THE HENDERSON GOUD LEAF -THURSDAY, JULY 8, 1909.
The Gold Leaf. ESTABLISHED 1881. IiY THAD R. MANNING. THURSDAY, JCLV 8. 1000. This from thf Wilmington Stur is good advice and worth acting upon: (Jet in the push. Ueabragger, blower, boostf-r and boomer for your town. If 3-ou an a knocker be a man and kick yourself for being an "undesira ble citizen' 1'iiKAt n the gospel of good roads. As the Hultimori'MuTiu fa (.-furors' Rec ord hays, the man who is directly workiDg for good road.-j is directly worknig for the bet ti-rinent of man kind, lie is working for the advance ment of education and religion and for all that makes the highest civili zation. j;t the good work go on. Iri.v ought to be made to bring things to pass for Henderson, fn fact, we should keep everlastingly at it and make every month better than the preceding one. Tut yourshoulder to the wheel and help to push tilings forward. There are many things that can, and should, be done for the upbuilding and betterment of the town and community. --a- - - Tin: photograph of Abraham Lin coln will suppbmt the Indian head on pennies hereafter. Quite appro priate, we should say, the class of people into whose hands these coins are found in the greatest numbers, are the ones that appealed greatest to Lincoln the poor man. New Uerii S';;. It was Lincoln who said the Lord must love the poor people better than the rich, because He made so many more of them. It will not be the fault of the press of North Carolina if there is a repeti- L tion of the I Jiggers murder case in this State. The newspapers are sounding the danger signal and pro testing with all the power and logic they ean command against such a farcical failure of law and justice in dealing with man-slayers of the log gers type. I'ut it is not the murder ers who are to blame for escaping punishment. Let's place the respon sibility where it belongs, with law yers and sentimental, incompetent jurors. There's where the trouble lies and unt il this is corrected the ends of justice will continue to be defeated and the penalty of crim ; evaded. A whiter in the Charlotte Observer last week criticised the jury in the Diggers murder trial, employing some rather plain language. One of the jurors came back at him through the columns of the same paper half opolgizingfor ''unduly dignifying the communication in question by an imadverting to it,?' but its '-unpardonable impertinence prompted a re ply." If this juror could read all that has been said in criticisim of that verdict he would realize that more than one individual has been guilty of "unpardonable impertinence," or whatever he is pleased to term it. The action of the jury in this case is indefensible as the press and public uppears to view it ami the less those responsible for it have to say about it the better. THE BIGGERS VERDICT. Confusional insanity! Ah, well. Wntrh Charlotte grow. Itoeking ham Anglo-Saxon. Yes, Charlotte is not all of Mecklen burg county (quite1 and that jury is not Charlotte. Hut here is hoping that such juries and such verdicts may "grow" beaut ifaully less in North Carolina. CARRS BUY ANOTHER KNITTING MILL. A Durham dispatch states that the Durham Hosiery Mills Company, (ion. .Julian S. Carr and Sons, pro prietors, have added by purchase the (loldsboro Knitting Mills to their already extensive possessions in that line. TheCarrsarethe largest hosiery manufacturers in the State, if not in the South. This corporation now owns five mills, two in Durham, one in Chapel Hill, one in High Point and the one in (loldsboro. The dispatch says that "each of (Jen. Carr's sons hns a large factory and both father and boys are entirely devoted to the industry. Thedeneral has been philanthropist to them as to everybody else in the community. And they make good with what is before them." We have the eternal race problem always with us. A negro was ap jvinted principal of one of the New York schools and over half the teach ers in the school asked for a transfer from that school. The negro princi pal has sailed for Europe. This is in New York city not in Charleston or New Orleans. News und Observer. From every point through which the Southbound will ruu comes the greatest enthusiasm. Hoanoke and Charleston believe that it will make those cities the greatest in their sec tions. Lexington and Wadesboroare confideut of complete revolutions. We in Winston-Salem believe that the railroad will make this the fore most city in the State. And all the towns have a right to feel elated. Winston-Salem Journal. Mr. Ericson's Old House. (Jo see it, it's a beanty. It stands out among all its neighbors, because the col oring is so bright and clear. Mr. Ericson painted -with L. & M. Paint and saye it cost 1-"J less than ever before. He bought only 12 gallons of L. & M. and 0 jral ions of Linseed Oil to mix with it. This made 21 gallons of pure paint, and cost only $1.20 per gallon. It's as handsome the finest in town.

