A dog-in-the-manger policy never yet helped a town. There is some of that policy used in Henderson as well as else where, and it should be dropped. There is absolutely no sense in pursuing such a course. Energy will do anything that can be done in this world, and no talents, no circumstances, no opportunities will make a man without it.

Tjook at Your Liabel. We have adopted the use of a mail in" machine in our office and hereafter each address will be printed instead of written. By this we will be enabled to mail our large lists more readily and rapidlv. and the names being plainly printed will be an advantage to the postmasters also, niakiug mistakes less liable. Aud then again the printed address and dales serve the purpose of a receipt for the subscriber, informing him each mail to what time his sub scription is paid up. If he does not pay at time of ordering the paper sent it is dated from the time the sub scription commences. For instance : John Smith subscribes July 1st, 1889, but does not pay at the time, his ad dress would appear thus : John Smith 1 July 89. If paid in advance for one year it would be so printed on the label, making it read 1 July 90. By this means our friends can keep up with the date of their subscription and also when it expires without being notified by us.

Grinding Again. Mr. James Amos tells us that he has rebuilt his mill house and repaired the dam and is now grinding again. It will be remembered that during the heavy freshets of last Summer when so many mill dams in the county broke he suffered an extra loss in having his mill house washed away also. But such, an indomitable spirit as friend Amos' was not to be cast down and he gates, ministers and laymen, are pres ent and many more are expected. There are some brainy and influential men in the Convention and in all it is a distinguished and dignified body. Henderson feels honored at having been selected as the place of meeting this year. On behalf of our citizens the Gold Leaf extends a cordial and hearty welcome to our visitors, indi viduals and collectively, and wishes for them a pleasant and profitable ses sion. - Meat, meal, lard, sugar, coffee, flour, syrup, soda, starch, black pepper, ginger, sniee. cheese, cakes, crackers, candies. cheaper than anybody.

The Murphy Bulletin speaks of a prac tice that we suppose is in vogue in every town, when it says : It does look rather queer to see busi ness men in a progressive town writing out legal notices and tacking them about on other people's property, rather than use the newspapers of their town to give publicity to these notices.

The Gold Leaf has already adverted to the fact that it would be a good idea to have all the streets in town designated by having the names of each plainly lettered on a small board and posted up at the crossings. The improvement would be considerable while the cost won Id be but little. Will not the Com missioners and Mayor of the town have this thing done? It would be a conven ience the citizens would appreciate. Afrs Irene Hicks Harrington, daughter r.t hr J. W.

There is one thing, how ever, in which we can and should imitate successful business men if we too would succeed, and that is in advertising; for successful business men almost invaria bly are large advertisers.

It is said to be a srood show, with perhaps lewer objec tionable features than the average of its kind. This is the same show and same company that showed in Atlanta, nnrl the fJnnsttitution. Olie of the most conservative of newspapers, could not say enough in its praise. Unlike the so-called big shows that are traveling the country, the Andress only charges 25 and 50 cents admission, thus bring ing it within reach of all. enterprising failed to cet what might have been a valuable and important industry to the town.

Owen Davis is a royal certainty always and can be counted on to do his best for the interest of those who sell their tobacco with him. An Insulting Busiess(?) Offer. We received a proposition recently to do some advertising for the Swift Specific Co., -of Atlanta, Ga. They wanted 200 inches of -solid reading mat ter published for which they otter the munificent sum of 8 jcents an inch, or $16.00 for the whole, payable quarterly and copy of paper to be sent regularly to their address. Such gall ! $1.82 a colum for solid reading matter, to be set up new every week. Such an in sult to a decent journal ! We do not need "something to fill up with" that bad. aud so wrote the house. We would not advertise for our home pat rons at such rates, for the simple rea son that we could not atiord to do so and live at the business nor will we do so for others. Since declining the nftpr thev have amended it and now offer us 10 cents an inch, or $20.00 for the whole. Think of it : $2.00 a col umn for solid reading matter, changea ble weekly. And yet we see the ad vertisements of this very concern in some of our exchanges. Is it possible there is a newspaper in North Carolina that took this business at the figures offered us? We hope not. Communicated. SrjMMERFIELD, N. C. Nov. 5 1889. Editor Gold Leaf: Having enjoyed the hospitality of your parents and of your grandmother, I naturally feel an in terest in any legitimate undertaking you may enter into. Destiny has pointed you to the publication of the GolpLeaf. This is a lawful, and, wen conducted, se vere enterprise a hard tax upon the mental forces. Courage is also necessary to stand for the right on all great moral questions. But I forbear pursuing this line of thought. I heard the editor of the Germanton Times say that you were wide-awake to what you conceived to be the best inter ests of Henderson. The writer was bred and born very near the spot where Hen derson now stands. He hunted squirrels and other game on both sides of Main street (then a public road) of your thriv ing town. It was truly remarkable to wee how your town had spread, East, West, North and South. Men of push and pluck have gathered in there. Should such occasions continue awnne longer, and should you make that a railroad centre as vou are fast doing, what will your industries and population be! But here I pause again. Q The solemn occasion tnat canea me there, the funeral services over the re mains of the late Dr. A. C. Harris, depos ited in the ground close to the remains of attorney George Badger Harris, are vivid to my mind, both of whom passed away in hope of immortality and future life. Your last paper tells how the initial services conducted by Evangelist Pear son had impressed the public mind and heart of your people. So let it be. Why should there not be five hundred conver sions ere those meetings close? Let no man vainly suppose that religion will re tard the business and prosperity of any ptople. More anon. C. F. II.
