Obituary

PETER PARENT KILLED

Peter Parent of East Dorset, employed by the Vermont Marble Company at Center Rutland as a helper, was struck by a snow plow attached to the front of an engine at about 3 o'clock Wednesday afternoon, and so badly injured that he died at 6:45 Wednesday night. How it happened to be struck by the plow is unknown, no one having being found who saw the accident, which occurred just at the side of the company office. It is understood that the man is very deaf, and this may account for the accident.

Mr. Parent was 62 years of age. and had been employed by the Vermont Marble Company at Center Rutland only since Tuesday morning. He leaves a wife and one daughter, who reside in East Dorset, and one son who is employed in Tinmouth.
