Chelsea -- Egerton P. Hood, who died of suicide at Lowell, Mass on Saturday night, was buried in this town on Tuesday, having been born here 61 years ago. He has been in poor health for a long time, and went to Florida this last summer for his health, but came home despondent.
He was a member of Co. E., 2d. Vt. Volunteer infantry, Capt. Orville Bishop's company, also of the G. A. R., and had been a letter carrier in Lowell for 12 years, through republican and democratic administrations, and was much liked.
