Lowering themselves by means of ropes over the edge of the cliff until they hung a thousand feet below the ledge trail at Glacier Point, five Berkeley school boys today, at the ri.sk of their lives, discov ered the body of young Horace K. Logan, the St. Matthews' College stu dent, who has been missing for the last week. The quintet that took the extreme hazard to .solve the mystery of the dis appearance of young Logan were Adolph ischnack, Frank Warren, Kay Uyne, Carl Burke, Alvery Littel and Jack Spivey. Logan's body was far below the dan gerous place on the trail to Camp Curry, wucre the rill of water leaves the ledge and slides oat over the slippery granite in a series of "staircase" falls. Keep Doggedly at Hunt. Although Major W. Y. Forsythe, act ing superintendent of Yosemite Na tional i'ark, felt that to hunt for Logan over the sheer granite precipice- beiow Glacier I'oint was an undertaking too perilous for his cavalrymen, even though they volunteered for the task, the five lads entertained no such fears. Ever since the military authorities abandoned the search they have kept doggedly at the hunt. They explored a ledge 400 feet below the point where Logan's hat was dis covered, and later they went still lower, letting themselves down bv long ropes and creeping over the cliff in places where it seemed impossible for a human being to obtain and keep a foothold. Id neither of the two main ledges was any further trace of the lost lad found, and they were beginning to feel discouraged, when they decided to make a final search in the lowest ledge of all. lining their ropes, they let themselves down the wall of cliff fully 1000 feet below the trail, and there, wedged be tween two boulders, they found the mangled body of the young student. Every Bone Broken. Every bone had been broken in the fall over the precipice and the rocks had torn the clothing from the body until it hung in long ribbons from the corpse. Death was evidently instan taneous, and the tumbling, bounding body had been niangled to a pulp. The five boys wrapped the body in a sheet and canvas and hoisted it by slow degrees-to the ledgetrain, taking their lives in their hands every moment of the arduous and dangerous trip. The young men arrived in camp with their burden late in the evening. While the search for. Logan's body was being thus successfully ended, Mil ton Rosekranz, uncle of the lost lad, was speeding toward Wawona, following up a clew which led him to believe that the boy had not lost his life over the cliffs but had gone away with two tramp companions to enjoy a hobo's life for a season, or else to follow un scrupulous captors, who might have learned that he was the possessor of a rich, estate and therefore a good prize to hold for a ransom. The five boys will divide the $1000 reward which was offered for the dis covery of the lost boy by Newton Rose kranz, secretary of Crocker Estate, and uncle of the lad. Hoped Until Last. Miss Idaline Rosekrans, Logan's aunt, with whom he had lived since his mother's death several years ago, was prostrated by the news that the body had been found. She had clung tena cionsly to the hope that her nephew had been kidnaped or that he had gone off on a trip with men in whose com pany he had been seen. On the receipt of "a telegram yesterday from her brother, who is in the Yosemite, say ing that he was going to Wawona on a new clew, Miss Rosekranz was ex tremely hopeful. This was soon follow ed by a telegram from David A. Curry, announcing the finding of the body. Logan's tragic death brings that branch of the family to an end. A few years ago an older brother was acci dentally shot and died soon afterward. Shortly before that the father, Dr. Lo gan, a brilliant physician of this city, died after a short spell of insanity due to overwork. His wife was an invalid several years before her death. HID TOO MANY FRIENDS San Francisco Cull. Collector of the Port Staekable of Honolulu, who has threatened to arrest the entire crew of the protected cruiser St. Louis for the alleged smuggling of tapa cloth from Samoa, is well remembered by the customs officials of thy? port for the embarrassment his wholesale hos pitality once caused them. Stackable was a passenger from Ho nolulu, a year or so ago, on the liner Korea. He devoted his six days on board ship to making friends, and to each new found acquaintance he ex- Kfcfl y School opens September 1 3th. Are you ready for it?

