Mennonites Leave Mexico

About 1,600 Mennonites, who left the Wynard and Herbert districts of this province several months ago to form a colony in Mexico, have passed through this place on their way back to their farms.

Mexico offered no such opportunities as they had been led to expect through the glowing description which induced them to migrate, the returning Mennonites said. The colonists carried with them their implements; stock and other farm equipment chartering special trains for the trip.
