  • Notes 
    • "Alan A. Mark, son of Mr. Samuel Mark, of Huron Road, one of Wilmot's most successful farmers, called here on Monday last in the interests of the well known firm of the J.D. King Co., wholesale manufacturers of fine boots and shoes, Toronto. Mr. Mark, Jr., is a very successful traveller having worked up a large business by his persevering and gentlemanly habits. In 1885 during the North West rebellion, while No. 3 Co. 29th Battalion was practicing here under Capt. Jonathan Cook, now of Berlin, Alan then a boy of 14 offered his services, as he was bound to be a soldier, he signed the service roll, and a red coat was given him, which his parents made him bring back next day, as he was so young. A few years afterwards he again joined No. 3 Co. and attended the Military school at London, where he took first class certificates. He spent a year at London, and was complimented as a very efficient graduate, whom the officials were very sorry to part with. This short military career our young friend claims was the stepping stone between the farm and his present mercantile position, he was determined to become a commercial traveller for a first-class house, and he has secured his desire, solely accomplished by his untiring and persevering efforts."
