LACONICS PICKED UP HERE AND THERE BY OUR EAGLE-EYED REPORTERS. Vnnce court October 14th. Do all the good you can while you live, for you will be a long time dead. The time haa come for the straw hat and linen breeches to go into retirement. Slowly but surely Henderson is assum ing the proportions of an important manufacturing town. Of course you will go to the Warrenton fair, and you should have somethiug thereon exhibition also. Sales of tobacco have not been very large this week on account of the unfav orable condition of the weather. Remember Cooper & Mitchell will oc cupy Parker & Clous' old stand, adjoin ing the Harwell building, hereafter. Mr. Jas. H. Lassiter left last week for Alabama to look after things down there, where he has large farming interests. Tax gathering ! Tax gathering ! ! Look out for Sheriff Smith, lie has business with you if it has not already been at tended to. We hope to see Vance county well rep resented in exhibits as well as in the large attendance of Iter citizens at the Warren ton fair next month. The long evenings are coining on apace. Subscribe for a good paper and spend your time with your family. How will the Gold Leak fill the bill ? With agricultural fairs, to be held all around us, the farmers of Vance county can have no excuse for non-attendance upon at least one agricultural fair. The Gold Leaf is the friend of the farmer and the laboring man, and the advocate of their interests. If they don't know it, "that's a loss for them." Henderson keeps steadily onward in the line of improvements. New enter prises are constantly being inaugurated and new buildings are constantly going up. The Oxford Day says Dr. Dixon is mak ing a very successful canvass for dona tions to the proposed cotton factory to Is? run in connection with the Oxford Orphan Asylum. The Alliance smoking tobacco factory at Dabney is moving right along, and is proving to be a piling enterpriso we are glad to learn. Samples of their product have already been placed on the market. If you want to get the highest market price for your tobacco, cotton and other produce, bring it to Henderson. If you want to buy goods for less money than they can be obtained elsewhere, come to Henderson. If anything wns lacking to complete the impression that summer has fled, the . A 1. 11.1 11 want, is aounuanuy suppneu dv xne suu den change in the weather the latter part of the past week. There has been some frost but not enough to do any damage. Steam was turned on at Walker & Rowland's new plug tobacco factory yes terday for the first time. Would that we might see the smoke curling up from dozens of smoke stacks connected with similar establishements all over our town. Mr. Ie Tilghman has accepted a posi tion with the wholesale house of Parker & Closs. A good business man and a fine salesman, clever, obliging and popu lar with all who know him, they are for tunate in securing the services of this young gentleman. Secretary Foote writes us that there is every indication that the Warrenton fair i m i . win iar surpass wnat it was last vear and we all know how creditable that was The fair will be held October 9th, 10th and 11th. Henderson and Vance county will be well represented TheFayetteville Centennial Celebration ayettevnie centennial 't,0.n be a grand day and the historic will oia town will De lull of patriotic sons from all over the South. We hope to have Henderson well represented. The Vance Guards will probably be among the military bodies represented. Col. W. H. Hood, of Southampton county, Va., arrived Saturday and will make Henderson his home in future, as intimated in the Gold Leaf week before last. Col. Hood is a civil engineer and surveyor and offers his services to the people of the town and county. Messrs. Young & Daingerfield have filled their silos at their dairy farm rear town. They used a horse power cutting machine to cut the green corn with. It was put up in fine condition and future results are awaited with interest by those who have not yet adopted this method of preparing and saving feed for stock. There are many solid chunks of wisdom and good horse sense in an article written by the talented and versatile editor of the Wilmington Messenger. The home paper, who can estimate its value? Where is the good citizen who excuses himself for not supporting it ? (Xinton Caucasian. It is conceded by those who have visited VV hitmore's bakery that he evidently un derstands his business. His work shows for itself. Call and see him at Dunton's old stand. Several new stores have been opened in Henderson lately. With , the coming of the fall