Obituary

George Bell received news last week of the sudden death of his brother, Abraham Bell, in Essex, Conn. He was ill but a few hours. He will be remembered here by some, as he visited his brother a few months ago. He was a veteran of the Civil war, having served in one of the Vermont regiments.
