The funeral of Wallace McQueen of Oxford, Michigan is being held at the Port Dover cemetery this afternoon. The body arrives here on the 1:30 Wabash express.

Mr. McQueen lived in Simcoe for a long time, and kept the hotel situated were Mrs. John Sharp's house now is. He left Simcoe in the early 1890s and began practice as a veterinary on Oxford.

He is survived by his widow, who was formerly Miss Sarah A. Ryerse. There were no children of the marriage.

Mr. McQueen, who was 72 years of age, was a member of Simcoe Masonic and Oddfellows Lodges. The Masonic fraternity has charge of the last rites.

Deceased was a brother of the late Alexander McQueen of Simcoe, and was therefore an uncle of Mrs. Percy Kendall and Miss Essie McQueen of Simcoe, and Bruce McQueen of Woodhouse.
