NORTH BEND WOMAN DIES AT HOSPITAL Mrs. Annn D. Ames, Who Was Re cently Sent to Salem Institution Succumbs There. Word has been received here that Mrs. Anna D Ames, the North Bend woman who was sent to the Oregon State hospital for the Insane at Sa lem a few months ago, died there November 5. The body was sent to relatives at Red Bluff, Cal., where burial will take place. The case was a pitiful one and at the time attracted considerable at tention.

They had three small children who were sent by the Coos county court to relatives of the couple at Red Bluff, Cal. A few years ago, Mrs. Ames was the victim of a sensational attack by an employe of a steamboat while coming here from California, and it is believed that this was the cause of her derangement.
