34 .......THE LATE MRS. WILLIAM WARD.........
Funeral services will be held over the remains of Mrs. Julia Griswold Tyng Ward at the Church of the Holy Trinity, in Madison Avenue, this morning.Mrs. Ward was the wife of William Ward, a banker and broker of this City, and daughter of the Rev. Stephen H. Tyng, D. D., by his first wife, whowas the daughter of Protestant Episcopal Bishop Griswold, of Massachusetts.

She was a sister of the Rev. Dudley Tyng, who was accidentally killed in Philadelphia a few years ago, and was a half-sister of the Rev. Stephen H.Tyng, Jr. This is the third death that has occurred in the family of Dr. Tyng the elder within two weeks, the first death being that of his sister,Mrs. Marquand, of Boston; the second of his son-in-law, the Rev. Mr. Homans, of Long Island, and the last of this daughter.

For seven years prior to her death Mrs. Ward had been confined to her bed by paralysis of the spine, and for the last four years she had been unableto change her position without assistance. Though suffering severe pain during the greater portion of thistime, she always maintained a cheerfuldisposition, and from her extensive reading and remarkable conversational powers, was able to afford constant entertainment to her own household, aswell as to the many friends and acquaintances who visited her. She kept herself well posted in current literature of all kinds, and scarcely a workof fiction by any important author was issued from the press that she did not read. On the morning before her death she began reading a new book,and only five minutes before shedied she replied in answer to a question from one of her attendants, that she felt comfortable. When not engaged inreading or conversation, she spent her time in corresponding with her friends or in writing articles for newspapers and magazines.

Mrs. Ward was the mother of two boys, one of whom is a practicing lawyer in Colorado and the other is engaged in business with his father in BroadStreet. She will be buried in the churchyard connected with St. Paul's Church in East Chester, which has beenthe burial place of her husband'sancestors for the last 200 years.
