NASSAGAWEYA
The funeral last Friday of Pte. L. Kingsbsury, of the 164th Battalion, who was accidently killed while stepping off the train at Camp Borden on Tuesday evening of last week, was one of the largest ever held in Nassagaweya. Brief services were held at the home, and the cortege then proceeded to Ebenezer church, the members of the Nassagaweya platoon, under Capt. Mahon, forming a guard of honor. The services at the church were conducted by Rev. W. K. Allen, M.A., B.D. the pastor, assisted by Rev. E. Milton Carter, B.A., the former pastor. Rev. Mr. Carter preached a very impressive and sympathetic sermon. The Church was crowded to the door, many being unable to gain admission. Interment took place at Ebenezer Cemetery and Pte. Kingsbury was buried with military honors.
