    • It is with pain we record this week the sudden death of another of our worthy citizens - Abram M. Carpenter - the sad event occurring last Sunday afternoon near 1 o'clock. He was attending to his usual work on Tuesday morning, and was taken with severe pains about noon; the illness continued to grow worse, and notwithstanding every effort to relieve him, the disease terminated fatally. Mr. Carpenter was in his 57th year, and an old resident, having come here from New Hampshire about 20 years ago, and engaged in the business of blowing glass, which he followed up to within 8 years, since when he has been a flattener at the Union glass works.

      He was a very large framed man, and weighed about 220lbs. Of pleasant, open countenance, and genial, winning ways, he made friends without number, and it can be safely said that there was not one who bore him ill will. He was a good citizen - a plain, pretending, sympathetic man; kind to his family, liberal toward humanity; and the intelligence of his death occasioned deep sadness not only here but wherever he was known. The funeral was very largely attended at the M.E. Church, of which he was a member and class leader, on Tuesday. Rev. J.W. Roberts, formerly pastor of the church, came on here and conducted the services. [3]
