1895 - Sons Saved from Drowning


Two sons of John Baker went skating at Woodbury Village, Sunday and broke through the ice in ten feet of water. They would have drowned but for the bravery and presence of mind of Henry Young and another young man, who were nearby. Mr. Young and his friends procured rails, and after some lively and dangerous work brought the two lads safely ashore.

Albert Baker's Condition.
Wounded Boy Suffering Much Pain, and Case Still Serious

The condition of Albert Baker, the boy shot by C. T. Aldrich, Jr., Saturday, is still serious. He had a bad night Saturday night, as reported by Dr. Cronin. The wound is very painful and his nervous system is completely shattered. Edward Fallon, who was one of the mill hands that held Aldrich for a few moments when Baker was trying to get away, will be a very important witness at the trial, Wednesday. He has left the employ of Aldrich. He said: 'I do not care to work for a man that would shoot a boy in that way.' He says that Aldrich fired the shot that struck the boy, when the latter was running. The boy's parents are determined to push the case in court.
