    • Death of Mr. Hugh Baxter

      A wide section of the township of Blenheim is in deep mourning this week on account of the death of one of its best known and most popular sons, in the person of Hugh McIntyre Baxter, who passed away rather unexpectedly on Tuesday morning after an illness of only about ten days, his trouble being tonsillitis and complications. The deceased was still a young man, being in his 38th year, and though not of a robust constitution, should ordinarily have been good for many years to come. An all-wise Providence willed it otherwise, and though friends may mourn, they also bow in submission. The deceased was born on the Baxter homestead, 10th Con., Blenheim, and having lived there or in the neighborhood all his life was west known in the community as a man of moral habits, religious principles and neighborly instincts.
      As a member of a musical family, he was partial to the violin, and was leader of the popular organization known as the "Baxter Orchestra." About 7 years ago he was joined in wedlock with Miss Audrey Landreth of Ayr, who, with two children (Richard and Elizabeth), survives, together with his mother, two brothers and five sisters, namely: Mrs. McKenzie Edgar, Lindsay; Mrs. Jarius Maus, South Dumfries; Isabel, Margaret, Jean, Richard and James at home. The late Mr. Baxter was a Liberal in politics and a Presbyterian, being a member of Knox United Church, Ayr. The funeral takes place from deceased's late home, Lot 7, Con. 11, Blenheim, this (Thursday) afternoon, at 2;30 o'clock, to the Ayr cemetery.
