    • PASSED AWAY At Wellesley, Ont., on Sunday, September 18th, 1938 LEA WILHELM Relict of the late George Bast Aged 90 years, 1 month and l6 days. The Funeral Will he held from her late residence on Wednesday, September last, 1938, at 9.30 a, m., and proceed to the A. Mennonite Church, Third Line, for services. Burial in adjoining cemetery, Please omit flowers.

      The bosom where I oft have lain,
      And slept my infant hours away,
      Will never beat for me again,
      'Tit still in death! 'tie senseless clay.
      How many were the silent prayers
      My mother offered up for me,
      How many were the bitter cares
      She felt when none but God could see,
      Well, she is gone, and now in heaven,
      She sings his praise, who died for her,
      And in her hand a harp is given,
      And she's a heavenly worshiper.
      And let me choose the path she chose,
      And her I soon again may see.
      Beyond this world of sin and woes
      With Jesus in Eternity.
