Locates Body of Man She Says He Murdered Four Weeks Ago

Ogalalla, Neb., Nov 6— Mrs. Jennie Smith located the body of Vally Mann, four miles south of Ogalalla. Mann was murdered four weeks ago nine miles east of here.

Smith and his wife were traveling by wagon and Mann asked them for food. Smith, according to his wife, shot Mann behind the ear, rifled his clothes and took $8. Mann’s body was placed in a wagon and taken to the place where it was found. Smith deserted his wife in Denver, taking $900 of her money, and she then notified the police.

W.R. Cayler, a Denver reporter, brought Mrs. Smith here. They took the sheriff of this county with them in an automobile and found the body of Mann where she had told them it would be found. John H. Smith, the alleged murderer, is missing, but will probably be caught.

That had the desired effect and as soon as the stream began to pour down on her she evacuated and went up the street like a blue streak, so you see you were mistaken when you supposed it was lightning you saw!
