DUVALL, Col. Daniel
 
On Monday, the 2nd inst., at his residence, Spring Dale, near the Point of Rocks, Col. Daniel Duvall, aged 58 years, 3 months and 2 days.  In him the community has lost a most industrious, intelligent, worthy, upright citizen - to many individuals, an excellent adviser and friend - the Episcopal Church an efficient and liberal supporter - his children, an affectionate, devoted and only remaining parent - and his servants a kind and benevolent master.  The large concourse at his funeral, indicated, that an estemed and important member of society, was no more.  The unrestrained tears of his servants at the grave showed him to have been one who governed more by kindness than authority - his loss in the neighborhood will not soon be forgotten - and in his household it is almost irreparable.  May the God of the fatherless be the comforter, guide and protector of his children, now doubly orphans so that after this painful life shall have ended, they may be an unbroken family in Heaven. - Frederick Examiner

DYSE, Mr. [also Daily}


Two men killed, two so badly injured that they are not expected to recover, and seven others severely hurt, is the total result of a bad freight wreck which occurred Wednesday afternoon at 3 o'clock two miles east of Pearre, on the Western Maryland Railroad.
The dead: Fireman Dyse, of Hagerstown, whose body was recovered from the wreck.  Brakeman Daily, of Hagerstown, body still under wreckage.  Of the injured who are so badly scalded that they are hardly expected to live are Engineer J. C. Kneisley and Fireman J. P. Hess.  Two engines, nineteen loaded cars and nine empty cars are piled up down a deep gully, the wreck being one of the worst freight mixups ever experienced by the road. Failure of Operator Haag, at Pearre, to deliver a train order is said to have been the cause. It was a head on collision in what is known as Cohill Siding, about 42 miles east of Cumberland. All the injured are members of the train crews. It will take several days to clear up the wreckage.
