One of Woodstock and Carleton County best known citizens died here last Thursday morning following a heart attack. He was 67 years old.

Although nearly blind for the past few years he was quite remarkable and was able to find his way about the streets and through the plumping station every inch of which he knew by heart. A mechanical genius, perhaps he will be best remembered by a generation of Carleton County young people for his "Island Park Railway". No exhibition would have been complete without several rides on this ingenious masterpiece which Mr. Wort had constructed in his spare moments. The equipment included several minature locomotives, passenger coaches, stations, tracks, round house and storage rooms. Two of his locomotives he sold in India and he at once set to work building another which he finished in a short time.

The funeral was held from his late home Upper Main Street on Saturday afternoon at 2 o'clock. Rev.F.A. Anderson conducted the service assisted by Adj. Harris of the Salvation Army. The choir of the Reformed Baptist Church sang " Abide With Me", "Beautiful Isle of Somewhere", and "Lead Kindly Light". The pallbearers were: R.F. Payson, Willard Hayden,George True, Frank Colwell, Frank Hillman, and Jack Millbury. Interment took place in the Methodist Cemetary. The floral tributes were many and beautiful.
