  • Notes 
    • The funeral of the late Jonathan Cressman, who died at Trout Brook, N. Y., was to have taken place from his father's residence on Sunday afternoon at two o'clock, but owing to the train being blocked by the snow storm on Friday his father, Mr. Menno Cressman, did not arrive at Paris station until half past three on Sunday morning and had to hire a livery to drive to Wilmot, so that the funeral did not take place until Monday morning at Geiger's churchyard near Wilmot Centre. We sympathize with the relations of the young man who has been taken off in his prime far away from home and friends.
