She Read It In The Paper
That Was the First Mrs. Leach Knew Her Husband Was Dead
There was a pathetic scene in a car at the Central railroad station at Freehold on Monday morning of
last week, when Mrs. Jefferson Leach of New York, who had been visiting Abram Stillwell, a relative,
near Jerseyville, received sudden news of the death of her husband. Mrs. Leach was driven to Freehold
on Monday morning and took a train for New York. Before getting on the car she bought a New York paper
and while in the car began to casually read it. Almost the first words that she read told how her
husband had been killed Sunday while riding his wheel. Mrs. Leach at once became very hysterical
and her grief was pitiable. She remained on the train and reached New York early that afternoon. After
she had left, a telegram arrived at Freehold for "Mrs. Jefferson Leach, care Stillwell," informing her of
her husbandís death.
