  • Notes 
    • DEATH OF MR. DAVID BLYTH - This old and well-known resident of Galt passed away on Thursday morning after an illness of several months' duration, in the 58th year of his age. During the period of a little over two years three members of the deceased's family have died from consumption, and now the father succumbs to the same fatal disease. Mr. Blyth was a good citizen, and for many years had charge of the cooper shop connected with the Dickson Mills. The surviving members of the stricken family have the heartfelt sympathy of our townspeople generally in their affliction.
