LYONS' REMAINS ARE FOUND.
Brother-ln-Law of D. Boy Bowlby, Who
Disappeared Two Years Ago.
The remains of Adam B. Lyons, a
brother-in-law of D. Roy Bowlby, of
this city, have been found in the wilds
of Idaho after all trace of him had
been lost for over two years. Mr.
Lyons formerly resided at Wyoming,
III. He was in partnership with M.
W. Miner ami shared a cabin on Sul
phur creek, Idaho county, with him.
He became very ill with mountain
fever, and waking once from sleep
while Miner was sleeping soundly
wandered off alone. When Miner
awoke he went in search of hismissin
partner, and called upon others to ioi
him. But all they could find of the
man was his walking stic-Kand apiece
of canvas taken from the hut. These
were on the bank of the creek, whic
was swift and swollen at the time
and the searehers naturally conelude
that Lyons had fallen into the water
and be'en drowned. Miner returned
to his cabin and posted a notice giv
ing the facts concerning his partner
disappearance, and requesting an
person who should learn anything o
his fate to send word to his home 1

Ihe remains were found on the op
posite side of the creek from th
cabin, showing that Lvons, in fp
of his weak condition, must have sue

to indicate that he was wanderin
aimlessly in a delirium, as he was far
