Well Known Montpelier Man Died Yesterday.

Montpelier, Nov. 4. - Frank Butterfly died this morning at his home on Whittier street, after having been ill for the past year with liver and kidney troubles. He has been confined to his bed for the past four weeks. Mr. Butterfly was born in Montpelier 58 years ago. He was a veteran of the civil war, member of the Third Vermont Light Artillery, also a member of Brooks Post, G.A.R.

Besides a wife he is survived by two daughters, Mrs. Frank Esterbrook of Montpelier, and Miss Catherine Butterfly of Keene, N.H.

Mr. Butterfly was a granite and marble polisher by trade and worked at it until ill health obliged him to give up work. At one time he was a member of the Montpelier fire department. When the civil war broke out he enlisted and went to the front, where he fought valiantly and well. He was taken ill with the fever and at one time all hope of his recovery was given up, but his strong constitution aided him to rally from the attack.
