After a short illness caused by heart and kidney trouble, Samuel Smith passed away last week Tuesday. Mr. Smith moved here from Bath, N. H., two years ago. He had been unable to engage in active work for some time, being at times nearly blind. A shock of paralysis hastened his death. He served in the navy during the Civil War, and was in several engagements. A devoted wife and six children are left to mourn his loss.
