Description
Full Text

Mrs. William Hands, Main Street, has been advised by telegram of the death of her only brother, John Russell, in Graveley, Vancouver, B.C.

John Russell was a printer, having learned his trade in the press room of The Independent, joining the staff as a lad of 25. Owing to poor health, he left The Independent and went to Manitoba, staying with relaives on a farm. One year later he was back in the printing business, this time in Carman, Man., going on from there to Winnipeg where he was engaged for several years in newspaper work. His next move to Verwood, Sask., and employment there by the Massey-Harris Company, and then to Graveley, B.C., severed finally his connection with printing and publishing.

The late Mr. Russell was in his 58th year, and leaves one son, Max, with whom he lived, and a daughter, Jean, a nurse in Regina. His wife died in 1926.
