Mr. Z.E. Brown Reported Dying

The above person is a relative of Dr. and J.D. Witter, of this city. Two years ago he was in this city the guest of Dr. Witter and received great help from his treatment. The following about his condition is taken from the St. Paul Pioneer Press:—A telegram has been received from Los Angeles, Cal., stating that Zelora E. Brown, the well known real estate agent and former partner of H.O. Hamlin, was in a dying condition. In response to this sad message Mrs. Brown and her son left yesterday for California. During the major portion of last summer Mr. Brown had suffered much from bilious disorders, and left for the Pacific coast early in the winter in the hope that a change of climate would prove beneficial. It appears, however, that the disease continued to make rapid progress, and all remedial objects proved unavailing. Prior to engaging in the real estate business Mr. Brown had been a commercial traveler, and was very generally and favorably known throughout the state. Personally he was esteemed by all with whom he came in contact, and the unfavorable report in regard to his condition will create deep regret in his extended circle of acquaintances.

Later—Mr. Brown died in Los Angeles, Wednesday last.
