An immense crowd was in town and the seating capacity of the circus tent was fully taxed. The performance upon the whole was very rood, some of the features beinn remarkably tine. Mr. Harry Loiii;hlinT (brother of our townsman Mr. U. C. Louu'ldin) who is well known in Hen derson, is with the show and one of its lines t, acrobats and specialty artists. His performances on the llyinf.- perch and his groud and lofty tumbling were exceedingly well done and elicited hearty applause. Mr. V F, Wallett, of Henderson, t lie dashing and ac-eompli-hed younv bareback rider and jumping jocky, volunteered to " do a turn" for the company and thus gave his friends an opportunity of witness ing his darint: ami ditlicult feats. His horse being. sick he rode one belonging to the show, and although the animal was trained only to be ridden by a lady and unaccustomed to Mr. Wallett's manner and methods the young gentleman did remarkably well under the circum stances and showed himself to be a finished horseman. I'pon the whole Harris" show is a good one, and while not as larire as some others is worth the price of admission and pleases the audience.

If Henry Hlount is a pro phet he i an exception, for he hat! high honor at home. 15ut he lias gone abroad and established his fame be yond our borders. He lias recently returned from a lecturiim tour through the South Western ami Western States. Everywhere he received the highest encomiums from the press and other leaders of public opinion. He has re turned laden with laurels which be come well the poetic orator. His now famous lecture IJeyond lhe Alps Lies Italy.' is said to be a poem in prose. Well may we believe it. The title of his lecture was a good omen. For beyond the Alps of our borders he found the I taly of his hopes. They crowned him with llowers and intoxicated him with perfumes. The press have a feeling of partici pation in the well earned fame of one of their number. All North Caroli nians will be pleased at the praise which has been showered upon him. Mav his lot in life be as peaceful and free from care as the sunny isles of the great Southern Ocean, which lie embraced by rippling waters and sil vered in the shimmer of falling moon beams. For his fame, there are now no Alps as Louis the (ireat said that for France, there were no longer any Pyrenees. - Haby Carriages! The prettiest and cheapest line in Henderson.

A little infant three or four weeks old was found in thu hall of the Oxford Orphan Asylum early Sunday morning. It was left there, by two" uuknowu oersous who drove over from Hender son between the arrival of the South bouud Atlauta Special and its return going North. They were seen to get off the cars with the little one and procure a carriage, and the driver said he carried them to the Asylum and they left the baby and returned to Hender son and took the North-bound fast train. The little thing was given something to make it sleep and is yet under its influence. Oxford is much excited over the matter, and the little being has had many to see it, and not a few of these noble women have asked that they might have it. The above is an Oxford special to the Xeios-Observer-Chronide. Ve have learned the following facts in couuec tiou with the case: The fast train was signaled to stop a short distance this side of Littleton about 12 o'clock Saturday night. A man and woman got aboard. They got off at Hender son, where a carriage was in waiting for them, the conveyance having been previously engaged of Hardee & Mars- ton. The couple were driven to Oxford. They were noticed to be carrying several bundles, but tue presence of a baby was not known to the driver until a short time before they reached their destination. The driver was ordered to stop just below the Orphanage. The man and woman got out and after being gone a short while returned, entered the carriage and came back to Hcndersou. They took the Atlanta Special bound North, but where they got off we have not been able to learn. Who the persons were is not known. The afl'air carries its own comment. There are Sarsanaiillas and Sarsapa- rillas ; but if you are not careful in your purchase, the disease you wish to cure wilt only be iiuensitieu. Be sure you get Ayer's Sarsaparilla and no other. It is compounded from the Honduras root and other highly concentrated alteratives. I Jo you want to be in touch with fash ion's latest mode? Then buy yourSpring P.onnet and frock of S. & C.

The Atlanta Constitution of Sunday has half a page of sketches aud car toons of popular young business men of that city, and among the number we notice the handsome face of our genial friend Mr. Isham Daniel, a Granville count' boy aud brother of Mr. A. (i. Daniel, of Henderson. He is represented as sitting in a large rocking chair with both feet drawn up under him, tailor fashion, with his arms partially uplifted as if engaged in an animated discussion on the subject ot matrimony or some other moment ous question. While the likeness is a fairly good one, the reporter-artist was thoughtful enough to label it as follow : " Isham Daniel, whose friend ship when once given, is uot washed away by bad weather." Accompanying the picture is the following brief sketch : Isham Daniel is genial as a ray of sunshine bursting through a sky that has been gloomy for a week that is when the parent of all ills dyspepsia hasn't been cutting shines with his digestive organs. Isham is as popuar as a flowering magnolia tree is in a Sahara of pines. If his real disposi tion was not known to be so kindly iu every impulse his sarcams aud irony would arouse bitter personal animosity. Like all brave men, he's a favorite w ith both sexes and has a heart all gold. As a conversationalist he is never at his best unless he is in a rock ing chair large enough to accommodate both of his legs, which he insists upon crossing under his body. Moire Silks are in high vogue this Spring. See the handsome line at Watkins. Just received, abeautiful line of Priuts, which will be sold very cheap, at H. Tiiomason'h Resolutions of Respect.

