    • WESLEY BULMER PASSED AWAY
      AFTER LONG STRUGGLE WITH DREAD ANAEMIA VICTIM IS OVERCOME

      On the day before Christmas there passed out of our midst a well-known citizen in the person of Wesley Seaton Bulmer. The deceased was born at Wallenstein on the 12th of February 1877, the son of William R. Bulmer and Eliza A. (Seaton) Bulmer. He grew up to manhood on his father's farm and was married on May 4th 1898 to Miss Lilavet C. Cunningham. They lived on the old homestead near Wallenstein until 1921 when Mr. Bulmer was advised by his doctor to give up heavy work. He had had an attack of anaemia four years before that and the disease again made itself felt. So they retired from the farm and came to Elmira to live. While living here his health at times was fairly good, but still that insidious disease pernicious anaemia gradually weakened him until the end came rather quickly last Thursday. The deceased is survived by his sorrowing wife and one daughter, Mrs. Ernest Sippel. One son died in infancy. Two brothers and two sisters also survive, namely Alfred Bulmer of Minitonas, Man., Byron Bulmer of Oakville, Mrs. Wm. Lambkin of Gorrie and Mrs. Wm. Cunningham of Elmira.

      The funeral was held on Sunday afternoon. Rev. Mr. Sykes of Toronto preached the funeral sermon; Mr. Guthrie of Guelph sang "In the Haven of Rest" and also gave a short address. The pallbearers were: Pem Hosea, Ed. Tyack, W. W. Martinson, Chas. Matthews, Harold Sippel and Henry Hedrich. Besides many friends from the home district the following were present from a distance: Mrs. Hay and son Frank and Mrs. Shaw of Toronto, Mr. and Mrs. Lambkin of Gorrie, Mrs. Edwards of Milverton, Mr. J.H. Cunningham of Toronto, Mr. and Mrs. Byron Bulmer of Oakville, Mrs. Getty and son Harold of Galt, Mr. George McAllister, his son George and his daughter Doctor Joan McAllister, Mrs. Somerville and Mrs. Copas all of Guelph, Mr. and Mrs. Scherer of Kitchener, Mr. Hardy Bulmer and Mrs. Drummond of Kitchener.

      The local hockey club, of which Mr. Bulmer was president last year, sent a fine floral tribute. Some time ago they had secured a photograph of the deceased to keep as a remembrance.
