We clip the following notice of the death of Frank Blanchard from a Syracuse paper. Young Blanchard was well and favorably known here : The beautiful Sunday last was a day of gloom and sadness to this place, for it brought the mournful in telligence that Frank Blanchard, only son of Capt. A. J. Blanchard, and one of the best known and most pop ular young men of Sycamore, had sud denly died of consumption at Brady City", Tex. No one was prepared for such an event, not even his parents. For a few months he had had some difficulty with his throat and lungs, but he was so broad shouldered, so ruddy and so strong and manly in his appearance that people felt that he must throw off the disease that threat ened him. lie went to Texas in Jan uary, but soon began to grow worse.

It was a costume party and old folks' concei t, interspersed with recitations, panto mimes, &c.

The stage was set with a scene representing an old-time kitch en, the open fire-place and high man tle, with its ancient decorations, being the prominent furniture. Dr. Allen introduced the characters separately, which added greatly to the entertain ment. Then came songs bv the "old" folks, under the direction of I. L. Pearl, which carried the audience back to "the days of yore." The singing throughout was good. " Majesty," Ode to Science," and "Easter An them" ' being well rendered. The "Maids of Attitash," was nicely re cited by Genie Austin. The audience was "highly entertained with c red Crowell's rendition of "Jimmy Butler and the Owl," which could not have been better. "The Three Little Toad stools" was personated by the little Misses Campbells and Baker. So well was this received that a repetition was given' in response to the prolonged en core It was among the best things of the evening. The scene from Miles Standish was good ; Dr. Allen making a vpritahle Miles, while the parts of John Alden and Priscilla Mullins were well taken by David Holmes and Laura Bickford. "The Three Maids ol .bee, introduced in song by Lizzie Pearl, was amusing. And so on through the entire programme, everything being well rendered aild showing much prep aration.

His funeral was attended at his lace residence at 12 o'clock on Thursday, with marks of esteem by his life long neighbors, his childreu all being present. The people of this place were shocked last Friday morning, when it was known that Emerson Carpenter had committed suicide by hanging. He was living with his brother Lewis at the time. He had been sick all winter and did not get any better, and for the last week he had seemed despondent. That morning he eat his breakfast and seemed the same as usual, except that he appeared to be la boring under some meutal excitement. After breakfast he laid down for a few minutes, and then said he would go down to the field where his brother was. In a few minutes it was found that he was not there, and on search being made he was found hanging in the barn. He was a nice young man, and what could have led him to do the rash act none can tell, for anv meddlesome, revengeful neighbors. it Is to them to wnom sue muse iook, as the instigators of the story. There is ample proof of her innocence in the facts alleged against her, as well as well as in the other story of the boots, to which your reporter referred. We think he would do well to remember these words; "Whv beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?" As we have many quiet, peaceable citizens in this Dlace. we thiuk it but justice that they should be classed as such, rather than gossiping, meddlesome neighbors. Truth.
