BODY FOUND IN WOODS.
Nothing in the Clothing That Would

ner of Death Unknown.
The decomposed body of a nun ap
paicntly 45 yeais ot age, was found
jesterday morning on tho MooMe
mountain, ntmut two and one-half
miles fiom Moosic in what is known
aa Covey's Swamp. The discoxery was
made by a man named Lubendei, who
was taking a walk in that vicinity.
The find was icported to Coroner
Booeits, wno directed XJiulei taker
James Walsh to lemove tho body to
hU plnci of busine-s, wheie tho cor
oner will hold an autopsy today, and
if possible 11111 a vol the mysteiy. Tho
identity of the man Is almost Impossi

These consist 01 11 watch, pipe and
snutf bov, the latter being formed fiom
a dried lemon. The clothing and shoos

as could bo learned yesteiday no 0110
Is missing from Moosic. Tho llesh on
tho head and face has been eaten
away, but a heavy black beaid is ills
cernable through the remaining fea
tuies. The body had evidently been at the
place wheie It was found lor some
time, as a young son of .Mr. Lubowlei'
noticed a man sitting at the same
placo a week ago Inst Satuiday, and
thought the fellow was sleeping und
wan afiaid to disturb him.
The remains weio viewed by many
people yesterday, but up to a late hour
last' night no one had been able to
Identify them. Tlteio i.s no evidence of
foul play, and the supposition is that
the man died fiom oposuie.

Glass carried not n cent of Insuinnee
on either building or stock, nor did
Smith. Btennmnn's loss was entlie,
but the Joidan building can led $1,800
hisuiance. The blaze oiiglnated In a
heap of lubblsh neai Smith's place and
this was the fiist to catch the flic.
Owing to the Inflammable natuip of
tlie contents of any junk shop, most
Insuianco companies lefiise to take
them n ilsks, and this at counts for
the fact that neither Glass nor Smith
had tlioli leases at nil covcrpd.
SAVS A FIBF.BUG DID IT.
Gmss lift night positively stated his
belief that an Ineendiaiy had kindled
the blaze, and numeious of the lit emeu
who w 01 Iced ftom 2 o'clock until S on
the llto entertain the same opinion, al-x
though the o'llnlon is also ventured
that a dgaiette butt caielessly tin own
into the yaid might hae ignited some
The Municipal 1 'onti.it ting and litt
pnneinent companv's ltoises and
wagons weic lodged in the .Ionian
building, but weie all .saved fiom the
Hume- A watchman for Hip Dickson
Manulactiiiing company dlscoveied the
blnzo shortly befoie 2 o'clock. A pile
of nibblsh was then binning fleicelv
and just as he dlseoPied it. a hungiy
tongue of flame shot out and In an In
stant the coiner ot Smith's shop was
w lapped In a blaze.
The watchman sounded .111 .'il.iiin
ftom Bok 16. at Pcnn avenue and Vine
-licet, and tills alaim was answeted
by the CtystaK Nnv Augs, Phoenix

building. 23xri0 feet, mid Smith'-, place
one-stoiy high and 2".x2"i. Jot dan's
building was also aflame. The two
junk bliopt weic doomed fiom the (lif.t,
the mases of rags, bones and lubblsh
binning like the pioxeibial tinder. The
fliemen bent theit effoits on conti oiling
the (lie al the Joidan building, a laigp
tlnee-stoiy frame strucluip. Had the
blaze spiead fiom theie, a iov of
wooden buildings in the neatbv com I

Tt was found uecessaiy to send In a
second alarm, and this was answered
by the Genei.il Phihnoy Engine com
pany, of Green Ittdge, and the C'eti
tuivs, of South Sci anion.
THE DAMAGE DONE
It was S o'clock befoie l he (lames
smouldered down and by this time the
