Mrs. Henry Ahrnken, of Sand Spring, died very unexpectedly last Tuesday morning. Mrs. Ahrnken will be better known to many as Mrs. Margaretta Oltmanns, formerly of Wayne township, where she had made her home until less than two weeks before her death. She was married just two weeks ago to-day, to Mr. Ahrnken, by Rev Schutz, of the Scotch Grove Lutheran church. Her death was caused by cancer of the liver. She had been unwell during the greater part of the winter but felt much better about the time of her recent marriage, and it was not thought that her trouble was serious She leaves seven children, four sons and three daughters. One of the daughters is married. She was in the 56th year of her age. The funeral will be conducted at 11 o'clock to-morrow morning, in Wayne township, by Rev Mardorf.
