Obituary

Mr. A. H. Selleck, whose serious illness was noticed in these columns a few weeks ago, died in Highlandville, Mass., yesterday (Tuesday) morning. His remains will be brought to this place for interment. They are expected to arrive on the mail train this afternoon and funeral services will be immediately held. Mr. Selleck went to Boston three years ago into the employ of the Colby Wringer Company. He was energetic and resolute in everything that he undertook, a man of positive convictions and many estimable qualities. He was stricken down in the prime of life. His friends and acquaintances will sincerely mourn his untimely death. The warmest sympathy of their former friends and neighbors is felt for the bereaved wife and son.
