A STARTLING DISCOVERY - Corpse Found By The Road Side Last Evening

Sunday evening the corpse of a woman was found about three quarters of a mile below the Durr bridge, lying
by the roadside ... She was dressed in a red tailor-made suit of good wearing quality and held in her hand a
green valise. Some weeks ago it appears, she was shot and instantly killed, and later was dragged into the
ditch. A representative of humanity pulled the corpse out of the water and it lies at present by the road
side, unburied. The only clue to the identity of the corpse, is five words printed on her valise, viz.:
"Meet me at The Fair".
