Eleazer Kendall did at his home three miles east of here Monday morning from the effects of a kick by a colt. Saturday afternoon he went into the stall. The animal crowded him, when he slapped it with his hand to make it stand around. The colt kicked out viciously and landed one foot on his ribs, breaking two of them and driving the broken bones onto the lung. Mr. Kendall was 79 years old. He was a veteran of the war, going out from Bristol with company G, 14th Vermont volunteers. He was a member of the Methodist church, and William P. Russell post. G. A. R. He is survived by a widow and three children, Homer Kendall, who lives here, Mrs. E. Hulbert of Waltham and George Kendall of Worcester, Mass. The funeral will be held Wednesday morning at 11 o’clock.
