A few days ago a man named Andrew McWhorter, living at Cunningsville, a little place in the town of Dansville, NY, died from the act of his own hand.  At 5 o’clock in the afternoon before, he took about a tablespoonful of Paris green, and in a short time his sufferings were terrible to behold.  It is said by some that the man had had considerable difficulty in his family and that this, together with the free use of whisky, had partially unsettled his mind.  It is probable that his intemperate habits were chiefly to blame for his death.  (Tuesday, April 25, 1876, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Callihan, was shot through the heart by a jealous lover, John McNamara, a porter at the same hotel.  They were engaged to be married, though no time had been set.  Sunday morning “Mack” proposed going to church with Ella.  She replied, “Yes, we are all going,” referring to some lady friends who were to accompany her.  On returning from church, “Mack” followed Ella to her room, where some conversation is known to have taken place.  He fired three shots, two of which took effect, one passing through her heart, causing almost instant death.  The only words she spoke were “O, Heavens!”  Mrs. Terry, hearing the firing, hurried to the scene, and met “Mack” leaving the room.  She took hold of him and asked what he had done; he appeared angry, aimed the revolver at her, but did not fire; she knocked it one side and passed into the room.  The murderer rushed through the house, sprang through a back window, and fled.  He stopped a few minutes at his mother’s house on Second street, entering the house in an excited manner and leaving suddenly.  His brother “Patsey” heard his mother exclaim:  “For God’s sake, stop, Jack!”  He followed Jack who ran over  the hill, overtook him, and asked him what was the matter.  Jack replied:  “I have shot my girl in the forehead and chin, and I want to shoot myself.”  After some persuasion “Patsey” obtained the revolver.  He went a ways with Jack and finally left him in the woods at a spot he cannot describe.  A number of officers and others started in pursuit; but “Mack” evaded their search, and has not yet been taken, although heard of in several different localities.  A reward of $600 has been offered for his arrest.  (Tuesday, April 25, 1876, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

William Drehmer
Six months ago, William Drehmer, of Dansville, in attempting to put a large cat in a bag, for the purpose of carrying it home, was bitten by the animal on one of his hands.  Soon after this the part began to inflame and swell.  For some time Mr. D. was prevented from attending to business, from the effects of the bite, and he has been unwell most of the time since.  On Thursday morning, April the 27th, he went to his business as usual, but in a short time became so ill that he could not reach his home without assistance.  During the day his symptoms did not change, and he remained about the same during the night following.  About 5 o’clock on Friday morning, feeling considerable pain, his wife assisted him from his bed to a chair.  She left him a few moments and when she returned found him in what she believed to be a fainting fit.  On the arrival of a near neighbor, who came at her call, it was ascertained that Mr. Drehmer was dead.  It is believed that the bite of the cat left a virus in his system that slowly but surely produced death.  There was, however, no evidence of hydrophobia connected with the patient’s disease.  It is difficult to tell precisely in what way the poison worked its fatal end.  Mr. Drehmer was a very respectable and worthy citizen.--Rochester Democrat.  (Tuesday, May 23, 1876, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Michael Connelly [SRGP 09045]
To the Editor of the Agitator:  Michael Connelly passed peacefully away to the spirit world, May 24, 1876, in the 79th years and 4 months of his age.  His birth place was in Dutchess county, NY.  At the age of 21 years he came west and settled in the town of Hector, Tompkins county, NY.--Some 16 years after he removed into Sullivan township, locating near Mainesburg when these hills and valleys were covered with their primeval forests, and has resided here about 41 years. He was the father of 10 children--five boys and five girls--some of whom have gone before, but most of them still remain on the shores of time.  The companion of his young and vigorous manhood and ripe old age still survives, cheerful and resigned tho’ bereft and infirm, to walk on alone only a few more short and feeble steps till she shall reach that home where “there is rest for the weary.” The cause of Mr. Connelly’s death was a cancer on the side of his face, which though comparatively painless was a great affliction, and gradually made its advances toward the citadel of life until its conquest was complete.  He never made a public profession of his faith in Christ, but he has left to his family and near friends satisfactory evidence that he trusted confidently for his salvation in the sufficiency of the atonement.  He feared not to die, but rather for some months past desired to be set free from the burdens of the “earthly house of this tabernacle,” and to be admitted to the “house not made with hands, eternal in the Heavens.”  He was held in much respect by his neighbors and acquaintances and in loving esteem by his near relatives.  We trust that death to him has been gain.  D.

Miss Anna Haag
A shocking accident, resulting in the death of one little girl and the wounding of another, occurred at Hammondsport, NY, Saturday afternoon, the 5th instant.  Five children were playing in an up-stairs room in the German Hotel, kept by Jacob Frey, when Jacob Schmulz, a little boy of seven or eight, brought a shot gun from an adjoining room to use as a plaything.  It was discharged while in his hands, the main part of the charge entering the back of Anna Haag, aged about 12, causing a terrible wound from which she died in about 1 ½ hours.  Five scattering shot entered the body of Lizzie Schmock, aged 10, inflicting severe but not dangerous wounds.  Medical aid was immediately summoned, and everything possible done for the sufferers.  The news of the calamity spread like wild-fire through the village, causing the greatest excitement.  Immediately after the accident telegrams were sent to the fathers of the children, who reside in New York, and 1 ½ hours later another was sent to the father of Anna Haag, announcing her death.  He in company with the fathers of the wounded girl and the little boy arrived Sunday morning, and returned the same evening with Anna’s remains.  Lizzie was too severely wounded to be moved, Lizzie and Jacob are cousins, and are related, we believe to Mr. Frey.  All three children had been brought to Hammondsport by their parents to spend the hot summer months.  Mr. Frey’s son had been hunting the day before the shooting, and upon returning attempted to draw the load, but breaking the ramrod, he removed the cap so that all danger should be obviated.  It seems, however, that enough of the fulminating powder remained on the tube to ignite the powder when the hammer snapped down.  (Tuesday, August 15, 1876, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

N. L. Reynolds.  A large number of people were present and participated in the services, before which the remains were taken to the old cemetery for interment.  B. C.
