face upward, down the muddy Mis

enough to go down to the old saw-mill

dead man was placed .and brought up
town. The Coroner's jury found that
the man came to his death1 by drown
ing; name unknown acd: cause of
drowning unknown, whether acci
dent or suicide. No marks of violence
were discernible and - the supposition
is, as he does not seem to have been
missed by any of the up river towns,
that he cither fell or jumped off some
boat going up and had been in the wa

years old ; 'dark complexion, little or
