iell in Piedmont North Carolina.
It is remembered by the old in
habitants a3 the Big Snow 17 inches
deep on a level. It was court weeK
in Cabarrus county, it commencing
on Monday, Jan, 18h. It was then
that Dr. Chas. Harris, who had been

He was on his way home which was
at Cox's mill in No. 2. He got off
his horse. He could not make it
any further. He kept walking
around a big tree until the cold overs
In this storm the trains on the N.

Both the East bound and West
bound were snow locked, for fiye

time of it. Cuts 50 feet deep were
full of snow andj the train could not
push through. -
They were near a countryman's
house. He did aU he. could for the
comfort of the passengers, - On the
Monday after, the snow storm the
wind blew terribly. The cre7 set
about to provide a enow plow and to
work its way back fo Durham.
While at this whistles were heard.
Tt was three engines plowing their
way through the cuts coming to res
cue tbe train that, in the absence of
a telegraph line, no one knew where
it was. The engines would take a
running stait on fills and levels and
go dashing into cuts to push a vay
the snow. Sometimes it took re
peated efforts to get through a cut.
As far as is knrwn there are but
time men now liying who were on
either one of those trains. They are:

of Charlotte, and J W Mehaffey, of

From one who is prominent in
Populistic circle? and who knows,
the Standard learns what the amend
ments are to the charter of Concord.
First, to elect the fown commis
sioners by wards and not by the vote
Second, to pay the policemen a
salary and the fees to be turned over
to the Treasurer.
Third, to relieve those citizens,
who live in town, on the suberbs,
and whose lands are used exclusively
fur farming purples such as
Winecoff's, Mrs. Ileinst man's and

The report th.it the boundaries of
the wards are to be changed is a
mistake, at least, such is not in this
bill we are told.

Editor Standard It is said
that the prcsen t Legislature will be
asked to increase Concord's taxes
from 40 cents on the $100 to GO cents.
We, as citizens, will have to bear
then increase and I move that a
citizen's meeting be called to con

Shall our taxes be raised 50 per
cent? What do the people think of
this proposed change? Citizen.

In the scramble Mr. Williams was
thrown and trampled by the mule.
He received several biuises oh the
