MRS. BAYARD GOES TO HER REST

WASHINGTON, Feb. 1. -

Mrs. Bayard, wife of the secretary of state, died at her residence in this city at 8:30 yesterday morning. The immediate cause of Mrs. Bayard's death was congestion of the brain, brought on by the shock of her daughter's sudden death two weeks ago. For the first week following the event she stood the strain and excitement quite well, but a week ago last Friday she was compelled to take to her bed, and gradually grew worse day by day. On Thursday congestion of the brain made its appearance. She was unconscious twenty-four hours before he death. Although for years Mrs. Bayard had been a confirmed invalid, she had for the late six months been in better health than for many years. Last summer she was very ill at her home in Wilmington with a complication of diseases of the liver and stomach, and her recovery at that time was considered doubtfull. At the solicitation of her daughter, Miss Kate, she put herself under the care of Dr. T.A. Gardner, of this city, and under his treatmnt she had improved much.
