    • Victim of Infantile Paralysis
      Marion Gladstone Succumbs on Thursday to Dread Childhood Disease - The sympathy of the entire community goes out to Mr. and Mrs. Robert Gladstone in the loss of their eldest daughter, Marion, aged 11 years, whose death occurred in the early hours of Thursday morning from that dread scourge of childhood, infantile paralysis. She had been slightly unwell only a few days and her illness had been diagnosed as the dread paralysis only the day previous, when the doctor had been called. A supply of serum was immediately rushed from Toronto and administered to the small patient, but without avail.

      Marion was a great favorite with her playmates of the Ayr Public School, where she had recently been successful in passing her examinations from the junior third class to the senior third. She also attended the Sabbath School of Knox United Church. Besides her sorrowing parents, she is survived by a younger brother, Billy, and a small sister, Elspeth. The funeral was held privately on Thursday afternoon to Ayr Cemetery.
