88 Potter's Field is Practically No More - Waterloo County was the first in the province to establish a County House of Refuge. Today, it is pointed to as a model and since its establishment many delegations from outside places have visited it to secure pointers.

The first person admitted to the House of Refuge - (after it was completed) - then known as the Poor House - Was committed by the Reeve of the Township of Waterloo on June 17th, 1869. His name was James White and he was a laborer and grogger. He died of consumption on the next 18th of July at the age of 55. He found his last resting place in the Potter's field set apart on the property. The first admitted was thus the first to die. In connection with this, one can do no better than quote the words of Wm. Janray, now deceased, who is giving a lecture in Berlin in 1871, said - "the oldest woman to die in the House was a Scotch lady. Her name was Jean Kay, 92 years. She was sent in by Dumfries Township.

The youngest was a foundling known only as Charley. He was but eleven days old. His mother sank quietly into her grave from natural causes.

Little Charlie - he was very little weighing but three pounds, with his clothes on - was left at the farmer's door between Breslau and Fisher's Mills. Eleven days of weary battling with convulsions and the three pounds of forsaken mortality crept into the little grave in the Potter's field, also.

Now there is practically no Potter's Field in connection with the House of Refuge. Nearly every person there is provided for when the end comes and in the case of those who are not, the remains are sent to the School of Anatomy at Toronto to advance the interests of science. But there are now very few such cases from the Waterloo County Home.

119 Mrs. W. H. Bowman, Queen Street, received a telegram this morning announcing the death of her Mother, Mrs. Eliza Date, in Rochester, Minn., on Wednesday evening last. The message was a shock to Mr. and Mrs. Bowman and family, though they knew of Mrs. Date's illness for some time past, they little thought her death would result there from and it was the intention of Mrs. Bowman to go to her bedside should her indisposition take on an acute form. The deceased lady, and her husband formerly resided in Berlin, and she is well remembered for her many acts of kindness and charity. Especially was she ever ready to administer to those in sickness. Her tender hand relieved many an aching brow and her memory will not be soon forgotten by her many friends and admirers in Berlin.

Mrs. Date was buried this afternoon in her Western home and she had reached the good old age of Seventy-eight years. She leaves seven children to mourn her departure. John and Frederick Date, in Seattle; William, in Colorado; Samuel in Rochester, Minn.; Mrs. Zeigler in Grand Fords, Dakota; Mrs. Hendee, St. Charles, Minn; and Mrs. W. H. Bowman of Berlin.1a

136 Thrift store discovery leads to local folk artist

New Hamburg Independent
By Brenda Murray
When Margaret Schmidt found an old painting for $12.50 in a thrift store last month, she wanted to do more than just hang it on her wall. The Kitchener resident wanted to know the story of where her new painting came from.

Aside from our children, very few of us "regular folks" get the opportunity to leave behind a legacy. Artists are the exception. Even long after they're gone, their work lives on....

That means that tracing the history of an obscure portrait by a deceased New Hamburg folk artist called for some determined sleuthing.

Who was Elly of "Elly's Studio," formerly located at 276 Jacob Street, New Hamburg? What was her story? Is she still alive? What other art did she do? These were the questions posed to the New Hamburg Independent by Schmidt after she purchased the pastel portrait of a violinist. The piece is titled "Wisdom" and is dated 1985. There is also a companion portrait of a woman holding a guitar with a white cat on her lap called "Harmony" and also dated 1985.

Talking to long-time residents of Jacob Street, we discovered that the artist was Elly Knuckey (1936-1999) who raised a family at that address and sold her art to an appreciative local community. In addition to pastel portraits, she also painted scenes on steel milk containers, did stenciling, oil paintings, crafts, and restored painted furniture and antiques....1a

____________________________

New Hamburg Independent

This is in response to the article that you published about the local folk artist. I would say that I probably have one of the biggest collections of art work from Elly's Studio in New Hamburg. I am proud to that say that Elly Knuckey was my mother, and not a day goes by that I do not miss her. She was an amazing person. Some people would say that she was eccentric. From her I learned that it is okay to dance to a different tune.

My friends linked the article to my Facebook, I was surprised to see an article on my mother this many years after her passing. But I am happy to see that other people are still getting the joy out of her paintings. Here are some of the answers to the questions that you had.

She started painting at age 11 and took lessons from Mr. Gibb in Galt. He was the one that entered her forest scene into an adult competition, in which she won first prize. In her early 20s she tinted black and white photographs to colour and painted teapots in her spare time. She took a break when she started raising a family and only painted for fun.

It was not until she was faced with raising two kids on her own that she decided that she would try making a living by painting. She started doing restoration work for antique dealers as well as temporary window paintings for Christmas and other occasions. I also thought it was a shame that they had to remove them from the windows.

She did a portrait of me when I was in my early teens and entered into the New Hamburg Fall Fair. Wasn't I surprised when she won first prize (not because of her ability but the subject)! She did the graining work at the grocery store at Doon Heritage Crossroads and some restoration work at Castle Kilbride in Baden.

She started painting things around the house and decided to put them on our front lawn when the Mennonite Relief Sales was on, and to her amazement she sold them all. This was the start of Elly's Studio and the yearly tradition of an Elly's Studio sale on our front lawn. She would start painting things to put out at the Mennonite Relief Sale right after the last sale was over and painted all year to get ready for the following sale. It would amaze me how she could fit all the items that she painted into the front room.

She had customers that would stop in every year. She sold pieces that went to Nova Scotia, USA and Germany. She also did a lot of custom items for people, she would paint pieces that the customer would supply or painted a special picture such as farms, pets, and houses on any item that you wanted.

The question 'what did she paint?' should actually be 'what didn't she paint?'. She gave new life to items that most of us would think are ready to be thrown away. She painted milk cans, pails, frying pans, saws blades, orange rates, any wooden items. She painted everything and anything. She had the ability to look at an item and see what she could do to it. To my complete horror she even painted her car to resemble fine-wood grain. Looking back at it now she did a really good job, but being a teenager at the time I didn't think so. I can tell you I got some looks when I had to drive it into Kitchener to get the muffler fixed.

You are correct that she leaves behind a legacy of folk art, but to anyone that knew her she left more than the legacy. I am so proud of her and everything that she was able to overcome but most of all for being the mother that she was.

139 Police of Kitchener and Waterloo joined forces in an attempt to solve the mysterious disappearance of Mrs. William Pohl, 37, who left her home in Kitchener Sept. 13 and has not been seen since.

Murder Still Unsolved - Mrs. Pohl's Body Found in Thicket

By The Canadian Press -

Kitchener - William Pohl today positively identified the decomposed body of a woman found in a lonely pastureland, as that of his 37 year old wife, Emma, missing since Sept. 13.

Kitchener - the end of the search for Mrs. Emma Pohl lay today within a high-heeled tan shoe. The shoe was on the right foot of the woman's decomposed body, crumpled in a thicket in lonely pastureland five miles southwest of this Waterloo County town. It covered, police were sure, two missing toes, a means of definite identification of Mrs. Pohl, missing since Sept. 13.

There was little doubt last night when a youthful hunter stumbled upon the body that it was that of the 37 year old, twice-married woman whose disappearance has stirred southern Ontario for weeks. Tan shoes Mrs. Pohl was wearing when she left her Kitchener home to collect a $600 debt from her former boyfriend were on the feet. The few clothes remaining on the body were identified as those of Mrs. Pohl.

The announcement was not entirely unexpected in this farm community where for weeks police forces have been concentrated in the search and which for a time puzzled over the disappearance of a second woman, a friend of Mrs. Pohl, who eventually turned up in London, England. But the means of death was startling. The woman had been strangled.

A central figure in the puzzling case is William Stuart, Mrs. Pohl's young and handsome ex-boyfriend held since Oct. 1 on a charge of public mischief in connection with the woman's disappearance. It was from Stuart that Mrs. Pohl was to have collected the $600. What police termed discrepancies in his story of his movements Sept. 13 led to placement of the charge.

In a macabre setting lighted by the headlights of a circle of police cars and flashlights, Stuart, under escort, stood over the body and asserted: "How should I know? I don't know anything about it."

The body was left overnight where it was found, under police guard, to be taken later today to Woodstock for post-mortem examination. But there was little doubt about the woman's death. She had been strangled by a piece of her clothing, the cloth knotted tightly about the throat.

Mrs. Stuart's Reaction - By the Canadian Press - London - Showing little visible emotion, Mrs. John Stuart learned today of the discovery in an Ontario woodland of the strangled body of Mrs. Emma Pohl, the woman her Canadian son once planned to marry.

"That's terrible - I never expected anything like that." She told The Canadian Press. "I thought she would turn up somewhere in the United States. I can't understand it." The 56 year old Mrs. Stuart said in an interview at the home of friends where she is staying in London's East End, the scene of her childhood: "I'll have to get home to Galt somehow. I've written my brother John Windler in Galt asking his advice but haven't heard from him yet. I just haven't got money to get home."2a

171 Hettie Hughes was one in a million Hettie
 
172 Waterloo Region Record
There is a lasting image Val Bock has of her mother Hettie Hughes.

The senior is eagerly leaving her front row seat to join performer Mandy Pantinkin on stage, singing along to a song she didn't know and dancing a few steps to a rhythm she wasn't familiar with.

That was quintessential Hettie, fearless, full of fun and not at all concerned about what anyone else thought.

The woman most famous as the owner of Rockway Restaurant rarely took time off, but when she did, she knew how to have a good time.

"You couldn't keep her down," said Val, who lived with her mother for the past four decades, in a Kitchener house shared with Val's husband, Doug and their three children. It was one big happy family, possibly because Hettie was never one to hang around the house anyway.

Most often Hettie was at Rockway, doing everything from cooking to cleaning to serving.

"She wasn't afraid of hard work," said Val. "She liked what she was doing. She liked the people who came into the restaurant."

In fact, in 2008 when she sold the restaurant at age 85, a celebration of Hettie's career netted five note books filled with well wishes from patrons.

Trudy Weir had been a patron since her teen years. After two children worked in the restaurant, she became a friend. In a written tribute, Trudy recalled that "Hettie was a special lady. She was witty, super intelligent, kind and compassionate. She had a fun sense of humour and was dedicated to Rockway Restaurant, her family, her friends and the community."

To have achieved such success was remarkable, considering Hettie's beginnings as a teenager trying to survive the Second World War in London, England. During the London Blitz, when her father was away long haul trucking, the family's house was bombed and Hettie, the eldest, took it upon herself to find the family a new place to live, leaving a note for her father attached to the front door of what remained of the family home. Everyone in the family, including three younger siblings, had survived.

Hettie was used to taking charge, as a member of the Air Raid Precautions, an organization which distributed gas masks and air raid shelters as well as ensuring the blackout was maintained.

Like most teenage girls, Hettie didn't get much past elementary school. After she married and had Val and Raymond, Hettie's life took an unexpected turn. Raymond fell ill and doctors suggested the family leave the dampness of England for a healthier climate. Luckily, an aunt in Owen Sound offered sponsorship and so, in 1947, they emigrated.

Hettie quickly immersed herself in her new home, living above a laundry where she also worked as well as scrubbing floors, anything to support her family.

Hettie and her husband had a baby in Canada, Chris, but the marriage was starting to crumble. When her husband found a job in Kitchener, the family followed in 1959, but the marriage broke up, her husband became estranged from the family and Hettie was on her own.

In Kitchener, Hettie worked as a bookkeeper at a warehouse. When the owner sold the business, he referred her to work for Sid Stone, owner of Rockway Restaurant on King Street and the nearby Old Castle Inn. When Sid was ready to sell both locations in 1979, Hettie chose Rockway rather than the Castle so she didn't have to deal with liquor licences and late nights.

Rockway became the Hughes' family business with Chris as cook and manager, Val as bookkeeper. Val's husband and her three grandchildren also worked there.

Chris recalled working with her mother, how she would start the day with jokes and stories over morning coffee and how she loved Good Fridays, the busiest day of the year.

"She worked more like a 40-year-old and not her actual age," recalled Chris. "She took pride in everything she did and served."

Son Raymond wasn't a restaurant staffer but his mother did sponsor his vintage-modified racing car hobby and the Kitchener living room barely has an inch of space not filled with trophies, apparently only a portion of the entire collection.

"Mom was always so proud of them," said Val. "We always went (to the races) every Saturday night and we always took neighbourhood kids."

In 1998, the vintage car club presented Hettie with an award for her outstanding contribution.

Hettie also belonged to the Zonta Club of Kitchener-Waterloo and the Sales and Ad Club. In 2003, she received a City of Kitchener award of distinction in business.

Though Hettie refused to spend money on herself or take much vacation there was always time to for musical theatre or Coronation Street. Then there was her odd passion for all things tennis. Val said if there was a match on TV, no one dared interrupt. And, if her idol Andre Agassi was playing, well she was in heaven. An autographed photo of the tennis star graces the living room, a treasured memory derived after a drive to Cincinnati, Ohio to watch Agassi play a single game.

At 83, Hettie finally used a bit of her hard earned money and travelled to England, Paris, and then visited the Caribbean two years later.

The woman who had worked so hard to raise her family alone, who had made such a name for herself as a businesswoman, succumbed to cancer a year ago.

Trudy said "to this day, we have a copy of a Rockway menu posted in our home, in memory of a special person … everyone who met her was blessed by knowing someone so special."

218 'I don't understand,' says sister of slain Cambridge wife

Police have charged a Cambridge man, 60, with second-degree murder in the shooting death of his wife


Hamilton Spectator By Brian Caldwell

CAMBRIDGE Marilyn Ayres can't fathom what happened or why when a single gunshot echoed inside a suburban Cambridge house this week.

She only ever knew its residents to be a loving couple, parents and grandparents who had been together for almost four decades.

Now her sister, Linda Sauve, 63, is dead of a gunshot wound to the head and her brother-in-law, Clark Sauve, 60, is in custody facing a second-degree murder charge.

"I've been crying for two days," Ayres said Tuesday, still trying to come to grips with both the loss and the alleged crime. "I'm in pain. My heart's broken.

"I never saw them fight '97 ever. I only saw good. They were in love, really in love. I don't understand."

The body of Linda Sauve was found in the couple's Rouse Avenue house when police were called to investigate an assault about 2:45 a.m. on Monday.

Clark Sauve was arrested after being assessed at the hospital and made his first court appearance late Monday in a wheelchair and wearing an oxygen tube.

Four years older than her sister in a family of five siblings from Kirkland Lake, Ayres said her brother-in-law's health problems, including poor vision, stem from a head injury from a bad fall in his garage several years ago.

Linda Sauve, she said, had since had to care for her husband in addition to working in the office of a Cambridge family doctor.

"He went funny after that," said Ayres, who also lives in Cambridge. "He couldn't walk in a straight line. He was stumbling."....

276 MRS. JOHN LITTLE.

I was born in Petersburg, Va. When very young, I was taken to Montgomery county. My old master died there, and I remember that all the people were sold. My father and mother were sold together about one mile from me. After a year, they were sold a great distance, and I saw them no more. My mother came to me before she went away, and said, "Good by, be a good girl; I never expect to see you any more."

Then I belonged to Mr. T--N--, the son of my old master. He was pretty good, but his wife, my mistress, beat me like sixty. Here are three scars on my right hand and arm, and one on my forehead, all from wounds inflicted with a broken china plate. My cousin, a man, broke the plate in two pieces, and she said, "Let me see that plate." I handed up the pieces to her, and she threw them down on me: they cut four

Page 225
gashes, and I bled like a butcher. One piece cut into the sinew of the thumb, and made a great knot permanently. The wound had to be sewed up. This long scar over my right eye, was from a blow with a stick of wood. One day she knocked me lifeless with a pair of tongs,--when I came to, she was holding me up, through fright. Some of the neighbors said to her, "Why don't you learn Eliza to sew?" She answered, "I only want to learn her to do my housework, that's all." I can tell figures when I see them, but cannot read or write.

I belonged to them until I got married at the age of sixteen, to Mr. John Little, of Jackson. My master sold me for debt,--he was a man that would drink, and he had to sell me. I was sold to F--T--, a planter and slave-trader, who soon after, at my persuasion, bought Mr. Little.

