Old Issac B. McDonald, a county pauper who has been missing from the poor farm for two or three weeks past, was found dead in Clear Creek, just above the wagon road crossing last Saturday.  Nothing is known of the cause of death.  He was a native of Nova Scotia and had long resided here.  Some three or four years since he sold out his possessions here and started for Nova Scotia, where he was going to buy a fishing boat and follow his old trade, but on waiting at Spokane to take the train east the old man visited a dive theater, and the "fairies" who work the boxes doped his liquor, buncoed him out of all his money and flung him into the streets.  He returned to Camas Prairie and had been in indigent circumstances ever since.
