Death of Mrs. J. BURNS

A sad ending to the festivities of Old Home Week occurred on Saturday evening, when one of the lady visitors, Mrs. J. BURNS of South Boston died at the Railway Station, after returning from the excursion to Octagon Castle. Her demise was quite sudden and unexpected. At the Castle she appeared to be in the best of health, and when she joined the train there was nothing amiss with her; but Waterford Bridge had only been reached when she was taken suddenly ill and by the time the station was reached she had become unconscious. Dr. LEMON and Rev. Dr. KITCHEN were quickly summoned, but before the arrival of the former life was extinct. The cause of death was apoplexy. Mrs. BURNS was formally a Miss KELLY, of this city and lived on Bond Street . Seventeen years ago she went to the States and married in South Boston . The remains were taken to the residence of Mr. J. MURPHY, on New Gower Street , and her husband was cabled the sad intelligence of her death.

Charles W. LAKE , aged 26, of Fortune, was drowned from the schr. Ronald B on Wednesday night, off Cape Bonavista , by the main-boom swinging over and knocking him overboard. The vessel was brought to and cruised around for a time, but no sign of the unfortunate man was seen, and it supposed he was stunned by the blow and sank immediately. LAKE was a married man, but leaves no children. The vessel was bound here from Botwoodville with a load of lumber for D. THISTLE.


The City

Thomas LEE, aged 14, of Pope Street , lost his life on Sunday evening by drowning. With some companions he visited Morey & Co's wharf to go for a swim, but while his companions went in the water, he started to climb up some skids about 15 feet high, erected there permanently for the use of vessels discharging. He reached the top when suddenly he was seen to fall into the water and sink. The accident was seen from H.M.S. Calypso, and a petty officer with Messrs. J. BOONE and HARVEY were quickly on the scene with a boat. There was no sign of the lad, however, and they started to jig for the body, which after a few minutes, was recovered and conveyed to the morgue, where Dr. KENNEDY examined it. Blood flowed freely from the ears and nose and it is though that as the lad fell he struck the wharf and was rendered unconscious. The news of their boy's death was abruptly told Mr. and Mrs. LEE by some of his companions and they were prostrated with grief.

Death's Doings

R.A. BARNES - We regretfully note the death of Mr. Richard A. BARNES which occurred at his home, Queen's Road, on Wednesday last. He had been ill from pleurisy for less than a fortnight, but up to the end hopes were entertained for his recovery. For years Mr. BARNES was book-keeper at Duder's but more recently he had been in the employ of Messrs. T. & M. WINTER. He was a member of the Masonic fraternity, and that body was represented at his funeral, which took place on Friday afternoon.

Samuel MCNEILL - Samuel MCNEILL was not an old man, though he had reached the three score years and ten, but trouble had laid its hard hand upon him and the loss of his son a few months ago came as a blow unto the death. Mr. MCNEILL's career was a very interesting one. He was born on the Labrador 72 years ago, and there he lived for many years, becoming a proficient in the Esquimaux tongue. In St. John's he has on several occasions, some important ones, acted as interpreter, and some time ago translated several chapters of the Holy Writings into the Esquimaux tongue for the mission work carried on there. Mr. MCNEILL was a member of the British Society , and for some years had been tyler of the Tasker Lodge, A.F & A.M. , R.S. Guards of honour from both bodies followed his remains from his late residence on Merry-Meeting Road to his final resting place in the beautiful Church of England Cemetery.

Hector FRASER - The death of Mr. Hector FRASER took place on Thursday last, not unexpectedly. The feebleness of age had been much in evidence during recent months, but to the last Mr. FRASER retained his faculties. He passed away weighted beneath the burden of his years, a peaceful transition from time to the Great Beyond. The younger generation will remember little of Mr. FRASER. At The Post Office his work of late did not bring him into contact with the general public. The older generation will remember him as a man of earnestness and activity, who was every ready to push forward all good works. He was the eldest son of the Late Rev. Mr. FRASER, Presbyterian Minister of this city, and amongst his brothers were Dr. FRASER of Bay Roberts, J.O. FRASER, the late postmaster General, and J. McL. FRASER, Commission Merchant of this city. Mr. Hector FRASER was a Past Master of Avalon Lodge, A.F. & A.M., and was a Warrant member and first Master of Royal Oak Lodge, No. 22 O.O.A., the first Orange Lodge instituted in Newfoundland . He died in his 85th year.

Mrs. G. H. TAYLOR - Death was ____ last week with young and middle-aged and old alike. Amongst the aged who bowed to the final call was Mrs. Maria TAYLOR, mother of the well known draper, Mr. John W. TAYLOR of New Gower Street . For some years she had been confined to the house, bit it is only a few months since she took to her bed where she quietly breathed her life into the larger life beyond. Her death was like the stopping of a clock, the pendulum of life swinging slowly and more slowly until imperceptibly its movement ceases. Mrs. TAYLOR was the widow of the late George Hayward TAYLOR of Carbonear, a well known planter of that town who carried on the fisheries at Cape Charles . She survived her husband for nearly 23 years, dying at the patriarchal age of 88. Her remains were conveyed from the residence of her son, Mr. J.W. TAYLOR, 40 LeMarchant Road , to the station, early on Saturday morning, and thence to Carbonear where she was interred by her husband's side. Many of her relatives and family friends followed the hearse to the station, and amongst those who went through to Carbonear to attend the funeral were Mr. J.W. TAYLOR, Mr. Samuel FOGWELL, son-in-law, and Messrs. George JOYCE, W.F. JOYCE and Guy TAYLOR, grandsons of the deceased. Mr. Eugene Taylor, her other surviving son, went to Carbonear the previous day to make the necessary arrangements for the funeral.

Thomas M. MITCHELL - The announcement that Thomas MITCHELL was dead came as a thunderclap amid a summer sky. Only a few hours before he had been seen upon the streets in health and strength. On Wednesday night he went to bed as well as ever but ere Thursday's sun had risen he had exchanged the mortal for immortality. About midnight the family were aroused to learn of his sudden and fatal illness. Rev. Father FYME and Dr. KEEGAN were immediately summoned as well as Dr. MITCHELL, son of the deceased. All that could be done was done, but without avail, so far as the things of time were concerned, for in less than an hour the spirit had passed away. Mr. Thomas MITCHELL was the eldest son of the late Inspector MITCHELL for many years head of the Newfoundland Constabulary, and was born in St. John's in January 1843. At 14 he entered upon a commercial career, and before he had reached his twentieth year had established a bakery which developed and extended into the large and important enterprise so well known to citizens of St. John's . In public life Mr. MITCHELL held many important positions notably in Municipal matters, holding the position of Chairman of the Council for from two to three years. But above all the memory and personality of Thomas MITCHELL must stand identified with his work for the younger generation........Mr. Mitchell leaves a widow and daughters, and one son, Dr. Timothy M. MITCHELL, of this city. Their loss, severe as it is, is shared by the whole city, and blessed by the inseparable memory of a good man's life.
