Death of Mrs. T. J. Anderson A very wide circle of friends will hear with, regret of the death, of Mrs. Alice Anderson, wife of Mr. T. J. Anderson, dairyman, Bluff Point, which occurred very suddenly last night. Mrs. Anderson has been present at a meeting of the Bluff Point Progress Association, and proceeded home shortly before 11 o'clock. She was accompanied as far as the old butter factory by Messrs. MacDonald and Johnson, and she then, assured her escort she would be all right, as she had only three or four hundred yards to go. A little later Mr. Allan passed the spot, and found her lying on, the ground, and it appeared that she had not walked far after leaving Messrs. MacDonald and Johnson. He hurried to the house for assistance, and she was promptly carried home. A medical man was summoned, but his services were unavailing, death having taken place.

The deceased lady, who was 63 years of age, was born on the Greenough, her maiden name being Smith, her people having come out from England some time previously. An earnest worker in many good causes she was highly respected by all who knew her, and the greatest sympathy will be extended to her bereaved husband and five daughters. She had appeared to be in her usual health, but some time ago she suffered from an affection of the heart.

The funeral will take place to-morrow morning at the Methodist Cemetery.
