Departed this life, August 21st 1866, ELD.WILLIAM J. SAULMAN, in the 28th year of his age.  His disease was consumption, and though he lingered along for several years, he was never heard to murmur; he bore it with christian fortitude and resignation; always putting his trust in the Lord; being willing that the will of the Lord be done.  Brother Saulman obeyed the gospel when quite young, and ever since has adorned his profession by living the christian life.  For some years prior to his death, he served the church as elder.  The church at Union, Gibson county, Indiana, feel their loss as an officer; but he has gone, he has finished his course, he foughe the good fight of faith, and with the apostles, and all those that have washed their robes in the blood of the Lamb, he will receive a crown of righteousness.  He has gone to meet his children, three in number, who have preceded him to the grave.  While we drop a sympathetic tear with his christian wife, who in his death has sustained so great a loss, it is not as those who have no hope, for our loss is his gain.  May we all live in that way, that when we have to bid adieu to earth, that we will meet him in that heaven above, where parting is no more, where sickness and sorrow is not known, where all is peace and love.                                  ELIJAH J.
