Alfred Osier is Found. Dead Accidently ' ' Shot by his ova Hand. ' - 3Lilaa.g-erln.gr ZDeatlx. Alfred Osier, Louis Lyons, Rudolph Lewis, William Kalambaeh and Duncan Currie left Cheboygan on last Saturday for a still hunt next day. Their stopping place wa9 Elliott's old camp, five miles from town. After nn early breakfast they separated, agreeing to return for dinner, and did so. About haJf-past three they sauntered ou another drive, with the understanding that they were to start from the camps for town before dark. Lyons,Kalambach and Currie were tirst to face homeward, thinking that the others would naturally follow. All got back but Alfred Osier. Ou Monday morning Frank Osier took alarm at the absence of his brother, and with several friends went in his wagon to Bearch, supposing an accident caused his dis appearance. 4Ie was unsuccessful. Tuesday he repeated the search. Wednes day the alarm 9pread, and parties speed ily organized, It beiug generally be lieved Uiat the missing man had met with a sad fate. Thursday the parties increased, it being a settled conviction that he was dead, and returned in the cveuinsr, but with no better success. Ou Friday the interest grew to discover tho m-isaing man's fute. The surmises vere uuuiy. Swum, imagining U..'U hijyight have been shot through a mistake in the dusk. Iu the afternoon of Friday Char les Leclerc'saw his gun lying in an old road, about two miles east from the El liott camp, and near by, between several stumps and a log, Alfred Osier was found dead, at half-past four o'clock. THE MYSTERY SOLVED THE rLEASCUH . HUNT ENDING IN A TRAUEDY. The right hand was shot ., through the palm, the end of the left thumb carried away. Irspection showed that east of tho road ho was restiug his chin on his hands which covered the muzzle of the riile, the stock making a dent on the beech log. Taking alarm its seems at some object, the stock slid down the side of the log; the trigger was forced, discharg ing the rifle, the bullet passing through the palm of the right and taking the tip of the thumb of the left hand, rang ing up under the chin, escaping above the ear in its fatal errand. . , ,.. T1IE GROUND showed the hardest struggle to signal his misfortunes nod make known his helpless misery. Near by was an old pine stump; it was polished by his fingernails endeavoring; to ascend it that he might bo seen. Refore ho be came conscious for this effort he must have lain all night or nearly so, motion less, senseless. This presumption is probable from the large blood pool stains iu the sand. UNA1JLE TO CLIMB THE STUMP he seems to have calmly surveyed his fate. To afford a clue to his discovery now worked a super human energy. 'lie therefore moved acoss the Jnear by road, the prints of his left hand, his knee and feet being marked la the dust, the trail of the gun, which he still clung to, tes tifying the heroic pluck and calmness of despair of the man to ultimate in his discovery, for crossing the road he placed his gun, a mute but eloquent witness that his body was not far dis tant. He must have realized the anxie ty of his wife and brothers, and how anxious they should be to explore the woods to ascertain the history of his dis appearance. HIS DEATH BED. was a little beyond the road. Several stumps, standing on an angle with a log invited him to shelter from the cold and the frost of the night, for he must have lived 40 or 50 hours. Here he rested. Here he breathed his last, at what hour the angels only know. Here he was found lying a little sideways, the left foot arched a little on the right leg above the ankle, the body otherwise in full length, and wounded hand across his breast, the head thrown back in repose,the hat closely drawn over the eyes. . . j - SUCH A TRAGEDY and the instances of struggle all around betokeae a presence of mind. His own fate, the alarm of friends, and, above all, his wife and children, most have, in rapid saccessIon,pas'sed in review,bnt,in- 6tead of paralizing the mind, it only emboldened the soul of the sturdy man, that if dead, and perhaps eaten by the wolves, traces were left behind to prove that death and he grappled, but that death, as it always does, triumphed.' : ALFRED OSIER; .' i , is one of five brothers, four of whom have resided in Cheboygan. The deceas ed with Chris, came here five years since from Pottsdani, N. Y., where they were born. Frank came here about fifteen years and is very popular. Will came here last year and returned to his father a few weeks since.' They are re spectable with several prominent con nections by marriage. Alfred was 32 years old, a carpenter by trade. He leaves a wife and three children, the old est being seven and the yonugest child two years of age.Q Cheerful, of good humor, polite, honest, he leaves many friends to regret his being cut down so suddenly. The community is la deep sympathy with the bereaved. AN INCIDENT. One of n party of Ohio gentlemen who were deer hunting was up a tree watch, lug for game, near the dead. He could have,see it at a glance. Ouly when found dhl he realize the whtrt tragedy . He and his companions- werv startled, and abandoned the exciteiuat uS th Michigan woods. They are nww on their way home, having expressed themselves of their danger incident to xucli jsle.s- ure. THE CORPSE. was brought to town after dark tborunvs preceding it.

As he was leaving he kis.ied his wife and 'Children. Mrs. Osier was p&tyful and remarked, "why, what! the matter, vou'll be back to-merrovv?" Ho replied " that it might be a long time before they'd se-e him again." The wends in j view of what followed sunk deep in her , heart. . From the first alairu she- believ-; ed him d tad. Her - agony that ha might not be found wore deeper and deeper in to her heart as the several efforts failed to solve his absence. Overwhelmed her perplexed feelings assumed a resigned calm when the worst was- known. Sym pathy for her is generous The- Interest felt has taken the barb from the arrow. Her future now Is without his help. But life has its ainw if it baa its sorrows. To the inevitable she has to bow;; to live she has to struggle. Many aie movin-g to raiae a fund to somewhat lessen the calamity. The Tribute heartily ron curs iu such efforts as the widow and children, wore1 mainly supported by, bis wages. the inquest " - . was iu accordance witlt the facts stated. THE FUNERAL SERVICES were held at the town hair, the Hey. H. M. Thompson, officiating. Tearful sympathy traced itself legibly on every face present. the remains were hearsed to the grave, crowds fol lowing, and soon Alfred Osier in Ms last restine place disappeared forever under the sod. THINKS. Frank Osier aud Chris Osier tender through the Tribune their deep thanks to the community. Men left their busi ness and work day after day in the pain ful search for their missing brother and continued it until found.
