      ________________________

      On the 20th of Sept., 1900, at New Hamburg, Ontario, Bro. Henry R. Cassel, as we trust, fell asleep in Jesus, at the advanced age of 65 years, 4 months and 12 days. He suffered with Bright,s disease for a little over eight months, and had a desire to go home and be with Christ which is far better. He was born in Montgomery Co., Pa., and leaves a widow, two sons and one daughter to mourn his death. Funeral services were held at the Blenheim M. H. on the 23rd, were largely attended, and conducted at the house by Jos. Nargang and Isaiah Rosenberger, and at the M. H. by Noah Stauffer, from Isa. 38: 1, and by Amos S. Cressman from Heb. 2: 6.
