THE HENDERSON GOLD LEAF -THURSDAY, MAltCH ,4 1909.
The Gold Leaf. ESTABLISHED 1881. BY THAD R. MANNING. THURSDAY. MARCH 4, 1901). The forty-ninth annual State fair will be held at Raleigh October 18th to 2.'Jrd inclusive. J. H. Currie presi dent, Joseph E. Pogue secretary, to whom application may he madf for any information desired. A State Free From Graft or Dis honesty. News and Observer. In December the Examining Com mittee from the General Assembly, composed of members of ljotb politi cal parties, came to Raleigh to make the examination required by law of the books and accounts of State of ficials. They did not content them selves with a cursory examination but went to the bottom. In every case of doubt about the authority for the expenditure the committee gave the benefit of the doubt to pub licity. If any payments, however wise and just, seemed to the com mittee to lack express authorization, it criticized the action or brought it to the attention of the Legislature. More than that the committee, when it felt that the book-keeping methods were not such as should lie used by any State Department, critized the lack of method and did so plainly. Nothing was concealed, nothing was kept back and every irregularity or lack of proper method was set out in their report. The fact that the com mittee had found a number of mat ters that it deemed unauthorized was widely talked and for a few days there gained currency a report that a sensation would be exploded when their report appeared. The report appeared and no sensation followed. Why? Because the committee, Dem ocrat and Republican alike, while criticing certain methods and certain vouchers declared that no evidence of any character of any dishonesty had been disclosed, and there lias leen no suggest ion of such. As soon as the report of the Ex amining Committee was read in the Legislature, a joint Select Committee was named to consider their report. This Select Committee has been care ful and thorough in the work as signed. It has examined every criti cism made, gone into the whole mat ter fully, quoted the law sipplieable. and given the reasons that governed in each case. Having published in full the report of theExaminingCom mittee containing the criticisms we publish elsewhere in full the report of the Select Committee that went into the examination of nil the matters touched upon. Those who read the should read the report printed today. When the Examining Committee made its report and its criticisms, this paper stated that it was most gratifying that a committee that had given the closest scrutiny to every expenditure had found 110 trace of dishonesty and that the matter crit icized involved nothing wore than a few technical violations and a crit icism of the lack of proper book-keeping methods in one department of government, and it demanded that the matters criticised should bo fully gone into to the end that the truth might be established and that errors should lie corrected and the best methods introduced. TheSelect Com mittee has leen diligent and thor ough. It has shown mistakes made by the Examining Committee; it has gone into every transaction, it has secured needed reforms; a nd it makes certain recommendations that will make clear what has heretofore lacked clearness and definiteness. The total result is that North Caro lina people are established and con firmed in their faith that they have a clean, economical and honest State Government, which is free from graft, from dishonesty, from concealment. The report of the Examining Com mittee was signed by the members of both the Democratic and Republican parties, showing that the criticisms were not made iu any partisan spirit but with a view of making even the slightest transaction conform to the letter of the law nnd to require pub lic officials to live in the calcium light. The report of the Select Joint Com mittee is likewise free from partisan bias. It goes fully into every matter and, while giving explanations for the course pursued in every matter, does not seek to deny the few de- )artures from the strict letter of the aw that examination disclosed had been unintentionally taken. The report is signed by both the Republi can as well as all the Democratic members of the committee. It is a matter for gratification that there is no graft or dishonesty in our State administration and also a matter for congratulation that this fact is attested by representative men of both political parties.

I was a victim of this complaint for a long time, the most annoying symptom being a frequent, dull pp.ia in my back. Upon arising in the morning, 1 was often so lame and sore that I could hardly straighten and I even found it difficult to get about. My kidneys were also disor dered and the secretions caused me much annoyance by their frequency in passing. I at last obtained a box of Doan's Kid ney Pills from the Kerner-MacXair Co.'s drug store and they cured me. I now have no backache, my kidneys are nor mal and my health is better in every way.

