David SHORT, a citizen of Leon for many years, died last Monday at 10 a.m. and was buried in the Leon Cemetery at 4 p.m. Tuesday, services being conducted by Rev. ILSLEY. His death was the result of aggravated dysentery.

David P. SHORT was born in Perry County, Ohio, April 19, 1823. In childhood his father's family moved to Harrison County, Indiana, and thence he moved to Mercer County, Illinois, after he became to mature years. He came to Decatur County in 1869 and to Leon about twenty-four years ago. In 1844 Mr. SHORT was married in Harrison County, Indiana, to Miss Sarah A. BRYLES, who died in Mercer County, Ill., in 1858. About three years later, he was married to Mrs. Abigail A. HOWE, who survives him. Of his family, two daughters remain, Mrs. W. A.