season and a promise of increased trade, the more competitors there are for it as a general thing. The revival meeting at the M. E. church is increasing in interest nightly. Rev. W. B. North has preached some excellent ser mons since Monday night, and much good is expected to result from the meeting. i Messrs. J. II. Beal and J. T. Tisdale, two excellent tobacco fanners of Nash, were here last week with fine tobacco. They made sales that averaged them 37 to $45. Pretty good, and so both of them thought. The Oxford Day tells us that the Or phan Asylum contemplates occupying a spate in the State Fair building for an industrial display. A good idea. Show the people of North Carolina the good work this noble institution is doing. Last Friday's sales of tobacco were very heavy. All the houses got through, however, but it was by dint of hard work. It was as late as 5:30 before Harris, Gooch & Co., who had last sale, finished. And these pushy men had to push things to do it. The Washington correspondent of the Durham Globe in a recent communication to that paper says: It is understood that the Secretary of the Treasury will soon appoint Mr. It. P. Hughes, of Oxford, as general storekeeper and gauger. This will be agreeable news to the many per sonal friends of that gentleman. x Mr. J. W. Graves, of Danville, Va., will be manager at Walker & Rowland's plug tobacco factory. Mr. Graves is already here and has entered upon his duties. He is an experienced man at the business and having the very best facilities at his command will turn out nothing but first class work, lhe Gold Leaf welcomes him to Henderson. So successful was the Warren county fair last year that it was decided to make it not altogether local in its nature this fall, and Vance, Fraklin, Nash Halifax end Mecklenburg counties will all be rep resented by exhibits as well as attend ance next month. The authorities tell us the fair will be one of the best in the State beyond all question . Coojer & Mithell have moved their stock of goods to Parker & Closs' old stand, where they will be pleased to see their friends and patrons in future. They had to have more room in order to ac commodate their large and growing trade, and to got it they have gone into larger quarters. Remember the change and go to see them at their new stand. The "melancholy days have come" again. The summer has passed away and we are now in the autumn season. The leaves on the trees have a withering j tendency, and many are dropping to the ground. There is a peculiar aspect and feeling that always come with the fall, indicating decay and the passing away of all things lovely in Nature. It is now proposed as the only plan to break the sugar trust for consumers to stop using sugar for ninety days, and stick to it as the farmers stuck to their agreement not to use twine, and sugar will come down as the trust "goes up." Agreed. We'll take "our'n" straight for ninety days if the rest of you will do the same thing. Come, let's bust the sugar trust. We learn from Buffalo Springs that Mr. W. II. Gregory has almost entirely re covered from his long sickness, and now weighs nearly two hundred pounds. Oxford Day. This will be gratifying news to the many friends of that gentleman. Es teeming him very highly the Gold Leaf is pleased to learn of Air. Gregory's im proved physical condition. The Hicks Tobacco Company of Oxford have just purchased new machinery and will engage extensively in the manufac ture of tobacco. The Day says : 1 Some idea of the amount of machinery may be gained from the fact that it took seven cars to bring it here, and although three wagons have been busy every day for ten days hauling it to the factory, they have not yet completed the transfer. We are pleased to have Mr. Geo. W. Baker, editor and proprietor of the Jonesboro Leader, with us this week. He not only knows how to get up a good paper, but is one of the finest job prin ters in the State as well. This is Mr. Baker's first visit to Henderson, but if he is as favorably impressed with the place and people as those who have met him are with him, we are sure it will not be the last. omen grow old with a bettor grace than men, or, what is the same thing, so far as others are concerned, with lesser loss of grace than men. No woman ever grows old wiinngiy, oi course. pjtui, women do grow old, and often to advant age. Age makes them more discreet and if they desire the prettiest, best fit ting, most comfortable and lasting shoe in the market, they will go to Anglea s shoe store. An exchange says that every paper in the State should publish the fact that