EAGLE, D.W.

A terrible accident occurred last Tuesday morning, a few miles above Keyser, in which three men lost their lives and one is lying in a critical condition. The dead are D. W. Eagle, a well known business man, a farmer, a sawmill man and interested in many other enterprises around here; John Smith, aged 20 years; and John Gray. The injured man is Jos Boyce, who has a leg and arm broken and hurt about the back, and it is feared that he too, will die. Mr. Eagle's son was also with the men, but escaped injury. The men were starting an old saw mill that had not been run for some time. In some way the boiler exploded. Smith was killed outright, Mr. Eagle died just as they reached the hospital with him, and Gray died the next morning. Eagle was crushed about the head and chest. Two other men were standing near, but both escaped without injury. Olin, Mr. Eagle's oldest son, was standing within a few feet of his father. Alex Shears, the fireman, who escaped, says there was only forty pounds of steam in the boiler at the time. They were all standing together watching one man lace a belt at the time.
The men were all buried at the Duling church, Smith Wednesday, Gray Friday morning and Eagle yesterday afternoon. Mr. Eagle was a member of the New Creek Council National Union, who had charge of the funeral, many of them attending. Services were conducted at his late home by Rev. A. P. Neel. Mr. Eagle was a native of Pendleton County, and was 49 years, 8 months old. He married Miss Annie E. Burkhiser, who with two sons, Olin and James, survive. He leaves three brothers, George of New Creek and two in the west, and one sister, Mrs. Taylor Delay, of Petersburg.

EAGLE, D W

In memory of our departed friend, D. W. Eagle, who was so suddenly taken from his family on October 15. Words fail to express our sympathy for his devoted and heart broken wife and boys, who loved him so much. Our hearts ache for them. Never was so sad an occurrence in our neighborhood before. We feel the loss of a noble Christian man and are grieved to give him up. We can't understand why so useful a man should have been removed from our midst. He was always ready to help those in need. I can say the best man on Newcreek is gone. Mr. Eagle was born on Upper Tract, Pendleton County, and came to this county when quite a young man and by his honesty and industry has accumulated considerable property and won a warm place in the hearts of his fellowmen. He gave his heart to God when a boy and joined the M. E. Church, South, in Upper Tract and for about twenty-eight years has been consistent member of Rees Chapel, at New Creek; always faithful in discharging his duty. Mr. Eagle married Miss Annie Burkhiser nineteen years ago, and to this happy union was given two good boys, which, with their mother, survive and deeply mourn the loss of a kind husband and loving father, for such he was. His place can never be filled in the home or with his friends. To know Mr. Eagle was to love him. His death has cast a gloom over this community which will long remain. God said to him, "Thy work on earth is done, enter thou into the joys laid up above for thee, where there is no more pain or weeping. God will wipe away all tears from every eye." Funeral service was conducted at his late home at 2:30 by his pastor, Rev. A. A. P. Neel. May the god who kept him and brought him safely through, keep his devoted wife and sons and comfort them and bring at last to make an undivided home above around the Father's throne in Heaven.
  to his bereaved ones I'll say:
  A precious one from you is gone,
  A voice you loved is still,
  A place is vacant in your home,
  Which never can be filled."
  God bless and comfort you all is the prayer of a
  True Friend.

EDWARDS, Kate

Kate Edwards (colored) was found in a stupor lying on the floor of her home late Monday afternoon. She died soon after being found. It is thought that she had been lying on the floor since early morning as she was dressing only in her sleeping clothes. She lived alone in a house on the rear of the lot of Mrs. C. M. Maddocks who went to the house to investigate after not having seen anyone on the premises all day. A physician was called but he could do nothing to revive the woman. Friends took charge of the remains and the funeral was held at the colored church Wednesday afternoon. The deceased was one of the oldest citizens of Davis. A coincidence in her death was the death also of her lover, Holman Boatright, of Thomas, who died the same day and in the same manner.
