Such was the verdict ol the coroner's Jury

Wednesday evening and ! 1 o'clock Thursday
afternoon suddenly censed to boat. It was
while suffering from some terrible pain , evi
dently In his head , that the letter was written -
ton to Mr. ClarU. The letter was unsigned
mid is as follows :
The principal witnesses examined , voro a
chambermaid and hell boy at the Grand Pa
cific , and the doctor who was summoned upon
, the discovery of death.
Mary Itlack , the chambermaid , testified as
to the circumstances under which she dis
covered Mr. Woodman's death. The lust
titno she saw him nllvo was at fi o'clock
"Wednesday afternoon , when on going to his
room on the second floor , she found him lying
on the bed on his rl ht side. Ho had his
ehoos and coat oft and had n handkerchief
ever his nose and mouth , and was appir-
cntly holding It with both hands' . His head
had partly slipped off the pillow. About 11
o'clock the same day she had soon him lying
on the lounge , and between 12 and 1
o'clock mot him in the hall. She
thouiibt ho looked unwell. Yesterday morn
ing at 8 o'clock shn went to the room again
nd tried to got In with her pass key , but
found the key on the Insldo and a card on
the door which somebody had sent up. Sup
posing him to bo still asleep , she went axvay.
\Vhou she returned at 'I o'clock the card had
fallen on the floor. The door was unlocked ,
and opening It she found Mr. Woodman
lying in exactly the same position she had
eocn him at C o'clock the previous evening
with the handkerchief hold over his mouth
and nose with both hands. Thinking that
something was wrong , she notified the
off ! co.
Dr. H. W. Stopel , who was summoned upon
the discovery of the body , testified that
When hu arrived Mr. Woodman had the ap
pearance of ono who had boon dead several
liours. Ho noticed on the tabloonly ono bottle -
tlo , marked spirits of camphor , and near It a
Blip of paper on which was written "Chloro
form throe ounce , aqua ammonia ono ounce. "
* The doctor dlun't examine the bottle and
Was unnblo to say what It contained. The
fact that Mr. Woodman was lying
Y on his right side , with his knees
drawn up and the handkerchief
clasped ever his mouth , Indicated that ho had
boon suffering a great deal of pain and the
doctor expressed the opinion that he was m-
lialing something to relieve pain. His heart
Imd suddenly ceased to boat. Either camphor
or ammonia might have this effect on an
axcltnblo heart. The doctor did not notice
anv odor In the room except that which comes
from a dead bodv.
S. AL Peterson , n bell boy , testified that ho

Hov. M. 15. Hush , who presides ever the Con
gregational church , eloped on Tuesday. For
two years Mr. Bush and his family have
lived in Sand Banks , coming from near
Springfield , Mass. Ills two daughters were
pretty girls , but all tha boys said Edna was
the belle of the town. She was fifteen then.
She is now n handsome , stately blonde of line
liiiure. It seemed to bu a case of love at first
Mr. Bush and his family haa hardly boon
settled In the parsonage before Will Rico
became a constant visitor. Ho loolc long
walks and rides with pretty Edna. Mr. Bush
never seemed to like Iho > oung man and sev
eral times Intimated thai his piescnco at the
parsonage was not at all pleasing. Will
Kico did not mind a little thing like that ,
though , and his visits became more frequent ,
if anything. At length Mr. Busu got angry
and in n blunt manner informed young Hico
tnat ho should stop calling on Kilna and told
Kdna that she should not receive the atten
tion of the miller's son.
Edna rebelled and the usual clandestine
meetings occurred. Her father ue.ird of
this and raised such a row that Edna told her
lover and an elopement was planned. On
Tuesday the Hov. Mr. Bush and family went
to a basknt picnic. As thoj passed the mill
Edna signalled her lover that she was roaay.
Ho went to Assistant Postmaster Van Piit-
ten , told him his story and borrowed his fast
horse , do also telephoned a friend in Parish
to have a minister on hand when ho arrived
thoro. When ho got near the grove ho tied
his horse and after a little time succeeded in
signalling Edna. They entered ttio buggy
and drove away.
Edna was soon missed and Inquiry reveal
ed the fact that she was soon going awr.y
with Hice. Mr. Bush , getting the host horse
in tbo neighborhood , started in pursuit. The
lovers reached Parish llrst , but there was no
minister in waiting and they telephoned to
Mexico to have one at hand at the postofllce.
Arriving at Mexico they were again disap
pointed. They could see Mr. Bush coming
down the road at topmost speed. No time
was to bo lost , nml putting whip to tholr horse
the lovers started for Hastings , llfteon miles
away. They reached there and wore mar

The weather will average hot during the lust

when a decided change may bo expected.
"I will ropo.it ihnt all should bo prepared

The prlco of linnl coal In Omaha U a ones-
tion that will soon bo deeply IntoroUlt. , . * o
the ellbcMs who ox poet to Itcop warm niiil
cotufortnhlo during the coining winter.
The city of Omahn consumed nbout sixty
thousand tons of hard coal last winter ac
cording to a careful ostlmato made by some
of the loading dealers , and If the coining
winter should bo severe It might require 75- ,
000 tons to supply the demand In Omaha.
The dealers are Just now In the midst of por-
ploxlng circumstances. Thov nnvo boon
hoping for weeks that the roads would maka
u cut on the regular trafllc rates so that
they could start In this fall as low or lower
than they started last full , hut as yet the rail
roads have i of used to make any concessions ,
holding lirnily to the WM a ton ruto from
Chicago to Omaha. The dealers liuvo hoped
to see a cut to about fr..BO or tfi.lil ) 11 ton , from
Chicago , nut they are beginning to fear that
the cut will not come.
" 1 know , " said Mr. .loft Bedford to a re
porter , "that there In money In hauling coal
from Cblcaco to Omaha at f5U a ion. I
don't see any re.isoa or Justice In kuonlng
the rate so high. I am afraid that wo shall
hiivo n scarcity of coal this winter , hccauso
the rates have boon so unfavorable that
many of the dealers have postponed buying
and the mines are short of help. Very few
of the mines nro running anything like their
full foivo and I doubt whether they will bo
able to 1111 the orders fast enough when win
ter sets In to prevent n coal famine. "
Sneaking of the situation , another denier
said : " 1 am afraid there will bo a shortage
In coal If the winter should provo to bo very
cold , because the roads will tint have the cars
to move the coal as last as It will be ordered ,
\Vo usually buv hard coal in Juno , but on ao-
cotint of the hieh rate that the roads have
persisted In maintaining wo have postponed
buying. There are several coal men In the
city now trying to make contracts , hut wo
will hold off u few weeks longer to see If a
better rate cannot bo had "
Sneaking of the contract for furnishing
hard coal for the public schools , one dealer
said ; "The firm that put in that bid for
$3.55 pei' ton for tiard coal will lose money
The coal cannot bo put in the consumers bin
in Omaha for that 11101103' . It costs J.'i.Sfl in
Chicago. Add to this f-l.'JO for hauling and
.10 cents lor cartage and you have gs.'J. ) .
There is no money in handling h.ird coal now
In Omaha at $ U. > . We have boon hoping
that the roads would cut the rate to ( i.M ,
ana then wo could put the price
nt $3.7. ) , and make a small
profit , but as It now stands we are soiling nt
fJ.STi simply to keep In the business and prevent -
