      Death of Mrs. Springer

      The many friends of Moses Springer, Esq., Sheriff of the county of Waterloo, will regret to learn of the bereavement he has suffered in the death of his wife, which took place at the family residence, Waterloo, on Monday last. In alluding to the sad event, the Berlin News says: - "Another of our old and highly respected citizens, Mrs. Sheriff Springer, died suddenly this morning. Mrs. Springer has been for several years an invalid, sometimes apparently near death's door but again and again rallied and got better. She had been considerably better than usual for some time past and very few had any idea that the end was near, though the nature of her disease - the dropsy - was such that it was felt that she might die any time. Deceased, who was a daughter of the late Joseph Shantz, was well known to the people of this county and highly esteemed by all who had the pleasure of her acquaintance. She was a devoted Christian, experiencing during all her sickness the fullest confidence of faith in her Saviour. She leaves a sorrowing husband and ten children, nearly all of whom are grownup and occupying good positions, two others having died when children."
