      Death of Mr. John Ernst

      Mr. John Ernst passed away very suddenly at his home here on Friday evening last following an attack of the heart, at the age of 67 years, 8 months and 16 days. He was a son of the late John and Sophia Ernst and was born at Petersburg, coming to New Hamburg in 1872 when his father took over the Imperial Hotel. The deceased later conducted the Queen's Hotel for his mother, after the death of his father, and was widely known by the travelling public. He was of an accommodating and friendly disposition and was esteemed by a large circle of friends. The deceased was a member of the local lodge of the I.O.O.F. and a faithful member of the Lutheran Church. He was unmarried, but leaves seven sisters and one brother to mourn his death. They are Mrs. I. Betzner, Mrs. Alex Fraser and Mrs. Rebelski, of New Hamburg, Mrs. Ammon Merner, Waterloo, Misses Wilhelmine and Marion Ernst, Mrs. Allie Urquhart and Mr. William Ernst, of Toronto. The funeral was held on Tuesday afternoon and was largely attended. Rev. A. Rolf, pastor of St. Peter's Lutheran Church, conducted the service and internment was made in Riverside Cemetery.
