      MODERNIZED BUILDING

      About 15 years ago he purchased the Windsor Hotel building and has operated the business since that time. Throughout his tenure he made many improvements to the building and in recent years completely modernized the establishment.

      Keenly interested in sports and also in public affairs he was a popular figure in the Twin City, making ? friends to whom announcement of his sudden death will come as a shock.

      He was particularly well-known in the city and in many sections of the province as organizer of Charlie Bruder's Band, a musical organization which he outfitted and whose services he frequently placed at the disposal of local organizations for picnics and other gatherings.

      FUNERAL NOT SET
