let holes in his body two in the left arm and one above the left hip a wound below the nipple and a stab wound on the left side of the neck which evidently severed the jubular vein He was in his night clothes and this shows that he crime was perpe trated some time last night pre sumably about midnight Children See Corpse Children on their way to school this morning noticed the corpse but thought that it was merely a pile of refuse or old rags and payed no at tention to being in a hurry and anxious to got out of the rain This noon however some of thorn crawled in through the open door and im mediately discovered the dead man Notify The children rushed to theii homes and notified their parents who notified the police station and the patrol wagon was rushed to the scene of Uie crime The
