JURY SITS IN LEPPIN CASE
Body of Aged Man Who Was Mur
dered is Buried.
NO CLUE TO HIS ASSAILANTS
Nothing Han Been Heard of Man's
Son, Who May Have Shared
the Same Fate aa Ilia
The body of William Leppln, the aged
employe at the Milwaukee roundhouse,
who was murdered and robbed on the
night of November 18, was burled yester
day by Coroner Cutler, after he had em
panelled a Jury to view It for the purpose
of holding an Inquest at some future
time If something more tangible can be
learned. The Jurymen are Architect
Frederick. E. Cox, Bert Hill and I'aul
Leppln's dead body was found in the
weeds nearly 200 yards from the Mil
waukee roundhouse, where he had lived
with his half-witted on in a dismounted
box car stationed in th yards near the
roundhouse. He -had been shot In the
side of the head with a .45 caliber Colt's
automatic pistol, as indicated by some
shells found I'm his pocTteta and one
empty one lying' on the ground nearby.
The pistol, which had been bought by
himself tot protection, was missing, and
about S300 which ,the aged man was
known to, have had on. his person was
gone with- the exception of J2.ll found In
his overcoat pockets.
At 4 o'clock on the night of the murder
the car was found to be afire oh the
Inside with the 'door' locked with an out
side padlock. The old man's keys were
afterwards found In the car. The half
witted son disappeared that, night and
has never been heard of. He held the
only other key to the lock. It was evi
dently the purpose to convey the Impres
sion that the old man had committed
suicide after locking the car and setting
It afire. A letter was found In his pocket
telling of two. others he had written to
the chief of police and which were de
livered the day the body was found. It
has been shown that neither the writing
nor the signatures were those of the old
man, and they could not have been
penned by the defective aon. There has
been a strong conviction that the boy
was lured into a conspiracy to kill and
rob his father and was afterwards slain
himself and his body disposed of some
where. Not a trace of the boy has been
found at St. Joseph or Kansas City,
where they formerly lived. It is believed
that if 4ilivo he would have made his
way back there if he had possessed any
knowledge of a conspiracy against his
aged father. The body, which had been
preserved for more than a month, was
viewed by the coroner'a Jury yesterday
ufternoon. It was burled In Falrvlew

Intimately acquainted with him, says Fal

It. Before ho waa told anything about
finding the belted skeleton Mr. Humphrey
was asked if Fallers wore a belt. He
said he. did and gave a most accurate de
scription of the belt found around the
bones of the headless trunk. He said It
was a - narrow, black pebbled or grained

as would not likely have been bought by

Among the many statements mado In
connection with the introduction of
"Tona Vita," the new tonlo that la ac
complishing auch remarkable results In
Omaha, none are more Interesting and
"mpreeslve that the following by C. Y.
Walker of 3M7 South Nineteenth street,
Mr. Walker said: "I have been com
plaining for some time past. I havo
doctored almost continually during that
time and taken every remedy I ever
heard of, but with no success. I hail
atomaeh trouble and was nervous and all
run down. I couldn't digest my food and
whenever I did eat anything gas wouhl
form on my stomach and distress mo tor
some time afterwards.
"About a week ago I waa In Brandels
Stores drug department and saw a crowd
of people at the counter where this "Ton
Vita' Is being sold. I went up to the
counter and talked with one of the spec
ial lata there and he gave me a sample of
the medicine. I bought a bottle and be
gan the treatment- I saw immediato
results from the first dose, I now eat
and steep well and my food agrees with,
me. I feel strong one more and the
miserable nervousness and depression are
gone.' I cannot recommend this medicine,
Thousands In Omaha are afflicted with;
the same trouble In a more or leas ag
gravated form, aaya the specialists who
are her Introducing "Tona Vita."
"The strain of modern city life," said
on of these specialists, "causes ir
regularitles with regard to eating and.
sleeping and produce a most miserable
condition of the body, which la known
to us as nervous debility, that modern
plague whose chief symptoms are Im
perfect digestion, bowel trouble, nervous

headaches, backachea, sluggish mind and
poor memory, dull palna In the back, poor
circulation, cold feet, susceptibility to
coughs and colds, dlxsy spells, spots be
