Mr. Gooch fills the chair ot languages in the Pacific Methodist College at San Dk-2o. Many friends in and around Henderson will ioiu with us in congrat ulations and good wishes for a long and prosperous married life. The children of the Presbyterian Sunday-school had a very enjoyable party at the residence ot Kev. Aiex. Sprunt Tuesday evening. This was given in place of a Christinas tree or festival during the holidays, and the little folks had just as pleasant a time as if old Santa Claus had been right in their midst with all the majesty and mystery with which lie is" associated in the youthful mind. We were pleased to have a call to day from Mr. Geo. II. Haigh, of Fay etteville, representing the Provident Savings Life Assurance Society,of New York City. Mr. Haigh is an ex-newspaper man, having been at one time editor and proprietor of the Fayette ville Observer, upon which he displayed editorial ability and aptitude of a high order, and says a printing office has not lost its fascniHtion for him j'et. TOWN AND COUNTRY. LOCAL LACONICS PICKED UP HERE AND THEREBY OUR EAGLE-EYED REPORTERS. The thermometer retfisterinfr 70 decrees in the shade, Sunday, Junuary izxn, showH what a mild winter we have had up to the prewnt. That splendid new factory building of Col. JJurgwyn's is one of the bright estjewels in the crown of Henderson's industrial progress. Fred Mitchell calls our attention to an error we made in mentioning his big owl last week. The bird measured. 3S inches from tip to tip, instead of 28 as we had it. A genuine old-time minstrel per formance may be witnessed at Burwell Hall next Tuesday evening. Reserved seat tickets on sale at Cheatham's drug store. Sec advertisement of Prof. 15ell, pro prietor of the Eureka Scalp Cleaner and Hair Purifier, who otters a handsome diamond ring as a prize to purchsers of his preparation. How many of you have resolved to do something toward building up your town and section this year? This paper is ready to do its part who will join hands with it? The tanner who. is now paying at tention to saving manure about his premif.es will not have so ninny fertil izer bills to pay in the fall, that eats up & big part i the crop. Mr. and Mrs. I. C. Rowland will cel ebrate the twentieth anniversary of their marriage, Tuesday evening, Jan. 23rd. We have received a ticket of in vitation to be present on that occasion. Henderson has the ''grip'' on the big gest industrial boom she has yet known. If you do not believe it take a walk around town and see the new enter prises and new buildings springing up in every quarter. S. & C. Watkins have just received a number of large pictorial advertising signs, the handsomest things of the kind wc have seen. It pays to keep one's name and business prominently before the public. The Teachers' Institute to be con ducted by Prof. Chias. 1). Mclver, ought to create a lively interest among our people, the citizens generally as well as teachers. Let the meetings be well attended daily. The population of Henderson has been largely increased by the location here of several families and single per sons since the beginning ot , the new year. Wc have thus gained some valuable crtizens. A cordial welcome to all. If the farmers want to make better crops this year they must get to work early and not stand around idle. There is work to be done about the farm in winter as well as in spring and sum nier. Very many farmers do not seem to realize this, however. Henderson gets a number of good citizens from the Williamsboro section all at once. Four families have or soon will move to town from that neighborhood. Our esteemed friend Mr. R. A. Bullock has already moved Lis family. Welcome to such good cit izens. It speaks for the remarkably mild weather we have been having for the past six weeks when we say that we have been shown full grown apple bios soms plucked from the tree on the 11th of January. Vegetation is putting out and many flowering plants and shrubs are in bloom. We have had the pleasure of meet ing Mr. C. C. Butler, late of Reids ville, who will be manager of Col. Bur gwyn's new plug tobacco factory, and an intelligent and agreeable gentleman we find him to be. Our town is for tunate in having such people as Mr. Butler and his family locate amongst us We are going to make this paper a better aud more acceptable one in every juirticular this year, and hope to make it a visitor to many homes in Vauce and the adjoining counties where it has not heretofore been going. Send us the names of your friends and neigh bors that we may send them sample copies. Good correspondents will add very much to the interest and value of our paper and we are anxious to have short newsy letters each week from all sections of this and adjoiuing counties.

The reason assigned, as it goes out from Washing ton, is that Hicks is not giving satisfac tion (presumably to the patrons of the office), but the real trouble is explained above. What a pitable state of affairs the country has drifted into under the present-administration when a post- office like this a position of impor tance and responsibility is to be tri fled with and farmed out to suit the caprice of a negro Congressman. THE GOLD LEAF What U Said of it Upon Closing; its Eighth Year and Enlarging. A PAPER WHICH DESERVES SUCCESS. The Henderson Gold Leaf has beeu enlarged from 7 to 8 columns. We are glad to see this sign of prosper ity of a paper which certainly deserves success. Danville Time. Prof. Bell's Eureka Sealp Cleaner needs no praise as an inducement to persons to buy it when they have learned to appre ciate its real merit, but he proposes to tlivide profits with some customer and will give a valuable six-stone diamond ring to the person who buys a bottle of his medicine and gets the number cor resnondinir with theone on the ring. Call at Dor-soy's drug store and see the ring. Slightly In Error. Brother Manning, editor of the Hen derson Hold Leaf, has got a move on him. He has not only enlarged his most excellent paper quite rsceutly, but has also issued an attractive and valuable industrial edition. Graham Gleaner. We beg to correct the Gleaner. No trade edition oi the Gold Leaf lias been issued, and we must protest gainst giving us such credit.

