In John G. Hoffman's woods, Lake co., Saturday before last, the dead body of a German was discovered who mysteriously disappeared from his team and work in that same neighborhood last May. He had been hung there by the neck, the Lowell News reports, but finally had fallen, with his head and body severed. On his person were a gold watch and a gold ring. He had hung himself from disappointment in a love affair in Germany.
