of the delay by so many local boards

HUSMANN REMAINS EXAMINED

the man's death. The body was taken

ach was taken out and was taken to

to indicate this but the matter will not
be settled until the report of the uni
versity experts is received.

the lids on the stoves rattled and that
dishes in the cupboards shook violent
