The many friends of the family will learn with regret of the death of C. P. H . Steffens which took place suddenly o n Wednesday night at Kamploops hos pital to which place he -was removed a few days ago from his home at Mamette Lake.
Mr. Steffens had been ailing for some time but did not think there was anything of a serious nature the matter. Dr. Curtin was called early last week a nd found the patient to be suffering from a severe case of gall stones and advised his immediate removal to the hospital for an operation. By the time he arrived at Kamloops, however, his condition was so serious that the operation could not be performed and no hope for the saving of his life could be given.
Besides a devoted wife, deceased, who was in his 56th year, leaves eleven children to mourn his loss, as follows; Mrs . Fred Baker, Ashcroft: Mrs M: Baillie, Princeton road, George H., New Westminster; Sophia, Rupert, Fritz, James, Thomas, Carl, Frank and Dick at home.

Steffens was a native of Holstein, Germany, andcame to America when a boy.After remaining for some years in the United States and South America, he came to Canada, settling in Ashcroft 74 years ago.

present ranch at Mamette lake about seven years ago.
Miss Sophia Steffens left for Kamloops and will return tomorrow , accompanied by Mrs. Baker, with the remains. Internment will take place at thy ranch on Sunday.
