THE HENDERSON GOLD LEAP- THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 26, 1003.
The Gold Leaf. ESTABLISHED 1881. BY THAD R. MANNING. THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 1903 Dr. Bassett Iiad the good taste to resign, but Judge Peebles will con tinue to draw his (Peebles') pay. Let us this day give thanks for the manifold blessings which we enjoy. And above all let us not forget the orphan cause and the poor whorn we have with us always. Du. Bassett doubtless had his "eye on the main chance" a posi tion in some Northern or Western college lefore he wrote that objec tionable and offensive article on the negro question. The Rev. Dr. T. F. Marr, of Char lotte, thinks the resignation of Dr. Basset t at this time would be a severe blow to Trinity College. Dr. Marr evidently thinks Dr. Bassett a bigger man than Trinity College. But in this opinion he will find as few to agree with him as Dr. Bassett did in his absurd and offensive article on the negro question. Dr. Marr may be honest in his convictions but lie errs. The passing of Bassett will be infinitely for Trinity's good. The passing of Bassett does not so much as leave a ripple upon the sur face. We may as well confess it, for we have a sneaking feeling of satisfac tion at the result of the election in Salisbury. Next time let the men go to the polls and work, and let the women stay at home and prepare dinner, and do other things in ac cordance with the design of Him who created them, and the cause of tem perance may have better luck. Ral eigh Times. The election in Salisbury above re ferred towns on the dispensary ques tion. Women attended the polling places we are told and took the place of the men folks in working for the dispensary. The "wets'' won. Du. Bassett has something to his credit after all. He had the good sense to resign. Of Prof. course the talk about running Bastett out of the State is twaddle, and nobody with real gooc 1 sense navs anv attention to sue emit, homo people are sillv bv na ture and cannot help saving and do ing silly things. But Mr. Bassett ought to change his business. Char ity ana Ihudren. And this Mr. Bassett has had the good sense to do at. least change positions. No one had the right to say that Dr. Bassett should be forced to resign, or that he ought to be driven from the State, but they die have a right to say that no son o theirs should be sent to Trinity Co lrvy. -. - L -1 l-:- - -1 it.. intra ui the race question. Ami herein i where Trinity College would hav suffered had Dr. Bassett remained member of the faculty. WAIT AND SEE. If the papers that do not admire Jutle leeuies nave tlienlit to scratch him : he is nominated, whv lias not any othe man the right to scratch the ticket for nny reason that he deems sufficient? IHirham llrrnlii. Y ait until he is nominated. Then it will be time to discuss that ques tion. If Judge Peebles is renominated by the Democrats he will be re-electet; unless the Democrats have broken away from their past customs by that time. iInungton'Je.s.sei-er. ait and see. In the first place we do not believe Judge Peebles will be nominated. If he should be his elec tion would be doubtful if he had anv sort of opposition. Time was whei Democrats voted without reserye for the party nominee. That was when the negro was more of a political fac tor than he is now. That day, hap pily, has passed. The situation is different now. It is no longer a ques tion of the white man against the negro and a blind partisan submis Bionto and acquiescence in the action of the nominating conventions, re gardless of whom they put up to be voted for. The voters are going to have more to say about the men they vote for hereafter. Do not forget that, please, call it independence, dis loyalty or party treachery as you may. Doesn't Respect Old Age. It shameful when youth fails to show rrojHr respect for old nge, but just the con trary in the ease of Dr. King's New Life Tills They cut off maladies, no matter how severe and irrespective of old npe. Dyspepsia, Jaun dice, lever, Constipation, all yield to this perfect pill. 25c at Melville Dorsey's Drug otore.

One way to be happy, says tbeGas tonia Xews, is for every man to take his home paper. And he should not only take it, but pay for it as well which some people do not do. Don't borrow it from your neighbor, but subscribe for it in your own name and pay the price like an honest man and loyal citizen. Don't play the dead-beat either on your neighbor or the publisher. The latter can stand it, but your neighbor does not want to be bothered that way about so small a matter. And yet he dis likes to refuse. Some neople do not stop to think how much they owe the local paper. When you want a favor to whom do you go? Is it to the big city daily? No, the city paper don't know you; but the editor of your local paper does; and if he don't know you, call to see him the next time you go to town, or go up and speak to him, for he will be glad to see you and form your acquaintance. If you don't take his paper subscribe for it. If you have an item of news give it to him, or write to him and tell about it. He is the man who tells of your success in life, and does you many little favors. If you do not h rip to support his enterprise you are not treating him right. He will treat you right. Be on his side. You don't know when you will need his help. Not only stand by his newspaper, but stand by every legitimate enter prise in your county as much as you possibly can.

