our esteemed, and much respected
brother, B. S. Cagle, have performed
the sad duty assigned them, and beg
to submit the following, .
Whereas, Our All Wise God,
the Grand Master of the Universe,
has in his inscrutable providence
deemed proper to call from labor to
an endless refreshment of joy and
happiness beyond the skies our much
loved brother, Benjamin S. Cagle,
who departed this life in great peace
at his residence at Beersheba Springs,
Grundy County, Tenn. On the 1st

loving family and friends, and
Whereas, We cannot but realize
a sadness, and aching void the world
can never fill, over the calling to a
higher plane of usefulness and hap
piness our inesteatnable brother,
yet we recognize a sterling fact that
our loss is his eternal gain, and that
it is mete and proper at all times to
bow in humble submission to the
will of Him who doeth all things
well. Therefore, bo it Resolved,
1. That in the death of Bro. Cagle,
the lodge has lost one of its brightest
jewels; he being as we are constrained
to believe from all outward appear
ance an upright gentleman and ma
sou. The community has lost one of
its most useful and enterprising citi
zens; the church one of its true de
votes, and pillars' of strength; the
bereaved and heartbroken family a
devoted and true husband and fa
ther. 2. That we tender the bereaved
ones our deepest sympathy and con
dolence in this the sad and trying
ordeal through which they are pass
ing; and can only commend them
with our prayers to Him who has
promised to b? a father to the father
less, and a husband to the widow.
3. That as a further token of sorrow
and sadness at the loss of our brother
we recommend that the lodge be ap
propriately draped in mourning and
that the members wear the usual
badge for 30 days.
4. Resolved further that this pre
amble and resolutions be entered on
the minutes of the lodge, and that
the secretary furnish the family of
the deceased with an attested copy
with seal attached, and also furnish
a copy each to the Tracy City News
and Southern Standard, with the re
quest that the same be published.

"ailure, but it turns out to. be better
than was expected. It is thought
there will be from one-half to three-
fourth of a crop. When I speak of

mean the apple crop. There are a
reat many peaches i some locali- '
ties; while the. small fruits are abun
dant. While thero is very little wheat
sown in this part of the country it is
very good where there is any. The
oat crop will be very light on account
of the drouth. Corn is in fine condi
tion. It is not growing as rapidly as
t would be with more rain, but is
being better cultivated. Millet sow
ing has been delayed considerably.
The yield of meadows will be very
light unless it rains son.
