KILLED BY FOLDING BED.
Dr. A. B. Allyn of Chardon Died as a Result of a Peculiar Accident in Cleveland
    
The closing of a folding bed resulted in the death of Dr. A. B. Allyn, one of the best known physicians of Geauga County.  For many years Dr. Allyn practiced in Thompson, and then more recently in Chardon, where he was the physician in charge at the Chardon sanitarium.
     About two months ago Dr. Allyn suffered so severely from a nervous complaint that he came to this city for treatment and with his wife and son took apartments at the residence of Dr. Arthur O'Leary at No. 601 Scovill avenue.  He was treated by Drs. G. J. Jones and J. Richey Horner, and remained in bed a large portion of the time.
     The rooms occupied by Dr. and Mrs. Allyn contained a large folding bed, which was set near to the wall and behind which was a trunk.  The head of the bed was fashioned into a very heavy wardrobe.
     Last Saturday Mrs. Allyn desired to remove something from this wardrobe, and in order to do so it was necessary to pull the bed a short distance from the trunk.  Dr. Allyn lay in the bed at the time.  In pulling the bed by the top the heavy wardrobe in some way fell and came down upon the doctor.  Mrs. Allyn endeavored to hold it, but it was so heavy that she found this impossible, and called to Mrs. O'Leary.  Both women tried to raise it, but could do nothing more than hold it up a trifle and call for help.  Assistance arrived and the wardrobe was lifted off Dr. Allyn.  In falling it had so caught the doctor's head as to force it down upon his breast, thus causing a concussion of the spinal cord near the base of the brain.
     Drs. El J. Wunderlich and W. T. Miller were called and examined the patient, but could find no trace of a fracture of any of the bones.  The injury was such, however, that it soon produced an inflammation of the spinal cord, which spread upwards and affected the brain, causing paralysis of all the muscles except those of the head.  The patient seemed to improve, but Sunday night he lapsed into unconsciousness, and died Monday morning.
     The remains were taken to Chardon for interment.
     Dr. Allyn was forty five years old, and a graduate of the homeopathic medical college at Ann Arbor.  He was n old resident of Geauga county and well known there.  Besides a widow, he leaes two sons and a daughter, Wilfred Allyn, a son of Dr. Allyn,  is now attending the Cleveland Homeopathic college.
