      _______________________

      WEBER - A sad and fatal accident occurred on the 9th of January, resulting in the death of our dear brother, Isaac Weber, of Berlin, Ontario. On the above date, about noon, he started for his home a short distance south-east of Berlin, in company with Bro. Samuel Cressman, and when near the intersection of King and Cedar Strs, the king-bolt of his vehicle dropped out, throwing both men violently to the frozen ground, stunning them. The latter soon recovered, but Bro. Weber was carried to a house near by, he however recovered so far that he could be taken home. Medical aid had been promptly summoned, and his injuries were not considered fatal, but on Sunday following he was taken with an epileptic stroke, rendering him speechless, and from that time he began to sink until Tuesday the 12th when he passed away. He leaves a sorrowing companion, three adopted children (one married), an aged mother, one brother and one sister, besides many near and dear friends who deeply mourn their loss. Bro. Weber was a consistent member of the Mennonite church since his youth, and one of the pioneer Sunday school workers in our church. He always took a lively interest in everything pertaining to the prosperity of the Master's cause. His remains were conveyed to their last earthly resting place at C. Eby's M.H., on the 14th. Funeral services by David Hostetler, of Ohio, in German, and by David Garber, of Ohio, in English, to a house filled to its utmost capacity with sympathizing hearers. Text Isa. 3: 10, 11. Bro. Weber had reached the age of 56 years and 8 months. J.Z.K.
