      CRESSMAN.-On the 25th of April, 1898, near Strasburg, Waterloo Co., Ont., of inflammation of the kidneys, from which she suffered but a few days, Sister Mary, beloved wife of Bro. Josiah Cressman, and youngest daughter of Samuel and Lydia Brubacher, aged 29 years, 10 months and 10 days. Buried in the Strasburg cemetery on the 28th. Our sister had been indelicate health for some years, but her sudden demise was a shock to all, for she was well known and highly esteemed as a faithful, consistent Christian. Her surviving husband, to whom she had been married but a few short years, has the sympathy of the whole community in his sore affliction. She also leaves her mother, three brothers and three sisters, and many other relatives and friends to mourn her early death. God comfort them in their sore affliction. Funeral services at the house by Jacob Gingrich, and at the Weber meetinghouse by E. S. Hallman in English from Isa. 35:10, and by Noah Stauffer in German from Phil. 1:21. The new meeting house was filled to overflowing.
      Not dead, but sleeping,
      Then cease your weeping,
      Dear Mary's with the blest;
      She went before us
      To join the chorus
      Of those in endless rest.
