Obituary

Around the Campfire.

Late week Henry A. Silver of Bennington, aged 65 years, dropped dead in his house while talking with his wife. Apoplexy was the cause. The deceased had served three years in Co. E, 10th Vt., and was a member of the Sixth Corps post. He had also been an inmate of the Soldiers' Home.
