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.

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.

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.

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.
