Mrs. Esther Brown Hill, wife of Rev. Charles E. Hill of Red Bank, died of paralysis last Thursday, aged 74 years. She was taken down with the

declined rapidly from that time.
Mrs. Hill was born at Knox, New York. She married Rev. Charles E. Hill in 1849. They celebrated their golden wedding two years ago. She had

Bank; Mrs. Charles G. Hill of Newark, William C. Hill of New York and Mrs. Francis R. Fithian of Camden.
The funeral was held on Monday at half-past one o'clock at the house. The service was in charge of Rev. A. E. Ballard of Ocean Grove. Other
ministers who took part in the service were Rev. S. H. Thompson of the Presbyterian church, Rev. John B. Haines of the First Methodist church,
