Obituary

DEATH CAME SUDDENLY TO FRANK E. CUTTS Dropped Dead at Home of His Daughter, Mrs. Green, Last Evening - A Long-Time Resident of Barre.

Heart failure claimed another victim last night when Frank E. Cutts, a long time resident of the city dropped dead at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Eva M. Green of Bugbee avenue. Mr. Cutts was sitting by the front door during the evening and at about 10 o'clock his grandson went into the house and in passing asked Mr. Cutts if he was not coming into the house. He received a reply in the affirmative. Mrs. Green, thinking that she would see why he did not come in went to the door and was unable to open it as Mr. Cutts had fallen back against it. Mr. Cutts was apparently dead when she got to him. Dr. McSweeney was called and pronounced the cause of death to be heart failure. Mr. Cutts was in about his usual health yesterday except that his heart had troubled him slightly. He was 67 years of age, was born in Newport and had made his home in Barre a greater part of the time for 29 years. Mr. Cutts was a veteran of the Civil War having served in Company E of the 9th Vermont regiment and was a member of the G.A.R. He had recently received notice of an increase in his pension. He is survived by two daughters, Mrs. Hugh Jameson of Providence, R. I., Mrs. Eva M. Green of this city with whom he lived, and one son, Fred E. Cutts of the Union Clothing company.

He also leaves two brothers and two sisters, Allen E. Cutts of Barre, W. L. Cutts of Groton, Mrs. W. F. Bradford, and Mrs Charles Larkin of this city.

The funeral arrangements are not yet completed.
