A few days a;-o a short item ap
peared in this paper in regard to the
sudden and somewhat mysterious tlis
appearance of a Mr. F. M. Davis of
Monmouth, Polk counly. It seems
Mr. Davis came down to rortland
some days since with two horses, which
ho 'offered for sale. Ha soon found
purchasers in the linn of Oodard A
Fraser, receiving for tlm animals the
su a of 1300 cash down. hen lie
came to this city ho registered at the
St. Charles Hotel, but after selling the
horses it appears he did not return to
the hotel. Since then nothing more
has been seen or Imard from the miss
in" man. His friends fear he has been
garroted, or perhaps murdered for his
moiiev. Up to present writing Ins
whereabouts remains a mystery. Davis
has born carrying on a grocery, drug
and cenrral assortment store in Won'
mouth, and one peculiar fenture con
nected with lii disappearance Is the
action of his creditor Yesterday an
attachment for $1200 was issued
aniiiht Davis, and tO'day severs! morf
will be placed on the stock, The total
liabilities are not known, nor the as
sets. No one seems to know whether
Davis has been foully dealt with, or
I 1 ! .-I. a .f
whether li has "gone ny win ng" '

the case are awaited with interest.
