    McAdam, Nov. 7 -- One more death has been added to the tragic succession of local visitations previously reported by the passing here, this afternoon, of William Lister of the firm of Lister and Embleton, after an illness of two weeks.   Everything that medical and nursing aid could do had been done in the effort to win the fight against the grim reaper without avail.

    His only son, Ralph, who had been called home from Mount Allison University a day or two ago, was at his bedside as was the wife and mother.   The only other child of their family was a daughter, Muriel, who died here two years ago.

    Mr Lister was born in Harvey in 1863.   He came to this town as a young man and has had a successful business career being known as one of McAdam's prosperous citizens, and his death will be felt as a great loss by all.   He is also survived by one brother, Nicholas D., of Woodstock.   Half-brothers and sisters are Fred T., collector of customs, here; George, of the C.P.R. shops; James and Robert of Harvey; Mrs Spurgeon Ellis, Berlin, N.H.; Miss Mary Lister of Portland, Me.; and Miss Lena, of Harvey.   The late Mr Lister was a Liberal in politics and had his religious affiliations with the United Church.

    He married Barbara Thomas, daughter of Alfred Thomas & Margaret Dundass, 13 Oct 1898 in Harvey. Born 4 Sep 1863 in Thomaston Corner. Died 9 Jun 1942 in St. Stephen. Buried in Rockland Cemetery, McAdam.