DESERVES TO BE SEVERELY PUNISHED. The Marsh ville Home publishes an account of an assault made, upon a school teacher, B. H. Griffin, who teaches a school near that place, by one R. A. Hamilton, who had become enraged Iieeause Mr. Griffin whipped his boy. Hamilton went to the school grounds accompanied by one of his sons and brother-in-law, Oscar God dy, and they stood by. with pistols while the assault was made. The teacher received several scratches about the head and face, but was not seriously hurt, Hamilton using only his fists. The assailants were given a preliminary hearing and are held under bond. Commenting on this affair the Statesville Landmark, which usual strikes to the root of a thing in few words, says: There is probably not one case in ."0 where a school teacher improperly whips a pupil, and when a teacher is assaulted for exercising his undis puted right to properly enforce dis cipline, his assailant deserves a term on the chain gaug.

North Dakota has a pure paint law. Prof. Ladd, the State chemist, analyzes a certain paint tabled "contains only lead and zinc and is strictly pure," and finds it no lend at all, a resinous oil, and lieriziue. It is, however, full measure and contains no water. That's like the man on trial for killing his grandmother; proved that he didn't set fire to the houee. No lead, but zinc and barytes, resinous oil, and benzine "strictly pure lead and zinc paint!" Pure paint is lead-zinc-anu-oil; but that isn't all; there is such a thing as proportion and make. The strongest paint is Devoe. North Dakota is doing a handsome thins i holding these confidence people up to scorn. She gives their names as well as their works. Yours truly 20 , F W DEVOE & CO. P.

A bald headed person does not have an equal chance with one blessed with a healthy head of hair, because baldness is too generally accepted as an indication of age. Many large corporations have established an age limit, and refuse to take men over tl. years of age as new employees. Almost 05 per cent, of bald headed people may regain a good head of heal thy hair if they will follow our advice and accept our offer. We have a remedy that we positively guarantee to grow hair on any head, unless the roots of the hair are entirely dead, their follicles closed, and the scalp has become glazed and shiny. We want people to try this remedy at our risk, with the distinct understanding that unless it does exact ly what we claim it will, and gives satis faction in every respect, we shall make no charge for the remedy used during the trial. We know exactly what we are talking about, and with this offer back of our statements no one should scoff, doubt our word or hesitate to put onr remedy to nn actual test. We want everyone in Henderson who is suffering from any 6calp or hair trouble, dandruff, falling hair or baldness to try ourliexall "93" Hair Tonic. We want them to use it regularly say until three bottles have been used and if it does not eradicate dandruff, cleanse and re fresh the scalp, tighten the hair in its roots, nnd grow new hair, we will re turn every cent paid us for the remedy for the mere asking. There is no formal ity expected, and we exact no obligation from the user whatever. We are established right here in Hen derson, and make this offer with a full understanding that our business success entirely depends upon the sort of treat ment we accord our customers, and we would not dare make the above offer unless we were positively certain that we could substantiate it in every par ticular.

Fell from Scaffold and Injured Bis Back Thirty vears ago James C. Lee of 1100 9th St., S. E., Washington, D. C. fell from a scaffold and seriously injured his back. In telling about it he says: ''My suffering was terrible; from the small of my back all around my stomach was just as if I had been beaten with a club. I tried all kinds of plasters, belladonna, caprine and porous, without getting re lief, and bought so-called electric tielta, but none of them did me any good. One day. while working near my daughter's house, my back pained me so badly that I had to quit. I went into the house and lay down for ease. My daughter had a bottle of Sloan's Lini ment in the house and she rubbed my back well with it and gave me some to take home. I used six and a half bottles of Sloan's 25c Liniment and can do as much work now as any man in the shop, although I am sixty-seven years old. I would not be without Sloan's Liniment for any consideration and recommend it to anyone suffering pain." ROLL OF HONOR Second Grade, North Henderson (lraded School, for Week Ending February 26th.
