Beamsville - In his 85th year, Almer Crouse, one of the last surviving pioneers on the corporation, died at his home on William Street on Thursday morning. His widow, two sons, Edward of Niagara Falls, N.Y., and Harry, of St. Catharines, and Mrs. D Mavor of Beamsville are left to mourn his demise. Deceased was a reat (?) poultry fancier from his earliest days and while he did not go in for extensive breeding he was the first person in the district who gave an impetus to the keeping of pure bred stock. Nearly half a century ago he brought to Beamsville settins of pure bred brown Leghorns and through all the years that followed he was an ardent admirer of the breed. He was a faithful and energetic superintendent of the poultry association for over 14 years and exhibitors will miss his presence in the show room at the annual local affair. In the minute books of the village he was one of the first workmen to receive remuneration for doing repairs after the incorporation of the village in 1879. His genial, kindly disposition will not be forgotten by those who were associated with him in his various activities.

The funeral was held Saturday afternoon to Mount Osborne Cemetery.
