  • Notes 
    • Edgar M. Scudder, proprietor of the 99 cent store in Trenton, died under melancholy circumstances at his home on Broad street, last Thursday evening. He had been troubled slightly with a small tumor on his back, and to prevent serious consequences decided to have an operation performed for its removal. He called in for that purpose Dr. Will Lewis, who had been his friend from boyhood. Dr. Lewis, to make the operation easier, administered an ordinary dose of chloroform. The tumor was then removed, but Scudder did not revive. He was twenty-six years of age, and leaves a young wife and two pretty children.
