Clayton, 166 H Street, this morning, at the age of 63 years. The deceased had been in good health until a short time ago, when he was taken ill with pneumonia from the effects of which he passed into the Great Beyond.

R. S. Clayton, as the owner of Fred Grant, the big bay pacer of early California turf days, was one of the best known and highly respected men of the California turf world during his time. The writer well remembers the regard held for the man as a genuine sportsman and the horse, which was always associated with him, as one of the gamest animals alive. Many was the time when Mr. Clayton was importuned to let outsiders get the wrong tip in races, but as he was as square and honest in racing as he was in public and private life, he always went in to win.

He farmed for many years in the Priest Valley, San Benito County, and was well known throughout San Benito and Monterey Counties. The funeral services will be held at 2 o'clock tomorrow afternoon, at the residence of his son, J.R. Clayton, at 166 H Street, and the remains will be taken to Priest Valley for interment.

27 .......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, who was 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 unable to change her position without assistance. Though suffering severe pain during the greater portion of this time, she always maintained a cheerful disposition, and from her extensive reading and remarkable conversational powers, was able to afford constant entertainment to her own household, as well as to the many friends and acquaintances who visited her. She kept herself well posted in current literature of all kinds, and scarcely a work of 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 she died she replied in answer to a question from one of her attendants, that she felt comfortable. When not engaged in reading 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 Broad Street. She will be buried in the churchyard connected with St. Paul's Church in East Chester, which has been the burial place of her husband's ancestors for the last 200 years.

30 12-Year-Old Boy Crushed To Death
Daniel Leonard Roach, 12, of Redwood Valley, was crushed to death at 7:25 last night when he backed the Fordson tractor he was driving underneath anNWP loading ramp.

Seriously injured but reported in satisfactory condition at Ukiah General Hospital is Roger Lorrie, 12, also of Redwood Valley.

James L. York and Hal Bishop, both witnesses to the tragedy, told CHP and the sheriff's office that the boys had driven the tractor into the nearbyRedwood Valley Riding Club grounds and were "cutting doughnuts' with the vehicle. They were asked to leaveand headed up the embankment toward thenearby loading ramp.

When rescuers arrived on the scene they were forced to pull the tractor out from beneath the ramp. The Roach boy, who was driving, was crushed downinto the seat. The Lorri boy was on top of him.

Investigating officers theorized that the victim had inadvertently placed the tractor in the wrong gear.

The dead boy is survived by his mother, Mrs. Lois J. Sloan, and a step-father. The injured boy is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Harry Lorri.
