Obituary

Death of Lucius Noyes Vilas.

A telegram received by his friends, yesterday, gives the sad intelligence of the death of Lucius Noyes Vilas, at his home in Greely, Colorado, on the 19th inst. Mr. Vilas removed thither a few years since, hoping to ward off his disease, consumption, by a change of climate. He was a young man of unblemished character, and his death is a great blow to his afflicted family, and his friends, of whom he had many in the community. He leaves a devoted wife, who will doubtless accompany his remains, which are to be brought to this his home for interment, due notice of which will appear hereafter.
