Remains of Late Capt E. E. Dunn
Rest In Oakwood.

The funeral of the late Capt. E. E.
Dunn took place this morning from
the First Methodist church and was
largely attended, and there was an immense
collection of beautiful floral offerings.
The funeral services conducted
by Rev. J. W. Fort were most
impressive, after which the Masons
took charge and conducted the last
sad rites at the grave.

As a mark of respect to the deceased
both the district and county courts
adjourned from 10 o'clock to 11:30 and
practically all of the occupants of the
court house attended the funeral.
