BURGLARS CAPTURED. Policeman flahone Does A Good Piece of Detectiv e Work and Successfully Runs Down Bold Fair of Criminals. About the best piece of detective work former Chief of Police J. H. Mahone has done lately was the cap ture last week of a couple of crooks who broke into Walter J. Powell's jewelry store and stole therefrom a lot of watches and other things Tues day night. As soon as the burglary was discovered Chief Ousby and Policeman Mahone went to work to find a clue. Ascertaining that a white man and nero, who had the appearance of being tramps, had been selling plug tobacco about town the day before, suspicion fell on them, the officers surmising that they had broken into a store somewhere else and it was stolen tobacco they were selling:. The telephone lines were brought into use and Mr. Mahone learned that two men answering the description given had passed Middleburg that morning. He procured a team and in company with Mr. W. W. Swain put out in hot pursuit. To tell the story in few words the burglars were cap tured in a piece of woods below Man son and brought back to Henderson that night. They were loaded down with watches, rings and other things of small value, most of the things stolen from Mr. Powell being recover ed. He thinks they got about 25 watches in all ami he got all back but two or three. It was a good piece of detective work for Mr. Mahone and a lucky thing for Mr. Powell. The men were escaped convicts from the Wake county work house, the white man being in for 3 years and the negro for 5. both for larceny. Each one had served about half of his tima when they made their escape two weeks before. An officer came from Raleigh 'Thursday and took thum back. . .

If the man who causes two blades of grass to grow where only one grew before does a commendable thing. what is to be said of the man who starts a brick yard in a live and grow ing town thereby causing many houses to jo up where none were be fore? Well, that is what Rev. J. T. B. Hoover is doing, and if he is not a public benefactor he proposes to be come a potent factor in the building up of . Henderson. He ha procured land ind started a brick yard on the Western edge of town and hopes sooa to be "in position to fill all local as well as outside demands. The clay is of superior quality and a strictly lirst-class article of brick will be made. A much needed enterprise and one the Gold Leaf is glad to note the inauguration of. Mr. Hoover tells us that experts bar snoken so favorably of the qual ity of the clay he it working that he is contemplating engaging in the manufacture of tiling. If the clay it suitable the Gold Lfaf sett no reason why terra cotta works would not prove a profitable industry here as elsewhere. DRILLED WELLS. Problem of a Plentiful Supply of Pure Drinking Water to be Solved in (his Way. Perhaps nowhere wells are used is better drinking water to be found as a rule than in Henderson. And with the complete and expensive filtering plant in operation same may be said of the "city water" supplied by the Henderson Water Co. But public street wells subject to contamination by surface drainage art objectionable at best. And hydrant water is not altogether satisfactory for drinking purposes in summer' time, even if available to all consumers. In view of all these facts the muni cipal authorities have contracted with the Sydnor Pump and Well Company, of Richmond, Va., to drill a well near the stone that marks the center of the town on the East corner of Main and Montgomery streets, opposite the Seaboard Air Line passenger sta tion. Work was begun Monday morn ing. The drill was put into the ground at a quarter to eleven o'clock. At 6 o'clock that afternoon when they quit work they were down 50 feet, going through nothing but earth. At 50 feet soft rock was en countered. The drill pecked away all day Tuesday at a diminished rate of descent" and'had made but 17 feet when work stopped. Yesterday they cut down 15 feet reaching a total depth of 82 feet. 59 feet of b inch galvanized iron pipe have been driven down, 9 feet of it into the rock. At 80 feet they began to strike softer rock. As the shaft sunk deeper it became more porous. At 82 feet what appeared to be a bed of fine gravel was reached. The How of water was a little over six gallons a minute, and as this was sufficient the work was stopped. The possibility of surface water entering the well is precluded and the porous rock and gravel formation at the bottom serving as a filter the water must be absolutely pure and wholesome. It is very cold and we should judge it to be palatable. The work is in charge of Mr. G. A. Osborne, an expert in that line and withal an intelligent, agreeable gen tleman who patiently and good naturedly answers all questions and gives any information desired by his numerous helpers (?) who occupy front positions in the idlers' line. Mr. Osborne moves his machinery today to Mr. Geo. A. Rose's for whom he will drill a well. It is probable the town will have others dug while a number of private individuals con template doing so. .

