Tho body of a dead man wns found a
few days ago in tho woods in Kentucky
opposlto Cairo. It is supposed ho cither
committed sulcido or was killed by tho ac
cidental dlschargo of bis gun. He lays, or
did on Tuesday, nbout four hundred yards
back of Mr. Cox's residence.
Tho shot that inflicted tho fatal wound
is described as having entered under tho
chin, coming out at tho top of tho head
tearing awny nearly nil of the upper part
of tho skull. Tho body has tho appcaranco
of having been dead for flvo or six days.
All tho description wo could got is that ho
ras a medium sized man, hoavy sot, full
faco with chin whiskers. Ho appears to
havo been a stranger, as tho parties who
found him nro well acquainted with nearly
all tho citizens of this .section, but do not
remember of ever having seen him bo
