Flanders, Mrs. Mary Church and Mrs. Harry Work all of Ellsworth, also two brothers, James Yarger of Russell and Warren Yarker of Griswold, Iowa are expected.  A brother Wm. Yarker of Cleveland, Ohio and a sister, Mrs. H. Tomlinson of Johnstown, Pa, will perhaps be unable to come.

Mrs. Armstrong will be sorely missed in all the circles of the church but she has gone to a blessed reward after a life of faithful witnessing for the Master.
