The Coroner' Verdlrt Returned A
lirtter Found Among the iapvra of
The coroner's jury in the inquest on the
body of Fritz Susenmiehl.Qhe Scott coun
ty recorder who suicided Sunday morn
in?, returned its verdict this morning. It
imply returns a verdict of death from
suicide, but presents no additional facts.
Among other eyidence submitted to
the coroner's jury was a box of papers
belonging to Mr. Susenmiehl which Aud
itor Campbell had diecoy:ie 1 in Mr.Susen-
miehl's offics. Two letters and some
private papers were found in it. The
etter was addressed to Peter Susenmieh1.
This the jury would not open. The
other was addressed, "For the Publis."
Coroner McCortney opened this, and it
proved to be the last will and testament
of Fritz Susenmiehl. It was also some
what in the form of a letter. In it he
inted at some secret' which only one
other besides himself knew, but that per
son would neyer reveal it. It also stated
that his wife would soon go to Europe.
He bequeaths to his wife the amount of
property which the law prescribes, and
irects that his three sons are to have his
life insurance, and ends by bidding a last
farewell to friends and the world. This
letter or will bears date of July 29, 1889
From this it was evident that the deed
ad been premeditated for months, t tit
that he did not intend to do it until his
wife bad gone to Europe, as she was all
ready to start and would have gone next
week, but the trouble of Saturday night
seems to have hurried his desperate de
The funeral wi'.l he held tomorrow afs
ternoon at 2 o'clock.
Two more fatal cases of the typhoid
epidemic at Augustana college have oc
curred. L. M. Peterson, a student in the
ideological seminary, died Sunday, and
Dr. Wessel held an autopsy on the rc
mains, and pronounced his death the ou'.s
some of breathing the sewer gas. The
loctor found the work of the plumbers,
he informs the Diajtiitch, a perfect death
trap, without fresh air pipes or a'ny pro
tection to the inmates. If they had pur
posely tried to murder the occupants of
the rooms they could not, in his opinion,
have done a better job.
Charles A. Seaberg, aged fiftythree
years, died at the college on Sunday
morning of malarial fever superinduced
by sewer gas. The deceased and his wife
have hod charge of the kitchen at the
college for the past year. He was for
nierly connected with the Moline Pipe
Organ company. This makes four deaths
resulting from the unhealthy atmos
phere rendered so by the deadly sewer
Mr. Ekman, the tenor singer, is still
very low, and another student named
Berg is not expected to live.
J lie faculty cad decided to resume
classes yesterday morning, and an ats
tempt was made in the Latin class, but
only one mrmber turned up. So the class
was dismissed and the professors went
home in despair of getting an attendance
until the epidemic has subsided.
Peterson's body was taken in charge by
Undertaker Knox and shipped this after
noon to New Britain, Conn., his home,
Married at Milan.
At the home of the bride's parents, Mr

Geo. A. Higgins and Miss Acnes Honens
were united in holy wedlock, Rev. Dr.
McWright officiating, in the presence of
about forty friends of the contracting
parties. After the ceremony a wedding
feast was spread and the happy young
couple received many handsome and ap
proprlate remembrances. At 11 o'clock
a carriage arrived from Rock Island, in
which the bridal pair returned to Rock
Island and boarded the noon train on the
C.,R. I. P. road for the east, their ten