If not, make a visit to Young & Daingerfield's dairy farm near town and see theirs. This is their first experience, and a well informed gentleman from Pennsylvania pro nounces it the finest ensilage he ever saw anywhere. This is the feed of the future and its use will be generally adopted as soon as people know more about its value and the ease and cheap ness with which it can be put up. We ask Mr. Young to give the pub lie the benefit of his experience and knowledge on the subject through the columns of the Gold Leaf. Wre want to arouse the farmers on this subject A Strong and Eloquent Appeal. In a late issue of the Richmond Dis patch appears an article written by Mr W. R. Henry, of Henderson. It is an appeal for the remains of Jefferson Da vis to find a permanent resting place in the city of Richmond, the capital of the Southern Confederacy. We pub lish the article in this paper. It is written in Mr. Henry's usnal style, strong, vigorous, graceful, eloquent, classical, and the sentiments therein expressed will find hearty response in the minds and hearts of thousands of persons throughout North Carolina. Mr. Henry pays a high and merited tribute to the bravery, fortitude and heroism of North Carolina's soldiers, and speaking as he does through her representative newspaper in the heart of -Virginia, for their claims, he de serves our special thanks. K. E. HIGHT Has moved next door to Rowland & Powell's. Spenks Mighty Well for Henderson's The Henderson Storage Company has made an assessment to double its warehouse capacity. That speaks mighty well for Henderson's outlook, and we trust the realization will even be rreater than the prospect. Danville Tobacco Journal. Yes. this speaks mighty well for Henderson's outlook, but it is not the only thing that speaks for it, Brother Harman. You ought to see the new manufacturing enterprises springin into lite or renewed activity in our midst and learn of others to come, if you would contemplate an encouraging and prosperous future for the capital of the Bright Tobacco Belt of North Car olina. Will Receive Bids for Water Works, The town of Henderson has decided, by a vote of its Commissioners,to have water works, and advertises for sealed proposals for the construction of the same; bids to be received up to x eb. 15th. It is proposed that it shall be a complete system, upon the franchise plan, with a capecity of 1,000,000 gal lons a day. The water is to be sup plied from a stream two miles from the tower, said tower to be situate in the centre of the town, making it 95 feet higher than the source of supply. The tower is to be built of stone, 100 feet high, with a tank on top 30 feet high and 25 feet in diameter. Most of the pumping can be done by water it is thought. The town will furnish site of tower aud right of way. The length of pipe including distance to pond will be about 8 miles, with not less than 70 hydrants for use of the town. The bids to be for so much per hy drant for a given number of years with the right to buy or not, at that time, as the town may choose. All material and machinery to be of the best qual ity, and to be thoroughly tested by the town before acceptance. l he town ot Henderson has a popu lation of about 4,000, with taxable prop erty valued at $1,200,000. Present rate of taxation two-thirds of one-percent., and $2.00 on the poll, with only one debt, of $39,000. It is situate 45 miles North of Raleigh on the Seaboard Air Line and Richmond & Danville railroad. T. T. nicks, Mayor, or J. II. Brid- gers, city clerk, can give particulars. Success from the Start. The Henderson Tobacco Company, of Henderson, N. C, has been a suc cess ever since it came into the hands of Messrs. Daingeriield & Jenkins. The first named gentleman has severed his connection with the Bank of Hen derson as cashier, and will hereafter devote all his time to his growing smok ing tobacco business. Danville Tobac co Journal. This shows what pluck and enter prise will do, and the success ot these gentlemen demonstrates the fact that there is no better point for the manu facture of the finest grades of smoking tobacco, as this paper has always main tained. To such proportions has their business grown that the services of Capt. Daingerfield (who heretofore has not been an active member of the con cern owing to his engagement as cash ier of the Bank of Henderson) were needed in looking after and pushing, it and he resigned his position in the bank as already stated to give his entire time and attention to his manufactur ing business. As the Journal says, the Henderson Tobacco Company has been a success from the start, but we look for new life and still greater prosperity to characterize its future course. And in this connection we wish to say that while wishing Capt. Dainger- I field the greatest success in the prose cution of his own private business, the friends of the Bank of Henderson can but regret that ha has severed his con nection with that institution. A fine business man, and a genial and accom plished gentleman, he not only made friends for himself but for the bank, and had become to be regarded as well nigh one of the indispensables of that concern. But Capt. Daingerfield has a most worthy and acceptable successor in the person of his brother, as already announced, and dimcult as it may ap pear we doubt not the new cashier will prove himself no less capable and pop ular. Our best wishes are with all concerned. .