ALDERMAN'S INJURY PROVED FATAL


Passed Away Sunday Morning at Norwich Hospital.


Never Regained Consciousness --- How His Injuries Were Received Will Always Remain a Mystery --- Was 32 Years of Age.


Merton Chester Alderman, who was fatally injured by the kick or trampling of a horse at the Crawe farm last Thursday morning, passed away at the Norwich hospital about eight o'clock Sunday morning without regaining consciousness after the accident. Mr. Alderman, who worked for Everett Spicer on the Crawe farm, was found unconscious in the stall of one of the farm horses just before noon Thursday last. His condition showed that he was terribly injured about the head, and physicians were hurriedly summoned. Dr. White of this place and Dr. Gould of Sherburne were soon on the scene, and they recommended his immediate removal to the Norwich hospital. He was unconscious and suffering from wounds in his head which depressed portions of his skull onto the brain. An operation was performed, but the patient never gained consciousness and he passed away without anyone ever knowing just how he received his injuries.
The deceased was born 32 years ago last April at South Hamilton, and was a son of Homer and Sarah Alderman. Since he was ten years of age he had made his home largely with Chas. J. Smith, and came to this village 17 years ago. He was educated in the district schools, and was married March 29th, 1916, to Mrs. Nettie Ackley of this place. They had since made their home in this village, where Mr. Alderman had made many friends by his quiet and unassuming ways.
He was a member of the First Baptist church, joining in that body by baptism about one year ago, and had since been active in the work of the church. He was also a member of the Earlville lodge, IOOF, having held all the chairs in that lodge, and at the time of his death was a Past Grand and serving as conductor. He was also a member of and president of the Earlville Military band. In all these organizations he will be sadly missed and the sympathy of his associates will go out to the bereaved wife and family.
Besides his wife, he is survived by his parents, three brothers, Henry and Bert of Norwich and Melvin of Earlville, and by four sisters, Mrs. Harry Newkirk and Mrs. Mae Shepardson of Earlville, Mrs. Theron Dennison and Mrs. Kay Sherman of South Hamilton.
The funeral was held Wednesday afternoon at two o'clock from his late home on South Main street, Rev. Paul Monk of the Baptist church officiating. Burial was made in the Earlville cemetery.
The members of the band and Earlville lodge, IOOF, attended in the funeral in a body, and the latter organization had charge of the services at the grave.
