morning floating in the river below St.
John. Two boys returning from a hunt

the matter to the Chief of Police at St.
John. In the man's clothes, which were
lying on the river bank, near where the
body was first seen, were found several
letters addressed to Abraham- Gutfreund.
The dead man was about 30 years of age.
He had evidently been in the water only
a short time, as one of the employes of
the St. John lumber mill said he had
seen the man the day before walking on
the railroad tracks. Coroner Finley went
to St. John yesterday and brought the
body to Portland. An effort will be made
to get some trace of- the man's people
through letters found in his clothes.

HAS HUSBAND ARRESTED
Mrs. Woodward Says Spouse Struck
Her AVith an Umbrella.
Mrs. Grace V. Woodward, whose hus
band, William H. Woodward, is a danc
ing teacher, room 418 Fliedner building,
and gives lessons at the Arlon Hall,
was a complainant . last night at po
lice headquarters against her husband,
charging him with abuse and striking her
with an umbrella. She desired his ar
rest, saying that she thought it would do
him good, as he had neglected her, prob
ably on account of some other woman.
According to Mrs. Woodward, the
trouble arose because she asked her hus
band for money tor the necessary house
hold expenses. This angered him and
he assaulted her with his umbrella, she
says. While striking her. the iron ferrule
of the umbrella penetrated her arm Just
above the elbow, making a nasty wound
about an inch deep. ' She had to go to
a doctor to have it dressed. Detective
Price went to the hall where Woodward
was giving his dancing lessons and took
him to the police station, where he gave
$100 bail to appear before Judge Cameron
this morning to answer to the charge of
assaulting his wife.
BEST PEOPLE BUYING.
Jabour's Famous Rug Store Crowd
' ed at Last Night's Auction. "
No better evidence could be asked that
Portland people appreciate Jabour's rare
Oriental rugs than the fact that his big
store. Seventh and Washington streets,
was crowded by our best people last
night and the sales were large. Mr.' Ja
bour's entire stock of matchless beauties
are being knocked off to the highest
bidder, and the opportunity to buy such
elegant rugs at such remarkably low
prices will never be given again after the
auction sale closes, which certainly will
not last many days as Mr. Jabour can
not afford to let his costly selections go
at the price they are bringing.
Christmas buyers cannot afford to over
look this opportunity to buy presents,
r however, and until the auction closes no
reserve will be made and buyers can
have any rug they desire put up for
sale at the auctions every forenoon at
11 A. M. and at 2 and 7 P. M.
