The body of A. D. Clinard, was found Saturday at Foster’s landing, about thirty-five miles from Rome. The body was found at 2 o’clock in the afternoon by Eddie Giles, a small boy. It had been floating and had lodged under some willow bushes. There was found in his pocket a check on Printup Bro.’s bank for $3, and a letter of a recent date from some friend in Cave Springs signing himself Robert. Decomposition had set in but little. The deceased will be remembered as the hotel Proprietor, of Rome, who so mysteriously disappeared but the finding of whose hat on the river bank left little doubt that he had committed suicide on account of financial troubles.
