      Friends in Elmira were grieved to hear on Friday last of the death at St. Thomas, Ont., of Solomon H. Eby, well-known musician and brother-in-law of the late Dr. A. S. Vogt of Toronto and of other members of the Vogt family in Elmira. The late Mr. Eby, who was a former well-known citizen of Elmira, passed away at Victoria Hospital, London, after some four weeks' illness.

      Mr. Vogt was born in Kitchener 77 years ago and after residing in Elmira, Boston and Montreal moved to St. Thomas nearly half a century ago and where he had since resided.

      He was a member of the Knights of Pythias, the Independent Order of Foresters and a prominent worker in First United Church in St. Thomas. His wife, formerly Laura Vogt of Elmira, one daughter, Mrs. C. H. Byrnes, 55 St. Anne's Place, St. Thomas, a son, Oscar Eby, 28 Scott street, St. Thomas, one sister, Miss Maggie Eby, Grand Rapids, and two brothers, Menno .Eby of Southampton and Ed-ward Eby of Detroit, survive. Mrs. Eby's sister, Mrs. George Ruppel of Elmira, passed away only a few weeks ago.
