Two precious little children have been taken from the happy household group and two little places are vacant around the family altar. Friday morning the death angel claimed a bright and beautiful little girl aged about three years, aud ere the flowers had withered on the new made mound beneath which the lovely form was laid to rest, another precious bud was plucked from hearts already anguished. Yesterday afternoon the baby idol of the household a sweet little girl one year old, died after a short but severe sickness of whoopiug cough complicated with other troubles. Doth were unusually bright aud at tractive childreu and the heartfelt sympathy of the community is ex tended to the stricken parents in this hour of their sore affliction. ..'hi to must l I I.-- Firemen's Tournament.

He died at his home near Middleburg Sunday night. His sickness was brief and his death was a shock to his friends. Mr. Har- was an honorable, upright man, q.uiet and dignified in manner, indus trious and frugal in his habits, and his life and character were an example for hi3 fellow-men. He was a farmer and loved the pursuit of agriculture in which he was very successful. Mr. Harris was about 74 years old, we think.

POYTHRESS. Quietly Married. At the residence of Mr. W. D. Bur- well, home of the bride, at 9:30 o'clock Wednesday night of last week, two of Henderson's well known young people were united in marriage. They were Mr. W. W. Parker and Miss Tempie Burwell. The affair was a very quiet one but few of their friends being in formed of their intentions until after it was all over. The ceremouv was performed by llev. Junius W. Millard, of the Baptist church. Mr. aud Mrs, Parker left ou the orth bound At lanta Special for a visit to Baltimore and other places. The bride is an estimable young ladv. of lovely character and attractive niesence and has a larsre circle of friends and admirers. The groom is a popular and successful druggist and a worthy and popular young gentleman who has the confidence and esteem of those who know him. Save Your Fruit. inere is euough iruit wasted on any ordinary farm where there is an orchard, every year it fruits, to pay the taxes ami buy most of the necessary supplies if taken care of. This ofteu goes to waste,Jthrough carelessness, but oitencr for want of a. ite outlay and needed information. Caumng fruit is a simple process and cans are cheap. An j' person of ordinary intelligence can get cans and information at places where they are sold, and with the fruit ready cau earn several dollars per day that generally goes to waste This fruit thus saved keeps indefinitely and can be sold for cash or traded for other necessary supplies. Further, our raerchauts prefer it as it sells bet ter, eats better aud is more satisfactory every way. People who have fruit can easily save it if they will and turn it to a more profitable use than feeding hogs, or allowing to fall oft and rot. Act upon the suggestion and next winter when coming to towu to trade bring along canned fruit to exchange for suzar, coffee, &c. You do not need any fancy labels, people cannot eat labels, but they do love nice south ern grown ripe fruit. Burlington Ntws Morehend City. It is always a delight to spend awhile at Morehead. The attractions are many and varied, the breezes cooling aud refreshing, the salt air exhilarat ing aud invigorating the environments in every way health-giving and pleasure-inspiring. Morehead is by odds .North Caroli na's chief seaside resort. Nowhere is the fishing better, the sailing finer. The surf is unequalled, the beach broad and long. The hotel accomoda tions are unsurpassed, and altogether it is just such a place as suits the re quirements of both the invalid auu pleasure seeker, the old aud the young alike. The Atlantic Hotel of course is the Mecca to which all passengers are bound who visit Morehead. Its accomodations are ample, its manage ment first-class. The originator, arch itect and first stockholder of this vast establishment needs no introduction. The reader as every one else knows him and to say Morehead without Dr. Blacknall would be like Morehead without the Atlantic ocean, would be to state a truism. He has lost none of his snap and knows exactly what to say and do to make every one feel at home. Long may he live to greet his thousands of friends and may it often be our pleasure to meet his cheerful smiles at the Atlantic. The attendance has been very good this season. There are visitors from all parts of North Carolina and many adjoining States, Virginia, Teunessee, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama and elsewhere. During our stay we noticed the preseuce of many promi nent visitors: Gov. Carr, ex-Senator Jarvis and wife, Judge Geo. II. Brown and wife, Col. Julian S. Carr and fam ily, Mr. John II. Winder, General Manager Seaboard Air Line, and wife, Mr. Ashley Home, Mr. D. Y. Cooper, Mr. Pulaski Cowper, Dr. G. W. Blacknall aud wife, and others, inclu ding between 35 and 40 editors, a few of whom were accompanied by their wives or daughters. GOOD FOR OUR SOLDIER BOYS. Annua! Inspection. Col. A. L. Smith, of Charlotte, In spector General of the State Guard, held the annual iuspection of the Vance Guards on the 18th. He was assisted by Major B. S. Royster, of Oxford, Assistant Inspector General. Oar boys were out in full farce and in their neat uniforms, polished accou trements, and soldierly bearing, did both themselves and their officers great credit. Col. Smith expressed himself as thoroughly satisfied with the drill, equipments, aud generally creditable condition and appearance of Capt. Jones' command. We heartily commend the diligence and proficiency in military matters of Capt. Jones, his officers and men, and hope they will not only keep up their present standard of excellence, but continue to improve uutil they are pointed out as the crack company of the State Guard a credit to the county aud sure and reliable preservers of the peace and good order of the commu nity. -4e- The llestilt of a Trial.

