Hellefontaine (Ohio) Examiner. A Georgia editor thus figures out the profit on a bushel of corn under certaiD conditions : ' A bushel of corn makes four gallous of whiskey, which retails for $19. (Jut of this the government gets $3, the railroads $1, the manufac turers )4, the vender 7, the fanner 40 cents and the drinker the delirium tremens." This signilicant paragraph is from the liuena Vista (Ga.) Patriot : There is more joy in a printing ofhee over one sinner who pays in advance and abuses the editor on every occasion than the ninety and nine just (V) persons who borrow the paper and sing its praises without contributing one cent to keep it out of the poorhouse. J. I. Thompson, district agent of the Sinrer Manufacturing (Jo., wants live. energetic men to canvass, sell and collect for sewing machines.

White, representing the Old Dominion I 'a per Co., of Nor folk, Va. He was much elated over his success and the people he met on the occasion ot this his first visit to Henderson. lie takes the place of Mr. Cleveland Manning who retires from the road to accept a responsible posi tion in the home ollice. A good house and good men all. Mr. Thomas Keavis, formerly of Granville county, but who has been living in Texas the past 40 years, gave his brother Mr. V. W. and sister Miss Sallie, an agreeable surprise on Christ inas day. While they were at dinner he walked in upon them unexpected and unannounced. The scene that fol lowed can be belter imagined than described. It has been just Ji.i years since lie was in Henderson last. One of the best and most creditable performances of the kind ever given in Kurwell Hall, is that of Prof. Harry Holla. He is unouestionabl v one of the best all round artists ever seen on this stage. He is equally good as a magician, lire king, comedian, con tortionist, clog dancer and ventriloquist, and deserves a generous patronage Take the children to see him. Thev will enjoy the performance. George Orenshaw oilers his place situate near town, for sale. There are ten acres of land on which 1,00 grape vines, (Ives and Concord) and 300 select fruit trees (apples and peaches) are growing and in tine bearing. A good live-room dwelling house, large stables and two wells of excellent water mi the place. Mr. Orenshaw's reason for selling is that lie wishes to change his business. This is desirable property and will be sold at a bargain. A private letter iiist received from Mr. W. T. Manning, informs us that he has disposed of his business interests at Dixon, 111., and will start in a few days for Alaska, where he will again make his home. An experience of two or three years in that for away land previous to ls'.'l appears to have been so pleasant and fascinating as to allure him back. His North Carolina friends will wish him well while regretting that ho should take himself so far away again. The rain, the rain. Everything is tlooded, and the end is not yet. Last night and the night before it rained as hard and as incessantly as we ever saw There are washouts on the railroads, and no doubt mauy bridges across creeks and small streams will be carried away. At this writing we near mat, anorehenslon is felt for the safety of the water works dam at Fox's mill. If this should break the town would be left in bad fix until the damage could be repaired.

It is with pleasure that we are able to state that the well, known Davis Hotel at Kittrell, burned some time ago. is to be rebuilt. A postal received from Mr. O. W. HlacknuU yesterday says: Col. W. F. Davis, now in Boston, writes that arrangements have been made for rebuilding the Davis Winter resort at this place. Work will begin in the early summer. The bote!, which will be equipped in a thoroughly up-to-date manner, will be opened for guests next winter.

The OoT.n Leaf flatters itself that among its fbreigu advertisers it has many who come uudcr this head, but none whose record for courtesy and promptness in remitting at the end of each quarter discounts that of the Miles Medical Company, Elkhart, lud. They make it a special" point to send New York or Chicago draft for advertising on matur ity of bill without statement, provided advertising has been run according to contract. Such business methods must commend this house to publishers and others who have transactions with them. Rolla's Royal Entertainers. A competent company of superb specialty artists, vocalists and dancers, will hold the boards at Burwell Hall 3 nights, commencing Thursday, Jan uary 10th. Prof. Holla is spoken of very highly through the State as a magician, ventriloquist, fire king and contortionist.

The usual routine business was transacted, after which the most important matters disposed of were the drawing of the jury for February term of court (published elsewhere) and the follow ing : The offices of surveyor and coroner, aud all township constables who have not- qualified were declared vacant No reason is assigned why the persons elected have failed to qualify. License were granted All bar keepers in the county to retail liquor. No new men applied. The road leading from Sam Clarke's place (beyond Ross' mill) by Gooch's aud out to the old Hicks place on the William8boro road, was declared a public thoroughfare. The vVisli Gratified.

