Obituary

Death of G. W. Baillet

George W. Baillet, who has been spending the summer with his daughter, Mrs. C. H. Sanborn, died at the Mary Fletcher hospital in Burlington, Friday evening. Mr. Baillet went to the hospital Friday morning, accompanied by Mrs. Sanborn, for an operation for strangulated hernia with which he had been suffering since the previous Monday. He was informed that his age and physical condition rendered the outcome of the operation exceedingly doubtful, but it was his one chance for life and he took it.

Mr. Baillet was 74 years old and his home was in Lillydale, N.Y. He retired from business several years ago and devoted his time to reading and some studied in which he was deeply interested. He was a veteran of the civil war and at the battle of Gettysburg lost an eye from the bursting of a shell.

A wife and daughter and a sister in LaCrosse, Wis., survive him.

The funeral was held from the residence of C. H. Sanborn Sunday afternoon at 4 o'clock. Rev. E. J. Ranslow officiated and the bearers were D. G. Furman, H. J. Brown, F. N. Haff and A. l. Cross. The burial was in Riverside cemetery.
