          Col. Thomas Chafee  quietly celebrated his seventy-fourth birthday today at his home on west Pennsylvania street.  Mr. Chafee observed the day by performing his work as a bill poster.  He has hosts of friends in this city and thruout the county, to wish him many recurrences of the day.
          Mr. Chafee was born in Brookville, Ind., July 26, 1845.  He came to Shelbyville from Connersville in 1862.  During his stay here he has been a dentist, printer and bill poster, bill posting being his present occupation.  He practiced dentistry for ten years, but had to give it up because of being confine in an office.  Mr. Chafee likes the out-of-door, which probably is the reason for his present excellent health.
          He is a veteran of the civil war and is now commander of the local organization of the G.A.R., Dumont Post.  He comrades regard him with respect and love and his elevation to the head of this wonderful organization attests to his popularity.
