MAYOR BEAUVAIS DEAD

First Citizen of Caughnawaga Was in 65th Year

Louis K. Beauvais, mayor of Caughnawaga, die yesterday afternoon after a lingering illness. He was in his 65th year.

The distinction of being the first citizen of the village of Caughnawaga was less to Mr. Beauvais than his knowledge of the craft of the woods and his learning concerning the ways of fish. He was known to sportsmen all over America who look to the wilds of Quebec for their diversion during the summer.

Most of his life Mr. Beauvais spent as manager of fish and game clubs. For fourteen years he was at the St. Maurice Club, on Lake Wayagamack, and at different times he was also connected with the Windmill Point Club, the Isleway Club and the Rockledge Club, all on Ile Perrot.

Mr. Beauvais was born in Caughnawaga and all his family were rear
ed and still live there. He is survived by his widow, formerly Miss Mary Maloney; four sons, Fred K. Beauvais, Arthur Beauvais, L.E. Beauvais and Charles Beauvais, and two daughters, Ethel Beauvais and Mrs. Michael Stacey.
