BX March 24, 1919

Mrs. Orin Maus received the sad intelligence yesterday morning that her son, Private Daniel Showers Maus had succumbed on March 20 in the Royal Herbert Hospital, Woolwich, to throat trouble. Private Maus who was with the 8th Battalion, was on his way to Germany when he contracted influenza, which later developed into throat trouble, from which he passed away. He was on the firing line since June, 1915, without receiving a scratch. Deceased was an engineer on the C.P.R., and shortly after war was declared he enlisted with the 52nd Battalion at Port Arthur, and on arrival in England was drafted into the 8th Battalion, 1st Division, with which unit he had been ever since. Deceased was born at Paris Plains North, was in his 19th year and was the youngest son of the late Orin and Mrs. Maus. He grew to manhood on the farm and went west about 14 years ago, where he had since resided. Besides his widowed mother, he leaves one brother and two sisters: Jairus of Hamilton, Mrs. Laidlaw of Drumbo, and Mrs. Slade of Toronto, who will have the sympathy of the community in their sorrow.
