Florence Miner records the death of Charles H. Scott, who was well-known here,
having been connected with the Black Hornet mine. At the time of his death he was deputy recorder of the
Buffalo Hump District.
Miner says: On Wednesday afternoon, December 21, at 3:30 o’clock, Charles H.
Scott died of inflammation of the kidneys.
At the age of 34 years, the Great Ruler of the universe has seen fit to take from the midst of friends and loved ones our esteemed friend, whom all admired for his sterling qualities, his staunch manhood, his charity and goodness of heart.
