Very sad was the death of Moses O. Bagley, which occurred Friday afternoon. Mr Bagley was returning home, carrying a basket of clothes, and accompanied by Walter Davis, when he complained of being dizzy. Mr. Davis offered to take the basket, which he had no sooner done than Mr. Bagley sank down unconscious, in which condition he was taken to his home, where he died in died in half an hour. Paralysis, caused by heart failure was the disease. Mr. Bagley had suffered one slight attack of the same some previous.
Deceased came to this place fourteen years ago from Craftsbury. He has worked in the Abbott Mill about thirteen years. He served four years as a private in Co. I, 3d, Reft, Vermont Vols., and drew a pension.
He was twice married and is survived by his last wife and their two children, also a daughter by his former marriage, and by six brothers and one sister. He was formerly a member of the Mechanics Band of this place.
The funeral was very largely attended Sunday afternoon at the Methodist Church, Rev. W. N. Roberts officiating. The G. A, R., Post, S. of V. Camp, Masonic lodge, and the band attended in a body. Deceased was a member of all these organizations.
His former workman at the mill presented a lovely wreath of flowers. E. E. Bagley and wife of Keene, N.H., Orra Hoyt and H. H. Stratton of Morrisville attended the funeral. The oldest son, Scott, of Morrisville, was also called. Interment took place here.

U. S. Grant Post held a memorial service in Grand Army Hall Sunday afternoon in honor of the deceased veterans, James Hebard and Moses Bagley. The exercises opened with the singing by a quartette composed of A. H. Beedle, O. J. Marcott, Dr. Bailey, and D. C. Woodward, and prayers were offered by the Post Chaplain, X. Udall. Then came the reading of the record, and Captain Eldredge, in whose regiment, the 3rd Vermont, Mr, Bagley served, spoke very interestingly of the gentleman's career as a soldier, While Deacon Wilbur Howard bore testimony on his worth as a private citizen. Hon. James Cleveland jr. and Mr. B. J. Pratt spoke of the war record of Mr. Hebard, who was a member of Co. F., 12th Vermont, and Mr. Austin Smith extolled him as a citizen. At he close of the exercises "America" was very appropriately sung.
