      "Shantz.-Death came as a welcome relief to Bro. Jonathan. Shantz of Carstairs, Alta., who passed away Dec. 14, 1914; aged 65 y. 8 m. 28 d. The deceased was born March 16, 1849, in Waterloo Co. Ont., where he grew to manhood and on Oct. 27, 1876, was married to Caroline Bingeman. To this union were born 9 children, 2 of them having died while quite young. The remaining ones are in the immediate vicinity and at home. In 1901 he moved with his family to a farm near Carstairs, Alberta, where he has since resided to the time of his death. He has been a member of the Mennonite Church for quite a number of years, and when health permitted was seldom missing at the regular services.
      Funeral services conducted by N. R. Weber, J. K. Lehman, and N. B. Stauffer, on Dec. 16 at the West Zion Church, near Carstairs, Alta."
