Charles Garlett, prominent resident of Beamsville for many years, was almost instantly killed, when struck by a motor vehicle, driven by Wendall High, also of Beamsville, in front of the Chas. Prudhomme office, at the corner of King and Queen Streets, in Beamsville, at 5:30 on Wednesday afternoon. He was attended by Dr. C.W. Elmore and died in the ambulance on the way to hospital. Deceased was for a great many years superintendent of the nursery farms of E.D. Smith and Sons, in the Beamsville district. He was several times Reeve of Beamsville and was Warden of Lincoln in 1920. In later life he was an Inspector for the Department of Highways up until his retirement a few years ago. He was a staunch conservative. His wife predeceased him some years ago and since that time he has been making his home with his daughter and son-in-law, Village Clerk Harry N. Reid. A grandson Ralph Reid, former Peach Bud Hockey star graduated as a Pilot Officer in the R.C.A.F. last week. A son Charles lives in Detroit. He was 74 years of age.