True to their custom and practice for years past Messrs. C. I. Hood & Co., of Lowell, Mass., the well known proprietary medicine manufacturers, have issued an exquisite little calendar for 1895, copies of which they have 6ent us. Beautiful faces are always features of Hood's Sarsapanlla calen dars. Their new design is heart shaped and is ornamented yvith representations of " Summer" and " Winter." A sweet little face which peeps out from a dainty cap, with the snow flakes falling all about, represents the season ot ice and snow, while the sunshine ot sum mer lights up another face at the left. The design was made by one of the most sifted water color artists in the couutry and the work of the litho grapher is seemingly perfect. Hood's calendars, as usual, present all the desired information about the lunar changes and other astronomical events. Ask your druggist for a copy, aud if his supply is exhausted send six cents in stamps for one calendar, or ten cents for two, to C. I. Hood & Co., Lowell, Mass. . There is good reasons for the popularity of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. Davis & Ruzard, of IFest Monterey, Clarion Co., Pa , sav : " It has cured people that our phy sicianscould do nothing for.

Your orders will receive our personal attention. DAVIS & ROSE. Appointed Solicitor. Gov. Carr has appointed Capt. W B. Shaw, of Henderson, Solicitor for this the Third Judicial district. The selection is a good one and our only regret is that he will not hold the office for the full term. Capt. Shaw went down to Pitt court and qualified Mon dav. The conditions upon which he accepted the appointment are under Btood to both Gov. Carr and Mr. Ber nard who will sue for the office in pre ference to accepting an appointment at the hands of the Governor after Mr. Woodard declined the certificate of election. The Governor can appoiut for but two years, whereas the election is for four, and if Mr. Bernard can establish his claims before the court he will be that much better off, honce he takes this course. Capt. Shaw's pur pose in accepting the appointment was' to relieve the Governor of any embar rassment and to aid Mr. Bernard in securing what rightly belongs to him if he is entitled to the office. Unless some one was appointed and duly qualified he had no one to ue and was powerless to recover. And so it was as much in the interest of Mr. Berniud as it was the State and the relief of the Governor that Capt. Shaw cousented o accept. Bernard will enter 6uit at this terra of Pitt court, we understaud. Before buying goods advertised at cost, look at our stock. We will not be undersold. Davis & Rose. DEATH OF DR. C. S. BOYD. A Popular and Highly Esteemed Citi zen Passes Away Unexpectedly. Many of our citizens were pained and surprised Sunday at the announce ment that Dr. C. S. Boyd was lying in a critical condition at his home in this place and his physicians had pro nounced his recovery impossible. All day long there were anxious watchers at his bed side and solictious enquirers in all parts of the town. The dav wore away and the sick man gradually grew worse. He had not been well for several days and on Saturday seemed to realize his dangerous condition. He was measurably calm but expressed a feeling of alarm. He did not think he would get well. About 10 o'clock at night he became unconscious and re mained so uutil 2:30 o'clock Monday morning when he ceased to breathe and the immortal part of the whole souled, chivalrous uatured man who only a short while before was the very picture of robust health and vigorous manhocd separated from its tenement of clay and winged its flight into the presence of the God who gave it. The entire community mourns deeply his death. lie was one of our most prominent and well known citizens and enjoyed the implicit confidence and universal admiration of all our people. Few, indeed, of the people of Henderson had so many friends as he, aud his death has greatly shocked the entire community. He had been a res ident of this town about eleven vears aud, by his affability of manners, the nobility of his nature, and high profes sional skill and accomplishments, had gained the confidence and esteem aud won his way to the hearts of all who kuew him. Dr. Boyd was one of the fiuest dent ists in the state. He stood at the very head of his profession, in which there were few his equal and none his superior. He was a man ol noble and generous impulses, a loyal and stead fast friend and warm hearted compan ion. He was a devoted, affectionate and indulgent husband and father and his home life was beautiful. Twice married death had claimed both wives, the last one mother of the youugest two of three daughters having died about five years ago. The ways of Providence are mysterious, indeed, and it seems an indescribable pity that men of such activity and usefulness should be removed from a field of so great promise to themselves and value to the public. It mav be for the best, but it certainly seems hard to realize it. In the death of Dr. Boyd Henderson has lost a valuable citizen, the deutal profession a useful and honored mem ber, and his associates a warm and sympathetic friend. He was a man of brave and liberal views and yet a man of deep convictions. He ueyer courted the favor of the iunueutial. only in recognition of his own merit aud never sacrificed principle for .popularity. His standard of honor was high and uncom promising and his integrity as a busi ness man was above reproach. Dr. Boyd was in his sixtieth year, having been born in Warren county in 1835. The many friends of this dis tinguished gentlemau will read of his death with sorrow and their hearts will bleed with sympathy for the afflicted family circle. The funeral was held from the Church of the Holy Inuoceuts at 2 o'clock Tuesday afternoou. The ser vice was conducted by the rector Itev. J. E. Ingle, assisted by liev. Mr. Orpen, ot New lork. A large pro cession of sorrowing friends to whom the deceased had endeared himself by his many uoble and mauly qualities, escorted the body to the cemetery where it was sorrowfully and tearfully laid to rest.

