Had Practiced Medicine in Cambridge for 50 Years.

Cambridge, Feb. 27. - Dr. E. R. Brush died at his home early this morning of neuralgia of the heart. He was born in this town 72 years ago, April 15 next, and had practiced his profession here for 50 years. The funeral will be held Monday morning at 10:30 o'clock.

Doctor Brush had been in ill health for about a week and this morning arose at six o'clock to attend to the fires. He was seized with pains in the heart, lay down upon a lounge and expired. He was a prominent Mason, and for 28 years a justice of the peace, served in the Civil War as surgeon of the 2nd Vermont regiment and was president of the board of pension examiners at Morrisville. He was graduated from the University of Vermont in 1858. He succeeded to the practice of his father, who was a physician here for 54 years, and with him shared the distinction of being the leading practitioner in Cambridge. He is survived by his wife and two sons, Clarence F. Brush of Bolton and Aden L. Brush of this town.
