CACKLEY, Andrew M.

Andrew M. Cackley was born in Pocahontas County, W. Va., May 28, 1849, and died in Roanoke, Va., April 28, 1913.  When he was a lad, his father moved to Greenbrier county, W. Va., and there he grew to manhood. He was converted at an early age and so clear was his conversion that people who were present said that he would be a preacher. Not long after that happy event God called him into ministry. He was licensed to preach by the late Rev. W. G. Coe, then presiding elder of the Lewisburg District. He united with the Baltimore Conference in the year 1875. He was happily married to Miss Annie Moomau, of Petersburg, W. Va., who preceded him to the heavenly home in the year 1901. Dr. Cackley was one of the clearest expounders of the distinctive doctrines of Methodism the Conference has ever had.   He was a sufferer for many years with what he thought was stomach trouble, but not until after his return from the late conference that he was slowly being eaten up by a malignant cancer. The end came while surrounded by his brethren of the ministry whom he loved, and the members of his household.  Brief services was held at the parsonage in Roanoke and his remains taken to Falls Church, Va., where he desired to be buried by the sleeping dust of his wife and child.  At the home in Roanoke, the services were conducted by Rev. G. D. White, presiding elder, assisted by Revs. J. Howard Wells and S. T. Senter, in the presence of the other ministers of the town and a large company of sorrowing friends. At Falls Church, his friend and former presiding elder, Rev. W. H. Woolf, conducted the service, assisted by Revs. W. D. Keene, J. H. Dulaney, B. F. Ball, H. L. Hout, J. H. Schooly, D. H. Kern. - Baltimore Southern Methodist

CADDEN, James H.

A FATAL ACCIDENT.
James H Cadden of Barton Is Thrown From a Buggy and Killed
Barton, Md., July 9, [Special]—Mr James H. Cadden and John Patton started yesterday morning in a  buggy to drive to Keyser. About a mile below Piedmont there is a large rock on the side of the road on which the sun throws the shadow of some trees that were standing near. As the wind blew the shadow moved to and fro. At this shadow the horse shyed and jumped on the bank on the opposite side of the road, then with a sudden jerk jumped back again, throwing both gentlemen out of the buggy.  Mr Cadden fell on the back of his head and lay unconscious in the road. Mr. Patton was not hurt by the fall. Mr. Cadden was conveyed to the residence of Mrs. Dorsey and Mr. Patton started for Piedmont to secure medical aid.  Dr. Shuey was summoned and after examining the body, found that the skull was crushed and that the pulse was very weak. When Father Wider arrived, half an hour later, Mr. Cadden was breathing his last.  Mr. Cadden was born in Barton in 1867 and is therefore, 27 years old. He dug coal until a few years ago, when he embarked in the merchandising business, and was regarded in our community as an honest, industrious and upright young man.  He was very popular with all classes.  Nothing has occurred in our community for a long time that affected our people so much as this horrible death, Everybody was horrified when the news came that James H. Cadden had been killed, and here e and there on the streets two or three could be seen speaking in whispers of the sad accident.  Mr. Cadden leaves a wife, who is nearly frantic with grief and two infant daughters.  Mrs. Cadden has the sympathies of the entire community and kind friends are doing all in their power to console her.  When and where Mr. Cadden will he buried is not known at this time, but most probably in the Catholic cemetery of this place on Tuesday

CALER, George W.
 
George W. Caler, about 80, was burned to death Friday when fire swept his six-room home at Deal. Pa., southeast of Meyersdale, Pa. Meyersdale firemen were called but the building was a mass of flames when they arrived about 6:30 a. m. Firemen recovered the body at 11 a. m. in the basement of the building, directly under the kitchen. The firemen stated it appeared that Mr. Caler was trying to start a fire with kerosene and that the fumes exploded when he ignited firewood. Sam Hartman, a neighbor of Mr. Caler, discovered the fire about 6 o'clock. Mr. Hartman attempted to rescue the aged man by breaking a window but the smoke was too dense and the heat too intense for him to enter the building. Mr. Caler was a sawmiller and blacksmith and operated a small carriage repair shop in the village of Deal. He lived alone in the home. Loss was estimated at approximately $6,000 to the building and furnishings. The home was leveled. Dr. C. T. Saylor, Somerset County coroner, was called to investigate the death. The body was removed to the Price Funeral Home in Meyersdale.
