Invitations will be forwarded to every living scholar and teacher, and it is expected that fully 1,000 will attend. Relatives of the scholars will be invited to participate in the celebration.

The exact date of the celebration has not been made known, but the committee in charge expect that reunion will be held the latter part of July or the first week of August.

Aged Grain Merchant Passed Away At Home at Highland Park
Notice of the death of Alexander McDougall, which occurred Tuesday at his late home on the Green Bay road Highland Park, was posted on the Board of Trade Wednesday.
Mr. McDougall was in his seventy-eighth year and was still a fine specimen of the "sturdy Scot" when the recent hot spell bore down upon him. His friends were legion and little knots of men were to be seen discussing the passing of the grand old man. He was an old timer in the Chicago grain market, having become a member before many of the younger men of the trade were born.
He came to Little Fort in 1852, landing at the old Dickenson pier at the foot of Water street. The McDougall family settled on a farm at Lake Villa in 1882. Mr. McDougall went into business under the firm name of McDougall & Co. The same firm exists today and is one of the best known among the grain dealers of the middle west.
The deceased is a brother of the late Robert McDougall, and of J. J. McDougall of Longmont, Colo. Five sisters, Misses Emma, Nellie and Marion McDougall and Mrs. Eugene Clark of Millburn and Mrs. Lewis of Waukegan also survive him. He also has a number of other relatives in this vicinity.