burnt corn is a sure cure for hog cholera, and adds: "It was first discovered by the burning of a pile of corn belonging to a distillery in Peoria, 111. It was thrown to the hogs and eaten by them. Before that time a number had been dying each day with cnoiera, out trie disease imme diately disappeared. It is so simple a remedy that it can easily be tried That is evidently a bright little mind (bog pardon, we mean the little lady has a bright mind) at the helm of the Or phans' Friend. In the last issue we find this really poetic reference to so common place a subject as a cow-boy : It is an ideal existence that of the cow-boy, just now. His charges browse contentedlv or lie idle under the wide- ! spreading trees, while he seated in a . - b ' ith lmlf ,ospd pvos sways lazily to and fro. There is a difference in people. We have noticed that a man may talk for nail an nour in iraying his little Doy a suit of clothes, or spend an hour in try ing to beat down prices on a stove, or furniture, or coal, but when he goes into a saloon he gives his order without an inquiry and pays without comment There is no debating of prices there. And this leads us to say that some men might be able to give their wives a pony phae ton with the money they spend for pony beer. . . Instead of feeling tired and worn out, in stead of aches aud pains, wouldn't you rather feel fresh ond strong? If you con tinue feeling miserable and good-for-nothing you have only yourself to blame, for Brown's Iron Bitters will surely cure you. It is a certain cure for dyspepsia, indiges tion, malaria, weakness, kidney, lung and heart affections. Try it if j'ou desire to be healthy, robust and strong, and experience its remarkable curative qualities. The Warrenton fair will be one of the best in the State. October Dth.lOth and llth.

One of the features of the Warrenton fair will be a grand tournament and ball on the 11th of October. We acknowl edge the recipt of a ticket of invitation to be present and participate in the festivi ties of the ball at night. The charge to the knights will be delivered by Tasker Polk, Esq., and the cornation address by Hon. Wharton J. Green. Music by the Portsmouth Naval Post Band. As will be seen by reference to card in another column, Miss Lizzie Cheatham will teach a class in art at her home. Special attention will be given to the in struction of the younger ones. A skilled artist herself, Miss Lizzie possesses the requisite faculties for imparting the knowledge to others. Th ose who have seen specimens of her work need not be told of her accomplishments in this respect. Her terms are reasonable. Rev. R. G. Pearson will certainly be here in November ten days from and in cluding the 6th. Some how the idea got out that this meeting would conflict with the Baptist Convention, to meet on the 13th, and it was reported that Mr. Pear son would not come. This is a mistake. The meetings will in no way come in con tact as the Pearson meeting will be over with before the Convention meets here. Many Nash county farmers have been here with tobacco during the past few days. Among them we noticed Messrs. Thos. V. Avent, J. H. Beal, J. T. Tisdale, and others, from the Hilliardston section, Sam D. Marshbourn, Red Oak, I. F. Hight, Nashville, and others whose names escape our memory just now. All good men, successful farmers, strong friends of the Henderson market and sub scribers to the Gold Leaf.

Right you are about the shipments of leaf ; and if you will substitute smok ing for plug, you wifi be entirely cor rect. But just wait awhile until we get our two new plug factories Walker & Rowland's and Col. Burgwyn's going and we will give you something to talk about sure enough in the way of plug shipments. October 9th,10th and 11th are the days on which the Warrenton fair, will be held. Gov. Fowle and Auditor Sanderlin will be there and speak the first day. Capt. S. B. Alexander will speak on the second day, and there will be a grand tournament on the third and last day. A large attendance is expected. Revival Meeting. Rev. Wm. B. Korth, of Chapel Hill, is here this week assisting Mr. Arnold in tne conduct oi a series oi revival meetings at the Methodist Episcopal church. Mr. North is a strong and forcible preacher and is quite success ful as a revivalist. He has just closed a very successful meeting at Chapel Hill, the result of which was the addi tion of upwards of 250 persons to the church. The meetings here are grow ing in interest and already a gracious outpouring of the spirit of God is mani fest. Three meetings a day are held, morning, afternoon and night.

