Obituary

St. Johnsbury

Curtis Farnham of this place, died suddenly Monday night. He painted out of doors all day in the heat, and was taken in the evening with the painter's colic. A physician was sent for but no one could be obtained for several hours. Meanwhile it is supposed the terrible pain caused him to rupture a blood vessel, as he bled a great quantity.
