In 1887 he went to California, where he remained until 1899 when the family moved to this place and Mr. Pratt, who was a mining expert, was put in charge of the copper mines which were being opened in Berkshire. The funeral will be held today, Saturday, from his late home, the Rev. F.E. White officiating and the burial will be in Missisquoi cemetery.