I was employed in hoeing cotton, a new employment: my hands were badly blistered. "Oh, you must be a great lady," said the overseer, "can't handle the hoe without blistering your hands!" I told him I could not help it. My hands got hard, but I could not stand the sun. The hot sun made me so sick I could not work, and, John says if I had not come away, they would surely have sold me again. There was one weakly woman named Susan, who could not stand the work, and she was sold to Mississippi, away from her husband and son. That's one way of taking care of the sick and weak. That's the way the planters do with a weakly, sickly "nigger,"--they say "he's a dead expense to 'em," and put him off as soon as they can. After Susan was carried off, her husband went to see her: when he came back he received two hundred blows with the paddle.

Page 226
I staid with T--more than a year. A little before I came away, I heard that master was going to give my husband three hundred blows with the paddle. He came home one night with an axe on his shoulder, tired with chopping timber. I had his clothes all packed up, for I knew he would have to go. He came hungry, calculating on his supper,--I told him what was going. I never heard him curse before--he cursed then. Said he, "If any man, white or black, lays his hand on me to-night, I'll put this axe clear through him--clear through him:" and he would have done it, and I would not have tried to hinder him. But there was a visitor at the house, and no one came: he ran away. Next morning, the overseer came for him. The master asked where he was; I could have told him, but would not. My husband came back no more.

When we had made arrangements for leaving, a slave told of us. Not long after, master called to me, "Come here, my girl, come here." I went to him: he tied me by the wrist with a rope. He said, "Oh, my girl, I don't blame you,--you are young, and don't know; it's that d--d infernal son of a--; if I had him here, I'd blow a ball through him this minute." But he was deceived about it: I had put John up to hurrying off.

Then master stood at the great house door, at a loss what to do. There he had Willis, who was to have run away with us, and the man who betrayed us. At last he took us all off about half a mile to a swamp, where old A--need not hear us as he was going to meeting, it being Sunday. He whipped Willis to make him tell where we were going. Willis said, "Ohio State." "What do you want to be free for?

Page 227
G--d--you, what do you know about freedom? Who was going with you?" "Only Jack." G--d--Jack to h--, and you too." While they were whipping Willis, he said, "Oh, master, I'll never run away." "I did n't ask you about that, you d--d son of a--, you." Then they tried to make him tell about a slave girl who had put her child aside: but he knew nothing about that. As soon as they had done whipping him, they put a plough clavis about his ankle to which they attached a chain which was secured about his neck with a horse-lock.

Then they took a rheumatic boy, who had stopped with us, whom I had charged not to tell. They whipped him with the paddle, but he said he was ignorant of it: he bore the whipping, and never betrayed us. Then they questioned him about the girl and the child, as if that boy could know any thing about it! Then came my turn; they whipped me in the same way they did the men. Oh, those slaveholders are a brutish set of people,--the master made a remark to the overseer about my shape. Before striking me, master questioned me about the girl. I denied all knowledge of the affair. I only knew that she had been with child, and that now she was not, but I did not tell them even that. I was ashamed of my situation, they remarking upon me. I had been brought up in the house, and was not used to such coarseness. Then he (master) asked, "Where is Jack?" "I don't know." Said he, "Give her h--, R--." That was his common word. Then they struck me several blows with the paddle. I kept on telling them it was of no use to whip me, as I knew nothing to tell them. No irons were ready for me, and I was put under a guard,--but I was too cunning for him, and joined my husband.

Page 228
My shoes gave out before many days,--then I wore my husband's old shoes till they were used up. Then we came on barefooted all the way to Chicago. My feet were blistered and sore and my ankles swollen; but I had to keep on. There was something behind me driving me on. At the first water we came to I was frightened, as I was not used to the water. It was a swift but shallow stream: my husband crossed over, and I was obliged to follow. At the Ohio Bottoms was a great difficulty,--the water was in some places very deep,--it was black, dirty water. I was scared all but to death: but I had become somewhat used to hardship. If I had seen a white face, I would have run into the river.

By and by, we succeeded in crossing the last one. Then we struck a light at a shingle-getter's shanty, made a fire with the clapboards and dried ourselves. We were merry over our success in getting so far along, and had a good laugh as we burned the boards and part of the shanty itself. I felt afraid at getting into a boat to cross the Ohio River: I had never been in any boat whatever. Now to get on this in the night, frightened me. "John," said I, "don't you think we 'll drown?" "I don't care if we do," said he. We reached Cairo well enough.

We never slept at the same time; while one slept, the other kept watch, day or night. Both of us never slept at one time,--if we had, we would not have reached Canada. One morning, as I was watching by a fire we had made, John sleeping, I saw a dog, and told John. Said he, "'t is some old white man hunting a hog,--however, we had better go from this fire." We went down into a valley and there remained. In the afternoon, an hour before sunset, a white man came

Page 229
suddenly upon us, while we were getting ready for a night's march. I started to run: John stood. The man said, "Stop, there!" But I kept on; his face was so white, that I wanted nothing to do with him. John said, "What did you say?" "Stop, there." John said, "I 'll do no such thing." Then hard language passed between them. The man said, "I 'll have a pack of hounds after you before night." John answered him with an oath to frighten him, "You had better do it, and be off yourself, or I 'll blow a ball through you." The man never had heard a negro swear at him before. They are generally so cowed down, that John's swearing at him, alarmed him more than a bullet from a white man. It showed that he was desperate,--and that was the only reason why he used such language. The man struck spurs to his horse, and went off in a hurry. We followed him, as he went the same way we were going, and kept as close to him as we could: for, if the man got hounds he would start them at the place where he had seen us; and coming back over the same route with hounds, horses, and men, would kill our track, and they could not take us. But we saw no more of the man.

Soon after dark, we came to a lake. We found an old white man there in a shanty, who was caring for a slave that had been shot by his master a few days before. We went in and saw him,--he was an old, gray-headed man. His master had threatened him with a flogging, and he took to the river: just as he reached the water, his master shot him behind. But he got across. He was wounded, and without hat or shoes. In this place we were informed about our route. It was in Kentucky.

While we were stopping at the shanty, a day or two,

Page 230
John went out one evening with the old man, to hunt for provisions. I went to bed. By and by the dogs barked; the door opened, and by the fire I saw five white men. One said, "Who you got here?" "Only my own family." I was afraid, and crept out slyly on my hands and knees, and hid behind an ash-barrel until they were gone.

In a few days we crossed the ferry. Then we went on, and were without provisions, except some corn, which we parched. We met here a runaway slave, who knew the route of the country above us. He was returning to his master, where he had a wife and children.

At Cairo, the gallinippers were so bad, we made a smoke to keep them off. Soon after I heard a bell ring. Said I, "John, somebody's dead." It was a steamboat bell tolling. Presently there she was, a great boat full of white men. We were right on the river's bank, and our fire sent the smoke straight up into the calm. We lay flat on the ground. John read the name--Maria. No one noticed us: after the boat was gone, we had a hearty laugh at our good luck. Thinking there was no more trouble, we did not put out our fire. Presently came a yawl boat: they saw our fire, and hailed, "Boat ashore! boat ashore! runaway niggers! runaway niggers!" We lay close, and the boat kept on. We put out our fire, and went further back from the river, but the musquitoes were so bad, we made another fire. But a man with a gun then came along, looking up into the trees. I scattered the fire to put it out, but it smoked so much the worse. We at last hid in a thicket of briers, where we were almost devoured by musquitoes, for want of a little smoke.

Next day I lay down to sleep, while John kept watch.

Page 231
When I awoke, I told him I had dreamed about a white cow, which still seemed a white woman, and that I feared we would be caught. We were in the woods, in a low, damp place, where there was no bit of a road, and we knew not where the road was. We started to find a road, and then met with a white woman. I reminded John of my dream. "Good evening, good evening," said she. My husband asked if she would sell him some bread: this was to make conversation, so he could inquire the road. "Oh yes, just come to my house, I'll give you some bread." We went to the house, and presently her husband came in. He asked, "Have you got free papers?" John answered, "No." "Where are you travelling to?" "To the upper lakes." "We are not allowed to let a colored man go through here without free papers: if we do, we are liable to a fine of forty dollars." He allowed us to remain all night,--but in the morning we were to go before a squire at Dorrety, and, if we were free, we would go on. This was the woman's arrangement: the man did not seem inclined to stop us. She said, "If we stop you, we shall get fifty dollars apiece for you: that's a--good--deal--of--money,--you know." The man asked John if he had a pistol. John produced one. The man said 't was no harm, he would take care of it for him,--and locked it up. They lived in a little, dirty log hut: they took the bed off the bedstead, and lay down on it close to the door, so that it could not be opened without disturbing him. The man took a nice silver-mounted pistol from a cupboard, loaded it, and placed it where he could reach it in the night. We lay on the bedstead--they on the floor. She was the evil one: she had made the plans. Their name was Smith.

At about three o'clock in the morning, husband

Page 232
aroused me,--"I'm going away from here; I don't value them, now other folks are asleep." We both got up. John spoke roughly, "Mr. Smith! Mr. Smith!" He aroused: "we are unwell, and must pass out,--we 'll be back very soon." Mr. Smith got up very readily, and pulled the bed away a little, so we could slip out. As John passed by the pistol, he put his hand on it, and took it in exchange for his old one. It is a beautiful rifle pistol, percussion lock,--John has been offered fifteen dollars for it. If the man will come here with John's old flint lock, my husband will exchange back, and give him boot. I am very sorry for my friend, Mrs. Smith, that she did not get the hundred dollars to go a shopping with in Dorrety--am much obliged to her for our night's lodging. We went across a small stream, and waited for daylight. Then we went on to Dorrety, and passed through the edge of it, without calling on the squire, as we had not time.

One Sunday morning, being on a prairie where we could see no house--about fifty miles west of Springfield--we ventured to travel by day. We encountered an animal, which we at first supposed to be a dog; but when he came near, we concluded it to be a wolf. He yelped something like a dog: he did not attack us. We went on and crossed a stream, and then we saw three large wood-wolves, sneaking around as if waiting for darkness. As we kept on, the three wolves kept in sight, now on one hand, and now on the other. I felt afraid, expecting they would attack us: but they left us. Afterward we made a fire with elder-stalks, and I undertook to make some corn bread. I got it mixed, and put it on the fire,--when I saw a party of men and boys on horseback, apparently approaching us. I put out the fire; they turned a little away, and did not appear

Page 233
to perceive us: I rekindled the fire, and baked our bread. John managed to keep us well supplied with pies and bread. We used to laugh to think how people would puzzle over who drank the milk and left the pitchers, and who hooked the dough.

I got to be quite hardy--quite used to water and bush-whacking; so that by the time I got to Canada, I could handle an axe, or hoe, or any thing. I felt proud to be able to do it--to help get cleared up, so that we could have a home, and plenty to live on. I now enjoy my life very well--I have nothing to complain of. We have horses and a pleasure-wagon, and I can ride out when and where I please, without a pass. The best of the merchants and clerks pay me as much attention as though I were a white woman: I am as politely accosted as any woman would wish to be.

I have lost two children by death; one little girl is all that is spared to me. She is but four years old. I intend to have her well educated, if the Lord lets us.1a

289 Outrage On A Woman

We have received from a Wellesley correspondent the particulars of an outrage committed upon a Mrs Mary Edmison of that Township, that for shamelessness surpasses anything we have heard of in a long time. It appears that on the evening of the 5th instant, as this woman and her two sons were on their way from her sister's place in Mornington Township to a neighbour's house in Peel, a short distance off, they were attacked by some six or eight-men, most of them disguised, several as females. Her eldest son was knocked down by one of the parties ; the other fled back to his uncle's. The ruffians then attacked the boy's mother, and after abusing her in the most cowardly manner, almost tearing the clothes from her back, set the poor woman on a rail, and having amused themselves by jilting her up and down the road, put her down by the roadside, tied her hands and feet together with a cord, and in that helpless condition left her on the public highway. The poor creature although almost exhausted by the treatment of her inhuman tormentors, contrived to untie the cord with her teeth. She then endeavored to make her way back to her sister's, but had not gone far when she was again overhauled by the scoundrels, who stretched a cord across the road, and winding it around her body, dragged her back and forward until their thirst for amusement was satisfied. The woman made complaint to A. Boomer, Esq., J. P., who at once issued summonses for one Watson, Michael Glass. John McCann, Thomas Edmison. jr., and J Watson, the suspected perpetrators of the outrage, the first three of whom were tried before the magistrate on Saturday last. The evidence against Watson was clear and conclusive. He was ordered to pay a fine of $22 or go to gaol for forty days. The evidence against the other two was not sufficient to convict them, but as it appeared too evident that they were equally guilty with Watson, they were ordered to appear again in eight days. Two of the culpable parties are missing, but we are assured that no effort will be spared to bring them to justice, when we trust to see the guilt bought clearly home to the whole party engaged in this most disgraceful affair. The sole pretence set up for such brutal conduct towards this woman is, that she is occasionally given to drink, and when the worse of liquor is very abusive with her tongue. On the other hand a very respectable witness testified that he had known her for the past fourteen years, during which time she had always borne an unblameable character.Berlin Telegraph.1a

312 Sheehan: Drowned in a Well

Mrs. Sheehan came to her end Tuesday night last, about 7 o'clock, by falling into a well, near the corner of Wellington and Catherine Streets. It appeared from the evidence taken before the Coroner, that she was about to remove to another house, and taken to it, during the day, two pigs. She went in the evening for the purpose them some meat, and had occasion to go to the well, for some water. While stooping down to reach the water, it is thought that she lost her hold and went headfirst into the well. Her Husband, who was in the house, which was only a short distance off, wondering where she was stopping so long, and went in search of her, about half an hour after she left, and found her, with little more than her head under water. The well is only about four feet in depth, and contained about a foot of water. There was not the slightest bruise about the head to show that it had been injured as she fell in. It is difficult to understand, how she was unable to extricate herself from the position in which she was found. The jury returned a verdict of accidental death by drowning.1a

"Leaf by leaf the roses fall,
Drop by drop the spring runs dry;
One by one beyond recall,
Loved ones say farewell and die,
But the roses will bloom again
And the springs will gush anew,
So in Eden's fairer clime,
Brighter scenes we soon shall view." 1a

356 Another Death Scarcely two months ago we gave the sad intelligence of the death of Levi Eaton and a week later of his daughter, Aleina. We are this week pained to chronicle the death of the widow, Susannah Eaton who died on the 16th. She remained in good health just long enough to see her deceased husband's effects disposed of, and to move with 2 of her stepchildren (she being the second wife of Mr. Eaton) to her father-in-law's Mr. Anson Eaton. On the day of moving she complained of illness from which time she grew worse, typhoid fever having assorted its deadly claims.1a

377 Passed Away - In Guelph, about mid-night on Monday last, there passed away Mrs. James Geddes, relict of the late Jas. Geddes, auctioneer, of Galt. A resident of Galt for many years, and one whom to know was to love, the deceased lady had many warm friends in this town and neighborhood who will learn with regret of her death. Kindly memories of the good old lady would lead us to say more; but n the fullness of time she has been called home, and, we feel that the record of a well spent life is a nobler monument than any pen of ours could erect. Mrs. Geddes was in the 79th year of her age, and for the last few years had been quite an invalid. She was the mother of Mr. George Geddes, of Glenmorris, Mr. Wm. A. Geddes, Mrs. Walter Strowgor and Miss Ada Geddes, of Toronto, and Mrs. Wm. Cooper, of Guelph. Her remains were brought to Galt for burial on Wednesday, and in the presence of a few old friends were interred in Trinity Church Cemetery.

380 ALMOST INSTANTLY KILLED

Accident Mars Enjoyment of Fair Day Crowd


Elmira was stunned by its first fatal motor car accident in some years On Monday when Glen Leroy Aberle, 5-year-oid son of Mr. and Mrs . Roy Aberle, was struck down and almost instantly killed by a heavy truck driven by Mr. Arlie Chambers, a Elmira, and owned by Mr. H. E. Haack, Elmira fruit and confectionery merchant. The accident occurred a few feet north of the post office intersection on Arthur Street at 12 o'clock noon on Monday.

The little lad had been at his father's service station, Cities Service, located almost directly across from the post office, where his father was working in the car greasing pit. As fair day is a busy day around the service station the father had decided to have his dinner at work. His two small children, Elaine 4, and Gerald 2, had come down to the post office corner with his lunch box. Instructed never to cross the road alone, the two children were heard by their father calling him. He instructed Glen to go across the road and bring his lunch and to be careful. The little lad went across safely and returned. It was then decided he should go home for his dinner and was going across the second time when the accident happened. Struck by the truck, the boy was terribly injured about the head, two wheels of the truck are said to have passed over his body also indicting severe injuries. Rushed to the office of Drs. MeQuibban and McCullough, little could be done to save the child's life as injuries inflicted had blotted out the little life almost before reaching the office. A terrible fracture of the skull was the direct cause of death.

