LAID AT REST

Funeral of the Late John Teague Took Place This Afternoon

The remains of the late John Teague were laid to rest this afternoon, the funeral taking place from the family residence, 33 Fernwood road, at 2:30 o'clock.
There was a large attendance, including the Mayor, council and city officials and members of the Masonic order, of which Mr. Teague was a member. Services were conducted at the house and the Metropolitan Methodist church, where Rev. Elliott S. Rowe impressively alluded to the exemplary life that has been closed. Few men were more highly esteemed in the community than the sterling citizen who has just passed away, and those who knew him were unanimous in their sincere tributes to his worth. There were many beautiful floral offerings.
The pallbearers were: Mayor Hayward, A. McKeown, W.W. Northcott, R.S. Oddy, Dr. E. Hall and E. Crow Baker.
The city flag has been drooping at half mast out of respect to memory of the deceased.
