News came Tuesday evening of the death in Canandaigua, N.Y., of Clark Elwell, a prominent farmer of Bennington county, and well known. He resided in Shaftsbury and went from there a few weeks ago to visit relatives in western New York. No news had been received of his illness. Mr. Elwell was 65 years of age. The remains arrived here yesterday and were taken to Shaftsbury, where the funeral will be held. He leaves a wife, a son, and a daughter.

Clark Elwell of Bennington was found on the outskirts of Naples, N.Y., dead from a number of severe wounds in the head. Two men, who were seen drinking with him, have been arrested and the case looks black against them. Robbery is supposed to have been the motive.
