North Troy, Oct. 30 - John W. Currier, a prominent Democrat, and one of the best known men of the state, died on Friday at the age of 70 years after an illness of four days.
He leaves a wife, and adopted son, Private Charles D. Currier, now with the United States army in the Philippines and an adopted daughter.
Mr. Currier invented several farm implements, among which is the Currier sap spout. He held many town offices and represented his town in the legislature three terms. He had also been Democratic candidate for Congress and lieutenant-governor. Every national convention since 1872 he attended either as delegate or alternate. Under Cleveland's first administration he was United States marshall.
He was with the Union troops all through the Civil War, and was a member of Bailey post of this place.
