Young  Woman,  Well  Known  Here,
Passed  Away  After  Extended  Illness
          Mrs. Willie May Robison, about 27 years old, known well in this city, died at 2:-- o'clock Thursday afternoon at Bakersfield, Cal, following a lingering illness of tuberculosis.  she was the daugther of  Mrs. Mattie McGinnis, 530 east Washington street, and had often visited in this city.
          The death of Mrs. Robinson is a great shock to many friends here.  She had been taken to Bakersfield, Cal., several months ago for the benefit of her health, but the change failed to bring an improvement in her condition.  The body is being taken to Danville, Ky., her former home, for burial.
          Surviving besides the mother and step-father, Robert McGinnis, is the husband, John Robinson.  She also leaves three brothers,  Chester,  Robert,  and  Walter Corley, all of this city.
