Isaac E. Bernard, a well-known citizen of Andover, died at the residence of his sister in Cavendish, after a short and severe illness. Mr. B. Was a grandson of the late Jenison Barnard of Springfield, Vt., and one of the "five brothers" who passed through four years of hard fighting in the Rebellion, in the Union army, and came out unscathed. For a few years past he has done an extensive business in decorative or fresco paper hanging, - a system of decoration with tissue paper of his own invention. Throughout all the large towns of New England he was familiarly known as "Frisco." and his genial countenance and tasty jobs will doubtlessly be missed in the seasons to come. In Andover where he owned a large farm and a lath and shingle mill, he was known as a thorough business man, a good neighbor and citizen.
