Taking a Needed Rest.
Miss Palmer, the trained nurse who
has been engaged at Mr. I). Y. Cooper's
and Rev. M. H. Tuttle's for several
weeks, went to Littleton Saturday to
spend awhile with her mother and
take a much needed rest before re
turning to Raleitrh. Miss Palmer is an

womanly character, gentle manner,
sympathetic nature and oblisrinjr

"Woodman, spare that tree." Aud
Mr. W. W. Reavis thinks this gentle

Hence his protest against removing
the trees in front of his property on
the corner of Main and Breckinridge
streets. The trees remain and the
sidewalk is being fixed up all the
same. Shade trees ought to be set on
every street in town instead of cut
ting them down.

The new Methodist Protestant

the work has been done with the ex

Ihe stained glass windows are
things of beauty. There are two
large memorial windows which are
works of art. They have been great-

them. The front window bears this
inscription: "In Memory of William
Harris, founder of the first M. P.
church in Henderson." At the top
there is a cross with rope and anchor,
an urn and flowers being below. This
window was put in by the church.

A Conscientious Physician and Typi
cal Southern Gentleman, Born April
29th, 1832; Died June 23rd, 1900.
In the August number of X9icitzk's
Magazine, published at Norfclk, we
find the following article written bv
the editor. Dr. George I. Nowitzky,
which we are sure will be read with
melancholy interest by friends of the
late Dr. Cheatham:
By the death of Dr. W. T. Cheat
ham the city of Henderson, N. C, lost
one of its ablest and most useful citi
zens Vance and other adjoining
counties to which his practice ex
tended, a conscientious and honest
physician, the State of North Car

and inventions to his fellow-practitioners

search of a magnificently endowed
One of his books should never go
out of print, being doubly useful,
containing facts of great value to the
physicians, but so thoroughly qualified
that it is of incalculable benefit to the
He was charitable, without ostenta
tion. Honorable in all his acts. When
called to the bedside of the sufferer,
he knew no difference between the
rich and poor.
As president of his State's Medical
Association his rulings were always
wise and equitable. He had a kind
word for the distressed and encour
agement for the weary.
Dr. Cheatham had repeatedly ex
pressed a hope that when the final
summons came, it would find him in
sufficient health to be engaged in his
professional duties and this wish was
gratified, for the Doctor had just re
turned from visiting a number of
patients and retired to his room for a
little much needed rest, when an
angel of God gently touched him and
bade him appear before the Master he
had served so well.
It is unnecessary to close with the
oft quoted, well-meaning lines, "Rest
in peace." He is resting in peace,
for Heaven was made for just such
men as Dr. W. T. Cheatham.

Editor Clark Jealous of Us.
The Landinark is pained to learn that
on last Saturday night some sneakthief
invaded the premises of Editor Manning,
of the Henderson Golo Leaf, and "stole
six chickens and two large hams." We
are distressed on account of the misfor
tune which has befallen Bro. Manning,
but we are consumed with curiosity to
know how a country editor happened to
have such a great quantity of rations on
hand at one time. It may be that some
of his rich kinsfolk died and left him a
fortune and that he proceeded to celebrate
by providing material for a square meal;
or it maybe that Mr. Manning had be
come infected with the idea of putting on
style and laid in the "six chickens aud
two large hams" just for the "big of the
thing." If the latter is the case he de
served to lose his meat. Statesville Land
mark. We confess to having lost some
chickens. How we got them it were
base impertinence to ask lest the
answer tend to confound us with that
numerous class of patriots whose
wives support them. As for the hams
we did not realize what we had lost
until informed by the Landmark.
Had we known that the thief was
possessed of "two large hams" the
incentive to catch him would have
been greater. We could have used
the meat in our business.
