      John B. Histand

      Shortly after returning home from Zion Evangelical church, about nine o'clock on Sunday evening, Mr. John B. Histand, a respected resident of this town, passed away, while seated on a chair. Death was due to heart failure and was shockingly sudden, as the deceased was apparently in the best of health during the day. The late Mr. Histand was in his 72nd year and has lived in Berlin for many years, residing on Spetz street. He is survived by his wife and son and daughter, John, who left for Star City, Saskatchewan, a few days ago and Mrs. John F. Mastern, of New Dundee. The funeral took place on Wednesday afternoon, at 2 o'clock, to the Zion Evangelical Church, for service and from thence to the East End cemetery, for interment.
