DEATH OFMRS. E. C. ROBERTSON.
We take from the Charlotte Ob
server of Thursday the following
notice of the death of Mrs. E. C.
Robertson, who was for many year.,
a resident of this town. The news of
her death has saddened many heacts,
as she was loved by many and the
sympatbies of the!community are with
the family. The remains were broulit
from Cbarlotte on the moon train and
were taken from the train to the
Episcopal cemetery, where the inter
ment was made in the family lot.
Rev. Benj. Allston conducted the
Mrs. Elizabeth Caroline Robertson
died suddenly yesterday afternoon at
5 o'clock, at the residence of her son,
Capt. Thomas Ross Robertson, on
West Trade street.
The news will be a painful surprise
to those of Mrs. Robertson's relatives
and friends who knew not that she
wp sick. She had not been well for
saeral week', but her family thought
her sickness attendant upon cod and
the feebleness of age. She was able
to be up and about the house and did
not take her bed until 3 o'clock yester
day afternoen. She died from heart
failure a' 5 o'clock.
Deceased was born in Fairfield
cooty, S. C., in 1825, and was there
fore 74 years of age. She was the
widow of Judge William R. Robert
son, of Winnsboro. They had three
children-all sons. One died when
very young, another was killed in the
Confederate army, and Capt. T. R.
Robertson, who survives.
After Capt. Robertson's marriage
Mrs. Robertson came to Charlotte to
live. She was a sweet, gentle spirit;
kind-hearted, strong in her convic
tions and principles; charitable an!
good. She was a devout member of
the Episcopal Church, and died as she
had lived, loyal to her church and in
faith looking to Him the great Head
of the church.
The remains will be taken to Winns
boro to-morrow morning for burial,
the interment taking place soon after
the arrival of the train.
Capt. Robertson, who is with his
regiment in Cuba, was cabled yester
day. He will not, of course, return.
Mrs. Robertson has been sicki for
several days, and will not be -able to
attend the funcral. Mr. W. R. Robert
son and Misses Bessie and Julia
Robertson, grand children of de
eased, will accompany the remains to

Catarrh Cannot be Cured
with LOCAL APPLICATIONS, as
they cannot reach the seat of the dis
ease. Catarrh is a blood or constitu
iional disease, and in order to cure it
you must take internal remedies.
Ii1al Cata.rh Cure is taken internally,
and acts directly on the blood and
mucous surfaces. Hall's Catarrh Cure
is not a quack medicine. It was prp
cribed by one of the best physic-ans 1
in this country for years, and is a
regular prescription. It is composed I
of th:: best tonics known, combined
wit!i the best blood puifiers, acting
direcly on the mucuons surfaces. The
perfect combiartion of the two inore
dlents is what produces such wonaer- i
