Lewis Sault died of dropsy of the heart last Monday afternoon at his home on Park street, after a distressingly painful illness, aged 49 years. A few hours before his death he received the last rites of the church at the hands of Rev. Father Donahue, of Northfield. Deceased was a member of U. S. Grant Post, and that organization is to attend the funeral in a body. During the late war he participated in 28 engagements. He leaves a wife and three children. His funeral is to be held this morning from St. Mary’s church, Rev. Father Donahue officiating.
