Do not forget the dates. Says an exchenge: Profanit is a relic of barbarism ami an evidence of a low state of living. It is repulsive and a gross insult to decency. It places men in the low est society and robs them of all self-respect. There was a sudden change hi the weather Monday night, from warm to cool, then to wind and rain, followed by stiow. Tuesday morning the ground was covered and for a lew hours the lleecy Makes fell thick and fast. Persons who wish to rent or pur chase the lueen Anne cottage on Cba vasse avenue, lately occupied by Mr. H . l. Henry and family will nicate with him at Charlotte, a very des.rab'e residence, in neighborhood . commu This is Mr. 1). A.

Morton, of Staunton, Va., e;t yesterday after spending a few days :t!i his brother Rev. Dr. Morton in Henderson. Col. Morton is general agent of the Old Dominion Building and Loan Association, and is also prom inently identified with the work of or ganizing camps of Confederate Veter ans, being Adjutant General of that ''I'ganizatioti. The time for ollice filling is coming on. First we will have the muni cipal election and then iu the fall will come the county. State aud National elections. The Gold Leaf wauts to say thus early if you dou't like a can didate, don't vote for him, aud let it go at that. Don't go around abusiug aud villifying him. That sort of war fare is no longer respectable, even in politics. We are requested by the mother arid wife of the late W. II. Edwards to ex press their thanks for the many acts of kindness shown by their neighbors and others during his sickness and at the time of his death. Mr. Edwards him self was deeply sensible of the kind and sympathetic attentions of his friends and it was his wish that his grateful appreciation thereof should be made known in this public manner. Let the young man about town, out of a job, try a year on the farm. Plow ing a mule will give him a new consti tution, take the kinks out of his head, the fro;: out of his throat, the gas off his stomach, the corns off his toes, and gi- e him a good appetite, an honest living and a sight of heaven.

Enquirer, The ques tion uaturailyarises: u0 those already on the farm find the above applies in their case'- i Our venerable and esteemed friend Mr. Richard Marstou is being congrat ulated by his friends upon a distinction that falls to the lot of but few men. A daughter born to Mr. and Mrs. Piatt Johnson represents the fourth genera tion living in his family and he is not an old man either. And it can be said of the little lady that not many children can lay claim to what she has two great-grand parents living a great grand father on her mother's side and a great-grand mother on her father's.

Prince calls our attention to a matter of which we were not in formed and which we take pleasure in correcting for the benefit of the public. It is the law in regard to putting a strip of plank at the top of wire fences along public roads. This act, passed by the last Legislature, applies to cer tain counties only and Vauce is not af fected by it. We saw some reference to it in on of our exchanges and thinking the law was general a note was made of it. Mr. Prince has looked the matter up and linds that Vance county is not included within the pro visions of the wire fence act. Plant bed doth, guaranteed. all grades. Price DAVIS & ROSE.

The revival meeting at the Baptist church grows in interest. More than thirty persons have made a profession of religion up to the present train. It has been decided to hold the meetings iu the Methodist Episcopal church (it being larger) and the services will be a union of the various deuominati jus of the town. Mr. Edmoudson has tele graphed for his former assistant Mr. Williams who will lead the singing. The choir will be made up from the different congregations and the best singers of the town, iind the song ser vice will be a jteature of the meetings. . I). W.

Acclimated Sweet Corn. Mr. M. B. Prince showed us a Tew days ago samples of acclimated sugar (or roasting ear) corn grown by him. The ears are good size and fully ma tured, the grains tirm. and thick set and altogetheritappears lobe much superior to the Northern grown variety. Mr. Prince has been growing this continually for 7 or 8 years, each season selecting the best ears for planting purposes, until he has brought it to ils present stage of perfection. He tells us this corn matures a belter and fuller ear, is less liable to ravages from worms and bugs and is superior in every way to that bought from year to year out of the stacks of foreign' grown seed. Mr. Prince has sold a quantity of this corn to M. Dorsey and those who wish to get someof it to plant can be supplied if they will call early. - - - .

