WOMAN'S SKELETON IS FOUND.

Some Old Residents Say She Was
Killed by Indians in 1874.

The skeleton of a woman was unearthed yesterday by excavators on West Thirty-second street between Wyoming and Genesee streets. Old residents say that it is the body of a woman who died there about thirty-five years ago.

A man and his wife were traveling overland in a covered wagon and the wife died. Her husband buried the body there. Others say that they were attacked by a band of Indians who were camped just over the state line and that the woman was killed while the husband escaped in the darkness and returned the next day to find everything gone but her body. After burying her he left on foot and was never heard of afterward.

When taken from the ground most of the bones were intact, but crumbled shortly after striking the air. A few long hairs were found. Hinges and other fastenings showed that she was buried in a coffin.

TO USE IN CASE OF FIRE.

Call Box Donated the Little Sisters
of the Poor.

The police board agreed yesterday that for the safety of the aged inmates, in case of fire, a Gamewell box was to be placed in the home conducted by the Little Sisters of the Poor at Thirty-second and Cherry streets. The Bank of Commerce donated the box and the Missouri and Kansas Telephone Company will do the work of installation free of charge. Wires will be run to Thirty-first and Holmes street, where the Gamewell wires will be tapped. From there they will connect with Westport police station No. 5.
