Dr. Bulloch, last ,Wednesday, Dec.
27. The body had lain out perhaps
a .week or two and was in a state of
decay. Thirty dollars in bills and
sfxtyi.ents in silver was found on the.
lhody. This money was used to de
,fray funeral e penses, the 'body be
ing truned over to the Stanga under
taking' company.
It rill be remembered by some
that iLair wasp without support and
an .P9$eal wa# made Ito the Polloe
Jury to help him. He has also been
assisted by others, and had eked out
a precarious living. He had been
able to do littl1 to help himself.
