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. Then if the paper is
not wanted continued a one-cent postal
card or a word to us in person will be
all that is necessary to stop it.

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

vinhk rorpttintr the highest nrices for their
tobacco for them) the white plume of
Owen Davis can always oe seen in ure
thickest of the fight. The farmers know
his daring and intrepidity and rally around
him. This accounts for the cracking sales
which have recently been made at Davis
warehouse. He is true to his friends,
hie friends are. true to him. Load up
and drive for Davis' warehouse. Take no
risks. Times are hard and you can't af

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.
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.
