      _________________

      BOWMAN.-Dec. 27, 1902, near Winterbourne, Waterloo Co., Ont., after an illness of a few weeks, of dropsy and heart failure, Samuel S. Bowman. He leaves a loving wife, two sons and two daughters to mourn their loss, but which in the true sense, is his eternal gain. He left a bright evidence of a strong assurance to meet his Savior in peace. Services at the house were conducted by Elder Menno Bowman, of the New Mennonite church, and at Snyder's M.H. by Pre. Springer, of the U.B. church; text, Job 7: 16; and Pre. E.S. Hallman; text, Rev. 14: 13.
