North Clarendon Man Thrown From Carriage-Skull Fractured.
Rutland Dec.23.--Simon Gould was probably fatally injured this afternoon shortly
after three o'clock when was thrown head first out of a carriage in which he was
driving with his brother, William Gould, at the entrance to the drive to his home
in North Clarendon, a suburb of this city.The men had been to this city and during
the day had drank more or less liquor so that on the way home neither had charge of
the reins and the horse was making his way as best he could. The animal became
frightened just before they reached the home of Simon Gould and in making the turn the
carriage tipped over and both men were thrown out Simon landed on his head, cutting a
deep gash over his right eye and inflicting other injuries. He was rushed to the Rutland
hospital where an examination disclosed a severe fracture of the skull, William Gould was
only slightly hurt. Simon Gould has a wife and a daughter, two years old.
