PETROLIA 5 July: While playing with a number of other children at her home on Centre Street, last evening, Frances Dorothy Brydges, 14 year old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Brydges, was electrocuted.

It was then that she touched the live high tension lines. The other children noticed the accident immediately and summoned the girl's father who removed her from the tree. The family had moved to Petrolia early in June, coming from the Enniskillen-Plympton townline. Frances was a fourth book student at S.S. No.23 Enniskillen township before coming to Petrolia and making an excellent showing in her work. The parents, two sisters and seven brothers survive, as well as Mrs. E.

GEORGE SHIRLEY, ESQUIRE
The funeral of the late George Shirley, Esq., who died on Wednesday 25th October in his 76th year, took place on Friday afternoon from the family residence, St. Clair St., to St. James Cemetery, Brooke. Notwithstanding the inclement weather a large number turned out to pay the last tribute of respect to an old and honored citizen. The funeral service was conducted by the Rev. J. Downie, B.D., assisted by the Rev. W.G.H. McAlister, M.A., and Rev. R. Haddow, B.D. The pallbearers were George R. Shirley, John Shirley, R. Alexander, J.R. Logan, Paul Kingston and Wm. Kelly. The deceased was twice married and leaves a family of 2 sons, George R., of Brooke; and E.J., of Watford; and 4 daughters, Miss Sarah; Mrs. Paul Kingston of Brooke; Mrs. Robert Alexander of Warwick; and Mrs. John R. Logan of Sarnia, by his 1st wife, who was Miss Margaret King. In October 1891, he was married to Mrs. McCaw of Brockville, who survives him. Mrs. Willoughby of Watford and Mrs. Duncan of Lanark are the only surviving sisters. The late Mr. Shirley was born in the Township of Drummond, Lanark County, in 1823, and was a son of William Shirley, of that place. He came west about 1846, settling in the Township of Brooke, where he continued to reside until 10 years ago when he removed to Watford. Being a man of superior ability and thorough knowledge of municipal and political affairs he speedily came into prominence and filled many positions of trust and responsibility, among others, Clerk and Reeve of Brooke, for a number of years, Warden of Lambton, County Auditor, Reeve of Watford for 2 terms, Justice of the Peace, President and Treasurer of the East Lambton Liberal Conservative Association, Returning Officer, and at the time of his death was a member of the Watford Council. He took an active and leading part in politics and in 1879 was the Conservative candidate in East Lambton against Peter Graham, the latter winning by a narrow majority. Few men were better informed on the issues of the day, or had the faculty of presenting their views more clearly or forcibly. In his death, Lambton loses one of its most prominent and ablest citizens, whose work has left its impress on the history of the county. (Private services were held in the house previous to interment, as some of the relatives feared to face the heavy downpour of rain. His sister, Mrs. Duncan, resides in the County of Leeds instead of Lanark, and his nephew, W.G. Willoughby, was one of the pallbearers, the name of Mr. Kelly being mentioned mistakenly.)
