The Passing of a Veteran.
William Goss (of Jas.), Torbay.

The many friends of Mr. William Goss, of Watson's Cove, Torbay, will be sorry to learn that he passed away on the evening of Sunday, the 24th instant. He was in his eighty-sixth year, and up to a couple of months ago was enjoying perfect health, and was active in everything that pertained to the welfare of the settlement of which he was one of the leaders. The late Mr. Goss was a splendid example of the type of fisherman that means so much to a community in which he lived. Industrious, honest and of marked intelligence, his sound judgement was freely sought and as freely given to many who sought his advice. He was foremost in anything of a public nature that concerned the interests of Torbay, and prominent in anything that tended to the welfare of the place. He had the comfort of the administration of the rites of the Catholic Church, of which he was a devoted member, and surrounded by his family his long life had a peaceful ending. Left to mourn the loss of an exemplary father are five daughters and two sons. His funeral takes place at Torbay this afternoon.
