Obituary

James W. Jones lived 15 years in Waterbury, then removed to Canada, where he resided one year, and then went to New Hampshire, from whence he returned to Vermont, and has recently lived at St. Albans. For five years he has been afflicted with bronchial consumption, and on Friday last he came to Montpelier to draw his pension, though unable to sit up the day before. On his return he got as far as Waterbury, where he was compelled to stop, and to relieve his suffering took morphine, which proved an overdose, he never awaking from the sleep it threw him into.
