  ALBERT, N. B. May 17 – This village and surrounding districts were shocked when a telegram from Toronto conveyed the news of the death of Adelbert Geldart in hospital in that city following a three months illness.

While employed with the Canadian General Electric Co., of Toronto, about three months ago, he received burns, which eventually caused his death.
