      __________________________

      Ernst.--Daniel B. Ernst, son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Ernst of Heidelberg, Ont., was born Feb. 3, 1865; died Jan. 2, 1927; aged 61 y. 10 m. 30 d. His first wife, Fanny Rudy, died about 10 years ago. Later he married Barbara Sauder, widow of Moses Sauder of New Holland, Pa. Besides the widow he leaves the 5 sons, 2 daughters, 1 sister, and 3 brothers. The oldest son, Josiah, died 1917. Bro. Ernst united with the Mennonite Church in his youth, and remained a faithful member to the end. Nearly two years ago he began to be troubled with a sore toe, which later was found to be cancer. After months of intense suffering it was decided to amputate his leg below the knee. This was done last summer and at first it seemed as if he would get well, but later he again began to fail and soon there were signs of internal cancers, which were the cause of his death. He possessed a wonderful constitution, great physical strength, and an unusually sweet and cheerful disposition. He was ready and anxious to leave this world and be with his Savior. Funeral services Jan. 5, by Jesse B. Martin at the home, and Oliver Snider and Moses M. Brubaker at St. Jacobs Church. Texts, Isa. 33: 17; Job 14: 14.
