Mrs. Palmer had held her son's head upon her bosom, where his life blood had crimsoned her clothing, ending his life where it had begun. 31 years before, by giving back to the pillow of his infancy, the red blood of bis life, in return for the succor of life which bad been given him by that mother now so stricken with the grief of his tragic ending. The body was taken to Scott's un- dertaking parlors, where It was view- ed this morning by a jury summoned hy Coroner Blcasdell to hold the in- quest. After viewing the body the in- quest was adjourned in order to sum- j mons witnesses for a further hearing. .Mrs. Palmer was rnet at the train by night than at any previous time this year.
