frequently confined to the house for
days he was able to be about more
or less all winter and up to within"
about three weeks was able to be
He realized when the last attack
came upon him that his end was
near and so expressed himself. He
died peacefully. The funeral will
take place from his late residence
Thursday afternoon at 1 oVlock,
and the interment will lyn the
village cemetery.
Waldo Brigham was born in
Bakcrsficld June 10, 1829, the son
of Asa Brigham, and is the last of the
family. He was a farm bred boy
and received his early education at
Bakcrsfield and fitted for college
under the tutorship of Jacob Spauld
ing. He graduated from the Univer

course in 1So4. He chose the legal
profession and read law at Hyde

Lamoille County Bar at the May
term, 1857. Then he went to East
Berkshire and practiced law five
years in Hon. Homer E. Roycc's
office while the latter ws a member
of Congress.
In 1SG1 he located in Hyde Park
and for a time was in the office
of John A. Child. In 1862, he
formed a partnership with George L.
Waterman, under the firm name of
Brigham & Waterman, a partner
ship which was kept up for 22 years
and was one of the strongest law
firms in this part of the state. In
1SS-1 owing to the failure of Mr.
Waterman's health the finn dissolved
and on May 1, the same year Mr.
Brigham and his son-in-law II. M.
McFarland formed a firm. which con
tinued three years. Since that time,
1SS7, Mr. Brigham has been out of
active practice, owing to the condi
tion of his health.
A fellow lawyer who has known
him for years, says : "He enjoyed the
reputation not only of being a jjood
lawyer, but of being an honorable
practitioner, and he always has en
couraged young lawyers in their
legal business and aspirations."
During the construction of the P.
& 0. Railroad Mr. Brigham took an
active interest in the same and spent
several years m securing

by his party for county senator and
state's attorney, was the nominee
for Congress in the 3d district and
again in the 1st district, and was
in l:s?2 the nominee of his party in
the General Assembly for the office of
l mted States Senator. In 18G7-S
he represented Hyde Park in the
General Assembly and during that
time labored faithfully in securintr
the necessary legislation for the con
struction of our railroad.

an earnest advocate of the appro