While the father, Mr. Roy Aberie, did not see the child actually struck, he was one of the first to pick the child from the pavement where a pool of blood had run down to the gutter. Even then the father had little hope for the lad's life. Little Glen Leroy is survived by his parents and a brother and sister, Gerald 2 years, and Elaine 4 years.The funeral will be held today at 2 p. m. from the residence, 23 King Street, to St. Paul's Lutheran Church for service. Interment will take place in Elmira Cemetery. An inquest into the fatal accident has been ordered. for Friday at 2:30 pm. in the town hall. No charges have as yet been laid.

425 The first meeting to examine teachers in this county was held at Freeport in December, 1843. The commissioners present were Dr. Fulsom, James Phin, William Tilt, Jacob Lutz and a Church of England clergyman from Guelph who presided. The candidates for certificates were Amos Adams, Benjamin Burkholder, Nelson Newcombe, Elias Eby and one Lazarus who was then teaching in Berlin. Mr. Lazarus, after glancing around the room and making an estimate of the calibre of the Board, walked out remarking quite audibly that he was not going to be examined by a "set of farmers." The other four received their certificates, the first issued in the county, but Mr. Lazarus received none and had to resign his position in Berlin. For subsequent examinations teachers were obliged to go to Guelph, the then county town of the united counties of Wellington, Waterloo and Grey.1a

429 Lifetimes: A born communicator, Jack Adams was UW's first PR director


Jack Adams was the sort of man who always got things done, efficiently and without a lot of fanfare.

When his daughters, Judith and Catherine, took up figure skating, Jack jumped right in, learned figure skating and helped secure funding for the K-W Skating Club's new rink. When everyone in his Kitchener neighbourhood was fed up with the dirt track in front of their homes, Jack took action which led to the installation of a lovely paved street.....

436 Death of Rev. Thomas Adams - This well-known, kindly, Christian man passed to his rest, in Galt, on Friday last. The deceased was very widely known throughout Ontario, and, we believe, was universally respected for the many excellent traits of his character, and for the zeal with which he worked in the service of the great Master. Deceased was born in Coldford, Gloucester, England, in 1807. In his eighteenth year he became a convert and immediately joined with the Primitive Methodist denomination. At 19 he preached associated with the Primitive Methodist Church, filled various pulpits in England, Ireland and Wales for over 14 years. Then about 1843 he emigrated to Canada, and received an appointment in the old Niagara Circuit. A most useful man, he received appointments to almost every church of his denomination in Ontario, and invariable secured the esteem and affection of his congregations. Thoroughly honest in his convictions, desirous of doing what good laid in his power, his addresses in the pulpit were characterized by vigor, sympathy, and earnestness which won upon his hearers. Many years ago he was appointed to the church in Galt, and it was during his first residence amongst us that his wife - who had been the sharer of much of the hardships of his early Canadian life - died, her remains being interred in Trinity Church Cemetery. After leaving Galt, at the expiry of the term of his appointment, the deceased gentleman revoked, we believe, into the neighborhood of Chatham, were he married the lady whose death we recorded but a few months ago. His labors and age entitled him to superannuation, and on retiring from the active ministry, he decided on settling permanently in Galt. After his retirement he was as active as ever in the discharge of Christian duties, and was eve ready to aid and assist those whom he found in trouble. His end was that of a well spent life. He passed quietly and peacefully away, relying on the mercy of the God whose teachings he had tried to spread, for the benefit of man in the world.

The deceased was buried in Trinity Church Cemetery on Monday last, the pall-bearers being Messrs. Alex Cranston, James Woods, John Habbick, Thomas Rutherford, Wm. Sipes and John Edgar, all old friends and steady workers with him while in life. The services at the house were conducted by Rev. Mr. Bee, of Toronto, Revs. Boyd and Reid, of Brampton, and Rev. J.K. Smith, of Galt. At Trinity Church Canon Hincks red the beautiful service of the church.1a

490 ADRIAN, Dr.-Ing. Habil, Professor Werner K. (Emeritus)-Scholar, inventor, mechanic, teacher, storyteller, jokester, and lover of poetry. Born August 10, 1930, our father Werner Adrian passed suddenly on Saturday, May 10, 2008. He will be dearly missed by his beloved family, his children, Birgitta Adrian Morley and son-in-law, Chris Morley, Felicitas Adrian and son-in-law, Alfredo Ramirez, Patricia Adrian-Hanson and son-in-law, Nicolas Hanson, Dr. Melanie Adrian; his grandchildren, Danielle, Rachel, Nathan and Felix; his former wife, Elisabeth Adrian and his companion, Hildegard Neumann; as well as his sisters, Liesel Adrian and Rosel Strack and his cousins, Herbert Acker and Trudel Strohschnitter. Werner was a loving family man and a well-known and highly respected member of the scientific community throughout Europe and North America. In his passing we continue to pay tribute to a most cherished and revered man.

Our Dad was a scholar. He published extensively and had, at last count, 120 articles in print in technical journals in his field. He had six patents to his name in diverse areas such as infrared photometry, adaption dependent traffic control devices, and antiglare spectacles for nighttime traffic. He was interested in making the roads safer and his research led to recommendations for STV (Small Target Visibility) in roadway lighting.

He, along with Dr. Johan Enzmann, developed the first computer program to calculate roadway luminance which is the design metric used today for roadway lighting design. Roadway tunnel safety was particularly important to him as he felt they were generally incorrectly lit, forcing a driver to enter an apparent black hole, causing unnecessary accidents. To counter this problem, he developed a description of the state of adaptation of observers approaching a tunnel in daytime. His innovation serves as the basis for guidelines for tunnel lighting around the world today. Werner was active in the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IES) for over 25 years and the Commission Internationale de l'Eclairage (CIE) for over 40 years having received the CIE certificate in 2007 and the IES Medal Award (the IES's highest recognition for technical achievement) in 2005.

Werner embarked on extensive research about the aging eye and how this affected our ability to see, especially at night. He further our thinking about disability and discomfort glare when he suggested the Glare Control Mark, the equivalent veiling luminance and TI (threshold increment) metrics. He also developed models for Visual Acuity and Visual performance each contributing to indoor lighting requirements. He was concerned for people who suffered from a disease call retinitis pigmentosa, for which he developed protective aids that would slow or halt the diseases' progress to eventual blindness. Having a father with such strong intellectual drives exposed us kids to many complex ideas early on in our lives and provided us with an environment rich with debate and discussion.

Werner was not just a scholar, he was also an inventor. Most of the 1970s were dedicated to the development of the infrared breath analyzer (known today as the breathalyzer). He was also one of the first to build a 3 dimensional TV, which led him to consult for space technology and large screen TV companies. A creative mind combined with his degrees in electrical engineering made Dad the perfect mechanic. With four daughters and more cars, Dad spent much of his free time underneath the hood, or indeed simply underneath, many cars in his time. In fact he repaired just about any broken electronic device. His professional path as an accomplished teacher was reflected in all areas of his life. He never passed up small moments to teach us kids the names of the stars, how to approach a challenging mathematical calculation, or how to fly a kite.

His life was spent in the university classroom teaching two generations of students the fundamentals of physiological optics, lighting, visual functions, colour and more. But he believed that the world was a classroom and for many years he organized "study tours" to Europe for his students in which they visited optometry related companies and research institutes, as well as various churches, historical sites, and Dad's favourite wineries speckled along the Mosel River.

Our father was a consummate storyteller. He loved sitting with family and friends and recounting anecdotes about his childhood, family or life. His flair in retelling these stories made each and every recount memorable. These moments of storytelling were usually never very serious and perhaps our father was best known for his sense of humour and vast repertoire of jokes, which we started numbering as our own way of making him laugh. We always knew when one was coming because Dad would give himself away with his own laughter before he was able to deliver the punch line with any seriousness.

And finally, our father loved reciting poetry and quoting old German authors. Poetry and linguistic beauty were part of Dad's abiding passions. We cannot remember a day that went by where he did not recite a poem or saying (from memory, no less). It is for this reason that we want to remember our father with love and kindness in a way that is befitting to him Dad, your life reminds us of things worth living for. You accomplished so much and gave it freely; modesty and generosity embodied all your achievements. Even though you often knew best, you seldom said so. You shared with those close to you the meaning and continuity of your life, demonstrating how much you cared. Your gifts gave us a sense of belonging to something greater. Camaraderie, hard work, love, and loyalty are the values that were you.

We will miss your warmth and laughter, ready smile, keen intelligence and generosity. Good journeys Dad… According to our father's explicit wishes, cremation has taken place followed by a private family celebration of his life. A mass will be read in honour of Dr. Werner Adrian on Sunday, May 18, 2008, at 7:30 a.m., by the Order of Discalced Carmelites at the Carmel of St. Joseph, 1127 Carmel-Koch Rd. RR 1, St Agatha, N0B 2L0. We would like to invite all those who shared his friendship to pay tribute to him by raising a nice glass of Riesling in his memory. Those wishing to express their sympathy and condolences are invited to contact the family, by e-mail to Dr. Melanie Adrian ,,,, Birgitta Adrian Morley ..., Felicitas Adrian ..., Patricia Adrian-Hanson....1a

492 From Thomas Adsett, formerly of Northchapel, to Thomas Scutt, his Father in law, Bignor, near Petworth.

September 9th 1832

Dear Father,

I am sorry to be the messenger of bad news: but we are in a land of disappointment: if we go to bed at night, well and hearty, we may not rise in the morning alive. April 11th. Set sail from Portsmouth. Fair wind for some days. Children and Wife quite well, self quite sick, and so I continued for a month. May 19th. Harriet failed with the hooping cough, and continued getting worse: wife and the children quite well, all the way over. June 2, reached Quebec: 7th to Montreal; after a passage of 8 weeks and 1 day; and almost all the way very rough sea. Here we left the Melville, and took the Durham Boats: here we was put hard to it, being exposed to the weather until we reached York. 19th. Reached York: Harriet kept getting worse: we did not stop at York above 5 or 6 hours: next came Hamilton: wife failed in eating: left and came to Waterloo: child very bad; wife quite poorly; and kept getting worse. July 1st Harriet died. 2nd. Wife very bad. 3rd. died. The doctor said, that it was the scarlet fever: the other children all well. Sarah (2½ years old) a gentleman by the name of Chapman, a Carpenter, came and took her, the 7th. Charles (6 years old) is at a Weavers: Emma (7 years old) is at Mr. Tottles, in Dumfries: and are well; and like the place quite well. I get plenty of work, at 5s. York, that is 2s. 3½ of your money, and board. Here is plenty of whisky, at 1s. per quart; here is no beer; and the water is not so good in many places as in England. They live in quite a different way to what they do in the old country; but they live much better. The produce is wheat; oats; winter barley; rice; indian corn; and potatoes; but this is truly the wooden world. If we find so many houses as at Crouch, we should think that we should be in a city: the houses are about half a mile a part. Here is plenty of pheasants; and pigeons; and deer, that will weigh 20 stone; and bears; foxes; wolves; and hares. I can say no more at present. Write to me as soon as possible, and send word how they all are. Direct, Thomas Adsett, Galt, Dumfries, U. Canada, N. America.1a

This has given him an experience which fits him well for his present position as Chief.1a

510 "Carl Ahrens was born in Winfield, near Elora, Ontario. He moved to Berlin, Ontario where he attended school until his father's death in 1875. He later lived in Winnipeg and travelled extensively in the American and Canadian west. Returning to Berlin, he worked as a dyer in a button factory, where he began his mastery of colour. In his early twenties he began to paint from his Toronto studio. His first exhibition was at the Ontario Society of Artists in 1889. In 1891 he was elected associate painter of the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts. He later studied painting and sculpture in New York. From 1900 to 1902, Ahrens lived in New York State where he helped to start the Roycroft pottery. In 1922, after a sojourn of several years in the U.S., he and his family moved back to Toronto, and soon after settled in a farmhouse near Galt, Ontario, which Carl named "Big Trees". Here he painted and taught, often entertaining Homer Watson, a lifelong friend. A childhood bout of tuberculosis in the hip left him an invalid in his later years, although he continued to paint until his death in 1936 at the age of 73"1a

Carl Ahrens, the artist, of Toronto, has taken up his abode at Doon, where he thinks of remaining. He is much improved in health and a corresponding increase of vigor and dash is noticeable in his work. His pictures have been winning much attention of late and a number of them go to the World's Fair [Chicago] In Doon, Mr Ahrens will find a genial comrade in Mr. Homer Watson, and many picturesque spots in that vicinity from which he can draw inspiration for his brush. Mr. Ahrens is one of the best story tellers one could wish to meet.2a

Charles A. Ahrens & Sons
, Slipper Factory, Queen Street, Berlin - When merchants or manufacturers have to build or move to new premises of larger dimensions than those they were occupying, it is a sure sign that their business is prospering. Such is the case with Messrs. Charles A. Ahrens & Sons, who manufacture the finer kinds of slippers. These gentlemen have been established in business over four years and a half and have commanded a large measure of success, so much indeed that they found their present place too small for them, and so they have moved into their new establishment on Queen Street, near the corner of King Street. The new premises are 41x100 feet in dimensions and three stories in height. These will be fitted up with al the latest and most improved machinery specially adapted to their line of manufacture. They make slippers in embroidered velvet, fancy plush, fancy repp, superior repp and fine and common repp, the uppers being imported from Germany. They also manufacture repp foxed and tweed foxed slippers, either machine or hand sewed. The firm give employment to thirty-five skilled hands in their factory, and the indications are that this number will have to be increased in the near future, should business continue to increase at its present rate. The gentlemen are enterprising and progressive citizens, and are held in the highest estimation in the community. Messrs Chas. A. Ahrens & Sons are situated on the third flat, used as factory, and part of second floor as warehouse. Mr. C.A. Ahrens is the proprietor of the building, which is partly occupied by Randall & Ross as a wholesale grocery and liquor business.2a

A life long resident, Mrs. Schneider was held in high respect by all who knew her. Possessing an energetic and generous character, she played a large part in the difficult pioneering days of the founding of the J. M. Schneider Company 55 years ago.

BORN IN KITCHENER

A great deal of the success of the now nationally known meat packing company was due to her untiring efforts and the encouragement she gave her husband in the early days. From a small beginning the business grew rapidly into the universally known firm it is today.

"The best bargain I ever got was when I married" was the statement made by the late Mr. Schneider in 1939, on the occasion of his 80th birthday, when he referred to his success. Mr. Schneider died Feb. 23, 1942. The daughter of the late Charles Ahrens, former city treasurer and founder of Charles A.

HELPED TO BUILD CHURCH

Always prominent in city affairs, one of the greatest pleasures in Mrs. Schneider's life was that which she shared with her husband in the erection of the new edifice by the Church of New Jerusalem, the Church of the Good Shepherd, Queen St. N., which opened in 1935.

A faithful member of the church, Mrs. Schneider was also a member of the Ladies Auxiliary and of the Independent Dorcas Society and the Kitchener Red Cross. She served for a number of years on the Kitchener Orphanage Board when it was located on Charles St. She also accomplished a great deal in the giving of relief, particularly during the depression years.

Surviving are three sons, Charles A., Norman C. and Frederick H., and one daughter, Mrs .W. V. (Emma) Siegner, all of Kitchener. Also surviving are three sisters, Louise Ahrens, Emma Ahrens and Mrs. W. H. (Mary) Halliwell, one brother Herman F. Ahrens, all of Kitchener, and nine grandchildren and four great grandchildren.

