Barnum, under divine guidance, as we

severing his connection with this church
tei take? charge of four churches in Spot
sylvania county, therefore,
Keuolved, That it is with deep regret
and sorrow that we hereby accept his
resignation a? pa?.tor.
Be-solved, That in accepting his resig?
nation we realize that he is impelled by
a call of duty, and that our loss will be
the gain of others.

churches he leaves us to serve, with a
prayer that God will own and abund?
antly bless their labors among them.
By order of the church.

DEAFNESS CANNOT BE CURED
by local applications, as they cannot
i reach the diseased portion of the ear.
j There is only one way to cure deafness,
i and that is by constitutional remedies.
| Deafness is caused by an inflamed con
i dition of the mucous lining of the Eus
I tachian Tube. When this tube is in?
flamed you have a rumbling sound or
imperfect hearing,and when it is entire?
ly closed, Deafness is the result, and
unless the inflammation car. be taken
out and this tube restored to its normal
condition, hearing will be destroyed
! forever; nine cases out of ten are caused
by Catarrh, which is nothing but an in?
flamed condition of the mucous surfaces.
We will give One Hundred Dollars
for any case of Deafness (caused by
catarrh) that cannot be cureel by Hall's
Catarrh Cure. Send for circulars,free.

Story of Wife's Murder.
Leadlas up to the shooting of his
wife, Beattle said;
"Wo passed thre-e ear-. The- last
thing I can rememlw before es
turned around was n row of cedar
trees which my wife said would make
good Christmas trees, and the Bate
n>'ar where we turned."
".;tate whst I en.' "About
three-quarters ot a mile eir a mile freim

were going to hit him, ftnd I Raid re?
had plenty of room and that I should
have I the?n put em the- lew gear and
reached over to take the brake. He
pointed the gun at me and said. "Stop
?.'Kit.' I dldr.'t want to Bggrs
vfttc him, so I nal?! nothing I !
tout led the 'lut' h he fired, and my
wife fell back of me"
"She fell between four hack and the
hack of the se-at?" "Yes. In the

and starteel toward the mm He raised
the gun to bit me I caught the gun a?!

heing overbalane cd, I fell had; There '

OS the gun. Tom Owen said my face
was bloody. I picked up the gun an I
the man ran up the road."
"Who was the first man you told?"
Tom Owen."
"Was your statement to Toi
the name as you made at the coroner m
Inquest?'' "Yes."
Called For Help. -
"Why didn't )ou follow the man?"
"W?d!, after getting the gun and see?
ing him running up the road, my next
thought w?vs for my wife BhS was ly?
ing on the left-hand side of the car; I
had to step on her dress to get In. I
felt her pulse, but I knew I couldn't
tell, being excited, whether she was
dead or living. I hollered 'Murder!'
and Help!' and blew the horn, hut
knowing there whs a doctor at Tom
Owens' I seated my wlfo on the left
-eat Her head dropped forward Hold
tng her with one hand I ran the car
with the other. A lltlte way down the
lights went out. I fixed my wife In the
seat and Jumpeel out to fix the lights
I realized then l bad no coat nn I IH
tho lamps and went on to Mr. Owens
house."
"Can you recall how near tho bel'
line It was that you stopped?" "No, I
remember, though, that the car Jump
ed nearly two feet when It did cross
the ?belt line tracks. There was one
had turn where I had to let go of mv
Wife onco to use both hands for the?
turn. Mr Owen and Dr. Mercer helped
me carry my wife Into the library, t
asked If I should send for an amhu
lance to take her to a hospital, but
Dr. Mercer said she was dead I re
tnsmher asking a second time If she
wewe dead."
"Do you know whero your coat was
found?" "Dr. Mercer found It on the
footboard of the machine."
Beattle declared that the night was
tun dark for htm to get a good de
?Tlptlon of the assassin of his wife,
but that he was a very tall man, forty
to slity years of age and evidently
had not shaved for several weeks. He
was not certain whether the man was
white or colored.
