Riviere H. Sneden, a member of the drug firm of Cooper & Sneden, died at his home on Riverside avenue on Friday aged 29 years and 10 months. His death was caused by catarrh of the stomach. On Monday of last week he was taken sick while at the store but managed to ride to his home on his bicycles. On arriving home he took to his bed and sank rapidly until his death.
Mr. Sneden was born in Red Bank and was the son of William S. Sneden. He had been engaged in the drug business ever since he left school. He was first employed in a drug store at Long Branch. Afterward he took a position in F. T. Chadwick's drug store in Red Bank. While there he passed the required examination before the state board of pharmacy and became a registered pharmacist. Nine years ago he entered the employ of James Cooper, Jr., at the corner of Broad and White streets. Four years later the firm of Cooper & Sneden was formed, Mr. Sneden being the junior partner.
A year ago last fall Mr. Sneden married Miss Anna G. Hubbard, daughter of James Hubbard of Middletown township. Since his marriage he has lived on Allen place, nearly opposite his father's house on Riverside avenue. He was very popular with the young men of the town, and was a member of the Knights of Pythias lodge, the Red Men's tribe and the Shrewsbury canoe club.
The funeral was held on Monday afternoon at the house. The services were conducted by Rev. Robert MacKellar and the interment was at Fair View. The pall bearers were Joseph Applegate, Robert Barrows, John H. Mount, Whitall S. Hill, James Cooper, Jr., and Ensley E. Morris.
Edward Martin, who had been a farmer near West Freehold for nearly twenty years, died of apoplexy at that place on Sunday of last week, aged 76 years. About three years ago he had a stroke of paralysis and since that time he had been in feeble health.
Mr. Martin was born in Ireland and came to this country in 1848. He engaged in business in New York and was a member of the lace and linen importing firm of Martin & Morrison. In 1877 he bought a farm at West Freehold and lived on it up to the time of his death. Before moving to West Freehold he lived at Mount Vernon, where he held the office of supervisor. On leaving there he received a gift of a silver punch bowl by the citizens of that place, in acknowledgement of his services to the town. He was a Free Mason and belonged to the lodge at Freehold. A widow survives him.

Armstrong of Fair Haven performed an operation, but it failed to produce the desired result.
