Holland, while driving cattle along Snake River last week on what is
known as the “Half-moon Trail,” discovered the dead body of a man on
the bluffs below. Examination
disclosed that man and horse had evidently rolled off the trail.
The remains of a pack saddle, a sawed-off shot gun and a silver
dollar, minted in 1866, were also found.
The man had evidently been dead about 20 years.
The remains were given decent burial.
