tempted solution of the Scandibavian
Methodist church mystery, and one that
furnished a very strong cine with refer
ence to the suspi-cted fate of Miss Henri

Clausen wore false teeth. In order to as
certain if possible if tho' missing teeth
could be brought to light a most thorough

the furnace nnd found two teeth contain

discovered in the coal chute beneath a

and not more than twelve or fourteen
inches below the surface a woman's shoe
was found. The removal of another shovel
full of dirt brought forth a puirof overalls
which, it is claimed by the tenants of the
church were worn by their pastor. The
overalls were bloodstained on almost every

The furnace ashes, on licing sifted, were
found to contain the requisite number of

point is that they correspond exactly with
those on the blood saturated overalls. In
the afternoon the defectives found In a
si-eond-hand store Miss Clausen's trunk,
which the pastor claimed to have sent to
her by an unknown CApressjnan some
weeks after her disappcarunt.. The trunk
contained the wearing apiiarel of the miss
