      _______________________


      On the 18th of June, in Woolwich township, Waterloo Co., Ont., MICHAEL BRUBACHER, aged 27 years, 9 months and 18 days. He struck his foot against a splinter, which penetrated the flesh between the large and second toes. He drew out the splinter and the wound healed. In ten days however he felt pains in his back and other parts of the body. He went to see a physician to whom the case seemed singular and he called other physicians, and the foot was opened and another piece of splinter was found and taken out. But the pains continued to increase, his mouth and all the limbs of the body became stiff and death put an end to his suffering. He leaves his mourning friends the comfort that their loss is his eternal gain. He leaves a widow and one child. He was a member of the Mennonite church. He was buried on the 20th at Conestoga where Lewis Koch and A. B. Martin preached funeral discourses, to a large concourse of people.
