Lefever. - Sister Hettie Herr, wife of Bro. Frank S. Lefever of Lampeter, Pa., entered into rest at the Lancaster, General Hospital July 19, 1916, following an operation performed on July 10; aged 50 y. 1 m. 9 d.

She is survived by her husband and these children: Ada, wife of Isaac Hollinger, Isaac, Mary, Leaman, Cora, and Martin. Also her aged mother, 5 brothers and 4 sisters. The family have the sympathy of the entire community in their sorrow, made doubly sad, since only 7 months ago the beloved, and oldest daughter was called from this family circle; and while the parting here is sad, over yonder on the shores of eternal glory, the meeting between mother and daughter brings only joy and gladness. She will be greatly missed in the home, where her loving, unselfish nature made her ever ready to sacrifice for her loved ones. In the Brick Church, of which she was a faithful and consistent member, and where her place was never vacant unless health did not permit, and in the community where she was ever ready to assist and lend a helping hand to those in sickness or distress. It is hard to realize that we shall see her face no more, and while we cherish her memory dearly, let us strive to live more faithful, and say in the language of the poet, God knows best.

He was preceded in death by his daughter (Hannah ), 1 brother (Isaac), and 1 sister (Florence). He was united in marriage to Fannie Good of East Petersburg, Pa., Aug. 21, 1924. To this union were born 3 children. Surviving him are his widow, 1 son (Ernest), 1 daughter (Rhoda), his father and mother, 7 sisters, and 6 brothers. In his infancy he with his parents moved to the farm on which he lived practically all his life. In May his health began to fail. Doctors were at a loss to know the reason for it, and finally found his liver was enlarged; the rarest type of its kind. He never suffered pain but got weaker until Sep t. 2, at 3 P. M., he peacefully passed away. He left us with the assurance that he was saved and was anxiously awaiting the Lord to come and take him home. Being so young, he was much needed yet; but we resign to God 's will. He was a kind and loving husband and father, of a devoted and peaceful disposition. He will be missed in the home, Church, community and business. A large concourse of friends gathered to pay their last tribute of respect to one who was much loved.

Funeral services were conducted Sept. 5 at the home by Bro. A. 0. Histand and at the Doylestown Mennonite Meeting House by Bro. J. A. Heatwole of Colorado and Bro. Joseph Gross. Texts, Jno. 14; II Thess. 4:13-18. Interment in adjoining cemetery.

He suffered from a heart condition; and since the passing of his beloved companion 9 months ago was failing in health. Saturday morning, Aug. 7, he was stricken with a heart attack from which he did not recover. His death was a great shock to many as he always appeared in good health and was able to fulfill his duties. Since childhood he had never spent a day in bed until the day before his passing. For almost 44 years he served as a minister in the Doylestown Mennonite Church, having been ordained Nov. 11, 1896. He served as a bishop in the Franconia Conference 21 years, having been ordained to this office April 11, 1922. To these callings he endeavored to render a faithful stewardship. The service of the Lord was ever first in his thoughts and life. One of his chief enjoyments was to visit the homes of his members and especially the aged and sick. In this ministry he shall greatly be missed.

Funeral services were held Aug. 13 from his late residence by Bro. John Lapp, and at the Doylestown Mennonite Church by Bros. Joseph Gross and Arthur Ruth. Texts, Phil. 1:20-24 and II Tim. 4:6-8. These were the expression of his own heart during his last days. Interment in adjoining cemetery.

ELI B. HOOVER, proprietor of the Piney Creek Mill, situated on Piney Creek, in Huston Township, Blair County, Pa., is also the owner of a valuable farm of seventy acres and his combined industries make of him a very busy man. Mr. Hoover was born near Woodbury, in Bedford County, Pa., November 11, 1873, and is a son of George and Elizabeth (Baker) Hoover, both of whom spent their entire lives in Bedford County. Eli B. Hoover was reared in his native county and attended school at Woodbury, after which he assisted his father on the home farm and also in a saw mill that then he operated. Mr. Hoover remained in Bedford County until 1897, when he moved into Taylor Township, Blair County, where he followed farming for a time and continued in that line for several years after removing to Ore Hill. In the spring of 1908 he acquired his present property in Huston Township, and since then has operated both mill and farm. His mill is so constructed that the same machinery, which is operated both by water power and steam, can be utilized for a saw mill, a chop mill and a cider mill, and his custom comes from a wide surrounding territory. On March 14, 1897. Mr. Hoover was married in Bedford County, to Miss Lizzie Guyer, a daughter of Jacob and Esther Guyer, who lived near Loysburg, and five children have been born to them: Mabel G., Esther E., Frederick, Grace and J. Aaron. Mr. and Mrs. Hoover are members of the Church of the Brethren, at Martinsburg. In politics he is a Republican but never has been willing to serve in any public office except that of school director in Taylor Township, in which he proved capable and valuable.
