Oscar A. Nelson, aged 27 years, son
of X. I. F. .Nelson, the grocer, 2025
Fourth avenue, suicided presumably
Saturday night, his frozen body being
round tins' morning in a Milwaukee
railway box car on First avenue be
tween Sixteenth and Seventeenth
streets. P. J. Kinney, a car repairer
for the road.' discovered the body.
Despondency over poor health caus
ed the young man to take his life.
First lie cut the arteries in both
wrists, closing the penknife with
which he did the cutting and replacing
it in his pocket, but apparently fear
ing that death would come too slowly
by this process, he placed, a 32-caIibre
revolver 1o his head and fired a bullet
into his brain.
The body was removed to the Knox
undertaking, rooms, where a .search
of the clothing disclosed the identity
of the deceased. His name was on a
prescription in one of his pockets and
also on his underwear. His father
was notified and identified the re
mains as those of his son.
Oscar had been missing from home
since Saturday morning. He told his
father that he did not believe he would
ever get well, and said that he might
as well die then as to linger along
suffering and burdening the other
members of the family. His father
cheered him and told him that he was
not a burden, and that he would do all
he could for him. Oscar was to have
returned that morning to a sanitari
um at Maquoketa. Iowa, where lie
had been for a month for treatment,
but at the last moment abandoned

conversation said good-bye and dis

to the railroad yards and entered the
car and killed himself. Oscar had
been in ill health for three, years. He
suffered from a nervous affection. He

the door, and then cut in a verse of
"Ain't Dat a Shame?'
