DIVER GIB UP DEAD
Body ot Miss Pendleton Found 16
Below Clifton Forge Bridge
SEARCH FOR GAY'S BODY CONTINUES
Father of the Dead Boy Expresses
j Regret That the Couple Were In?
tercepted at Staunton?Police of
Latter Place' Subject of Criticism.
CLIFTON FORCE, VA.. April 20.?
The body of Miss Mabel Pendleton;
ilte pretty soventpen-yonr'oid girl who
looped from a suspension bridge con?
necting this city with South Clifton
on Thursday morning at an early
hour, was found ahout a mile down
the JnoKson River at 8:30 this morn?
ing by, R. L. Watts and Oeorge
Droughman. members of the search?
ing party, which has heen relentless
for the past two days In their efforts
to locate the bodies of both Miss Pen?
dleton find her lover. Mr. Stuart Gay.
The discovery of Miss Pentlleton's
body was made before the regular
nenrchlng parly had begun their work
for the day. The swift current had
washed the body into nn eddy In the
river, where It has remained possibly
Hlnce the time of her leap to death.
The water Is very (dear und not over
Utree feet deep where the body hnd
lodged, so it was an easy mutter to
make the discovery from a hont In
Which the men were rowing.
With the exception of the exposed
parts being discolored by the settling
tif mild the remains of Miss Pendle?
ton were ns natural looking as In life.
The body was taken to the home of
Mr. C. A. Shomo, whose wife was a
?dose friend of the dead girl.
Father of tho Boy Expresses Regret.
Captain O. S. Cay, father of the
young man drowned, expresses regret
over tho Interception of the couple at
Staunlon. He recognized the nseless
nnss of trying to stop the mnrrlnge
and would not take any part In it,
for he felt satisfied that the couple
would eventually marry, and there
(Wits nothing to gain by throwing ob?
stacles in their way. The most sur?
prising thing connected with the
elopement Is that the couple returned
to Clifton Forge without an officer.
They could have left the train at
GoHhen and boarded No. 1 and In this
way passed Staunton without fear of
molestation, but young and timid they
possibly did not think of this.
There has been some criticism of
the Staunton officer stopnlng Mr
(lay and Miss Pendleton. They bad
been guilty of no crime, hnd a legal
pass to Washington nnd tin* Rlnnnton
officer, without a warrant or rennest
from an officer in this city, held these
onforlnnnto persons until the arrival
of No. 2 and sent them hack hero.
f They're Going to Smithfield.
A party of well known Hampton*
iftUB w"l leave early this morning for
nn outing that has every prospect of
proving to be a most onjoynhlo. one.
Smltlt?eld will be the objective point
nnd tho medium of getting there will
be tho yacht Waneta. The party,
which will be composed of the follow?
ing gentlemen, will return home on

MOONSHININQ.
Mora Illicit Still* In New York City
Than In Kentucky.
"Dou't talk to me about tuoonshlnlny
In Kentucky," said the Internal reve?
nue agent. "There's more moonshln
lug going on all the time in little obi
New York than could be done In ten
Kentuckys. In the crowded sections of
the CHBt and west sides stills spring up
right along and for awhile conduct a
nourishing business lu the low grade
whisky they manufacture. You see, It
doesn't tuke much trouble to equip a
still with corn ami yeast and start in
to make the mash, which Is finally
turned out ns a pretty poor sort of
whisky. The great difficulty Is lit get?
ting rid of tbe peculiar smoke and
odor from the stills without exciting j
suspicion. This Is usually attempted I
by running the still lu connection with
a dye shop or some other chemical en- [
tcrprlBo as a blind. We keep watch on ?
all such establishments and have the '
town well covered by sharp eyed and
sharp dosed agents besides. We tiro '
constantly arresting these small moon?
shiners and sending them to Jail. But
euuiigh spring up In their places for
you to say with safety that, as I say.
there's more mooushlning going on in
New York city right along than there I
could be In ten Kentuckys."?New York
