ble again In Dushore on Monday, bringing
tho body home with them. The only evi
dence of consequence obtained at Long
Pond was that Jacob Fox had gone about
two miles from the hotel and then retraced
his steps to the placo where found. This
was proved by tracks in the snow. Sunday
afternoon, Ira Fox another brother, arrived
from Fall Brook, Tioga county. Constable
Frank Maynard was despatched after San
derson Saturday. Monday noon Sander
returned to Duskoro with Thos. Hiddle
and John Bogart, of Fishlngcreck town
ship, Columbia county, brothers-in-laws of
tho deceased. They had learned of his
sad fate and brought with Ihem a coffin in
which to take home the remains. Samuel
Colo and C. T. Lllley wero substituted for
Keif and Streby, who were out of town,
and tho jury reassembled and and took the
evidence of tho two brothers of tho dead
man. Sanderson testified to parting with
his brother at the Long Pond as above
stated. Had not seen him, since. Several
yeurs ago Jaob had been subject to fits.
His father died of heart disease. Ira Fox
corroborated his brothei'3 evidence in re
gard to the last two items. Their testimony
was given In a straightforward manner
without reservation or evasion. The jury
thereupon rendered a vordlct "that the de
ceased came to bis death in a manner and
form to them unknown."
Probably Jacob Fox brought on an at
tack of his old complaint by over exertion
in an endeavor to catch up with his broth
er. Realizing that ho could not catch him
and feeling the approaching sickness he
started to return to Long Pond, but death
overtook blm before ho reached shelter
His body lay In the road that nlgbt and

frozen as bard as iron.
