The news of the death of J. Owsley Dunn at his home in Richmond carried sorrow to the hearts of many friends here who a few short years ago looked upon him as a young man of great promise and destined to make his mark in the mercantile world. They remember too under what auspicious surroundings he led to the altar, the lovely and highly accomplished Miss Julia Craig. The one is now a corpse, the other a grief stricken widow, while yet almost in the bloom of life. The dispensations of Providence are sometimes past the understanding of man. Blessed is he that can always feel that He doeth all things well. Mr. Dunn had been in bad health for some time and at the time of his death was suffering from an attack of hemorrhage of the bowels. Being very restless his physician gave him a dose of morphine, which was repeated on its failure to quiet him, he finally sank to sleep. About 5 o'clock Tuesday morning his wife became alarmed at his heavy breathing and sent for her father, who did not think the circumstances alarming. An hour afterwards the heavy breathing ceased and upon examination he was found to be dead, the physician pronouncing that death had been caused by paralysis of the heart. The remains were brought to Lancaster Wednesday and laid by those of his relatives that had preceeded him to the tomb. His young wife came home with her sister, Mrs. J. E. Bruce, and is now with her. If tender sympathy can assuage her grief or make it less poignant, she has the consolation of knowing that in the home of her youth and young maidenhood all hearts are turned to her in the hour of her terrible bereavment.