The death of young Joseph P Caldwell, Jr., son of Editor Caldwell, of the Charlotte Observer, by his own hand, is referred to in the editorial columns of the Charlotte Evening News in the following touching and pathetic words: To say that this whole community sympathizes with Mr. J. P. Caldwell in the great sorrow that lias come to him and his family is to put the mat ter in feeble phrase. The whole read ing purlic of Nort h Carolina feels with ir -ir i- .1 -i .i i. i mm anu ior mm in mo oeaui or ins first-born son, his namesake. And we only wish thatwecould find word to assure him of this profound and universal feeling of sympathy, that really shares his grief. It was said, in one of Ian McLaren s books, on the death of a young lad, popular and well beloved, "There's but one heart in Drumtochty, and it's sair. There is but one heart in Charlotte this day, and it's sore. And 3'et there are some of us who can enter into the inner chamber of that grief,who have also seen a child, born of our body, flesh of our flesh, lying still in the last sleep. Through the ages there rings the cry of pa ternal jipiwi.v. "w nniuou tnati naa died for thee, (), Absalom, my son, mv son." IJeside the quiet dignity of death. the issues of life fade into insignifi cance, the contentions of politics or oi business, tlie stnte of tongues Human speech is poor and inade quate in conveying the messages of hope and of comfort we would fain express. The familiar words of IIolv Writ are best, I't not vour heart be troubled tor the love of God is broader thiiii the mejiHiire of man m mini. And tliehenrt of the Eternal is most wonder fully kind."

The remedy is Vinol, and we have heard such wonderful results from it that we advise every person in Hen derson who is suffering from a cold or cough to try it on his guarantee. A hard cold and hacking cough may be the means of undermining your constitu tion and terminate in 'consumption.

Vinol is delicious to take nml eontnina all the active curative principles of cod liver oil in a highly concentrated form, and it is, therefore, the greatest specific known for coughs, colds, and bronchial troubles.

November 2Gth, 1903, ! has been designated b the President i of theUnited States and by the Gov-j ernor of North Carolina to be ob- served by the people as a day of de- vout thankfulness to our Heavenly Father for His many blessings to- ward us during past the year. lhere - fore, the Tar Heel, representing a constituency that have been blessed in ,;basket a.id in store, joins in the recommendation that the day above mentioned be observed as a nouuin ; of devout praise and thanksgiving, and this institution, that has been wonderfully blessed in its early exist ence, begs for an humble seat in the synagogue of the thankful, that it may return its devout thanks for the watchful Providence that has blessed its work. It becometh us, as a Christian peo ple, ' who acknowledge the rule of divine Providence, and see His hand in all the devious ways of men, to humble ourselves before His throne and invoke his kind Providence over us in the future and give thanks for the many blessings He has bestowed upon us. Ingratitude is said to lie the basest of Crimes. He is a miserable churl who receives a favor from human hands and does not deign to acknowl edge it. What designation is infa mous enough to describe h:m who re ceives at the hands of the Great Cre ator and Ruler of heaven and earth, human life with its manifold bless ings, and does not prostrate himself in humble adoration before that Di vine Power? It is not only the depth of folly it is blasphemy, atheism, recklessness, base ingratitude. And does not God rule? And has He not blessed us all? He that doubts the rule of God is a madman or a fool. He that doubts the blessing of God to those who love and serve Him and to all men, except those He li;'sgiven over to the devil, is an idiot or one who runs without reading. He has blessed us, wonderfully, kindly, as a people and as individuals, anil he is a wise and a good man that knows it. He who 'Tides upon the whirlwind and directs the storm" has passed us by unharmed. No tornadoes have swept us with their desolating fury. No great convulsions of nature have spread desolation and panic among us. The pestilence that walketh in darkness has not disturbed our hap piness, iv ars nave not come near us Plenty has cast famine far from us Success and prosperity have shed their benign influence over our com munities. We are an enterprising, happv and well-to-do people. As in dividuals, while some may tlrinkthey are deserted of God, their afflictions, if examined carefully, will be proven to be the fruits of their own iollv and their affliction mavbe the heroic remedy in God's Providence, to bring about his restoration to health, in stead of sending him to the devil's sanitarium to be cured by fire. So, let us be thankful for all God's blessings, -Let us look to Him for care and guidance in all our steps Let us hew to the line of all His pre cepts, and let us, as a people and as individuals, be law-abiding before God and man. HOW WE CATCH A COLD. A eold is sometimes contracted while re maining inactive for awhile in an uncomfort able room or a cold ilrnff niwl lv Jer sleep under like conditions. But most colds are caught while sleeping too cold nt night. Deep sleep causes sluggish circulation which renders the system suseeptable to change of temperature. To prevent colds, sleep under plenty of cover. To cure colds useltydales I'.lixir, it lessens the severity and shortens the duration of a cold ami prevents Pneu monia, bronchitis and consumption.