You can find a nice line of Brilliants, Dimetvs, Linens, Crepon, and Silks very cheap-at H. THOMASON'S. Keeping Everlastingly at It. Genius is really only the power of making continuous effoits. The line between failure and success is so fine that we scarcely know it when we pass it so flue that we are often on the line and do not know it. How many a man has thrown up his bauds at a time when a little more effort, a little more patience, would have achieved success As the tide goes clear out, so it comes clear in. In business, sometimes, prospects seem darkest when really they are on the turn. A little more persistence, a little more effort, aud what seemed hopeless failure may turu to glorious success. There is no failure except iu uo louger trying. There is no defeat except from within, no really unsurmouutable barrier save our own inherent weakness of purpose. Elec trical News.

The Question of Pensions and th Enormous Amount of Money Paid Out for Such Purposes. Washington, D. C, July 22, 1895. Editor Gold Leaf. I notice in your issue of toe loth vou quote trout an xchange, "The country "h annual pen sion bill may be reduced to 10O,O00,OOO, but it will not be in tbiacentury. Nearly 600,000 applications for pensions are now on nle at ashington i uy ana many new ones are added to the number every week." Having become somewhat familiar with the pension business I ven ture a few remarks on the subject, feeling that while it may be to my personal dis advantage to do so, it is certainly the duty of ever- good citizen to lie out- poken in the denunciation ol fraud wherever found, particularly when it is against the government, especially when so many people think it iamarf to"beat" the government, neare all well aware that the criminal hesitates aud shrinks from the first crime, but each additional act makes him bolder until he believes he has a right to take even the life of his fellow-being. And this is about the way with the pension business in the hands of unscrupulous politicians, pension agents and pensioners. Thirty years ago when the civil war was just over the Lniou soldier that was Batisned with a pension of 2.00, $4.00, $G.OO and f 8.00 per month, according to his disability; he or his family or dependent relatives (if he left any) are now drawing from J6.00 to $72.00 per month, and hun dreds of clerks, attorneys and medical examiners are kept busy reviewing their claims for increase which are repeated iu most cases as often as the law permits them to apolv. which is every six months. A majority ol the clerks in tne pension office are old soldiers drawing both good salaries and big pensions, aud in most cases when an applicant applies for a pension or an increase iney win aumn uim regardless oi wueiuer ne is enuueu to it or not. This state of things has gone on until the old soldiers think the government must give them whatever they demand, even though the balance of the people have to go on nan rations. It was said not long since by a mau oi prominence from one of the Northern States, that if his State were to make an absolute failure in a crop they could get on very well on the jiensiou money alone that was turned loose in that State. From what has come under my own observation I am sure that if the pen sion list was reviewed case by case, by an impartial board of examiners that $00,000,000 would pay every deserving old soldier a good pension, but instead of that I believe if the Republicans get control of the Government again they w ill pass something like a service pension act, and if they do it will take something like $250,000,000 to pay them during the life of this generation.

The Vance Guards met the visitors at the train aud escorted them to their armory where refreshments were served. These consisted ol breads, meats, pickles, and other eatables, lemonade, punch, beer, cigars, &c That the spread was heartily enjoyed was shown by the way the boys " fit" around the festive board, and as the Durhamites departed they gave three cheers for the Vauce Guards. . .

He has our best wishes for his success in his Chosen vocation. . " Success. The world measures a man by his success, li lie suceeeas,ne is au njui iu public estimation, no matter by what means he has attaiued it. The world has not time to look into the methods by which the success has been attained aud whether they be konorable or otherwise. There are some imporant lessons to be learned from this fact: foremost of which is that every man should Btrive for success. Applause follows it. Everybody bows to the winning man. But, important as it is to succeed, suc cess ought to be gained only by hon orable means.
