      _________________

      Mr. James Wilcox also lost his son, David Alexander. This young man has suffered for some time from a disease which necessitated a serious operation. A week or so ago he went to Toronto to have the operation performed. The shock to his system was so great that he never rallied and breathed his last the day following.
