Two Indian boys started from Carlisle, Pa., last Tuesday on their way home from the Indian school at that place. As both boys were dying of consumption a physician accompanied them. Before reaching Fort Wayne one of the boys began to sink rapidly and it was the opinion of the physician that he would not live to reach his home, a coffin was procured at that place and placed in the baggage car until needed, which was between Hanna and Wanatah. A telegram was sent to undertaker Lepell, of this place, to be at the depot on arrival of the train. When the train reached this place the corpse was placed in the coffin and forwarded to his people.
