  • Notes 
    • DEATH OF MRS. JAMES DRYDEN - Ever since her paralytic seizure, somewhere about a year ago, the health of this long resident of North Dumfries, and more recently of Galt, has sensibly declined, and although at last the end came somewhat unexpectedly, it was obvious for months that it could not be long delayed. Quietly and resignedly she passed away on Monday morning last, having by but four months, entered her 61st year. Mrs. Dryden was a daughter of the late Jared Swan, her sister, Mrs. Andrew Turnbull, being now, we believe, the only surviving member of that family. Mrs. Dryden leaves a husband and nine children, her eldest son, Jared, it will be remembered, dying last year. In all the walks of life the deceased lady discharged her duty faithfully and uprightly and was beloved by all who knew her. Of her family two are now in Manitoba and Mr. James Dryden, Jr., will soon remove there, having accepted the position of stenographer to Lieut.-Governor Schultz. Her daughters are Mrs. Joseph Wrigley and Mrs. John Taylor, with four residing with their aged and bereaved father in Galt.
