Death of A. J. Cummings
Below is the obituary notice of Archibald J. Cummings, formerly a resident of Mulhall. Many of our readers will remember Mr. Cummings as one of the pioneers, having removed to Salmon Arm, British Columbia, several years ago:

Archibald J. Cummings, one of Salmon Arm's pioneer settlers, passed away on May 17, 1901, at the age of 52. He was long a sufferer from Bright's disease, the end being hastened by pneumonia. He was a man of genial and kindly disposition, and is deeply lamented in the neighborhood, where he was held in very high esteem. He took an active interest in the furtherance of all matters pertaining to the public weal. His influence will be missed and his place hard to fill. He leaves a wife, daughter and four sons to mourn his loss.
He was born in County Stormont, Ontario, in 1849, and was the son of John Cummings, his mother being Margaret McDiarmid of Glengary. He leaves five sisters and seven brothers.
The funeral, which was very largely attended, was conducted under the auspices of the local Orange Lodge No. 1642, of which he was deputy master. In politics he was a staunch Conservative. The settlers of the surrounding district have under consideration the erection of a suitable monument in recognition of the many lasting services he has rendered the settlers of the North Yale district of British Columbia. His family has the sympathy of all in the loss of a kind husband and loving father.-Kamloops, British Columbia, Standard.
