about 9 o'clock last Friday morning.
His dead body was not found until
Into the same afternoon when seach

somo distance below tho point where
the nccldent happened.
When first found It was supposed
that tho unfortunate man had in somo
manner fallen into tho stream and
been drowned, but an autopsy reveal
ed tho fact that tho man's skull had
been fractured, and also that ho had
not taken any water into his lungs
after falling into the wnter. A search
