The price Immediately wail raised to 20

According to some undertakers the new
law Is Intended to keep persona posing
n friends of the dead whoso body has
Dot been claimed from directing that It
be turned over to a medical college. One
undertaker said that the state superin
tendent of publlo Instruction formerly

of unclaimed bodies, and that he sent
tnost of them to Omaha when the medi

want to bury the body, they say anyone

cases the body would go to a medical
