Prominent Essex Farmer Passes Away Suddenly Yesterday. Essex Junction, July 25. - Horace C. Blinn, aged 68, a prominent farmer, died suddenly early yesterday at his home north of this village. Mr. Blinn was apparently in his usual good health up to within a short time before his death. He arose at his usual hour and attended to his regular duties about the farm barns. As he came in and was preparing for breakfast he complained to his wife of feeling ill. She went to an adjoining room to get some medicine and upon her return found her husband dead in his chair. The funeral will be held at the late home, tomorrow morning at 9 o'clock. Mr. Blinn is survived by his wife and one daughter, Mrs. E. M. Hurson of this town. He was a native of Essex and a veteran of the Civil War.
