The bovs went determined to make a good" .showing for Henderson and if they don't bring back some of the prizes it will be due to no lack of honest effort on their part. Kach of the three long articles printed on the lirst page oMhe paper this week will be found of more than average interest. The article on cur ing peavine hay and the one from Secretary Parker, of the North Caro lina Tobacco Growers' Association, are of sx-eial concern to farmers, while that from Nuwitzky's Mnqif.ine, is one of the cleverest, things the genial publisher of that journal has recently written. lioctor Yourself at Home.

In the article last week about the new .Methodist Protestant church a somewhat ludicrous error occurs in reference to one the memorial win dow. The intelligent reader will know of course that it should have been "dedicated"' but the compositor "dictated" otherwise and we over looked it in the proof-sheet. We have heard of the sick man who quarreled with the friend who was praying for him because he didn't dictate that his recovery should be instantaneous and absolute in stead of gradual as the petitioner hail asked, but memorial windows are not erected that way.

Henderson continues to grow aud add to the number of its new enter prises and industries. The formation of two new corpora tions was noted in the Golp Leak last week aud now comes another. Thi last one is that of "The South ern Grocery Company." The incor porators are James A. Kelly, C. J. Burton and John M. Coleman. The object as the name implies is the eon duct of a general w holesale grocery business. The period of incorporation is fifteen years, the capital stock $1.?. 000 paid in with privilege of increas ing to ."0,t00. The otlicers are: James A. Kelly, president; C. J. Burton, vice-president: John M. Coleman, secretary and treasurer. All good business men and the new concern starts out with every assurance of success. . - . Standing Room Only. That's the kind a crowd Al. G. Field's Minstrels played to in Char lotte last week. The Observer says: The opera house was packed to stand ing room last night by the crowd that came to see Al. G. r leld s .Minstrels, and the audience applauded its appreciation of everv number on n long programme. The show surpassed its usual mark of excellence, lhe initial spectacular per formanee, the minstrel feature, the milt tarv pageant, the front porch campaign, the olio, the Mamelukes and all the rest of it were good and attractive. So much mav be said in a general way. There is no necessity of going into details about Al. Field's company, which is known from one end of the country to the other Charlotte approves of his entire outfit and ha can play to a packed house here wnen ne pleases. THE GRADED SCHOOL Starts Upon its Second Year Under Favorable Auspices Good Attend ance at the Opening; of the Fall Ses sion Monday. The Graded School opened Monday under favorable auspices. The en rollment was 277 and a number of pupils have come in since, bringing the number up to something like 300. One more teacher has been added and there has been a slight change in some of the grades. Miss Amy But ler, who has been acting a3 substitute, was elected a regular teacher. Mrs. W. D. Horner was elected as substi tute. The faculty as it stands is as fol lows: First grade, Miss Lemrue Jor dan. Second grade. Miss Charlotte Young. Third grade. Miss Birdie Watson. Fourth grade, Miss Leona Currin. Fifth grade, Miss Amy But ler. Sixth grade, Mrs. Nannie Garden. Seventh grade, M'rss Fannie Alston. Eight h grade. Miss Lila Tucker. Sub stitute, Mrs. W. D. Horner. The work of the eighth grade is divided between Misses Tucker aud Alston, certain classes being taken by the latter. Superintendent Alderman is feeling good over the second year's prospects of the Graded School and when we get our charter and are no longer hampered by lack of funds it will move right along up. By the way, if you have not con tributed to its support in t he mean time you should do so. Cuts and Bruises Quickly Healed. Chamberlain's Puin Bairn applied to a cut, bruise, burn, scald or like injury will instantly allay the pain and will heal the purts in less time than any other treat ment.

Always on hand a fresh lot of Straight and Patent flour at LOWEST PRICKS, at II. THOMASOX'S. Congressional Convention. The Democratic Congressional con vention in Raleigh last week was full of interest owing to the number of strong men before it and the contest was close ami exciting. The bodv wa in session 1A hours including a short recess for supper and 112 bal lots were taken before a nomination was made. The candidates were Con gressman At water, Of Chatham: Capt. W. B. Shaw, of Vance: F. S. Spruill, of Franklin; W. C. Hammer, of Ran dolph; Ed. Chambers Smith, of Ral eigh ; J. T. Kllingtiou, of Johnston. Vance county stood by Capt. Shaw to the last, and he got some support from some of the other counties but not enough to turn the scales in his favor. The name of Kd. V. Poii, of John ston, was sprung upon the conven tion along toward the latter part and he was linally nominated. - . Chamberlain's Cough Remedy a Great Favorite. The soothing and healing properties of this remedy, its pleasant taste and prompt and permanent cures have made it a great favorite with people every where. It is especially prized by mothers of small children for colds, croup and whooping cough, as it always affords quick relief, and as it contains no opium or other harmful drug, it may be given as confidently to a baby as to an adult.

