Mrs. Dora E. Smith, 68, wife of Frank H. Smith, died at 11:30 o'clock Sunday morning at her home, 425 North Eighth street. She had been ill several weeks after suffering a paralytic stroke. Mrs. Smith had lived in Arkansas City for 49 years. She was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Aaron Lashbrook.

She was a native of Garden City, Minn. She and Mr. Smith were married at Lowell, Kas., July 7, 1889. They would have celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary this year. Mrs. Smith was a member of the Central Christian church. Mr. Smith, who has been in the grocery business at his home for 15 years, was formerly the owner of a tin shop here.
