Found Dead in Woods!

Dead Body of Well Known Young Man who Disappeared Short Time Ago is Discovered in West Virginia

A telegram from Brooks, W. Va., received by relatives of the deceased at Conemaugh Tuesday evening announced that the dead body of Daniel Webster Davis, the well known Conemaugh druggist, had been found in the deep forests of West Virginia late that afternoon. Mr. Davis had gone to West Virginia only a little over a week ago in the hope of benefiting his health which had been on the decline for some time. Shortly after arriving there he disappeared. It is supposed that during one of the nervous attacks to which he was subject, he wandered into the woods, became lost and died from exposure. He was a relative to Capt. Thomas Davis of this place and is survived by a wife and one son, daughter, besides several brothers and sisters.