Editor Golp Leaf: I desire to give public expression to mv heart-felt gratitude and thanks to the whole people of v ance county for their zeal- oi". anil unanimous support tending to my nomination for Congress. Es pecially do I thank that noble band of gentlemen, who staid so long in the convention, and so manfully battled against the unfair aud questionable tactics used for my defeat. And I as sure them that defeat after an honor able contest, is to me, far preferable to success obtained by treachery and chicanery', for I would not accept any position secured by other than honor able means. I also extend mv hearty thanks to that large number of friends, who, though of a different political failti from myself, so generously and vol untarily pledged n their support, in the event of mv nomination. I trust the day may yet come when I may be in position to more thoroughly attest mv gratitude to each anil all wtio gave me their sympathy and support. W. B. SHAW. Cured of Chronic Diarrhoea After Thirty Years of Suffering. '1 suffered for thirty years with diar rhoea and thought I was being cured." says John S. Ualloway, of French Camp. Miss. "I had spent so much time and money and suffered so much that I had given up all hopes of recovery . I was so feeble from the effects of the diarrhoea that I could do no kind of labor, could not even travel, but by accident I was permitted to find a bottle of Chamber lain's Colic. Cholera and Diarrhoea Rem edy, and after taking several bottles I am entirely cured of that trouble. I am so pleased with the result that I am anxious that it be in reach of all who suffer as I have." For sale by Melville Dorsey. druggist. . . - Significant? The juxtaposition of these two items in The Witness, edited by Rev. Alexander Sprunt. pastor of Rock Hill, (S. C.,) Presbyterian church, may have no special significance, but we rather think the question Dr. Sprunt asks in the last paragraph is answered bv the statement in the first : The heated term has had an effect on our congregations lately. Absences from town, and the weather have thinned them considerably. Who knows why the weather is always hotter, or cooler, the raia wetter, and the dust greater on Sundays, than any other day of the week.

ENGAGEMENT ANNOUNCED. A yVell Known Henderson Young flan to Wed a Georgia Belle and Beauty. The engagement of Mr. S. P. Cooper, one of Henderson's well known youag men, and a charming and accom plished young lady of Atlanta. Ga., is announced. The bride-to-be is a member of a prominent and aristo cratic family, being a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Howell Cobb Jackson, of Atlanta, and is said to be as lovely in character as she is beautiful in person. The voung iieople met at Morehead City during the past summer and if it was not indeed a case of love at first sight, the acquaintance soon grew to. be such as the sequel shows. lhe wedding is to occur in November. In this connection the following item taken from a late issue of the Atlanta Journal will be read with in terest: Mr. and Mrs. Howell Cobb Jackson announce the engagement of their daughter, Mary Louisa, to Mr. Sidney ferry l.ooper, of Henderson, X. C, the marriage to take place Xoverober 7th, at the First Methodist church. This announcement is of great interest throughout the two States mentioned, and especially iu this city, where Miss Jackson has lived all her life and where her friends and those of her parents and grandparents are numberless. She has a large and prominent family connection through both her father and mother. being a granddaughter of the late Gen eral Henry R. Jackson, of Savannah, and also of Hon. J. W. Reufroe. of this city. Miss Jackson is a beautiful girl and has by right of inheritance artistic gifts as well itB beauty. She graduated in June at Washington Seminary, und was one of the talented members of that class of 1900. She was to have made her for mal debut in Atlanta society this winter. but Cupid and Hymen have united to de cree otherwise, and now instead of the debut party there will be the wedding reception. Atlanta's social world, while smiling cordial congatulations, must needs feel itself defrauded, for, of course, this fair favorite will make her home iu North Carolina. That is the one fault found with the man who has won the promise of her hand. Otherwise Mr. Cooper is declared to be exceedingly pre possessing by ail who have had the pleas ure of meeting him. He belongs to a prominent Xorth Carolina family, and is a young man of large business interests - - - Reduced Rates to Seaside Resorts. lhe Seabonl Air Line Railway will sell special tickets during the summer from Henderson to Old Point.

