  • Notes 
    • The funeral of Russel Smith, son of Mr. and Mrs. A. B. Smith, and brother to Mr. Alteman who was killed under distressing circumstances in the Northwest some days ago, took place from the residence of Mr. Alteman yesterday afternoon. Interment took place in Hawkesville cemetery. Deceased, who was only 18 years of age was engaged in ranching near to Medicine Hat, Alta., and while pursuing his duties was in some unaccountable manner thrown from his horse. When discovered he was unconscious and had evidently been lying in this condition for a considerable time. There were no eye witnesses of the sad occurence, and just how the accident happened will probably never be known. The remains arrived here on Tuesday. Much sympathy will be felt by the residents in the vicinity for the bereaved parents, especially in view of the condition of Mrs. Smith, who has been ill for some time at the residence of her daughter here.1a
