Charles Strickland, a barber, was taken with bleeding of the lings or bronchial tubes, on the morning of the 17th, and this soon checked, at about 4 o'clock p. m., he was seized with a fit of coughing and a moment later the blood flowed in torrents, and death ensued almost instantly. He served in the 6th Vermont regiment upwards of three years and while in service laid the foundation for the disease which has brought him to an untimely grave. He was believed to have been entitled to a pension and an application had been made for the same but a short time previous. Should it be allowed it will be fortunate for his two small fatherless children who stand in need of it.
