so handsomely as to make them want
to go there again is evident from the
program arranged lor their entertain
ment and pleasure.
Attention is called to a card announc

having qualified as executrix of the

to said estate are asked to make imme

This from an exchange contains
more truth than poetry: When a man

the organ that devotes its lime and en

which it is published. But when it
comes to economizing they forget the

An exchange gives the following
recipe for making scaudal, which some
folks kuow too well how to do already:
Take one grain of falsehood, a handful
runabout, of same quantity of limber
tongue, six sprigs of backbite and a
spoonful of " don't tell it." Add a few
drops of envy and a little discontent
and jealousy, strain it through a bag of
misconstruction, cork it in a meddle
some bottle, hang it on a skein of
street yarn and shake it well before
Mr. ltichard Marstou has employed
his versatile pen in a new direction,
running into poetry. This may be a
surprise to his friends, but we will
vouch for its beius a meritorious bit of
rhyme. It is a reply to some Hues
entitled "Dear Husband, Come Home,"
published in the Gold Leaf June
27th, and is supposed to be the lan
guage and sentiment of a member of
the last North Carolina Legislature.
We will publish it next week. Don't

Boys, don't be idlers. If you have
no regular employment take up some
study and read good, healthy books,
but do not loaf about the streets in the
company of idle, shiftless and vicious
companions. There are more boys
ruined by evil associates than through
inherited criminality. Bad company
tends to blunt the finer feelings, cor
rupt the morals, and invariably brings
the innocent to look upon wrong with
itwlilVerence. When a boy gets to this
stage he is at the critical point of his
life. Exchange.
Wherein We Take Our Leave.
The editor packed his collar box and
left town Tuesday.
He chose the day time fcr his going
and by so doing avoided any suspicions
concerning his movements.
His departure was not generally
known, however, which accounts for
thebsence of brass bands, military
and prominent citizens at the train to
see him off.
Some men leave town for the town's
good, but he goes for his own good
He has gone to Greensboro to meet
his brethren of the State Press who
hold their annual conclave among the
cultured and hospitable people of the
City of Flowers this week.
From there he will go to Morehead
and listen to what the wild waves are
saying and incidentally acquaint
himself with the fare of the Atlantic

It requires great sacrifice to tear
himself away from the sacred precincts
of Henderson, home, and minding
the baby, but he will try to stand the
painful ordeal as he hopes his friends
will do until he returns.
The paper is left in good hands and
they are not the sheriff's. He does
this because he has no desire to take it
with him, one of his principal reasons
for leaving being to get rid of it
for a short while at least.

smoothly during his absence and that
Ma)ror Southerland will not be com
pelled to call on the police to disperse
any mobs. In that event Henderson's
"hnest" might get their new uniforms
messed up.
Any donations of houses and lots,
carriages and horses, or other evi
dences of loving regard may be left at
the office with the man in charge. He
will also cheerfully receipt for all
money paid as well as accommodate in
dividuals who call to whip the editor.
Unlike the Father of his Country
who gave his people a farewell address,
the father of the Gold Leaf only
gives his an au revoir.

A Thought for the Day.
The best things iu the world do uot
come to us ready made. Truth must
be searched for with patient toil.
Beauty must be wrought out with
painstaking devotion. Food and rai
ment roust be wrested from the furrow
and woven in the loom. And all our
social and political institutions must be
fought for on the field of battle, defen
ded in the forum, and vindicated in the
courts. Even our religious faith must
be thought out anew in the soul-con
flicts of each generation, or they become
mere forms of words, devoid of life and
power. William DeWitt Hyde.
To Young Men.
There are a ereat many vouug men
iu this world nice young men who
are coming ou to take the places of
the older ones. They are coming ou
rapidly, too.
Young man, hear a word. Learn to
walk before you try to prance. Don't
hunger and thirst after a boudoir car
while you are junior clerk and have to
sweep out the store and run errands.
If you are a young physician, don't
expect to make it all in the first year.
Your father, perhaps, rode four or five
horses to death before he was able to
put Brussels on the floor, and lean
back in his easy chair ana announce
that he would answer no calls aftar
six p. m.
If you are practicing law, remember
that the old attorney whose office you
are sweeping out, wore white hair, and
not much of that, before he began
taking whole farms for single fees in
small cases. And bear in mind, too,
that they didn't spend every cent of it
as fast as they got it. Durham bun.

