Robert "Bob" Powers

Robert Powers' Body Recovered

The body of Mr. Bob Powers, who drwoned himself in the Saline river about 20 days ago, was on last Saturday, recovered.  It was was found floating on the water about two hundred and fifty yards from where his tracks were found on the bank and where it is supposed he jumped into the river.  His mind had been deranged for several years and it was in this state when this unfortunate end came.
