    Harvey Station, Feb 1 -- The death occurred at his home here on Friday morning of Thomas Wilson, one of Harvey's most respected residents, at the age of 73 years.   Mr Wilson had been a lifelong resident of this locality, having been engaged in farming for many years.   Although in failing health for several years he remained active and interested in the life of the community until death came suddenly at the last.

Wood of Tweedside, Mrs Amos Moffitt of McAdam, Mrs Gordon Dykeman of Hoquiam, Wash., the Misses Mabel and Helen, of Portland, Me., and the Misses Zella and Dora, at home.
