YOSEMITE, August 14. 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
The quintet that took the extreme
hazard to .solve the mystery of the dis
appearance of young Logan were

Uyne, Carl Burke, Alvery Littel and
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.

from Samoa, is well remembered by

the embarrassment his wholesale hos

Stackable was a passenger from Ho

board ship to making friends, and to

ashore on the revenue cutter Golden

usual delay caused by the examination
of baggage on the wharf the invita

Stephens climbed over the Korea's side
Stackable was there to introduce him

Staekable, "to go ashore in the cutter.
Could you arrange it for me?"
Stephens surely could.
"And may I take a few friends with
"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,

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:

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

Scots which , used to go to halter
lengths. A Scottish drover was re

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

doing for money what no Englishman
would. But he answered with a cheer
