Nothing in the Clothing That Would Indicnte Who the Man Is Man ner of Death Unknown. The decomposed body of a nun ap paicntly 45 yeais ot age, was found jesterday morning on tho MooMe mountain, ntmut two and one-half miles fiom Moosic in what is known aa Covey's Swamp. The discoxery was made by a man named Lubendei, who was taking a walk in that vicinity. The find was icported to Coroner Booeits, wno directed XJiulei taker James Walsh to lemove tho body to hU plnci of busine-s, wheie tho cor oner will hold an autopsy today, and if possible 11111 a vol the mysteiy. Tho identity of the man Is almost Impossi ble, although It mny bo tlctei mined who he Is by the .11 tides found on tin- body. These consist 01 11 watch, pipe and snutf bov, the latter being formed fiom a dried lemon. The clothing and shoos icsemblo those of a miner, but as far as could bo learned yesteiday no 0110 Is missing from Moosic. Tho llesh on tho head and face has been eaten away, but a heavy black beaid is ills cernable through the remaining fea tuies. The body had evidently been at the place wheie It was found lor some time, as a young son of .Mr. Lubowlei' noticed a man sitting at the same placo a week ago Inst Satuiday, and thought the fellow was sleeping und wan afiaid to disturb him. The remains weio viewed by many people yesterday, but up to a late hour last' night no one had been able to Identify them. Tlteio i.s no evidence of foul play, and the supposition is that the man died fiom oposuie.
