III THE SEWER
A case of probable Infanticide was
revealed In Roseburg last Friday, says
the.Roseburg Review, when the badly
decomposed remains of a newly born
babe was found In the sewer main In
the alley between Jackson and, Rose
streets. The discovery was made by
City Marshal I. J. Norman and two
street laborers, while seeking the
cause of stoppage In the sewer. The
case will probably always remain a
mystery, as there is not the allghtesjt
semblance of a clew by which the par
entage of the child can be traced.
Wrapped In a cloth, the child had
doubtlessly been deposited In the
sewer through the manhole on Oa!:
street, the only known place large
enough to admit It Into the main,
where It was found. The bundle ul
timately stopped up the main, which
is' only 10 Inches In diameter, and
sewage gradually backed up until It
was noticed last Friday. Assisted by
two laborers, Marshal Norman made
an Investigation, using a long hook In
his operations. Just at dark particles
of human flesh were brought forth.
The marshal Instantly ceased work
until daylight on Saturday when he re
covered more flesh, entrails and a
cloth, all showing him beyond ques
tion the exact nature of the discovery.
The authorities are completely mys
tified as to the Identity of the child,
and the case has likely ended with Its
Lost to World for 1300 Tear.
Chicago, Dec. It. The. Dally New
says: "A new saying of Christ, lost to
the world for 1100 years and found In
Egypt, was given to the world for
the first time yesterday by Professor
Henry A. Saunders, of the University
of Michigan, addressing the members
of the archaeological Institute now In
session 'at the University of Chicago.
The fragment Is a part of an old Bible
dating back to the Moslem conquest
of fcgypt nun uu ia U it -Utr.:
tic as to disarm hostile criticism.
"The long lost fragment belongs In
the ltth chapter of the gospel of St.
Mark and follows the 14th verse It
relate to the story of Christ' appear
ance, following his death, to 11 of his
apostle In Jerusalem, With the new
verse the Bible reads thus: '
. Mark 11-14: "And they answered,
saying that this age of unrighteous
ness and unbelief I under the power
of Satan, who does not permit the
things which are made Impure by the
(evil) spirits to comprehend the truth
of Ood and His power. For this rea
son 'Reveal thy righteousness now
they said to Christ and Christ said to
: " The limit of the years of the pow
er of Satan has been fulfilled, but
other terrible things are at hand, and
I was delivered unto death on behalf
of those who sinned In order that they
may return to truth and sin no more,
to the end that they may Inherit the
spiritual, Indestructible - glory of
righteousness which is heaven.' "
Professor Sanders declares that the
new found manuscript also , contains
what Is known as the ltturical end
ing of the Lord's prayer. ' '
The. text wa .found, he aald, by
Charles L. Freer of Detroit,' who was
