Thos. Cooper Dead
Pioneer of Cooper's Falls Passes Away

A real pioneer passed away in the death of Mr. Thomas Cooper, of Cooper's Falls, on Monday, in his 83rd year ... Mr. Cooper organized the first Sunday school in the Township, and No. 4 school section, was a Township Councilor and a school Trustee, organized the Agricultural Society and was Secretary-Treasurer for eleven years; was Postmaster for twenty-seven years and conducted a general store for thirty-three years. In fact the life of the community centered on this vigorous and enterprising old pioneer.

Emma Cooper who was one year his junior survives him, with four sons and two daughters. They are Mrs. John Fox, Regina; Albert Lawrence Cooper, Cooper's Falls; Frederick Leonard Cooper, Ramona; Arthur Buckland Cooper, Saskatchewan, Mrs. J.K. Bailey, Severn Bridge and William Edward Cooper, Cooper's Falls. Next March, Mr. and Mrs. Cooper would have celebrated their sixtieth anniversary of their wedding. Mr. Cooper took an active and intelligent interest, not only in municipal affairs, but in national politics, and was a staunch Conservative.

The funeral will take place this afternoon, the service being held in St. George's church.

He was the son of William Cooper and Elizabeth Buckland.
