The friends and relative of Mrs Ella Leidinger, wife of former patrolman, William Leidinger, will be grieved to learn of her sudden death at her home, 68 Union Street, later yesterday afternoon in her 61st year.  Mrs Leidinger had not been seriously ill and when her daughter went to her room to make inquiry as to her wants was shocked to find her dead.  Mrs Leidinger was a Miss Rooney and a native of Frostburg, and one of those noble creatures of whom it may be said it is well that she lived.  A good mother, a faithful wife, kind with a grievance for no one, to know her was but to love her.  She was a constant, faithful and life member of St Patrick's Church from which place the interment will take place at a time to be announced later.  Mrs. Leidinger is survived by the following brothers and sisters: Bernard Rooney, Frostburg; William Rooney and Mrs. Martha Tipping, Allegany and Mrs. Maxwell Hamilton, Mt. Savage and Mrs. George Kech, of this city, and the following children: Miss Mamie Flood, Frank W., Mrs. Harry Brandt, Mrs. George Wagner, Jos. W. George, Mrs. Charles Freeland and Mrs. Lee Daniels.

Tuesday night about nine o'clock James Leighter was found in the back yard at J. T. Cullen's hotel, Coaldale, by C. H. McIntyre. Leighter was lying with his head in a ditch, in a position, which, it is believed by McIntyre, would have killed him if he had remained there much longer. McIntyre pulled Leighter out of the gutter and, assisted by C. C. Forster, carried him to a carriage shed. About eleven o'clock Dr. Davis was summoned. He examined Leighter and found that he was dead. The doctor believed that Leighter had died an hour before he was called and thought that death was caused by a stroke, or hemorrhages. Coroner Stoner went to Coaldale Wednesday morning and held an inquest. Several witnesses were examined, but they threw little light on the circumstances connected with the death of Leighter. One man testified that the deceased was drunk Tuesday afternoon, another that he was sober. There was a hole in the head of the dead man and when viewed by the coroner he was lying in a cramped position with his head on the door-sill of the shed. The jury decided that death was caused by a fall and hemorrhages. Leighter was about fifty-two years old. His wife died several years ago.

On Saturday James Leighton, aged 118, died at the almshouse. The actual age of the man cannot be accurately ascertained, and beyond his own statement no proof exists. He has frequently averred that he was born in the year 1768, and had vivid recollections of incidents which occurred during the Revolutionary war. That he is over one hundred years old is pretty well substantiated by the statement of one of the inmates who is eighty years old and says that he remembered Leighton as a grown man when he (the inmate) was a boy.
