  • Notes 
    • A sad death took place at Baden on Wednesday when Mr. Irwin W. Hunsberger passed away very unexpectedly at the age of 29 years, 6 months and 7 days. Although not feeling well he assisted at threshing at the farm of Mr. Henry Miller and while feeding the threshing machine fell from the platform. The bursting of a blood vessel in his head due to the fall is believed to have caused his death which ensued several hours later. The deceased was the only son of Mr. and Mrs. john Hunsberger and was a highly esteemed young farmer of the neighbourhood. He was married to Mary Roth of New Hamburg, who is left to mourn his untimely death besides one child. Another child died a few months ago. He is also survived by his parents. The funeral will take place from his late home to Hostetler's church and cemetery on Saturday afternoon leaving the house at 1 p.m. The sympathy of the whole community is extended to the family is their sad bereavement.
