Mrs. W. E. Allen (Carrie Yarger) died at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Yarger, adjoining town on the east, Sunday morning at 7:30 o'clock after an illness of three months. The cause of her death was bilious fever with other complications. She was seventeen years, five months and thirteen days of age.

Spears, pastor of the Christian church and interment made in the Marysville cemetery.
Carrie R. M. Yarger was born in this city on May 19, 1891 and grew to young womanhood in our midst. She was united in marriage to W. E. Allen on December 13, 1907, and for several months they made their home in Summerfield and from there they removed to Oketo. From Oketo they moved to Valley Falls where they continued to reside until deceased was taken ill and was brought to the home of her parents that she might receive the care of her mother during her illness. Medical attention and the best of care were hers but in the strife for life the disease won the victory and death claimed its own Sunday morning. Besides her husband she is survived by her parents and several sisters and brothers. To the parents the removal by death of their daughter in the bloom of her youth and young womanhood has been a hard blow and tenderest sympathy is given them by many sorrowing friends in their bereavement.}
