HUMBOLDT, Neb.. May 27. (Special.)
Considerable excitement has prevailed In
this section this morning over the mys
terious disappearance of the wife of Thomas
Maxwell, a farmer living a short distance
southeast of the city.
Officers in the surrounding town 'were
notified to keep a watch for her and a
searching party wa at once formed in
the neighborhood to seek through the im
mediate vicinity and drag the stream.
The searching party at I o'clock found
the body of Mrs. Maxwell in the Nemaha
river about half a mile below where she
entered tbe water. The appearance of the
body Indicated that the womaa had drank
carbolic acid before throwing herself In
the stream. The husband of the dead
woman was much affected at the time of
the finding of the body and was with diffi
culty restrained from lesplng Into the
water and taking hla own life.
The woman haa been In poor health for
the last year and during tbe last six weeks
her Dines teemed to prey upon her mind
to such an extent as to cause her husband
and friend much uneasiness. From ber
action her husband thought it unsafe to
leave her alone and has therefore been
with ber constantly. t
Some time during Monday nlgbt Mr.
Maxwell had a bad (pell and the husband
wa up with her most of the night. Toward
morning he dozed off for a abort time and
awakened to find her mlsstog. A search
of the house and premise failed to reveal
a trace of the missing woman and the fact
that she had taken but few clothes and
was apparently In possession of a bottle
of carbolic acid, which waa gone from the
shelf, cused much fear for ber safety.
About noon a portion of her clothing was
found on the bank of the Nemaha, near the
Skalak bridge, and to the wearing apparel
waa pinned a note In which she bade goodby
to her husband and family,
