      Gonzales Pays Final Tribute To Memory Of Prominent Citizen

      Friday afternoon Gonzales paid her final tribute of love and esteem to the memory of W. H. Ainsworth, prominent citizens and alderman, whose remains were consigned to their last resting place with appropriate ceremonies.
      It was one of the largest funerals ever seen in Gonzales, and it was a representative gathering of citizens of both town and country, who assembled at the family residence at 4:30 o'clock in his honor, Mr. Ainsworth having been widely known and great esteemed.
      The impressive burial service of the Methodist church, who gave a brief sketch of his life, paying high tribute to his life, paying high tribute to his record. Prayer was offered by Dr. W. K. Penrod, pastor of the First Baptist church. A touching feature of the service was the rendition by a mixed quartet of two songs, "The Christians Goodnight." The casket, and indeed the entire living room where the service was held, was a veritable bower of beautiful floral tributes.
      As the active pall bearers, B. B. Hoskins Jr., J. C. Newberry, J. W. Vernor, J. S. Douglass, N. D. Cone, J. D. Jones, J. G. Crockett and J. T. Parr bore the casket to the hearse, the members of the I. O. O. F. Lodge, who attended the funeral in a body wearing the full regalia, were drawn up in double column on either side of the entrance. The remains were followed to the I.O.O.F. cemetery by a long line of cars.
      Arrived there the members of the lodge of which he had been a prominent member for years, consigned all that was mortal of their lamented brother to its final resting place with the solemn burial service of the order, Ernest Wade, Noble Grand, acting as master of ceremonies, assisted by Frank Tenberg, chaplain of the lodge.
      The rendition of a solo, "In the Garden," a favorite hymn of Mr. Ainsworth, by A. P. Peirce, with violin accompaniment by Mrs. Fred Boothe, was a beautiful feature of the service, which concluded with a benediction pronounced by Rev. H. M. Ratliff.
      The wreath of floral offerings that rested in fragrant benediction on the new made grave was magnificent mantling even the graves of loved ones gone before, all conveying an eloquent message of sympathy to the sorrowing ones, while attesting to the wide esteem, the warm place he held in the hearts of the many who had been associated with him, both in public and private life.
      There were many lovely tributes from relatives and friends residing elsewhere, and numerous special offerings from organizations, including exquisite tributes from the local I.O.O.F lodge, the Rebekahs, the Oak Forest W.O.W., the local Camp W.O.W. and Woodmen Circle, and the Knights of Pythias, Mr. Ainsworth having been a popular member of all these orders; a hand some offering from the City Council, of which he had been a prominent member for eight years, often presiding over that body as mayor protem; special offerings from the Ladies Aid and the Women's Missionary Society of the First Methodist church, and a beautiful one from the Beau-Nots.
      All the business house of the city closed in his honor during the funeral.
      The honorary pall bearers were: Dr. W. T. Dawe, B. B. Hoskins Sr., F. E. Shuler, S. Stahl, J. C. Wilson, R. C. Botts, Judge J. C. Remberg, Thad Cardwell, J. W. Bright, F. M. Fly T. E. Stephensen, E. C. Colley,H. Gurinsky, Conde Hoskins, T. B. Fussell, Geo. Holmes, Dr. W. T. Dunning, J. W. Crawford, J. H. Daniel; Judge C. Sampson, R. R. Wood, F. C. Humphrey of Georgetown; I. K. Howell, Ft. Worth; Rev. Gaston Hartsfield, San Marcos.
      A number of relatives from a distance were in attendance at the funeral.
      In Mr. Ainsworth's passing, Gonzales mourns the loss of one of her best citizens, a Christian, actuated by high ideals, both in his public and private life,and he will be sadly missed in the city's public life and business circles as well as by his church.
      Mr. Ainsworth was born in Tennessee, Oct. 22, 1867, and was a son of S. N. Ainsworth, a native of New York, and was born in George. He passed the greater part of his life in Texas and had lived in Gonzales approximately twenty years.
      Besides his wife and his aged mother, who lives in Austin, seven sons survive him, Miller, Spencer, Horace, Denton and Garrison Ainsworth, these being the older sons, and little Billy, Ford and Edward, Ainsworth, the three little sons, one daughter, Mrs. Emil Kuehne of Austin, and one grandson, Benjamin Ainsworth Kuehne of Austin.
      He also leaves three brothers, N. R. Ainsworth of Houston, Ezra Ainsworth of Dallas, and L. M. Ainsworth of Austin, and one sister, Mrs. William Douglass of Sulphur, Okla.
      May the Heavenly Father who "shall wipe away all tears," comfort and keep these loved ones in their hour of sorrow.
