Theodore Austin, wlio resides at

self in his room about 1 o'clock. Mr.
Austin has been in very poor health
and little hope was held out for his
recovery, so to end the suspense he
pointed a .32 caliber revolver at his
right temple and pulled the trigger.
It is thought he must have been
thoroughly determined to end his
life, as one of the shells had snapped
Mr. Austin complained that he wa
feeling worse tnan usual and did not
get up when his roommate, John W.
Rose, did. He stayed in hed and the
maid did not get into the room to
make the bed in the forenoon. When
she returned in the afternoon she
listened at the door and heard heavy
breathing and called Dr. R. G. Wood
worth, who rooms on the same floor,
and had been into Austin's room in
the morning to talk with him.
When Dr. Woodworth entered the
room he found Austin stretched out
on the floor with a bullet wound in
his right temple and the revolver ly
ing close to him. Police Surgeon
l'hilbrick responded to the call, but
was unable to do anything to stop his
rapidly approaching death.
Austin came to Omaha about a
month ago from Kansas City and was
employed as dishwasher in a restaur
ant. He has a wife and two children,
who are supposed to he at some point
in South Dakota. It was stated at
the Young Men's Christian associa
tion that he had seemed despondent
for several days. An unfinished note
in his room said, "I am so lonesome."
