SELL, Mrs. Josephine

Sell - In Addison township, January 22, 1878, of consumption, Mrs. Josephine, wife of John Sell, in the 31st year of her age. Having known the deceased from early childhood, it is with feelings of sadness that we record the death of one we esteemed so highly. The writer, having been her teacher for several terms of school, never had occasion to give her an unkind word, so excellent was her behavior. And later, when officially connected with a Sunday school of which she was a member, had ample opportunity to notice her punctual attendance and Christian deportment. For years she lived a pious, consistent member of the Lutheran church, and we have a right to hope from her Christian character and conversation during her last illness that she has gone to her rest in the better home. She leaves a deeply bereaved husband, a child, parents, brothers and sisters, and many relatives and friends in the community to mourn her. May God comfort and sustain them, and after "life's fitful fever is o'er" may they clasp hands on the other side of the river and be forever with God.

SEXTON, Martin

Letter from Cumberland, Md. [Correspondence of the Baltimore Sun.] CUMBERLAND, Md., Feb. 12, 1875
Fatal Accident - One Man Killed and two Others Seriously Hurt.
Yesterday forenoon a terrible accident occurred at the New Detmold mine of the Maryland Coal Company, which is located between two and three miles west of Lonaconing, and about thirty miles from this city. The entrance to this mine, as to others in the George's creek region, is on the side of the mountain at some distance from the railroad track, and the coal is carried from this entrance to the dump-house by means of cars over and inclined railway. The miners and many others work the mines generally ride between these two points upon the cars. At the time stated two of the men employed in the mine, Wm. Beaman and Martin Sexton, with three boys, one of whom was a son of Wm. Douglas, of Lonaconing, got upon two of the loaded cars at the mine entrance to ride to the lower end of the plane, but before the cars started two of the boys jumped off, having determined to walk down. Shortly after the cars had started the drum at the head of the plane, on which the wire rope holding the cars is wound or unwound, either broke or gave way, and to the horror of the three persons upon the cars they dashed down the track at a tremendous speed. When near the end of the plane, which is supported by high trestle-work, Mr. Sexton and the lad jumped for their lives, knowing that to remain on would in all probability result in their being killed. Mr. Sexton was pitched over the trestles and was very seriously hurt, being insensible when found. The lad was also badly injured, but did not fall of the trestle-work. As the cars dashed through the dump-house Mr. Beaman was precipitated through the chute, the iron edge of which cut his throat, causing instant death. His body was very much bruised. I learn by an officer of the train, which came in this P. M. on the Connellsville and Pittsburgh railroad that Sexton is still living, and may possibly recover; Young Douglas had a thigh broken and is badly bruised, and it is believed will recover.