Thirty-seventh Annual Con vention of the North Garo Iina Press Association Held in Hendersonville, One of the Most Pleasant and Prof itable in the History of the Organization Attendance Was Large and Sessions Marked by Earnest Work Editors Were Captivated by the Charming People of the "Lake City" of the Moun tains Guests of the Hotel Gates. If there has been a more pleasura ble or profitable meeting of the North Carolina Press Association than the oneat Hendersonville, this writer does not recall it. The fact that we met in Hendersonville ex plains much. There is no more delightful place place to visit whet her in an individual capacity or otherwise. A more hos pitable and charming people one does not meet with anywhere than those of the leautiful "Lake City" of the mountains. There are no frills and furbelows about them, but refined courtesy, cordiality and hospitality that puts the visitor at ease and makes him feel at home among friends. The editors and their wives and daughters were guests at the Hotel dates, a large, well appointed and ad mirably conducted commercial and resort hotel and being housed all together their stay was made the more pleasant. Mr. A. A. Gates, the proprietor, is the right man in the right place and leaves nothing un done for the comfort and pleasure of his guests. Of fine physique, hand some and soldierly in bearing, genial, wholesouled and anticipating every want he is the ideal host and bon viviant who makes friends of all who come under this kindly care. The hotel lobby, dining room and ball room were decorated in honor of the occasion and the string of elec tric lights on the street in front added a festive appearance to the bijr building. The convention was presided over by Kev. J. (). Atkinson, D. D., ed itor of the Elon Christian Sun, third vice-president and he did it so well and gracefully that he was elected for the ensuing term President .1. A. Thomas, of the Louisburg Times, was detained on account of sickness. He sent his ad dress, however, with regrets at his inability to be with the brethren in the flesh although he was with them in spirit feeling a very deep interest in their deliberations. Dr. Atkinson read the paper, with such good effeect, that we hardly knew which most to admire, the fine thought, lofty ideals and elegant diction of President Thomas's excellent message or the faultless manner in which it was de livered to the convention. It was one of the best president's addresses ever read before the North Carolina Press Association. A telegram was sent to President Thomas thanking him for his excel lent address, extending sympathy for him in his illness, and expressing the hope that he would soon be re stored to perfect health. The sessions of the convention were held in the beautiful new courthouse. Addresses of welcome were made by Mayor It. H. Staton, Col. R. V. Pick ens and M. L. Shipman, editor of the Hendersonville Hustler. At the con clusion of the speeches of these gen tlemen Col. 1'ickens made the hit of the occasion by presenting to Presi dent Atkinson a large brass key, (used by him as a gavel) which he he said was the key to the town. "The town is yours," he said, "on the authority of the Mayor and by offer of the people, take it and enjoy yourselves. Do as you please, stay as long as you wish the longer the better we will like it and come again whenever you will in a body, in pairs, or individuals." In taking the keyDr. Atkinson rose and held it up declaring that the edi tors had the key to thesituation and they would accept the invitation so warmly and graciously extended by the Mayor, the people, the press and the oldest and most distinguished citizen of the town, speaking for him self and everybody else in Hender sonville, and the regions round about, and make the most of it. And they did. The response to the addresses of welcome by Archibald Johnson was a gem. He is as good a speaker as he is an editor and higher praise could not be pronounced though columns should be written. While there was naturally and nec essarily, much of shop talk, the pa pers were in4the main above the av erage