Macon to arrange for encampment of the State Guard, will meet with the Governor Saturday and report the re sults of their investigation. Col. Macon sa-s "things are going our way right now." The principal diffi culty in the way was a specially low rate of transportation. Col. Macon took up the matter with the General Passenger Agents of the North Caro lina railroads. As a result of such correspondence he received an invi tation from Mr. W. H. Fitzgerald, Commissioner of the Associated Rail ways, to be present at a meeting of the General Passenger Agents of the Atlantic Coast Line, Seaboard Air Line and Southern Railway to be held in his office in Richmond Tues day for the purpose of making rates. This being an important meeting to the State Guard and upon the result j of which depended the possibility of having an encampment, Col. Macon attended. He said he did not go to make a speech to the Association but to have them make figures instead. If satisfactory transportation ar arrangements are made it is reason ably certain that the encampment will be held in the Lattimer Grove at Wrightsville. This place has been offered the committee. .

He came home from the field, ate supper and retired as usual, not having complained of be ing sick nor feeling unwell. Near 4 o'clock in the morning he awoke his wife bv appearing as if he had a chill on him. She called him but he did answer, and died in a short while afterward. Deceased wa3 born July, 10, 18?o, and would have been 76 year old in a few weeks. He had been a hard work ing man all his life, a kind father and good neighbor. He was twice married seven children being born to him by his first marriage and three by the ennd. all livinfr. Beside his wife and children he leaves a large number of friends and acquaintances to mourn 1 i nis 1099.

CASTOR I A For Infants and Children. The Kind Yoo Have Always Bought Boars the Signature of PROMINENT PERSONAGES. Item from an English Paper Which is of Local Interest to Many of Our Readers. From a late issue of the Manchester (England) Post the following article, which is of local interest to many of the Gold Leaf's readers, is taken. The Rev. Dr. F. J. Chavasse, Lord BULup of Liverpool, and the late Mr. Charles Chavasse, mentioned in the article, are brothers of our estimable townsman Mr. Nicholas H. Chavasse. Under the heading of "Bishop Chavasse at Sutton Cold field," the Post says: The Lord Bishop of Liverpool (Dr. F. J. Chavasse) visited Sutton Coldtield yes terday for the purpose of unveiling aud dedicating u window which has been in serted in Holy Trinity church to the memory of his brother, Mr. Charles Chavasse. The dedication service was held in the evening, and was attended by a good congregation, the clergy pres ent being the Revs. W. ('. R. Bedford (vicar), R, A. Morley, II . Gee Clarke (curates), and A. T. Kirkpatrick, (of Maney). The window unveiled by Bishop Chavasse is inserted in the Southwest corner of thechurch, and the two divisions contain representations of our Lord as the "Good Shepherd" and ''The Light of the World." Underneath are the passages from St. John which have inspired these portraits of Christ, and a general inscrip tion ruus, "To the glory of God and in loving memory of Charles Edward Chavasse: born November .1, 1810; died August 4, 189.'L Erected by his widow and children." Messrs. Heaton, Butler, and Bnyno (London) are responsible for the window, which is distinctly an ac quisition to the church. Preaching from the first two verses of the 15th Psalm, the Bishop of Liverpool said it was no easy mutter for him to speak on that occasion in that church to that assembly. It was difficult for a brother to dwell on a brother whose memory was still un speakably dear, difficult to speak in a church associated with some of the happiest memories of his childhood, in which they were both confirmed, difficult to speak to those who knew them both as boys; but when he remembered that his duty that uight was not to exalt the dead, but to honourthefJod of theliving, and to seek by God's help to draw from the history of the fiast some few lessons which might help them to serve Him the better iu the present and the future, when he remen bered that they were there to thank God for the blessed dead, his task was made somewhat easier. There were four traits in his brother's character, continued the bishop, which had burned themselves into the memories of all those who knew him from childhood. There was first his absolute truthfulness. He scorned to tell a lie, and was a mau to whom all shiftiness and evasiveness aud deeeitfulness, all the tricks of trade, and all the tricky means which men use to over-reach one another were absolute ly hateful. The second trait was his thoroughness. He possessed in a great degree the capacity for taking infinite pains, and no hurried work, if he could help it, ever left his hands. The third trait was his kindess of heart. A boy whose greatest delights was to spend his time with birds and animals, he grew up with a heart open to every claim of real need. He (the Bishop) would add yet a fourth trait his unfailing unselfishness and modesty. There were some who re membered how betook office in connec tion with Hoiy Trinity Church, and how thoroughly he threw himself into the work, but when his year of office expired he did not deem himself good enough to continue in it. He was not a man who talked much about religion; the name of God was not much on his lips, but the fear of God was before his eyes. And so the window which had just been unveiled would, the Bishop ventured to think, exactly meet his own wishes. He, him self, as it were, hidden, but his Master whom he served, was held up before the eyes of the congregation and the church. - - . . . . Saves Two from Death.

