The professor who announced that "lor and romance die oat with the sound of the wedding-bells," was the first to Urt the ball rolling. It would seem a brave woman who marries with this echo in her ears, yet we have not heard that there were fewer marriages during the year. There are un happy married lives, but a large precentaf e of these unhappy homes are due to the ill ness of the wife, mother or daughter. During a long period of practice. Doctor pierce found that a prescription made up entire! v of roots and herbs, without the use of alcohol, cured ninety-eight per cent, of tuch cases. After using this remedy for many years in his private practice he put it up in a form that can be had at any store where medicines are handled. Back-id up by over a third of a century of rtiuaikablc and uniform cures, a record such as no other remedy for the diseases and weaknesses peculiar to women ever attained, the proprietors and makers of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription now feel fully warranted in offering to pay $500 in legal money of the United States, for any case of I.eucorrhea, Female Weakness, Pro lapsus, or Falling of Womb which they can not cure. All they ask is a fair and reason able trial of their means of cure. Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription cures headache, backache, nervousness, sleep lessness and other consequences of wom anly disease. "Favorite Prescription" makes weak women strong and sick wom en well. Accept no substitute for the medicine which works wonders for weak women. !). K B. TUCKER, DENTIST, HENDERSON, N.C.

And while slow to vote bonds for any purpose they were folly alive to the benefits derived from good roads. They decided among themselves, however, that they wonld give their personal energies to tbe work of reducing grades, filling up holes and ditching the county roads. For summer travel this was a great improvement.bnt the mud roads were even more difficult to travel than formerly in winter. A few days ago a mass meeting of citl- seus of Gaston county was held at tbe county seat. Dallas. This meeting was very largely attended and without a dis senting voice resolutions looking to hold ing an election on loth of May to pass upon a bond issue of f 300.000 for the purpose of McAdamistng the public roads of that county received a unanimous, vote. It was notable tBat in this meet- j uiir tne ram owners put their snouiuers ; to the wheel to assist in the great work 'on tern plated. Many features of Gaston county show :he great similarity of conditions let ween it and Vance connty. Her su face area is very little greater. Her soil is no bet ter. Her people no more intelligent. The conformation of the land differs but little If any. Her marketcrop is cotton. Under tbe skillful direction of the Benedictine Monks she possesses at or near Belmont in cultivation one of the most profitable and highly improved farms in the State. She has so many and such immense cot ton mills and so many railroad towns which are markets for her staple crop that it is but a few miles to haul to any one of them. Four miles is the greatest distance to haul cotton. How many miles do the farmers haul cotton to Hen derson over the very worst roads in the State? Guilford county has voted for a bondi issue of f 300,000. Gaston county proposes to vote for a bond issue of f 300,000. Vance eounty proposes to vote for a bond issue of 120,000.

The Charlotte Observer every Mon day morning gives a brief resume of the Eastern war situation and pro gress as developed during the pre vious week. In its issue of the 6th, it says: The effort of General Kuropatkin to dislodge the Japanese from winter quarters and break through Oyama's lines proved a disastrous failure, the Japanese maintaining their positions and repulsing the Russians with con siderable slaughter. A dispatch from Mukden , to a St. Petersburg paper gives the Russian casualties as 13, 000, and this may be taken as a con servative estimate. The most des perate fiirhtimr seems to have oc curred on th. 26th and 27th of Jan- rnary, and in some cases it is stated mat entire companies oi ivubsimiik were practically wiped out. The fighting along the Hun river was most desperate, and for two days and nights it seemed that the Japan ese would not be able to hold their own. Sunday a week ago, however, a flerceattai'kby theJapaneset-aused the Russian centre to irive away ana the Japanese rushed in and occupied thp village of Helkoute, the seeming key to the situation, and the Russians were driven across the Hun river. Further fighting on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd of Februerv is reported, in which considerable artillery was used, but this seems to have been of no impor tance. Toward the latter part of the week the weather became too severe for operations and the latent reports from the field of hostilities is that all is quiet. Along with the news of the failure of General Kuropatkin to make any lieadway in his attempt to dislodge the Japanese from their winter quar ters and the disastrous result of his recent operations comes the report that the commander-in--hief of the Russian forces has handed over his command to General Linevitch on ac count of dissensions among the offi cers, -and the bad condition of his health. This rumer hasbevn current in St. Petersburg since the removal of Gen. Gripenberg as commander of the Second Army, but it has not been officially confirmed. The Russian War Office declares that tbe report is improbable, but that it cannot deny it. This has rather an ominous sound when it is remembered that the Russians have regarded Kuropatkin an their hope for a snit-essful outcome of the present war. Tbe news,coiing ae it does-from St. Petersburg, is sig nificant. If true, it means that Rus sian affairs are indeed going from bad to worse.'. :". '. TsV Smsalne off Spring.

