Roy Barney Solves Mountain Mystery

C. Roy Barney, who has been spending time with other members of the Sierra Club in mountain climbing, has reported the finding portions of the effects and the body of J. D. Archibald, who was lost in the mountains at the head of the Kings River two years ago while attempting to climb Mount Rixford.

Barney was the first of the group to find pieces of clothing. A watch, $19, and other articles, and some bones of the body were found, and sufficient evidence to convince them that they were relics of the lost man.
