      Widely Known Lutheran Minister Passes Away at Cumberland.

      Rev. Dr. Luther Ambrose Mann, pastor emeritus of St. John's Lutheran church, Cumberland, Md., died yesterday morning after a year's illness which began with an attack of the grip. Rev. Dr. Mann was compelled to give up his pastorate at St. John's on account of his illness. he built the church, going to Cumberland when the congregation was small and without a home.

      He was born of Pennsylvania parentage in Loudoun county, Virginia. He attended school at Winchester and later at Roanoke College, from which he was graduated. He entered the Lutheran ministry at the beginning of the Civil War, when he married, and he and his wife helped the sick and wounded soldiers. After building up a large congregation at Littlestown, Pa., and later serving at Mercersburg, Pa., he went to Cumberland and took charge of St. John's in 1903. He is survived by his widow, five sons - Rev. William Mann, Donora, Pa.; Prof. Paul Mann, Roanoke College; Ernest Mann, Philadelphia; John Mann, Washington State; Luther A. Mann, Cumberland - and one daughter, Mrs. Carrie Young. His body will be taken to Middletown, this county, Friday morning for interment.