Mrx TCWiltadsen At the New York State Assembly of Mothers, a prominent New York doctor told the 500 women present that healthy American women were so rare as to be almost extinct. This seems to be a sweeping state ment of the condition of American women. Yet how many do vou know who are perfectly well and do not have some trouble arising from a derange ment of the female organism which manifests itself in headaches, back aches, nervousness, that bearing-down feeling, painful or irregular menstrua tion, leucorrhcea, displacement of the uterus, ovarian trouble, indigestion or sleeplessness? There is a tried and true remedy for all these ailments. Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com pound, has restored more American women to health than all other reme dies in the ' world. It regulates, strengthens and cures diseases of the female organism as nothing else can. For thirty years it has been curing the worst forms of female com plaints.

To think for one moment of spending two or three hundred thousand dollars of the mhv pie's money on this building, when there are not places to protect the poor unfortunate creatures of our State who are insane, is about the roost ridiculously . absurd thing we have heard mentioned. .

' ' ' - - - The Gold Leaf agrees with its esteemed contemporary in opposing the expenditure of two or three hun dred thousand dollar or any otlier amount for enlarging and beautify ing the capitol building as long as there are not places to can for th unfortunate insane of our State. But surely the State officers are not to blame for not having room to per form their duties, and the talk of "sending them out four .years from uow to a place, where there will lie room and to spare," strikes us as not altogether fair. But there will be no appropriation to enlarge the capitol building at this time, however desirable such u thing may lie. A future Legislature may, und we hope will, do the enlarging and modern izing act, though. A Certain Cure tor Chilblains. Shake into your shoes Allen's Foot-Ease, a powder.

