          Mrs. Ada Temperley, wife of  Matthew Temperley  of this city, died yesterday at the Morrison House at 10:40 o'clock in the morning, after prolonged illness and intense suffering.  She had every attention that kindness and affection could suggest during her protracted agony, but human skill was unavailing to save her life.  Among these who came to attend at Mrs. Temperley's bedside were her brother, Mr. Edwin F. Maxwell, of Tipton, Indiana, and her cousin, Mrs. Willela Warren, of Mt. Vernon, Ohio.  Miss Ada Maxwell  was born at Brookville, Franklin county, Indiana, on the 13th day of February, 1861.  She died on May 24th, 1885, in her twenty-fourth year.  She came to Shelbyville in 1876 to live with her sister,  Miss Lizzie Maxwell, who died here last summer.  On the 4th of August, 1881, Miss Ada Maxwell was married to Mr. Matthew Temperley in this city.  She was a member of the Presbyterian church, at Brookville.  Among her acquaintances Mrs. Temperley was highly esteemed, having many of those traits of character which made her lately deceased sister so popular in this city.  The Maxwell family has been peculiarly unfortunate and has been called on to bear more than the usual burden of human sorrows, trials and tribulations.  In this latest affliction the sincere sympathies of our whole community will go out to the bereaved relatives.  The funeral services of Mrs. Temperley will take place on Tuesday at 2:30 o'clock in the Presbyterian church, on Broadway street, funeral discourse by the Rev. T. L. Hughes.  Interment will take place in the Forest Hill cemetery. 
          The following gentlemen have been selected to act as pall bearers:  John Greer,  W. A. Silvers,  Alfred Louch,  Louis Shaffer, Sen.,  P. D. Harris  and  Caughey Fleming.  D. B. Wilson, funeral director.
