Mr. Alson D. Mears, one of our most respected citizens passed to rest the 26th, after an extended struggle with Bright's disease and heart trouble. The deceased was 68 years of age and had resided here 23 years. Mr. Mears was a man of sterling worth. He was devoted to his home and family, a genial host and honored citizen, having represented the town in the Legislature four years ago and had held many other offices of trust which he fulfilled faithfully.
