vision were acute. Her memory was active, she being able to recall with
much accuracy events of eighty-five years ago. She was conscious until
five minutes previous to passing away. She was one whom it was a
pleasure to meet. She was a devoted member of the Baptist Church at
Little River, her former home.

SAUBER of Hamilton, Mrs. J.W. ROSS of Oxford, Mrs. A.F. CASSIDEY of St.
John, Mrs. J.A. DOCASTER of Sapperton, B.C. and Mrs. G.D. PARSONS of

of age. Mr. TRERICE passed away eleven years ago. For sixty years the

tribute of the Christian life and character of the deceased, of whom he
had been, a life long friend of the family. He spoke from hr favorite
chapter, the 14th chapter of St. Johns Gospel. The hymns sang were,
Asleep in Jesus blessed Sleep, and O God, our Help in Ages Past.
Flowers were in profusion, adorning the casket, from sympathizing
friends. The remains were taken to East Leicester and laid beside her
