ANTHONY, Rev William

Rev. William Anthony, a Methodist Episcopal minister, who for the past two years has been pastor of the congregations at Doubs, Point of Rocks, Jefferson and Middletown, in Frederick county, was killed Sunday afternoon by being struck by the tender of a locomotive on the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, near Doubs.  Mr. Anthony had preached Sunday morning at Doubs, and in the afternoon set out to walk to Point of Rocks where he was to have preached Sunday night. Seeing a train approaching on the track on which he was walking he stepped over to the adjoining track, on which a locomotive was running backward to Washington Junction. He evidently was unaware of the locomotive's approach, and was not seen by the engineer, Elmer Cope, of Baltimore, or the fireman in time to avert the accident. The tender struck him in the back, and he was killed instantly, his skull being fractured.  By those who heard his sermon Sunday morning it was remarked as a strange coincidence that he had spoken of the uncertainty of life, and suggested the possibility that some of those who had met at the service might never meet again.  Mr. Anthony had been pastor of the Methodist church at Elk Garden and at Barton, Md., where he had many warm friends. He is survived by a widow and two children.

 APPLETON, General J. W. M.

The funeral of General J. W. M. Appleton, of Salt Sulphur Springs, W. Va., who was killed by a young jersey bull on his farm, was held Sunday from his home. General Appleton, despite his age of 82, took pride in his vigor, which enabled him to perform many of his farm duties. The animal had escaped from the stable lot into the public road and General Appleton attempted to head the bull off and drive it back when it rushed after him, striking him with great force in the abdomen and pitching him high over his head, afterward trampling upon him. E. Don Ballard and David Dare ran to his assistance and after driving the bull away with heavy pieces of timber, carried General Appleton to his porch, where he expired in about 20 minutes from internal injuries. General Appleton served through the Union Army in the Civil War as major in command of a Union regiment. He went to Monroe county, W. Va., about 32 years ago and with his associates bought the Salt Sulphur Springs, which he since managed. He was made Adjutant General on the staff of Governor George W. Atkinson and had been a prominent figure in military and political circles. He is survived by his wife, one son, Jack Appleton, one of the editors of the Cincinnati Times Star, and two daughters, Mrs. Barnes and Mrs. Smith, of Charleston.
