In the death of Oliver Dinwiddle
the community loses one of its best
citizens. He was a hard-working
man, and had the confidence and re
spect of all who knew him. The de
ceased has resided In this vicinity
for many years, and bis character was
one of which anyone would be proud
of. He was a member of the Presby
terian church, and was a steadfast
believer In teachings of the bible.
He was a constant attendant at Sun
day school and services generally, and
the people of the community looked
upon him as a true christian gentle
man, and with that honesty which
truly characterizes the nobleness of
man. Those who knew him beBt,
were his truest friends. The citizens
of Murray and vicinity were pained
to learn of his death, although his
demise was no surprise, as he had
been very ill for several days.

This morning about 7 o'clock Oli
ver E. Dinwiddle who has been sick
at the Perkins House for some days
died. It was two weeks ago that on
the advice of his physician, Dr. Bren
del, the sick man was brought to
Plattsmouth from the Charles Spang
ler farm which he was tending this
season, so that he could have better
attention and care.
Mr. Winwiddle was a bachelor be
tween forty and forty-five years of
age and at first had an attach of ln
termitant fever and because of the
fact that he lived alone the doctor
advised him to go to a hospital or
anywhere he could have care and
nursing. He came to Plattsmouth
and to the Perkins House because

proprietor, John Cory.
The man was not thought to be
very sick and having a nurse to wait
on him it was thought that he would
soon pull through. But later It was
found that he was seriously 111, and
yesterday a second nurse was called
from Omaha, but the skill of the phy
sicians and the careful nursing was
unavailing against the inroads of dis
