  • Notes 
    • MR. ROBERT MIDDLEMISS was an esteemed Elder of the congregation for many years. He was also Superintendent of the Sunday School for a time. While the proof sheets of this volume were being read he was called away (December 1st, 1903). He had been seriously ill for nearly a year. While in health he was faithful in the discharge of his duty, regularly in his place at church and at the weekly prayer-meeting, and taking always a deep interest in the prosperity of the congregation. The handsome set of pulpit chairs was his gift to the new church. He was a good, godly, upright man, consistent and conscientious, retiring, and loving most the quiet and undemonstrative ways of the olden time. He was staid and staunch and sterling. We miss much these men of mark, and mourn their loss here, while we cannot but re-joice that they have safely arrived at home.
