LOCAL LACONICS PICKED UP HERE AND THEREBY OUR EAGLE-EYED REPORTERS. T. A. CIoss, trustee, advertises some valuable land to be sold at public auction next Monday, 9th inst. It is time our fertilizer agents were putting their announcements before the public. The Gold Leaf is ready to serve them. The heavy condition of the roads has caused the receipts of tobacco to fall oft somewhat. It is simply impossible to haul full loads long distances over the roads as they are at present. The muddy condition of the country roads, making hauling over them very difficult, has sent the price of wood away up. It is a scarce article in town and a dollar is demanded for a load not bigger than a good stout man could carry at two "turns." The lecture of Rev. Thomas Hume, I). D., at the Baptist church Friday evening was listened to by a large number of our citizens. As was to have been expected a lecture by such a highly intellectual and cultivated gen tleman as Dr. Hume, was both inter esting aud edifying. The condition of the streets of Hen derson is simply abominable. If we cannot have them paved let us at least have stepping stones at all important corners and crossings. This would not cost a great sum and the money would certainly be well spent. What say you, Messrs. Commissioners? We were pleased to see Mr. Claude Wilson, the good looking and energetic young editor of the Wilson Advance, in Henderson last week. We did not enquire the object of his visit, but since it has leaked out that he went home carrying a bottle of Will Cheat ham's rheumatic cure, Pokine, in each coat-tail pocket, everything is clear. To the publisher, Dr. Mactine, the Gold Leaf is indebted for a copy of the National Economist Hand-book of Facts. It is a book full of interesting statistics and other information, and is of special value to members of the Farmers' Alliance aud others. Published monthly at 15 cents a copy or i 1.50 a year. Henderson wants to build up in bus iness aud commercial importance, but she cannot do so without the surround ing country builds up"correiondingly, and vice versa. To build up the coun ty and the villages now witlrn her borders, there should be a thorough co operative cementing together all of the citizens, both in town and county, for the common good of all. Nothing short of this will ever couse Vance's citizens to mount up on the summit of progressive prosperity. The lecture of Dr. Arch Cheatham at the Young Men's Christian Asso ciation rooms Monday night was listen ed to by quite a number of ladies and gentlemen. He talked on the subject of accidents and what to do in such cases until the doctor arrives, his re marks beiug practical and instructive. The methods of resuscitation in case of drowning were illustrated aud explain ed as were the remedies and antidotes for poison, insect bites and stings, burns, cuts, sprains, fractures, bleed ing, &c, and altogether it was replete with interest and information. -- -.m- . .

A Graded School Cor Henderson. It is a matter of great pleasure to us to sec in the proceedings of the Legisla ture yesterday that a bill to establish a graded school in Henderson has passed its second reading. We feel deep in terest in this thing and hope the bill will pass its final reading and become a law. Messrs. J. It. Young and A. C. Zollicoffer went to Raleigh in the interest of this matter Wednesday, aud the result of their efforts is seen in the progress already made. The bill will doubtless pass its third reading in the House to-day, when it will go at once to the Senate, where it is expected it will pass its second reading to-night, final action being taken on it to morrow.

A Distinguished Visitor. Rev. J. William Jones, of Atlanta, Ga., who will be recognized by many of our readers as the author of two or three verjr charming books, a life of Gen. R. E. Lee, Christ in the Camp, the Life and Character ol Jefferson Davis, etc., delivered a lecture at the Baptist church in Henderson Tuesday night. The weather was very rainy and disagreeable and the coming of the distinguished gentleman was not gen erally known, yet a fair sized audience heard him. He spoke on the life and character of Gen. Lee, a subject always fraught with interest to Southern peo ple, and his lecture was one of great interest and beaut'. No man is better qualified to speak on that subject than Dr. Jones, and we would be pleased to have him pay Henderson another visit at some more favorable time. Spring Ilats.

