Miss Emma Fennelly Died After Five Days' Suffering.

Miss Emma Fennelly died at Asbury Park on Tuesday of last week after suffering five days with hiccups. She was 28 years old and had been sick for some weeks. On the Thursday before her death she was taken with the hiccups. The spasms of coughing continued for hours at a time with no intermissions. All sorts of remedies were tried, but the hiccups could not be stopped and they continued until her death. Brief relief was obtained by swallowing nine swallows of water without taking a breath, but the hiccups began again almost immediately. After the hiccups had continued a day the constant jarring of the internal organs caused intense pain and narcotics had to be administered to obtain relief.
