    Many At Funeral of Charles Robison

    Prominent Resident of Harvey Station Buried Yesterday Following Church Service.

    Harvey Station, Aug 10 -- Impressive tribute to the memory of Charles Robison, one of Harvey's best known and popular farmers was paid by relatives and a wide circle of friends at the funeral held this afternoon at the village church of which he was a life long member.   Rev. Ross C. Robbins, pastor, officiated at the services, assisted by Rev. J. Hugh MacLean, Saint John and Rev. A. MacKay, Norton, NB, former pastors.    ...............


    Mr Robison's memory is honored among us because of the family name he bore, one of the oldest names in Harvey's history.   But the presence of so many to do him final tribute speaks eloquently of the honor and respect toward the man himself.   We join in expressing the comfort of our fellowship to the family now bereaved. .......................