-. Teachers Institute. A Teachers Institute for the benefit j of white teachers of Vance county, to be held in Burwell Hall on Jan. 20th, 1890, and to continue through the week. Prof. Chas. D. Mclver, who has for the past few months been suc cessfully prosecuting this work in various portions of the State,will be here every day and will conduct the exercises. The County Educational Board has ordered a suspension of all white public schools during that week, and each teacher now engaged in teaching, or who contemplates teaching in the county during the 3"ear, is required by law to be present,and have their names registered by the County Superintend ent as teachers. Both ladies and gentlemen are in vited to be present on every day, and on Friday, the 24th, there will be ad dresses made by Prof. Mclver, Maj. Finger, W. H. P. Jenkins, Esq., of Granville, W. R. Henry, of Henderson, and perhaps others. On that day every white committeeman of the county is requested to be present wflter. in the use of which he has per lecied himself so as to make correspon dence somewhat of the nature of pastime and pleasure rather than a tedious and tiresome duty, he very kindly explained all its mechanism and operation to us. The machine used by Mr. Smoot is a Remington Standard tvpe-writer, and it is what its name implies Me Standard. For speed and j durability it stands at the head, while it is unequaled for ease of manipulation and quality of work. So popular have type writers become that no business office is considered complete without one they are in fact to the business office and counting room what the sewing machine is to the household. The Remington has a rocord of 97 words per minute, which is a long way ahead of the steel pen. This is an age of progress, and the business man who would keep up with the procession must adopt new modes and methods for the more rapid and satisfactory performance of his duties. As the powerful and swiftly moving locomotive is to the ancient stage coach ; the electric telegraph to the horseback messenger boy ; the electric light to the old fashioned tallow candle; the lightning printing- machine to the old time hand lever press, so the type writer has preference over the steel pen and bottle of ink in the office of the man of business who is up with the times. If the advantage and superiority of these little machines wereTully un derstood and appreciated we are quite sure their use would be more generally adopted in our midst. Mr. Smoot will take pleasure in showing his machine and giving particulars concerning it to any who may be interestod on the sub ject. a E. E. HIGHT Has moved next door to Rowland & Powell's. A Pleasing and. Graceful Recognition We take pleasure in transferring to our columns the following concerning a gentleman who very recently became a citizen of Henderson. It is from the Fayetteville Observer, and explains it self: Mr. A. B. DaingerJield left Fayette ville with his family this week, to be come the cashier of the Bank of Hen derson, of which we made mention a week or two since ; but before his de parture a very pleasant incident oc curred in the mammoth dry goods es tablishment of F. W. Thorutdn, testi fying to the regret felt by the propria etor and employees at parting with Mr. Daingerfield. Mr. Thornton presented to him a beautiful gold-headed ebony cane, got ten up for the purpose by Messrs. War ren Prior & Son., with name and length of service inscribed thereon. This was followed by a letter of sincere good-will and friendship, which we ap pend, together with Mr. Daingerfield's acknowledgment : Fayetteville, N. C, Jan. 1, 1890. Mr. A. D. DaimjerJUld: Dear Sir : In parting with you from my corps of salesmen, it certainly is a source of great pleasure to me to heartily bear testimony to your efficient and val uable services while in my employ, cover ing a period of about twenty years. In you I have ever found, under all circum stances, a cheerful, willing and reliable assistant, worthy of all confidence, and evincing a noteworthy, and unusual inter est in the prosperity of my business a position attained by you reflecting credit of the highest degree. However much I regret your decision in severing your con nection with me, my earnest wishes for your prosperity and welfare will accom pany you to your future home and busi ness, and if your success is gauged by your character and worth it will be abun dant. As a token of my friendship and regard, permit me to present you with the ac companying testimonial. With kindest regards, I am yours very trulv, F. W. Thornton.

A CAPITAL PAPER, WELL EDITED. With last week's issue the Hender son Gold Leaf entered upon its ninth year and celebrated the event with an illustrated number of some of the in dustries of the town. The Gold Leaf is a umns to the page, instead of 7 as here tofore. We have frequently spoken of the excellence of the Gold Leaf as a newspaper, but what we have said has fallen far below the real merits of the paper, according to the present styles of expression. It was always our mis fortune to be behind the times in the ! use of adjectives, but what we 6ay is mtended for the naked truth without abatement the Gold Leaf is an ex cellent paper, and if Henderson should at any time lose sight of the fact, it will be the loser by it.
