Commits Bnlclde by Shoot
TEKUMAH, Neb.,, May 20.-(SpclaI.)
Lone Fremont, an Omaha Indian, com
mitted suicide Just Inside the Burt county
line on Thursday evening. Sheriff Phipps,
Coroner Gilkerson and County Attorney
Clark were called to the scene of the
tragedy, about two miles northwest of
Decatur. Fremont, who was a well-educated
Indian, having been a student at
Carlisle, had been going at a rapid pane
ot late. He placed a mortgage of $3,000
against his eighty acres a few weeks ago
and sin os then ho had been busy trying to
spend the money.
Ho pointed a loaded pistol Into his
mouth and pulled the trigger. His spirit
went to tho happy hunting grounds by the
most direct route.
Knowledge that his farm was gone may
have had much to do with putting his
mind to the bad. No inquest was held,
the case being one of suicide beyond
a doubt. About $S0 In currency and a
pass book showing $900 to his credit was
found on Fremont when the authorities
took charge of him.
