Died From His Injuries
Mr. Everard R. Todd the Victim of a Lamentable Accident
Without regaining consciousness from the time of the accident, Mr. Everard R. Todd, who fell from a Chevy Chase electric car near the Rock Creek Bridge Wednesday, died at 9:30 oíclock last evening at Garfield Hospital, the direct cause of death being concussion of the brain.

Mr. Todd was document clerk at the Smithsonian Institution and lived with his wife and three young children at a pretty country home on the Pierce Mill Road, between the Chevy Chase and Tenleytown Railroads. He was on his way to the scene of his daily occupation when the lamentable accident occurred. The deceased was a son of Rev. Dr. Todd of this city.

Coroner Hammett viewed the remains today and decided that an inquest was not necessary. The body was later removed to the home of the deceased. The funeral will take place Sunday, but the four and the place of interment have not yet been determined on.

Mr. Everard Toddís Funeral
Impressive Services Held at the Residence and at St. Albanís Church
Funeral services were held at St. Albanís Protestant Episcopal Church, on the Tenleytown Road, yesterday afternoon, over the remains of Mr. Everard R. Todd of the Smithsonian Institution, who was killed by an accident on the Chevy Chase Railroad last Wednesday. Prior to the ceremonies at the church brief religious services were conducted at the late residence of the deceased on Pierce Mill Road, in the presence of the afflicted relatives and a few intimate friends and at the special request of the family Mrs. Bettie Havenner McEwen sang the beautiful hymn, Nearer, My God, to Thee. There were many beautiful floral tributes, on one of which was a card bearing the inscription, Honored in life and followed in death by the affectionate remembrances of his friends in the Smithsonian Institution and the National Museum. Being dead, he yet speaketh.

The services at the house, at the church and at the cemetery were conducted by Rev. Dr. Falls, rector of St. Albanís, assisted by Rev. J. McBride Sterrett, assistant rector of the Church of the Epiphany. During the services at the church the regular choir, assisted by Mrs. McEwen, sang the hymns, Asleep in Jesus and For All the Saints, Who From Their Labors Rest. The latter hymn is usually sung only at the funeral of clergymen, but was interpolated on this occasion because of Mr. Toddís many Christian virtues and his prominence in church work. He was a vestryman of St. Albanís and the other members of the vestry acted as honorary pallbearers. The active pallbearers were Mr. C.C. Lancaster, Mr. William Q. Gresham, Mr. T.S. Newton, Mr. G.L. Norton, Mr. B.S. Minor, William M. Lewin, Mr. W.B. Rochester Jr., Dr. W.S. Bowen and Mr. W.J. Winlock and Mr. Brown of the Smithsonian Institution.

The remains were temporarily placed in a vault at Oak Hill Cemetery.

In addition to the usual burial services at the cemetery, Mrs. McEwen sang, with feeling and good effect, Cardinal Newmanís favorite hymn, Lead, Kindly Light
