Hugh Short Died Saturday at the Home of His Sister.

Hugh Short, a veteran of the Civil war died at the residence of Joseph Watson Saturday afternoon. He was a brother of Mrs. Watson. He was in his usual health at dinner time, went to his room and laid down. When they went to call him he was found dead in bed having apparently breathed his last a couple of hours before.

Comrade Short was 68 years of age, served during the civil war in Company G First Vermont Cavalry; the Bennington County company; and had the reputation of a good soldier. He had been an inmate of the Soldiers home considerable of the time for the last few years. He left there to go to the residence of his sister when he died.

His funeral will be held this afternoon and the burial will be in the Soldiers home cemetery.
