    Fatal Accident at Chailey Workhouse: Within two days of his ninetieth birthday, Elam Page, an inmate of Chailey Workhouse, has passed away as a result of an accident. Deceased who got about with the aid of crutches, slipped on December 30th, and falling rather heavily. he fractured his leg above the knee joint. Page was attended by Mr. F. Gravely, who successfully set the limb, but deceased proved a troublesome patient and persisted in pulling off the splints. The simple fracture developed into a compound fracture, and the aged man succumbed to his injury on Saturday. The coroner for East Sussex (Mr. G.Vere Benson) held an inquest at the Workhouse on Wednesday afternoon, Mr. Thetford being chosen foreman of the jury. Mr. E.G. Manning (master of the workhouse) gave evidence that Page had been an immate about nine years, having been transferred from the old Lewes Workhouse. He belonged to Southover, Lewes. and was formerly a prison warder. He had also been in the police force. Deceased was a widower and had no children living. His only relative, witness understood, was a sister who was 93 years of age, and lived in Framfield. Nurse Fuller attributed Page's accident to his crutch slipping, and stated that he was a rather troublesome patient. He took off the splints and bandages and would not keep his leg in position. Medical evidence was given by Mr. F. Gravely, who stated that by the deceased's interference with the splints he made a simple fracture into a compound one, which was much more serious, and this ultimately caused death. A verdict was returned accordingly.