Two little girls, relatives of the grooms, dressed in pink silk, acted as flower girls and ribbon bearer. After the service Miss Jean McAllister, sang a beautiful solo. The congratulations being offered, the guests, numbering one hundred partook of a dainty luncheon, which was served on the lawn. The groom's gift to the bride was a pearl crescent. The happy couple left on the evening train, amid showers of rice and good wishes, for a trip to Southampton, Owen Sound and other places. The bride wore a travelling suit of grey with pale blue silk blouse and hat to match. The presents which were numerous and costly show the esteem in which the bride and groom are held.1a

562 MR. GEORGE AITKEN. When Paul, amid the storm of the Mediterranean Sea and the great consternation of the two hundred and seventy-six souls on board the ship with him, took bread and gave thanks to God in presence of them all, and when he had broken it, began to eat. That act, a truly sacramental act, had greater effect on the voyagers than all his preaching; it gave them courage and confidence to do the same." Then were they all of good cheer, and they also took some meat." This illustrates the power of example, the influence that flows out of a small, simple, natural action done in the clear light of God's face; an act in which heaven and earth meet together in proper relationship, and the life of the godly man is full of sacramental action. There is in it all a clear recognition of God, and a blessing of God for His mercies, and an acknowledgment of God's presence that exalts, and purifies, and ennobles the lowliest life. Life in God and with God is always beautiful and worthy and influential. Mr. Aitken s life was of that character. He was born in Alton, near Hawick, Scotland, in the year 1826. He had that supreme privilege in life, a godly upbringing in a strict Presbyterian home; this left its mark on him which was never effaced. He married in Scotland, and came with his family to this country in 1883, from that sweet and lovely spot, so well named, Lilliesleaf. He brought with him to this land all those excellent qualities which belong to the great and influential middle class of Scotland, who are religiously trained, and whose moral culture is of the strictest sort. Indeed, the pure moral character is regarded as the legitimate outcome of a real Christian faith, and no man is sooner discredited there than the man who plays loosely with moral principle. Mr. Aitken was one who exemplified in his life the strength of a scriptural faith, and the sweet composure of a well-grounded confidence in God. In Scotland he was a member of the Established Church at Lilliesleaf, and such was the respect entertained toward him that he was chosen by the congregation to serve them in the office of the Elder, which testified to their appreciation of his godly character, and his consistent religious life. That, in a Presbyterian community, is one of the best degrees a man can attain. He was also Clerk of Session. He was by trade a stonemason, and built his own house here of the grey granite which enters so largely into our enduring structures. He was not spared long to his family and the church here, for he was called home in 1886. But he was long enough with us to leave the impress of his Christian life upon our hearts. He was upright, sedate, serious; a man of consistent godly character; he kept his own way, and minded his own business. His world lay largely within the sphere of his own home, where, if a man does his duty faithfully, he does most for the world at large. His conduct was a course of sacramental acts like that of the great Apostle on the ship in the storm-vexed sea; and the godly influence of his life and his home shone in the character of his son, George, while he lived, and in his daughters, Esther and Margaret, also, who were exemplary Christians and abode in the truth. They were all worthy and honored members of the Church, beloved and respected by all who knew them; and when they died, they died in the faith of their father s Saviour, and in the peace of their father s God. They are there in the New Jerusalem, united and at home for evermore, inheriting the promises.1a

Grandma united with the Mennonite Church at the age of 16 and was a faithful member until death. She and her aged husband lived together for many years, having celebrated their golden anniversary almost 9 years ago. Her sudden death, which came with but little warning perhaps will exaggerate the loneliness which her husband will experience, but as Christians we can always be comforted with the presence of the Lord. In Christ we have the promise and the hope of being at home in joy and peace. Funeral services were held at the home by Pre. Frank Raber and at the Pigeon River Church by Bros.

Mrs. Isabella C. Lackner, relict of the late Frederick G. Lackner, and one of the oldest residents of Hawkesville, passed away at the home of her son, Graham Lackner, in Windsor on Saturday after an illness of only a few days duration.

641 Former Editor Dies

A woman who began working as an assistant social editor and proofreader at the Galt Reporter in 1946, and became one of the first female managing editors in the country, died Friday. Margaret Alderson was "a real live wire", remembers her sister Kathleen Marriott. "She was a vivacious, fun-loving person."

After about seven years at The Reporter, Miss Alderson moved to a number of newspapers in Canada, including papers in Kirkland Lake, Timmins, Sudbury, Barrie, Cornwall and Welland, rising to the post of managing editor. Mrs. Marriott said that at the time her sister first became a managing editor there was only one other woman managing editor in Canada. And a few years later, when the other woman left her job, she was the sole woman in a traditionally male profession. She even travelled to England, where she worked as managing editor at a daily paper for one year. Miss Alderson was originally from Woodstock. But when she retired, Miss Alderson returned to Cambridge, residing at 95 Cambridge St.

646 ALDRICH (Berlin, Ont.) Jan. 26 - A terrible fire which has already resulted in one fatality and through which others may follow, happened here tonight at 7:30. Two terrible explosions in rapid succession frightened people living in the near vicinity of the Gas company's works.

A reporter lives near the scene, and running out of the house, saw the gas works were on fire. The sound of a man's voice shouting "Help! help!" in a frantic voice was heard. Not long after an alarm was sent in, and the firemen were on the scene in quick time, and had streams playing on the flames.
Those who arrived on the scene first found E. Carl Breithaupt, manager of the Gas company and who is also manager of the electric street railway, lying on the low roof of a shed adjoining the burning building. He was terribly burned and bruised about the head and body. He was taken to Dr. G.H. Bowlby's residence and his injuries looked after. He was unconscious. It is feared his back is broken. When the reporter called at the doctor's residence shortly after, he was told that Mr. Breithaupt had recovered consciousness, but that it was not known, whether he would live or not. Near the burning building, a workman employed about the works, named Weller, was found in an unconscious state. He was carried to an adjoining house, where he now lies at this writing, unconscious.

But a horrible discovery awaited the searchers. A smothered cry was heard inside the burning building, and two brave firemen rushed in the teeth of the flames to attempt a rescue. The other firemen turned the hose on them, and by this means they were enabled to get at the imprisoned man, who was lying near the oil tanks, under a heap of burning wood and bricks. Before they got him out, however, he was dead. His hands and feet were literally burned off, and his face was burned beyond recognition. Though he could not be positively recognized, it was known that the poor wretch was William Aldrich, the electrician of the building. He was laid out on the snow, until Suraris' undertaking wagon was brought, when he was taken to the undertaking establishment.

There are different stories as to how the fire originated, but as all those in the building, at the time are dead or unconscious, it can only be a surmise. The general impression prevails, that the three men went into the building where the gas is made and the tanks of oil are kept, in order to make some repairs. One must have had a cigar, and a spark from it evidently dropped into one of the tanks. Immediately the oil must have exploded, and Mr. Breighaupt, and Mr. Weller were thrown outside, while poor Aldrich, less fortunate, was dashed against the stone wall of the building to die horribly, being literally roasted to death. 2a

648 Investigator 'solves' murder but 1972 case remains open.

Today is the 25th anniversary of Waterloo Region's oldest unsolved murder, a crime that police say is no longer a mystery. But police say they don't have enough evidence to charge the man they believe killed Suzanne Aldworth, who turned 16 the day she disappeared. "There is no doubt in my mind he is the killer," former regional homicide detective George Schiestel said. Her killer, police say, was a member of the Henchmen biker gang in Kitchener in the 1970s. The man is now a 50-year-old derelict living in western Canada, but police won't disclose his name or the city where he lives. On Nov. 19, 1972, the Waterloo teen's naked and brutally beaten body was found in a snow-filled ditch beside a country road near St. Agatha. Her death shocked the community. Aldworth died because she resisted the sexual advances of her killer, said Schiestel who, until his retirement last September, headed the Waterloo regional force's homicide branch. The suspect "believed that beating up on a female was OK to do and I think he just went too far," Schiestel said....

In addition to Suzanne Aldworth, there are nine other unsolved murders in Waterloo Region:

June 22, 1984: The body of Kim Fraser, 17, of Kitchener, was found in a swampy area in Waterloo. The cause of her death was never determined.

Sept. 19, 1987: The slaying of Leianne Hunter, a 34-year-old Cambridge mother of three, is back on the books as an unsolved murder after a judge ruled recently that her husband, Russell Hunter, was not guilty of second-degree murder.

Nov. 7, 1988: The body of Pamela Harris, 31, of Guelph was found near a park just south of the Village of Conestogo. She had been stabbed and bludgeoned to death. Police have a suspect.

Dec. 4, 1988: Police are treating the death of Peter Lair in a Kitchener fire as an unsolved homicide because they don't know how the fire started. Lair, 33, from Manitoba,was found dead inside an apartment in a David Street house.

July 14, 1990: Wilfred Schaefer, 85, was found stabbed in his Weber Street apartment and died several weeks later.

Jan. 1, 1991: Persa and Josef Gligor of Kitchener were killed with an axe and hatchet at their Madison Avenue North home.

Jan. 22, 1991: Robert Wagner, 31, of Cambridge died from multiple stab wounds. He was found in his Woodside Avenue apartment. The victim was a small-time drug dealer and police, who have a suspect, believe that may be the key to solving his murder.

March 22, 1991: The beating death of Michael James Lawlor of Cambridge went back to homicide detectives after charges were dropped against two Cambridge men. The 30-year-old man was beaten in front of a Cambridge hotel.

June 22, 1996: Orville "Wayne" Mohan was shot to death at the Portuguese Oriental Sports Club on North Dumfries Township Rd. 17 during a party....1a

_____________


Absalom Shade Allan, one of the leading merchants and citizens of Clifford, and reeve of this village, is a native of Waterloo county, Ontario, and was born near Preston, November 26, 1843. His father, Alexander Allan, was an advocate in the city of Aberdeen, Scotland; married Ann Davidson, sister of the late John Davidson, of Galt; came to Canada in the spring of the year our subject was born; was for several years superintendent of schools for Wellington district, and died in 1855.

Our subject attended the common school at Preston for several years, and afterwards gave four years to study in the grammar school at Elora; finished his education at the normal school, Toronto, where he obtained a first-class certificate, teaching meanwhile one year during this period, at the village of Alma. He then entered as bookkeeper the establishment of J. M. Fraser, of Elora, where he remained four years.

In 1868, Mr. Allan came to Clifford; went into trade as a partner in the firm of Geo.

McDonald and Co., in 1869, afterwards in the firm of Allan and Biggar, and for the last four years has been alone in general merchandise, being a straightforward, popular man.

REMINISCENCES OF EARLY WATERLOO.
By A. S. Allan, of Wellington County.)

The County of Waterloo, in 1842, was a part of the District of Wellington, which was composed of the Counties of Waterloo, Wellington and Grey, and the first meeting of the District Councillors was held in the Court House in Guelph on the 8th day of February, 1842. At that meeting Waterloo Township was represented by Jonathan B. Bowman, who lived near Blair, and by James Cowan, who lived near Galt. During the years 1850 and 1851 the united Council was called the Waterloo County Council, and the latter was the last year in which Waterloo, to which had been added Galt and North Dumfries, met in Guelph. At that meeting Dumfries was represented by Dr. McGeorge as Reeve and Duncan Fergusson as Deputy Reeve. Galt was represented by its Reeve, Absalom Shade. Jacob Hespeler was Reeve of Preston.
My father came to Canada from Scotland in the year 1843 and settled about a mile above Preston on the Berlin Road. It was there that I was born, on the 26th day of November, 1843. We were about a mile from Preston, Blair, Doon, Freeport and the first settlements on the Grand River, to which I am about to refer. At the beginning of the nineteenth century Waterloo was a dense forest. The finding of so many flint arrow heads on the plowed land along the Grand River was evidence of former occupants who not only occupied, but actually owned the land.

The first settlers from Pennsylvania arrived in Waterloo and settled on the banks of the Grand River in 1800, opposite from where the village of Doon now is. One of those early settlers was Joseph Sherk whom, and whose farm, I remember well. He had a cider mill on his farm and it was a great holiday to take the apples and get cider. I have fished up the river as far as the rear of his farm opposite Doon. On the adjoining farm farther up the river lived John Betzner, third son of Samuel Betzner. On his farm high above the river is a small cemetery in which Joseph Sherk, who died in 1855, and others are buried, and there a piece of land has been purchased on which is being built the monument to the early settlers. It is a commanding position. I was privileged to be present there last year when the first sod was turned. I understand that the monument will not be completed this year.

The road past these farms crosses the river toward German Mills. Across the river there is a steep bank, and at one time I remember there was a bridge, but it was carried away and was never rebuilt.

Another of the early settlers that I knew very well was George Clemens who settled, in 1801, about a mile from Preston on the road leading from Preston to Breslau. Adjoining his farm there is a large Mennonite Meeting House, and near it was a cemetery, in which was a school house which Dr. Hodgins, in his History of Education, mentions as being opened in 1809, and as being the first public school built in the county and as being one and a half miles northeast of Preston. It was the first school that I attended, and that is how I knew George Clemens so well.
Between Doon and Blair the river sweeps around to near the road where we lived. On the top of the high bank of the river is an old cemetery in which George Clemens is buried. Near there was a distillery which I saw burn down about seventy- five years ago. On the opposite side of the river there was a large flat and the farm houses were on the Blair road. One spring I saw that flat covered with a raging torrent of ice and water. Just above Blair there was built a new bridge on the railway leading from Preston to Berlin. The torrent undermined one of the abutments, so that route was abandoned, and years later the present route was used from Galt to Berlin on the west side of the river.

On the Grand River about four miles from Kitchener is the village of Freeport, where there was a toll bridge and we knew the place by the name "Toll Bridge." Situated there, was the second school that I attended. At one time our teacher was Isaac Bowman, who, I believe, was head of the Academy that was established there later. The Brickers and Hilkers and others at that time left that neighborhood and went to Port Elgin, on Lake Huron. I remember a minister of the United Brethren, Rev. George Plowman. He was very much respected. The Waterloo Sanitarium is on the bank of the river opposite Freeport. I refrain from saying anything more about Freeport, as you have printed in your last Annual Report such a splendid account of Freeport and its neighborhood by Mr. M. G. Sherk. Many of the people that he mentions I knew fifteen years before his time.

About the year 1833, a number of families came from Aberdeen and settled in the Township of Woolwich, where now is the Village of Winterbourne. One of the families was James Davidson, my grandfather, who afterward went to Galt. Another family, also named Davidson, who lived on an adjoining farm, afterward went to Berlin. George became the first Sheriff of Waterloo, and his brother William became County Treasurer. I remember seeing both of them. Another family nearby was that of Andrew Geddes, who later was Crown Land Agent at Elora. His son John married my aunt, Mary Davidson, and Mrs. Geddes lived for many years in Galt. Another person that I knew long ago, and who was Presbyterian minister at Winterbourne for forty years, was Mr. Hamilton, who is now living in Guelph. Farther down the river was Conestoga. Charles Hendry lived there. His brother, William, became Manager of the Life Insurance Company in the Town of Waterloo, and I learn that Charles managed a fire insurance company. Farther down the river was the Eagle Tannery, owned by John and Sam Wissler. Sam founded the village of Salem, near Elora. I remember Peter N. Tagge, who was a prominent merchant at Bridgeport.

I attended school for some time in Preston. The first schoolhouse was a stone building in the rear of Klotz's Hotel, afterward in the new brick building. In the brick schoolhouse James Baikie was teacher, and he later went to Galt. Jacob Hespeler had a store and the Post Office opposite Klotz's Hotel. Some years afterward, he removed to New Hope and changed the name of that village to Hespeler. I remember the Erbs, Guggisbergs, Jacob Beck (the father of Sir Adam) and his partners, Clare and Wahn, and Dr. Folsom. Cornell's Hotel was where the Kress House now is. The mineral water was not then used as now, and we drank of it as we went to school. There is a brick schoolhouse about a mile south of Freeport, on the hill. It had replaced the old schoolhouse, which was the last one that I attended in Waterloo.

