CLARK, Edward

B&O Fireman Edward Clark, running on west bound passenger train 55, was seriously injured Sunday afternoon at Rawlings Station, when in the act of observing the target signal, he was hit in the face by a loose car door on a train 96 going east. Clark was struck a fearful blow in the face, hurling him across the cab, the back of his head striking the reverse bar of engine No 2141, his body almost knocking Engineer Sinclair from his seat. The train was stopped, and the injured fireman, bleeding profusely, was lifted out and taken to the baggage car, in a semi-conscious condition. Attention was given him by the crew with such means at hand, and the train was hurried to Keyser and Mr. Clark removed to the Hoffman Hospital. Mr. Clark was about 26 years of age, married and lived at the corner of First St and Grand Ave, Cumberland. He was a native of Preston Co, W. Va., his family living near Terra Alta. He was well known among trainmen on the Third division by the soubriquet of "Happy." The injured man showed wonderful fortitude, and nerve and soon recovered consciousness, and conversed with his wife, who went to his bedside in the hospital Sunday night. The door after striking Clark a moment later, was torn off by the steel baggage coach of 55's train. Mr. Clark died of his injuries Tuesday morning and his body was taken to Cumberland that forenoon where he was buried Friday morning. His wife and sister were with him until the end came Tuesday morning.

CLARK, Mrs. Ellen M. Stover

One of the Oldest School Teachers in County, Dead- STRICKEN ON THE STREET - While Returning Home from Making a call, Mrs. Ellen M Clark Suddenly Sank to the Pavement and Died Few Moments Later
No death has occurred in this city in many years that so shocked the community as did the sudden passing away last night of Mrs. Ellen M Clark, one of the oldest and best beloved teachers in the city and county.  Mrs. Clark had been spending the day at the home of her nephew, Mr. L Clark Madore, on Bedford street.   While there she appeared in the best of spirits and seemed to be in her usual health.  She left the residence of her nephew just as the clock in the tower of the German Lutheran Church was 'striking' the hour of nine.  Her "good night" and "Happy New Year" parting salutation as she started down Bedford street were the last words she uttered on earth.  When she arrived in front of the residence of Mr. David Zieler, about a hundred yards from the Madore house, she fell to the pavement.  Passersby saw her fall and ran to her assistance and seeing she was ill they called Dr. C. H. Brace, who residence is just across the street.  Dr Brace responded at once and had Mrs. Clark carried to his office, where she expired in a few moments.  Dr. Brace stated that Mrs. Clark's death was caused by a stroke of apoplexy.  Mrs. Clark was seventy-four years old and was the widow of Oliver Clark, who died many years ago and was at the time of his death a prominent merchant of this city.  He was a brother of the late A Jackson Clark, for many years agent of the American Coal Company at Lonaconing.  Mrs. Clark was before her marriage a Miss Stover and was born in this city.  She was a cultivated woman and had spent the most of her life in school teaching and up until five years ago when she was put upon the retired list, taught the infant department of Union Street public school.  Before the days of public schools, Mrs. Clark had a private school.  A remarkable thing in the life of this noble is that she had taught three generation of the citizens of Cumberland.  Men and women who have passed the meridian of life were pupils of her private school.  The second generation of her pupils include those she taught in the early days of the public school.  These are now the men and women of the city between the ages of twenty and twenty-five are in the third generation of her pupils.  Mrs. Clark is survived by two sons and one sister, Mr. Walter B Clark, the well known hotel man of this city and Mrs.[sic] Charles M Clark of Braddock, PA.,  her sister, Mrs. Henriette Krouse (actually Rosina Stover Crouse) resides in Reading, PA.  She was a lifelong and devoted member of St Paul's English Lutheran Church and a member of the Eastern Star, Mc Kinley Chapter.  The remains of Mrs. Clark were removed by Undertaker Stein to the Inn Hotel, owned by Mr. Walter B Clark.  The deceased was very well known and just as well beloved as she was known.  Her life was spent in trying to do good and the hundreds of young people growing into manhood and womanhood will cherish her name as long as [they] live.  The funeral of Mrs. Clark will take place Thursday morning at 9:30 o'clock with services in St Paul's Lutheran church.  Interment will be made in Rose Hill Cemetery.
