race in the district “we went into it

“B. C.” Relieve*
Periodical Pain*
In Three Minute*
It is so unnecessary to suffer
rilonlh alter month from inorganic
pains, because “B. C.” will bring
soothing relief in three minutes
"B. C.” is prepared by a registered
pharmacist, compounded on a differ
ent principle from most relief-giving
agencies in that it contains several
ingredients, used by many physi
cians, so blended and proportioned as
to accomplish in a few minutes what
we believe no one drug formula can
do in so short a time. “B. C.” should
also be used for the relief of common
colds, headaches and neuralgia, mus
cular aches and pains, reducing fever
and for quiet.ng a distressed nervous
system without opiates, narcotics or
such habit forming drugs. Get “B. C.”

Goerch Jokes
Carl Goerch. ot Raleigh, publisher
of “the State,” spoke m humorous
vein. “Last week, ’ he said, “I vas
down in Rocky Mount interviewing
Dick Fountain’s cow, and tonight I
am here listening to a lot of bull. He
s,aid Henderson had a right to be
proud of its town, but in serious
thought said this great crowd was not
her emerely to celebrate a new street
and a new white way but to celebrate
a returning prosprity.
"Proud of You,” Governor Says
Mr. Zollicoffer introduced M. C.
Miles, chairman of the central com
mittee on the celebration, and \v . L.
Coibitt as parade chairman, and then
piesented judge Walter L. Small of
Elizabeth City, who has held court
here this wee!-:, and who presented his
fellow townsman, Governor Ehring
haus. He told ot some of the things
the governor has done in straighten
ing out State finances and offered Mr.
Ehringhaus as “the greatest governor
of the greatest state in the Union.”
“I came not so much to make a
speech as to extend my congiatula

Many Guests
It would be impossible to name all
the distinguished visitors who were
here. In addition to Governor Eh
ringhaus, Senator Bailey and Con
gressman Cooley, there were Gurney
P. Hood, State bank commissioner;
Will Woodward, of Rocky Mount,
member of the State Highway Com
mission for this district; Charles G.
Powell, secretary to the governor;
Captain Charles D. farmer, head of
the State Highway Patrol; and others.
J. R. Porter, executive vice-president
and George A. Holderness, chairman
of the board of the telephone com
pany and others were here from Tar
boro. Mr. Sutton, president of the
power company and others in his
organization was also here. There
was also W. L. Lumpkin, of Louis
burg, member of the General Assem
bly, and prominent candidate for
speaker of the 1935 House, and John
A. Park, publisher of The Raleigh
Times; C. A. Upchurch, Jr., of the
News and Observer. And so on down
the enumeration might continue.
In addition to the parade and the
night speaking program, there was
amusement of various kinds going on
at all times during the intervals. A
minstrel aggregation furnished part
of this. John Lowry’s family helped
out. And there were others. The fin
al event of the celebration was the
street dancing, whiph lasted until
around 2 a. m. today. The white peo
ple had theirs at the Breckenndge
street intersection. The colored peo
ple had the block between Montgom
ery and Church streets.
Local people left their cars at
home or parked them far out to give
visitors accommodations.
Drug stores and eating places did
a tremendous business during the day
and evening.
And let no one forget this: The bril
liant lighting on Garnett street was
not for last night alone. It is per
manent. Tl'hei 62 lights will burn
every evening until midnight, and aft
er that 24 will burn all night. Addi
tional lights are to be installed as
quickly as the equipment can be re
It was perhaps the biggest day
Henderson ever had. Business suffer
ed during the long months the street
waa torn up for the work to be done,
but everybody now believes it was
worth all the cost.

constipation, tired feeling and
headache. I use it when I feel my
system needs cleansing. After all
these years, I haven’t found any
thing better than Black-Draught.”
