By the death of Mr. Daniel McDowall, senior partner of the well-known firm of Messrs. John McDowall and Sons, engineers, Walkinshaw Foundry, Johnstone, that busy Renfrewshire town has lost one of its best known citizens.

The firm of which the deceased was an active partner many years since acquired an excellent reputation, particularly in the colonies, for the character of their woodworking machinery; indeed, in the making of such machinery the McDowall firm took first rank in Scotland.

In addition to giving much attention to the business of his firm, the deceased took an active part in political and other public affairs both in his native town and in the country.

Mr. McDowall was between forty and fifty years of age at his death.
