LUDWICK, James A.

The funeral services of James A. Ludwick at Hartmonsville last Sunday was largely attended by friends from this place. As has been noted in the papers he was kicked in the stomach by a stallion in a stable at Arch Biggs' near Cross, May 25. He suffered but little and was planning to be out again in a few days. The stomach and intestines no doubt were paralyzed by the powerful stroke. A physician was called but could do nothing. Death came suddenly the morning of the 26th. Rev J. W. Bedford preached the funeral sermon, assisted by Rev D B Arnold. The unfortunate young man was nearly 25 years old, and the son of Edward Ludwick. An unusually large crowd attended the funeral.

LUDWIG, Pauline

Oakville Pa, Dec 3, 1912.
Dear Editor, I take this method to inform our friends of the sudden departure of our little Pauline, a little over three years old. Membranous croup was the dreaded disease that claimed her. At 12:20 on Thanksgiving day, we gave her good-bye. she was conscious until within a few minutes of the end, and we believe she knew she was going away. Her intellectual and devotional faculties were wonderfully developed for her years. For several weeks before the end came, she was much given to prayer and reading her little Bible (in her childish way), and repeatedly inquired of her mother when she would die and go to heaven. We should have been warned and prepared but we were not. My own illness prevented me from her presence during her suffering and could not see her laid to rest. I am some better at this writing. To all who remembered us so kindly with letters of sympathy, we return our thanks.

LUMAN, Theodore

LUMAN
The Wellknown and Aged Clerk of the Court at Cumberland Is Dead.
[Special by Phone to The Mail.]
Cumberland, Monday, Dec. 31.--The last day of the old Century in Cumberland has been stained by a terrible tragedy. Mr. Theodore Luman, the wellknown and beteran clerk of the Court for Allegany County in Cumberland, is dead and that in a mysterious manner. He left Cumberland on Sunday afternoon from his comfortable home to take a stroll. He crossed the bridge over to the Virginia side of the Potomac just back of the new Court House and that was the last seen there. For 35 years he had been clerk of the Court and a familiar figure to nearly every man in the county. His son and friends began to get worried but failed to find him anywhere and thought he was visiting womewhere until midnight and then the alarm grew decided. Thursday at day break a force of men mumbering at least a thousand went out and began a search and he was found at last in a rugh place called Devil's Slide, down between Cumberland and Pattison's Creek, dead and with the face and body disfigured and torn and the pockets emptied out. Not far from that spot is where a rough gang is working on a new railroad and it was thought the murder was due to some of them. Officers were scouring the country for details and the body was on the way into Cumberland where a great excitement prevailed all the morning for Mr. Luma was liked and loved by hundred of people and was well known in the county. His unfortunated death is widely deplored. Details came in slowly. The new that he was a sort of geologist and beside was in the habit of climbing about the crags in and about the Devil's Slide, a precipitous place, soon created a feeling that his death might have been due to an accident. A farmer who came to town stated that he saw him near Pinto walking along the road not far from his mother's, Mrs. Luman's home. He walked out and was found, four and a half miles from his home. Before noon the suicide theory spread about and doubts were thrown on the murder idea. The jury of inquest went out at noon. The doctor states that the skull was crushed in and the condition and position of the body indicates that he had fallen or been thrown from the steep and lofty cliff at least 400 feet high slipping to within 20 feet of the Potomas river after the fall. His hat was still on but his clothing was badly torn, and his neck broken. His body lay there for htree hours and was taken in charge by the Coroner.

Accidental
Hon. B. F. M. Hurley and D. Frank Hull went to the funeral of Mr. Luman, found dead near Cumberland on Saturday. The general supposition is that his death was accidental. Extensive preparations were made for the funeral. Rev. Dr. James E. Moffatt officiated assisted by Rev. A. J. Gill, pastor of Centre street M. E. church, a borther-in-law of the deceased. The funeral was held in the Presbyterian church at 3:30 p.m. Judge A. Hunter Boyd presided at the meeting of the Bar Association which named a committee to draw resolutions. The Twentieth Century Club, of which Col. Luman was practically the founder, will hold a memorial service, at which Gen. Joseph Sprigg will deliver an eulogy. The Elks had a special delegation. Col. Luman was the sixth clerk of the Circuit Court of Allegany county, although the county was organized over 100 years ago. He succeeded Horace Resley. Washington county was organized in 1770 and has had only five clerks.
