From Our Special Correspondent

St. Johnsbury, Vt., May 8 --- The death the past week of Moody H. Evans, 97, takes the last member of Chamberlin post, No 1, Grand Army of the Republic, and leaves but one other Civil War veteran in Vermont, Gilbert Lucier of Jay. The St. Johnsbury post was organized April 10, 1868, the second year of the Grand Army of the Republic and in 1899 had 208 members. Its last department commander was Charles A. Heyer of St. Johnsbury, who died last year at the age of 94, having enlisted fro St. Johnsbury when only 15.

Comrade Evans was a native of Newbury, Vt., where he was born May 25, 1845. He enlisted from Kirby in the 3d Vermont regiment the last year of the war, serving but six months. He returned to Victory where he engaged in lumbering, and about 40 years ago came to St. Johnsbury where he has since resided. His wife died 56 years ago and he is survived by two daughters, Mrs. Nancy Spencer of Brattleboro and Mrs. Belle Hatch of Littleton, N.H.
