      Weber. - On the 30th of November, in Waterloo county, Ontario, of Consumption, BENJAMIN M. WEBER, aged 57 years, 9 months and 2 days. He was buried on the 2nd of December at Eby's Meeting-house. Funeral addresses were delivered by Joseph Hegy and David Sherk from Rev. 14: 12, 13. He bore his affliction with Christian fortitude, and had a great desire to depart and be with Christ. During his sickness he frequently asked God's blessing upon his family, and with tears exhorted them to hold out faithful to the end. He leaves a widow and seven children to mourn their loss, but not as those having no hope. Good-by, children and wife, I must part with you for my home is in heaven and I have no rest here below. F. H. M.
