Obituary

J.E. Parker, station agent at Whiting, died at his home in that town on Wednesday morning at about 1 o'clock. He appeared well in the evening, but about 11 o'clock he was stricken with paralysis, which rendered him unconscious until a short time before his death. Mr. Parker was a man of many sterling qualities, and prominent in the community in which he lived. He was a member of Simonds Lodge, F. & A.M., of Shoreham, and will be buried with Masonic honors, the funeral taking place this afternoon at 2 o'clock. A number of St. Paul's Lodge of Brandon, will attend the ceremonies. The deceased was an uncle of Mrs. C. E. Savory and Mrs. C.K. Savory, and a cousin of Mrs. Lorison Smith. He leaves a wife and two sons, besides a large circle of friends to mourn his loss.
