      Last Friday the remains of the late Rachel Eby, nee Shantz, were interred in the Mennonite graveyard; the attendance was large. Deceased and her husband had lived for some years with their son Absolom in the village. She suffered much from rheumatism but bore all sufferings and trials patiently till released by death. Rev. Gingrich preached the funeral sermon and spoke words of consolation to the bereaved family.
