JOHN RYAN, SPANIARD'S BAY
There passed away here on Tuesday, the 13th inst., John, the second son of Mr. and Mrs. Edward RYAN. The deceased was only twenty-two years of age. Four years ago it was seen that he was not in his usual robust health, though it was thought the matter was not serious, and that home care would make him all right again in short time, everything it was possible to do for him was done. It was all to no purpose. The end, which had been looked forward to for some time, came on Tuesday morning last. Jack was a general favorite among those of his own age, and his manly disposition won the confidence and respect of people of older years. The funeral took place to the R. C. Church on Thursday morning. Requiem Mass was celebrated by the Rev. Father DINN, after which all that was mortal of our young friend was laid to rest. His parents, also a brother and a sister are left to mourn their sad loss, and these avail themselves of the opportunity to thank their many friends here and elsewhere for wreaths, messages of sympathy, and the various acts of kindness shown then in the time of their bereavement
