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
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
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
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.

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

LETTER FROM WASHINGTON.
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
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.
A great many frauds have been shown
