Child Scalded To Death From Fall In Hot Water

Claude R. Alger, age two, the infant son of Mr. and Mrs. Ray Alger of Millwood was burned so badly on Monday evening of last week that he died late Wednesday.

The child was playing with his dog in the house and while his mother left him to secure a bucket of cold water from the stream, he went out to the porch and fell backwards into a pail of hot water left there for washing purposes.

The child was badly scaled but had managed to clamber out of the bucket when his mother found him.

Mrs. Alger took her child to Dr. Smith immediately but in spite of the efforts of both a doctor and nurse, Mrs. Pyne, they were unable to save the child's lie.

He was buried in the family lot at Newport, in Page county where services were conducted by the pastor, the Reverend Sheetz of the Methodist Episcopal Church.

He is survived by his father, mother and one brother- Clarke Courier.

(The deceased infant's parents were formerly of the Mill Creek section, in this county.)