If a bigger fake in the way of a snow has hit Henderson than the one that pitched its tents here, yesterday, we failed to take it in or be taken in" by it. The balloon ascension is the only feature connected with it ihat can be commended. The performance inside the tent amocnts to nothing. Indeed, from all accounts, it is a regular swind ling concern. Several persons com plained of having been robbed at the show. But if the truth were kuowu, they got the worst of some game of chance or other gambling device, and then kicked The man who goes up against anoth er man's game with the odds so much against him, is but illustrating the truth of the saying that, a fool aud his money soon parts. We have no sympathy to waste on those who lost their money yesterday. They will know better uext time per haps. Black Vesper's Pageants. So speaks Shakespeare of tlu;e d.irk sombre clouds that we often see towards night they foretell a storm. Just as surely do functional irregularities and "female derangements" foretell a life of suffering or an early grave. He warned by these symptoms. Thousands of once afflicied women have driven away diseases and death, by taking iu time Dr. Pierce's Fa vorite Prescription. Send for the doctor's large treatise, (ltS pages) on diseases of women.

An interesting sight was witnessed in Henderson yestepJay. It was a bal loon ascension, something seen by ma iy pesous for the first time. A trr veiling show visited the town and this was one ot the attractions ad vertised. A large crowd gathered at the place where theballoon was to start from and about half "past" three o'clock the work of inflating it was completed and the cy of "let her go" was given. Up " it shot like a thing of life and gracefully ascene'ed in an almost direct line overhead. Oj it went until an altitude of several hun dred feet was reached when it drifted gradually toward the North going higher aud higher all the while. When the balloon was something like half a mile high the youug man on the trapeze bar cut loose the parachute. He made a drop toward the earth some distance when its folds gradually opeuedand gathering the wind the de scent was made slowly downward until the ground was reached iu safety. A landing was made near J. P. Tay lor & Co's factory, about a quarter of a mile from the starting point, the dar ing aerial navigator having made a voyage of something like three thousand yards in the circuit. It was a success ful occasion iu every particular and presented a pretty and thrilling sight. The young aeronaut is a Norfolk boy, known as Char-ley Raymond, this being his professional name.

As engine No. 540 sped over the Seaboard Air Line road to-day it left a smaller stream of smoke behind it than an engine ever run in this State. No. 540 was equipped with a smoke con suming aud fuel saving arrangement which, according to the claims of its inventor, destroys 90 per cent ofsmoke and saves a remarkable amount of fuel. The invention has been accepted and adopted by all the great railway sys tems of the North and the Seaboard is the first Southern railroad to experi ment with it. The inventor is Mr. A. F. Kingsley, of Washington, 1). C. It fits on an engine near the stack aud is not observed unless by an engineer or expert, liy Mr. Kingsley's arrange ment, the escaping gas and smoke which ordinarily flows from au engine is saved and converted iuto steam Then the smoke from coal, which is very objectionable is done away will). In utilizing the gas in smoke which or dinarily escapes, a great per cent, of fuel is saved. The Seaboard Air Line is making au experiment with the fuel saver. The test is being made under the direction of Mr. William Harding. He has tried the engine without the fuel savers and is now trying one with it. The test, if satisfactory, will result iu the equip ment of all the Seaboard Air Line en gines with the new device. Charlotte Kew.s. The man who eats because he is hungry is thus far, on a level with the brutes. The man who stops eating the moment his hun ger is appeased is the wise man. Xature needs no more food than she calls for. Continued excess brings about indigestion or dyspepsia, with oss of llesh, strength, sleep, ambition and taental power, and an accumulation of aches, pains, and many dangerous local maladies. The stomach now can do nothing alone. We must appeal to some artificially digested food which can also digest other foods. That is to say, we must use the .Shaker Digestive Cordial. The effect is prompt and cheering. The chronic pain and distress ceases. Ap petite ptesently revives. Flesh and vigor gradually come hack, and the sufferer recov ers. But he must be careful in future. A trial bottle for K cents. Laxol is the best medicine for children. Doctors recommend it in place of Castor Oil. a -0. .

