L. A. Bidden

A stranger from Chicago came here, on the early evening train last Friday, took the buss up to the Gould House, left there saying he was out of funds, applied to Ed. Cook for employment as a carriage maker, saying that he had been working in the Garden City Carriage Factory that was not long ago destroyed by fire, which threw him out of work, and thereupon received from Cook and others 60 cents for his immediate relief. With this he went to Hughart's boarding house and got his supper, went to bed, and lay there until next day afternoon, when he got up and went away. That evening he was seen beside the railway near the Normal School, where he was found on Sunday morning dead. The coroner was notified and caused him to be taken to the court house and an inquest and autopsy held, which found his death to have resulted from congestion of the lungs. His name, as printed on his shirt, was L. A. Bidden. He was of dark complexion, five feet ten in height, and of common size. He wore dark pants and vest, light coat, black hat, sewed boots and underclothes, all indicating rather genteel habits. He was committed Monday afternoon to Undertaker Noel for interment.
