The dead body of Mr. Ralph Cuthbert, a cashier to a firm of cloth merchants in Dundas Street, Huddersfield, and a well-known resident of the Paddock district of Huddersfield, was on Monday found, after prolonged dredging in the Holmestyes Reservoir, near Holmfirth. The deceased disappeared on January 17th, presumably as a result of the publicity given to allegations charging him with having sent indecent and insulting letters to a young lady in Huddersfield.
