      The death occurred in Peterborough on Saturday of a native of Ayr, Edward C. Codling. He was a son of the late James Codling and Agnes Reid and lived here until he received his education. He later went to Galt where he was identified with the Maple Leaf Quartette, one of the foremost vocal groups of the era. He is survived by a daughter, Mrs. Chester Carson (Hester) of Peterborough; a sister, Mrs. Alfred Coles (Beatrice) of Port Colborne, and two grandchildren. The late Mr. Codling has several cousins in Ayr. Funeral service was held on Tuesday at Little's Funeral Home in Galt, with interment in Mount View Cemetery.
