East Middlebury -- Charles Piper died suddenly on Tuesday morning, at 1:30 o'clock, aged 57 years. Mr. Piper was a soldier of the War of the Rebellion, and had spent most of his life in this town. He had but just returned from a visit to a brother, Luke Potter, in New York State, and was taken sick on his way home, at which he arrived at 11 o'clock the night before. His death was thought to be a stroke of paralysis. Funeral services were held from the Methodist Church on Wednesday at 2 o'clock. Rev. A. I. Christie conducted the service.
