BREMNER, Major W. F. D. - The community was shocked to learn on Tuesday of the death of Major W. F. D. Bremner who passed away early that morning at the P. M. Hospital at Windsor. Major Bremner was taken suddenly ill on Thursday and was removed to the P. M. Hospital where he underwent surgical treatment. But slight hope was given for his recovery and on Monday afternoon it could be seen that his condition was gradually growing worse, death following on Tuesday morning. Deceased was born at Halifax seventy-six years ago and was a son of the late Colonel J. J. and Mrs. Bremner. He was educated in the public schools in that city and in Dalhousie University, coming to Castle Frederick at Falmouth, formerly owned by the late Judge DeBarres and which property has been in the family for several generations.

Deceased was a director of the Falmouth Fruit Co., and President of the N. S. Poultrymen's Association. He had for many years taken special interest in the raising of poultry, and few exhibitions at Halifax and elsewhere in this section of the Province that did not record a large number of prize winners in his name. Mrs. Bremner, who predeceased her husband two years was Miss Maria Bacon of Windsor. There survive one son, William Frederick DesBarres, at home, and one daughter Josephine, wife of R. B. O'Brien, Toronto, who was informed of her father's illness and who arrived here on Sunday night.

Indeed it was a sad home coming for father and son and the sympathy of a large number of friends goes out to them, as well as other relatives in their time of deep sorrow.

Deceased was active in numerous organizations and especially will her loss be felt by the Ladies' Aid of Trinity Church, The I.O.D.E. and The P.M. Hospital Auxiliary.
