HERMIT FISHERMAN FOUND DEAD
WINOOSKI - MAY, 11 --- Cassius Newton Chase, who led the life of a hermit for many years at Malletts Bay, was found dead in his cottage by two children of Barney Scribner when they went to pay a visit to the aged fisherman. Mr. Chase was 72 years of age and lived in a small hut on the side of the road between the Vermont Inn and Thompson's Point. He had lived in the one-room cottage since the death of his wife several years ago. Most of his time was spent fishing in the bay. Sunday morning the children found him on the floor, and when their efforts to wake him were fruitless they told their parents, who visited the place and found that life was extinct. Selectman Manseau and Health Officer Thabault were summoned, and death was found to be due to heart failure. The remains were removed to the undertaking rooms of A. B. Lavigne, and will be taken to West Bolton for burial. Mr. Chase leaves a brother, and a sister, Mrs. Williams of Cambridge.
