    • SAD ACCIDENT

      On Good Friday, the 31st of March, several of the sons of Bro. Henry Baer near Manheim, Waterloo Co., Ontario, were engaged in boiling maple sap in the woods, the rest of the family having gone to meeting. While the oldest of them went home for a short time on some business, his brother Noah, about eight and a half years old, accidently fell into the pan of boiling sap, and was scalded so badly that he died at about 10 o'clock the same evening. Buried at Latschar's cemetery on Monday April 3d, where a large number of people were assembled to sympathize with the sorrowing family in their sad bereavement. Bro. Menno Cressman spoke in German from Matt. 22: 12 and Bro. N. Stauffer in English from Mark 10: 14, 15, 17.
