PARIS, William R.

Tues of this week word reached here of the death of Mr William R Paris, one of Mineral County's best and most honored citizens. Mr Paris was born near New Creek, Sept 20, 1837, and lived in that section of the county during his entire life. He was one of the most industrious and energetic men of our county. His farm was well nigh a model. He was a man of remarkable health and vitality until about five years ago, when his health gave way as the result of overwork. The world owes a great deal to such men - men who develop our resources and bring things to pass- men who make the desert to blossom as the rose. Mr Paris was one of the class of our citizens that make our country great. He was a man who laid great emphasis upon duty and honor. On last Sun, he was taken very ill and sank rapidly until death ended his suffering at 10 pm Mon, July 10, 1911, having attained the age of 73 years, 9 months and 20 days. Mr Paris was a member of the M E Church. He was a Union Soldier during the Civil War, being a private in Company C, Third Regiment, Md Volunteer Infantry. Mr Paris was twice married. His first wife was Miss Eliza Arnold of New Creek and the second, Miss Annie C Michael, of near Greenland Gap. He is survived by a wife and six children. The children are: Mrs George Eagle, near Keyser and Misses Louise, Alma Doris and May and Master Hunter Paris, all at home. Seven children preceded him to the spirit world. The funeral services were held at his home on New Creek, four miles above Keyser. Thurs afternoon, conducted by Rev J A Haugh, of Hillsboro, Va. The body was buried at Queens Point Cemetery. The pall bearers were selected from New Creek Post G, A R of which Mr Paris was a member; they were J W Virts, W T Connell, Walter Lowery, F L Kimmell, D P Osborn, G M Miers.

PAVELICK, Nick & Son

DUBOIS PA July 17 - The bodies of 21 victims of the mine explosion were taken form the workings at Sykesville today. The bodies were not burned or otherwise mutilated and it was evident that they died from after damp. G A Burrell, chemist of the bureau of mines car form Pittsburg, took a quantity of blood form the body of each victim and will examine it to determine the number killed by the explosion and the number by damp. It is believed the explosion was caused when some miner struck a pocket of gas and it exploded form the naked lamp.
The greatest mine disaster in this section of the country occurred last night at 9:30 o'clock in a shaft of the Cascade Coal and Coke Company at Sykesville, 9 miles south of Dubois, the lives of 21 miners being snuffed out almost instantly as the result of an explosion. Three sets of brothers and a father and son are included in the list of the dead. George and John Hook, brothers, were found clasped in each other's arms, as were also Nick Pavelick and his young son, aged 15 years. Nick Pavelick and his son were hurrying along together and, finding that death was inevitable, they embraced each other in a farewell and died while clasped together. The first intimation that the people on the surface had that an explosion had occurred was when the safety door on the fan blew open and the machinery began to run wild. It was immediately surmised that something was radically wrong in the shaft, but the extent of the disaster was not known until 11 o'clock last night, when the rescuers entered the mine.

PAXTON, James

Taken to the County Hospital from the Western Md. Hospital a few days ago, suffering with mental break-down, James Paxton, 56 years old, a well known miner from Barton, died at that institution this morning. Paxton has been a sufferer from a dropsical affection for sometime, which undermined his health. His body will probably be taken to Barton for burial.
