The deceased, who was 33 years of age, had for fourteen years in the West. A slight injury sustained at work which he did not consider serious slowly developed into what proved to be a terrible malady and yielded not to treatment of specialists East and West. For the past fourteen months he patiently suffered intense pain, coming back to the paternal home last Christmas to die. Besides his parents he is survived by five brothers and two sisters at home, the rest residing in different parts of the West. His patience under trying affliction, as well his earnest preparation for the life beyond, will serve as an edifying spiritual example, not only to the family, but to the fond neighbors who learned to love him from boyhood. May his soul rest in peace.5

    Springfield, Antigonish County

    At Springfield, Ant. Co., on Thursday morning, March 11th, 1909, Roderick Joseph, beloved son of John McPherson (Ban), of that place. Though only twenty years of age, he had learned the trade of bricklaying, and passed the last two years in San Francisco, Cal. Last fall he returned to his native home here, in failing health, with the hope of recuperating, but alas, despite medical treatment and kind attendance of fond parents, death claimed a submissive victim. Besides his parents, three sisters and seven brothers, four of whom are in Alaska are left to mourn the early demise of an affectionate brother and dutiful son. Frequent reception of the sacraments, and the final consolations of the Church shortly before the end, made his death edifying and happy. On Saturday morning, the 13th, after a Requiem High Mass, the interment took place in South River Cemetery. May his soul rest in peace.5
