WAGELEY, Mrs. Susan Stewart

Again another noble woman has passed from time to eternity, this time the beloved wife of Mr T B Wagley[sic] of New Creek WV, at the age of 51 years and 28 days, of tuberculosis of the lungs. Mrs Wagley was born at Kitzmiller, now Blaine WV, March 1, 1860. Her father moved near Ridgeville, Hampshire County, now Mineral County, when she was two years of age. She leaves a husband and four children, namely Bessie, Mary, Harry W and Mrs Margaret Dicken and Elsie Leigh to mourn their loss. Her suffering, though great, was to the last borne with that calm and gentle spirit, which she always possessed. She was conscious of her condition and perfectly rational to the last moment. She died on March 29th, almost as calmly and peacefully as if going into a quiet slumber, alas, the sleep of death. But is was like the life she had always lived, serene and contented with all around her, the embodiment of all that is pure and good in a wife and mother, and a useful member of society with the greatest blessing of all, an exalted Christian character. What can I say of such a woman that will assuage the grief of the bereaved husband and children who have thus been left to mourn the loss of such a treasure. Nothing but time, the great healer, can temper and alleviate the anguish of your loss, and leave with you the cherished memory of your saintly mother and wife, and render our after lives. I hope more compatible with the living nature of the estimable subject of this feeble memorial. Although a great sufferer for years, she was always ready to lend a helping hand to the sick and distresses. Her adorning was not of the outward form, condemned in the Scriptures, but on the contrary the "adorning of a meek and quiet spirit which in the sigh of God is of great price." Death, though coming "like a thief in the night" found her lamp trimmed and burning. For a great many years, she has been preparing to meet her God; was a consistent member of the Methodist Episcopal Church South. The gentle footstep will be missed and the vacant chair in that desolate home can never be filled as of yore. She has passed beyond the dark mystical river of death, only to stand on the fair banks of the river of life, where "God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes, and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain for the former things are passed away." Rev XXI 4.

Servant of God, well done;
Rest from they loved employ;
The battle fought the victory won,
Enter thy Master's joy.
The voice at midnight came,
She started up to hear,
A mortal arrow pierced her frame,
She fell, but felt no fear.
The pain of death are past,
Labor and sorrow will cease;
And life's long warfare closed at last,
Her soul's forever to peace.
Soldier of Christ, well done,
Praise be thy new employ,
And while eternal ages run.
Rest in thy Savior's Joy.

WAGONER, Will

SCHELL, Jan 21 -   We were pained last Sun morning when we received a message over the wires announcing the death of our good and much esteemed friend, Will Wagoner, of Keyser. We have not set out to write an obituary or biography of this man, yet we wish to say that we have been acquainted and done business with Mr Wagoner for nearly 20 years and we always found him strictly upright and honorable in all his dealings. he was one of those genial characters who always had a pleasant word and a smile for every one he met and always made a person feel better by having met him. Truly the world is better by him having lived in it. We extend our sympathy to the bereaved family and will add that we can sympathize as many are not able to do.

WALLACE, Charles

COSGROVE, Martin

"Two Men Killed by a Collision of Helper Engine with a Freight-
MARTIN COSGROVE AND CHARLES WALLACE DEAD-
Fireman H. W. Knox Loses a Leg and Is In a Precarious Condition-
Accident Caused By a Mistake in Reading Orders-
Peculiar Performance of the Helper Engine After the Smash-

"It was my fault entirely" were the words that came from the white, compressed lips, quivering with pain, of brave and dying Engineer Martin Cosgrove as he spoke of the disastrous wreck which occurred on the Short Line yesterday morning about 4 o'clock a mile and a half east of Orchard station. The old adage "that in the midst of life we are in death," never had a truer exemplification, for Thursday night Engineer R. J. Cosgrove, who had charge of engine No. 617 was not feeling well and requested his cousin, Martin, also an engineer to take his run out of Huntington, It was on this run that Martin Cosgrove met his death, and in the terrible wreck, Charles Wallace, head brakeman, was also killed and H. W. Knox so severely injured as now to be hovering between life and death.

