    • DEATH OF MR. W. E. STRICKLAND

      Our townspeople were greatly shocked on Monday morning, to hear of the sudden demise of Mr. Wm. E. Strickland, auctioneer, which occurred on Sunday evening. So brief was the fatal illness that few outside his immediate friends were aware that he was confined to bed. He conducted a sale in Beverly on Tuesday and contracted a heavy cold, which settled on his lungs. He was however, attending to business up to Thursday. On Friday he became much worse and gradually sank till Sunday evening, when death occurred. Mr. Strickland, on the death of his father, continued the business which had been so successfully conducted by the late Mr. G. T. Strickland and he gave promise of becoming as successful as that gentleman had been. As an auctioneer the deceased was much esteemed by the farming community and the public generally and all sincerely regret to learn of his untimely death. The deceased had been married for some years and leaves his widow and one little child to mourn the loss of a husband and father. He was in the 29th year of his age. The funeral took place or Wednesday afternoon and was attended by a large concourse of friends. The Galt Council, Royal Arcanum, of which the deceased was a member, attended in a body.
