DEAD MAN'S ASHES
By PARCEL POST
Grewsome (sic) Package Containing
Ashes of Californian Mailed
Denver, Colo., March 5--"Here is a dead man" was the comment made by a parcel post clerk here today as he held up to the view of his fellow clerks a package nine inches square and weighing seven pounds.
The package contained the ashes of Edward E. Knotts of California, who died here a few days ago following an attack of appendicitis.
The package was addressed to the widow, Mrs. Ada Knotts, San Francisco. It cost 51 cents postage and bore a 10 cent insurance stamp.
