WIFE'S TRUE DREAM.
• <» . ■ NIGHT VISION OF DEAD HUSBAND.; A STRANGE story attaches to the recovery of the body of a man from the River Avon, near Evesham. Little doubt is entertained that the body'is that of a Birmingham tradesman named Charles George Haneox, who, has been, missing from his home since February 20. ' ! On that day he went away, but his wife, did not feel alarmed when he did. not r.e-'j. turn, .as he was often away on business. la the middle of the night, however, she had) a premonition that her husband was dead,' and" she immediately aroused her sister, who was sleeping in the same house. She insisted on an" inquiry for her husbarul being made at a hotel where he often; stayed, but nothing had been seen of him; there- Mrs. Haneox was then convinced that her husband was dead, and refused to return to bed. The next morning she received a parcel bearing the Evesham postmark and containing Mr. Hancox's. watch and chain, with the following note in his, handwriting:—"From your dying husband." That same morning several articles of clothing which were subsequently identified as belonging to Mr. Haneox were found on the river bank at Evesham, but the most diligent search failed to elucidate the mystery till more than five weeks later. The spot where the body was found is upwards of a, mile lower down the river than where the clothes were found. Mr. Hancox had an excellent business and lived on affectionate terms with his wife. The evening before his disappearance he was at a whist drive.
