Frank Jaynes , youngest son of Mr. Joseph Jaynes, lost his life in the fire that occurred at the home about 12 o'clock Saturday night. The residence, almost totally consumed, was situated on East Elm Street, between the P.M. church and the residence of Mrs. Rubamah Johnson, and was formerly known as the Samuel Butt's property. Mr. Jaynes and sons William and Frank were living together. The father and William had retired for the night. Frank, who had been in Zanesville, returned on the late Z.& W. train and it is presumed went immediately home. The father, who had not yet gone to sleep, heard the son enter and proceed to prepare himself a lunch. The father, it seems, fell asleep within a few moments afterwards, awakening about an hour later to find the house in flames. The origin is not known, but it is supposed that the fire in some manner originated from the lamp the son used while preparing his lunch. The father and son William made their escape uninjured, but when they sought to rescue the other member of the family they were forced back by the terrible flames. Every possible effort was made by the fireman and ___ to rescue him, but to no avail. As soon as the flames were sufficiently extinguished in that part of the building, entrance was made through a window, but it was found that the unfortunate man had been suffocated.

Frank Jaynes, the seventh son of Joseph and Mattie Jaynes, was born in Shawnee, Ohio, on May 23, 1886, being at the time of his death aged 28 year, four months and three days. He lived all his life in Shawnee, and having never married, made his home with his father. He spent his life working in the mines and at the brick factory and was skilled in the art of temporing clay. He was of a quiet disposition and enjoyed the friendship of a large circle of his fellow townsmen.

Two brothers have proceeded him to the spirit world. Samuel, who died in infancy and Charley who died July 24, 1891, at the age of 8 years. His mother died August 22, 1912. He leaves in their sad mourning his father, four brothers, John,  James, William and George and one sister, May Jaynes Robinette, together with a host of other relatives and friends.

"Leaves have their time to fall, and flowers to wither at the north wind's breath, and stars to set - but all - Thou hast all seasons for Thine own, O Death!" For the death-angel has knocked at the bedchamber of a happy home, and one of our loved ones has answered his summons.
