      _______________________________

      HEISTAND.-On the 17th of December, 1890, in Waterloo township, Waterloo Co., Ont., of paralysis, Sister Elizabeth Heistand, wife of Bro., George Heistand, aged 74 years, 7 months and 17 days. The dear Sister had been poorly for a number of years. About five weeks ago she had a slight attack of paralysis which made her helpless and on the evening of the 16 th she took her supper as usual and slept till 1 o'clock, when Brother Heistand spoke to her, but received no answer and at 3 o'clock her spirit took its flight. She was buried on the 19 th at the Eby church, Berlin, where a large assembly of relatives and friends met to sympathize with the dear Brother and family in their bereavement. The church militant has lost a consistent member, but we believe she has now joined the church Triumphant. The services were conducted by Moses Erb and the house and Samuel Bowman and Noah Stauffer at the church. From Eccl. 4:14 and 2 Cor. 5:1.1a