in merit and public interest. Some of them were indeed of a high order of excellence, and more than one would have been creditable to any bright minded young man as his graduating thesis. Take for in stance such subjects as "The Future of North Carolina and the Part to be Played Therein by the the Press," bv Archibald Johnson; "The Relatiou of the Press to the Good Roads Move ment," by II. B. Varner; "What the Country Paper can do to Promote Rural Development," by Clarence II. Poe;in the hands of ableand thought ful men, they were treated iu a broad and comprehensive manner worthy of the theme and the essayist. And the admirable paper of Rev. Dr. J. O. Atkinson. "Why Every Editor and Publisher Should Belong to the Press Association," was full of fine thought and contained much besides reasons why the Association should have a larger membership. Likewise the paper of J. J. Farriss on "The Editor as a Town Rooster," abounded in ideas and suggestions apart from singing the praise of the town paper for the part it may plav as a town builder. It was observed that not one of the number eight besides the histor ian's paper and the annual oration who had been appointed to read a paper failed to respond. Heretofore perhaps not more than half showed up with anything but an excuse. This to our mind indicated a deeper interest and a desire to do the things that one finds to do a spirit of ser vicewhich was manifest in most of the papers read. And in the discussions heard some of the editors showed themselves as apt and ready in speaking as they are in writing. There was much in this convention to make us feel good. We have at tended every meeting with the ex ception of three, as we now recall, since the Association met at Waynes ville, in 1882, and we do not remem ber to have attended a better meet ingwhere the spirit of service, and loyalty, and hope, and helpfulness, seemed to be a part of the brethren as at Hendersonville. There have been other meetings the social and pleasurable side of which were just as fine, (we had met in Hendersonville twice before) but in the things that make for the welfare of the individual, the community, the State, the Nation, none of them have impressed and pleased us so much as this. There were addresses during the convention by Rev. Plato Durham of Concord; M. V. Richards, head of the Immigration and Industrial de partment of the Southern Railway, and editor of the Southern Field, a publication which has done much for the development of the South; J. P. Cook, chairman of the board of di rectors of the Stonewall Jackson Training and Industrial School, and others; a car ride to Laurel Park by courtesy of Capt. W. A. Smith, owner of the park and the tramway running to it; a carriage drive to Mt. Hebron and other diversions provided by the citizens. The officers elected for the ensuing year were as follows: President Rev. J. O. Atkinson, D. D., Elon Christian Sun. First Vice-President M. L. Ship man, Henderson ?ie Hustler. SecondVice-President J.H.Swann, Madison Record. Third Vice-Presiden-W. K. Ja cobson, Washington Progress. Secretary and Treasurer J.B.Sher rill, Concord limes. Historian Archibald Johnson, Thoma8villeCZjarijr and Children. Orator W. C. Hammer, Asheboro Courier. Poet-D. L. St. Clair, Sanford Ex press. Executive Committee H. A. Lon don, Pittsboro Record, W. C. Dowd, Charlotte News, H. B. Varner, Lex ington Dispatch, Josephus Daniels, Raleigh News and Observer, D. T. Edwards, Kinston Free Press. It was resolved that the executive committee be authorized to call a midwinter session of the Association. The place of holding the meeting next year, and the time, was left with the executive committee to decide. Invitations were extended the Asso ciation to meet at High Point and elsewhere in the central section of the State, but it is probable the Associa tion will go to the seacoast next time, either Morehead City or Wrightsville. Friday the editors went to Toxa way, in the beautiful "Sapphire Country," where they were guests at the magnificent Toxaway Inn at Liake Toxaway until Saturday when they turned their faces homeward.