HOW ACCIDENT OCCURRED Engineer Cosgrove was in charge of engine No. 617 hauling an east-bound freight under Conductor Davis, and had orders to stop at the siding at Orchard station to let helper engine No. 301 pass returning from a run. Engineer Cosgrove forgot his orders and went on beyond the siding for a mile and a half running at full speed. He recalled his orders and started to reverse the lever as the collision occurred. The helper engine in charge of Engineer Eph McDowell and Fireman Frank Onan had no thought of danger, until they heard the rumbling of the approaching train, and both jumped just as the collision occurred, as McDowell grasped the lever to reverse, which was thrown back against him as he jumped. Neither McDowell nor Onan were injured beyond slight bruises. They state, and the statement is confirmed, that the headlight of the freight engine was not burning. It had gone out a few miles beyond Nampa.

NO TIME TO JUMP Engineer Cosgrove, his fireman, Knox and Head Brakeman, Wallace, who was riding in the freight engine, had no time to jump, and the engine was frightfully wrecked, the boiler being upon one side of the track and the tender upon the other, the engine being practically overturned. Horribly mangled beneath the engine, with both legs cut off was found the body of Wallace. Cosgrove and Knox were both caught beneath the wreckage, but managed to extricate themselves. Knox in his dreadful pain, managed to crawl 50 feet to the north side of the track, while his dismembered leg, which was torn off at the knee was found on the south side. Engineer Cosgrove was so caught in the wreck that the escaping steam literally roasted him.

THE WRECKAGE The freight engine, as stated, was almost completely demolished, while eight or 10 of the freight cars were piled in a heap, making one of the worst wrecks of the character that has occurred on the Short Line for a long time. The helper engine, besides damage to the cab, was hardly damaged at all, and did not leave the track, but with the fact that Engineer McDonald had started to reverse the lever, it jumped forward and ran wild for a distance of eight miles, before coming to a stand-still.

HELP SENT FORWARD Immediately after the accident Conductor Davis hastened with all speed to Orchard station and telegraphed the news to Nampa, and the Owl train, which leaves Boise at 3:25, upon its arrival at Nampa, was sent at once to the scene, carrying Drs. Murray and Kohler of Nampa, who had been at once aroused from their beds.

HIS BODY UNDER ENGINE Head Brakeman Wallace of the freight was still under the wreckage. It could be seen that both his legs had been cut off near his hips and that he was dead. It was impossible to remove his body until the wrecking crew arrived. Wallace's body had been roasted frightfully. His remains were lying at a point near the boiler, where the scalding steam had enveloped him as in a furnace. As soon as possible Cosgrove and Knox were placed on the train to be brought to Boise. The train arrived here with them at 8:55. Dr. Murray of Nampa came in with the injured men, who were taken to St. Alphonsus' hospital. Dr. McCalla, the Short Line surgeon at this place, was summoned and he at once called Dr. Collister to assist him. Later Dr. Springer and Dr. Bowere were also summoned. On the road to Boise Cosgrove and Knox told their stories between gasps Cosgrove admitted he had misread his orders, as stated in the foregoing, and that he had discovered his error too late. Knox said he crawled out of the wreckage into the sagebrush, where he remained some time before being found.

DIED AT HOSPITAL Shortly after arrival at the hospital Cosgrove died of his injuries. His death was due to the awful scalding he had received, he having been enveloped in the escaping steam from head to foot and great strips of skin and flesh had peeled off of him.

KNOX RESTING EASILY Fireman Knox has withstood the shock of his leg being torn off with remarkable grit and fortitude. The physicians in charge amputated the stump a few inches above the knee. At a late hour last night he was sleeping. He is very weak and has lost a great deal of blood.

SOMETHING OF THE MEN
Martin Cosgrove
was 26 years of age and was a native of Maryland, his widowed mother living at Western Port, that state. His father was an engineer, and he has a brother who is now an engineer on the Baltimore & Ohio. He came to Idaho in 1893 and had been employed on the Short Line ever since. He has no relatives in this state, excepting, as stated, his cousin, Engineer R. J. Cosgrove. He was an intimate friend, however, of D. J. Malone, Oregon Short Line mechanic, at Pocatello, who knew his family in the east and who arrived last evening to aid in the funeral arrangements. Mr. Cosgrove was a member of the B. of L. E. of Pocatello division No. 228, and the body will be shipped to his old home by his fellow members and will be accompanied by Engineers Jack Hiler, Frank Dryden and R. J. Cosgrove. Charles Wallace was about 38 years of age and has a wife and child and widower sister at Ogden. His remains were brought to this city last night and will be shipped to Ogden, by the order of the B. of R. T. of which he was a member.
Mr. Wallace was an old-time railroad man, having been employed on the Utah & Northern some 20 years ago. Fireman Knox is a new man at railroading, having been employed on the Short Line, his first experience, for a matter of three of four months only. His parents live at Keokuk, Iowa."
Note: He was the son of Martin Cosgrove and Catherine Connolly

