COOPER. o- North Carolina's Foremost Warehouseman. -o- A Brief Sketch of His Lite and Has Built Up. 0 We take pleasure in presenting here with a well executed likeness and brief sketch of the life and business career Ci a gentleman who needs no introduc tion to readers of the Gold Leaf. The name of D. Y. Cooper is known wher- ever this paper is read and his business i is urawn irom every section wnere it goes throughout the tobacco producing districts cf this and the adjoiningStates. Much should b accredited a man ! who has, by hia own unaided abilities, succeeded in rising to an honorable position in business and social circles. Mr. Cooper commenced life with no friendly hand to assist, but by honest endeavor and native talent succeeded in making a successful career. Starting in lile a poor boy he was compelled to work hard and practice economy and it was in this school that he learned the industrious and frugal habits that enabled him to lay the foundation of a great and successful business. He is in truth a self-made man, and by native force and energy of character, that win the confidence of the public, has placed himself in an exalted position among those who have had social or business relations with him. Locating here in the fall of 1872, Mr. Cooper established himself in bus iness as a warehouseman, and has been actively and conspicuously inden tified with the tobacco trade ever since. He has exhibited evidences of busiuess sagacity, which, coupled with nerve and pluck, have made him eminently successful in his special line of cfl'ort, as in fact he has in whatever pursuit he has devoted his energies and tal ents, and has, by his example, put into operation a moral aod progressive practical energy that is seen to-day in the vigorous growth and prosperity of the place. His success proves the boundless possibilities of earnest, well directed application, sustained by indomitable courage and a nrm oeuei m the iuture growth and flourishing condition of Henderson and the farming interest be hind it. Quick to act, he is at the same time cautious and sagacious, and although his business covers a wide range of enterprise, he has been singu larly fortunate in all his undertakings. Beginning his career with little cap ital, and at a time when the possibility of establishing a permanent leaf mar ket in Henderson was but a gloomy prospect to less courageous men than Mr. Cooper, his success shows what force of pluck, a well-balanced mind and plenty of common sense can accom plish. It was a hard struggle to win success under such circumstances and surroundings, but he had the essential qualities in him that win in the end. His push, energy and keen foresight have placed him in the front rank, and there is no better warehouseman in North Carolina to-day than D. Y. Cooper. Having been reared on a farm he gained a knowledge of tobacco, and thus paved the way that led to the building up of one ol the greatest ware house businesses in the two States. As a waehouseman Mr. Cooper tands pre-inently at the head. Per fectly conversant with the business in all its details, the wide reputation and extensive patronage his house enjoys, shows that he turns his superior knowl edge to good account for his patrons. He is a man who has proved himself useful, earnest and sincere in the build ing up of the town and market thereby contributing to the great pecuniary in terest of the tobacco planters through out this section. It may truthfully be said that Mr. Cooper is the father of the Henderson market, which dates only as far back as 1873. On the 29th day of January, of that year, th first leaf tobacco was sold in Cooper's warehouse, an unpre tentious one-story Jrame building, which at that time was quite ample for all immediate demands. The firm then was J. C. & I). Y. Cooper, Mr. I). Y. Cooper having associate with him his uncle Mr. tL C. Cooper, Sr.. of Oxford. This building was occupied until 1878. when another and better location was secured and a new frame structure. 50x140 feet, erected thereon. In the mesn time the original house had been several times enlarged. The firm re mained the same until 1884. when it was dissolved by mutual consent, the business passing into the sole owner ship and management of Mr. D. Y. Cooper, who had always been the active member of the concern and man aged everything connected with it. He then launched his boat on the sea of. business with no on- at the helm but himsci" ,iud the great establishment he now controls is an exponent of his worth and indomitable -nergy. His Build a Home. Have you a lot that you want to im prove by putting a good house on it, either for your own use or to rent? Kiv. ten or more shares of stock in the Cove nant Building and Loan Association will enable you to borrow the money to do it with. You pay back the loan in small monthly installments about what the rent would be, and at maturity of stock you have paid for the house. Every laboring man and every man of family ought to have a home of his own. and this is the easiest and most practicable way of securing it. You can learn full particulars about the character and workings of this company by calling at this office. ' oct 1 5 Forty-seven (47) acres of land near the Bear Pond, known as Mrs. P. M.

