ROGERS, Child of Mr. & Mrs. Homer

RIDGEVILLE ITEMS - We are sorry to chronicle the death of the beautiful babe of Mr. and Mrs. Homer Rogers.
God has taken to his home,
Little Delcie sleeps, but not forever.
When we see a precious blossom
That we tended with such care,
Rudely taken from our bosom,
How our aching hearts despair,
It shall sleep, but not forever,
In the lone and silent grave,
They shall meet to part no never
In the home, the Lord hath gave.

ROGERS,  James

A GOOD CITIZEN DEPARTED
Last week our old friend, Jas Rogers, an estimable citizen of Cabin Run, paid his last visit to Keyser. We observed his feeble step and pallid face; but little thought so soon the sad duty of chronicicing (?sic) his death would be ours, and that it would be the last earthly greeting. Mr Rogers died on Sat after a brief illness, in the 54th year of his age. His community possessed few more worthy and substantial men.

"KILLED ON THE RAIL.
John Rogers of Lonaconing Instantly Killed at Detmold Trestling.
John Rogers, aged 25 years, was instantly killed on the Detmold trestling by being struck by the miners' train about 5 o'clock this morning.  Rogers, with a friend, John Carey, was sitting on the edge af the trestle when they were both struck by the train mentioned. Carey was knocked off and only badly bruised while his companion was instantly killed. A striking coincidence is revealed in the fact that Rogers' father was killed almost at the same spot several years ago."

ROMESBURG, Melvin E.

CONFLUENCE, Dec. 31 — A gunshot wound sustained during the deer-hunting season proved fatal Sunday to Melvin E. Romesburg, 29 years old, farmer of Upper Turkeyfoot township, who died at 8:30 o'clock in the morning in Frantz Hospital of complications developing from the wound. County Detective H. C. Jacobs said that Romesburg and a companion had returned from a hunting trip December 10 and were shooting marks with a shotgun when the accident occurred. Romesburg had fired one barrel of the double-barrel shotgun and handed it to Donald Siesky of Connellsville, R. D., his companion. Siesky, in attempting to open the breech of the gun, caused it to discharge and the full load struck Romesburg in the left leg. The victim was taken to the hospital where physicians three days later amputated the leg in an effort to save his life, but complications developed. Coroner F. B. Sass, of Berlin, who conducted an investigation, said that the shooting was accidental and that an inquest probably will not be necessary. Romesburg is survived by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Romesburg of Upper Turkeyfoot township; his wife, Mrs. Emma Brocht Romesburg; two sons, Eddie and Bobby, at home; one brother, Albert, of Kingwood, and one sister, Mrs. Charles Ream of Upper Turkeyfoot township. The funeral service was conducted this afternoon at the Kingwood Church of God in charge of Rev. L. G. Mulhollen, and Rev. J. I. Kalp. Interment was in the Kingwood I. O. O. F. Cemetery.

Mr. Wm. P. Rooney, aged 29 years son of Mr. and Mrs. Bernard Rooney living on Welsh Hlll was found dead in bed yesterday at noon. The young man was very popular and a general favorite among the young men of town and the announcement of his death came to them as a great shock as he had not been ill or under the care of any physician. He worked every day last week at his occupation as a miner, but on Monday did not go to work as he was suffering with a slight cold. He was up town Monday, evening and upon retiring on Monday night he left instructions with his family to call him for work the next morning at 5 o'clock. When his father called him he answered the call. Several minutes later his uncle, Win. Donahue, who roomed with him, asked him if he was going to work and he answered that he was and would be down in a few minutes. Mr. Donahue and the other men got ready and went on to the mines and as the he did not come down they concluded he had changed his mind and was going to remain at home. He was not again called until the noon hour, and when he failed to respond they went
to his room and to their surprise found the young man cold in death. A physician was at once called and he stated that death was due to heart failure and that the young man had been dead some time. The deceased is survived by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Bernard Rooney, and the following brothers and sisters: Miss Bessie, of New York city; Misses Annie, Nellie and Bernadette and John and Joseph Rooney. The deceased was a nephew of Mine Inspector J. H. Donahue. He was a member of the Young Men's Institute, of the Catholic church and the Mutual Aid of the Miners of the Consolidation Coal Co. The funeral arrangements have not been completed, but will likely take place on Friday morning.
