SUDDEN DEATH - Our citizens were unsettled on Sunday
morning last by tidings of the death of Mr. John Ide. The
report proved, alas, too true. Only the day previous he was
attending to his usual vocation as a blacksmith, seemingly in as good
health as usual. At about 4 o'clock in the afternoon, while
shoveling snow from in front of his shop, he was stricken down in a
apoplectic fit, and conveyed home in an unstable condition. He
did not regain consciousness or speech, and died about 4
Mr. Ide had been a resident and active business man among us for more
forty years. However rough the exterior, within there was a good true
ever ready to sympathize with the distressed, and to beat with honest
over oppression and wrong of every name and nature. He had long been a
from rheumatic affliction, but it was hardly conceived that the
would at length strike him in the fearfully sudden form of apoplexy.
The sad event will be received with profound sorrow among a wide circle
of acquaintances. The funeral of Mr. Ide took place from his residence
Water street on Wednesday afternoon last, attended by the largest
concourse of sorrowing friends that has been seen in our village on
any similar occasion for many years.

of the sudden death of one of our old citizens, Mr. Hiram Ingraham.
He went alone into the woods on Saturday to draw logs to the

intelligent account of what happened, if indeed he knew. Whether
he burst a blood vessel, or received a blow from the lever he was using
to load his log, or both, he was unable to say. His distress was
such that he thought he would die on the spot, though he had sufficient
command of himself to hitch his team. After a time he succeeded
in driving home, a distance of half or three quarters of a mile.
