Obituary

Mr. Hiram C. English, son of Henry English, Esq., of Woodstock, died at Cairo, Ill., last week, of pneumonia. He was at the head of the schools of Cairo, which closed their spring term last week, and as a consequence of overwork was stricken down. His wife, who was visiting his father in Woodstock, and expecting him, was sent for by telegraph and left Tuesday morning, but too late to reach his bedside before his death, which took place on Wednesday eve. Mr. English is spoken of by every one as a remarkably promising young man, who was making a most upright, active and useful citizen. He was formerly Adjutant of the 6th Regt. Vt. Vols.
