SCOTT DUNBAR DIES IN SOUTH
Brief Message Brings News of Death of Former Citizen.
Word reached this city late Tuesday night of the death of Scott Dunbar, which had occurred Tuesday afternoon, either at Earl, Arkansas, or at Memphis, Tennessee. The message announcing his death came to John Bonner, and gave but few particulars, simply stating that he had died that afternoon, and that the body was in charge of a Memphis undertaker. It also asked John to notify the relatives of Mr. Dunbar. Mr. Dunbar has been working for some time as manager of the Earl Cooperage company, at Earl, but it was not known here that he was ailing in any way. Word of his death consequently came as a great surprise.
Mr. Dunbar was about seventy years of age, and has been in the lumbering and saw mill business for many years. He came to North Manchester something like twenty-five years ago, and until about five years ago had charge of the Dunbar Heading factory, making butter tub heads for an Iowa concern. About five years ago he moved the equipment to Arkansas, and since that time has been associated with a number of different enterprises in that state. He had lots of friends in this place who will regret to learn of his death, as he was universally like. His wife had moved from here only a few weeks ago to Richmond, where their daughter lives.

CONGESTIVE CHILL CAUSES DEATH
Scott Dunbar was Buried in Richmond Friday Morning.
Only very meager particulars have been received so far from Memphis concerning the death of Scott Dunbar, mention of which was made last week. The body was brought to Richmond, arriving there Friday, and the burial was held that morning. When word came announcing the death of Mr. Dunbar, Mrs. Dunbar and her daughter were preparing to go south to see him. They at once started for Memphis, and returned with the body. Mr. Dunbar died in the Presbyterian hospital at Memphis from the effects of a congestive chill. He had not been feeling well and had gone to the hospital for treatment.
Mr. Dunbar was about seventy years of age, and had spent practically all his life in the lumbering business. He was born in Main, and leaves a number of relatives in that state. When news of his death first reached here it was supposed that his body would be brought here for burial, but as his daughter is located at Richmond, it was their wish that he be buried there.
