Mr. A. F. Scott has received a copy of the Cheyenne, Wyoming, Daily Sun containing the following account of the sudden death of his grandson, Joseph McNutt, at Denver, Col.:
Mr. J. K. Jeffrey received a dispatch from Mrs. Jeffrey, who is visiting her sister Mrs. McNutt in Denver saying that Mrs. McNutt's youngest son Joseph, died yesterday morning. The lad was a bright, little fellow of six years, and he will be remembered here by many friends of Lieut. and Mrs. McNutt. The boy had only been sick a day or two and his sudden death was a great surprise to relatives and friends here. The body will be brought to this city by the noon train to-day and will be taken to the residence of Mr. Jeffrey, from which place the funeral will occur on Monday afternoon at 2 o'clock. Friends and acquaintances of Lieut. and Mrs. McNutt and of the Jeffrey family are to be present.
