EWING– May 16, suddenly, at 5, Railway-terrace, Newbury, Miss Mary Ewing, formerly British School Mistress

The death was announced yesterday of Miss Ewing, of Railway-terrace. In the morning her attendant entered her room as usual, and thinking Miss Ewing was asleep did not disturb her. On returning afterwards she found that Miss Ewing was dead, having evidently passed away in her sleep.

The attendance of Dr. Douglas. her medical attendant, was obtained, and she having been an invalid for sometime, he was able to give a certificate of death which precluded the necessity of an Inquest. Miss Ewing was for 36 years Mistress of the Girls' British School, and was held in high regard as an efficient painstaking teacher holding office when the requirements of the Educational Code were less exacting than at present. She was thorough in her teaching of the elementary branches of education. and especially in regard to plain sewing. She will be remembered with gratitude and respect by many who are now women of middle age.

She bad been a member of the Baptist Church nearly fifty years, and was one or the oldest tenants of the row of houses which was built by the Great Western Company on the railway being first brought to the town.
