Our community, North Kingston, has sustained another loss in the sudden death of Zenas Saunders, son of Edmund Saunders, of this place, which occurred on July 27, 1910, at the residence of W. W. Neily, North Kingston. The deceased was twenty-four years of age. He has been suffering from heart trouble for the last few months and has been unable to do very much work. He was a member of the Kingston Baptist Church and Sunday School where, when able to attend, he was an active worker. He has been Secretary and Treasurer of the Sunday School for the last few years. He leaves a widow, daughter of W. W. Neily, and one little daughter, father, mother, five brothers and four sisters, besides a large circle of friends to mourn their loss. The four older brothers, Stephen, of Nicholsville, Wilfred, of Harmony, Harry, of Weston, and William, of North Kingston, were pall bearers at the funeral.
Beautiful floral tributes were placed on his casket by loving friends. The funeral services were held at Mr. Neilys residence and were largely attended. They were, in the absence of Mr. Saunders pastor Rev. C. R. Freeman, conducted by Rev. H. B. Smith, of Melvern, who spoke appropriate words from "There shall be no night there." The remains were interred in the North Kingston Cemetery. May the God who was with our brother in life and death watch over the widow in her sad bereavement.
North Kingston, Aug. 2, 1910.

A Family Reunion.
The family of the late William Margeson, together with the families of the late Benjamin Margeson and Capt. John Woodworth, had a reunion at Black Rock on Tuesday last, and spent a pleasant day reviewing the scenes of their childhood. Their parents moved to the United States about forty-five years ago, when their children were small and the home coming was unusually interesting. Some of the houses where they formerly had lived were gone and only the cellars remained to tell the tale.
Dinner was partaken of on the grounds of the old home of their grandfather, the late Mr. John Margeson. After a visit to the light house, a walk on the beach, and recalling old reminiscences, the parties drove to their several homes.
The party consisted of Mr. Noble B., Margeson, of Harborville; Mr. and Mrs. Otis A. Margeson, of Berwick; Mr. George L. Margeson and wife, of Mattapan, Mass., ; Mrs. Edwin Pierce, and two daughters, of Grafton; Mr. Lemuel Woodworth and son, of California; Mrs. Bert Margeson, of Harborville; Mr. Willie McLeod, of Bridgetown; and Miss Edna Hay, of Murchyville. Four of the daughters of Mr. James Hird, of Grafton; Misses Lizzie, Agnes, Mary and Cassie were also of the party.
