twenty
minutes. The commanding officers
were extremely reticent concern'n their
movements and would only state that they
had been ordered to Chicago to garrison
the new fort. Fron a minor officer under
promise that his name would not be men-
tisned as authority for the statement.it was
learned that the commanding officers of
many western forts have been ordered to
send heavy detachments of regulars to
Caicago to suppress any riot that might
occur during the present week, and es

This morning what might and would
have been a serious little conflagration,
had it not been for the presence of mind
and activity of several ladies, broke out
.i 1 mi e j i
in tne lourtn ward. l no scene oi me
lire was the property of Judge A.
Sullivan, on Marble near 5th street.
On the "rounds is situated a double
house occupied by Mrs. May Kennedy,
her sister Miss Nana Sampson, and Fire
man McLennan and iamilv,.aid near lv
lives Engineer Beatty and family, but
none but the women folks were at
About 10 o'clock a fire broke out In
hind a wood and coal shed used by Mrs,
Kennedy and Mrs. McLennan and the en
tire back of the building was in flames
and a pile of kindling wood at each end
and the fence before being discovered,
The alarm was given by one of the
above mentioned ladies and two tubs
and a boiler full or water sitting in the
back yard about forty feet from the
shed were quickly transported there and
this not being onough to quench the
flames a pump near uy did good ser
vice in furnishing water and the flames
were soon- extinguished. The fire had
almost gained a hold on the adjoining
shed, in which a cow was tied and
there was also a considerable
amount of hay in the buildin
I lie sued wlncli whs on lire contained a
ten gallon can full of gasoline but lucky
for the ladies the lire did not reach it.
The fire burned for a distance of about
twenty feet and was just getting a good
hold on the inside of the shed when dis
covered. The ladies who formed tlii
voluntccr fire brigade were Mrs. Kennedy.
and sister, Mrs. McLennan and Mrs. B -at-
ty and sister. JNo alarm or screaming
was done and the ladies certainly deservo
credit for the good work and no doubt
Judge Sullivan will ever be thankful for
the rescue of his property.
1 iie hre was certainly set by some one
as there was nothing near in the line of
defected flues or ash boxes.
H e are authorized by the ladies to
state that they would like to see the well
drilled bncket brigade that could do
better work, and it would certainly be
had to find.

What am I to Do?
ine symptoms ot biliousness are un
happily but too well known. They differ
en difierent individuals to some extent.
A bilious man is seldom a breakfast
iater. Too frequently, alas, he has an
excellent appetite tor liquids out none
for solids of a morning. His tongue
will hardly bear inspection at any time;
if it is not white and furred, it is rough
at all events.
The digestive system is wholy outjof
order and diarreha or constipation mnv
be a symptom or the two may alternate.
There are often hemorrhoids or even loss
of blood. There may be giddiness and
often headache and aciditv or flatulence
and tenderness in the stomach. To cor
rect all this if not effect a cure try

and thousands attest its efficacy. 2