A Great 3Iusieal Event. Manager Poythress tells us the cele breated McGibuey Family, one of the greatest minstrel and concert compan ies traveling, is billed for a perform ance at Burwell Hall on the evening of March 12th. There mre fifteen per sons in the company and they travel in their own private car, The Mar shalltown (Iowa) Daily Times says this of them: A magnificent audience in character aud numbers greeted the McGibney Family last evening. The house was literally packed with our very best peo ple, and many were turned away. Of the entertainment given too much can not be said. Every member of the family is an artist, from the oldest to the youngest, and if one shoiid under take to pick out the special features he would not know where to commence. In short, the large audience was com pletely charmed aud when the McGib ueys return, as we hope they may soon, they will be given a grand reception. They are splendid people, aside from their musical charms. How's This? We offer one hundred dollars reward for any case of catarrh that cannot be cured by taking Hall's Catarrh Cure. F. J.

Two of Kittrell's popular young peo ple, Mr. Gu' V. Barnes and Miss Mary Ella Williams, were married in that place at St. James Episcopal church, Wednesday evening, Feb. 25th. The rector, Rev. M. T.

A correspond ent writing to the News and Observer, gives the following account : The bride was exquisitely dressed in white silk trimmed with brocade and feathers, en train, veil and orange blos soms, and that she and her maids in their elegant, and heeominfr dresses nf white looked, if possible, inore lovely and pleasing in manner, and has his than ever, no one can doubt. hearers iD full sympathy with him The attendants were Miss Annie when he speaks.

One of the most important cases tried at last term of court, and one in which considerable interest centered, was the suit brought against the town of Hen derson by L. L. Edwards. Plaintiff had been arrested in January, 1890, charged with being drunk and disorderly on the street, and was locked up in the town prison or calaboose. He brought suit for damages, alleging that the pri-ion was destitute of comforts and conven iences of any kind, the cells poorly lighted and insufficiently ventilated, that th prison was unclean and injurious to health, &c. Damages wereclaimedin the amount of $2,000. Messrs. Edwards & Wortham appeared for the plaintiff, and Messrs. A. C. Zollicoffer and J. H. Bridg ers represented the town. Able speeches were made on both sides. A number of witnesses were examined and much time was taken up. The case was given to the jury, and after remaining out several hours they returned a verdict in favor of defendant, awarding him $50. It was shown that the town prison is not what it should be, that there has been indifference or negligence on the part of the authorities in keeping it in a clean and healthy condition, and that it is not provided with such comforts and con veniences as arenecessary to the humane treatment of prisoners. It is true it ia only used as a place of temporary con finement, but the charge of the Judge and the jury say in effect, as it is usually kept, it is not a fit placetoshut a human being up at all. Col. Edwards made a capital speech, pronounced by those who heard it to be the finest effort he has ever made in this court house. It was a blending of wit, humor, sarcasm, pathos and logic, and was at times severe in condemnation of the methods employed in many instances in dealing with prisoners. Frequently accidents occur in the house hold which cause burns, cuts, sprains and bruises; for use in such cases Dr. J. H. McLean's Volcanic Oil Liniment has for many years been the constant favorite family remedy. AT HYMEN'S ALTAR. The 31arriage of Mr. H. T. Wat kins and Miss Maggie Mclver. The News and Observer of yesterday publishes the following account of the marriage of our young townsman, Mr. Henry T. Watkins, to Miss Maggie Mclver, at Jonesboro Tuesday : A very large and select company gathered on Tuesday morning, March 3rd, at the hospitable home of Dr. John Mclver, two miles from the flour ishing town of Jonesboro, to witness the marriage of Mr. Henry T. Wat kins, one of Henderson's most progres sive and efficient young lawyers, to Miss Maggie Mclver, in an eminent degree one of the best known aud high est esteemed of the many attractive young ladies ol her section. Much of the intelligence and culture P A, . . , , . . , . of the staid and conservative element ot our lugli toued JNortn Carolina lami 1 lies is to be found in this section of our State, and many of their families were State present to witness the ceremony, which, we think, will bring much peace aud comfort to those who so richly de-! serve it. On account of the feeble state of health of Dr. Mclver, the bride's father, the marriage was very quiet, there being only a few of the most inti mate families in the neighborhood present. Mr. Watkins selected three of his most intimate friends to accompany him from Henderson, and these were his male attendants on the occasion of his marriage. Mr. W. Y. Swain acted as best man with Miss Belle Mclver, twin sister of the bride, as first bridesmaid. Mr. II. M. Cannon and Miss Lizzie Mack, of South Carolina, were the second couple, Mr. Henry Macy and Miss Lizzie C. : Mclver, the third couple. The cere I niony was performed by Rev. Alex, i Sprunt, of Henderson. After the cere : rnony, the wedding party were invited to an elegant dinner, and the happy bride and groom were soon on their way to Florida.

