    • Death of Mrs. Armstrong - Following a short illness of pneumonia, the death occurred on Sunday morning at 3.30 o'clock of Mrs. Robert S. Armstrong, in her 70th year. She was born in Orono, Durham County, and married on January 23rd, 1878. Mr. and Mrs. Armstrong had arranged to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of their marriage on January the 23rd of this year, but owing to Mrs. Armstrong falling ill, the celebration was not held. Deceased came to Ayr with her husband 34 years ago, and was highly esteemed for her many fine qualities by practically everyone in the community. She attended the Anglican Church, and was always ready to lend assistance in any worthy cause. Besides her husband, she is survived by one son and two daughters, as follows: John E., Mrs. John Henderson and Miss Mary, all of Ayr. Four sisters also survive, viz.: Mrs. John Sleep, Carsonville, Mich.; Mrs. George Sheriff, Toronto; Mrs. James Patton, Toronto; and Miss Bella Watson, Orono. The funeral, which took place to Ayr Cemetery on Tuesday afternoon, was largely attended. The services were in charge of Rev M r. Dobson, and the following gentlemen acted as pallbearers: Messrs. George Brown, Pt. Nelson; Willard Ingram, Mitchel, William Leithead, William Manson, Murdo Lillico and Walter Clark.
