Mrs. Bloomfield Moore Died of Grief Over Mr. Keely's Fate.

London, Jan. 5 – Mrs. Bloomfield H. Moore, of Philadelphia, died at her London residence on Great Stanhope street today. She was 73 years of age and had been ill for several month from heart disease. She had lived for the past twelve years in the most fashionable quarter of London and is understood to have left a large fortune.

Although the doctors give heart disease as the cause of death, her friends agree that Mrs. Moore really died of a broken heart due to her grief over the death of Mr. Keely.

Henry Dam, a well-known scientific writer and her literary executor, says "I know that when Mr. Keely died she would not live long. Her whole life was centered In his work, to the exclusion of all other interests and hopes. She had the most profound faith that neither Mr. Keely nor her self could die until the invention had succeeded."

After receiving the cabled announcement of Mr. Keely's death she began to sink rapidly. Her ailment seemed more mental than physical.