The engine at Walker & Rowland's new plug tooacco lactory was tired up yesterday for the first time. Every thing worked smoothly and satisfacto rily, indicating that every piece of ma chinery was properly adjusted and in first-class working order. Mr. Wm. Longworth, of Richmond, Va., put up the steam fixtures, and the proprietors tell us he has made a complete job of his part of the work of making this one of the best fitted up establishments of the kind in the State. In a few daj's everything will be in readiness and active operations will be commenced. Already they have hands engaged doing some preparatory work. Warrenton fair October 9th,10th and llth.

Willie Fowler has been with us since the first of Februarj-, and has proven himself a worthy and deserving youiig man, apt and ready, of good habits and cheerful disposition. While he does not shirk his duties, if Willie loved his work half as well as he does somebody c?c,the chances are that he would not stop long enough to go to his meals.

He has opened in the store room in the rear of the Bank of Henderson, on Montgom ery street, and will carry a complete stock of staple and fancy groceries, dry goods, shoes, country produce, &c. Mr. Britt is well known to the trade of Henderson and is a popular salesman. That he will do a good business we have no doubt. There will be a large gathering of mem bers of the Farmers' Alliance in Warren reuton October 10th, the second day of the fair, to meet Capt. S. B. Alexander, late President of the order. The Big Convention. Henderson will have a fine opportu nity for showing herself in her best light when the Baptist State Conven tion meets here. At least five hundred persons are expected to be here and our Baptist friends are endeavoring to find homes for all the visitors during their stay in our midst. Half the num ber will be provided for by the mem bership of the Baptist congregation and places are wanting for the remain ing 250. Let our citizens throw their doors open and welcome" the visitors to their homes. And this we know will be done. There are no more hospita ble people in the world than those of Henderson, and all that is needed to find homes fur any sort of visiting body is to let the fact be known that homes are needed. There will be visitors here from every part of the State, and we have no fears as to the favorable opinions that may be formed about our place and people. Let us welcome them right royally. The celebrated Coon brand collars and cuffs and the famous and popular Peerless shirt, can always be found at Barnes, Stainback, & Go's. Positively the best goods on the market today. Examine for yourself, if "seeing is believing." sept 26. Married. Baptist church At the last night after the regular praver meeting ser vice was over, something not down on the usual programme took place. It was a marriage ceremony and but few even of the most intimate friends of the contracting parties were expecting it. Mr. Alex Barnes and Miss Cora Elam were made husband and wife, the pastor Rev. R. VanDeventer perform ing the marriage rites. The groom is a well known and popular young gen tleman who has for some time filled a position as salesman at S. & C. Wat kins', and the bride, who is the only child of Mr. and Mrs. James D. Elam, is a young lady of many virtues of mind and heart as well as personal at tractions and is much admired and es teemed by those w'ao know her best. It was the choice of the young couple to have a quiet buaness like marriage, without any unnecessary ado about the matter, and the Gold Leaf wishes them just as long and happy and pros perous a married life as if the whole town had been "let into the secret" and invited out to witness the cere mony. Real bargains are offered in a bigiob lot of towels and napkins by Meador Ac Knight, agents. The ladies are invited to call and see these goods.: In a Sad Condition. Last Thursday morning Mr. Josh Wright, an old and Avell known citizen, took his gun and started off squirrel hunting. He did not returu at night and his wife became alarmed and sent to look for him. Nothing could be seen or heard of him and the search was kept up during the next da v. Still no tidings of his whereabouts could be learned. Saturday afternoon he was found in the woods at a spot within 200 yards of which one of the search ing party had been the day before. He was paralyzed on one side from his head down and was in an utterly help less condition. Two days and nights he had been lying on the damp ground while the weather was disagreeably chilly to one who was able to walk about. He was taken home and Drs. Cheatham were summoned to his bed side. He was speechless and from the effects of the paralytic stroke, together with hunger and lying out on the ground exposed to the cold and damp his condition was a very sad and pitia ble one. At this writing he is improv ing somewhat, but the case is of that character that but little can be said of what the final result may be. For Rent.

