    • DEATH OF MRS. JOHN CANT

      We regret to have to announce the death of Mrs. John Cant, which took place on Monday morning last, after a lingering illness. The deceased lady will be greatly missed in Knox church circles, she having been an active and useful member of that church for "many years. Mrs. Cant was also an earnest temperance worker and devoted much time to advancing the interests of that cause, in Galt and the surrounding district. She leaves, to mourn her loss, her bereaved husband, one son and two daughters; Who will, we feel sure, have the sincere sympathy of the community in their heavy affliction.
