Obituary

C. G. Guyette, who took arsenic, as detailed last week, died last Friday. An autopsy was held the same day, under the direction of Dr. C. M. Chandler, assisted by Drs. Sumner Putnam, J. B. Macomber, D. G. Kemp, C. M. Scribner and Charles Chandler. They found enough to satisfy then that he died from arsenical poisoning. The funeral was attended on Sunday by Rev. J. Edward Wright, Post Brooks, of Montpelier, escorting the remains to the grave. As a possible cause for the deed was thought to be insanity, a careful inspection of the brain was made. It was found that there was a small crack on the base of the skull and a depression of about the size of a chestnut, with a corresponding dislocation of the tissues of the brain, which in the opinion of the physicians might have caused such mental derangement as to make him melancholy, and take his own life in the manner he died.
