    Chief of Police of Shelbyville Dies at King's Daughters Hosp.
    Kidney Trouble of Long Standing and the Shock Following a Surgical Operation Were Fatal.
    The not-unexpected death of Mr. Oscar D. Duncan occurred last Friday morning at half-past six o'clock at the Kings Daughters Hosp. Where he underwent a surgical operation the Monday before. For more than a year he had been a sufferer of diabetes, and for a number of years had been afflicted with sore feet, the result of frostbite. The latter trouble had gradually progressed until the great toe on his right foot became so seriously affected that his physician advised him to have it amputated. Hoping that relief could be obtained and not have the toe removed, he declined to heed the doctor's advice. His organic ailment, and the condition of his toe grew worse, and about a week before his death, gangrene having set in, it was announce that the only hope of saving his life, lay in the removal of his foot. He was taken to the hospital and his right foot was amputated at the point seven inches below the knee. It was believed shortly after the operation that Mr. Duncan would recover, but in his weakened condition, due to his prolonged suffering of kidney trouble, he was not physically able to withstand the shock, and it was soon apparent that he could not live. He grew weaker and weaker until the time above mentioned, when his spirit took its flight.
    Oscar Duncan was born and reared in the Bagdad neighborhood and was fifty-two yrs. of age. For twenty years he had been a member of the Police force of Shelbyville, and for the past eight years, had been Chief of Police. He was a good officer and popular with all who knew him. He is survived by his wife, who was formerly Miss Belle Peyton of Franklin Co., and seven children: four daughters, Mrs. Stella Donahue of this City; Mrs. George J. Bishop, of Indianapolis; Mrs. James Shackelford, of Ashland, Ky.; and Miss Pauline Duncan who resides at home, and three sons, Wm. Duncan, of Newark, N.J.; Thompson and Frank Duncan, of this place. He also leaves one brother, Porter Duncan, of Louisville, and three sisters. Two of his sisters, Mrs. J.D. McCormack and Mrs. John Allen, live here.
    The funeral services were conducted at the Baptist Church Sunday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock by the pastor, Dr. T.H. Athey. The internment was in Grove Hill Cemetery. The pall-bearers were Lewis Carwile and C.B. Arnsparger, of the police force and Everett Carter, Ed Amyx, Scott Moore and Ed Rice, of the fire dept.
