1911 Newspaper Look-ups
The St. John's Daily News


Wed. Jan. 25, 1911

As my time was limited, I was only able to get a few entries for this year.


On January 24th a very pretty and quiet wedding took place at the residence of the bride's parents, 66 Lime St., when J.N. McDONALD, M.D., son of the late J.H. MCDONALD, barrister, of Shelourne, Nova Scotia, was united in the Holy Bonds of Matrimony by Rev. Mons. ROACHE, to Miss Phoebe MORRIS, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Geo. MORRIS, of this city. The bride was attired in a pretty costume of cream broadcloth with hat trimmed with ostrich plumes. She was attended by her sister, Miss Annie MORRIS, who wore a costume of tabac brown. The groom was supported by Mr. S.A. RIGBY of the Bank of Montreal. After refreshments were partaken of, the happy couple joined the express for their future home, Curling, Bay of Islands. The bride wore a pretty travelling costume of wine color cloth, trimmed with velvet, and hat to match. They were the recipients of very many useful and pretty presents. The "News" extends congratulations.

Thur. Mar. 2, 1911


one of our best known mariners, died at 3 p.m. yesterday, after an illness of 5 weeks. Deceased had been suffering from heart failure for some time, but unknown to his friends, and was conveyed to the hospital a few weeks ago for special treatment. All possible was done, but only temporary relief could be given and death came yesterday. Capt. McDONALD had reached the age of 65 years, and up to a short while ago was actively engaged at his vocation. Three sons, Peter, Augustus and Andrew, are left to mourn, to whom we extend sympathy.

Tue. Mar. 7, 1911


The announcement of the death of Mr. J.J. PITTMAN, Barrister and Solicitor, came as a great surprise, as only a few days ago he was apparently in robust health. Mr. PITTMAN was a man of exceptional ability, and, at one time, the door of opportunity seemed to be wide open to him. He was a native of Lamaline, where his aged parents died a few years ago, and where his brother, Mr. C.C. PITTMAN, J.P., Collector of Customs, still lives. Mr. PITTMAN represented his native district of Burin in the Legislature, and since then, unsuccessfully contested St. John's East. Among his many gifts was a trenchant pen, a fluent delivery, an artist's skill, and an analytical mind. Death has been very busy in our midst of late, sparing neither young nor old. In James J. PITTMAN it has taken one, whose mentality and physique seemed to promise length of years, another illustration of the uncertainty of life. To his relatives and friends we extend sympathy.

Mon, Apr. 24, 1911