Business he wonderful success is familiar to every man in this section, and for that mat ter the leading members of the trade throughout the country. Prior to 1884, when Mr. Cooper be came soie owner the house had under gone enlargement upon its original size seven cunercnt times, as the pressing demands of its growing patronage n cessitated, uutil its floor capacity equalled if it did not excel that, nf nnv other warehouse m the State at that time. The building as it then stood was thought to be adequate in every way to the requirements of this market for many years to come. But this did not prove so in the light of subsequent events. Henderson was destined to acquire still greater proportions as a tobacco market, and with its growing prosperity the busiuess of Cooper's warehouse increased also. So rapidly did it grow that the building was no longer in keeping with the progressive spirit of the times and the requirements of its commanding trade. So the pres ent mammoth establishment was de termined upon, and its erection was begun in the summer of 1887. It is a large and well built structure of brick, covering an erea 204 feet long by 100 feet wide, with a basement for storage purposes 70 by 204 feet. It is a sub stantial and well arranged establish ment, lighted by electricity and fitted up in modern style, everything being planned with an eye to comfort, con venience and adaptability to the pur poses for which it is designed. A portion of it is two stories high above the basement, handsome in architect ual design and excellent workmanship. The sales room is a splendid one in every respect. The sky lights are numerous and so arranged as to show ; tobacco to best effect bringing out its nue qualities io superior advantage. while the floor is pronounced by com petent judges to be the finest of its kind in the South. Springing from the soil, so to sneak. bom and reared as he was on a farm, Mr. Cooper naturally cherishes the warmest sympathy and entertains the liveliest interest in whatever concerns or affects the farmers. He is himself one of the largest land owners and most extensive planters in the county, and in nothing does he take deeper pride and hnd more pleasure than in his farming operations, which, notwithsuandintr his other engagements he looks after with scrupulous care and. makes profit able as he does -everything else. Personally Ml-. Cooper is one of the most affable of men, and is very popu lar, not only with his thousands of patrons, but with his competitors and associates. Wherever tobacco is grown throughout this eutire section of North Carolina and Virginia for an hundred of miles distant, Cooper's warehouse is a household word and its its popularity is evidenced by the splendid patronage it enjoys. The unsurpassed accommo dations and satisfactory prices at which all grades of the leaf are sold there, bring it. A warehouseman without a superior, a judicious and shrewd business man. bright, friendly and companionable, still in the early prime of manhood, Mr. Cooper has won a most enviable reputation and has a future of brilliant promise before him. He is one of the most capable men in the business as his success goes to prove. His old patrons stick to him and new ones are constantly added to the list, the cry, Ol iver Twist like, being for " more." Friends and opponents in business alike render generous tribute to his sterling integrity and business ability, and there is perhaps no man iu the country whose acquaintance with every branch of the trade and the leading men in it is more familiar thau his. It was a lucky day for Henderson when Mr. -Cooper cast his lot with her. ine value ol buch a man to any com munity: cannot be estimated. Intelli gent, wide-awake and progressive in his ideas. Mr. Cooper has done a great work for Henderson. As a citizen, ever loyal to the interests of his town, there are few his equal, and none bis superior. Standing ready at all times to contri bute money and to establish any needed enterprise or public work, he has made j a name for himself that will last and his career and example will prove a worthy one for honest struggling young men to imitate. Mr. Cooper gives employment to a large number of persons, and there is not one but what loves him and would make almost any sacrifice if they thought it would be to his interest. Perhaps a higher tribute could be paid to him than this. The Toledo Weekly Blade Free.

