The body of an unidentified man was
found yesterday afternoon suspended from
a beam under tha loading platform In the
Wlckham sand pit, near the upper end of
Big lake, about two and a half mllea
north of the city.
The discovery was made by W. R. Moon,
of 204 South Twentieth street, Omaha, who
went to Big lake on a fishing trip. At
noon Moon sought shade from 'the heat
of the sun under the' platform; and to" eat
his lunch. After settling' himself Irt a
Comfortable position and spreading- his
lunch on a paper In front of him. Moon
noticed an offensive odor. He decided to
Investigate before "partaking of his lunch-
con, and, making his way back under the
platform, discovered the body of tha man
hanging from a beam. Decomposition had
set. In 'and tha body was discolored and
The team from which the body was sus.
pended was only about four feot from the
ground, and the suicide had evidently
strangled to death, as the knees were al
most touching the earth. The body, which
was In a crouching position, was suspended
by a small cord such as Is used to wrap
heavy packages. The cord with a slip
knot had been tied around the necTf.
The discovery took away Moon's appe
tite for any lunch, and he hastened to the
cottage of Caretaker Riddle, at the lake.
Riddle at once notified the police, who in
turn notified Coroner Treynor.
The body was removed to Cutler's un
dertaking establishment. Search of the
clothing failed to reveal anything which
would give a clew to the Identity of the
sdlclde. The dead man was apparently
about 46 years of aga and had the ap
pearance of a tramp. The clothing con
sisted of blue overalls, considerably worn,
a black sateen shirt, dark vest and coat
and a black hat. The man had a heavy
sandy moustache and several days' growth
of beard. He was about six feet In height
and of heavy build. Coroner Treynor ex
pressed tha opinion that the body had
been hanging at least two days.

Drainage Ditches Make Good.
According to the report of Engineer Seth
Dean at the meeting yesterday of the
Harrison-Pottawattamie Joint drainage
ditches in tha two counties demonstrated
their efficiency during the receirt heavy
ratna and attendant flood conditions.
There was, however, considerable damage
to crops in the fields from the rainfall
which because of the high stage of the
Missouri river could not be drained.
Two small breaks were reported by Mr.
Dean In the levees along the Willow
creek ditch but these could be easily re
paired. The 'lllow creek ditch carried
practically all the v.atcr that (lowed Into
it, declared M:. i) a t In his r: piri re
garding the Mil I ' ti.li r'.i.i-iL th ronirae
tor Mr. Ica:i iti l id had not yet re

the matter In hand. It will meet July
) In Missouri Valley and look the ground
over. In the event that the Western
Dredging company which has the con
tract for this ditch falls to remove the
sediment, the board will take steps to
have the work done and deduct the cost
from balance due the firm.
It was decided to construct a levee along
the south side of the Boyer river channel
at the head of Cut-Off No. 1. aa soon as
the right of way should be obtained.
The supervisors of Pottawattamie county
at the close of the Joint meeting held a

the manufacturers to cut out the require

There is no necessity of fat people suf
fering as they do. Most fat people are so
good-natured they do not care how they
look or how they get along during the hot
weather. As a matter of fact there is a
natural fat reducer that In the past sev
eral years has been demonstrating that It
will reduce fat and not tear down the body
or leave big, flabby rolls of skin and
wrinkles. This mo I hod Is the famous Mar
mola prescription, which is now prepared In
tablet form to meet the demands of fat
people in the summer and to enabl them
at all times to take their fat reducer after
each meal. One of these Utile tablets
taken after a meal turns that meal Into
good food for the blood and slops all fat
producing elements from going Into th
system. Marmola Tablets has an army
of men and women who testify to Its suc
cess, and you would tire reading what they
say of Its triumph. Marmola tablets nm
only stop producing fat In the boty but
they reduce flesh at the rate of from U

Resignation of Principal Velin Marks
End of Long; Factional
CRESTON. la.. July 20. (Special Tele-
gram.) The resignation of Principal J. T.
Velin of the Creston high school today
ends one of the longest and bitterest fights
In the history of the city schools. Trouble
arising over athletics and other student
activities, several years ago led to a strike
which envolved nearly every student In the
high school, and lusted fer nearly two
weeks. Many of the cil liens backed the
students and a number of the faculty even
took sides with them against Principal
Velin and former Superintendent O. K.
French who resigned some time ago as the
result of 111 feeling which also resulted In
his defeat for the office of county super
intendent. Constant strife has marked the
past few years at the high school, num
erous minor outbreaks having occurred.
Mr. Velln's action came entirely as a sur
prise. He will accept a position In the
schools at Cheyenne, Wyo.

Today's running time for the 138.6 miles