No Reckless Assertion For sick headache, dyspepsia, malaria, constipation and bilio usness, a million people endorse TUTT'S Liver PILLS THE BEST TRUNKS. High Tribute to the Seward Trunk and Bag Company from a High Authority. It is a pretty big claim to set up for any concern to say that it is the largest of its kind in the world. But it is still better to say that it prod uct is the best in the world. Both of these, claims are made for the Seward Trunk and Bag Company, of Petersburg. Va., and if the "soft impeachment" has been successfully denied we are not aware of it. At any rate it is a mammoth concern and certainly no goods are superior to theirs or stand better with the trade. Mr. L. D. Stainback is their repre sentative in this territory and the number of his customers and the amount of his sales alone attest the correctness of this statement. These remaks are prompted by an artiele recently published in " the Southern Trade Record, of Cincinnati. Ohio, which is self-explanatory and as follows: Quality is one of the strongest founda tions upon which any business cau be built. Competition is so close with man ufacturers tuat the merit alone wius. In no department of manufacturing trade is this true more than in the man ufacture of trunks. He who is a thorough believer in the quality in every respect in material, finish aud workmanship will reap the reward which such attention to business invariably brings. lathe course of investigation our at tention was attracted to the line of trunks manufactured by the Seward Trunk and Bag Company, of Petersburg, Va. This tirin is to be congratulated not only because it has demonstrated its ability in building up a large business, but also because it is placing on the market a line of goods which is second to none. The success with which these goods have been introduced into new fields, and the constantly increasing demand from old subscribers, suggest that building trade upon quality has proved a great success. Absolute confidence iu the prod uct of this firm can always be maintained, and is ever ready to stand by its claims. The goods afford results which pleased and enabled dealers who handle them us well as users, to ' Build Upon Quality." Many complaints have been received from our subscribers in all sections of the country as to the inferior quality of goods in this line now on the market, and we have been asked to recommend a firm who can be relied upon to till all orders placed with them honestly, promptly and reliably. From our obser vation locally we feel justified in recom mending the above firm, advising those of our readers w ho are interested to write t ht'in direct. The investigation was made without the knowledge or consent of tin? firm. Xeitherhns any compensation been of fered us. We have no interest in them or their product, except to recommend the bet and to give credit where credit is due. FIELD'S MERRY MINSTRELS. They Will Hold the Boards at Cooper Opera House Saturday Night. Al. G. Field's Greater Minstrels will make their initial appearance at Cooper Opera House Saturday night. A great crowd ought to greet them for Henderson will have no liner at traction this season. Of their per formance in Newport News last week the Herald say s this: Al. G. Field's merry minstrels were ac corded an ovation last night. Some thing like one thousand people learned for the first time that the west side of a boy's trousers is wherethe sun (son) sets on. That is the way witty Al. Field told it and it brought down the house. He was at his best, and that's suying a good deal. He's the life of the show, and who does not enjoy merry, big hearted Al. Field. He also has a habit of associating with himself, a Crst-class company and the season of 1 900 does not find him broken of that habit. It was a good show; bright, clean and sparkling. Tommy Donnelly's cur-tailed dog, Arthur Rigby's satirical humor and Hoc Quigley, the inimitable, kept theaudienee convulsed. The feature of the first part was the rendering of '"The Holy City. "by Arthur Yule, who possesses a wonderfully sweet baritone voice of great com puss. He was encored repeatedly. Reese Prosser, the old favorite, was in good voice and sang well, "For Love Alone" The droll, political skit, "The Front Porch Campaign." was an exceedingly "warm" and amusing' tiuoleto a niedly of good things. The Moori.ih Mamelukes were easily features of an unusually strong olio. Taken as u whole Mr. Field has u show up to the standard set by that king-pin of minstrelsy, ami though in its infancy, the season of 100O is already roseate with success. It's all new save Al. Field, und like good wine he improves with age. The rich costuming and hiindvome set ting of the first-parr, "A Trip to the Paris Exposition,' is a credit to tin brain of its originator.

Raleigh's popular new hotel, the Carrollton, has changed hands. Nor does it suffer by the change for it has fallen into most capable hands. Mr. Charles T. Bennett. late of the Orton Hotel, Wilmington, is the new proprietor. He is an experienced caterer and popular man and under his management the Carrollton will become a favorite with commercial men and the traveling public. Mr. Bennett is a native of North ampton county having been born and reared near Garysburg, and well and favorably known to many of the Gold Leaf's readers. Referring to the change of management by which Mr. Bennett succeeds Mr. W. M. Jordan as proprietor the Raleigh Post 6ays: Mr. Bennett has leased this splendid hotel property for a term of years, and will have the apartments from garret to basement thoroughly renovated and put inelegant condition. Mr; Bennett is a hotelist of exteusiveexperienceand great popularity among the traveling public, and those familiar with his ability as a hotelist can but confidently expect the attainment of a large degree of success for the Carrollton under his manage ment.
