tine Early Last Evening.
Three - farmers who were crossing
the- brfdge at Muscatine yesterday
evening, report seeing a grewsome
sight the body of a man floating
down the river. The waves were roll
ing it over, and the face was often
turned directly toward them. .They
hastened to inform the police' but
darkness Interfered with the search
conducted by the latter and the float
er could not be found. The authori
ties in the cities lower down on the
river were notified to be on the look
out and it is expected that one of
them will recover it. There is no
clew as to the Identity of the floater
but as there are several people re
ported as . missing along the river
north of hore it will probably be Iden
tified when, ft Is taken out of the
water. . , . . ; . ,.v
