      HORST. - On the 15th of May at his residence in Waterloo Co., Ont., of old age, Bro. David Horst, aged 80 years, 3 months and 17 days. He was a member of the Mennonite Church. A wife, children and 32 grandchildren mourn their loss, which we hope to be his eternal gain. He was buried at Martin's Meeting-house. Services were held by Elias Snyder and Abraham Martin, from Rev. 3 : 19. May the Lord comfort the sorrowing friends.
