      Death of Mr. Isaac Shupe.
      The following regarding the death of Mr. Isaac Shupe was accidently omitted last week.
      After an illness of several months, Mr. Isaac Shupe passed away on Sunday morning, May 23rd, 1909, at his residence on Simcoe street, in his 74th year. Deceased was born at Waterloo, Ont., and came to Newmarket 40 years ago. From the manufacturer's point of view he was regarded as one of the best selling agents in Canada. Not long after coming to Newmarket he married Miss Anne Thieresa Prest who with three daughters-Mrs. S. A. Proctor, Rossi and Pauline-and three sons-Frank, Claude and Robert, survive. In the early eighties Mr. Shupe, together with his brother-in-law, Mr. Robert D. Prest, went to Moose Jaw, Sask., and opened up the first hotel there known as "The Moose" but owing to the many difficulties in getting supplies into a new unsettled country, they only remained a short time, and after selling out returned to Newmarket. Mr. Shupe then moved with his wife and family to Brandon, Man., where he engaged in the hotel business again for four years and after the rebellion of 1885, settled in Parkdale, but not long afterwards gravitated to the old home-town, Newmarket, where he family have since resided while he continued the agency business all over Ontario and Quebec.
      The funeral took place on Tuesday afternoon and owing to the very low condition of Mrs. Shupe, was conducted privately by Rev. J. W. Blackler, rector of St. Paul's church. The pall-bearers were the three sons also Messrs. S. A. Proctor, H. V. Denne and C. Lloyd. Those from a distance were Dr. and Mrs. McQueen, Freelton; Mr. Charlie Lloyd, Stratford; Mrs. Thorpe, Philadelphia, Pa.; and the following from Toronto: --Mrs. Ferson, Mrs. E. Plaxton, Mrs. P. E. Durst, Miss Sykes, Mrs. E. Clark, Mr. Nash, Mr. E. A. McKenzie. Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Sleigh. The remains were interred in the Newmarket Cemetery.
