      Grief over the untimely death of her son, Broke down health of Mrs. Julia Martha Brown Mother of Harry W. Brown of Berlin.

      Remains to be brought here from Houghton The many friends in Berlin and vicinity of Mr. Harry W. Brown of the Collegiate and Technical Institute staff, will learn with deep regret of the death of his mother, Mrs. Julia Martha Brown, which took place at Houghton, Mich., on Saturday, after an illness extending over three years, The death is attended by circumstances that are particularly sad, for if ever there was a case of broken heart, this was one.

      Three years ago this month, one of her sons, Percy, who was brakeman on a train in Colorado, met his death by being thrown from the top of a car. He was buried at Manzanonia, in Colorado, and none of the family could reach there for the interment. The grief of the mother over her son's death broke down her health, and the best medical skill that could be secured, and careful hospital treatment could do nothing for her. She rallied somewhat, and there was a ray of hope that she might grow strong enough to come to Berlin, to spend the summer with her son Harry. But the improvement has been only temporary and she has been gradually fading away. One of her last desires given expression to was that she might be buried in Berlin.

      Her maiden name was Lambert. She was born in Rochester, N. Y. 62 years and two months ago and came to Mildmay, Ontario when quite young. Her father was one of the first settlers there. She was a resident of Mildmay for many years. There are three brothers surviving, George of Mildmay, John of Orillia and Robert of Port Carling. There are two sisters, Mrs. Chas. Gibbs of Houghton, Mich., and Mrs. Jas. Wallace of Chicago. There are three sons, Harry W. of Berlin; Elmer L. of Houghton, Mich., and Stanley, who is in Ogden, Utah on the Denver and Rio Grande Railway. He is a U. S. veteran of the Philippine and Cuban wars.

      The remains will be brought to Berlin for burial, accompanied by the son Elmer, and daughter Mrs. Ed. Evans of Calumet. They will arrive to-morrow evening and the funeral will be held on Wednesday at 2.30 from the residence of Mr. H. W. Brown, Benton street to Mount Hope cemetery The New Record extends its condolences to the bereaved members of the family.
