Our quiet village has been
visited by the angel of death this past week, summoning home a
highly respected old lady in the person of Mrs. D. Merritt.
She had been a great
sufferer for a long time, but bore up with Christian fortitude.
A very large number
attended the last services, which were conducted by Rev.
Mr. Sanderson in the Methodist church.
The remains were laid to
rest in the village cemetery, that painful duty being performed by
Messrs. O. Robertson,
R. Green, G. Bennett, W. Gray, I. Milmine and L. Silverthorne.
The many friends of Mr.
Merritt and family will extend their sympathies to them in this,
their greatest affliction.
