Cecil Armstrong, Who Died Yesterday, Will Be Buried in Riverview Cemetery.
  Cecil, the eighteen year old son of Mr. and Mrs. George Armstrong, of Reading, whose death was mentioned in yesterday’s Free Press, will be buried from the home Friday afternoon at 2 o’clock.
  Mr. Armstrong had been troubled with consumption for many years but it was only about a year ago that he was considered near the danger line. He was in his second year at the local high school when he had to discontinue his studies on account of the illness. Many of the students were well acquainted with him and they will regret to hear of his death. There will probably be many of the students at the funeral.
  The decedent is survived by his parents and two brothers, Ray and Arlie.
