      Death of Alfred Boomer, Esq., of Linwood.

      After an illness of several months Mr. Alfred Boomer died from heart trouble, at his home in Linwood at 1.30 a.m. on January 27th. Mr. Boomer was a son of the late John Boomer, one of Halton county's earliest settlers, and was born on the homestead, lot 2, con. 7, Esquesing, near Hornby. In the days of his early manhood the family removed to Waterloo county where for half a century deceased has resided. He was an influential man in this county, enjoying universal respect and esteem, and he has for many years been Justice of the Peace and Clerk of the Division Court. He was an active member of the Methodist church, and through the efforts of himself and family the church at Linwood was largely sustained. Mr. Boomer was one of the oldest members, being looked upon as the father of the church here, and he was widely known all over the western peninsula, having attended several sessions of the Hamilton Conference as delegate from the Linwood circuit. In politics he was an ardent Liberal and he was also an energetic Prohibitionist.

      His ready sympathy in time of bereavement, his generosity in church matters, his kindness to the poor, and his estimable character make his loss very deeply felt by the people of Linwood.

      He is survived by his sorrowing widow and a family of five daughters: Misses Clara and Edith, at home: Mrs. M. Grimm, Milverton; Mrs. Rutherford, Toronto, and Mrs. Musselman, in the N. W. T., to whom the profound sympathy of the entire community is extended.

      The funeral left on Saturday for Hawkesville where the interment took place. The service at the house was conducted by Rev. J. C. Cameron, of the North Mornington Presbyterian church; Rev. S. Cunningham, of St. Andrews' Church, Hawkesville, and Rev. Dixon Sharpe, pastor of the Linwood Methodist church. The casket was entirely covered with floral tributes consisting of: a large circle of roses, carnations and ripened wheat, by the family; an anchor from Mr. John Boomer, of London, brother of the deceased; a large spray of tulips and foliage, from Mr. J. Bowes of Peterborough ; a spray of carnations, by Miss Quimbach, of Berlin; a flat boquet [sic] of carnations and smilax, from Dr. and Mrs. McEachern: a spray of carnations and lilies of the valley, by Miss Baldwin. The pall-bearers were Messrs. D. Ratz, of Elmira: D. B. Musselman, of Berlin; John Bowes, of Elora; R. McCallum, of Hawkesville ; R. Y. Fish and Robt. Hosea, of Linwood.2a