W nether mauy were kept away on this account or not we can not say. We did not attend, but are told that the company is a good one and the play was well presented. It is to be regretted that so good a company is not devoting its time aud talents to a better play one less objectionable than the pictures posted about tow n show this to be. The end aimed at when Mrs. Stowe's book was written has been accomplished. Of that it is not necessary now to speak A new generation has sprung up since theu, who know little aud care less about the institution of slavery. To the older oues such scenes as depicted on paper, to which we object, are not pleasaut to dwell upon. Then what is the good of reviving old memories or creating new trains of thought in this directum? e tail to see where any one is benefited thereby outside the cotuuauv : whose only purpose is to rake in the dollars. To a refined, sen sitive nature, young or old, a man with hands tied across a stake iu front, back bared to the waist and a burly overseer with a big bull whip m hand, sleeves rolled un. ready to plv the lash, is not a very pleasing picture to look upon and those representing a fleeing slave, yvith men and blood hounds iu hot pur suit, are no less shocking to contem plate. Yet. these were the kind of 1 pictures with which the town was billed announcing the coming perform ance. Thev were an insult to both white men and black men, and we be lieve were so regarded. In justice to the management ot the company yve are told that barring the blood houuds on the stage and one or two other fea tures the performance was less objec tionable than the pictures shown out side. If Mr. Griswold is to coutiuue his tour through the South let him dis card some of his paper" and he will make more money and gain more favorable opinions from both races.

Robert Van Deventer, pastor of the Henderson Baptist church, hav ing resigned the charge which he has so well and faithfully held the past eight years, and accepted a call to Burlington, left last week for his new home and field of labor. It is with exceeding regret that his congregation and the jeop!e of the community gen erally witness the departure of Mr. Van Deventer and his excellent wife. Their place among us will be difficult to fill. They will be greatly missed in the work of the church and in social circles. The citizens of Burlington are to be congratulated upon having them locate there. Mr. Van Deventer is one of the most earnest and conscientious preach ers we know. We admire his origiuality and devotion to duty as he sees it. He is a man of ability, strong in argument, deep in thought, vigorous in style, pleasing in manner. The church mem bership has grown under his adminis tration and its coudition otherwise has been healthy and progressive. With such a record to his credit his late charge sustains a positive loss in his resignation and going away. He is a good preacher aud a devoted pastor, greatly beloved by his cougregatiou. e commend him and his wile to the citizens ot Burlingtou. While wishing them well in their new home, the Gold Leaf but voices the sentiment of the people of Henderson wheu it says that we regret to lose Mr. aud Mrs. Van Deventer as citizens of our community. - If you need wall paper call on Davis & Rose.

It is very gratifying to a publisher to receive such letters as yve did a few days ago from C. I. Hood & Co., the great proprietary medicine manufac turers of Lowell, Mass. In submitting a new contract for carrying their ad vertisement another year, they write : We thank you for the excellent service of the past year. We desire to remain in j our columns the ensuing year, aud to this end enclose contract which please sign and return Trusting that our business relations will be as pleasant the ensuing year as heretofore, we are, very truly yours, &c. The above courteous and kindly words conveying a sense of pleasure at the service rendered, as well as satis faction at the returns made, as implied in the desire to renew contract, were appreciated by us almost as much as the receipt of check for last quarter. There is a moral iu this. If advertis ing does not pay would such men as C. I. Hood & Co., expend hundreds of thousands of dollars yearly in that way? Certainly uot. And if they did not find the Gold Leaf a helpful medium in spreading the fame of Hood's Sarsaparilla, Hood's Pills, &c, aud increasing the sales of same in this community, do you thiuk they would coutinue paying out good money to it year after year as they do? Not much. If it pays them, then why will it not pay you to keep your name and busi ness before the public by employmg its advertising columns as they aud others of the most successful and intel ligent men throughout the country do? To give some idea of the immensity of this concern and the magnitude of their business, yve will state iu this connection that Hood's Sarsaparilla Laboratory has three acrees of floor area, and is the largest building in the world devoted exclusively to the pro prietary medicine business. . .
