Found Dead in Bed
Mrs. Mary A. VanTassel of New York went to Keyport last Friday, to visit her daughter, Mrs. Hopkins. She complained of the heat and she said she was feeling bad when she went to bed. Her daughter slept with her mother and the next morning when she awoke she found her mother dead in bed. Coroner Tetley of Red Bank viewed the body and gave a permit for burial.
