      Farmer Accidentally Falls Into Well and Is Drowned
      Adolph Schroeder, Well Known Upper Mountain Road Resident, Believed to Have Been Seized with Dizzy Spell; Straw Hat Leads to Discovery of Body
      Believed to have been seized with a dizzy spell, Adolph Schroeder, 54, fell into a well on his farm on the Upper Mountain road, a short distance west of the Baker Hill, early yesterday afternoon, and drowned. It was not until several hours later that the fate of the man was learned. The discovery of his straw hat, floating on the surface of the water in the well, led to the location of his body. Following lunch yesterday, several farmhands, employed by Mr. Schroeder, left for the fields on the farm to resume work. Their employer promised to follow as soon as he watered the horses to be used in working the crops. When several hours passed and Mr. Schroeder failed to appear, search was instituted for him. With the location of the body, Coroner J. E. Helwig was summoned. The sheriff's office in Lockport was notified and deputies were detailed to take the body from the well. Mr. Schroeder's watch stopped at 12:45 o'clock, indicating that he fell into the well at that time. Dr. Helwig had the body removed to Pike's mortuary in Sanborn to be prepared for burial. Mr. Schroeder was one of the best known farmers on the Upper Mountain road. He is survived by a daughter, Margaret, at home. Mr. Schroeder lived with a brother, John, besides his daughter. Others surviving are a brother, Charles, of Byron; two sisters, Mrs. Rose Broker of North Tonawanda and Mrs. Irene Mellenthine of Lewiston and his stepmother, Mrs. Paul Schroeder of Niagara Falls.

      Farmer Drowned in I5-foot WeIl
      Daughter and Neighbor Discover Lockport Tragedy.
      LOCKPORT - Adolph Schrader, 58-year-old farmer, of the Upper Mountain road, six miles west of Lockport, was drowned in an open well on his farm yesterday afternoon. The tragedy was discovered by his daughter, Margaret, and a neighbor, Walter Baker, who began a search for him when he failed to appear at the Baker farm nearby to keep an appointment to take in wheat. Sheriff's Deputies George Ray and James Duffy, who investigated, said that they learned that Schrader was subject to dizzy spells and probably fell into the well accidentally. The daughter and Baker found his hat beside the well and the deputies recovered the body with grappling irons from five feet of water in the bottom of the 15 foot well. Dr. Jacob E. Helwig, North Tonawanda, coroner, Sent the body to Pike's mortuary at Sanborn. Besides his daughter, Mr. Schrader is survived by two brothers, John, of the Upper Mountain road, and Charles, of Byron; two sisters, Rose Broker (sic), of North Tonawanda, and Irene Millinthine (sic), of the Town of Lewiston, and his step-mother, Mrs. Pauline Schrader , of Niagara Falls.
