      _________________________

      Mr. John Frederick Augustus Sykes Fayette, a well educated mulatto, built a schoolhouse on his own account in rear of where the Royal Exchange hotel now stands, in 1840. He called it the "Wellington Institute," and opened it in December, charging the usual rates, but being poorly patronized he ran into debt and left a year or two afterwards quite suddenly, greatly to the chagrin of his creditors. His was the first school in Berlin in which any attempt had been made to teach grammar and also the first in which the pupils saw a geographical map. Jacob Y. Shantz, then 18 years of age, and the late Israel D. Bowman, a lad of 11, attended this school. 2a

      ISRAEL D. BAUMANN


      Israel D. Baumann died quite suddenly early Friday morning. He was afflicted with a heart ailment and since the sudden death of his brother William and of his cousin Daniel had been somewhat concerned with his health. However, he was still in the position to fulfill the duties of his office and was seen every day on the street. On Thursday evening, he had been at the Post Office, spoke with some friends in front of it for a while about various things, listened for a while to the musical band playing at the market building, went home around 10pm and apparently went to bed still in good health. At l am he awakened his wife and complained of cold feet. While she attempted to warm his feet with a warm brick, he died.

      The deceased was born in 1830 two miles north of the city of Waterloo on a farm. His parents were Henry B. Baumann & Judith, nee Baumann. He was employed for some years in his father's shop, managed it for a few years with his brother-in-law, Heins, and also managed the Telegraph Office as well. In 1858 he was reeve of the village of Berlin, in 1861 he became the clerk of Berlin and in the same year also, clerk of the County of Waterloo, and in 1880, County Treasurer. In addition he was the Poorhouse Inspector & Director of the Mercantile Fire Insurance Co. of Waterloo. He remained in these offices until his death, to the satisfaction of all. He was precise and reliable in all that he did, and he was regarded as an authority in municipal matters. He is survived, in addition to his widow, by 2 sons and a daughter. His burial took place on Sunday afternoon, with a large number of people in attendance.5a
