RECENT DEATH:
     Hiram George Fancher died suddenly Sunday afternoon at his home, 238 Pleasant Street, Watertown.  He was apparently as well as ever in the afternoon, when suddenly he felt a severe pain at the base of his brain and complained to his wife.  She hastily dispatched a messenger for medical aid, and tried to soothe the pain, but in less than 20 minutes Mr. Fancher was dead.  Dr. Mead said the breaking of a blood vessel was the cause of death.  Mr. Fancher was born in Essex, N. Y., and was 46 years of age.  He was formerly a stock broker, with an office in Johnson, Vt.  He had lived for the past five years in Watertown, being yard master at the Aetna Mills, and also keeper of the mill boarding house.  He leaves a widow, two sons and a daughter, the eldest son being Assistant Superintendent of the Vermont Industrial School.  The remains will be taken to Johnson, Vt., for interment.

COUNTY COURT.
Case of Sartwell Against Sowles and Ladd Goes to the Jury.
    
When court came in yesterday afternoon Albert Sowles was called and further examined.  He said that he first talked with Sartwell in Feb. 1895 about the defendant vacating the premises and again in March he told him he must leave the farm in April and Sartwell said that he should not unless he was obliged to.
     Mr. Ladd was again recalled and stated that there was no execution attached to the writ of possession.  At this point the defendant rested and the plaintiff called Lawyer Burt to the stand.  He said he knew of the arbitration between Sowles and Sartwell in the spring of 1895 and he had also heard of the ejectment of Mr. Sartwell from the farm.  I had a talk with Mr. Ladd in regard to the service of the writ of possession in favor of Sowles vs. Sartwell and I also had some talk with Mr. Sowles about the writ and told him I thought the process was invalid I talked with Sowles in the spring of 1893 about letting the farm to a Mr. Tudhope.  He told me that he had leased it to Sartwell but I don't remember as he told me for how long a term.  Sowles said he let Sartwell have the farm because he would put on some cows.
     The arguments were made this forenoon and the case will go to the jury this afternoon.
