The death occurred at Brantford on Thursday of Isaac Lewis, after a short illness.

The late Mr. Lewis lived here for many years and was a good neighbor and highly respected.

The funeral took place on Sunday at the Methodist Church. A large number attended to pay their last tribute of respect to the departed, and to sympathize with the sorrowing family and friends.

Deceased was a member of the Oddfellows Order, a large number of whom attended in a body.

About 40 members of Waterford Lodge, 
No. 235, I.O.O.F., attended the funeral of the late Isaac Lewis at Windham Centre on Sunday afternoon last and conducted part of the service.

The body arrived by motor from Brantford, where deceased, who was a member of Waterford Lodge, lived, and was conveyed to the Methodist Church at Windham Centre.

A service was held there by Rev. Geo. Morley of Teeterville. The speaker delivered a profound address from the text found in Job 14:14, "If a man die shall he live again?"

Interment took place in the Windham Centre Cemetery. The pall-bearers were Bros. M. Evans, R. C. Kemp, 
John Chambers, Allan Spencer, C. Wilson and T. Sharp.

Many floral offerings and a large crowd of sympathizers bore testimony to the esteem in which the deceased was held.

The late Isaac Lewis is survived by a sorrowing widow, one daugher, 
Mrs. Lorne Defoe [sic], [actually Dafoe] of Windham Centre, and one son, Clarence, of Buffalo, to whom the sincere sympathy of many friends is extended.
