  • Notes 
    • St. Clements - Joseph Beland, a Frenchman, of Sillery, Quebec, in the employ of Wilson Bros.. Woodstock, timbermen met death by accident here on Saturday the 28th inst. He with one of his fellow workmen had just cut down a tree in the bush where they have lately been engaged when in some unaccountable way unseen by anyone he was struck on the head by what is supposed to have been a stray limb. The blow was heavy one as the condition of the deceased's head showed. He was speedily taken to rooms in the Royal hotel here where after being unconscious 3 hours he passed into eternity, medical aid being of no avail. The event has cast a deep gloom over the village as in his months stay here the deceased as a quiet und peaceable citizen has made himself liked and respected by all who knew him. The remains were taken by train to his home in Quebec province on Monday. The deceased's fellow workmen resumed work on Tuesday.
