Samuel Gardiner of Fair Haven died last Saturday of paralysis, aged thirty years. He formerly lived at Long Branch and he drove to that place on Tuesday of last week to attend a meeting of the Forester's lodge. He started for home at midnight. Wednesday morning he was found unconscious in the road near Fair Haven by Elmer E. Carlisle, head gardener for Edward Kemp. Gardiner's horse had wandered on the sidewalk and was fast in a barbed wire fence. Mr. Gardiner was lying near the wagon. He was carried to Dr. A. A. Armstrong's and an examination proved that his entire right side was paralyzed. He died on Saturday without having regained consciousness.

Mr. Gardiner was the son of Maitland Gardiner of Fair Haven. He leaves a wife and two small children. The funeral was held yesterday at one o'clock and was conducted by Rev. F. B. Crozier. The Long Branch Foresters had charge of the service. The body was buried at Long Branch.