The followingclipping istaken from the San Fraurisco UuHetin of Janu ary 19th: 'The Albert Sidney Johnson Chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy met at the home of Mrs. A. H. Voorbies, on California street this afternoon and held a memorial service in honor of that gallant Confederate soldier, General Rob ert E. Lee. To-day was the anniversary of his birth, and following their annual custom the loyal Southern women of this society paid tribute to his memory, "In honor of the day crosses were pre sented to about fifteen good old Co. fed erate soldiers who had been conspicious for their deeds of bravery in the days long past. ' It . was an interesting ceremony when Mrs. Voorbies, with appropriate remarks and in the name of the Confed erate Daughters, bestowed the medals on the old soldiers. The crosses are made of tbe old Confederate cannon that have been melted and they , are highly prized for the many associations they recall to the Southerner. A review of the life and deeds of Gen eral Lee was read, several musical selec tions and short addresses were given by members of the Albert Sidney Johnson Chapter; and then the nnnlalM were pre sented. The following men whone brav ery has been testified to by members of a Confederate camp were honored: Leon ard Franklin Rozier, Thomas A. Parker, James K. Tucker, George 1. White, Her bert Smith, E Curtis, Lewis Honker, George W. Cretter, C. W. A unburn. Henry Brown. W. E. Franklin, J. M. Mullin, W. Randolph Old, B. H. Thoiuaason and W. H. Doiier." Among the fifteen old ex-Confederate veterans mentioned above the ed itor of the News has a personal ac quaintance of thirty years wi;.li Cap rain George D. White', who has Ihvii and is connected withthegreatwhole sale dry goods lnuw of Murphy, Grant & Co., in that city, for some thing over a quarter of a i-entury. And the writer ran in all sincerity mid truthfulness say h is one who is Worthy and hon'ora hi- in nil that g ies to constitute one of (toil's nohlfinii; and no honor that could be bestowed on Captain White would be amiss. He has a war record, even one itm of which will astound the public of this day. While holding: a captain's j commission around Petfrburr. Va.. I in 186J, he was recouuoiteritig with an orderly, some distance from his headquarters, and was astonish"! to run into a fully equipped company of the Union army. ienlizinr his sure capture unless stratagem were used, and that immediately, Captain White announced to the head otfi-er of the company that he demanded their un I'ouditioual surrender, and that un less they did so at once he wouldir ual his rejrimeiit jut lyoiid a little mound who wonldrush down aud an nihilate the last one of the enemy. His nerve and bravery worked like'a charm and the whole company was captured ami roarelied into the Con federate lines by two ''Johnny IMi without the shedding of blood. The company was sadly humiliated when they realized that a shrewd trick of war had been played upon them, but they took their medicine liketrue sol diers that they were. The above is taken from the Duns muir, California, News, of Jan. 26th, of which Mr. W. T. Manning, formerly one of the owners and editors of the Boaooke News, TVeldon, N C. Capt. George D. White is personally and well known to the irritefand the Gold Leaf endorses all that is said of him by ita California contemporary. He was a brave and gallant soldier in time of war and in peace one of the moat affable, genial ami com pinion able of men. Capt. White is a Virgin tan by birth, removing. to Weldon Boms years after the war; where in company with hia yonnger brother, Thomas C, he was successful! v en gaged in the mercantile business for a long while. He is welland favora bly known and kindly remembered by many of our readers in ami around Weldon who will, be" pleased to learn of his whereabout sand his well doing. It was the writer's pleasure to spend an evening very pleasantly in Capt. White's borne in Oakland (across the bay Irom 8an, Franciico) in May, 1902, on the oecason of the meeting of the National Editorial Association in th GoSJzaCate city. Wilmington Msesvrger. There has been introduced Th the legislature a bill which should be carefully looked into. We have not vet seen the full text of tbe bill, but from what has been pblwlied regard, ing its report, we think it a measure which should be carefully looked into before it is made a law. It is tbe bill regarding the sale of patent medi cines in this State. As we understand the measure it imposes a license tax on every dealer in tbe sale of patent medicines. This may be all right. We cannot say that such men should not 1 required to pay a license tax, es pecially so long a? nn; etrgsBd in every other kind of business have' to pay such privilege tax. But tbstadst objectionable feature of t be bill is that which provides that all patent medi cines offered for sale in this State shall be submitted to the board of health and shall not be sold in this State until approved by that board. This is putting two much arbitrary ?ower in the hands of this board, 'his board is composed of physicians of the alopathic school of men who are well known to be opposed to the use of all kinds of patent medecines. It is against the general ethics of their school to countenance the use of such medicines, ft does not seem right to put in the hands of these men tbeun cautrolied power to say what patent medicines shall be sold in this 8tate and what ones shall not be sold. It is putting too much power in the hands of the avowed enemies of the entire patent medicine system. The Legislature should go slow in pass ing any such law. The interests of t he ma nufact urers if patntmedicines of known standard quality should he guarded against professional preju dice of the professional men who are to occupy the position of judges in passing upon thp question of permis sion of their sale in ouf State. We hope our legislature will give this mat ter due consideration and let all per sons interested be beard. Quack med icines and worthless or harmful nos trums should not be allowed sale in t he State, but fair showing should be given to patent medicines of recog nized standing. Fraud Exposed.

' No Macedoflian Cry In This. Lumberton Argus. The Winborne bill to devote the white man's taxes to the white schools ami the negroes' taxes to the negro schools is u u wise and untimely. Gov. Glenn has only recently declared him self opposed to such a division. The State is interested in educating tbe negro. Besides, confusion would nec essarily arise. For instance, the Ral eigh Post wants to know whether a railroad is black or white. Then there are the finesnegro fines go to negro shools and white man's fines go to white shools, we suppose? Moreover, why not the logical sequence follow that the rich mau's money shall be kept apart from the poor man's, and t hat persons without children go un taxed for shools? Whenever you be iu to classify citizens and parcel out factors the end is unforeseen.
