Mrs. Clara Harvey.
Mrs. Clara Harvey, wife of Charles E. Harvey of West Long Branch, died at her home yesterday morning. She was 44 years old and leaves two daughters. Mrs. Harvey had been sick for the past two years. Two years ago she had an operation performed in New York for the removal of a tumor. The operation was successful, but shortly after this she was taken sick with sciatic rheumatism and recently she suffered from nervous prostration. On Sunday this culminated in paralysis of the brain. A few weeks ago she was taken to Asbury Park, but the change proved of no benefit.
Mrs. Harvey had been a member of the Methodist church for the past 25 years, and had been superintendent of the infant department of the Sunday-school for many years. She was also a member of the ladies' aid society and was an energetic church worker. Her funeral will be held on Friday afternoon at two o'clock at the West Long Branch Methodist church. Rev. C. F. Downs will conduct the services, and the interment will be in the West Long Branch cemetery.

EDWARD KEEFE DROWNED.
He Fell Into the Millpond at Eatontown Last Thursday.
Edward Keefe, the seven-year-old son of Robert Keefe of Eatontown, was drowned in the millpond at Eatontown last Thursday afternoon. Young Keefe and several other boys were playing at the pond. Among the boys was John Winters, who is a deaf mute. All the boys except Keefe and Winters went into the mill to get matches to light their cigarettes. When they came out of the mill Keefe was missing and Winters showed by signs that Keefe had fallen in the pond. One of the boys ran to the village for help and William Edwards and Joseph Wolcott responded and they brought Keefe's body to the surface with an eel spear.
Winters's story of the accident was that Keefe's hat fell into the pond and that in leaning over to get it he fell in. There was seven feet of water in the pond. Keefe's funeral was held on Sunday afternoon.
