missed by letter, 4 excluded and one

The following resolutions were passed

Whereas, at a recent meeting of the

realize in severing the ties of pastor and
people, how strong they have grown
during his ministry among us;
Resolved 2d, That in this we lose a wise
pastor, a loving, helpful and tender coun?
selor; a preacher of rare excellence in the
presentation of God's word, who, by his
Godly walk and conversation, has endeared
himself to ail in the community where he
has labored;
Resolved 3d, That we commend iiim
and his estimable family to the people ,
with whoui he is to labor, praying the Lord
to guide and keep them.

Earthquake Shock.
On Monday about 1*2:20 p. m. nn earth?
quake shock was felt by persons at this
place. Mr. H. Bane Harman was sitting
at the dinner table when his attention was
attracted by the windows rattling. He
called the attention of members of his
family to it. Mr. Jno Brittaiii also reports
having felt the shock. Others may have
felt it.
The Roanoke World reports a heavy
shock in that city at the same hour. It
says "buildings rocked like a cradle for at
least 20 or 30 seconds, and the windows
rattled as though a hard wind was
Sparks' Show.
Which was advertised to exhibit here on
Monday arrived.on time. The weather
was so incelement that the canvass
was not erected and two entertainments
were given in the town hall, one at 2 in
the afternoon and the other at 8 at night.
The hall was filled on both occasions, and
every one who attended expressed them?
selves favorably, pronouncing it a nie:',
clean show.
Surprise Parties.
Our young people are indulging again
in surprise parties. On last Friday night
a number of them stormed the home of
Mr. D. H. Litz, and had a splendid time.
On Tue-day night a crowd visited the
home of Dr. J. T. Cooley and were
delightfully entertained bv the Misses
Mr. J. A. l^eslie has purchased the out?
fit and good will ol the Clinch Valley

We have had some very fine Christmas
weather for a few days.
Mr. W. G. Tabor has commenced aSum
mer school at this place.

May Starts in as a Winter
Snow anil Ice Threaten Destruction to
the Fruit.
The beautiful weather which prevailed
the la>t few days in April had led every
one to hope that we would have no more
snow and ice this season. The hope,
however, was destined to be blasted. On
Saturday afternoon a cold, drizzling,
rain set in, and continued until Sunday
morning. When people got out of bed
that morning they saw Rich Mountain
covered with snow, and serious apprehen?
sions were aroused. In the afternoon
snow began to fall very rapidly, but the
ground being wet and warm it melted as j
fast as it fell for several hours.
Just before nightfall came it began to
stay on the ground and accumulate on the
trees. On .Monday morning when we got
up we found the branches of trees bending
under loads of snow, and the fruit trees,
that were in beautiful bloom a few hours
before, shrouded in a white mantle. With
the dawn the trees began to unburden
themselves and the snow to dis?
appear from the lull sides. Nearly every?
body thought all the fruit would be killed,
but up to this writing the skies have
remained clouded and light showers have
Dccasionally fallen. The result has been
that a great deal of the fruit?apples, late
?berries and peaches seem to be alive.
It is to be hoped that we will have a fairly
jood fruit crop this year. Nothing con?
tributes more to the comfort and health
jf a community than plenty of fruit.

The Greek aruiy in Thcssaly, now mar?

There was a rumor in Athens that Kdhem

The Banner Lodge of Tazewell I. 0. 0.
F., numbering, I think, seventy-live,
clothed in appropriate regalia, turned out
from their hall about 11 o'clock on the
26th, forming a magnificent procession,
marching over town and out to the M. E.
church, where a Targe crowd had assem?
bled to witness the anniversary ceremo
niei. As they entered the church door
sweet music fell upon their ears from an
oigan, played by .Miss Newman, an accom?
plished music teacher of our to\vn, which
lasted until all were within and seated,
when the usual anniversary ceremonies
were gone through with. Music and song
were occasionally interspersed. Revs.
Painter ami Sparks and G. H. Mays were
listened, to in the delivery of orations on
Odd Fellowship and its objects with pro?
found interest. Next came the picnic, of
still greater interest to some of us, your
correspondent especially; as the time had
passed for the usual refreshments,moet of us
were feeling the necessity of something
strengthening. Alter leaving the church,
the crowd repaired to the college yard,
where a table had been prepared in the
form of a square, on the inside of which
were heaps of packing trunks, baskets,
bundles and boxes, brimful of good things
to eat, and a whole barrel of ice cold lem?
onade. Soon by the hands of the ladies
and others all these good things began to
be placed within the reach of all. How
fast they did disappear. Special attention
was paid to those present who were known
to be in abject circumstances. It was upon
the whole, enjoyment personified. The
day w ill long be remembered at Richlands.
The time was, Mr. Editor, when drunken?
ness was as common as air, loud profanity
as common r.s drunkenness in our town,
and upon public occasions our calaboose
would be full of people at night for viola?
tion of law and order, but upon this, the
anniversary of American Odd Fellowship,
not a loud oath was heard, not a single
drunken man was to be seen. The sky
was blue overhead, not a fret. ''It is aw?
ful hot," "It is very yold,"' "ft is dry,"
"It is wet," "This chicken is half cooked,"
"This cake is too dry," "That man is
dressed shabbily," nor any like fretful ex?
pressions were heard during the day as ut?

none went away hungry. No doubt the
