The body of an unidentified man
apparently a victim ‘of drowning was
found Saturday afternoon about one
ymile from Hooversville by Herman
Meyers, a farmer. The body was lv-
ing on top of a pile of driftwood on a
small island in the Stonycreek river.
It is thought that the man was Sela

no marks of foul play and it is eh
he met death during the high water
of three weeks ago and only after the
‘water became low was the body ex-
posed to view.
A pay envelope from the Wilbur
mines was found in one of the pockets
and it is thought that through this
‘his identity may be discovered.
The body was identified later as
that of Mike Vasano, 30 years old
and unmarried. He lived at Wilbur.
The identification was established by
Joe Bongush, with whom Vassano
boarded, also by the number on the
pay check found in his pocket. At
the coroner’s inquest the verdict of
the jury was that the man came to
his death from accidental drowning.
Shortly before one o'clock to-day
the stable of J. M. Cook, on the rear
of his premises on Broadway was
destroyed by fire. The fire larm was
sounded and the fire laddies quickly
got on to the job, extinguishing the
flames before the building was an
entire wreck and preventing the
spread of the fire to Mr. Cook’s resi-
dence, perhaps thirty feet distar:.
The loss was about $200. The origin
of the fire is due, it is supposed,
from the spark of an engine.
Sunday concludes a three weeks’
revival service. In the morning the
baptismal service will be held and
members will be received into the
church. Special music under the
direction of Mr. Paul D. Clutton will
be rendered. The pastor, Rev. J.
Clarke Matteson, will deliver sermons
on Easter themes.
