Mr. Hrnekott liad nut been in good
health fur nearly a year and in the
past few mouths hail been unable to
give his attention regularly tu the af
fairs of the bank. There had, how
ever, been no indication uf an ininiO'
diate crisis in his condition and he
liail been about the streets, at the
Wheel club and the Country club anil
in his general appearance seemed to
be in fairly good health.
In tho last twu or three days he had
suffered from severe pains in his left
aide and during Sunday his family
phsieian was called to attend him,
About 10 o'clock he letired tu his room
ns usual. Mrs. Hrnekett and her sun
heard him moving about the room
ttlinrtly after this, and a few moments
later Mrs. Urackott went upstairs to
eiv.1 him some medicine, oho was
startled tu find her husband lying un

tary for tlio Valley Mill company, re
maining in the employ of that con
corn two years. His connection with
tlu Peoples bank covered a period of
over 30 years beginning April 1, ISSli.
In l.SS!) he wns advanced from the
position of bookkeeper to that of as
sistant cashier and in ISii.'t, following
the death of Oscar A. Marshall, he was

Mr. Hraekott was uno uf the mosi
capable bank men the state uf Ver
moat lias ever produced. Ho came to
a position of great responsibility at

evidence uf exceptional ability. I'll
dor his direction the Peoples bank had
. grown rapidly and fur years has been
known as one uf thu strongest na
tional banks of the state, ilr. Brack
ett's work in tho unnlc was not per
functory simply a matter ol seeing
that the business wns conducted con
sorvutivcly and accurately. 11c wont
far bevond this, showing his initiative
in many transactions and using his
trust for tho upbuilding of tho busi
ne'ss interests of the town. Whenever
possible he sought to give aid to firms
or individuals needing financial as
sistance. His judgment was sound in
all business affairs and ho was fro
(iiiently called upon to settle estates
and to act as counsellor of people
needing advice in financial matters
Bunkers outside of the state had long
recognized Mr. Urackott as a man ot
great capabilities and on more than
ono occasion ho had been offered ox
ccutivo positiuns with largo city
banks. He, huwever, believed that the
upbuilding of the Peoples bank was
his lifewurk and had always decline
the offers from larger institutions.
Mr. Brackett married Beitha M

Mrs. George A. llines of Brattleborn
