Obituary

Zeb Mitchell, a hard-working, temperate industrious man, and well known as a faithful brakeman on the Rutland railroad for several years, died Saturday noon, of pneumonia. Mr. M. Leaves a wife and six children, entirely destitute. He was one of the best soldiers in company C of the Twelfth Vermont regiment, and his comrades of the Grand Army will bury him this afternoon, defraying the expenses of the funeral and the interment. Those of our charitably disposed citizens who would help the penniless widow and orphans of an old soldier, can leave their contributions with Warren Gibbs at the office of the Vermont Life Insurance Company. The case is one in every way worthy of benevolence.
