The Body of an Unknown Man Discovered
Special to the Globe.
BRAINERD, Minn., Sept. 6. —John Vorge discovered the remains of an unknown roan near Jonesville, late yesterday afternoon, while picking cranberries in a marsh. The man was well dressed and the remains showed signs of having laid in the present place some time, as the flesh was entirely gone from the skull and hands. Coroner Dean will go out tomorrow with a party to bring the remains to this city, and ascertain, if possible, who he was and the cause of death.
