The most horrible thing in connection with this tragedy yet made known is the action of the light house keeper on Lonely Island, an Indian or half breed. Tis savage and his friends found on the Island the body of Mrs. W. H. Woods, of Cincinnati, in search of which Mr. Bledsoe has twice visited these parts from Cincinnati. The Indian robbed the body, took everything that was valuable off it and only concealed the body by placing a board over it. It is strongly suspected that there are other bodies on the Island from the odour which prevails, and the probability , is that the Indian has first robbed them and then half buried them. A quantity of wreckage and other stolen matter was found in the light keeper's house, and it appears that a whole sale robbery has taken place. And still people prate of the "noble Indian"
