      Bright Young Man Succumbs - Throughout the civilized world and ..?..of the …?... that the ? total of victims will greatly exceed that of the greatest war in any age. Already the number of colossal, and there is no telling when the disease will exhaust itself. No community throughout the land appears to be immune, but some sections have undoubtedly suffered more than others. A remarkable thing about his hitherto unknown disease is that it attacks those of splendid physique just as readily as it does those who are constitutionally week, with the chances for successfully combatting it about equally divided. On Saturday last a young man in this vicinity, William Reid Lisso, succumbed to influenza and pneumonia after an illness of about 14 days. He was in his 21st year and was of fine physique, indicating that youth and physical prowess do not avail. The deceased was the eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. A. C. Lisso of North Dumfries, and was one of the most scholarly young men in the district. His primary schooling was obtained at Reidsville, after which he spent three years in the Ayr Union Continuation School and four years in the Galt Collegiate, finishing up by winning second prize for the County in the Carter Scholarship contest. While at Galt he was a member of the Cadets, with the rank of Lieutenant, and won three medals for target shooting. He was a member of Knox United Church and took an interest in church work. Besides his father and mother, he is survived by three brothers (Frank, Melville and August) and two sisters (Belle and Clara). On Monday his remains were interred in the Ayr Cemetery, Rev. J. J. Brown conducting the service. The pallbearers were: Messrs. Norman McLeod, James Gemmell (RR 2), Thos. Ritchie, James Gemmell (Ayr), Earle Currie and Walter Thomson.
