They are mostly born without clothes.
Nearly all have clothes thrust upon

DIEC ALONE IN THE WOODS.
A Mysteri .us Disappearance at Last Ac
Hamburg, Conn , Oct. 20. William
Hart and George Huut, two young men,
while hunting in Otter swamp Saturday,
made a ghastly find which solves the mys
tery surrounding the disappearance of
Myron Nolan, of this place, thir
teen months ago. A year ago in Septem
ber Nolan went into the woods for the
purpose of gathering hazel nuts, and from
that time until Saturday nothing was
heard or seen of him. For several days
searching parties scoured the woods,
where was supposed to be, but no trace of
him could be found, and public opinion
was about equally divided as to whether
he had killed himself or deserted his
Was Scratch I as at a Pimaa Skull.
Otter swamp is a vast stretch of lowland
that is not very frequently visited, and
many portions of it are not crossed as
often as once in a year. Saturday after
noon Hart and Hunt were called into a
dismal part of the swamp by the barking
of their dogs which they Buppoed to be
on the trail of a mink. When they came
up the animals were at the foot of a tree
scratching at a human skull. The hunt
ers could not find the other parts of the
skeleton. Leaning against a rock near
by they found a gun. much rusted and
with rotting stock.
A Skeleton Vp a Tree.
While searchiug about the tree one of
the men looked up into the branches and
saw portions of a skeleton hanging from
between the trunk of the tree and a large
limb that grew up from it and very close
ly to it. Among the rib bones of the
skeleton the squirrels had built a nest.
Hunt went up and dislodged the skeleton,
and with the gun and gamebag it was
brought to town, where the two latter
were easily recognized as Nolan's.
Probable (low or His Death.
How Nolan came to his death there is
no way of proving, but it is supposed that
he climbed the tree to examine a squirrels
nest that he had shot into and losing his
foothold had fallen in such a way as to
strike in the -crotch of the tree, from
which position he was unable to extricate
himself, even if he had the strength after
falling. In this position he must have
died from hunger or thirst or possibly
from his injuries. . Both charges had been
fired from his gun.

executive commission of eighty, divided

from the western and thirty from the

J . Objectiocs to the Scheme.
The report met with wmt. opposition.
Rev. Dr. Emory, of the Methodist Episco
pal church, objecting to the small number
of members allowed for his church. Mr.
Atkinson, of England, did not relish the
minority representation accorded to the
eastern section, but thought after all
that Englishmen would be able to hold the
balance of power. He hoped and expect
ed that the next ecumenical conference
would be held in Australia. After some
discussion the further consideration of
the report went over.
"CHURCH AND PUBLIC MORALS."
Opinions Exprewted on Sunday Papers and
The topic for discussiou was "The
Church and Public Morals." The general
trend of the argument as to Sunday ob
servance was that the church should lend
its power to rescue Sunday from the evils
that people now commit on that day.
Rev. Rnddle, of England, said there was
nothing in the New Testament against
the enjoyment of radical amusement.
Amusements have their riirht in this
world in their proper placa BUhop D. C.
Foss, of Philadelphia, said that the chnrch
must consider the candid need of amuse
ments that are harmless and not attended
with evil associations; the Christian
standard was based on New Testament
ethics and lofty notions, and such amuse
ments as could only be used in the name
of the Lord Jesus.
Jnmped on the Sunday Papers.
Rev. E. M. Messick, of St. Louis, Metho
dist church south, spoke on the Sunday
question, and characterized the Sunday
newspaper as Deiug tne greatest enemy to
its proper observative. The church, he
skid, was responsible for its success as its
members encouraged it by advertising in
it, subscribing for it and reading it, to
the sacrifice of the Bible. Tbe Sunday and
paper, he added, was a factor of Sundav
tbe church of God was its ally. It should
not be recognized. Tbe church should
cry against it and declare war on it to the
Spoke for the Theatre.
J. E. Balmer, of Manchester, England,
the yonngest delegate to the conference,
startled the delegates from their quiet re
pose and brought forth cries of "No, nor
from them, by saying that the church
should sot estrange itself from amuse
ments, and that they should attempt to
purify the theatres. He said that be had
attended the Lyceum theater in London,
and had greatly enjoyed what he had seen
there. Upon entering that theatre he bad
seen so many preachers in the audience
that he thonght he was in an ecumenical
conference. The theatre, he said, was be
coming purified because so many Chris
tians attended it.
- ' Methodists the Only Exemplars.
'Rev. Mr. Waller, of England, thought
it was not in the province of tbe church
to provide amusements. Rev. J. M.
Buckley, of New York, said that t.ie
preachers whom Mr. Balmer saw in the
London theatre were probably not Meth
odists, and therefore were not an example
to copy. If they were Methodists their
presence there boded no good. At the
evening session the subject of missions
was discussed. The programme con
slsted of several addresses upon miss in
ary work and five minute discussions of
the topic under consideration

The Lynching of Three Negroes Nearly
Charlotteville. W. Va., Oct. 20. Half
a dozen negroes went into the little town
of Clifton Forge, Va., and tried to run It,
cowboy style. The citizens objected, and
when they chased the negroes out of town
the latter fired upon them, killing one
man and wcunding another. Later four
of the negroes were captured and jailed.
The same night a mob took three of the
negroes from the jail and lynched them.
This roused the anger of the negro resi
dents of the vicinity, aud they armed
themselves and made threats of retalia
tion. The whites then armed and pre
pared for trouble, but the governor was
appealed to and sent a company of militia
to the scene of disturbance and all is
