David Freeman, an eccentric character, of Callao, died at the home of his son, in Marceline last Friday. Deceased was quite wealthy and had lived in and near Callao for many years. He was about seventy-five years old. Ten years ago he decided to make his own coffin. He accordingly procured the best quality of 2-inch oak lumber of which he constructed the coffin, and covered it with common, black cloth, and laid it away for future use, and among other request asked to be placed in the coffin on his left side, when prepared for burial. His remains were taken from Marceline to Callao Sunday and interred according to his wishes.
