    • YOUNG LIFE PAID AS WAR SACRIFICE
      DEATH OF HERBERT ALLGEIER OCCURS AS RESULT OF WAR EXPERIENCES

      Another sacrifice to the great war was consummated in death last Monday of Mr. Herbert Allgeier, son of Reeve Michael Allgeier, who passed away in Byron Sanitarium after a prolonged period of ill health resulting from his experiences overseas, when he was gassed by the enemy in the battles on the French front in 1918.

      The late Mr. Allgeier was twenty-seven years and six months old. He was born in Peel township on the old homestead on the eighth of Peel, and came to Elmira with his parents sixteen years ago. He lived in Elmira continuously until he went overseas in July 1918, returning in April 1919.

      The funeral is being held to-day to the Evangelical Church, and thence to the Elmira Cemetery. In the absence of Rev Mr. Bean through illness, Rev. Mr. Jewitt is taking charge of the services.

      Besides his parents, the late Mr. Allgeier is survived by two brothers, Alvin and Clayton in town, and by two sisters Mrs. Ernie Wales of Brampton, and Mrs. Fred Ziegler of Dana, Sask., for all of whom much sympathy to expressed through the community in this the hour of their bereavement.