Our readers remember the burning of Dibrell & W alkcr's large prize house a few years ago, together with two or three adjacent buildiugs, aud the nar- rf)W eSf.ane the Methodist church had from serious damage at the time. The building was insured in two companies, the Hartford and Georgia Home, which from some cause refused to pay. Suits were brought against them and the cases have just been finally disposed of, havinar been settled at last term of court. The companies set up the plea that suit to recover had not been en tered within one year. The plaintiffs' reply thereto was that they had been kept from doing so by the long delay on the part of the defendants. The suit against the Hartford In surance Company was decided in favor of the defendants, though they have since agreed to a compromise, settling at $750. In the other case the jury found against the Georgia Home and awarded plaintiffs a verdict for $1,000 and interest for two years. Mr. A. C. Zollicoffer represented Messrs. Dibrell & Walker aud made a strong presentation of his side of the case. The settlement arrived at is due in large part to the skilful aud able manner in which Mr. Zollicoft'er con ducted the matter. A very handsome lot of new aud styl ish chairs, XVIth century finish, just re ceived at S. & C. Watkins'. The Commissioners Indicted. The Board of County Commissioners were indicted at last term of court for cruel and inhumane treatment of prison ers confined in jail, and the grand jury found a true bill. At a former court a presentment was made against them on the same charge, but a true bill was not found in that instance. Acting upon the Judge's charge and in accordance with their sworn duty, the grand jury visited the jail and personally inspected the same. Their report, signed by as good and true men as there are in the county, reveals a sad state of things. It is pos itively revolting to a sensitive and refined nature to contemplate. To say that, according to the report of the grand jury, made after careful aud thorough investigation, upon their oalhs and over their own signatures, a most wretched, shameful and disgraceful con dition of affairs exists with regard to sanitary requirements and the treatment of the prisoners, is putting it mildly But for the feeling of county pride we have, not desiring the true facts as set forth in the wording of the report to go abroad, we would publish that document just as it is together with the bill of in dictment ns drawn bv the Solicitor. But Vance county is ful1 of good people who are not directly responsible for these things, and who knew nothing of them, and in deference to them we desist. Vig orous as we may express ourself about th e matter our language cannot be stronger than that embodied in the documents referred to After his attention had been brought to the matter Judge Whitaker had the 1 craiid iurv aonear before him and caarged them particularly on this point. ffis remarkg surpassed in beauty, elo- , ,rHi;,r f the quence and feehrg anything ot tne i ?. . . . r ., . . . kind ever heard in this court house, 1 Breathing the true spirit of humanity, j full of justice on the one hand and mercy J on the other, touching and tender and sympathetic, appealing in behalf ot kina and humane treatment of prisoners, lunatics and the unfortunate poor, whom we always have with us, dwelling upon the jails and poor houses, and the man ner in which they are usually kept, there were few dry eyes among the large num ber of people who heard him.

For Business Men About. to Think Many a business man complains of stagnation ol business without stopping to consider that, as its name implies, stamation is the stopping (staudin still) of business energy and enterprise. The healthv condition of water is mo- I ... tion. The healthy condition ot busi ness is activity. If a business man falls intathe habit of "letting up" at this time of the year, he makes his owa business stagnation. Improvement ia business comes from individual resump tion of business activity.

