Death of a Bright Young Man
The death of John Clair Rawson, a bright young man from Saskatchewan, occurred on New Year's eve at the home of his uncle, Councillor D. A. Henderson, Main Street. The young man enlisted last May in the 232nd Battalion at Rosetown, Saskatchewan, and spent several months in camp at Camp Hughes, Manitoba. He contracted rheumatism and his ailment was so severe that he was discharged. In the hope that a trip east would be beneficial his parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Rawson, accompanied him to Acton, arriving the Saturday before Christmas. He gradually grew worse, however, his heart being affected and he passed away on New Year's eve. Mr. and Mrs. John McGlaughlin, his uncle and aunt, also accompanied him east. The young man was greatly disappointed at not being able to complete his military training and do his bit in the war. The funeral will be held to-morrow at one o'clock and the remains will be taken to Rosetown, Sask., for interment, leaving by the 3.28 train east.
