Mr. C. W. Armstrong died at his home on North Millington street, Saturday night. For years he has been quite feeble from age, and in the last year bronchitis has been doing its deadly work, finally carrying him off. He was in his sixtieth year and leaves a wife, a son, and three daughters. He was a devout member of the Baptist church. His life was long and very useful. In his younger days, before the debilities of age put their ban on excessive energy, he was one of the most active men in both mind and body. The funeral was deferred to await the arrival of absent relatives and occurred Tuesday, at 10 o’clock, from his late residence, conducted by Rev. J. H. Reider.

H. B. Miller, of John Tyner’s grocery house, was fifty-one years old Saturday. He had passed a number of birthdays before and took it as a matter of common moment until Saturday evening, when his home was raided by as happy a little company as ever assembled anywhere, composed of Rev. and Mrs. J. H. Reider, Mr. and Mrs. Benj. Cutler, Mr. and Mrs. Roderick, Mr. and Mrs. Hefner, Mr. and Mrs. Sage, Mrs. M. Iliff, Mrs. O. L. Armstrong, Messrs. John Tyner, J. A. Miller, E. Jamison, J. F. Reddick, and Master Otis Cutler. Mr. Miller was completely surprised, and when the presentation of a very fine, large arm chair was made, he was “broken up” worse than ever. However, the genial life of the donors soon put him on his pins sufficiently to express his warm appreciation of the kind remembrance and the genuine friendship displayed.