In 1845, Dr. Ryerson reorganized the school system. Upper Canada was composed of twenty-two districts and he appointed a superintendent for each district. My father was appointed for the Wellington District. He was I believe the only one who held the position for the whole district. There were local superintendents or inspectors for some municipalities. At that time there were no schools in the northern part of Wellington or in the County of Grey, but later my father went to Newash, near Owen Sound, where there was then an Indian Village. My father was born in Aberdeen in 1787. He was an M.A. of Marshall College, Aberdeen, studied law for five years and practised for thirty-three years in the City of Aberdeen. In 1852 he was Inspector for Galt, Preston, and the townships of Waterloo and Woolwich. The following year the first meeting of the Board of Public Instruction was held in Berlin. I copy from Dr. Hodgins' Report of the schools in Waterloo:-Members were: the Reverend James Sims, Chairman; Alexander Allan, Secretary; Martin Rudolf, Otto Klotz and James Cavers. In 1852 Otto Klotz was for a time Clerk of Preston, but afterward my father was appointed Clerk and Treasurer. My father died in 1855 and was buried in the cemetery at the old Presbyterian Church on the hill, in which church he was an elder. The church has been taken down, and there is a pergola in which the tombstones of my father and brother are placed. When we drove to Galt we sometimes crossed the river at Blair. We called Blair the covered bridge; the bridge was from end to end covered with a roof like a barn. Some distance from Blair on the river side of the road, the first white inhabitant, named Dodge, had a shack. It is said that Mr. Dickson and Mr. Shade, when exploring Mr. Dickson's purchase in 1816, spent their first night in that shack. I knew well the person who afterward owned the farm, Mr. John Thompson, and they called their farm Cruickston Park. They sold to a Mr. Ashton, and after living for a short time near Roseville, they lived at Rosehill on the Blair Road. Ashton sold the farm to Mr. Wilks, who added more land and built the beautiful residence now owned by Miss Wilks. Ashton lived for a time in Preston, near where the Preston Springs Hotel is now, but before leaving the farm he built an immense barn on the hill and a brewery on the Blair Road.

We drove to Galt on Sundays to church and put up our pony at the Queen's Arms Hotel. Dr. Bayne had left the church on the hill the year I was born. I remember the Rev. Mr. Smith, and after him came the Rev. Hamilton Gibson. I always spent my holidays in Galt with my uncles and aunts, and went with them to Trinity Church. Dr. Boomer afterward married my aunt, Mrs. Shade. I remember some of the young men who assisted Dr. Boomer. There were: Mr. Dumoulin and Mr. Carmichael, both of whom afterward became Bishops; and there was Mr. McKenzie, who married Dr. Boomer's daughter, and lived in Brantford. Of Galt men, I remember Mr. Date, who had the axe factory; Mr. Esterbrook, who went to the U.S. and made the well-known Esterbrook steel pens; Adam Warnock and J. M. Fraser, who kept dry goods and James Warnock, who was in hardware; Mr. Howell, Mr. Spiers, Goldie and McCulloch. I knew Mr. Hugh McCulloch well after I left Waterloo. Dr. Richardson was our family doctor. There were also, Dr. Seagram and his two nephews, Joseph and Edward. The last of the old guard that I knew in Galt were the Hon. James Young and Mr. R. S. Strong.

In an article in one of your Annual Reports I read of the streets of Galt, and I notice that they have named streets after, at least, four of my uncles. Davidson, the article says, was called after John Davidson, who was Postmaster; McKenzie, after William, who built Rosehill on the Blair road; Tassie Street, after Dr. Tassie; and Shade Street, after Absalom Shade, who was born in Pennsylvania in 1793 and came to Galt in 1816. I was eighteen years old when he died.

I remember when Peter Cook was killed. And when the boat went over the dam and several were drowned, one of whom was a cousin and also when my cousin, Absalom Davidson, was drowned. Anyone who wants to know about Galt should read the Hon. James Young's Early History of Galt and Dumfries; and anyone who wishes to know of the early settlement of Waterloo should read "The Trail of the Conestoga," so well written by Miss Mabel Dunham.

I cannot close this article without telling of the high esteem in which my father held the early settlers of Waterloo, whom he knew so well, and for myself I wish to say it had an influence on my own life to be privileged to live, in my boyhood days, among the Mennonite people, who are exemplifying their quiet, consistent and Christian life by what they have done and are doing for their co-religionists from distracted Europe.

682 ALLAN, JOSEPH was a wanderer of whose background little is known.

The Dumfries Reformer of March 10, 1880 had his card:

Dr. Allen, late of Fenelon Falls, has opened an office in Baden, next door to Kraus' Hotel.

The Fenelon Falls Historical Society confirms that he left there in 1880 but gives no arrival date. The Ontario Medical Register lists him in Fenelon Falls 1878 and Harriston in 1882. He was subsequently listed in Osgoode and Gananoque with a possible earlier location in Metcalfe. He was licensed by the Faculty of Physicians and Surgeons, Glasgow, 1843, registered in 1866 in Upper Canada.

Unidentified Newspaper Obituary 
Laura Mary Allemang
 
700 Mrs. Wiffler, whose maiden name was Allemang, had three children; Charles who learned the Waggon Making trade, Catharine who married Gideon Ochs and Elizabeth who never married, but for many years worked as a seam-stress. By that I mean she went to a house where the Ladies had materials they wanted made up into dresses; and her work was, in the main, with the top notch families in the district hereabouts. She made, for instance, most of the gowns for the daughters of Jacob Hespeler, and she kept little bits of pretty-much all the nice materials she worked with and years after when Minnie Ochs, her Niece, was building a crazy patch quilt, Aunt Lizzie brought her down a lot of these patches and went over them telling what dress this was from, that this other patch was of the dress that Miss Hespeler wore to someone's wedding, etc. All that sort of history. It must have made a fine afternoon of it for Minnie.1a

707 65 CONCESSION ST.

Research indicates that the house was built circa 1870 by Fred Allenby, a prominent Galt lawyer. Mr. Allenby retired in 1904 and died in England in 1910. The house passed to his daughter, Ruth, who married William Philip on September 18, 1900. It appears that Ruth and William lived in the house from at least the early 1900's. William was born in Fergus and came to Galt in 1899 as manager of the Galt branch of the Imperial Bank of Canada. William took over as manager of the Galt branch of the Royal Bank of Canada in 1909 and remained there until he retired in February 1934. Ruth died in 1932. William was appointed as a member of the Grand River Conservation Authority in 1934 and served on the commission for 20 years, 18 of them as chairman. He was also a director of the Gore Mutual Insurance Co. from 1933 to 1964, served as president of the company and in 1961 was chairman of the board. He died on April 6, 1964. One report says that Mr. Philip lived in the house until his death at the age of 93. Another source says that he died in Marsdale Manor. Research did not turn up any conclusive evidence either way but the latter information seems more likely since the occupant of the house after the mid-1950's is listed as William A. Philip, one William and Ruth's four sons. William A. lived in the house until 1971 when he sold it to John C. Heutinck, the proprietor of Heutinck Nursing Home, later called Hilltop Manor Nursing Home, 42 Elliott St. The nursing home, is still (2004) listed as the owner of the property. The house appears to have been used as a residence by Mr. Heutinck and his wife, Margaret, until the early to mid-1990's after which it was uninhabited.1a

Lou was short-stop on the Hespeler Ball Team and before the game the kids would take a piece of cedar fence rail to him and with a jack-knife he would trim it down flat like a ruler so we could notch the runs. He would sometimes cut a chunk out of one side instead of leaving both sides the same length and he used to tell us to use the short side to score our runs because Hespeler was not likely to get many runs that day. And that was bad news for us. When Lou threw a man out at first he always got a nice hand from his little friends. Funny, isn't it, how these things stick with one?1a

A Cowardly and Mysterious Murder

A cold-blooded and cowardly murder, the particulars of which are shrouded in mystery, was committed in Detroit, on Saturday nighty, September 22. The victim was a young man named Cornelius Alles, aged about 18 years, a clerk in the central and up-town drug stores of W.H. Prittle & Co. According to the account of several different persons, residents in the neighborhood, there was but one shot fired, and that about 11:20; some say 11:15, others say 11:20, and still others undertake to give the time exactly between those hours. At the hour mentioned the residents of the neighborhood were awakened from their sleep by s pistol shot and several persons came out to ascertain the cause of it. Nothing could be seen in the darkness save a man who was running at a rapid rate and a horse and buggy which was near the scene. An investigation in the direction of the shot disclosed the terrible crime. A young man was found lying as above stated on the walk, still alive, and was found to have been shot in the head. He was unable to speak and died shortly afterward. A large crowd gathered around the dying man, which was the state of affairs found by Patrolman Pramstaller, who was on Second Avenue when he heard the shot fired, when he arrived at the spot. The officer with the aid of a citizen picked the young man up and carried him into the store. The officer spoke to him, but the injured man cold not reply, and died in about five minutes. The persons around him insisted that it was a case of murder, but nobody could give any clue to the perpetrator. The young man's face was covered with blood, which was oozing from a wound on the left side of the head. The officer in picking him up found a key of the store at his side, also a small vial containing what appears to be toothache drops.

Coroner Locks soon after arrived and took charge of the remains which were taken to Undertaker Blakes establishment. City Physician Chaney and Indoor Assistant Cree were notified and came in the city ambulance. They made an examination of the remains and reported that the bullet entered the back of the head, a little to the left and about at the level of the ear. A probe entered it easily three inches taking as slightly upward direction. The bullet wound seemed to indicate a weapon of not large caliber.

The police theory of the murder that Alles was called to fill a prescription, and was shot before he reached the store, which is indicated by the place where the body was found. Suicide was suspected by some, but as no revolver was found, and there were no traces of blood leading from the room upstairs down the stairway, or on the walk, there was no foundation for the suspicion. When Alles was found he was attired in an undershirt, and wore his coat and a straw hat. He had only one sock on, which strengthens the theory that he came down stairs in response to the call. His hat was found lying by his side.

Another theory, somewhat different from the above though based on the same idea, is that the young man came down stairs in response to a call; that he was getting the preparation called for when the visitor, whose design was plunder, seized some articles and ran off; that the young man pursued him, which accounts for his being outside, and that the thief, finding himself hard pressed, fired the fatal shot.

Murder of a Canadian
A Young Man Found Weltering in His Blood at Detroit - No Clue to the Murderer

DETROIT, Sept. 24 - On Saturday night a young Canadian named Cornelius Alles, employed in Prittie & Co.'s drug store, was found lying in his blood on the walk on the east side of the store. The circumstances indicated that a foul murder had been committed. At the hour mentioned the residents of the neighbourhood were awakened by a pistol shot. Several persons came out to ascertain the cause, but nothing could be seen in the darkness save a man, who was running away at a rapid rate, and a horse and buggy which was near the scene. The young man was found lying on the walk still alive, and was found to have been shot in the head. He was unable to speak, and died shortly afterward. His face was covered with blood, which was oozing from a wound on the left side of his head. The police theory of the murder is that Alles was called to fill a prescription and was shot before he reached the store. When Alles was found he was attired in his undershirt, and wore his coat and straw hat. He had only one sock on, which strengthens the theory that he came down stairs in response to a call. The murdered man was about twenty years of age, and had been living in Detroit less than a year. He was a son of Rev. Peter Alles, of Waterloo, Ontario. He was of a quiet disposition and good character. There is no clue as yet to the murderer.3a

729 It is our sad duty to report the death of Mr. Peter Algeier whose serious illness was mentioned last week. Death is supposed to be due to the bursting of a blood vessel in his head, caused by a fall. Alarming symptoms developed only after a day or two had passed, when the patient became drowsy and eventually unconscious, in which stupor he lay for several days until his death. Deceased was a quiet, industrious man and much respected by all who know him. He leaves a wife and four children who have the sympathy of the entire community in their sad bereavement. Mr. Mich. Algeier of Elmira is a brother of the deceased.1a

730 Philip Allgeier was born in Duren, Baden, Germany, in 1827. At the age of twelve he came to Canada with his parents who settled in Woolwich Township, near Hawkesville. In 1? the subject of this sketch was married to Mary Brubacher. In 1865 they settled in North Woolwich, where they experienced some of the hardships of pioneer life in hewing out a home for themselves; but success crowned their efforts, and in their later years they could enjoy the results of their labors in their comfortable home. After they had journeyed together for 43 years, toiling, rejoicing, and sorrowing Mr. Allgeier was called on to mourn the loss of his beloved wife. He remained on the old homestead with his son Peter, enjoying fairly god health until Feb. 11th, when he took sick. He grew gradually weaker until four days afterwards, when he passed peacefully away at the age of 76, leaving two sons and four daughters to mourn the loss of a kind father.

The funeral took place on Wednesday morning, Feb. 18th, to the Floradale Mennonite Cemetery, a large number of friends and relatives paid a last tribute of respect to an honored friend.1a

737 Killer's body found after 6-year hunt

KITCHENER, Ont. (CP) Eighty-six years ago, James Allison was hanged for shooting his employer's wife, whacking her on the head with an axe and burying her in a swamp because his boss denied him a trip to Niagara Falls.

But the memory of the savage 17-year-old who made headlines in 1898 still lives on his remains have been unearthed at the historic Waterloo County Jail.

"I've been looking for him since February, 1978," said a jubilant Connie Giller, assistant solicitor for the Waterloo Region government.

However, regional authorities still have to find the misplaced corpses of two more executed murderers before they can proceed with a plan to use the site for a new regional government headquarters. Under Ontario law, the bodies must be removed before the prison, last used in 1978, can be torn down or renovated.

Still missing are Stoyko Boyeff, a Bulgarian immigrant hanged in 1920 for stoning a Russian immigrant to death, and Reginald White, hanged in 1940 for a double axe murder.

Both Mr. Boyeff and Mr. White were buried in unmarked graves and nobody knows exactly where to look.

Mr. Allison's coffin was found last Thursday by student Kevin Shanahan and, using dental instruments and a small brush, co-workers and supervising archeologists[sic] carefully moved chunks of lime until the fully preserved skeleton was exposed Monday.

Scientists will examine the bones and then have the body buried in a public cemetery
.
Old newspaper accounts said the execution could be seen from the second-floor window. The body was found in an excavation in a small courtyard below one of two possible windows after a dig in the main courtyard failed.1a

Young Murderer Hanged


Berlin, Ontario, Feb. 4 - James Allison was hanged here for the murder of Mrs. Anthony Orr near Galt on August 9th. Allison, a dull-witted lad of 18 years employed on Mrs. Allison's, confessed to having killed Mrs. Orr with an axe while attending to his morning chores, and hiding the body temporarily in a corn patch until he should have an opportunity to carry it to a neighboring swamp. The motive for the murder advanced at the trial was revenge for Mrs. Orr's refusal of his improper attentions, but this Allison in his confession stoutly contradicted.

SIMPERING JIM ALLISON

from Memoirs of a great detective: incidents in the life of John Wilson Murray (1904) compiled by Victor Speer

OVER the hill from Galt, in the county of Waterloo, lies North Dumfries. The road that climbs the hill sweeps round in a big curve on the other side, as it enters the alley. Up a lane, leading from this valley road, stood a little white farmhouse, with a big unpainted barn near by. It was screened from the main road by a clump of trees, although the house stood in open ground with its door fronting on an orchard, its kitchen window opening on a cornfield. The woodpile loomed up at the end of the house nearest the barn. Rain-barrels stood in a row against the house. Milking pans shone in the sunlight. A dog dozed in the lane. Chickens scratched and pecked, and lazily fluffed their feathers and settled in the dust. It was a hot morning August 9th, 1897. Out of the house stepped a woman. She was a beauty. The freshness of girlhood had been supplanted by the charm of full womanhood. Her complexion was pale pink and white. Her big eyes were laughing and merry. A tot toddled after her, yawning drowsily, then turned back indoors. The woman shaded her eyes and looked toward the barn.

The shrill squeals of an angry pig rang out. A man's gruff voice sounded, and then around the corner of the barn came Anthony Orr, the farmer, with a big sow in his waggon.

"Going, Tony?" called the woman.

"Yep!" shouted Tony Orr. "Back in a couple of hours."

He drove away with his nine-year-old son, Norman. A moment later the hired boy, Jim Allison, appeared with two cows, and started them down the lane. They were to go to the Barrie farm near by. The woman watched her husband until the bend in the road hid him from view. She saw the Allison boy in the lane with the cows. She began to sing softly, so as not to disturb her two children '97 Maggie, aged ten, and a-year-old baby, still asleep upstairs. Half an hour passed.

Two days before, a buggy, with an easy-going horse, had come up the lane. A stout, jolly-faced man had alighted, and had hitched his horse and had sat chatting and laughing with the handsome woman. They seemed to know and understand one another well. The man had entered his buggy and gone away, as he had come, alone. He was nowhere in sight on this morning, although he was half expected. The woman had been sitting with dreamy eyes and gentle smile, her hands clasped and lying idly in her lap. She was a pretty picture in the sunlight. Tony Orr had reason to be proud of his wife. There had been gossip of her fondness for travel and for clever companions. There even had been a tale of an elopement and a penitent return to Tony's arms and forgiveness. Neighbours had known of men callers at the white farmhouse. But Tony said all was well, and on the Orr farm that meant all was well. The woman sat still in the sunlight.

