One More Unfortunate.

About four weeks ago a man by the name of Thomas Rahue, who was destitute and with no acquaintance in town, arrived here from Concord, N.H. He was a mechanic, but getting out of work in that city, started on a tramp. Arriving at White River Junction his money gave out and there he was obliged to pawn his tools to get money with which he could procure the most common necessaries of his life, as already he was in the power of that fearful disease, consumption. Arriving in Rutland, he secured work, painting, for T. S. Gilson, and boarded with Augustus Trudo, on West street. About two weeks ago he was prostrated, and his funds running out, help was called for from the town. Although well cared for, his life could not be prolonged, and Tuesday night he died. His wife, whom he left in Concord, was sent for, and arrived here on the night train, too late to see her husband alive. The remains were taken to Concord on the noon train yesterday, accompanied by his sorrowing wife.
