Tragic Death of
Mary 0. Douthit.
Mii8 Mry Osborne Ionthit, a
pioneer woman of Oregon, author,
teacher and prominent in the
woman's suffrage movement, died
last Saturday at the Good Samari
tan hospital in Portland after being
ran down by a street car at Morri
son and Lownsdale atreeU, that
city. The funeral was held this
week from Holman'a chapel, Tort
land, with interment in that city.
Rev. William G. Eliot, pastor of
the First Unitarian church, to
which she belonged, officiated.
Miss Douthit was born in South
Carolina, coming to Oregon with
her parents in 1S53. The family
first settled in Linn couuty near
Lebanon, where Mr. Douthit en
gaged in farming. Then the Dout
hiU removed to Crook county, tak
rg up their residence at Paulina,
where Mr. Douthit died in 1S7G.
For a number of years Miss Douthit
taught school in this cDunty, later
going to Portland, where she in
structed the young for 15 years
preceding her untimely death. She
was an aunt of Harry and Samuel
Douthit and Mrs. Luther Claypool
Aside from the prominence she
attained in the public eye through
her suffrage affiliation?, Miss Dout
hit became well known as the au
thor of "Pioneer Reunion," a book
relating to reminescences of leading
Oregon and Washington women,
issued in 1905, just prior to the
Lewis and Clark exposition. She
also wrote a number of brilliant
papers on educational and suffrag
ist subjects. She had planned to
lecture on pioneer life during Aug
ust in the coast counties of Oregon.
William C. Ford and Miss Ber
nola Poindexter were married last
evening at the home of the bride,
Dr. Dunsmore officiating. The
wedding was a quiet one, only
immediate relatives of the young
couple being present. Mrs. Dr.
Ong, of Portland, a sister of the
groom, played the wedding march.
Many presents were received by
the young couple. Mr. and Mrs.
Ford left today for Sisters, and
when they return will spend a
month in the mountains.
