      ____________________________

      On Wednesday evening word reached here of the death of Mr. A. R. Strome near Floradale. He had been working on the roof of his barn, aided by Mr. John Brox. After the latter went home deceased kept on with the work and was found shortly after lying dead at the gable end of the barn. He had fallen from the roof and apparently struck the ground head foremost as his neck was broken. Deceased leaves a sorrowing widow and nine children. Milton lives in Berlin, Melvin in Rochester, Astor, Ezra, Ervin and Orrin at Engelfeldt, Sask. Mrs. D. O. Robertson, Elmira is the oldest daughter. The other two, Shirley and Annie are at home. Deceased was of a quite disposition, and was highly respected by all who were acquainted with him. The funeral will be held on Saturday forenoon, leaving the home at 9.30 for Elmira Union cemetery. After burial there will be a funeral service in Zion Evangelical church. The deepest sympathy of the entire community goes out to the bereaved family.
