      Death of Mr. Jacob Shupe

      An aged and esteemed citizen passed away on Tuesday, in the person of Jacob Shupe, of Victoria Avenue. Fifteen years had the deceased lived in Galt, his former home being in Preston and during that time he gained the respect and regard of all who knew him. He was for many years an employee of the Goldle-McCulloch Co., but latterly had worked for Clare Bros., Preston. He was a carpenter by trade and a skilled workman. He had been ailing for about a year, and during that period was unable to follow his calling. He appeared to be in better health the last two weeks, but it was only a temporary improvement, as he soon lost strength and finally succumbed to the malady with which he was afflicted. His widow and one son, Wellington, of this town, survive him. His other son died some years ago. The deceased, who was 74 years old, was a valued member of the Methodist Church, with which he had long been connected. A just man gone to his reward, may rightly be applied to the late Mr. Shupe, whose memory, as an upright, honest and God-fearing man, will not soon be forgotten. The funeral will take place from his late residence, at 2 o'clock on Thursday afternoon, to Mount View cemetery.
