Joshua M. Hyde Who Died at Soldiers' Home.

The funeral services for the late Joshua M. Hyde, a civil war veteran who died at the Vermont Soldiers' Home July 11, were held Sunday afternoon. Rev. John L. Cole pastor of the Methodist church officiated. Burial was at the home cemetery.

The deceased was one of the few and rapidly diminishing men who formed the backbone of the union in its time of need. He served through two enlistments in the civil war, was a personal friend of the late Buffalo Bill and fought with him in several noted Indian engagements the most important of which was the battle of the Summit.

He was also a prominent figure in the theatrical world and was instrumental in bringing the better and larger eastern productions into the west. He toured the country many times as the advance agent of several successful productions.
