Abner Miles died last Thursday, after a long illness. His age was seventy-nine years, six months. He was an old soldier, having served two years in the Civil War, and was a member of the John Woodward Post of this town.
Soon after the close of the war he bought a tract of land on Lowell Mountain, where he settled, and reared his family of five children. Bear and other animals of the forest were often in close proximity to the little cabin, but the woodsman's axe held the right of way, and Mr. Miles, with the help of his three sons, cleared the land, which made him a good, productive farm, where he spent his declining years in comfort and plenty.
His wife and five children survive him. The funeral was attended at the house Saturday, at 10:30 o'clock, Rev. J. E, Knapp officiating.
