Notes for Thomas J Furness:

By the passing away of Thomas J. Furness, late of Vernon, whose tragic death has been already referred to in the press, the community and province have lost an estimable friend and citizen.

The late Mr. Furness by his genial and kindly disposition endeared himself to all who knew him. He was for many years connected with the Department of Customs and Excise and here he displayed those same gentlemanly qualities which mad him the friend of all. He was also a very efficient farmer, and here to his efforts were crowned with success-having at the time of his demise, one of the finest properties in that section of the country. Though, at the time of his death, in his seventy- fifth year, yet he was beloved by old and young alike.

The late Mr. Furness leaves to mourn his loss the following sisters: Mrs. Wellington Hume of Iris, Mrs. Duncan Mathieson, Vernon River and Mrs. Anthony Johnson of McDougall's New Brunswick. Also one daughter, Mrs. Albert Drake, Millview, and two sons, George W.C. of Toronto and Wilfred L. on the homestead at Vernon, besides a large number of more distant relatives and friends.

The funeral, which was very largely attended, was held on Thursday, September the 5th, and was conducted by his pastor, Rev. Henry Pierce, assisted by Rev. Mr. Grant of Winsloe and Rev. Mr. Campbell of Pownal. During the service Mrs. George R. McLeod sang very effectively "My Ain Countree". The pallbearers were Messrs. W.A. Jenkins, Osbert Enman, J.J. McGillivary, A.J. Henry, Wallace Drake and D.J. MacDonald.

"I watched a sail until it dropped from sight Over the rounding sea.

A gleam of white, a last far flashed farewell, and like a thought

Slipped out of mind, it was vanished and was not.

Yet to the helmsman, standing at the wheel,

Broad seas still stretched beneath the gliding keel.

Disaster? Change? He felt no slightest sign.

Nor dreamed he of that far horizon line.

So may it be perchance, when down the tide Our dear Ones vanish.

Peacefully they glide on level seas, Nor mark the unknown bound,

We call it death-to them 'tis life beyond"