Newspaper Advertising Agents. The Forgery Case. Many of our readers hereabouts are familair with, the case of the white man R. W. nammond, alias J. C. Parker, who forged the name of Crow & Marston to a check which he got cashed at the Citizens Bank last De cember. The forgery was soon de tected and Hammond was overtaken and arrested at Dabney. His case came up for trial at the term of court just closed. The case being called aud it appearins to the f?ourt that defendant was insolvent, and it being also suggested that he was insane aud had been iu that condition ever since the war, the Court requested Mr. W. R. Henry to conduct his defense. After a long trial the jury found the defendant guilty. Mr. Henry then moved in arrest of judgment, because of a fatal defect in the bill of indict ment. The Solicitor appealed to the Supreme Court. The Judge said from the bench that he was satisfied, from certain letters which Mr. Henry had received from prominent gentlemen in Virginia, that the defendant was in sane, that the jury was not to blame, however, because the letters could not be introduced in evidence. The following morning Mr. Henry announced that he thought it best to withdraw his motion in arrest and let the defendant go the penitentiary and then he could go before the directors of the penitentiary and have him trans ferred to the asylum should he see fit to do so in the future. Some persons having doubted the genuineness of the letter purporting to be from Dr. Churchill J. Gibson, ofPeters burg. Va., thinking nhat Mr. Henry might have been imposed upon and not knowing that the letter was in response to a telegram from him, Mr. Henry had the Doctor to send another letter under Notorial seal. The following is the letter : Petersburg, Va., Feb. 23, '91 W. R. Henry, Esq., Dear Sir: I have known Richard W. Hammond more than thirty years. In the spring of 1801 he became a com municant of Grace church, of which I am Rector. He was a volunteer in the regiment of Col. Everard Field, of Vir ginia troops, and during the war had a fall from the railroad cars while in mo tion, striking his head and remaining insensible for some hours. He was sent to a hospital and, I think, re moved from active service. Previous to this his conduct had been very cor rect, but after his recovery he devel oped a habit of kleptomania, which caused him to be imprisoned in the jails of Norfolk, Richmond, Petersburg, Baltimore and other places. He was brought before Judge Geo. L. Christian of Richmond, on one occasion, the Hon. Geo. Wise being the Common wealth's Attorney, aud on the testi mony of the Rev. Dr. Kcppler and my self in the presence of an intelligent fury, he was sent to the Eastern luna tic asylum whence he was most inju diciously released by a physician who was uninformed abo.ut such cases. Hammond has periodical returns of nervous restlessness and brain excite ment which shows itself in acts of theft and forgery and from which he seems at the time to be too childish to make efforts to escape. He is a fit subject for a lunatic asylum, and ought to be kept in constant employment and under the eye of a kind and watchful officer. If he is set at large he will certainly do the same thing again. Churchill J. Gibson, Rector of Grace Church, Petersburg, Va. State of Virginia, "j V To wit : City of Petersburg, ) Personally appeared before me, a Notary Public in the city aforesaid, and State of Virginia, Rev. C. J. Gib son, D.

Field to the Judge presiding : Petersburg, Va., Feb. 10, '91. Dear Sir: I have a letter from Mrs. J. W. Home requesting me to write you with reference to her brother, R. W. Hammond, who is confined in jail iu Henderson charged with forgery. I desire to state that Hammond was a member of Co. F, 12th Va. Infantry (which Regiment I commanded) and that he was regarded as a man of un sound mind and if I ani not mistaken was discharged from the service on that account. A few years after the war he was arrested in Norfolk for J breaking into a church and stealing a lot of Prayer Books and I wrote to the Mayor, who dismissed the case, being satisfied that he was a lunatic. He has to my knowledge been confined iu both lunatic asylums of the State, and I do not think that he ought to be held aespousible for his acts. Yours very truly, E. M. Field, Late Col. 12th Va. Infantry. Married. Our Dexter correspondent writes as follows of a marriage that recently took place near there : Mr. E. J.

The MICKOBK KILLKR is prepared on scientific principles. It starts at the root of all disease, and cures by removing the cause of the disease. Do you suffer with Catarrh ? Have you inherited Consumption? Have you any Kidney Disease? Are you afflicted with Rheumatism ? Are you troubled with Asthma? Have you any disease that causes vou anxiety or inconvenience? Have you any disease that your doctor has pronounced incurable? Give lie Microle Killer a Trial. It is no experiment nor an untried rem edy. Hundreds of persons in this city have used or are now using this medicine, and the cures effected in many cases are mir acles. It has cured thousands who have been pronounced INCURABLE. Sold in one gallon jugs. Price three ($3.00) dollars. A small investment, when life and health can be obtained. Beware of fraudulent imitations. They are usually cheaper, as they use that method of imposing on the public. One of them held their price at $'2.50 per gallon for nearly two years. Not being able to get their medicine in at t hat, they have now reduced it to $1.50, which is evidence enough that it has not met with success. A good medicine sustains itself in all com munities. A cheap medicine is the last thing on earth a suffering man wants. The genuine sold only by M. DORSEY, Druggist, HENDERSON, N. C, Sole Agent for Vance County. Notice.
