Died: [Further to the death of Ed. H. Manlove, above for Jan 14th] -Last week's Prescott Eagle contained the following tribute of respect to the memory of one of Prescott's foremost business men recently deceased: By the death of Ed H. Manlove, Prescott loses one of its best citizens. Though young-being only 32 years old-he was second to no one in the county, as a business man. He was scrupulously honest, strictly adhered to the theory, "that right will always triumph," and shaped all his business dealings according to this principle; abhorred deception in any form, and though his manner of frankness would sometimes appear a little too blunt, yet in the end would create respect. He possessed a public spirit, was generous and charitable to the worthy. He duly appreciated the enjoyments of life, and earnestly longed to live. But an All wise Providence saw fit to remove him from earth. He leaves his family well provided for in worldly goods, and still better an inheritance of a stainless name.

You lived long before I was born, but I have researched your life so much I feel that I know you well. Rest in peace, Edwin, you are loved and not forgotten.
