BABY STARVED TO DEATH

f lrcomnn-e llles from Ef
feet of I'rrvlnnn Trutmfnt.
A rase whlrh will rrcelve the at
tention of the coroner and police de
partment was disclosed Monday amonf tht
iriortnarjr returns filed at the office of the
Board of Health. One of the deaths re
ported was that of an infant whose nime
was given as Jennie Zlmmerer and whose
death occurred Saturday last at the Child
Raving Institute. The return Is made by
Dr. V. H. Christie on one of the postal
cards provided by the department for that
purpose, and In tho space marked for com
ment as to the cause of death appear the
words: "Starved. Attempted strangula
tion." The date of the child's birth is given
as AugriRt 14 and the date of death as Sep
tember 13, and the name of the mother Is
noted on the card as F. Zlmmerer.
In explanation of his report to the Board
of Health. Dr. Christie eald: "The child
died of starvation because It could not as
similate Its food, probably because It. had
not been properly nourished during the
first few days after Ha birth. I was told at
the Institute that the mother starved the
child and then attempted to strangle It."
Dr. Christie did not see the child until the
day of tta death.
ffnmr Secrecy A boot It.
The Identity of the child's mother Is un
known to the matron of the Institute, Mrs.
Edwards, who Is In oharge during the ab
ence of Superintendent Clark from the city.
Ehe rcfuecd to say who brought the child
to the Institute.
"I am In honor bound not to tell the
name of the party who brought the child
here," said Mrs. Edwards, "at least for the
present, for It was purely a charitable act.
I have Investigated aomo myself and no
good could come of making the name of
the party or the name of the mother public.
I am sure no one could be brought to Jus
tice. I understand the mother of the child
was an unmarried woman who does not live
In Omaha and who la not here now. We
have no positive evidence that she at
tempted to strangle the c'llld or to starve
It. Had I thought It would have done any
good I would have reported to the authori
ties when the child was brought here."
The child was received Into the Institute
under circumstances out of the ordinary.
It was brought there during the absence
of Mrs. Edwards, at 10:30 o'clock at night,
and received by an attendant.
Talk of Attempted Murder.
Mrs. Edwards said of the child's recep
tion Into the Institute: "A party brought
It here late at night and was told by the
attendant that no one was here to receive
It and It would have to be brought back
the next day. Then the party said the
mother of the child had attempted to mur
der It and if It was given back to her, she
would murder it. The mother was sick
In bed, so it was Bald to the attendant at
the institute, with the little one by her
aide. Presently the mother got out of bed
and crossed the room and then came back
to the little one. At this time the baby'a
face was very black. The party who brought
the baby to the Institute then took it from
the mother and accussed ber of try
ing to kill it. This the mother
denied. Under those conditions it
waa received that night, and when I made
an examination of it. I found that lta little
throat waa bruised aa though an attempt
bad been made to choke it. The skin waa
not broken, but the akin and fleah waa dis
"Now whether the condition resulting
from the attempted strangulation caused the
starvation of the child I am not prepared
to say, but the doctors said death waa due
to starvation. It waa a beautiful baby and
we hoped to be able to bring It through."
Coroner Bralley will make a thorough In
vestigation of the caae today. "According
to the death certificate," said Mr. Bralley,
"it looks like a case of murder. The caaa
should have been reported to the authorities
at onca by the management of the Insti
tute." Dr. Christie aald he did not believe that
the attempted strangulation of the child had
anything to do with ita death and he men
tioned It on the burial certificate because
he learned at the Institute that the mother
of the child had tried to strangle it.
Another Fortune (or Charity.
A $1,000,000 fortune waa recently left to
one of the charitable Institutions In the
east, and while the Idea ia very praise
worthy and will no doubt accomplish much
good, there are many other agencies which
accomplish Just aa much good. Take Hos
tetter'a Stomach Bitters for example.
During the past fifty years It has restored
hundreds of people to health by curing
them of Indigestion, dyspepsia, constipa
tion, billousneea and malaria, fever and
ague. It will do aa much for you today.
Try It and aee.

MARKET BREAKS THE RECORD
Five Hondred Car of Live, atm-k
Arrive at "oath Omaha
In a Day.
The largest number of cattle arrived at
South Omaha yesterday In the history of
the market. There were BOO care or 1J.
7!U head. On August 25 of this year 428
cars or 11.071 head arrived, which up to
yesterday waa the high mark. Practically
all the cattle were western rangera and a
good proportion of them were good enough
for beef. Two different packers each
bought over 1.000 head, which la some
thing rather unusual. The capacity of tho
stock yards was not overtaxed, but on the
contrary there was no more confusion
than on days when receipt are not half
aa large. The officials of the Stock Tarda
company had anticipated heavy receipts
this fall and made preparations for han
dling all the cattle that are likely to ar
rive. Trading was active from atart to finish
and the market held up remarkably well
In the fact of big supplies at all points.
The better class of cattle aold at practi
cally steady prlcea with laat week, but
the Inferior gradea naturally aold a trifle
lower. The break, though, was not at all
serious and operators expressed consider
able eurprlse at the aeemlngly Inexhaust
ible demand from both killers and feed
buyers. By , 3 o'clock in the afternoon
over 9.000 cattle were aold and weighed
up, and it looked then as though the pena
would be practically empty before night.

the elderly people, who are accustomed to
warm houses and more comfortable beds.
The prevailing complaints are colds, sore
throats and bowel troubles. There were
several very sick peoplo on the ground
who required careful attention. There
were several accidents, the most serious
of which was the falling of a (-year-old

Board Adopts Resolution Providing
for Temporary Increase of Poflce

Although the matinee session of the
Board of Fire and Police Commissioners

appointed to that position and Sergeants
Henry Welsenberg, D. Davles and A. Be

For "More Effective Working." '
The action of the board aa to the change

eBolutlon declaring "that the more effective

In addition to the action mentioned above
the board devoted some little attention to
instructiona to the chief and other members
of the police department, one resolution