Henderson as an Important Manufac turing Centre. Henderson has become famous the world over as the home of the finest to- inef?s in handling the raw leaf is simply immense. In point of color, texture and flavor the bright yellow tobacco in diginous to the territory from which this market draws its support is unsur passed for cigarettes and smoking pur poses, while as wrappers for the finer grades of plug it has always been pref erable to any other. Heretofore our principal business hastcan seen at tne Transient House where been in handling the leaf shipping it abroad to be converted into the more merchantable articles of chewing and smoking tobacco or cigarettes. But Henderson is now coming to the front as a manufacturing centre herself. With one large smoking factory in suc cessful operation, there will be another one in full blast before the first of Jan uary. The Henderson Tobacco Com pany Daingerfield & Jenkins, propri etors are pushing their business with a vim and their celebrated goods have an extensive sale throughout the South and South-west. Their goods are taking rank along side of the oldest es tablished brands on the market and sales are so ready that they run behind orders. The success of this firm clearly demonstrates what may be accomplish ed here at home by pluck aud energy. Very soon Col. Burgwyn will have a large smoking tobacco factory in oper ation also. He will work a large force of hands and will operate the latest and most improved machinery. And we expect others to follow. There is no better place anywhere to manufacture smoking tobacco or cigarettes, and in stead of two we ought to have half a dozen factories of this kind. The splendid new building of Messrs. Walker & Rowland is about finished and they will soon begin to manufac ture plug tobacco. Their factory will be fitted up with the very best machin ery and their manager will be a com petent and experienced man in the bus iness. It is safe to say these gentle men will put only a first-class article on the market, and for such thorough going business men nothing but success can be predicted. As soon as Col. Burgwyn's factorv building is completed he will engage in the manufacture of plug tobacco also. We are told that the most elaborate preparations will be made in the way of equipping it with the best machinery to be obtained and that the facilities will he such as will guarantee a large output. And in this connection we mention also the mammoth new establishment of J. P. Taylor & Co. This building is to be used for the double purpose of prize house and stemmery. This will give employment to a large number of hands and as a valuable and important enterprise in the community, comes next to a factory proper. These new enterprises all in opera tion together with the storage ware house which will soon be ready for bus iness, will give a decided impetus to our town and market. Verily, the outlook for Henderson was never more encouraging than now It is gratifying to contemplate our hril liant and promising future. The Gold Leaf loves to dwell upon such things and it takes peculiar pleasure in spread- ing the glad tidings abroad. Cooper & Mitchell are offering genuine bargains in towels. A large stock and the biggest and cheapest in town. The ladies are invited to call and inspect these ele gant goods. 1 have lust opendedanice lot of plain and figured satines, flannel sacking and suiting, ginghams and prints, pant goods. &c. 1 am offering some bargains in these goods and invite the ladies to call and see them.

The ' Flour" of Successful Drummers There are many older men and more ex perienced ones on the road, but when it comes down to counting up orders Mr. Charles J.Alston "gets there" with the best of 'em. He went out week before last and in 9 days his sales amounted to 1,106 barrels of flour. Pretty good we should say. There are two ways to account for tins : In the first place "Mr. Alston is a "hustler," and in the second place he has a good article to push. He represents the celebrated Yaeger Flouring Mill Co., of Carlinville, 111., which turn out the finest article of the kind in the country. This is an old established concern, founded in 185G, and located as the mills are in the best winter wheat section of the great wheat producing State of Illinois, aud re ceiving their supplies direct from the farm ers, enables them to furnish flour absolute ly uniform in quality, a failing with a great many mills as the trade knows.
