We are sorry to note the death of Mr. Hiram Durham, one of our aged men. He was called from his labors below into the realities of the beyond Sunday, February 26. He fell victim to that much dreaded disease, pneumonia, which carries so many off the field of action. He lasted only a short time after the disease had taken hold of him. The bereaved ones have the sympathy of their friends.
