Curtis Farnham of this place, died suddenly Monday night. He painted out of doors all day in the heat, and was taken in the evening with the painter's colic. A physician was sent for but no one could be obtained for several hours. Meanwhile it is supposed the terrible pain caused him to rupture a blood vessel, as he bled a great quantity.
