      Gasho. - On the 7th of September, in Livingston county, Ill., JOHN GASHO, aged 62 years. He was buried on the 8th, followed by a large concourse of friends and relatives. Funeral sermons were preached by John Egly, John P. Schmitt and Christian Schloegel from I Cor. 15, and I Thess. 4:13-18. He was a pious man, beloved by all and a light in our Church. He observed daily prayer with his family, came regular to meeting and appreciated humility. He often complained about the pride prevailing among our young people. He also said before he expired that he had a desire to depart and to be with Christ. He was a faithful member of the Omish Mennonite Church, where the funeral service was preached, in Livingston county, Ill
