Mrs. Maninger Passes Away.
Mrs. Magdalena MANINGER passed away Friday, April 14th at her home in Harper after a long illness. The funeral was held Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock form the Apostolic German church, after short services had been held from the residence. Rev. KURTZ of Burlington, Ok., officiated. The remains were laid to rest in the Apostilic cemetery by the side of her husband who died two years ago.
Magdalene SMITH was born in Carlock, Ill., May 11th, 1841. Her parents came from France in 1831. She was married to Peter NEWHAUSER in 1860. To that union three children were born, all with the husband having preceeded her in death. She was married to Valentine MANINGER in 1866. To this union seven sons and one daughter were born.

Mrs. MANINGER came to Kansas with her family in the early eighties and had since made this state her home. She had united with the Apostolic church in girlhood and had lived true to the faith ever since.