Two hours later Tony Orr returned. The farm boy, Jim Allison, was standing at the side gate of the house fence, laughing.

"What's the matter?" asked Orr.

"Oh, nothing," said Allison, laughing all the louder.

"What's the matter?" demanded Orr.

"Oh, nothing," laughed Allison.

"What's up?" roared Orr.

"Your wife's gone," said Allison.

The baby was lying on the front steps. The little girl, Maggie, was sitting on the porch. Orr hurried to the kitchen. The breakfast dishes had not been touched. Orr ran out of the house, and saw Harry Blair, an agricultural implement dealer from Galt, just getting. out of his buggy. Harry Blair was stout and jolly faced.

"My wife's gone!" shouted Orr.

"Gone! Gone where?" exclaimed the disappointed Blair.

Orr and Blair searched for her, and then got into Blair's buggy and drove to Galt, thinking she might have gone with Weldon Sidney Trevelyan, a medical student who was spending the summer in Galt, and who had been calling on her. They found Trevelyan, and he knew nothing of the woman. Orr returned home, and organised a search for his wife. The authorities were notified.

"Many believed there had been an elopement," says Murray. "Mrs. Orr was good-looking, a great favourite with men, but had a reputation. Her maiden name was Emma Borland. Her parents were well-to-do and lived at Bright. She was thirty-seven years old, and was born in Innerkip. She was first married to John Arnott, of Innerkip, who died when she was twenty-two, and three years later she married Anthony Orr, to whom she bore three children. To her children she was a loving, careful mother. To her husband she was said to be an indifferent wife. About two years previous to this she had run away with a hired man named Mulholland, but her husband caught her and her two children at Niagara Falls, and took them home again. Tony Orr was a nervous, excitable man, who had trouble with other men on account of their frequent calls on his wife. A week passed, with no trace of the wife's whereabouts.

"At first, before traces of blood were found, the elopement theory vied with the suicide theory. On the day before Mrs. Orr disappeared, Tony Orr's father was buried. Mrs. Orr attended the funeral, and some of the Orr family treated her coldly. The Orrs were an old family of good standing. On the way home from the funeral Mrs. Orr remarked that 'she was no use and guessed she'd get out of here.' This remark was the basis for the suicide talk.

"I went to the Orr farm. The boy Allison and the medical student Trevelyan had been held in Galt, and Harry Blair, the agricultural implement agent, was under surveillance. I looked the house over, a one and a half story white brick house with a frame kitchen. It was situated in a tract of country that, owing to the swamps and marshes in which it abounds, is most desolate. About two hundred yards from the house was a swamp or marsh of about one hundred acres, and above the wet and rank grass and weeds and thick soil grew almost impenetrable shrubs and trees. In this swamp was an excavation eighteen inches wide and six feet long and eighteen inches deep. It was newly dug, and clearly was an unfinished grave. I visited it in the night, and carefully took from the upturned surface the print of a man's foot, a precise clue to the digger of the grave. In order to get this, I turned back the overturned earth after digging under it so as not to break its surface and destroy the footprint I knew must be there. I took this to my hotel in Galt, unknown to anyone in the affair.

"I returned to the Orr house. A picket fence separated the patch of garden from the corn patch adjoining the house. One of the pickets of this fence was gone. The paling mark was not of long exposure. I saw this was on a line between the house and the swamp, with the corn patch lying between. One of the furrows in this corn patch was raised slightly. John Orr, Tony's brother, poked it with his stick. Six inches beneath the surface lay Mrs. Orr, face down, buried amid the corn within thirty feet of her house. That put an end to elopement or suicide theories. When I saw the half-dug grave in the swamp I knew there had been murder. The grave in the corn patch was but temporary. The murderer intended to hide the body for ever in the swamp.

"Back to Galt I went. Trevelyan proved an absolute alibi. Harry Blair, agitated over the whole affair, was not at the farmhouse when the deed was done, and had nothing to do with it. Tony Orr was five miles away at a neighbour's, with his son and the sow. Allison '97 I went to see this boy. I had his old shoe, and it fitted the footprint by the grave in the swamp. He looked almost a freak. He was about seventeen years old, big for his age, and tremendously stocky in his build. His bow legs were big and muscular. His hands and feet were enormous. His shoulders were broad, his neck was thick, his arms were long and powerful. His features reminded me of the features of a frog. The forehead was low and retreating, and the face was very full at the sides. The hair was brown, cut close, and thc eyes were a greenish brown '97 large, watery eyes, uneasy, shifting, catlike. The mouth was very large, and the lips were full and seemed to simper, giving the face a cat's expression. He walked with a peculiar, rolling motion, as if he would have preferred to be on all fours. He wore heavy, clod shoes, blue jeans, a calico shirt, and a faded, slouch hat pulled well over his eyes.

"I sat down and faced this boy.

"'What do you know of this murder?' I said.

"'Nothing,' he answered, with a grin.

"'Tell me where you were on that morning,' said I.

"'I left Orr's, with two cows, about 7.20,' he said. 'I got to Barrie's farm about eight o'clock, and I left there about 8.50 and got back to Orr's about 9.40. When I got back Mrs. Orr was gone.'

"'How did you know she was gone?'

"'She was not anywhere around,' said the boy.

"'Where is your shot gun?' I asked.

"'Just before I left with the cows, Mrs. Orr asked me to show her the gun, and she asked me how it was used, and I explained it, and then put it back and went on with the cows,' he lied glibly.

"His gun, which always was kept in the house, was found hidden in the hay-mow in the barn. It had been discharged. There were blood-stains on it.

"'Allison,' I said slowly, 'you killed Mrs. Orr.'

"He started up, white as flour, shaking like a man with ague. I waited for his confession. He mumbled, hesitated, and '97 sat down and grinned. For four hours I worked with him. He grinned and lied.

"An idea previously had occurred to me. Allison's father, Alex Allison, was city scavenger of Galt. The father had seen the boy alone. That night the father was followed. It was before the finding of the body was generally known. The father had gone to the swamp to finish, for his son, the half-dug grave. The boy had told him of it.

"'Allison,' I said to the boy, 'your father says you dropped your knife at the grave in the swamp.'

"'No I didn't, for I left it when I went '97'97'

"He stopped. It was on the tip of his tongue trembling, quivering, almost out.

"'That's enough,' I said.

"Some newspapers declaimed against my examination of this boy, and talked of a sweat-box system, and asserted the boy's innocence. In due time their mistake was revealed.

"The evidence was overwhelming when it all was collected. There was no need to use the footprint by the grave. Allison was proved by neighbours and folk on the road to have the exclusive opportunity to do the deed. His blood-stained gun had been fired, and the empty cartridge found in it was one he had taken from a box in the house. John Orr and his family on the next farm had heard a gunshot after Tony left with the sow. Allison had called out Mrs. Orr from the house, shot at her, clubbed her to death, then buried her temporarily in the cornfield, and at night dug the grave in the swamp. He had importuned her, and she refused him, and the murder followed.

"The grand jury found a true bill on November 29th, and Allison's trial followed at once. Chief Justice Meredith presided. H.P. O'Connor, K.C., prosecuted, and J.R. Blake and J.J.H. Weir defended. On Friday, December 3rd, 1897, this seventeen-year-old murderer was found guilty, and was sentenced to be hanged in Berlin gaolyard on Friday, February 4th, 1898. His father fell in an epileptic fit when he heard the verdict.

"Smiling serenely, Jim Allison went up to his death. He mounted the scaffold unaided at eight o'clock on a raw, snowy morning. He shook hands politely with the guards, the hangman, and the minister, waited quietly while the black cap and noose were adjusted, stepped on to the trap at 8, and dropped into eternity.

"Allison had learned to read and write a little in his six months in a cell, and he had scrawled laboriously the following on a piece of paper:

"'I am sorry for my crime. I did it out of ill-will. I hope those whom I wronged will forgive me, and that no one will turn this up to my people. My sentence is just, and I hope God will have mercy on me.'

"He signed this, and read it to them when they came to take him out and hang him."

742 Fall Off Trapeze is Fatal to Girl
Succumbs to Injuries in Hospital After Mishap at Kitchener, Ont.


Kitchener, Ont., May 8 - (CP - While a crowd of more than 1,000 persons looked on in horror, Sue Alric, a young trapeze artist with the Conklin Shows, plunged 80 feet to the ground last night and died in hospital early today without regaining consciousness. An inquest has been ordered by Dr. J.E. Hett, corner, and will be held Monday.

Miss Alric was one of four girl aerialists staging a public exhibition, and was performing a "trick" fall as a final part of the act. Hanging by her knees, she was to drop eight feet, then the rope was to tighten. Miss Alric dropped the eight feet, the rope tightened, then the strands parted about four feet above the crossbar. As the crowd gasped, she clung for a moment to the bar, then plunged to the ground.

Dr. H.F. Leavine, who attended her after she was taken to the hospital, said she appeared to have suffered a fractured spine, head injuries, and lung perforations. J.W. Conkln, owner of the show, said the rope, made of linen, was new when the girls joined the show. It was inspected after every act and was never left out in the rain, he said. In private life Miss Alric was Mrs. Raymond Marian. Her father, Leon Alric, lives n Los Angeles. A new girl is flying north from that city to complete the aerialist troupe.

It was believed he got the scarlet fever from the undertaker who had just come from removing a deceased person who had succombed to the disease.

753 Waterloo woman killed in hiking fall

Waterloo Region Record
By Greg Mercer
WATERLOO \emdash A young Waterloo woman died on New Year's Day after slipping and falling while hiking in the mountains of northern Italy with her fiancée and family.

Chelsea Alvarez, 24, fell more than 150 metres while on a hike with Colin Behenna, the former captain of the OHL's Barrie Colts and ex-forward with the University of Waterloo Warriors men's hockey team.

Alvarez was hiking near the Austrian border at an elevation of about 2,200 metres when she lost her balance. She was killed instantly after falling onto rocks in the valley below, according to Italian media reports.

Friends say her family was also in Italy for the holidays, and her two younger bothers were on the hike when she fell.

The tragedy has rippled through Waterloo's hockey community. Alvarez, an engineering graduate from Conestoga College, played hockey for the St. David's Celtics while in high school and on local rep-level teams.

She was also a server at the St. Louis Bar and Grill in Waterloo's north end for the past five years. The bar was a hub for local hockey coaches and players, and Alvarez's tragic death has brought a wave of grief there.

"We're such a tight, tight group. This has rippled through the entire community," said Gus Bastias, a regular at the bar whose friend owns the restaurant.....

When the pair left Waterloo for Italy a few months ago, friends threw a going away party at the Duke of Wellington pub. They encouraged the young couple to travel and explore as much of Europe as they began their young lives together.

"She moved to Europe with him, and was ready to be a hockey wife," Bastias said. "They had their whole lives in front of them, and they were just getting started. I still can't believe she's gone."

She and her first husband remained in Blenheim Township until the spring of 1819, when they moved into South Dumfries Township, to the farm owned by Leonard Sovereign. Mr. Brockby Ames was a farmer all his days, with the exception of the period during which he was engaged in fighting his country's battles. He took part in the Battle of Lundy's Lane, the most stubborn fight of the War of 1812-1815, and received a wound that ultimately caused his death. He was also present at the engagement of Queenston Heights, where General Brock was killed, October 13, 1812. Nelson W. Ames, the subject of our biographical sketch, married October 16, 1838, Ruth Muma, who was born in East Dumfries Township, November 4, 1821. She is a daughter of Christian and Ann Muma. Her father was a native of Pennsylvania, and her mother of New Jersey. Mr. and Mrs. Ames are members of the Methodist Church, and are parents of nine children, seven of whom are living, viz., William N., Ruth J., James A., Alexander T., Emma A., Mary L. and Maggie. The deceased are William N. and Charlotte. Mr. Ames has filled the office of School Trustee, and has met with marked success in the farming operations. From 100 acres of land, on which he first started he has now 530 acres of well cultivated land, with comfortable dwelling houses and substantial outbuildings.1a

Ensign Brockway Ames Appointed Lieut. 25 Jun 1814


The Oxford's first engagement came early in the war. On July 19, 1812, Captain Marvel White, Commander of the 1st Flank company, 10 led his men down the Thames accompanied by the Niagara Dragoons. They took prisoners near Delaware (traitors) and arranged for their incarceration at Fort George. Along the way, their contingent joined detachments of the York,Lincoln and Norfolk Regiments and some fifty from the 41st Regiment, under the command of Major Chambers. General Brock and his party, including men of the Oxfords, arrived on the western frontier on August 13th after a trip from the Niagara to Dover, then by sailboat to Fort Malden. Three days later, Brock launched the attack on the Detroit fortress using his force of regulars, supplemented by the Militia, the Provincial Marines and loyal Indians under Tecumseh. In his report, Brock said of the victory "The steadiness and discipline of the 41st Regiment and the readiness of the Militia to follow so good an example were highly conspicuous,"

A number of Burford Gore boys accompanied the Oxfords to the Detroit frontier. Captain White's company had a complement of thirty-five privates, one was Private Woodley of Lower Oakland.White's officers included Lieutenants Joseph Baker and John Williams plus Sergeants Peter Martin and Adam Yeigh. Captain John Carroll's Second Flank Company lists several Gore boys: Hugh Malcolm; Nathan, Archibald and Daniel Burtch; Peter and John Malcolm; Anthony Westbrook. The Malcolms were sons of the Gore's founder, Finlay Malcolm Sr. (1750-1829) John, previously mentioned, operated the gristmill. Hugh (1789-1828) died at a barn raising. Peter (1796-1864) farmed west of Scotland village. The muster roll of Captain Edward Watson's Company lists three Burford Gore men: Charles Eddy (1781-1852); Mathias Woodley (1789-1858); Neal Brown.

Adam Yeigh saw action at Fort Detroit in August, 1812. Forty-eight years later Benson L. Lossing, the book A Pictorial Field-Book of the war of 1812, [interviewed Mr. Yeigh at his Burford residence. Lossing had this to say about the reminiscences of the veteran militiaman I was informed, from the lips of Adam Yeigh of Burford who was one of the volunteers. that all of the recruits from his neighborhood were dressed in scarlet uniform at the public expense. When they approached Sandwich he said these raw recruits were mixed with the regulars, each volunteer being placed between two regulars. By this stratgem Hull was deceived into the belief that a large British force was marching against him. Yeigh was an energetic young man and soon won the confidence of Brock, who gave the following directions on the day that they marched upon Sandwich from Amherstburg if your lieutenant fails, take his place if your captain falls, take his place; if your colonel falls take his place. As no blood was shed on the occasion, and nobody fell,Yeigh failed of promotion. He cited This circumstance to show how nearly be came to being a British colonel."

10 Some men accompanied General Brock by boat to Fort Malden. Others joined Lt. Col, Henry Bostwick at Oxford to march to Amherstburg, there being insulficient space in the vessels for everyone to travel the Lake Erie route

The land on which this house sits was occupied by one of the township's earliest settlers, Nicholas Ancel. John Ament received the Crown Deed to the land in 1858 and built what is now the "tail" or addition to this fine, brick, Georgian house in the 1860s. The 2 1/2 storey brick house was built after 1861 but certainly before 1870.

At the time of designation, the house was virutally unaltered. Designated September 2, 1986.

790 Memorial will honor city teacher

CAMBRIDGE - Students, co-workers and friends will gather Friday at Glenview Park Secondary School to remember a guidance counsellor who died Saturday after a freak December accident. Fred Robert Andersen, of Esther Avenue in Cambridge, died of head injuries at 5:30 a.m. in Cambridge Memorial Hospital. He was 41. "It's pretty sombre; it's pretty tough going for some people around here," Glenview Park principal Tony Fieder said Monday. Mr. Anderson was walking his dog during Christmas holiday, when the animal bolted and pulled him off balance, Glenview librarian Gerry Love said. He fell and hit his head, and was treated at hospital. He went home, then returned to hospital later in January and died of complications. He was a history teacher, guidance counsellor and coached boys and girls volleyball teams. He was also coach of the hockey team from 1978 to 1981. A Cambridge native, Mr. Andersen was a 1970 Glenview graduate. He was also a member of the Galt branch of the Royal Canadian Legion, where he had served a term on the executive and was responsible for youth education. A funeral service was set for 11 a.m. today at the Corbett Funeral Home. Glenview's memorial service is set for 3 p.m. in the school's west gym.1a

801 Give us your rapt attention
Oh maidens fancy free,
Here are the Leap Year Chances
That will make your sorrows free.

Carl Anderson has been patient
Looking forward to the year,
Now if some girls would ask him
It would fill his heart with cheer.

