MEMORIAL SERVICES. – The services at the Monumental Church yesterday in memory of the late E. W. Ross were largely attended. Among others, there were present many Knights if Pythias and members of the Masonic Order. Rev. Dr. Woodbridge’s remarks on the occasion were earnest and impressive, and the choir sang an appropriate hymn in fine style. Mr. Ross’ remains have not yet been recovered.
