Geo. A. Morden of Middleton, a Casualty

Delhi , May 19 -- Word was received on Friday that Bombardier George Morden had been severely gassed in a recent engagement, and was now in hospital.

Great concern will be felt over George's condition until news of his recovery reaches us, as George was the first man to go from this locality.

He enlisted with the Aylmer Battery. The whole community joins in wishing him a speedy recovery.
