  • Notes 
    • St. Agatha A gloom has been cast over the village by the comparatively sudden death of Mrs. Henry Zimmer, who was found in an unconscious condition by her husband on his return from church Sunday morning and succumbed to heart failure a few moments later. Mrs. Zimmer was a resident of this village for almost fifty years and will be missed by all who knew her as her kind and friendly disposition, together with her many deeds of charity will long be remembered. She leaves a husband and ten children to mourn the loss of a loving wife and mother. The children are: Louis, of St. Agatha, William and Alex, of Dashwood, Simon and Tony, of Newbury. N. D., Carl, of Milwaukee, Henry, John, Mrs. Albert Rupert, and Lizzie, of Buffalo. We extend our deepest sympathies to the bereaved family.
