As stated In yesterday's Tilhunc,

Ho left home e.uly In the morning on

WHRRi: RODY WAS FOl'ND.
The spot where Schoonover's decom
posed body was tound Is about five
hundted feet south of the Lake Lodotn
station, about fifty foot beyond the
railroad -switch that runs past the sta
tion. Jt is a wild spot. In the midst of
a clump of ttees. Where Sehoonover
lay Is not many more than tlftv feet
fiom the lailroad, but the undeibrusli
is so thick that one has to push his
vvny over the small, almost Impeicept
lble path that crosses tho ftpot where
th" dead man lay pi one on his back.
His limbs were sti etched to their full
trt length. One aim Is almost wound
about the small tiees, or hushes, along
the path nnd It Is hard to explain, or
even conceive, how one. If he would
fall limp, could get Into such a posi
tion. The body, as it lay, would IncU
cto that It was diugged theie, rather
than having fallen.
Tho dgl t of tho body was revolting
The ptoce.ises of decomposition caused
It to swell until the clothes weie almost
bursting at the peams. Tho llc.-di had
turned black, and Insects and v. 01 ms
swarmed all over tho remains. The
featuies could not be traced; In fact,
there was no face, the no.-,e, checks and
chin having sloughed away.
The body was found by Oeoige Wal
roth, of Waymatt, and a oung man
named Onrdner, fiom Scianton. For
seveial days there has been an unbear
nble stench in the vicinity of tho body,
nnd this, coupled with the fact that
Schoonovei'.s fi lends came to Wn.vmart
on Monday and lepoited him missing,
led to the se.uch lh.tr nded in locating
rOCKRTS TUitNKD OCT.
Tie pockets of Schmuover's tl onsets
weie turned out, nnd his shoes anil
stockings were missing. A few feet
nway his spectacles weio found. One
frame was twisted, not bent or ctushod
as If It was tiampled on, but tathei as
if It was grasped ns In a struggle. In
the other diiectlon, as if thtowu ovet
Schoonovei's head, weie the cue for
Ills spectacles, an Odd Fellows' lodge
manual, a half-used box of cough
drops, a package of tobacco, and two
empty half-pint whiskey bottles. Those
wete inestimably the c ontents of
Schoonovei's pockets. His giny Fedoi.i
h.tt. with blood stains on the ilm and
band, lay n few feet fiom his head.
The Odd Fellows' manual contained
