Obituary

The body of an unknown man was discovered Thursday afternoon floating in Lake Memphremagog, under the West Derby bridge, by some boys while fishing. It had evidently been in the water for several days, and was so badly swollen that it can be scarcely identified, but is supposed to be that of Mr. Frederick Field of Irasburg, who has been missing since Saturday before last. Marks about the face seems to indicate that he came to his death through violence. This matter is being investigated.
