Body Of Infant Found In River

Fargo, March 16. Yesterday afternoon some boys who were walking along the river near Oak Grove park discovered the body of an infant floating down the river, and after hard work succeeded in getting it to shore. The remains were partly incased in ice.

A student of the Agricultural college who happened near at the time took charge of the body, placed it in a box and took it to his lodging house on Seventh avenue north, and called at police headquarters where he notified Chief Towney.

The body was that of a very young child and was frozen stiff. It had evidently not been in the water any great length of time and was probably either placed in the river from the of the bridges, or as the police think, may have been thrown into a sewer and during the last thaw had reached the river.
