August 4th our cotemporary published
an article headed "A Mystery." The
substance being that the mother of John
Shehan, who was drowned while em
ployed on Laughloy McCnlleeh's drive,
had written to Dr. Beach that her son
had returned home the day before she
received his letter notifying her of h!
death by drowning. We haye seen a
letter written by William Shehan, a
brother of the drowned, at Park Corners,
Canada, in which he states that his
mother nor no one else ever wrote Dr.
Beach any snch letter. William writes:
"I got a letter from the man that George
was working with saying that George
was found and buried. I was very glad
to hear that he was found." So the mys
tery vanlsheth when the truth comes
oat. From the letter It would appear
that the man's name was George instead
of John.