There is nothing in life half so winsome and bright as the baby, nothing that opens the heart half so wide as the cherub face with its trustful eyes, the dimpled arms clinging in loving caress, the soft prattling voice, the smiles, the tears. Aud so when, on Sunday morning, the message was brought us the baby is dead" our hearts reached out in tenderest sympathy for the bereaved ones the mother, the father, the aged grand parents. For days we had watched beside tne patient little sufferer and we seemed to hear the angels whisper "liittle spirit. come away. At last tne darK, wisttui eyes gave back no answering look, the breath was stilled, the heart s taint nut terings ceased and the baby was gone. As the white-robed little lorm paler and morebealtiful than the white flowers about it. lay in its snowy casket we saw not the tenement but the babe in celestial beauty, as it rested, after earth's pain and weariness, on the bosom of Infinite Love. "Fold her, O Father, in thine arms, And let her henceforth be A messenger of love between Our human hearts and Thee." The funeral was held at the residence. all the pastors in town taking part in the touching and solemn service. Many and lovelv flowers attested the sympathy of friends. The interment was at Elmwood cemetery. M. P. THIS WILL INTEREST MANY. To quickly introduce B. B. B.

The announcement Monday after noon of the death of Rev. G. N. Bray, was no less surprising than it wis painful to his friends. It was known that he was not a well man but not many persons knew that a fatal malady wat preying upon a naturally frail constitution. Mr. Bray died about 2 o'clock Mon day afternoon at Chase Citv. Va., where he had gone the Tuesday be fore iu hopes of being beuefited bv drinking the water. He had Bright's disease and a previous visit there some weeks ago had apparently help ed him very much. But he was anxious to fill his appointments to preach at his churcbet in the country, some of which he had not been able to meet of late on account of sickness, and his stay was shortened on this account. Then too, he was making ready to come back to Henderson to live since the clote of his school at Cokes. He had rented a house here and moved his effects in only the day before he went to Chase City. It is all very sad, but such are the un certainties of life. G. Needham Bray was about 31 years of age. He was born in Camden county, near Shiloh, and came of sturdy, honorable ancestry. He was himself a man of sterling "worth and character and gave promise of a use ful and bright career. He worked his way through college going from there to the Seminary to take a theological course. A few years ago he came to Henderson and took the pastorate of one or two country churches. Since then his field has enlarged and his sphere of usefulness increased. Other fields were added to his work. In addition to supplying these churches Mr. Bray has been conducting a flourishing school at Cokes, the summer term of which had but re cently closed. About two years ago Mr. Bray was elected county superintendent of public schools. And no county ever had a more faithful, earnest one. He was zealous in the cause of education, always alive to the needs of the schools and au acthe. tireless worker for their betterment. Having been a teacher himself he readily brought himself in close touch with the work. On the second of last October Mr. Bray was married to Miss Bettie Whitfield, of Kinston, who survivet him. She was with him when he died. The body was brought to Hen derson on the evening train Monday and the funeral was held from the Baptist church at 5 o'clock Tuesday afternoon. Dr. Hufham conducted the service, his remarks being most impressive and appropriate to the oc casion. The church was thronged and man' eyes were dimmed with tears during the solemn service. Mr. Bray was a Mason and an Odd Fellow, having been chaplain of the latter, and was buried with the honors of both these Orders, they turning out in a body clothed with the regalia of their respective lodges. The pall-bearers were three Masons and three Odd Fellows: Masonic Maj. W. E. Gary. J. B. Owen, L. W. Barnes. Odd Fellows J. A. Kelly, Andrew Buford, Thad R. Manning. The ceremonies at the grave were singularly impressive. First the Masons took charge. Prof. J. T. Alder man, Master, and Rev. M. H. Tuttle, chaplain, officiating. Then the Odd Fellows, Capt. W. B. Shaw (who was marshal), being called on to act in place of W. K. Sturges, Noble Grand, who was suddenly called away, and Rev. J. S. Williams, chaplain, officiat ing. These ceremonies at an end the grave was filled, the floral offerings plaeed on the new made mound and the body of our deceased brother was left reposing in the earth from whence it came, his soul in the presence of the God who made it. . . . .
