      The late Mr. Ainsworth was born at Barrow-on-Soar in Leicestershire, England, and was aged 50 years, 2 months and 8 days. He had a lengthy war service, having been a member of the Imperial Army for 19 years. A portion of this time was spent at the Channel Islands and in India and Egypt. He also served in France during the entire four years of the Great War. Mr. Ainsworth was married in England in. 1909 to Alexandria Low and came to Canada in the year 1920. Besides leaving his widow, he is survived by his mother, one daughter, Ethel and one son, Leslie. There are also three brothers, Albert, John, and Herbert, all of Elmira and one sister, Mary, residing in England. One sister predeceased him ten years ago.

      The funeral, which was held on Monday afternoon, was very largely attended, besides the many relatives and friends, a number of war veterans were present. After a short service at the home, the remains were taken to Wesley United Church, of which church Mr. Ainsworth was a valued member of the choir, The pastor, Rev. J. Ure Stewart, officated at the services and took as the subject of his discourse, "Fight the Good Fight," and the choir sang a selection in memory of their deceased member.

      The pall-hearers were six ex-service men, namely, Messrs. Harry Henson, William J. Jackson, William J. Johnston, Oscar Lutz, Otto Rook and Edward Plant. Many floral tributes testified to the high esteem in which the late Mr. Ainsworth was held. The remains were interred in the Elmira Cemetery.
