Find Woman's Body In Corn Field.
Scottshurp, Ind., Sept. C. The
body of Mlbs Mini Kolb. who has
been missing" from liur homo lit Vi
enna, two miles south of this city,
elnce last Wednesday, was found
early this morning in a cornfield
about a tmrter of a mile from her
hpme. Near tho body was found a
email glass jar which had contained
poison, "which Is believed,, tff have
et , jwallowed, by Miss Kolb. Miss
' Kolb lived with her brother, Henry
Kolb, but until last night he believ
ed that she had simply let. home to
Tislt their brother Conrad, wio lives
come five miles distant, as she had
occasionally done this without in
forming Henry of her Intentions.
Last night Henry Kolb learned that
his sister was not at the, homo of
his brother and he immediately start
ed a search.
Almost Immediately a letter was
found in the house written by Miss
Kolb stating that she hud made up
her mind to drown herself, bin that
no one was to blame for her action
but herself. She said that she wished
her property to be divided evenly
between her threo brothers and she
also left certain instructions regard
ing her burial. A great, many people
then joined in tho search for Miss
Kolb, although It was hardly believ
ed that she would carry out hor
threat of suicide. This morning, how
ever, her body was found as stuted.
Jlllss Kolb was about 30 years old
and Is survived by her mother and
three brothers, Henry, Fred and Con
rad, all of whom are farmers of this
county. No reason Is given for the
suicide, although It is known thnt
Miss Kolli had worried greatly over
some financial matters.

(By Stella M. Collart.)
Have you a friend that calls for you
To go to school each day,
That chooses you from all the rest
With whom he likes to play?
Then be a triend to him, my hoy,
That's faithful and sincere,
And never, never O, be sure!
Laugh at but with him, dear.
If he should make mistakes at which
To laugh you feel Inclined,
Unless your friend can with you
Twill hurt, you'll surely find.
So do not joke at his expense,
jVor cause a needless tear,
And hovel", liovuf 0, be sure!
Laugh at but with him, dear.
Quite often just through thought
lessness -- '
Small boys are most unkind;
So listen just one moment, please,
And bear this fact in mind:
If you would keep the friends you
(I hope I've made it clear),
Then never, never O be Bure!
Laugh at but with them, dear.
