  • Notes 
    • Death came suddenly to Mr. Andrew Ruxton, of Chippewa Hill, on Sunday last. Though not in rugged health for some time he was about the day of his death, having risen as usual and partaken of breakfast. Mr. Ruxton was in his 67th year and had been a resident of the Chippewa Hill community for many years. He leaves a widow, two sons and three daughters. The funeral took place to Southampton cemetery on Tuesday afternoon and was widely attended. The deceased was a member of the Presbyterian church and a Liberal in politics. He was a man of marked integrity and uprightness, an indulgent parent and a good neighbour. The community is made poorer by his removal.
