Round Plains

On Monday of last week Mr. J. A. Messecar [sic] expired after having suffered a great deal. 

It was hoped that the second surgical operation would relieve the internal trouble with which he afflicted but his constitution, already weakened with the disease, could not withstand the shock.

The funeral services were conducted on Thursday in the Baptist church by his pastor, Rev. Wm. Walker, assisted by Rev. W. H. Haviland and notwithstanding the inclement weather the church was crowded to the doors.

The interment took place in the Free Baptist Cemetery.

Mr. Messecar [sic] was a member of the Canadian Order of Chosen Friends, and six of the brethren of that order were pall bearers, viz: S. L. Squire, W. Lundy, P. Pew, W. Sovereign, R. Merritt and E. Gable.

He leaves an aged mother, a loving wife and seven children to mourn his loss.

Mrs. Messecar [sic] wishes to express her thanks to the many friends who kindly gave assistance during her husband's long and severe illness, and after his death.
