      After a lengthy illness, Mr. Jacob Schrag passed away at Kitchener last Thursday, February 26th, in his 38th year. The deceased was born in Baden, a son of Mr. Daniel Schrag and the late Mrs. Schrag. He was married to Bena Kropf, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Chris. Kropf, formerly of New Hamburg. He resided in town for several years and was well known throughout this neighbourhood, having many friends who regret his early demise. He leaves his wife and one daughter, Mayme, besides his father, one brother, Lloyd, of Kitchener, and one sister, Mrs. Simeon Steinman, of Baden, to mourn his passing.

      The funeral was held on Saturday afternoon to the Sterling Avenue Mennonite Church in Kitchener for service, after which the cortege proceeded to the Steinman A.-M. Cemetery, west of Baden, where internment took place. A large circle of sorrowing relatives and friends were in attendance.
