      Nephew of Mrs. J. A. Manson Was Buried in Ayr Cemetery on Sunday Afternoon


      Following a long illness, resulting from an injury while on active service in Canada two years ago, Lieut. George Lambert Ross died in Ottawa Civic Hospital on Friday. Lieut. Ross was born in Rapid City, Man., the son of Mrs. G. B. Ross (nee Nellie Anderson of Ayr) and the late Mr. Ross. He enlisted about three years ago in Yorkton, where he was then living, and about a year later was severely injured while carrying out his duties as an instructor of artillery. He spent much time at Ayr with relatives and word of his death will sadden a wide circle of friends in this vicinity.

      Surviving are his mother, Mrs. G. B. Ross of Yorkton, Sask.; two brothers, Capt. Wm. A. Ross, in England, and John Stewart Ross of Ottawa; an aunt, Mrs. John A. Manson of Ayr, and an uncle, Dr. J. Marshall Anderson of Galt.

      The funeral service was held on Sunday afternoon at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. John A. Manson, Ayr, with interment in Ayr Cemetery. The service was conducted by Rev. A. A. Steed, and the pallbearers were; P. L. Gourlay, J. C. Kyle, Edward Whitson, John Henderson, E. S. Strachan and George
