Boy dies after tooth extraction

Cassius Everts, 17, son of William V. Everts of Athol, died at his home Dec. 15, 1911 after a brief illness of blood poisoning following the extraction of a tooth.

The boy had been bothered with an aching molar and came to Warrensburgh about ten days before his death and had it extracted.

There was nothing unusual about the operation but the soreness of the gum did not seem to subdue as quickly as expected but the young man was able to be out and about to do his usual duties at his father’s farm. Finally an abscess formed on the boy’s face and Dr. Allen Parker was called to see him. The patient’s condition, however, rapidly became worse and blood poisoning developed causing severe suffering and pain until the end of his life finally came.

Cassius Everts was a close companion of his father, always at home, cheerful and happy. He was a dutiful son. Besides his parents, he is survived by two sisters, Grace and Marjorie Everts. Bearers were John and George Lanfear, James Dow and Basil Gallup. Burial was in the Baker Cemetery.

Violent racist ‘prank’ punished

Patrick O’Rourke of Glens Falls has some original ideas regarding the nature of a joke. One night recently, Pat had a good “bun” on and while passing through the Glens Falls “ghetto” was seized with a fit of humor which prompted him to pull the whiskers of Samuel Cohen and smash him in the head with a stone. Cohen failed to see the joke and shouted for help.

The residents responded to a man and Pat said he thought there was “a riot after him.” In the pursuit, Maurice Cohan, son of the assaulted Hebrew, fell and broke a leg.