Fred Walker is another
Still in the Bachelor's row,
He'd accept you any minute
Anyone would tell you so.

Harry Miller, a real good farmer
Has no time for girls at all,
So it's plain your hours are wasted
When on him you call.

Then comes Bruce Graham
As patient as can be,
If the girls think he won't marry,
Just ask him once and see.

Jack Tye, a fine young man is he,
He smiles and that with vim,
But Girls don't waste your precious time
A Milverton girl's got him.

John Graham is still at large,
And many a girl would sigh
And the prospect would be bright,
So it's really worth a try.

Ed Anderson, happy as can be,
For him a girl should try
Just put your cake upon the shelf
You'll get him by and by.

Reg Puddicombes' grand big house
Without a wife looks bare,
But before some girl gets him,
You'll have to use a snare.

York and Arthur Nahrgang
Two handsome lads they be,
Now girls don't miss asking them
Or these two will go free.

Norman Kocher is still with us
And he is going to stay,
So if some girl proposes,
I'm sure that it will pay.

Clarence Graham and Joe Brenneman,
Both young you must agree,
If you think they would not want you,
Just ask them once and see.

So all you girls in Haysville,
Who chance to this rhyme
The "Bachelors" of the neighbourhood
Await you to name the time.

Now show them you can do it,
The way is surely clear,
Pick out "your man" and bear in mind
It's a long time till next leap year

802 The Rev. E. Earl Anderson, 86, of Indiana, Pa., formerly of Sewickley, Pa., died on Sunday, Jan. 18, 2015.

He was born in Kenora, Ontario, Canada, on May 24, 1928, the fifth child of Swedish immigrants Bengt Anderson and Emma Kristina Berguson.

Earl was a respected pastor and community leader. He touched many lives, teaching in a positive, nurturing and oftentimes humorous way.

His first parish was St. Matthew's of East Zorra Township and Bethany, Woodstock, Ontario, in 1953, followed by Pennsylvania congregations located in Penn Hills (as a mission developer for the Board of American Missions), Sewickley, Blairsville, Smicksburg and Trade City. While in Blairsville, he also served as Chaplain at Torrance State Hospital.

After retirement in 1990, Earl served as interim pastor at Evangelical Lutheran Church in America churches within the northwestern and southwestern PA Synods. Finally, he served from January 2004 through March 2005 as the part-time assistant to the pastor of Zion Lutheran Church in Indiana, Pa.

Earl graduated with a Bachelor of Arts from Waterloo College (University of Western Ontario) and with a Certificate of Theology from Waterloo Seminary. He was ordained by the United Lutheran Church, Canada Synod, in 1953. After decades of ministry, he received his Doctor of Ministry in 1991 from the Pittsburgh Theological Seminary in Pittsburgh and his Master of Sacred Theology in 1999 from the Lutheran Theological Seminary in Gettysburg, Pa.

Over the years, he served in many capacities and on many boards and committees for various organizations, including the Greensburg Conference, the Southwestern Pennsylvania Synod's Committee for Examination and Ordination, the Lutheran Campus Ministry Committee for Indiana University of Pennsylvania, delegate to the national church convention and the Synod Council.

803 Give us your rapt attention
Oh maidens fancy free,
Here are the Leap Year Chances
That will make your sorrows free.

Carl Anderson has been patient
Looking forward to the year,
Now if some girls would ask him
It would fill his heart with cheer.

Fred Walker is another
Still in the Bachelor's row,
He'd accept you any minute
Anyone would tell you so.

Harry Miller, a real good farmer
Has no time for girls at all,
So it's plain your hours are wasted
When on him you call.

Then comes Bruce Graham
As patient as can be,
If the girls think he won't marry,
Just ask him once and see.

Jack Tye, a fine young man is he,
He smiles and that with vim,
But Girls don't waste your precious time
A Milverton girl's got him.

John Graham is still at large,
And many a girl would sigh
And the prospect would be bright,
So it's really worth a try.

Ed Anderson, happy as can be,
For him a girl should try
Just put your cake upon the shelf
You'll get him by and by.

Reg Puddicombes' grand big house
Without a wife looks bare,
But before some girl gets him,
You'll have to use a snare.

York and Arthur Nahrgang
Two handsome lads they be,
Now girls don't miss asking them
Or these two will go free.

Norman Kocher is still with us
And he is going to stay,
So if some girl proposes,
I'm sure that it will pay.

Clarence Graham and Joe Brenneman,
Both young you must agree,
If you think they would not want you,
Just ask them once and see.

So all you girls in Haysville,
Who chance to this rhyme
The "Bachelors" of the neighbourhood
Await you to name the time.

Now show them you can do it,
The way is surely clear,
Pick out "your man" and bear in mind
It's a long time till next leap year
.1a

804 E. H. Anderson Died Today

Friends were shocked to learn of the sudden death early this morning of one of Galt's oldest businessmen, Edgar H. Anderson, 76, of 210 Main St. E. Mr. Anderson who came to Galt in 1913 was born in Uxbridge and had been associated with the T. Little and Son Company for the past 47 years, serving as president and secretary-treasurer for the past four. Active in lodge circles, the deceased had been a Mason, member of Galt Lodge 257 and a Royal Arch Mason of Waterloo Lodge 32. He was also a member of Central Presbyterian Church. The late Mr. Anderson was married twice, his first wife, the former Jean Mary Gould, whom he married in Orillia in May, 1907 predeceased him in 1950. His second wife, the former Emma Jane Longfield survives. A sister, Mrs. J. D. Dixon of Toronto also survives. He was predeceased by three brothers and one sister. Friends will be received at Little's Funeral Home, 39 Grand Avenue North, for funeral service on Monday afternoon at 2 o'clock. Interment will follow in Mount View Cemetery.1a

___________________

HE WAS A DECENT CHAP \endash Like all fellow citizens I was shocked Friday morning to learn of the sudden passing of Ed Anderson, president and general manager of T. Little and Son for the past four years with which business he had been associated since 1913. He came here from Orillia where he learned the furniture business and before that for five years was employed by the provincial government as assistant paymaster during the construction of the Timiskaming and Northern Ontario railway. Deceased suffered a heart attack a few years ago and since then had been careful and had taken life easy. He was at business on Thursday as usual, did not complain and retired that night around 10 o'clock. Early Friday morning he suffered a heart attack and while medical aid was immediately summoned he passed away before he could be removed to hospital. Ed Anderson was a top salesman, possessing a pleasing and kind disposition; was charitable, always ready and willing to assist the unfortunate and really a likeable chap. If I do say it, I doubt if anybody knew him better than we did, having met him the first day he joined the Little business and prized our associations ever since. He will be greatly missed in the city of his adoption. He was one of the deans of the city's retail section.2a

809 ANDERSON, J. T.

A highly respectable farmer, Mr. J. T. Anderson, came to his death on Friday last, by a calamity as inexplicable as it was sudden. He had been in Galt with a load of firewood and had returned home, where he had again loaded his waggon with wood and had proceeded as far as the house of Mr. Henderson on the Mill Creek, when death appears to have overtaken him with inconceivable suddenness. His body was there found in the snow but so quietly had he fallen, that the snow on either side was entirely undisturbed, presenting an accurate figure of his body. He appeared to have been walking at the side of his waggon and when he fell, the reins getting entangled in the wheels, had drawn the horses towards the fence and there they were till their master's fate was discovered. An inquest was held the same evening before Dr. Seagram, coroner, and a respectable jury, when the above facts were given in evidence and it was also ascertained the no wound or bruise was visible except a trifling scratch and therefore, the cause of death arose from a sudden fit. The jury agreed on the following verdict " that he came to his death accidentally, while driving a span of horses and waggon towards Galt." Mr. Anderson has left a large family to lament his loss.1a

James Anderson
 
812 carrier James Anderson
 
813 James Anderson was born in the north of Ireland in 1828, served four years in the Irish Constabulary between the ages of 18 and 22, learned the carriage making trade in Ireland where his father and two brothers were joiners (Carpenters) and then he came to Caledonia, Ontario, where he worked at his trade for some time. In the old days, Blacksmiths, Waggon Makers, Saw Millers and others, like the farmers, hired help for so much a month (or week) and board. When J. N. Cober was running his carriage shop in Puslinch, six men employed by him, boarded in his house. On the River Road south from Breslau almost across the road from the Joseph B. Hagey farm a man named Ryan ran a blacksmith shop with a wood shop in connection. His employees, I have no doubt, boarded at his house. Needing a wood worker, he contacted in some way, James Anderson, who came to work for him probably around 1860.

Mr. Anderson married Hannah Ryan and their first child was born in 1862. Anderson's name does not appear as owner or tenant nor on the Statute Labour list in Hespeler until 1866 in which year he is shown as tenant of a house owned by Louis Englehart on Queen East and as owner of a quarter of an acre of land on Cooper Street assessed for $300.00. That means there must have been a building on the land, for, in those days vacant lots were more apt to be priced at $300.00 a dozen than apiece! Highly improbable, I should say, that Hannah, then a girl around 20 would have met her future husband as far afield as Caledonia. More likely she was at home helping with the house work and Jimmie met her there.

As 1 reconstruct it, Anderson, while still working for Ryan, heard that Wiffler was dead and that his shop was for sale and he came here and bought it in 1865 or early 1866. In any event he carried on business there until 1886 when he sold out to Aaron Groh and retired. He died January 31st, 1913; His wife, on December 28th, 1907, aged 67 years, 8 months. I have it from the family that Mr. Anderson worked at the waggon making trade for 26 years which would mean that he came to Ryan in 1860, give or take a bit.

Among the men employed in that shop in the times of Charles Wiffler and James Anderson may be mentioned David Fields, 1862-64; Thomas Trimble, 1864; Henry Shoemaker, 1866; Jonathan Mager (Brother of Mrs. Solomon Keifer), 1867-74; Dilman Kraft, 1868; Wellington Morne, 1870, and William Parks who learned his trade with Anderson.1a

817 Knell, Jean D. - It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Jean Donalda (Anderson) Knell, on Tuesday, Feb. 19, 2002.

Jean was born June 11, 1914, in Walkerton, Ontario and spent her life happily committed to her family, her church and her many friends.

Jean was deeply loved by her husband, Carl W. Knell who predeceased her in 2001. She will be greatly missed by daughter, Carla Bechtel and her husband Robert of Petersburg and her son, Michael and his wife Marie of Waterloo. She will be forever remembered for the fun she brought to the lives of her grandsons, Peter, Paul, Steven and Mark and her great-granddaughter, Tracy.

She was predeceased by her parents, Louis and Elizabeth (Salter) Anderson; her sister, Vera Baxter and her brothers, Delbert and Sheldon Anderson.

After attending high school in Walkerton, she became a hairdresser and moved to Kitchener where she worked for her brother at Anderson's Beauty Parlor. Married in 1939, she spent her life as a true helpmate and friend to Carl. She was the number one fan of and loyal supporter to her children and later her grandchildren. She was active in the Women's Association at St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church, serving as president at one time and served on the Auxiliary at the A.R. Goudie Eventide Home. During her last few years, Multiple Sclerosis and Alzheimers challenged her, but these diseases were not able to take away the grace and joy that were such a part of her. She will always be remembered for her wonderful smile and honest friendliness to all who met her.

Cremation has taken place. The family will receive friends at the Ratz-Bechtel Funeral Home, 621 King St. W., Kitchener, on Saturday from 10-11 a.m. A Memorial Service will be held at 11 a.m. in the Ratz-Bechtel Chapel.

A reception will follow in the Ratz-Bechtel Family Centre.

If you wish, donations to the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada will be greatly appreciated by the family.

Our heartfelt thanks go out to Dr. George Berrigan and his staff and to the staff at The Village of Winston Park for their caring and compassion.1a

822 In the death of Mr. John Anderson, undertaker, which sad event occurred this morning, one of the best known citizens is removed from the community in which he was held in universal esteem. The illness under which he labored was of two years' duration, the nature of the disease baffling the skill of the physicians, who could afford very little relief of the intense suffering of the patient. Up to within a few moments of his death he was conscious and took final leave of his sons and daughter who had been assiduous in their attentions to the sick man and did all that was possible to alleviate his pain and comfort him as the end approached. Mr. Anderson, a native of Edinburgh, Scotland, came to Galt some twenty years ago, from Wingham. He had previously resided in Collingwood. All these years he conducted a furniture and undertaking establishment, the work of which he personally supervised, until advancing age and a serious internal trouble forced him to retire, leaving the business affairs in the hands of his son and partner, Mr. Wm. Anderson. His wife who died six years ago, was Miss Ann Martin, of Oshawa. Four children blessed the union, two sons and two daughters. The death of Jennie which occurred last November, was the first break in the family. There are left Miss Phoebe, at home; Mr. A. J., of Aylmer, and Mr. W. H. Anderson. One sister in Edinburgh, a widow with a large family, also survives. Deceased was a man of superior intelligence, of unflagging industry and of good business ability. He enjoyed a reputation for scrupulous honesty and unimpeachable integrity. Sociable in his instincts he made many friends, whom he was always ready to serve in whatever way he could. A member of Collingwood Lodge of Oddfellows, he identified himself with the local lodge and joined the Encampment. He was enthusiastic in the support of the Order and the membership held him in high esteem. Deceased was an adherent of Knox Church and a Liberal in politics. The funeral will take place on Wednesday afternoon to Mount View cemetery.1a

831 Knox Preston Presbyterian Church

Rev. Charles Freshman, who served as a German Wesleyan Methodist missionary in Preston and area c.1860-1869, stated in his autobiography that the Presbyterian Church engaged a "young Swiss preacher and sent him out to evangelize the Germans in Waterloo County" (Freshman 1868:284). Dr. Freshman reported that the young Presbyterian preacher preached in the "Lutheran Church in that place [Preston] ... but he failed to establish a cause" (Ibid:285).
According to the Minutes of the Second General Assembly (1876) of the Presbyterian Church in Canada, a German Mission was established in Preston on August 10, 1875 and an English one was begun on March 14, 1876. Rev. George Haigh was inducted as Minister to the combined congregations of Preston, Doon and Hespeler on April 24, 1876. Formal organization of this English-speaking congregation was on August 29, 1876. Services at the German Mission were "suspended" in January, 1878, "for want of encouragement", according to the Minutes of the Fourth General Assembly in 1878.
Commencing in 1880, services were held by Rev. Haigh in a stone building at the corner of Duke and Argyle Streets in Preston. However, on March 20, 1883 Preston was separated from Doon and Hespeler which remained under the ministry of Rev. Haigh. Preston reverted to a Mission Station at that time, only to be "dissolved" on September 16, 1884, according to the Minutes of the Eleventh General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in Canada in 1885.
The congregation was reorganized in 1891 by Dr. James A.R. Dickson of Central Presbyterian Church, Galt; the first church service was held on April 5, 1891 by Mr. P.W.

The Lyceum Hall on King Street was purchased in 1893, renovated, and dedicated on July 16, 1893. Preston and Doon were placed on a two-point charge in 1893; the first minister was Rev. Herbert Francis Thomas (1893-1898) who was ordained and inducted into Knox Presbyterian on August 21, 1893.

The cornerstone for a new church on Argyle Street North, between King and Duke Streets, was laid on October 18, 1964. Dedication services for the new building held on March 27, 1965 included locking the door of the old church.

855 Shantz Station Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church

As the congregation was not organized until 1860, Lutherans from the area worshipped at the Lutheran Church in Preston from c.1855. Rev. Immanuel Wurster of St. Peter's Lutheran Church, Preston, conducted the first service in Shantz Station on February 5, 1860 in a school about one mile west of the community. Formal organization of the congregation was on March 25, 1860 by Rev. Wurster. A church was built two years later in 1862 on a half acre of land (German Company Tract, part lot 85) donated by John Galt of the Canada Company. There were 58 charter members listed as of 1862. Of interest is the fact that the church once had a steeple. It was demolished in an electrical storm in 1904 and was rebuilt only to be destroyed again in 1930 by lightning. It was not rebuilt after that.

