      DEATH OF MRS. McDONALD.
      The death of Mrs. James McDonald, who passed away on Friday last, removes one of the oldest settlers of this neighborhood. Born in Scotland in 1819, she came to Canada with her brother, the late Mr. Donald Crerar, in 1842, and couple of years later was married to Mr. McDonald, who survives her. The two settled at once on the farm where they have lived ever since, a couple of miles west of this village, near Nithburg. She leaves a family of nine children-four boys and five girls-as follows : Mrs. A. McGillawee, at Hampstead ; Miss Kate, at home ; James, Alex. (councillor) and John, on farms in North Easthope; Peter, in Estavan, N.W. T. ; Mrs. G. H. Ballard, Linwood, Mrs. G. Thompson, Millbank. Deceased has been a consistent member of the Hampstead Presbyterian church ever since it was organized and her pure, kindly nature won for her the love of all who knew her. The funeral occurred on Monday, a large concourse following the remains to their last resting place in Hampstead cemetery.
