CHARLES STERLING HAS
Left His Home on Acount of Domestic
Troubles An Old, Old Story.
Light is being thrown on the mys
terious disappearance of Charles
Sterling, of Milton, whoso friends ox
pressed tho belief that ho had be
come lost in tho mountains or had
been foully dealt with by robbors,
somo two weeks ngo. Searching par
tics have- scoured tho mountains
around Weston In quest of his dead
body. Pitiful tnles, told of the wife
nnd young babe left alone by tho
grim hand of death, havo been circu
lated and believed. Now comes tho
sequel, and death hns nothing to do
The young man hns been traced to
Baker City, -whore ho stabled his
horse, upon which ho had left Milton
on a pretended search for a lost cow,
and registered at a hotel as Georgo
Sterling. His movements slnco his
arrival in Baker City aro not known
nor are thoy of particular interest
now thnt it has been lenmed thnt his
dead body does not Ho exposed to
tho storms of tho mountains.
Tho motive of his abrupt and mys
terious disappearance from Milton,
however, is of Interest, for it fur
nishes the key to the whole situation.
Early Information regarding his dis
appearance tended to show that there
was no reason for tho voluntary de
sertion of his wlfo and child, but In
vestigation of tho facts proves dif
ferently. It is now apparent to those
in a position to know that young Ster
ling had domestic troubles of a doll
cate nature, which drove him to leave
home and seek now scenes. Instead
of searching for a lost cow, the now
version of the story says he has gone
in search of lost peace of mind.
, The searching parties have been
called in nnd sympathy In Milton Is
somewhat divided as to which one of
the principals It should be lavished
