Mrs. Henry Gaylord died this morning at 4 o'clock at her home, No. 7 Congress Street, from a complication of diseases from which she had suffered for the past three years. Many trips for changes of climate and medical aid were taken, but without improvement of her condition. Year before last she took several months in California, and last summer and fall were spent in Colorado. The funeral will be held Wednesday afternoon at 1:30 o'clock in the United Presbyterian Church. Rev. W. H. Anderson will conduct the service. Interment will be made in Maplewood Cemetery.
