      _______________________

      The grim reaper, death, called rather suddenly from this life's work an old resident of this neighborhood, Menno Musselman, who passed away on Sunday. On Friday he was working in the fields yet, but was forced to quit by severe pains in the hip. He expected an attack of rheumatism, from which he had suffered on former occasions, but the dreaded pneumonia soon developed and carried him off. Deceased was unmarried and stayed with his twin brother Joseph, who will no doubt feel the separation keenly.
      The remains of the late Menno Musselman were interred in the Mennonite Cemetery west of Elmira on Wednesday of last week in presence of a large number of relatives and friends. Rev'ds A. Gingrich and Silas Bauman conducted the services, and six nephews of deceased acted as pall bearers. Deceased leaves one brother, 3 sisters and many relatives.