WALSH, John Thomas

"Funeral services for John Thomas Walsh, 73, retired public school teacher, who died early Saturday morning at the Allegany Hospital, where he had been a patient since May 20, were held today at 9 a.m. in St. Patrick's Catholic church, with interment in St. Mary's cemetery, Lonaconing. Mr. Walsh, who taught for many years in the Allegany county schools and was a member of the Centre Street faculty when he retired, resided at the Walton Hotel here in recent years. When he was eighteen months old he lost his right arm at the shoulder during the battle at Bloomington bridge in 1864. He was asleep in his crib when a "pumpkin ball" from a large calibre rifle came through the roof of his home, which was in the line of fire as the Union and Confederate forces battled over the nearby fields. His sister, Mary, less than ten years old, crouched over the crib to protect the baby as bullets tore through the frame dwelling. The "pumpkin ball" struck her, inflicting fatal wounds and mutilated the baby's arm. Despite the loss of his arm, he completed his education and became a teacher in the county schools, serving for many years in the George's Creek region. He was active some years ago in Democratic party affairs in the county. Mr. Walsh is survived by three sons, Edward J., Washington, D.C., John G., Erie, Pa., and Francis Walsh, Piedmont, W. Va.; three daughters, Mrs. Lum Savage and Adele Walsh, Piedmont, and Mrs. J. A. Dexter, Baltimore; two brothers, Edward Walsh, Clarksburg, W.

"Piedmont and War Times-There, died in Cumberland at the Western Maryland hospital, last Saturday evening, July 16, a lady, Mrs. Mary Reynolds Walsh, resident of Lonaconing, whose residence for a while in Piedmont's vicinity was a very painful one, and whose memory of the surroundings are vivid long years after, even until her death. The family resided here during the years of the Civil War, and if we are not mistaken, the home was on "old" Hampshire Hill. When one of the minor raids of the Confederate was made on us, the "Johnnies" were chased out of town by a skirmishing party of "Yanks" who, having a cannon, made use of it out on Bloomington road from Westernport. A ball from this piece of artillery entered the house of the Walsh's over on Hampshire hill, killing a dear little girl, and taking off the arm of a little boy baby. That boy is now well known in Allegany county, Md., where the family have long resided, he from early manhood engaged in the profession of teaching, at present, and for some years back, being principal of the large public school at Midland."

MORGANTOWN - After an all day search, the bodies of John Ward, 50 years old, and his son George, aged 12, were taken from the Monongahela river near Catawba, W. Va., last midnight. The authorities scent murder, as the bodies bore evidence of rough handling and they were bruised and the clothing torn, indicating a struggle. The pockets of both had been rifled. A negro is known to have followed Ward and his son from the B&O depot to a river bank, where the father and son climbed into a skiff across the river to their home. The officers are making a wide search for the negro. Ward, who was a section foreman on the Buckhannon and Northern Railroad and his son had been on a business trip to Fairmont. They returned to Catawba by train and started for home on the other side of the river. A friend accompanied them get into the skiff. A negro followed the three up the track. This was the last seen of the two alive. The finding of the elder man's hat and the half filled boat told the story of the tragedy.

Mrs Watson was 54 years old, and has lived in Mannington for about 10 years, during which time she had won the esteem of all her neighbors, who will miss her kind neighborly ministrations. Her immediate relatives who survive are her husband, James B Watson, two sons, James Jr and Lawrence; her mother, Mrs Barbara E Floyd. Her surviving brothers are Ezra, Zack and Lindsey Floyd of Pawpaw District and Jesse Floyd of Keyser WVa. Her sisters are Mrs Ellen Floyd, Barcinnia Floyd, Rose Anna Rogers, Sarah Mercer and Inora Robinson all of this community; and scores of other relatives in this community and else where. Mrs Watson was a devoted wife and mother, who willingly and cheerfully gave her entire time and service to her home duties. She scarcely ever was seen outside of the precincts of her home and it is there she will be most sadly missed. She became a member of the Dents Run Baptist Church several years ago, and remained in that connection till her death.
