The dead body of a negro child, perhaps four months old, was found in the Cottonwood river at 7 o'clock last evening by a rowing party. The head of the infant had been crushed in by a blunt instrument and indications point to infanticide. The body had been in the water several days and there is not the slightest clue to its parentage. Coroner Barker will hold an inquest this morning.
