    Harvey Station, April 17 -- Christopher Johnston, one of the oldest residents of this parish, died at his home at Coburn on Saturday morning.   He was in the eightieth year of his age and enjoyed remarkably good health up to a few months ago.   For the last twenty-three days of his life he was unable to take any nourishment of any kind except small quantities of water, but retained strength in a remarkable manner.   He was a native of Dumfriesshire, Scotland, and came to Harvey early in life.   For upwards of sixty years he has carried on farming at Coburn, and was one of the leading farmers in that prosperous section of the parish.   His sons are Luke Johnston, residing here; Thos Johnston, of McAdam; and Albert, at home.   His daughters are Mrs Robert Embleton, residing here and Mrs James McCann of McAdam.   He was a man of genial disposition and had many friends here and elsewhere who will regret to learn of his death.