As this meant avoiding the usual delay caused by the examination of baggage on the wharf the invita tions were accepted with alacrity. "I'm collector of the port at Hono lulu, you know," he told his friends, "and the Golden Gate will be placed at my disposal. I can save you a couple of hours' delay. Leave it to me." When Chief Boarding Officer Charles Stephens climbed over the Korea's side Stackable was there to introduce him self. "It is late and I would like," said Staekable, "to go ashore in the cutter. Could you arrange it for me?" Stephens surely could. "And may I take a few friends with me?" "Yes, I' guess we can fix that," re plied Stephens. "I'll let you know when we're ready. Better, have your friends get their baggage together so as to avoid delay and save attracting too much attention." ' Staekable passed the word and ten minutes later the alleyway on the side of the ship to which the Golden Gate was made fast was blocked with bag gage and waiting passengers! On ev ery hand could be heard: "Go and see Mr. Staekable.. He'll fix it for you, too." "Ready now, Mr. Stackable; get your friends together," said Stephens. When Stephens found that Stack able 's "friends constituted about 75 per cent of the liner's passengers he called a halt. Stackable escaped the storm by boarding the Golden Gate, which took him away, and for two hours af ter, until the liner was alongside the wharf, Stephens and his lieutenants were kept busy explaining their in ability to assume responsibility for the Honolulu collector's impulsive hospi tality. "Yes," said Stephens - vesterdav, "we remember Mr. Stackable very well." J FELLOWS SMS ISLANDS CDTJHLL HIS CASH San Francisco Bulletin. Al Fellows, the most ardent seeker after new worlds and nororiety that Fistiana has produced in 'the last decade, blew into town the other day from Honolulu, whither he went a few months ago on a junketing tour in search of adven ture. From all accounts, Al found the adventure, but it was not very lucra tive, and he arrived in town with a smile and two gold teeth as his only assets. Al dropped into a chair at the office this morning, heaved a sigh of relief and then delivered himself of the following epitome: "Well, here I am, back in the good old town. Broke, of course but say, I'd rather be broke in San Francisco than be in New York with twenty dol lars a day. Honolulu? Gee, take It away! Did you ever seen South Bend, Indiana, on Sunday? Well, it's a wild rollicking fandango compared to Hono lulu. Saloons all closed at 11 o'clock, not a soul on the streets but Japs and Kanakas, nothing doing but to sleep and eat. VThe boxing game is fairly good down there now. Jack Cordell and Dick Sullivan, who fought a fifteen round draw white I was there, drew a nice purse. They are going to fight twenty rounds today. They are pretty fair boxers, but would hardly clas with such men as Al Neill, Montana Sullivan, Johnnie O'Keefe or those boys. Maybe it's because they all eat 'poi,''a native concoction that tastes like billboard paste. The more boxers we can get down there the better, though, for the Japs are flooding the country and if war ever does come it will star, right there in Honolulu. At that, I i.ived the islands fine and mav go back there in a few months. It's hard for me to stay still and besides, I want to see Japan."

Once upon a time, some years ago, when Charlie Chillingworth was Deputy High Sheriff and Lorrin Andrews was Attorney-General the . two descended upon Maui, Chillingworth armed wTith a brace of enormous revolvers, each big enough to kill a mastodon, and An drews with an axe and a spade, and while Chillingworth held the fort with his artillery, Andrews proceeded to de molish a dam which the government claimed had been illegally erected to cut off the supply of water from La hainaluna. Possibly the remembrance of that occurrence may make the de fendants in the present suit throw up their hands and quit early in the game. , - Half a dozen steadies were sitting on nail kegs in the store discussing marriage, while Sam, the negro man of all work, was pottering around saw ing wood, so to say. Finally one of them turned to him. ' ' What do you think of marriage; Sam!" he inquired. "I ain' thinkin' erbout hit a tall, suh, but I reckon hit's de only way," Sam replied listlessly. "Are you married!" asked another one. "'Deed I is, suh," Sam responded with quickened inter est, "an' dey aint no potential power on dis yer uth, suh, dat 'ud git me to do hit ag'in. Dey sho' aint, suh." Dean Ramsay has a story of that border hostility between English and Scots which , used to go to halter lengths. A Scottish drover was re turning from the south in particularly bad humor with the English, having done poor business, when he saw in Carlisle a notice offering a reward of 50 to any one who would volunteer for the unpopular task of hanging a condemned criminal. Seeing his chance to make up for his bad market, and comforting himself with the thought that he was unknown there, he did the job and got his fee. As he was leav ing he was taunted as a beggarly Scot, doing for money what no Englishman would. But he answered with a cheer ful grin: "I'll haug ye a' at the price."
