Obituary

Major John Halsey Cushman, editor of the Bennington Banner, a much loved and respected citizen, and a bright and genial man, died at his residence in Bennington at about three o'clock Sunday morning. He had been in failing health from consumption for a number of years. He leaves a wife and promising son about nine years of age, and a large circle of friends and relations, to mourn his loss. Mr. Cushman was 49 years of age, and has been editorially connected with the Banner for seven years. He was also a member of the Masonic fraternity, under whose auspices the funeral services were conducted on Tuesday afternoon.
