Word was received here this morning announcing the death of H. H. McKnight at the home of his father in Normal, Ill. last night at 9 o’clock. A second telegram stated that the interment would take place in this city and that the funeral party would leave Normal for here tomorrow morning at 9:30 o’clock.  Mr. McKnight has long been a sufferer and his death was no surprise to his friends and relatives here. His acquaintance here is of long standing having been a student here for several years and only last October being married to one of our most noble young ladies, Miss Minnie Austin. Immediately after his marriage he left with his wife for Stephensville, Texas, where he was cashier in the city bank. Last March his health began to failing so rapidly that they left for Hot Springs, Ark., where he remained for some time leaving about two months ago for his father’s home in Normal, Ill., where he died yesterday. He dies mourned by a large circle of friends to whom his many noble traits had endeared him. His young wife who has so faithfully fulfilled her part merits and receives the deepest sympathy of all who know her.  A letter received this afternoon states that the funeral will be held tomorrow at the residence of A. C. Austin at 5 p.m., Revs. Cunningham and Switzer officiating. The burial will be at Oak Hill. - thanks S
