  • Notes 
    • Obituary
      It was with surprise and great regret that the people of Palmerston learned of the death of Colfax Oliver youngest son of Mr John Oliver which occurred early Saturday morning. Deceased had been all his life a resident of this town until about three years ago when having learned the print trade he was engaged on the staff of the newspaper at Niagara. For some time of late his health had been impaired. About the end of February he had an attack of neuralgia and came home to recuperate. Unfortunately his first illness in itself not very serious was aggravated by malarial fever and resulted fatally. The funeral held on Monday afternoon was conducted by Court Prince of Wales, C.O.F. of which deceased had been member and was largely attended. Besides the local brethren there were contingents from the Courts of Rothsay, Teviotdalye and Harriston. A beautiful wreath form the foresters's Court, a wreath from the Bicycle Club of Niagara of which he had been the President and other floral tributes from friends and schoolmates indicated the affection in which "Collie" was held by his friends and the general sorrow at his early death . The bereaved parents have the sympathy of all in their affliction. [1]
