Obituary

DIES AFTER MEAL.
Ellery H. Carter of Concord, N.H., Succumbs to Acute Indigestion.

Montpelier, Feb. 17. Ellery H. Carter of Concord, N.H., while visiting Mrs. S. H. Morey, his daughter, here, died suddenly yesterday afternoon. He ate his usual dinner, but was in acute pain a short time afterward, which seemed relieved until 3:30 when it developed again and he died in a few minutes. He was a Civil War veteran of the 11th Vermont regiment and a painter by trade. He leaves a wife of Concord, N.H., and one daughter, Miss Grace Carter of Foxboro, Mass. The funeral will be held at three o'clock this afternoon.
