ADAMS, DR. F.W.
At the Union House, Montpelier, Vt., Dec. 17, ae. 71, interred at Barton. He was a well-known physician of that region, and was highly respected for his skill, and beloved for his devotion and tenderness to the suffering who came under his care. He had many peculiarities and caprices; yet he was a man of large heart, giving half his practice to the poor; and his grave was surrounded by many sincere mourners.

Class of 1878 - EUGENE RANSOM DARLING.
Born, July 4, 1851, Corinth, Vt. Son of Ransom and Caroline (Fellows) Darling. Fitted for college at Barre Academy. He taught at West Point, N.Y., the year 1878-9. From this date to the summer of 1901 he taught in the New York City schools, for much of the time teaching also in an evening school. In 1883-5 he studied at Columbia Law School, and graduated, LL.B., in 1885. He was thereafter a member of a law firm, and did a good deal of office practice. In 1890 he established in his native town - and in fact on his native farm - a summer school for boys, called "Maplewood Farm," where each year he took from twenty to thirty boys from wealthy New York families and gave them an opportunity to study a little and enjoy a great deal of outdoor recreation. In the summer of 1901, his mind gave way, possibly from overwork, and he was committed to the state asylum, where he remained a hopeless invalid until his death.
Died, May 5, 1902, from organic disease of the heart, at Waterbury, Vt.
Unmarried.

PHELPS-In this city, Saturday, March 19th, 1881, Mrs. Julia V.P.J. Phelps, aged 71 years.
Mrs. Phelps was born in Montpelier, Vt. in 1810. In 1832 she was married to the husband she leaves behind, and lived with him 49 years. In 1856, with her family, she came to Maquoketa, and has since made this her home. She was the mother of eight children, four of whom, three daughters and one son, still survive. Mrs. Phelps has been a member of the Baptist Church a great many years and was a consistent Christian. She was respected by all, and in her own family was almost idolized. The good old mother has gone where troubles, cares and pains can never more afflict.

A Card.

Please express our thanks to the many kind friends who were so attentive during our recent trials.
AMOS PHELPS AND FAMILY.
