Florenceville Items
Thursday morning 21 st,
Daniel Dooley, says, on his way to work, he heard groans, and looking over the side of the Florenceville bridge discovered that Mr. John Lovely was lying on the rocks at the foot of the western pier, some 34 feet below. He immediately went down, and found that Mr. Lovely was in a helpless condition, as he was considerably bruised; he went at once to his family and told them about what he saw, and Mr. Lovely's sons, with Mr. J. L. Pitt and John Jamieson and some others had him brought home.
Dr. David Wiley was called in and he at once pronounced it a very bad fracture of the skull, and said it was impossible for him to live.
In about three hours after finding him he was dead. A jury was called by Dr. Hagerman, coroner, and a number of witnesses examined; it then adjourned until next day, when the examination was finished and the following verdict rendered:
We, the jury on the cause of John Lovely's death, after a careful examination of evidence, believe that he came to his death from a wound on the head received in some unknown way.
There are a number of theories afloat as to the cause of death, numbers holding that it would be impossible for him to fall that distance without being broken to pieces. There were no marks on his body, only his face and head showing any marks.
He was one of the old residents of this place, and Postmaster for a number of years. The evidence before the coroner's jury shows that he was drinking some that evening, and had visited Daniel Dooley's house. Dooley says he came over the bridge with Mr. Lovely at about 11 o'clock.
He was buried on Saturday at 2 p. m., Rev. Mr. Hoyt, of Andover, was officiating clergyman. The funeral was attended by a very large concourse of people. Mr. Lovely was a quiet unassuming man, and very much respected by all who knew him, and his sad death has thrown a gloom over both East and West Florenceville.

Joseph B. Wright
While helping to load a car with logs near Newburg Junction, last Tuesday afternoon, Mr. Wright received severe, and what subsequently proved to be fatal injuries. He, with another man, were on the partly loaded car when the stakes broke, and part of the logs rolled to the ground. The other man saved himself by jumping, but
Mr. Wright was brought to the ground with the logs, several of which rolled on his legs. He was liberated as soon as possible by those present, place in a car, brought to Woodstock, and carried to his home.

Drs. Connell and Colter were at once called in, and found both legs badly broken below the knee, and in one a bad flesh wound. All possible aid was rendered, and after several hours of severe, but patient suffering, he seemed to rest more comfortably. His injuries, however, proved to be too severe for his constitution, and on Saturday morning he passed quietly, peacefully away.

Mr. Wright moved here from Studholm, Kings County, about 30 years ago, and except one year at Lakeville, has resided in this vicinity. He was converted under the ministry of Rev. John Prince, and joined the Methodist Church some thirty-two years ago, and has ever since proved himself a worthy and useful member of that body. His path in christian life grew brighter as he advanced in years, and his last testimony was probably the brightest he ever made. He has lost three children, and leaves a wife and seven children__three sons and four daughters__to mourn the loss of an affectionate husband and kind parent. He will be missed by his brothers in the church as one of sterling christian character, and by all who knew him as an obliging friend.

Heir to a Half a Million
Alexander Mitchell, of Aberdeen, Carleton Co., N. B. is a firm believer in the saying that it is better to be born lucky than rich. Sixteen years ago he emigrated to this province and since then has led the life of honest toil that falls to the lot of most emigrants, who take more interest in the buckwheat crop than the winter port. Before he came here, however, he had often heard around the old fireside in the Isle of Jersey, where he was born, tales of the fabulous wealth of an uncle in the Island of Ceylon. Time wore away until a year or more ago, when a letter reached him from the wife of this uncle advising him of his uncle's death and wanting him to go to Ceylon to look after the estate.
The long journey for his wife and the little ones and the comfortable little home he had reared for himself made him hesitate, and he heard nothing more until some ten or twelve days ago, when he was startled with an advertisement in a newspaper announcing the death of his aunt and calling on this Alexander Mitchell to whom, by the will of the uncle, all the property reverted on the death of his wife.
Mr. Mitchell has taken steps to prosecute his claims and prove his title to an estate, compared with which his little New Brunswick home will be small indeed. The estate is valued at half a million dollars.-

The Lumber Industry
F. E. Sayre & Company's mill at Hartland was closed on account of a breakdown on Friday, but started up again on Monday. Lath sawing for the winter season will be completed probably by the last of next week, after which the mill will undergo a thorough overhauling for the summer's cut. It is expected the sawing of long lumber will begin on April 20th, almost a month earlier than it did last year. The winter has been favorable to lumbering on the Becaguimac as it has been everywhere else, and the Sayre concern has cut about 5,000,000 feet, of spruce chiefly, which will keep the millmen busy until the pond freezes next fall. The men are hardly through with the work in the woods yet, but a few days will see the end of operations. The entire output of the winter's operation of the lath machine is being held for better prices. However shipping will begin about April 1st, when the 3,000,000 will be shipped to the American market. Last summer's cut is still in the yard, but was sold long ago to American parties. The shipment of this is now begun.
The Peel Lumber Company's mill at Stickney is in daily operation and gives employment to a large number of men. All kinds of lumber is being cut and shipped to the American markets.
J. K. Flemming's mill at Hartland is running full blast, and both hard and soft woods are being cut. Most of the hard wood is sold to the C. P. R. and sent to Montreal, where it enters into the construction of freight cars.
