Chas. Aldrich Dies Suddenly

This community was shocked Monday when reports were verified that Chas. Aldrich had suddenly expired at his home south of Garfield after an illness of but a few hours. The cause of Mr. Aldrich’s death is reported to have been heart failure, superinduced by an attack of acute indigestion. Charle had gotten up apparently in his usual good health, and gone about the regular routine of chores, and suddenly became ill while milking the cows. He succeeded in getting to the house when he fell prostrate on the floor. Dr. Trammel, of Garfield, was hurriedly summoned and administered aid to him, he rallied and seemingly was much improved when Dr. Trammel left and returned to town. A little later he was seized with another attack and before the children, who were in school in Garfield, could reach their father’s side, he had expired. One girl, Ruby, was in school in Lindsborg, and could not be communicated with until after her father had passed away.
Mr. Aldrich was one of the community’s most popular and well-to-do farmers, and only within the last year or two had completed one of the finest farm homes in this part of the country.
At the time of writing this (Monday night) no plans for the funeral have been made. The family have the genuine sympathy of the entire community in their sorrow.
