    • Funeral of Agnes Melvin - A large number of sorrowing friends and relatives attended the funeral of the late Agnes D. Melvin, which took place to the Ayr Cemetery on Thursday afternoon, and the scene was extremely touching as the last sad rites were performed. The Watson factory closed down, as well as a number of other business places, and the gathering included representatives from most of the families of the village. The services were in charge of Rev. G. I. Stephenson, while the following young men acted as pallbearers: Messrs. A. Blancher, R. Bain, J. Wright, G. Johnson, L. Nickerson and H. Dennis. The floral tributes were magnificent and bore silent testimony to the high esteem in which deceased was held. Among those sending contributions were: Female employees, Hecker-H-O Co.; male-employees, Hecker-H-O Co.; head. office, Hecker-H-O Co.; Bowling Club; Watson Co. employees; C.O.F.; B & B employees of C. P. R.; teachers and pupils, Ayr Con. school ; Ladies' Aid and Young People's Society, Methodist United church ; Ayr News staff ; as well as many from friends, relatives and neighbors.
