- Death of Wyllie Manson
Long ago we had exhausted the triple adjective phrase sad, sadder, saddest, in describing the inroads of Influenza and still those pathetic words continue to apply with increased significance.
Of all the sad cases in this community which we have been called upon to report in connection with the prevailing epidemic, perhaps the saddest so far occurred on Saturday, when a young newly married man in the person of Adam Wyllie Manson, who had just entered upon the duties and responsibilities of citizenship, was snatched from a sphere of usefulness in which he gave promise of more than average aptitude.
Though his case was viewed with alarm from the first, the outcome was in the nature of a shock, and the deepest sympathy of the entire community goes out to the disconsolate bride, father, mother and sisters.
Deceased was the only son of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Manson of Ayr, who had just transferred their homestead to Wyllie and moved into town. Under the circumstances his death creates a situation that will be difficult to adjust. What the solution will be time alone will determine.
Wyllie Manson, who was in his 27th year, was born on the farm on which he died. Two months before his death he married Miss Ella Marshall, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Stephen Marshall.
From his boyhood the deceased was prominent in Sabbath school work, and at the time of his death was sec.-Treas. Of Knox United Sunday school, and was also an enthusiastic worker in other departments of the Church of which he was a consistent member. He was interested in agriculture and prominent n the Junior Farmers' club. In athletic sports he gave most attention to bowling and hockey.
Besides his wife, father and mother, the deceased is survived by five sisters. They are - Gladys, teacher at Plattsville, (who is ill with "Flu"), Bessie, St. Catharine's, Jean, Mary, Edna, and Stella, at home. The funeral, which took place to the Ayr cemetery on Monday, was well attended, and a wealth of beautiful flowers attested the esteem in which the deceased was held. Rev. J.J. Brown conducted the service, assisted by Rev. D. (?), Toronto, formerly pastor of Stanley St. Church, Ayr. The pallbearers were Messrs. Rolland Maeder, Filshie Cuthbertson, John Edgar, Wm. Marshall, David Hall and Alex Gourlay.1a