Resorting to Heroic Measures.
An honest and fearless newspaper
some time pays pretty dearly for ex
pressing its convictions. This in the
way of loss of patronage subscriptions
and advertisements. But no editor
who is fit to occupy the position he
does, is ever deterred from doing his
duty as he sees it by a little thing
like that. Satisfied that he is right
the true editor takes no account of the
probable losses or gains that will fol
low his course. These thoughts are
suggested by the following paragraph
from the Wilmington Star. It says:
When a rich merchant withdraws his
advertising and subscription from a
newspaper because irs convicuonn uu
not permit it to agree with him as to its
financial policy, he uses a strong argu
ment, and one which, if universally
adopted by the extreme gold standard
advocates", would crush or cripple many
newspapers owned by poor but honest
men. it may oe uouoteu, uuwevei,

using it. Mr. Nelton takes no risk in
doing this because the remedy is a certain
cure for the diseases for which it is intended
and he knows it. It is for sale bv Melville

Expert on Cornbread.
The trentleniau who represents the
Fifth North Carolina district in Cou-
gress makes no blatant culinary preten
tions. Bat when a party o! his colleagues
were discussiDK the subject of cornbread
he surprised them by going down into
the House kitchen and cooking what
was afterward said to be the most deli
cate corn pone they had ever tasted.
Mr. Settle recommends trie use oi tne
freshest but coarest ground flinty corn
meal; a stiff dough being made witn
salt water and meal. These three ingre
dients are all that are needed. The
dough is shaped intocones, then wrapped
in cabbage leaves and buried in the not
ashes. The secret of the formula lies in
the fact that the hard, flinty particles of
the corn burst open something in the
manner of popcorn in the process of
cooking renders the bread delicious.
I find in the JSew xoric sunuay
Herald of April 21st, among the Hon
orable Connoisseurs of cuisine, or, in
other words, practical cooks among
Congressmen, that Hon. Thos. Settle,
of N. C, is alluded to as an expert on
cornbread. While I am neither a
congressman nor chef, I know corn
bread, as I have in my boyhood days
in the old North State handled corn
from planting, through all of its rami
fications, till it has been ground into
meal, mixed and cooked. Now, I pre
sume you have misquoted or misrepre

preparation of the dough that is correct,

left in the basket; if I take them out
three at a time I have one egg leftin

if I take them out five at a time I have

famous for its cures of rheumatism. For

Frank Leslie's Midsummer Pop
ular Monthly.
The Auirust (Midsummer) number of
Frank Laliet Popular Monthly easily takes
the lead of the seasonable illustrated
magazines. It appears in a handsome
new cover, of appropriate artistic design,
which will be permanently retained. The
new cover is embellished with a portrait
of the late Frank Leslie, founder of the
magazine, and the father of illustrated
periodical literature in America. An ed
itorial article on " The Traditions and
Profrress of Illustrative Art" says: "Not
only does the portrait of Frank Leslie
adorn our cover and page, but his enter
prising artistic impulse, exemplified in
the motto Progress and the Spirit of
the Age, has animated the making of
this, as it wilt of every future number of
this justly acclaimed 'Monarch of the
Magazines.' " This promise is splendidly
fulfilled in the Midsummer number, which
presents a really unprecedented display
of over a hundred charming pictures, in
cluding a full page plate in colors, with
wood-engravings, pen-drawings and half
tones by the best artists of this country
and Europe. These pictures illustrate

The Need of a SUte Bar Association
Xln. Editok: Ever since I have been
niivenu.nt with courts and their mode
hecome more
there exists a exeat and pressing need
among us for an association of the
members of the bar throughout the
State, having for its object the elevation
of the moral tone of the fraternity, th
discountenancing and suppression ol
dishonest and unprofessional practice,
and the raising of the standard of
requirements for admission to the pruc-tic-6
of law in our several courts.
This conviction has taken such deep
root that I am unable to refrain from
expressing it publicly, and inviting the
criticism or co-operation, or both, as
they will, of my legal brethren by caning
to their attention a few of the evils and
abuses which such an organization as I
have suggested might, at least in a
measure, correct.

The topics, discussions and speeches

that the colt was not drowned or got

get him out." This was done after a
time by means of fastening ropes and
chains around his body and drawing
him up by means of a windlass. He
fell back, when about half way to the

slipping so as to cause him to lose his
balance, but he appeared to be none

says there was considerable water in

putting his front ones on the side of the
well. And then the water reached to
his neck he barely being able to keep
his head out of it.
Mr. Fleming tells us that wo or

and one slight cut on the head are the
only marks to tell of the unusual ex

attention to
abuses. The question is, How can the
evil be remedied? I answer, a State Lar
Association could do much towards
accomplishing the desired end. A Code
of Ethic? adopted and promulgated by
the who'.-body of lawyers of the State,
in convention assembled, would certuiuly
carry with it great weight, and would
operate to the great advantage of the
profession generally, and of its younger
members in particular.
The subject of legal ethics is but one
of the many urgent questions which
would demand the attention and call for
the prompt action of a Bar Association.
There are many others.
The dignity and usefulness of the pro
fession should be maintained and pro
moted. It should be purged of unworthy
members and should punish and discount
enance unprofessional and dishonest
practices which have brought a great
profession into much disrepute. Itshould
guard the avenues to the profession and
should oversee legislation, in order to
prevent the demoralization of its princi
ples and to save its teachings Irom the
hand of the spoiler and the inevitable
effect of ill-considered laws. It should
labor to secure for the bench the best
professional talent of the State by pro
viding better compensation, or other
wise, and should, in all things, combine
the voice and influence of the bar for the
advantage of the profession and the
good of the Commonwealth.
These things need no argument. Every
lawyer must see and recognize the crying
need of the hour and the benefits to be
derived from a North Carolina State Bar

sion of opiniou by my legal brethren as
