Charles L. Dunnington died at 5 o’clock Monday morning at his home at the corner of Cain street and Robinson alley. He had been in failing health for five years or more.

Mr. Dunnington was born here and was widely known and had a great many friends.

Years ago he clerked in W. H. Freeman’s store at the old depot.

Later he clerked for W. P. Holden & Company, and was with them twelve years. He went from them to R. T. Lowndes’ department store, where he filled a clerkship until bad health compelled him to retire.

He was a very fine salesman and a most excellent judge of dry goods.

Funeral services were conducted at 2:30 o’clock Wednesday afternoon and interment was made in the I. O. O. F. cemetery.

The wife survives him. They had no children. He was 65 years old.
