HARMAN, Alva G.

G. Harman, traveling salesman for the J. C. Orrick & Son Co., wholesale grocers, this city, was found unconscious under the trestling of the George's Creek and Cumberland Railroad, back of the plant of the Cumberland Ice Co., yesterday morning, about 9 o'clock. He was removed to the Western Md. Hospital where he died last night without regaining consciousness. It is thought Harman wandered in that direction and fell from the trestling and was stunned. His body does not show any injury other than the scratches on the knees and it is though death was due to exposure, the man having evidently laid out all night in the freezing atmosphere. Drs. Thomas W. Koon and William L. Burns attended Harman at the hospital. There were no marks at all on the head, and if there were any injury it might have been internal. An autopsy, which may be held today, would disclose this. Harman was a man of about 28 or 30 years and sturdy build. He came from Harman, W. Va., which was named for his family. He was unmarried and had a room at the Central Young Mens Christian Association here. About eight months ago, Harman underwent a serious seize of typhoid fever at the Western Md. hospital and later he sustained a badly injured knee in a runaway in the vicinity of Romney, W. Va., while on the road as a traveling salesman. His territory covered points in W. Va. The body of Mr. Harman is being held at the Stein undertaking rooms and its disposition will not be known until the arrival of his brothers some time today.

Followup

After investigating the circumstances connected with the death Sunday night of Alva G. Harman, aged 28 years, traveling salesman for J. C. Orrick & Son, Coroner William H. Shaw decided yesterday afternoon that an inquest was unnecessary. He gave a certificate of death from injury or exposure. Harman's money nor watch was disturbed, nor a check for $59 which he had endorsed. It is thought he wandered up the railroad tracks Sunday night and fell from a trestling. He was a member of Cumberland Council United Commercial Travelers, in which it is stated he was heavily insured. His brother, W. L. Harman, of Keyser and his sister, a resident of Parsons, W. Va., yesterday took the body over the Western Md. Railway to Harman, W. Va., the old home for interment. 
-Cumb News of 3rd. The remains of A. G. Harman were buried Tuesday at the old home at Macksville, in Pendleton co.

HARRIMAN, Ralph

Ralph Herman(sic: Harriman), 25, of Eckhart, died in Miners Hospital, Frostburg, this morning from internal injuries resulting when the car, driven by A. B. Willison, of Frostburg, plunged over a thirty- foot embankment, about a half mile out of Mt. Savage, while enroute to Frostburg, early yesterday morning. The men were returning from a dance in Mt. Savage. Unexplained circumstances surround the fatal accident. It was at first reported that the Willison machine was struck by another machine, which continued on its way without stopping. Later, Willison told Herman's father, William Herman, that he could not be sure if he had been struck by a passing machine or if his steering gear had broken. Herman, who had recently returned from Akron, is survived by his parents, two brothers, John and James, and by two sisters, Mrs. William Niner and Miss Anna Herman, all of Eckhart. The body was taken to Durst's Undertaking Establishment, Frostburg. The funeral will take place Wednesday afternoon in Eckhart.

 HARRINGTON, Orrie

Orrie Harrington died this morning at 2:30 o'clock at Grant Hospital, Columbus, from acid burns suffered Sunday night when the machine he was driving turned over on the road between Springfield and London. Harrington, who was caught beneath the car, lay unconscious most of the night, and the acid and gasoline leaked over his clothing, burning through the flesh. His body from his shoulders to his knees was covered with burns, the acid burning so deeply that vital organs were affected. No hope was held out for his recovery from the time he was brought to the hospital on Monday morning. He was born in this city June 11, 1889, and was the son of Frank Harrington. He attended the Newark schools and later was employed as chauffeur for A. H. Heisey and was also employed at the different garages in this city. He left Newark about 8 years ago, and at the time of his death was connected with the Ford agency at London. He served eight months abroad as sergeant in the ordinance department of the aviation service. He was a member of the Knights of Pythias lodge of London. Mrs. Harrington, mother of the deceased, died in 1913. Surviving are his father, Frank Harrington, of the Hebron road, and one sister Mrs. Ethel Horchler. His brother-in-law, Harry Horchler, left for Columbus this morning. No arrangements have been made for the funeral, but burial will probably be made in Newark.
