  • Notes 
    • Death in the Poor House

      There died in the Poor House, Berlin, on Saturday last, Mrs. Thomas Frame, widow of the late Thomas Frame, at one time well known in Galt as the landlord of the old Union Hotel. The ups and downs of life are well illustrated in this death. For many years Mr. and Mrs. Frame were well to do and respected, but darker days came, the husband died and the widow drifted slowly into the poor house, there passing her last days in peace and quietness. Their only daughter was married to Mr. Samuel Burnett, and it will be remembered by many of the husband's young friends in those days, the shock of sorrow which was felt when the intelligence of her death, after but a short time of married life, reached them.
