Dr. A. B. Cunningham of Attica died suddenly Monday morning from heart trouble. The circumstanstances are described as follows in the Daily Ledger of Monday: "He stood by the stove for a short time, and then taking a buckect went out to milk the cow. He returned in a few minutesfor some warm water, and his wife was in the act of getting it for him when he started to fall. He caught hold of Mrs. Cunningham's arm, but his weight forced both to the floor, Mrs. Cunningham being underneath him. She was unable to get up and her screams brought her daughter-in-law to the kitchen. She succeeded in getting Mrs. Cunningham up by turning her husband over. He died as soon as he fell. His son Will had eaten his breakfast and was started down the street, but was summoned back at once. Many of the neighbors soon came in, but the deceased was beyond resuscitation." Dr. Cunningham was a dentist by profession, and widely known. His death comes close to our citizens, as he was nearly as well known here as in his own county.
