A sad gloom spread over Barnard and adjoining towns when news came of the death of Frank Stiles. He was a good citizen and a kind neighbor, open-hearted with a generous disposition, making his loss deeply felt. Mr. Stiles was a horseman of considerable note, having bred and owned some that were fine and fast. His genial, cheerful face will be sadly missed at our country fairs, where he was exceedingly popular. The funeral was held at his late residence the 25th, Rev. W. A. Warner of Bethel officiating. Burial was at the North End cemetery. Mr. Stiles leaves a widow, one son and three daughters, besides a host of friends to mourn his loss.
