interest in the ferry which crosses
the river, and making her home
near the landing, was afflicted by
a severe stroke of paralysis yester
day at her home. Mrs. Doty has en

passing across the room at her home
when the stroke came, which caused
her to fall to the floor.
She remains in a very precarious
condition, with but slight hopes of
her recovering. Mrs. Doty is well
advanced in years and not overly
strong, has made her home near the
river crossing since the death of the
husband a number of years since.
