purchased of Ansel Perkins a farm just on the western border of this
village upon which he has since lived. In 1873 he erected, in a most
sightly location, an unusually fine residence and it is the Ladd home
which so frequently attracts the attention of strangers in passing
through the town by railroad. Mr. Ladd was a farmer by occupation. He
was a man of deep convictions and of strict integrity and enjoyed the
highest respect and confidence of his townsmen; in his family he was
kindest of husbands and fathers. When the Prohibition party was first

was the nominee of the party for important offices. He is survived by a

Rushville, N. Y. - Mrs. Rhoda Lafler, wife of Earl M. Lafler,
of the town of Gorham, died Wednesday afternoon, January 10, in a
hospital near Oakland, Calif., where she and her husband were visiting
their son, Emory Lafler. They left their farm home here on December
1st, the second day of the first big storm of the winter, which has
left many of the roads blocked since. Mrs. Lafler had been in poor
health for several months and longed to see her two sons in California,
whom she had not seen since they left here seven years ago. It was
thought that a winter in California might improve her health. She made
the trip there quite comfortably but was taken worse on Christmas day
and failed to rally. Mrs. Lafler was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Ambrose Harrison, and had always lived in this vicinity. On August 10,
1904, she married Earl M. Lafler, also a lifelong resident of this

Frank Lagino, an Italian, 54 years of age, who is employed as a
laborer by Mrs. S. K. Nester, met an instant death last night shortly
before 12 o'clock, by falling down stairs at his lodgings, No. 38 State
street. After pitching backward down the stairs, he struck his head on
the tenth step from the top, breaking his neck. From a hurried
examination of the facts this morning Coroner George S. Flint is of the
opinion that Lagino met his death as a result of an accident, although
Mr. Flint will hold an inquest either on Saturday or Monday next to
inquire more closely in the case. At the time that the accident
occurred Lagino either was about to retire for the night or had been in
bed for a short time and had arisen for some purpose. In passing
through the hall, he happened to get too near the top of the stairs and
pitched headlong down the flight. The stairs in the house are rather
steep and descend between two smooth walls. Toward the bottom of the
flight there is a sharp turn to the level of the lower hall floor. In
falling Lagino hit the first step on the turn and the force of his head
striking the step was sufficient to break off the portion of the tread
board where it protruded over the riser. The noise caused by his fall
was sufficient to arouse the entire household. Leonard Pasafume, who
lived in the house and with whom Lagino boarded, rushed to the hall, as
also died Lagino's brother, who had retired before him. They carried
the body of the man to a couch nearby and at a few minutes before 12
o'clock they telephoned to Dr. C. W. Grove. When the physician arrived
at the house, the man was dead and Dr. Grove at once notified Coroner
Flint. The Coroner arrived at the house at 12:30 o'clock and was
accompanied by Night Captain Merry. Together they made an examination
of the house and questioned the occupants as to how the accident
occurred. At first they were inclined to believe that there might have
been foul play and that possibly Lagino had been pushed down the
stairs. But from the attitude of the occupants of the house and all of
the circumstances they concluded that Lagino met his death as a result
of an accident. After reviewing the remains, Coroner Flint notified the
undertaking firm of Kennedy and Kennedy and the body was removed to
their undertaking rooms. As it was impossible to secure a connected
story of the occurrence from the occupants of the house at the time of
his early morning visit, Coroner Flint decided to hold an inquest
either on Saturday or Monday, in order that the exact facts may be

Walter Laidlaw - We have referred to the serious illness of Mr.
Walter Laidlaw; the disease, or rather the wearing out of his bodily
organism at four-score years, culminated in his death last Saturday
evening. He was an old-time resident of Geneva where he reared a large
family who have become useful and honored men and women. He was a Scot
by birth, and evidenced all a Scotchman's tenacity of principle, of
purpose and of religion as a "dissenter." He was a faithful member and
attendant upon the services of the old Associate Reformed church, so
long as it had a place for and maintained public worship, and later on
through life was equally constant in religious duties and in identity
with another branch of the Church militant. His daily walk and
conversation were consistent with his Christian professions. The
community mourns him as a good man lost to earth, but realizing that
its loss is his eternal gain. Deceased was buried in Glenwood last

George M. Lane died at the home
of his sister, Helen M. Lane, in Farmington, on Friday last. The
funeral was held on Monday; the interment was at Boughton Hill. Mr.
Lane was born in Farmington about fifty-eight years ago; his boyhood
was spent in that town and his early education was obtained at the old
stone school house in Dist. No. 5. He was ambitious to attain to
something higher than mere manual labor and by patient, unremitting
industry, he succeeded in obtaining an academic education and commenced
teaching school in this vicinity at a very early age. His success in
this vocation led him to try his fortune in the state of Louisiana
where he taught many years and attained a wide reputation as an
educator in that state. After several years
work in the schools he studied law and was admitted to practice, but
he always strove for higher attainments and was admitted to practice in
the United States Court where he soon built up a very lucrative
practice. He was in the south during the war and experienced many of
and hardships incident to those times; although surrounded by rebels
and in a measure connected with them in business and social life, he
never renounced his allegiance to the stars and stripes which his
father gallantly fought to defend in 1812-15. After the war his
business increased and overwork brought on several severe attacks of
which finally compelled him to give up business and return north
to spend his days with his mother and devoted sister. It soon became
evident that his nervous system would never recover and for several
he has been gradually failing. The funeral services were conducted by
Rev. John Cline who paid a glowing tribute to the talents and
attainments of the deceased and the devotion of his sister who has so
patiently cared for him during the past few years.
