Elsewhere in the same paper: On Monday morning, after a severe struggle for nearly a fortnight with the prevailing influenza, our much esteemed townsman Walter Ferrier died at his residence on Gore Street at the age of 36 years. His death was the source of general sorrow in town where his genial and agreeable manners and his sterling integrity were known and appreciated. He was buried in Elmwood Cemetery on Wednesday afternoon under the auspices of A.O.U. Workmen Society of which he was a member. Mr. Ferrier conducted a prosperous harness business here for some years and was an honorable businessman. He was on the Board of Managers of St. Andrew's (Presbyterian) Church and from his religious convictions was well prepared to die. He leaves a widow and child. Mr. Ferrier held life assurance in the Workmen's Society, Canada Life, for $5,000.
