George I. Hagar, a well known business man and a life-long resident of Burlington, dropped dead in Grand Army hall yesterday afternoon from heart disease. Mr. Hagar had gone to the post rooms to go with other members to attend the funeral of W. W. Walker. A friend handed him a new roster, which he was looking over. “Well,” he said, “William is mustered out,” and as he marked the name of Mr. Walker from the list fell back in his chair dead. Mr. Hagar was 62 years of age and leaves a widow and two sons.
