New Haven, Connecticut, January 21 - Mrs. Julia B. Graves, of Middletown, while attending services yesterday morning at the Second Universalist Church, this city, uttered a shriek and fell dead in the arms of her nephew, George E. Gay. There was much excitement among the congregation, and a panic was narrowly averted. The pastor at once closed the service.]
