Rev. Daniel Fancher.
     Rev. Daniel Fancher
was born in Greene Co., N.Y., July 17, 1888, aged 85 years.  His early life was spent in Worcester, Otsego Co., N. Y., where he was married to Miss Lucy Payne in 1826.  He was converted in early manhood and was licensed to preach by the quarterly conference of Worcester charge before the year 1834, which according to the Historical Register of Central N. Y. Conference was the date of admission into the Oneida Conference on trial.  As a supply under the presiding elder he served the New London charge.  From 1834 to 1836 he was on the Bainbridge circuit.  In 1837 he was admitted to the full membership of the Conference, serving Scipio circuit one year, Scott at Otselic two years and Truxton one.  In 1842 and 1843 he was at Cardiff, 1844 and 1845 at Pompey.  From 1846 to 1850 inclusive he was on the Onondaga reservation and Indian mission, from which he was sent to Fayettville, where he served one year.  The next year he was returned to the Indian mission; but at its close, by reason of poor health was granted a superannuated relation, which he held for six years.  In 1860 and 1861 he was effective and served the mission, at the close of which term he entirely failed in health, since which time he has been upon the list of superannuates.
     Brother Fancher gave to the Church twenty-five years of earnest effective service in the pastorate, - years when hard work and poor pay where the inevitable lot of the Methodist preacher.  He has warred a good warfare, left a clean record on Earth and his name is written in Heaven.  He died under the shadow of the church which he helped to build for the gathering of souls for the Master and for the worship of the Holy Trinity, and in the house where over one-fourth of his ministerial life had been spent, and among the people he had been instrumental in leading from paganism to Christ.  The funeral services were held at Cardiff where he was a pastor for two years, and where a large part of his superannuated life was spent.
     He died suddenly, but was not surprised.  He was ready and waiting.  The day before his departure he was unusually bright and comfortable; and spoke of his happiness in God.  The next morning early he fell asleep in Jesus.
     There was a large gathering of old friends and acquaintances at the funeral service.  Revs. F. W. Tooke, J. F. Andrews, H. B. Sith, T. R. Green and W. H. Annable took part in the service and bore him to his grave.  The service was in charge of Rev. W. H. Annable, presiding elder of Syracuse district, who presented a memoir of the deceased, and others delivered brief addresses.  His three sons and two daughters survive him.  Rev. Abram Fancher, of Central N. Y. Conference, at whose home he died, occupies the position and property where his father lived and labored so long and successfully.
     Brother Fancher was a typical Methodist preacher of a half century ago, and in manner, in faith, in zeal.  He knew God, had wonderful faith in the gospel as the power of God unto salvation unto every one tha believeth.  His work will remain when his name has been forgotten and the marble which marks his resting place has crumbled away.   .W. H. A.

OBITUARY
PROFESSOR GEORGE M. MOWBRAY.
     Professor George W. Mowbray
, the well known scientist and inventor, died at his residence on Union street, North Adams, Mass., Sunday in his seventy-seventh year.  He was closely identified with the construction of the Hoosac Tunnel and as the improver of nitro-glycerine, rendering its manufacture of commercial success, and the inventor of smokeless powder he is known throughout Europe and America.  Professor Mowbray was born in Lewes, England, and received his education as a chemist in England and France.  He came to this country in 1853 and spent five years in the gold districts of California.  He was employed as chemist in the oil regions of Pennsylvania for ten years and went to North Adams in 1868.  He then improved nitro-glycerine and superintended its use in the Hoosac Tunnel.  He worked on the tunnel until its completion and continued the manufacture of his improved explosives until 1880.  He subsequently patented an improvement for the insulation of electric wires and for the past six years has been the chemist of the Zylonite concern at Zelonite.  His last invention was smokeless powder, which he patented a few months ago.  He has since held the position of consulting chemist for the Maxim and Nordenfeld Arms Company of London.  He had been in failing health for several months and his death was hastened by a severe attack of the grip.  His life has been one of ceaseless activity, his experiments continuing to within a few weeks of his death.  He is survived by his wife, formerly Miss Mary Ann Fade, of England, a most estimable lady, and an adopted son, H. Siddons Mowbray, of New York.
