But some appear to go swiftly onlv
in one direction and that was toward
the earth's centre. I saw oue young
man gliding sweetly along as though
lire was an sunshine, but the next
moment he looked as though he had
just passed through a steamboat ex
plosion. 1 saw a lady suddenly lose
bei center of gravity, and the floor hit
heron the chignon. I saw friends
gather around to console and sympa
thize until quiet a crowd surrounded
her, when, lot I saw a tall young man
draw near with trembling uncertain
strides, whose knees seemed as though
he were suffering from an attack of
the rickets. My intuitive nature com
prehended what was coming, but my
arm was powerless to stay the catas-
trophy. I saw this young man's long
litnos snoot suddenly forward richt to
ward this devoted crowd, and then he
disappeared amidst shouts, shrieks.

young man after being rescued from

TfUNER At his resiuei c iu Brock

Decetnht-r 10th, George N. Turner,

was one of a family of emit .
brothers and 2 sisters all of whom
survive him. Ho clerked for S.
Balleutine in Pt Huron for 8 years
during which time he made tho ac
quaintauce of Miss Katie -liowcrs
and they were married .in 1879. His
loving and devoted wife and Georgic
his son survive, him aud.f bitterly
mourn the loss of a kind husband
and affectionate father. Started in
business for himself at this place iu
1881 but on account of poor health
returned to Pt Huron for one year.
He afterwards came back here and
entered the employ of II. Wynian,
remaining one year, when he purch
ased the stock and started again for
himself. Deceased was always kind
hearted, true and pleasant to all, and
has won many warm friends in this
community who sadly mourn his
departure. He had suffered much
during the past few years but boro
it without a murmur. Although not
a member of any church he was a
professor of religion. The funeral
which took place at 2 o clock p. in.
on Friday at the M. E. church, was
largely attended by near relatives
and sympathizing friends. A num
ber of the members of. the Royal
Arcanum, of Pt Huron, to which
deceased belonged, were in
attendance and acted as pall bearers.
A beautiful floral piece, a letter "0,"
the emblem of the order, was furn
ished by the society. Hev. C. E.
Harris, pastor of the Habtist church
of Pt Huron, had charge of the re
ligious exercises, assisted by Revs.
A. J Holmes and II. II. Andrews.
He took lor his text ''What is your
life?" and preached a sound sermon
therefrom. Tho remains of the tie
ceased were intered in the Brockway
cemetery. The whole community
deeply sympathize with the sorrow
ing relatives in their sad bereave
ment. A Subscriber's Soliloquy.

For who would bear the pointed squibs

oft reflect upon the man who fails to

up in full, one year from date, by pay
