Death of Albert Hill.
Albert Hill died at his residence in this place Friday, April 16, aged 67 years. Mr. Hill was sick only about 10 days with neuralgia around the heart. The funeral service was held at the Universalist church Sunday at 3:30 p.m., Rev. Mr. Hoyt of St. Johnsbury officiating. Deceased has been a resident of this town for many years. When a young man he spent a few years in California and was afterwards a veteran n the civil war, serving under Butler at New Orleans and Banks at Port Hudson. Mr. Hill at one time worked for O.F. Harvey and later for R.S. Brigham in a store. For the last few years he has lived quietly on the bounty bestowed by the government. A man of fixed opinions and outspoken in all things, yet he was always genial in his ways and pleasant to meet, never mixing up with other people's affairs but attending strictly to his own business. Mr. Hill made friends and kept them. Mrs. Hill and the other relatives and friends of the deceased have the sympathy of the entire community, who feel that they have not only lost a true friend and a good neighbor, but an honest, upright man from their midst.
