Obituary

William Camp of Bennington died at the home of Dexter Bishop Thursday of heart disease. Mr. Camp came from Bennington only a few days ago and intended to make his home with Mr. Bishop for a time. Tuesday evening he was walking in the back yard when he caught his foot in a wire fence and fell heavily, injuring his stomach. These injuries were not of themselves serious and his recovery was expected until it was found that a heart trouble, with which he had been afflicted, had been aggravated by the fall and this caused his death. Mr. Camp was a man about 60 years of age and was a stranger here, but in his old home has many friends who mourn his sudden death. The funeral arrangements have not been completed.
