sad death occurred last Thursday when Madeline,
the bonny little four-year old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Eames of 63
King Street, Simcoe, passed away suddenly.
About 11 o'clock Wednesday
night she was taken suddenly
ill and grew steadily worse til the following noon, when a doctor
was called. Before his arrival the little girl had died.
It is thought that death was due to pneumonia,
The funeral was held on
Friday at 2.30 p.m. to Oakwood Cemetery. The Rev. H. C. Newcombe
officiated and held
a service at the house. Four little girls, playmates of the
deceased, acted as pall bearers.
On the day of the funeral
the morning papers published the sad news of a frightful accident at
Hamilton in which Mrs. Eames' brother, James Dorey, son of Mr. Fred
Dorey of Simcoe, was seriously injured.
He was driving a motor
truck, on which Frank and Edward Colborne were riding on their way
to the east end,, in search of employment, when the truck was struck
by a T. H. & B. locomotive on the Depew street level
Both Colborne boys were
killed -- one instantly. The other had both legs severed and his
side punctured for inches
by a brake rod of the engine which pinned him to the track. When
released he was taken to the General Hospital but died at 2.30 p.m.
James Dorey was seriously
injured but latest advices state that he is recovering.
