      EARLY CALL TO YOUNG MAN
      MANY FRIENDS HEAR WITH REGRET OF THE PASSING AWAY

      The people of Elmira on Saturday morning received with a shock the news that Alfred Battenberg had passed away. Although he had not felt well for a couple of weeks, he had only been in bed for a few days. He started with pneumonia, complications set in, the heart was affected and the end came quickly.

      The deceased was the son of Rev. H. and Mrs. Battenberg of Clifford who are left to mourn his early departure. Four sisters and four brothers also survive namely, Ruth, Esther, Hildegard and Gertrude, all at home. Oscar of London, England, Walter of Milwaukee, Herbert of Chicago, Arthur of Brussells. His aged grandparents Mr. and Mrs. C. Ziegler with whom he had his home, also outlive him with other relatives.

      The deceased was employed with the Elmira Plumbing and Tinsmithing Company where he earned a good opinion by his employers as a willing and efficient workman. He was a member of St. Paul's Church, its Young People's Society and its Sunday School Teaching staff and everywhere he showed his faithfulness and willingness to work. Alfred carried a cheery smile and a friendly word wherever he went and was a most welcome guest at all social gatherings of his friends. His family and circle of young friends will sorely miss him but may console themselves with the thought that the Lord has granted him his reward early and taken him to the realms of eternal bliss. His earthly remains were laid in their last resting place on Tuesday afternoon. After a short service at the home, the funeral cortege proceeded to St. Paul's church where his Pastor, Rev. A. Gallmeier, in the English language, and Rev. F. Malinsky, in the German tongue spoke words of comfort and hope to the bereaved friends. Interment followed in the Elmira Union Cemetery.

      The pallbearers were, Messrs. Victor Muth, Milton Steinke, Edward Klinck, Oscar Bleck, Harry Weichel and A. Borchardt.
