The old man went out into the yard and the dog sprang in front of him, running off a few yards and then coming back and pulling at his clothes. Convinced that something was amiss, he followed th, dog, and was led to a point on the river about five njiles from the house, where he found the lifeless* p bjdy of his boy suspended f,y one le^ tiom an ever- hanging limb oy a laic which ian over the bougii and extended far outii uto thy river.
