While sitting at the table he was seized with an acute attack of Indigestion, from which he rallied. He was taken to his room, when he was again seized, and died in a few moments. Mr. Gunbv was born in Fruitland, which was then known at Forktown, about 66 years ago.

Slemons. Deceased had a host of friends in Salisbury by whom he was much respected on account of his many sterling traits of character. He is survived by three brothers, Messrs. L.W. Gunby,
