NotDiaoeverd Till Fssr Daya
The remains of Henry Metz ar-
rived here from the Banger on the
3 o'clock train yesterday afternoon
in a metallic case and were taken
immediately to the city cemetery
and interred. The corpse was ac-
companied by a number of friends
of the family to the grove, where
religious services were held by
Rev. Johnson of the Cumberland
The deceased is supposed to
have died last Friday of % conges-
tive chill, but the fact of his death
was not known till the following
Monday. Last Monday some men
went to the house on the ranch to
see Mr. Metz in regard to putting
up some hay for him. They dis.
covered that the doors of ihe house
were open, and upon going into
the building they were almost
0f j sickened by the stench that emi-
into which phe had been

to the time that the dead body
was discovered in the house. The
deceased had been staying at the
house alone during the absence of
the parties who were keeping
house for him.
The body was in such an ad-
vanced state of putrefaction and
the stench was so great that it was
impossible to examine it, and the
inquest developed no definite facte
concerning the death as no exami-
nation could be made of the body,
which had to be placed in the
metallic case just as it was found,
without any of the clothing being
removed. Those who helped to
place the body in the case say it
was the most sickening undertak-
ing they ever experienced, and
the body presented a ghastly ap.
pearance that was shockingly hor-
rible. The deceased was un-
married, and about 28 years of
age, and principally resided in
Sherman, when not on the rancb.
