      JOSEPH GOOD HURST was born in the Township of Woolwich December 2nd, 1859. He received his education in the public schools of this township, also attending the Berlin High School (now the Berlin Collegiate Institute), the Toronto Normal School and the Bloomington University, Ill., taking the non-resident course. He taught school for about ten years, when he retired from the profession to follow the occupation of farming, and now resides on a farm bordering on the village of Conestogo. Mr. Hurst is a past President of the Waterloo County Teachers' Association and is also an ex-president of the North Waterloo Farmers' Institute. He was a Justice of the Peace until the recent revision, when he secured the appointment of commissioner for taking affidavits.
