SAD DEATH OF ME AKBUCKLE.
The community were shocked, last
Saturday morning, to learn ojt the sud
den death of Rev W. P. Arbuckle, pas
tor of the Methodist church, which oc
curred at the Plainville campmeeting,
which he had been attending during tbe
past week. He bad been quite active
during the meetings and just previous to
being stricken with the fatal disease,
Friday night, he bad led one of the
meetings. He came to this place in the
spring of 1S93 and had proved himself
an earnest worker and leader in the
church and in all that was a benefit to
tbe place he took a deep interest. He
bad been planning a temperance cam
paign for this fall and hoped that the
result would be no license. He was
very much beloved by his people and j
they are overwhelmed with grief. His
last service with them was on Sunday
evening, August 5, when he preached a
very earnest and inspiring sermon from j
the words "Behold . tbe Lamb of God
which taketh away the sins of the world."
On Monday, with his family, he left
for the campmeeting. The body was j
brought nere on Saturday afternoon and
the funeral took place from the church on
Monday afternoon at 3 o'clock, Presid
ing Elder North conducting the services.
The remains were taken, Tuesday, to
the paternal home in Pennyslvania for
interment. Be was 33 years of age and
bad just finished a post graduate course
at Yale college. The funeral of Rev A.
P. Arbuckle was held last Monday after
noon at the Methodist church. A large
concourse of people filled the edifice and
many were unable to get in. The casket
was brought from the parsonage, the
bearers being the official board of the
church preceded by the presiding elder,
