CREWSONS CORNERS Another death that cast a gloom over the community last week was that of Wesley Kingsbury, who passed away at his home here early Wednesday morning in his twentieth year. Wesley had been in poor health for a numnber of years from a malignant growth. About eighteen months ago he had a very bad attack with hemorrhages and for many weeks his life was despared of, but he revived and was able to go out this winter for the first time in many months. His complete recovery was never looked for and about three weeks ago he took ill again and gradually sank until death released him from his suffering which he had borne with Christian resignation. He was a general favorite with all his companions, a dutiful and loving son and brother. He was a regular attendant at the church and was for a number of years secretary of the Sunday School. He will be greatly missed in his home where his cheery disposition was ever uppermost despite his suffering. To his bereaved parents, brothers and sisters the sympathy of all is extended. The funeral on Friday to Acton cemetery was followed by a large concourse who desired to show their love and esteem for the one who had gone. The pall bearers were six companions. Orrie Lamb, John Dennis, Alex. Near, Neil Gordon, Robt. Farries and Ross Peterson.
