Frank Griffith, the son of Eugene B. and Della Griffith, of West Taylor township, died at 8 o'clock on Monday morning at the Memorial Hospital in Johnstown from tetanus, due to a wound on the palm of the boy's right hand, caused by wadding from a blank cartridge. According to those in a position to know, the Griffith boy was injured a week before lockjaw set in. The young lad was seized with tetanic spasms on Saturday evening and on Sunday the acute symptoms again appeared and the boy was taken to the hospital. Early on Monday morning the convulsions became again evident and lasted until death intervened.
