FOREST GUARD FOUND
BY ED. MAHN.
DATE OF DEATH SET
, Russell ClirlhtciiNon Benched End
of Endurnnco on December 37,
Decides Coroner'N Jury Tho
Funeral to He Tomorrow.
(From Monday's Dally.)
Within six miles of his own cabin,
In tli a Crcacent vicinity, which ho left
on Christmas morning, J. Russoll
-Chrlatonson, forest guard In the Doa
chntea national forest service, was
-found Saturday nftcrnoon by Hang
ar Hd. Mann. Chrlstcnson had been
-dead for at least two weeks, tho
verdict of tho coronor's Jury, which
-at on tho caso last night In Ores--cout
being that tho end had como
on or about Decombor 27, as tho rc--sult
of cold and hunger. Tho first
word rocolvod hero nfter tho body
-was found carao In tho form of a
telephone iqcssngo to Supervisor
Hastings, yesterday afternoon, and
anothor call camn In this afternoon.
According to Htatoments mada In
3.a Pino this afternoon by V. V. Har-
jiliam and Ed. Mann, luports have
boon rlfo In tho Crescont territory
ithat ''Chrlstonson had met with foul
jilny. th V'(oiv 'mvlntr brcii prompt
od- by the. Taut that pulls of constd
or.iblo vEluo had accumulated nt his
cabin. Tho rumor was effectually
disproved, howovor, nt tho Inquest.
Dentil Cninn Quietly.
Woodsmen In tho Crescent coun
try say that It- would have been Im
possible for ChrlsteiiHon to liavo
-covered tho dlstanco which his tracks
.showed, In less than a week's time.
Although ho had evidently boon lost
lor tho first fow days ot his absence
from homo, tho last two days ho had
been traveling by compass, almost
In a direct linn for his cabin, and
would have reached thorn had he
"been nblo to live through another
-day. Tho end came peacefully, there
being no evidence ot a struggle
That ho had undergone great hard
ships was shown by tho condition ot
lils hands, which had been badly
froion. It Is thought that they had
been frostbitten several times, and
thawed out before they becamo use
less. Dnrtly Missed Station.
Whllo for a time It had been be
lieved that tho forcBt guard must
have lost his mind, this theory has
been abandoned on a final report of
the rcscuo party. Tho fact that he
liad finally struck on tho right trail
homo, Is adduced as proof of this,
He showed no sign ot having suf
fered from snow blindness.
The am bo ot tho tragedy Is ex.
plained by the tact that Chrlstcn
son crossed a dlvldo In Booking his
way homo, which was In reality one
which leads to tho headwaters ot the
Umpqua river. When 35 miles from
lils cabin, he apparently realized his
orror, and set out for homo, taking
tho ranger trail on his return.. By
a bare 200 yards, ho mlsBed the
Marsh ranger btatton.
Work was especially difficult for
the members of the rescue party, ow.
lug to tho tact that much of Christen
son's way lod over heavily crusted
now, making tracking almost Im
possible Ilia approximate location
-was fixed Friday night, and Ranger
Mann, who with Assistant Supervls
or V. V. Harpham, was sent out from
Rend to relieve the rescuers who
liad worked steadily for nearly a
week, was tho first to see tho body.
Rescue Party PrnlMMl.
According to all estimates which
can be made, the forest guard passed
away at least a week before the ser
vice was notified, his trapping part
ner having sought alone for several
days before sending In word to Cri.
Forest Supervisor Hastings spoke
highly today ot the work done by his
inen. and stated that he felt satisfied
that everything possible had been
dome under the circumstances.
Funeral services are to be b.eld w
