The particulars at this writing a meagre, just the mere announcement the passing away of the little one. Joh Donald MacQuiston was born at the home of his grandparents, in this bor- ough, on Dec. 31, 1906, and wan consej quontly nearly four years of age at the time of his death. After the deatl. of mother he was taken to the South- west by his father, and placed in the careof Mr. MacQuiston's peoule. Little John Donald MacQuiston is well remem- bered in Smethport as a sweet, loveable child, and the family will have the sin ceresy mpathy of a wide circle of friends in the affliction that has come upon them.
