Carver of Red Bank and William Carver of Philadelphia by her second marriage, and Mrs. Laura Morris of Red Bank, Mrs. H. B. Harrison of Jersey City, and Misses Susie and Nellie Asay of Red Bank.

Mrs. Mary Stradling.
Mrs. Mary Stradling died at Ocean Grove on Tuesday of last week, aged 60 years. She had been sick with malarial fever and had been in the habit of taking small quantities of opium.
