The population of Henderson has
been largely increased by the location
here of several families and single per

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

The post office matter has taken a
different turn since Mr. Hicks refused
to take the negro Pope in. Congress
man Cheatham proposes to oust Hicks
and put in another man. 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. Our
friend should ditinguish between an
advertisement of one man (though he
is a "whole team of himself ''), and the
business and industries of a town like

The Kccti of the Future.
Farmers, do you know how to put up
ensilage, the best and cheapest of all
stock feeds? 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.

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

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.

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. Success to
