ARMSTRONG -- At her home in this city, June 8, 1896, of consumption, Mrs. E. Armstrong.

Sarah Alice Outman was born in St. Francis county, Missouri, April 7th, 1861. She was married to Ed. Armstrong Oct. 28, 1884. In the same year that she was married she was converted and united with the M. E. Church, of which she remained a consistent member until the time of her death. A husband, six children, a sister and two brothers are left to mourn her, who has been taken from them. She died firm in the faith of a resurection and a home eternal beyond the grave. The following beautiful poem expresses her faith and her message to the sorrowing ones left behind.

   "There's a beautiful land, a land of light;
   A country just o'er the way,
   Where the sight of life with its gloom and strife
   Fades out into glorious day.

   There are sunny slopes and mountains high,
   And rivalets laughing sweet,
   And voices dear that we've loved so here,
   And the patter of little feet.

   There are loving eyes that we've closed at night,
   Mid sighing and bitter tears,
   They arer beaming 'neath the brows of light,
   Untouched by the frosts of years.

   Look up, ye poor and sufffering,
   Ye weary, troubled and sad,
   Let the eye grow bright,
   With the old time light and the aching heart
   be glad.