A lot of Tar bell cheese just received, at the Immense i REV. ROBERT O.BURTON, D. D. ! Death of This Eminent Methodist Divine at His Home Near Wel don. From the Ronnokt Xeut of Dec. 24th, we take the following : The Rev. R. O. Burton, D. D., died at his home about five mile from this place on Thursday last, the 17th inst., after au illness of about two weeks, in the Slit year of his age. Dr. Burton was in ex cellent health until he attended the an nual sesBion of the X. C. Conference which convened on the 2"th inst, at Greenville. While there he took deep cold on account of exposure on Sunday when it snowed all day. He returned home and in a few days was confined to his bed with ru attack of bronchitis, which, enfeebled by age, his system was unable to resist. Dr. Burton was born in Campbell county, Virginia, on June 3Hh, 1811. He was appointed a cadet ut West Point and was there while General R. E. Lee ' was post adjutant. General Beauregard was a cadet there at the same time. After a year or two he resigned and re turned home, and shortly afterward en tered the M. E. Church and joined the Virginia Conference, which at that time embraced the whole of North Caroliua, at Petersburg during the sewsion of I83,'l. He was sent by the Conference to work in that portion of it included in this State, and while engaged in pastoral ser- iripe mnrrieil tlio Hjintrhter of i'ol ndren' .Tovner. of thin roAntv. one nf the most 1 Tirmiiif'iir, mn in tlit Start nr rhnt dnv. 1 He lived thereafter in this county, though retaining his connection with the Con ference, and working in various parts of its bounds. The offspring of thiB mar riage were John O., Andrew J., Robert ()., and Henry. Sometime after the death of his first wife he married the daughter of Maj. J. Pearson, also of this county. The children of the second marriage are Olivia, Yirgisius, James, Roberto and Edward. All these survive him and were gathered about his bedside watching the flickering flame of life ex pire as the soul of their beloved and loving father winged its way to brighter realms above. As he grew weaker and weaker ou that Thursday morning the watchers knew the end had come and as he breathed his last the grief for the departure of their honored father could not be sup pressed, though full well they kneW th mortal had put on immortality. After the Xorth Carolina Conference was erected he became a member of it and retained his connection with it until his death, with the exception of the four years of the war when he was t ransferred to the Virginia Conference. He was one of the most prominent members of that body and wielded a mighty influence iu its deliberations. He tilled some of the most important pastorates in the State and was several times Presiding Elder. He was some years ago very prominently spoken of in connection with the Episco pal office one of which was then vacant. Some years ago the University of North Carolina conferred upon him the degree of Doctor of Divinity, and most worthily was it bestowed. Dr. Burton was a deep and clear thinker, and few indeed were the subject upon which he did not have fully digested and well defined views. He always had the courage of his convictions and whether in the pulpit or in debate he was eloquent and powerful. His sermons were productions ofthe highest order and his congregations often sat spell bound by his grand flow of oratory. He was a faithful servant in the work of the Master, and the account of bin steward ship will receive the plaudit of " well doue, thou good andfaithful servant, enter into the joya of the Lord." He has entered into the joys of his Lord, aud now rests from his labors, with neither ear-, nor pain, nor sorrow, and not a wave of trouble rolls across his peaceful breast. Dr. Burton was buried r riday atter- noon at " Poplar Grove," the old Joyuer homestead, where other members of the family are buried. The services were conducted by the Rev. S. I). Adams. Presiding Elder of this district, assisted by the Revs. W. L. Cuninggim, of Henderson, J. N. Cole, of Raleigh, R. P. Trov and J. M. Rhodes, of Littleton, A. McCullin, of Warreuton, W. W. Rose, of Toisnot, who had cometopay the last sad tribute of respect to the venerable man of God. THEIR FAVORITE GEMS. "I place diamonds above all other gems in my esteem," said Mrs. Frederick W. Vanderbilt. "It would be difficult for me to select from opals, diamonds and amethysts which is my prime favorite," said Mrs. Leland Stanford. "My preference among gems Is unques tionably for the diamond," said Mrs. Don Cameron, wife of the senior senator from Pennsylvania. "Diamonds are certainly the most beau tiful of all gems," was the reply of . Mrs. William Astor when requested to name her favorite precious stone. Adelina Patti ia lavish in her collection of precious stones, and it is one of the de lights of her life to spend hours at a jewel er's running over his treasures and mak ing her selections. "I think that, while I am an ardent ad mirer of all gems, I may safely say that the opal is my favorite," was the answer of Mrs. Roswell P. Flower, the wife of the millionaire New York congressman. "I cannot lay claim to being a connois seur in previous stones, and perhaps, there fore, it would be presumptuous in me to name my favorite gem," said Mrs. John Wanamaker, wife of the postmaster gen eral. Said Mrs. Senator M. S. Qnay, of Penn sylvania: "Give me Bapphires or give me death. I know of no other gem whose color , is so exquisite as that of the sap phire." "Moonstones are among the most beauti ful of all gems in my opinion," said Mrs. John W. Noble, wife of the secretary of the interiors "My interest in them was largely increased by reading Wilkie Col lins' great story of 'The Moonstone.' " I think t Jiat. all things considered, pearls are my favorite gem," said Mrs. Willie K. Vanderbilt. "To be u re, they lack the brilliancy of dianiouds, but they more than make up for that by their graceful form and delicate whiteness of color." My favorite gem?" said Mrs. James G. Blaine, echoing the question. "I am a great admirer of diamonds. To me the priucipni beauty of the diamond is its brilliancy, and pure white ones are seldom or never so brilliant as those that area little off color. Hence my preference for the latter."

It" there is any one thing in the world I into which the element of "luck" does not enter, it is the handling of a great newspaper.
