Abner Ernest Strong.
Died last week in Ashtabula, O., of consumption, Abner Ernest Strong, A. B., 1885. The deceased will be remembered by his classmates and friends as an excellent scholar, genial, ambitious and energetic in disposition, and of consistent Christian character. Coming to college with but meagre preparation, he at once took high rank for scholarship, which he maintained throughout the course. After graduation he accepted a position as instructor in Groton Academy, but rapidly failing health soon compelled him to retire. The class whose number is now for the first time since graduation broken, loses one of its most promising members, and his friends a true examplar of firm Christian manhood.
