      Mrs. Hugh McKeown, 106 John Street South, yesterday received a sad intelligence that her daughter, Mrs. May Hibbard, of Stratford, had died in the Galt hospital. Deceased was between 22 and 23 years of age, and had been married just one month. The blow was a severe to the aged mother and the other members of the family. Deceased's husband W.P. Hibbard, is Western representative of A.A. Ayer & Co., Montreal. A few days ago he went to the Preston baths for treatment to relieve an attack of rheumatism. Mrs. Hibbard was induced to take some baths and she received a chill. Becoming seriously ill, she was removed to the Galt hospital where death came yesterday morning.

      Deceased was married in Stratford and made it her home. When residing in Hamilton she was an active worker in the W.P.S.C.E. of James Street Baptist church. Before her marriage deceased was connected with the Hamilton and Stratford offices of the Bell Telephone company. The funeral will take place here to-morrow afternoon at 2 o'clock.