The readers of the Gold Leaf will be pleased to learn that there is at least one dreaded disease that science has been able to cure in all its stages and that is catarrh. Hall's Catarrh Cure is the only positive cure known to the medical fraternity. Ca tarrh being a constitutional disease re quires a constitutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh Cure is taken internally, acting directly upon the blood and mucous sur faces of the system, thereby destroying the foundation of the disease, and giving the ! patient strength by building up the consti tution and assisting nature in doing its : work. The proprietors have so much faith i iu its curative powers that tbey offer one I hundred dollars for any case that it fails i to cure. eud for list of testimonials. Address, .F. J. Chekey & Co., Toledo, Ohio. t-"Sdd by druggists, 75c. AT THE Y. M. C. A. SUNDAY. A Large Crowd and Fine Address Prof. Ford Monday and Tues day Capt. Frank Cunningham Next Sunday. Capt. W. B. Shaw faced a large au dience last Sunday and gave his lecture on a "Lost Hoy, which was listened to with rapt attention. It was an earnest appeal to the young men to rescue the perishing." He urged those present to ''throw out the life line, "'to the lost boys who are drifting with the tide. The address was de livered in the Captains usual impres sive manner, and was pronounced a very fine efl'ort, (and by some a good sermon). We are sorry that lack of space prevents our giving a fuller syn opsis of this very excellent lecture. Miss Lilzie Piukston sang a solo and Mrs. Dr. F. li. Harris presided at the organ. Prof. S. T. Ford gave two enter tainments in the rooms Monday and Tuesday nights as aunounced. A fair sized crowd greeted the readev the first night, but ou Tuesday the rooms were crowded to the second doo.s. The Association has seldom if ever enjoyed a treat of rarer merit. Every number was greeted with a round of applause aud owing to repeated requests for repetitions ou the second night the programme was somewhat lengthened, but nonetheless eujoyed, and every one sorry when the last selection was given. How Ruby Played," "The Orthodox Team," "The Fashionable Choir," "The Organ Grinder," and "Punch, punch with care," "brought down the house." It is impossible to speak of the others, but it is not too much to say that a Ileuderson audience has not had the pleasure of hearing a finer reader than Prof. Ford for some years. He has a fine figure, a rich voice, and a face that at once captures an audi ence. It is hoped he will visit our town again soon when he will doubt less be recived with an ovation. To add to the enjoyment and pleasure of the entertainments, the Secretary se cured the services of an excellent Italian string band of three pieces, which discoursed sweet music during the evening of Monday, aud ou Tues day Mr. Johnson with his phonograph rendered several selections with the large sounding fuuuel attached, which were distinctly heard by the large au dience. The ladies now have $12.00 in the treasury with which they hope to make some needed and important improvements in the rooms. A uniou mass meeting in the inter est of the work will be held in the M. E. church Sunday night. Addresses will be made, and Capt. Frank Cuu- ningham, of Richmond, will be present and sing. He is also expected to siug at the rooms at the 3 o'clock service for young men. Every one has beard of the singing of Capt. Cunningham and a large crowd will doubtless greet him. By special request he will siug at night, "Savior, Pilot Me."

Editor Gold Leaf : My name is Ned Nutbush, of the county of Vance, named in honor of our dear Old Zeb, who during his life stood by his people, through sunshine and storm, regard less of the President aud his adherauts. He was identified with the heavily taxed people and did all in his power to lessen their burdens, and remained faithful until death. Our Zeb has passed over the dark river, but his name will be revered by all true North Carolinians to the end of time. May we imitate his example in honor, patri otism and love of his native State. Peace be to his ashes. Mr. Editor, I am but a plain couu try man, having never failed to vote the straight Democratic ticket, nor have I ever held office of any kind, therefore I have no political axe to grind. My sypathies are however with the toiling masses, who do more hard work and receive less compensation than any class in the Union, but I am against rings, high tariffs, combinations, trusts aud high salaried of federal office holders, who for years have received fat pay, and live in luxury, while hun dreds of the masses receive so little, they cau hardly keep body aud soul together, and drive the wolf from their doors. Yet these toilers groan under the burden of taxation to support the favored office holder, in his comforta ble position. If the office holder be a representative, he does not deign to notice the laboring man until he ap pears before htm in the capacity ot a candidate for re-election. Mr. Editor, if you will allow me space, I would like to preseut certain truths lor the consideration of your readers.
