Mrs. Jed Bessette Dead

Mrs Jed Bessette who resided on the Georgia road died yesterday and her funeral will take place at the church of the Holy Guardian Angels at 2 o'clock tomorrow afternoon.

Funeral of Mrs Jed Bessette was held from the church of the Holy Guardian Angels at 2:30 o'clock yesterday afternoon, the rev. A L Desauliers assistant rector of the church officiating. The burial was in Mount Calvary Cemetery.

Hearse demolished by Runaway.
During the funeral service of Mrs. Jed Bessette at the Holy Guardian Angels Church yesterday afternoon, the bridle on one of the horses got caught over the pole of the hearse and the horses became frightened and unmanageable. The horses were soon under control, but not until the hearse had been badly damaged. The glass being broken out and the pole broken. Fortunately the undertaker, Rocheford and Chagnon had another hearse which was procured before conclusion of the service and the burial was not delayed by the accident.
