Mr. John Saulman died at his home in Quaker Meadows township on last Monday and was buried at the Alexander burying ground on Tuesday. Mr. Saulman was one of the oldest men in the county, having seen 90 odd summers. Ex-Sheriff Lackey tells us that there are vet about eight men in Quaker Meadows who have passed their eightieth and some of them their nine tieth year. Cold Weather. A cold wave has now been on us for nearly two weeks, the most protracted cold spell we have had in .several years. Monday night was the coldest weather of the season, the thermometer hovering down close to zero. It has been clear and dry, however, and hence not so disagreeable as if we had had snow, rain or sleet in the time of it. About all of the ice houses of the town have been filled and the ice has been the best har vested here in a number of years. A quantity of ice, some as thick as five inches, has been taken from the Catawba river at the McDowell bridge, where the river has been frozen over for several days, and on the ponds the ice has reached even a greater thickness. RESOLUTIONS OF RESPECT A. Leslie, dru:ii, jxuarantees every boub of Chamberlain's Cou:h Hemedy and will retuml the niouev to any one who is uot sutitied after using two-thirds of the contents. This is the be?t remedy iu the world for U grippe, coughs, colds, -roup and whooping cough and is pleasant and safe to take. It presents auy tendency of a cold to result in pneumonia. Passed by the Oak Hill Sunday School of the M. E. Church, South, Table Rock Circuit. Whereas, God, our heaven ly Pather, has, in his infinite wisdom, taken to himself our dear friend and brother, Win. Marcus Winters, and whereas, the Oak Hill Methodist Church and Sunday School have al ways recognized in him a saithful worker, a wise and safe counselor, one upon whom this church and Sunday school could depend at all times, with perfect assurance that his heart was with us in every good word and work, and by his encouraging pres ence, and with his means ever ready to respond to any call that would advance his Fath er's kingdom in this world. And now, that we have part ed with htm forever in this life, and that we will not hear his name called from the roll of this Sunday school any more after today, we find it eminently befitting that we record our appreciation of him, therefore Resolved, is, That in his death we as a Sunday school feel that we have lost a faith ful friend and co-worker, one on whom we could depend for counsel or encouragement, one who was always ready to do whatsoever his hand tound to do, one who was a sentinel upon the watch-tower of the church, ever ready to defend her rights and promote her interest. That the death of such a one as our beloved Capt. Winters, (and we now realize that he was truly our captain,) should cast a gloom over this Sunday school, this church and this community is natural. Resolved, 2nd, That while we tender to the bereaved family and relatives of our deceased brother our deepest sympathy, and would offer a word of cheer, we know that nothing but the tender voice of the heavenly Father can soothe and comfort their broken hearts, therefore we express the hope that even so ' great a loss to us all may be overruled for good by Him who maketh no mistakes, and doeth all things well. Resolved, jrd, That a copy of these resolutions be spread upon the record of this Sun day school, a copy be sent to the N. C. Christian Advocate, the Morganton Herald, and The Burke County News for publication, and that a copy be sent to the stricken family. J. A. Lackey, O. M. Avery, T. R. C. McGimsey, W. B. Avery, T. W.
