Orpha, daughter of George and Carrie Lyons, died January 22nd, 1899, aged 11 years, 7 months and 3 days. Orpha was a special favorite among her playmates, always cheerful, obedient and full of that goodness that always goes to make a child loved by everybody. She was just blooming into womanhood and, having a bright mind, was attaining the accomplishments of an esteemed and useful woman. Her death is doubly sad, having been in seeming perfect health up to a week before she died, and suffering untold agony up to the last moment. She is deeply missed yet she is at rest-that only such as her can attain. Anna Martha Luttrop. This lady was born near Cassell, Germany, January 6th, 1830.

At this place deceased resided until her death, which occurred Saturday, January 28th, 1899. Mrs. Hirlinger always was caused by paralysis.
