  • Notes 
    • Doering's Corners - Mrs. Peter Berg was called to Walkerton last week by the death of her sister, Mrs. Fred Lippert who passed away on Wednesday last, the funeral occurring on Friday. Deceased and her husband were well known here, both been raised in this township, and the sympathy of the public goes out to the latter.
