Yesterday there passed away one of the early settlers in the person of Mrs. Mary Reed, wife of the late Nathaniel Reed, of Glanford. She was born on Feb. 1, 1807, in Suffolk county, England, and was married on May 20, 1828, to her late husband, with whom she lived for nearly 64 years, until death parted them. They sailed for Canada in May, 1830, cleared their spot and erected their shanty in the gore of Toronto, county of Peel. The roof was of bark, the chimney of sticks and mud, the door was completely built of wood without screw or nail. This in time gave place to a log house, and it in turn to a brick one. They sold the farm, which had increased in value from a government grant to $72 per acre, in 1855, and moved to Glanford, living a retired life and enjoying the fruits of their hard labour until Mr. Reed died in April, 1892. Mrs. Reed then removed to her youngest daughter’s home in Saltfleet, where she died. She became a member of the Methodist church in 1837, and lived the life of a devoted Christian up to the time of her death. Many will long remember her Christian character and cherish in their hearts a kindly feeling towards her for the loving advice which she often gave. She leaves two daughters and one son to mourn for her, two sons and two daughters having gone before. As she said, “I have more of the family to welcome me on the other shore than to mourn for me here.”

CALDER - At his late residence, Hamilton reservoir, Barton, on Thursday, April 11, 1895, William Calder, aged 66 years. Funeral Sunday at 3 PM. A special train will leave the H.G. & B. Railway station at 2:30 pm sharp, leaving Reservoir for return at 3:10. Friends will please accept this intimation.


   In the death of Wm. Calder, of the reservoir, the city has lost an old and faithful employee. It is but fitting that the city hall flag should fly at half mast in respect to the memory of a man who has for so many years done his duty so satisfactorily. Mr. Calder died early Thursday evening, and the sad news telephoned to the city was a double shock, for none of his friends even knew that he had been seriously ill. To a surgical operation on Saturday last is attributed his death. This was performed at the house, and after it was over he was left in a much weakened condition. His wife and daughters did not, however, think his condition was serious until Thursday, when he became unconscious, and shortly after five o’clock life left his pain-racked frame.

   Mr. Calder was born in Cummingstone, Aberdeenshire, on Feb. 14, 1829, and was therefore 66 years old. He came to Canada in 1851, serving with Kerr & McKenzie, dry goods merchants of London, until 1859, when he was appointed to the position he occupied at the time of his death. When he came to the reservoir premises everything was wild and uncultured. With an eye for the beautiful, Mr. Calder planned and worked, finally transforming the rough, natural ground into the beautiful spot it is today.

A reference was made in it to an occasion when he had bought some poison and that his wife accused him of intending to use it on her. This development, he said, would show how false was the charge and he had used the poison now to end his own existence. His troubles he attributed to sickness and drink.

 

LUSH (Peterborough) - Thos. Lush, a wellknown and respected citizen, died last evening from blood poisoning which came in a peculiar way.

When the doctors were called in on Thursday, the inoculation from the bite was throughout the whole system, and notwithstanding every possible means were taken, death resulted.

The children left their grandmother’s house shortly after to visit an uncle on Murray street. They were returning when the accident happened.

This she did, but not until the car was too near to pass in front of it. Her movement was so rapid and so unexpected that the motorman who saw her first on the north side of the track had no time to stop his car though he did his best.

RODEHOUSE - Over two months ago, a girl named Kate Rodehouse, whose home is near Caledonia, went to the city hospital and there gave birth to a child. The young woman was apparently friendless, about 18 years of age and unattractive in appearance. When dismissed, she went out in the streets with her child, lonely and deserted.

But while the Bielby’s kept their part of the bargain, the girl did not keep hers and for some weeks she provided not a cent for its keep. Then after the Steven street people had consulted the police in the matter and some action had been taken, the mother , about ten days ago, came and took the child away.

A doctor was sent for as soon as the mistake was discovered but too late to be of any use as the poison had already done its deadly work.

Mr. Morden was a native of West Flamborough. He moved into Hamilton forty years ago and estab­lished the Dundurn Hotel on York street which he managed for ten years.

RIDDELL (London) June 13 - Robert Riddell, a highly respected resident of concession 2, Westminster, was found by Mrs. Elizabeth Beatty, a sister, hanging from a tree near the woods.

Life was extinct. Scattered about on the ground were a lot of small branches which had been cut from the lower portion of the tree and everything indicated that Riddell had stood on the fence near the tree, tied the rope around a stout limb and placed the noose over his head and jumped. The rope, which was considerably larger than a clothes line, had been drawn tightly but had not cut the flesh. The body was cut down and Dr. J. B. Campbell held an inquest. The remains were viewed and evidence by Mrs. Beatty and several others taken. It went to show that Riddell had been despondent ever since the death of his daughter last winter from consumption. A verdict was returned the deceased came to his death by hanging while temporarily insane. In the clothes of the deceased, who was 57 years of age, was found a note to Mrs. Riddell bidding her goodbye, asking forgiveness and stating that he could not help committing the rash act.

Funeral from his son’s residence, no. 585 King street west tomorrow (Tuesday) morning at 8:30 o’clock to St. Joseph’s church, thence to the Holy Sepulchre cemetery. Friends and acquaintances kindly accept this intimation.

   Patrick B. Hennessey, one of the most expert locksmiths in Canada, died here yesterday of Bright’s disease after a long illness. He was born in Wexford, Ireland, in 1845, and came to Hamilton with his parents the following year. He learned the trade of locksmith and became very expert in the business, it being claimed that he could pick the lock of almost any safe or vault in existence. He had plenty of opportunity to display his ability in this respect, for whenever a safe lock got out of order, or a bank time lock refused to open at the proper hour, Mr. Hennessey was summoned to open the receptacle of wealth, and never once failed to do so. His services were in demand all over this part of the province. It is claimed that he originated the idea of the time lock nearly twenty years ago. It has often been remarked that, possessing such peculiar ability in his business, Mr. Hennessey might have turned it to account in making himself wealthy had he ever yielded to the temptation to use his experience in an improper way, but he was a man of sterling honesty and integrity, and, though not overburdened with this world’s goods, he would have scorned the idea of enriching himself by other than legitimate means.

   The deceased leaves a family of seven - two of whom are grown up. The funeral will take place tomorrow at 8:30 from St. Joseph’s church.

He at once called in a doctor, who gave it as his opinion that she had been dead for some hours and that heart failure was the trouble. It seems that she usually sleeps on the lounge when her husband is away from home and probably died during the night. She was about 60 years of age and was downtown on Friday afternoon.

FAWCETT (Brampton, Ont.) June 18 - This evening, James Fawcett, aged 61, living in John street, sat down on the edge of the bed and deliberately shot himself.

There was nobody in the house at the time and nobody heard the report of the gun. Mrs. Fawcett, who had been in the neighbour’s house, was the first to discover the awful deed.

   Fawcett was a man who had lived about the county for forty years and was well known in Peel ans West York. He had been unwell, and lack of employment, together with an alleged financial difficulty with his late employers, made him despondent.