Church, South, Wilmington, the church which I now rve, is badly em barrassed with a debt brought on it by the fraud and deceptive practices of one of its former and much trusted members. Much of this debt has been removed but $15,000 of it remains and is the cause of great distress and anxiety to its mem bers and friends. Earnest efforts to les sen and finally remove this great encum brance are being made. Among other efforts we are sending cards soliciting the contribution of one dollar from each of the persons to whom they go. Some of these were sent to Henderson and I write to express my hearty appreciation, and that of the people whom I serve, to those in Henderson and to those elsewhere as well, who may see these lines, who did, and who may so kindly respond to our appeal to aid a struggling cause, and did they but know the true situation they would be glad that they had helped an object so worthy.

The Almighty Dollar. f Orange Observer. 1 What a despot, what a tyrant, what an idol. People are swayed by it, ru ined by it, and are made to bow down to it and fondest and most willing wor ship. It makes people mean and corrupt aud dishonest. It makes them cheat aud lie aud swiudle and steal and rob and murder. It destroys the uoblest impulses of the human heart, aud plants iu their place the noxious weeds of that deadly avarice that eudangeis the soul and threatens it with everlast ing ruin and destruction. It turns sister against brother, father against sou, wife against husband. It sows weeds of discord and briars of es trangement where flowers of concord and kindest feelings .once bloomed iu richest luxuriance and sweetest beauty. Aud yet with all of its power and all of its influence it cannot bring peace to the mind and a solace to the bosom; aud neither can it purchase the blessed hope of blissful immortality. When death comes and the grave opens its sodded arms to receive into its pulseless embrace the lifeless form, then its power is all goue, and its mem ory becomes a curse to those who once had been its worshippers. It will be a curse for its false glitter aud useless value have so ruined the heart that it will shut out those richer and grander and subliioer scenes which will burst upon the enraptured vision of those who have purchased by faith and obe dience a birth-right to the fadeless crown of eternal glory so gloriously aud so radiantly studded with jewels of ev erlasting peace and rest.

There are facts which prove the theory true. All men who advertise are not success ful, but, with rareexceptions, ail success ful men have been advertisers. Advertising is the greatest of all mod ern engines for facilitating business. Be side it the telegraph, the telephone, the locomotive and a steamboat are dwarfed. If it were not for advertising, these would not boused. Business would not be of sufficient volume to justify their employment. The man in Chicago advertises, and the man in St. Paul buys by telegraph, perhaps and has his purchase delivered by the locomotive. But the advertising came "first. It always does. It conveys informuticn, and an invita tion tabuy at the same time. And advertisement in a paper like The Gold Leaf, places this informa tion before thousands of buyers, either present or prospective. Count the cost of a suitable advertisement against the possible number of those who will need some spwial thing on any day. The chauces will always be found on the side of the profitability of the advertisement. Nine times in ten a good ad. will bring more than enough direct profit to pay for itself, leaving its great cumulative value clear gain. Half the time a good ad. will pay an actual direct profit, but to do this, it must be carefully tended. Treat the newspaper fairly, and it will pay every time. "With step as noiseless as the summer air Who conies in beautiful decay? Her eyes Dissolving with a feverish glow of light, and on Her cheek a rosy tint, as if the tip Of beauty's finger faintly pressed it there! Alas! Consumption in her name." This terrible disease which has num bered its victims by millions, conies in the most insidious way. Gettinu one's feet wet; a slight cold, a cough, and then other indiscretions until itgets a firm hold. Why fall a victim when a cure is within reach? Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Dis covery will effectually cure consumption in its earlier stages. For weak lungs, spitting of blood, Asthma, lingering coughs and kindred ailments, it is a sover eign remedy. Save Your Money.
