      A SAD SCENE
      On Tuesday evening the 9th of August about 7 o'clock Bro. Allen Eby, son of Eld. Amos Eby, and Bro. Simon Moyer, son of Jonas Moyer, both living near Berlin, Waterloo Co., Ontario, were killed by lightning while standing under a tree. They had gone out into the field to plow after supper, and after having plowed a few rounds, they saw a shower coming and they sought shelter under a tree in the adjoining field where the lightning struck them and instantly killed both. Their wives, after hearing the severe stroke, went out to see if it had struck the barn, and while thus looking they saw the horses running in the field, and not seeing the men they went in search for them, and found them lying under the burning tree. What a shock must this have been, to find their dear husbands lifeless before them. They lald them to one side and went after help.

      Allen Eby's age was 27 years, 10 months and 21 days. He leaves a widow with one child to mourn their loss.

      Simon Moyer's age was 26 years, 5 months and 20 days. He leaves a widow to mourn her loss. They were buried side by side in the Eby Cemetery, Berlin, on the 11th of August. This was the saddest funeral we ever witnessed. The entire community was stirred, and all seemed to deeply sympathize with these two young widows and breaved friends. It is estimated that over 1,500 people were present at the burial. The services were conducted by Eld. H. Goudie at the house, and H. S. Hallman and Eld. Yaeger at the church. What a blessed thing it is to be ready. Then let death come by lightning or any other way, and it will be all right. Gospel Banner.
