Mr. Frank Armstrong arrived here on Friday last with the remains of his wife, Mrs. Lizzie Witwer Armstrong, for burial. She died of quick consumption at their home near Abilene, Kansas. She had only been married seven years. She leaves a husband and two children, boys, one six years old, the other a babe of five months, a father, two sisters, and two brothers, who live near Coleta, to mourn her loss.
