THE SUMPTER MINER. Wednesday, April. 25. 1900. SECRETS OF THE GRAVE Removal of Bodies Reveals Some Interesting Facts. S.im Hastings finished Monday remov ing the bodies from the old to the new cemetery, thirty in number. Two bodies still remain, which will betaken by friends in a few days to other places for reinter ment, one to Baker City and the other to Granite. Mr. Hastings says he has done this worl belore In other places, but no where has he ever seen both Collins and corpses so well preserved. Most of thecotfins are of plain boards, too, which adds to the Interest. According to the decipherable record over the graves, the body of Hryan McCauley iias been burled longest, twelve years. The coffin was as sound and well preserved as if it had been placed under ground only last week. Doubtless some others were buried there at an earlier date, but the inscriptions on the crude boards have been effaced, and their rec ords, so far as this world is concerned, are wiped out.
