Obituary

LAID TO REST This week it becomes our painful duty to announce the death of Isabella Maud, the daughter of Mr. Wm Hall, of this place, after six months illness from that horrid disease, consumption, passed away on Monday morning, at the early age of 15 years, 4 months and 18 days. Her disease was the result of a cold contracted during last winter which settled on her lungs and ultimately caused her death. Her presence in the high school, where she was an especial favourite with teachers and pupils alike, will be greatly missed. During her illness, Miss Hall bore her sufferings with the greatest fortitude for one so young and met death with that tranquil spirit which must necessarily be the result of a life of which only the morning was past, that part was well spent. The funeral services were conducted in the Presbyterian church here by Rev. D. McLaren after which the remains were conveyed to the Martintown Cemetery where they were laid beside those of her sister, Ethel Alvina, whose death was announced in last week's issue. The pallbearers were Messrs. Geo. McKinnon, Bob Lawrence, Dan Dotman(?), John McFarlane, Joe McLennan, and A.A. McLennan. The News in conjunction with the rest of the community extends its warmest sympathy to Mr. and Mrs. Hall in their sad doubly affliction. ~obituary[3]
