Mrs. L. 5. Ainsworth.
The friends of Mr. L. S. Ainsworth
the Paisley merchant, were shocked
Inst week at the announcement that
Mrs. Ainsworth was dead. She was
taken seriously III Monday morning
and Dr. Daly waa called from Lake
view. The Dr. stated that the case
was a serious one and gave little
hojies for the patient's recovery.
At 11 oclock Wednesday night she
died, after suffering for . three days.
The remains were burled fn the Pals
ley cemetery Thursday, and Mr.
Ainsworth left for Berkeley the next
morning where Mrs. AInsworth's
Mr. Ainsworth came to Paisley a
little over a year ago, and entered
Into the merchandise business with
C. L. Withers. He went to Berkeley
and was married to Miss Charlotte
Henley on the 28th day of September,
1904. They came to Paisley to make
their home and were happy. They
built a neat little home and were
living in supreme happiness when the
cold hand of death blasted the hopes
of a happy aud contented house
hold. Many friend i sj-mpathizi! and bow
their heads in grief with the bereav

Mr. Boone tells an amusing Inci
dent that occurred while his house
was under quarantine. An oldish
like couple drove up In front of the
house in a hack and apparently did
not know who lived there or did not
observe the sign, for the man alight
ed from the rig and tried to open the
gate, which was securely wired up.
After several futile attempts to opn
tin gate the old gentleman climbed
ever and started to where Mr.
Boone was working down in
the garden, quite a distance from the
Mr. Boone saw the man climb the
gate, but said nothing until he dad
got fairly over, when Boone made
a rush toward the man and yelled,
"Smallpox," at the top of his voice.
The fellow whirled and started for
the gate in a run; he did not take
time to climb back but made a des
perate leap. His feet came in contact
with :he pickets aud over he weut,
head first onto the sidewalk. The
woman, who was sitting ou the
wagon holding the horses, at the
word Smallpox," grabWd the whip
and put; the bud to the horses. The
old gentleman lost some time In
scrambling to get loose' from the
ijatc, but when Le gjalried Ltd feet and
started up the road' he made it up
again. Mr. Boone did hot know
who the people were, but 'was cer
