DEATH OF F.J. HAUBER

Frank Hauber, an old-time resident of Warrens and Miller'sw camp, arrived at Lewiston from the lower country Saturday night and retired to bed at an early hour on the second floor of the Raymond House.  At about 10:30 p.m. he was found lying on the sidewalk at the flagstaff corner.  His skull was badly fractured and there were other injuries.  He had on his night clothes and a candle stick in his hand.  It is supposed that he was obeying a call of nature and mistook the porch for the ground floor.  He was on his return to Warrens where he was one of the original discoverers of Miller's camp in 1863.  He had made considerable money and was a resident of Warrens.

He was buried Sunday afternoon and all the old-timers turned out to do the last honors to this good-hearted old pioneer of the mountains.  He was a native of Bavaria and was 66 years of age last January.  Peace to his ashes.
