THE LATE MRS. WAGSTAFF  (Pu Wished by request)  Mrs. Wagstaif, one of the most re  spected settlers in the districts, south  of Keremeos, where she has resided  with her family on her own ranch for  a number of years past, died in Penticton on Satuiday, December 9th,  after a long and painful illness, borne  with wonderful fortitude and Christian resignation. Her patience in her  sufferings was truly remarkable. -  The deceased lady won the respect  and esteem of her neighbors by reason  of her womanly capacity and excellent  good sense, joined with her ready  friendliness. She was one of the most  trusted friends of the well-beloved late  Rey. H. Irwin. "Fathei Pat," and  when lie was leaving the district in  orderto take the trip, from which he  never returned,he left, in Mrs. Wag-  stiiffs special care, his favorite horse  "Old Tom." This animal was one ot  -the most remarkably intelligent ever  known in the Similkameen, and shared with his master for years, with an  almost human sympathy, the adventures and hardships of that most devoted pioneer priest.  During Mrs. Wagstaff's long illness  she enjoyed the faithful and untiring  care of her daughter, Mrs. Sinclair,  and during the last few weeks, her  favorite grand-daughter was also in  constant attendance.  . The. remains were taken to Keremeos on Monday, by Mr. H. Richter,  and interred in the cemetery there on  Tuesday afternoon, the Rev. J. A.  Cleland, of Penticton, conducting the  funeral services in the Anglican  church-room arid at the grave.  Kcrcmcos-Penticton Mail Stage.  A first-class new auto has been added to W. E.