CalJwtll, Jr., While Suffer- inz From Depression Take His Own Life by Shooting rllms:5f With R-volvcr. j ; Charlotte Observer, 10th. j j p Caldwell, Jr., the 19-year-old , son of Mr j p Caldwell, editor of jtJu, observer, committed suicide bv ; shooting himself through the left ; breast with a revolver, last evening j at 0 0vi0ck. j No vauge f"or th1 act u .uowlK Re C(.ntv til, Vriinir man has been de- pressed, and as far back as six weeks ; ap:o he had said that he intended to rawen senousn , nor uia ue seem to intend that they should be taken se riously. Yesterday afternoon lie was up town until 5:30 o'clock, when he start ed home. On his way homeward he met a friend to whom lie bade rood bye, saying' that he purposed tocom rnit suicide. There was -eornethingiu his manner that caused alarm, and before he was allowed to pro-eed fur ther a member of Mr. Caldwell's fam ily was sent for and told of what had been said. Though it was not im agined that the young man's state ment was based on any fixed purpose, a kindly effort was made to change his frame of mind, and he walked to his home, on South Try-on str.t-t, with his relative, a sister. Without further discussion of his purpose the boy walked through the hallway, where his sisters were, and went to his room, which is on the second floor in the rear part of the residence. He closed the door. A second later a pistol shot was fired. A sister, who hurriedly ran to the room, found it in darkness. She made a light, and found her brother lying on his back on his bed with his revolver lying by his side. Physicians were summoned, but the young man died before they arrived. He had either sat on the side of the bed or thrown himself across it, and placed the pistol to his breast and fired, the bullet penetra ting the heart and causing almost instant death. J. P. Caldwell, Jr.. was the older son of Mr. J. P. Caldwell, and was 19 years of age last March.. He had spent about two years in the navy, but was honorably discharged from the service about a, year'ago. Since then he has been in Charlotte most of the time. He had several attacks of illness, and had suffered a good deal from melancholia. It is needless to speak of how this j tragedy has shocked the family of ! the boy and the entire community. Joe Caldwell had become a familiar . figure here, and had made many friends. He was warm-hearted and : brave, with many fine and likable qualities; and the pitiful manner of his passing evokes general regret and sympathy. ; Cured Piles After 40 Tears. Mr. C.

A distressing case of Fibroid Tumor, which baffled the skill of Boston doctors. Mrs. Hayes, of Boston, Mass., in the following letter tells how she was cured, after everything else failed, by Lydia R Pinkham's Vegetable Compound Mrs. Hayes' First Letter Appealing to Mrs. Pinkham for Help : "Dear Mks. Ptnkham: I have been tinder Boston doctors treat ment for a long time without any relief. They tell me I have a fibroid tumor. I cannot sit down without great pain, and the soreness extends up my spine. I have bearing-down pains both back and front. My ab domen is swollen, and I have had flowing spells for three years. My ap petite is not good. I cannot walk or be on my feet for any length of time. "The symptoms of Fibroid Tumor given in your little book ac curately describe my case, so I write to you for advice." (Signed) Mrs. E. F. Hayes, 252 Dudley St, (Roxbury) Boston, Mass. Note the result of Mrs. Pinkham's advice al though she advised Mrs. Hayes, of Boston, to take her medicine which she knew would help her' her letter contained a mass of additional instruc tions as to treatment, all of which helped to bring about the happy result. "Dear Mrs. Pinkham: Sometime ago I wrote to you describ ing my symptoms and asked your advice. You replied, and I followed all your directions carefully, and to-day I am a well woman. " The use of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound entirely expelled the tumor and strengthened my whole system. I can walk miles now. " JLydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound is worth five dol lars a drop. I advise all women who are afflicted with tumors or female trouble of any kind to give it a faithful triaL" (Signed) Mrs. E. F. Hayf.j 252 Dudley St., (Roxbury) Boston, Mass. Mountains of gold could not purchase such testimony or take the place of the health and happiness which Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound brought to Mrs. Hayes. Such testimony should be accepted by all women as convincing evidence that Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound stands without a peer as a remedy for all the distressing ills of women; all ovarian troubles; tumors; inflammations; ulceration, falling and dis placements of the womb; backache; irregular, suppressed or painful menstruation. Surely the volume and character of the testimonial let ters we are daily printing in the newspapers can leave no room for doubt. Mrs. Hayes at her above address will gladly answer any letters which sick women may write for fuller information about her illness. Her gratitude to Mrs. Pinkham and Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound is so genuine and heartfelt that she thinks no trouble is too great for her to take in return for her health and happiness. Truly is it said that it is Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com pound that is curing so many women, and no other medicine ; don't for get this when some druarsrist, wan fa to soil you oomotking cioo. vRnnn FORFAIT wo cannot forthwith produce tha original letters and signatures of UJlJ U U U aboTe testimonials, which will prove their absolute genuineness.
