    • John Best, a German, by occupation a glass blower, who lived in Durhamville, was missed by his family on Monday night of last week, and a thorough search was instituted by the friends. When it was found that Best was not at the glass works, the belief prevailed that he had fallen in the canal. The search failed to reveal the missing man, and Mrs. Best consulted a Syracuse forutne-teller, who, it is said, told her that her husband had been drown into the canal by a towline Monday night, and that the body was not far from the nearest bridge to Best's house. While she was absent Wednesday the body was found near the spot described by the fortune teller. [2]