In 1885 the congregation split from the Canada Synod and joined the Missouri Synod, only to return to the Canada Synod in the spring of 1891. From 1912-1934 Trinity was served by pastors and students from Waterloo College. Rev. Otto Lincke of the College was pastor from 1912-1919, students preached from 1919-1922, and Rev. Professor Henry L. Henkel also from Waterloo College was pastor from 1922-1934. The congregation was joined in a parish with St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Guelph from 1937-1981, and has been on its own since that association ended in 1981.

Pastors who followed Rev. Wurster (1860-1869) were Revs. C.F.A. Kaessmann (February 1869 to October 1869), Hermann Sagehorn (1869-1872), Immanuel Wurster, for the second time (1872-1885), and Peter Andres (1885-1890).1a

880 CENTENNIAL OF SUDDABY SCHOOL, KITCHENER September 27, 1957

Thirty-two former students of Central School, Berlin, all of whom entered prior to 1900, heard again the ringing of the old school bell, before it was received by W. H. E. Schmalz for installation in the school house at the Ontario Pioneer Community in Doon. The oldest former student present was 89-year-old Mrs. J. C. Breithaupt who entered in 1876. Central School was renamed in 1910 in honour of Jeremiah Suddaby who in 1877 was first principal of the model school for training teachers.*

Guest speaker was Education Minister Dunlop who said that while he presided often at the opening of new schools, it was a novel experience to appear in a school which had seen a century of service. In 1882 the first kindergarten was opened with Janet Metcalfe as teacher.* At the close of his address Mr. Dunlop unveiled a plaque in honour of the centennial.

882 Death of a Pioneer Furniture Maker

One of the oldest furniture manufacturers in Canada, and a pioneer in the industry in Berlin, died in that city on April 13th, in the person of John S. Anthes, president of the Anthes Furniture Co. Deceased was born in Wilmot Township, Waterloo County, Ontario, November 8th, 1844, and was therefore in his 71st year. He received his education in the county schools, and later taught school for several years. In 1865, he went to Berlin, and was employed by the late Louis Breithaupt, founder of the leather and tanning business now carried on by the Breithaupt Leather Company Ltd. Mr. Anthes was employed as accountant and salesman for a number of years and later entered the furniture business being associated with some of the pioneer furiture manufacturers of Berlin, such as the late John Aldous and William Simpson. In 1884, he purchased the Berlin Novelty Works and carried on business in his own name for a number of years in the manufacture of children's carriages and patent slat chairs. In 1888, his factory was destroyed by fire, but was immediately rebuilt on a much larger scale. In this factory, Mr. Anthes began making the high grade furniture which has made his name known throughout Canada in the furniture trade. In 1901 he went into the amalgamation of furniture factories under the name of Canada Furniture Manufacturers Ltd., in which company he was a director and manager of the local factories for a number of years. In 1906, Mr. Anthes resigned as director of the Canada Furniture Manufacturers Ltd. and built the present large, modern factory at Berlin in partnership with J. C. Breithaupt, under the name of The Anthes Furniture Co., the product of this factory being exclusively high grade furniture. The late Mr. Anthes always took a keen interest in municipal affairs and served in council and on public boards for many years. He was known as a keen business man and successful manufacturer and his many friends throughout the country will sincerely mourn his departure. Mr. Anthes was married in 1867 to Miss L. Catherine Herlan who with one son J. I. Frank Anthes, and four daughters, Mrs. J. C. Breithaupt, Mrs. A. L. Breithaupt, Mrs. T. H. Reider [sic] and Mrs. H. M. Cook, and twenty grandchildren survive. A sister, Mrs. G. Strasser, of Sebringville, also survives. The late H. W. Anthes, who died recently in Toronto, was a brother. The funeral was held from his late residence thence to Zion Evangelical Church for service. The remains were interred in Mount Hope Cemetery.

In October of that year he came to Waterloo, and entered into partnership with Dr. J. H. Webb. The duration of this arrangement has not been determined, but he practiced in Waterloo for nearly twenty five years, being an esteemed physician who was regarded as competent and highly skilled. The major part of the information concerning him is devoted to the circumstances of the accident which resulted in his death. A fall over a bannister onto the floor below, at his Queen Street residence, resulted in a fracture of the spine from which he died on January 18, 1911. He was survived by his wife and two children.

914 Some of the older inhabitants will remember the two-storey building popularly called "Das Spritzhaus". After the village was incorporated in 1857, Jacob C. Snider donated the lot just south of the Public Library on Albert Street as a site for a municipal building. The upper room served as a village hall until the present town hall was erected in 1874, (at a cost of $10,000). The lower or ground floor was used as a firehall, and housed the large, mounted hand pump, hose, leather buckets and other accessories used by the firemen of the time. Great was the excitement when a score or more of volunteers grasped the long rope attached to the "engine", and ran along the bumpy street to a fire, with bells clanging and the "chief" shouting his orders through a trumpet.

After the present town hall was built, the lower floor continued to be used as a firehall, and the upper was used for various purposes.

A private school, with the late Mrs. James Thompson, nee Miss Agnes Armstrong as teacher, was conducted here for a short time. The upper floor was used at one time as a morgue. Elections were held here, the municipal centre, and were decided by open voting, as there was no balloting then.1a

916 Death of a Former Galtonian

We have received Grand Rapids papers mentioning at length the circumstances of the death and funeral of Charles N. Armstrong, of that city, who died on Sunday 10th inst., and was buried on the 14th inst. He will be recollected as a boy by many of our old citizens, the eldest son of Thomas Armstrong, at one time Division Court bailiff here, and who moved to Grand Rapids about 1859. Mrs. Armstrong, an estimable, gentle hearted lady, died in 1863, just before the conclusion of the war, in which her son Alfred took a part. The husband, Thomas Armstrong, after much suffering from an attack of paralysis, died in 1882. Of the three children now surviving, Alfred is living in San Francisco, unmarried, and has been for several years a member of the family of Thomas Knox, a son of the late Oliver P. Knox, who is not forgotten by those of us who were here thirty years ago; Eunice is in Germany following her musical tastes with success, but unfortunately for her ambition is not in good health, and Clara is the wife of the genial "Dick" Furness, so long connected with the old Great Western Railway.

Returning to the subject of this notice, Charles, after his removal here with his parents from Sheffield, was in Mr. Tassle's school a couple of years and then spent three years at Victoria College, after which he went to Grand Rapids, where he studied for the legal profession. After a time he went into business with his father, and in succeeding years, had some of the good and ill fortune attending a boy and man under unfavorable circumstances, but in the last few years, we understand, his position and prospects have been deservedly promising. We see that he has been city Controller for the last four years, and had from his party and personal popularity out of it, a fair assurance this spring of a renewal of his occupancy. His disease for the past year was a combination of liver and incident troubles, against which he earnestly fought. He is spoken of as a man of modest ways, making little pretenses, but much respected. He left a wife and daughter about 16 years old, for whom in his life insurances a comfortable provision is probably made. The Council met specially the evening of the funeral and appointed a successor for the balance of Mr. Armstrong's term, whose salary shall be for the benefit of the family. We understand that this is a custom in like cases at Grand Rapids and indicates that political hostility ceases with the grave. The funeral seems to have been unusually large, being under the management of the members of the Patriarchical Circle, the Order of Red Men, the Heptasolps in uniform, and attended by the Old Residents' Association and hundreds of citizens, and reaching nearly half a mile as a procession. These notes will probably be of interest to many or our older readers in this town and adjoining townships.1a

917 ARMSTRONG - This morning at 6 o'clock, at the homestead, Gilnockie farm, near Galt, David Armstrong passed away after a short illness. He had been quite active until the 17th inst. but the sudden death of his eldest daughter Janet, on Saturday morning, distressed him most severely and he retired to bed, sinking gradually until his death on Thursday morning. He suffered acutely for a time, but towards the end he passed away peacefully, aged 75 years.
The deceased was a native of Canobie, Dumfriesshire, Scotland, and one of the few survivors of the Gilnockie Armstrong's who for about 300 years lived on the old homestead farm in Dumfriesshire, Scotland, until the death of John Armstrong about five years ago. David came to Canada about 25 years ago, and settled on the Gilnockie farm. He was a man of retired, but literary habits, intelligent, and always well informed on the current topics of the day, a great reader, and although not a public man, always exceedingly interested in the political and industrial welfare of the country. His familiar face and figure will be very much missed from the neighbourhood.

Three daughters and two sons are left to mourn his loss; Elizabeth and Annie, of Toronto; Jean and Joseph at the homestead, and William, of the Ontario Normal college, Hamilton. - Galt Reporter.1a

924 Queen's Square cannon has storied history

Waterloo Region Record By rych mills

Remembrance Day is still in the air '97 as it should be 365 days a year '97 and the words and pictures from yesterday's ceremonies will hopefully linger in our memories. Today, Flash from the Past stretches Canadian remembrance to a war with which has no actual Canadian connection. Cambridge/Galt's Russian cannon in Queen's Square last saw military action in the 1853-1856 Crimean War. ....

Eight years after the end of the Crimean War, Galt council received a letter from the 4th Viscount Monck, Governor-General of British North America, saying that one of the guns captured from the Russians was being presented to the Town of Galt. When it arrived on December 2, 1864 via the Great Western Railway it was a mean-looking thing: the six-inch mouth, after being stuffed with seven pounds of gunpowder, could propel a 24-pound cannonball a couple thousand yards. Upon arrival in Galt, the cannon was immediately placed in Queen's Square on the west side of the Grand River. Its first call to action came on May 24, 1866 to celebrate Queen Victoria's 47th birthday. The cannon was hauled north a half mile to the top of the hill beside current-day Dickson Park.

Firing a 21-round Royal Salute at noon was to have been the high point of the Victoria Day events. An experienced soldier, although having no artillery experience, William Boge, volunteered to oversee the firing. Two other men, James Armstrong and David Galletly, offered to help. Without going into details, only one of those three was destined to survive the day's events. The first two or three rounds went off as planned, thrilling the thousands watching. Jim Quantrell's essay goes into the gory details of the next attempted firing. Suffice to say that during the funerals that evening, parts of two men were buried at the old St. Andrew's cemetery. The remaining Victoria Day celebrations were cancelled...

_____________________

According to a contemporary account of Victoria Day, May 24, 1866

"dawned must auspiciously. The weather was delightful and everything betokened a day of amusement such as Galt never before witnessed". The Town bells began pealing at 6:00 a.m. and soon people were gathering for the day's activities. Quoits began at 9:00 a.m. and the boat and horse races went off well.

As noon approached final preparations were made for the firing of the cannon which had been moved from Queen's Square to the Cricket Ground "near the face of the hill overlooking the dam". The firing of the cannon had been delegated by the Gun Committee to Mr. William Boge who had served for several years as an infantry soldier in the British Army. He lacked direct experience in the use of field artillery but felt himself to be fully acquainted with artillery practice and had convinced the authorities that he had sufficient knowledge to manage to the cannon properly.

Mr. Boge was assisted by Mr. James Armstrong, who attended to the ramming of the muzzle loading the gun, and by Mr. David Galletly who was working the vent of the gun. Three rounds had been safely fired when the powder for the fourth round was placed in the muzzle. Next came the wadding, which consisted of sod, with Mr. Boge and Mr. Armstrong ramming it home. Suddenly and unexpectedly a fearful roar rent the holiday air as the powder exploded prematurely. Perhaps the report of the contemporary press best expresses the shock and horror which descended upon the spectators as the smoke cleared. "The body of Boge had been driven about seven yards to the front and a little to the right. Armstrong's body was blown about the same distance to the left side close up to the fence. Both were rightfully disfigured, The upper portions of the bodies were entirely denuded of clothing and blackened an charred almost out of human resemblance. From Mr. Boge's body one arm had been blown off at the elbow and the other hand was missing. Armstrong's right arm was torn out at the shoulder blade and the left hand was also gone".

Mr. Galletly who had been attending to his duties at the vent when the accident occurred had his thumb badly lacerated and his hand burned. The only other injuries were to two boys who had been watching the firing of the gun. One unnamed boy suffered a slightly scratched cheek from the flying splinter. Another boy, John Lapraik, 7 years of age, received an ugly cut on the cheek when he was struck by a small piece of ramrod. His wound was speedily treated and soon healed.

Immediately following the accident the bodies of Mr. Armstrong and Mr. Boge were taken to the old school house on Dickson Street where an inquest was held at the direction of coroner, Dr. Phillips. Several witnesses were called, including David Galletly but none were able to give a satisfactory explanation of the direct cause of the premature firing of the gun. It was speculated however, that the firing was too rapid and that the cannon muzzle had not been adequately sponged after the third round was fired. It was though that burning embers remained in the cannon and had ignited the powder charge too soon. The jury ruled "that said William Boge and James Armstrong came to their deaths through accident caused by inexperience of the parties to whom the firing of the 24 pound gun was entrusted."

The games that had been scheduled for the afternoon were canceled as the Town's joy turned to sorrow and Galt prepared to bury its two sons. The coroner ordered that the bodies by buried without undue delay so the funeral was held at 8:00 p.m. that same evening at the old School House. Both deceased men had been members of the Galt Fire Brigade which turned out in force to honour their fallen comrades. The bodies were placed on Fire Engine No. 1 and, after a short service conducted by the Rev. Mr. Campbell, were taken for burial to St. Andrew's Cemetery.

William Boge was 27 years old when he was killed, a native of Roxboroughshire, Scotland. He and his wife had immigrated to Canada two years previously and for some time he had worked for Turnbull and Deans, the predecessor of Charles Turnbull Co. Ltd. Mrs. Boge was a well known local vocalist and a women of frail health. She was in the crowd watching the cannon and witnessed the accident. The shock was such that she fainted "and it was only by the most unremitting attention that she was brought out of the heavy swoons that rapidly succeeded one another". She was taken home and remained in serious condition. For some time it was feared that she might not survive but eventually she came around and "strong hopes" were held for her full recovery.

James Armstrong had been born in Havick in Scotland and was about 32 years of age. He was not married, had lived in Canada for about nine years and was employed as a wool sorter in the Robinson and Howell Woollen Mill. Both men were described as "steady and industrious and much respected by their acquaintances."

Born in Wigtonshire, Scotland, where she was also married, herself and husband came to Canada some 65 years ago, settling at Richwood and about 20 years later, after Mr. Gourlay's death, moved to Ayr, where she continued to reside until her demise. She was a Presbyterian and a faithful member of Knox United Church; also a worker in the Ladies' Aid Society. Outside of these activities, she devoted nearly all her time to the interests of her home and family, of whom there were 14 children, and 13 survive her - one, Alice, having lost her life in a railway wreck near Paris some years ago. The surviving members comprise five daughters and eight sons. They are - Mrs. Wm. Waugh, Innerkip; Mrs. Wm. Manson, Ayr; Mrs. Murdo Lillico, Blenheim; Mrs. E.S. Boddy, Portage Laprarie; Jessie, John and Robert at home; Thomas, William and James, in Manitoba; George in Paris; Peter near Ayr, and Alexander in Toronto.

Five sisters and two brothers are also living. Mrs. Peter Rodger resides in Greenfield; Mrs. John Ross and Mrs. Wm. Muir in Paris, and Thomas Armstrong in Woodstock. Another sister and another brother are in Australia. The funeral, which was private, took place from her late residence, Swan St., yesterday (Wednesday) afternoon, Rev. Mr. Brown and Dr. Tomson officiating. Interment was made in the Ayr Cemetery. The pall-bearers were Messrs. J. L. Black, G.D. Black, D. Lillico, J. Ennis, N. Walton, and Jas. Dennis.1a

927 Passing of Mrs. Janet Thomson - Galt's oldest citizen, in the person of Mrs. Janet Thomson, mother of Mr. Alexander Thomson of this village, passed away at her home in Galt on Monday, in her 99th year, following the dislocation of her hip a week previously.

The deceased was born near Hawick, Roxboroughshire, Scotland, on Feb. 19, 1824, and came to Canada in '41, settling in Galt. Later they took up land north-east of Roseville, and while there attended Stanley Street Church, Ayr. On leaving the farm about 30 years ago, they again settled in Galt, where Mr. Thomson died some three years later.

Mrs. Thomson, despite her great age, retained all her faculties to the last and would doubtless have lived many years longer but for the accident which befell her. Hers was a genial, kindly disposed nature, and a sunny disposition. She loved the society of young people, and was very fond of animals and flowers. Everywhere she made staunch friends and very many will deeply regret her demise.

She leaves eight sons and daughters, 14 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren. Interment took place at Mount view Cemetery, Galt, on Tuesday afternoon.1a
