Mrs. M. A. Albright.

Mrs. Gertrude Albright was born at Mason City, Illinois, September 30, 1870, and died September 15, 1906, at Red Cloud, Nebraska.   Her early life was spent at Mason City, from whence she moved with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Lindley, to Seward, Neb., and from there to Long Island, Kansas.   While there she united with the Presbyterian church, and was an active worker in that church and Sunday school.   Her father died at Long Island and, she, with her mother came to Red Cloud, where she secured the position of teacher in the public schools.   She filled this position successfully for four years, resigning in 1901, in which year she was united in marriage to M. A. Albright, who with their one child, little Helen, a brother, Bert Lindley of Riverton, a sister, Mrs. Chas. Platt and the mother, Mrs. Lindley are left to mourn her untimely death.   The funeral services were conducted by Rev. Austin at the house Monday afternoon, and the remains were followed to their last resting place by a host of sympathizing friends.   The foral tributes were many and beautiful.   Just why Divine Providence should remove from our midst such a beautiful and useful life is a mystery, but God is good and He knows best.   THE CHIEF extends sympathy to the bereaved family.