Improved Cooking Apparatus Which Promises fluch Double Oven Range an Innovation In the Cooking Line Demonstrations Given In Char lotte. An improvement in the art of cooking is always of the greatest interest to housekeepers. Mr. Win. T. Lewis is ex hibiting at No. 3 West Fourth street a oew style range for which he claims many advantages. The fire box is very email because he claims that less than half the usual fuel is required to do a fixed amount of cooking. His ranges are made for one or two ovens. The range he is exhibiting is a doable oven range. Usually the products of combus tion or heat passes over the top of the oven, thence around it, and to a smoke fine on one side. In the case of this new range, the products of beat from the fire box may be first divided to pass two different ways, half around each ovjn, then again they may be separately parted so as to pass any proportion of the heat over the top of the oven or any pro portion down the side and under the bottom. This is accomplished by a peculiar sliding damper, which parts the heat to go the two separate ways. Tht ovens being completely enveloped in the heat and the proportion passing over the top and under the bottom, being under absolute control, give the oven a perfectly even temperature throughout. Biscuits may be completely cooked in this oven when suspended in a pan on a grid and without touching the oven at all at any place. The ends of the range are double, and therefore they give out the least heat. With only one or two quarts of ordinary bitnminons coal in the fire box, comparatively thin, biscuits may be baked completely done in from 4 to 5 minutes. The results would seem to be excellent as to the quality of the food cooked. The even temperature of the ovens makes a great advantage in roasting meats. All of what is here said is either quoted from Mr. Lewis or the result of observation of the range in its work of demonstration. If Mr. Lewis' claims prove true, this range js an important advance over others, in economy of fuel, in time of cooking and in excellence of results. The above which is taken from the Charlotte Chronicle, interests us. Our contemporary does not throw quite enough light of the subject, however. It does not state whether this new range is the invention of Mr. Lewis and is being tried out for the first time, or if it has been on the market long enough for the claims made for it to be fully demonstrated. By whom made and the name by which it is known, the public may be desirous of knowing. Fnyetteville Index. No place or people in the State is richer in historic lore than Fayette ville, and it was in line with the "eter nal fitness of things" that Chief Jus tice Walter Clark was selected orator of the day for the Liberty Point cele bration. He is not only a profound thinker and our most distinguished jurist, but he is a great North Caro lina historian as well. And in his visit here and in his participation in the great celebration here, Fayette ville and this section have been hon ored. Splendid Credit of North Carolina. Chatham Record. The f 500,000 asylum bonds have been sold by the Council of State to the Raleigh Savings Bank at $1.03, or $15,000 premium that being the best bid received. These bonds were issued to enlarge the facilities for caring for the State's insane at the different State Hospitals and are to run for a period of forty years and will draw four per cent, interest. The handsome premium received for these bonds bearing so low a rate of in terest is but another illustration of the splendid credit which our State has with the financial world.

Scores of Henderson Readers Are Learning the Duty of the Kidneys. To filter the blood is the kidneys' duty. When they fail to do this the kidneys are sick. Backache and many kidney ills follow; Urinary trouble, diabetes. Doan's Kidney Pills cure them all. Henderson people endorse our claim. O. P. Wortham, Henderson, N. C, says: "From personal experience, I know Doan's Kidney Pills to be an ideal kidney remedy and are worthy of recom mendation. For some time my kidneys were badly disordered and I was caused much annoyance by the frequent pas sages of the kidney secretions. I also suf fered a great deal from backache and sharp pains across my loins but was at a loss to know how to obtain relief until Doan's Kidney Pills were brought to my attention. Procuring a box at Kerner-McNair Co's drug store, I used them and they quickly corrected the difficulties. I have had no backache or other symptoms of disorded kidneys since."

Iu the presence of the race prejudice in the North that causes a mob to wish to kill all the negroes in a com munity because one has committed a crime, and the prejudice in the South that sometimes works an injury to the weaker race, it is pleasant to re flect that in North Carolina, in most places, there is friendship and good feeling between the races. Let it be perpetuated. The Chatham Record prints this week the death of a colored man in Pittsboro and the esteem in which he was held that shows the existence of a spirit that is to be found in nearly every community in the South. The Record says: "A colored man, named King Staton, died here last Saturday whose death de serves more than a passing notice. He had been employed on the Pittsboro rail road ever since its construction, in 1886, at first as a section hand and then for over twenty years as a brakeman and fireman. He was always in a good hu mor and polite, and was most faithful in the discharge of his duties, ready and prompt in doing whatever he was told to do. 'That his faithful discharge of his duties was duly appreciated we will mention that Capt. James F. Alston, who has been the conductor of our train for over twenty years, thought so highly of him that, at his personal expense, he i. j i j 1 j : naa mm properly careu lor uunug uw long sickness and bought a nice coffin for his burial. This was most creditable to Captain Alston and also to his faith ful employe. "All who have been traveling on tne Pittsboro railroad will miss the hearty laughter and smiling face of this humble black man, who did well his duty in tnai state of life in which it had pleased God to call him." There would never be any race trouble if all the negroes were like King Staton and all the white men were like Captain Alston. This inci dent should be instructive to those who find only hard things to say of the race conditions in the South. Tobacco Flues 2 We are headquarters for TOJBACCflD FEjIIJIES.
