taiMrht music In "Omaha, and he haa num
bered Among hla ?papll. tbe society people
of thtfclty. He wee eminently successful,
social If and financially,- but a year ago
he became ill and was twabi to attend to
his teaching, until finally he became de
pendent upon the charity of hla friends.
HIS proud iplrlt rebelled and ha sought
to end his Ufa.. For some years be had
been jUalng digitalis as a . heart stimulant.
Om of hts friends protested , that some
daytJie would take an .overdose and kill
himself. He walked, into the Hosps art
store.: on Douglas strest'., Thursday afternoon-
and annnouaoed to his friend, Lucius
Fryor, of the store; ,

At this time the- man's heart was beating

was aent bom and, treated. ..... ,
iTbeugh he haa lived la Omaha for thirty.-two-
years and . baa scores of Intimate
friends, not one t them ever, heard him
speak of his Immediate family. It was
kaown that ha was of noble parentage and
that .he was sent to America as a remit
tance man, after having bad trouble in the
hjdany years . ago the , remittance was
stopped and Blankenfeld . began to teach
music and from the first he was successful.
Since he reached Omaha he. Inherited one
fortune of WMOO and, one. oil $36,000. He
belonged to the old school of "Spenders"
and short time Jn New tork won for him
the title of the "Champagne Prince," and
lost to him his. fortune. ,
But he was a good loser and never com
plained. He never asked for help, until he'
waa,. completely down kand out financially,

morning, though able to sit up and talk,
he refused to say a word regarding his own
affairs. He had talked for several months
of taking his own, life because he. was too
ptood to be a dependent, so his action was
not a surprise to his .friends.

KILLING FROST FOR STATE
Omaha, Which Gets Bain After
Twenty-Six Dayt, ii Exempt.
TOO CLOUDY HEBE TOE THAT
Temperatare Drops Friday Night ana

paaled y Col4, Haw
The two most notable facta about this
rain are these:
' It was the first rain Omaha has had in
twenty-six days, and It was to be followed
by killing- frost
The rain come Friday night and Saturday
morning-. The precipitation was about one
tenth of an inch up to noon of Saturday,
and it was steadily falling. Colonel Welsh
will do his level best to keep the moisture
back, until after tbe electrical parade, cor
onation and Cinderella balls.
Th rain waa th flrat Omaha haa had
since Auguat SI, when during that fore
noon about a third ot an inch of moisture
managed to percolate through the ambient
atmosphere hereabouts. Th exact meteoro
glcal measurement of th rain at that time
was .27 of an Inch. t- ; . ?
The rain of Seturday. was general over
the stats end of Immeasurable benefit. The
precipitation was generally light. ,
"Cover your tomato, squash and cucum
Th weather department gave out the
signal that a killing frost was liable , to
visit Nebraska. Saturday night The
gloomy prediction applied to other portions
of the stat than Omaha. Omaha' Im
munity lay In the fact that a cloudy con
dition prevails that might prevent the frost
corpuscles from penetrating through . In
sufficient quantity to do any material dam.
Tha moat conservative estimate that th
weather bureau can put on the matter was
"Colder in this vicinity Saturday night
with probable frost and continued cool,
with fair Saturday night and Sunday."
Enow Is reported in th mountain dis
tricts 'and temperatures prevailed Friday
night lu th Yellowstone park of S, Wyom
28, at Cheyenne 24, and 32 at Denver. There
Is a prospect of warmer out in the stat
Sunday, and from this fact It Is probable
that Omaha may eoape-any serious ex
ceases of low temperature with the cloudy
conditions now existing. .
