ACCIDENTAL DEATH AT MORRIS

Dennis Aldrich has for a number of
years been almost helpless from paralysis,
able only to be about with the
greatest of difficulty and unable to help
himself if, as he sometimes did, he fell
down while trying to walk about. Last
Friday alter breakfast he went to the
door and looking out remarked that he
thought if was going to be a good day
and that Carey, his son, who ran the
farm, would probably get his potatoes
planted. Mrs. Aldrich, to whom he was
speaking, then stepped out of the room,
but returned at once. Her husband not
being in sight, she said, to her daughter
Esther, who had come home Wednesday
from the Albany College, that perhaps
she better step out and see if her
father, was all right. This she did, and
not seeing him about the yard passed
on to the barn; not finding him there she
was returning to the house and passing
the water-tub to her horror saw her
father lying in it. She hurriedly took
hold of him and succeeded in getting
him up, but saw that he was dead.

He lay on the bottom of the tub
with one hand thrust out ahead and
the other reaching up grasping his cane
which he always carried with him. There
were bruises on his head. These things
would seem to indicate that Mr. Aldrich
accidentally fell as he was passing, closeby
the tub and pitched in, being entirely
helpless to save himself from a
fall when once he lost his balance.

Dennis Aldrich was the youngest son.
of Job Aldrich, and was born and always
lived on the farm where he died.
His age was sixty-live years, and he
leaves a widow, Luella Carey Aldrich,
son, Carey, and a daughter,
Esther. As already stated he had long,
been an invalid and the sympathy of all
his friends, has ever been extended to
him. Mr. Aldrich was a member of
the Baptist church ever since young
manhood, and his funeral was conducted
by his pastor, the Rev. E. A.
Colbeck, Sunday afternoon.
