Obituary

VETERAN DROPPED DEAD
Enos Douglass, Shelburne Farmer, Was in His Yard.

Shelburne, Aug. 14. - Enos Douglass, sr., dropped dead at a quarter to six last evening at his house at Shelburne Falls as he started to cut some grass for his horse. He was 77 years of age and death was due to heart trouble.

Mr. Douglass was seen when he fell by his little granddaughter, who immediately summoned help and neighbors carried him into the house. But they were unable to revive him.

Mr. Douglass was a veteran of the Civil war, serving as a bugler in Co. B, 11th Vermont. Beside his wife, he leaves two sons, Frank Douglass and Enos Douglass, jr., and three daughters, Mrs. Alice Devoid of Monkton, Mrs. Henry Winterbottom of Burlington and Miss May Douglass, who lives at home.

The funeral will be Monday afternoon at two o’clock at his house.
