Mr. Rodwell's Condition is Better. The condition of Mr. C. A. Rodwell whose sickness was reported last week, is improved. He has been ex tremely low and for a time his recov ery seemed much in doubt. A week heart caused him to have frequent sinking spells when it looked like he would pass beyond the rallying point, while the condition of his stomach was such that nourishment or med icine could not be retrained. Ex cessive cigarette smoking it was said had involved these organs to such an extent as to make treatment aud the power of nature to throw off dissease greatly against the patient. The crisis has been reached, a change for the better has taken place and if no further trouble arises the young man will soon be himself again. - - - Growing Tomatoes Some. That our good friend "Uncle John" Clack is a superior gardener always growing prolific as well as early rops, we have known, but he comes orward now and breaks his own record. He brought to our office a ew davs ago a single limb of a to mato vine on which there were 27 tomatoes, leaving 10 well developed ones remaining on the vine 37 in alljon one plant and it still bearing. King of the Earliest is the variety, which might well be called Champion of Bearers also. If anybody can produce a tomato vine with more than .'17 well developed "love apples" on it he is asked to come forward and give an account of himself. THE ONLY WAY. Many Henderson People Have Discov ered It. Just what to do when the kidneys are affected, is a question that concerns both young and old. Weak kidneys neglected in childhood lead to life-long suffering. I'eonle of advanced years, with less vitalitv euffer doubly. In youth or age, languor, backache, urinary irregularity, dizziness aud nervousness make life a burden. There ls one remedy that acts directly on the kidneys and cures these troubles. Doan's Kidney Pills owe their world wide fame to the fact that they cure sick kidneys and cure them permanently. Follow the example ol this Henderson citizen and vou will know thatthisis so. Rev. J. E. llartsell,504 Andrews Ave., Ilenderson, i. C ears: l,bince using Doan s Kiduey Pills, 1 nave had no trouble from disordered kidneys and in return for this great relief I do not hesi tate to recommend the remedy. I had distressing pains across my loins, coupled with a dull backache and I was also bothered by a weakness of the kidneys, in fact, felt jrenerally miserable. Procur ing Doan's Kidney Pills from Kerner- Mcair Co s drug store, i useu tnem a short time and they not only removed the backache, but strengthened my kid neys and improved my condition in every way.

Guaran teed by Melville Dorsey, druggist. "Better Say." This is the title of a little book of helpful suggestions for the correct use of English words and phrases, the value of which cannot be estima ted too highly by every person, who wishes to write or speak correctly. Compiled by James C. Fernald, L. H. D., editor on the staff of the Funk & Wagnalls Standard Dictionary; editor of the Student's Standard Dic tionary; English Synonyms.

There are only 'iT, pages in the work proper but it is worth its weight in gold to the person who makes the proper use of it. "Indolence doth much cor rupt our language," but with such books "correctives" as this and other publications of the Funk & Wagnalls Company, there is posi tively no excuse for not employing our mother tongue in the correct form used by the best writers and speakers. As has been so aptly said by a writer on the subject: "There is part of our education, so important and so neglected in our schools and col leges, that it cannot be too highly impressed on the young man that prepares to nter society. I mean that part that we learn first of all things, yet often have not learned well when death eases us of necessity the art of speaking our own lan guage. In every-day life the value of Greek and Latin, French aud German is small, when compared with that of English." Death of an Aged and Estimable Woman. Mrs. Julia Ann Wilkinson died at her home in this county on July Gtb, aged S.'J years. She was the wife-of Mr. T. It. Wilkinson and mother of Messrs. Licurgus and J. L. Wilkinson and Miss S. E. Wilkinson, all of Vance. In her death a truly good woman has passed to her reward. Of her it has been said that she was a good wife, a good mother and a good neighbor. She never turned any one away empty handed, wheth er they came to beg or borrow. Mrs. uilkinson was a member of the Episcopal church. She joined the church at the age of eighteen aud lived a consistent Christian life until the day of her death. The funeral was held at the home at 5 o'clock P. M., July 7th, Ilev. A. P. Gray conduct ing the service. Interment was made in the old family burying ground on the premises. There was a large at tendance of friends and neighbors from hesurroundingcountry among them a number of colored persons showing the estimation in which she was held in the community and the deep sorrow occasioned by her death.

Wri te for estimate Manufacturing Automobiles in Hen derson. Another industry i to t ndle! to the list of Henderson' manufactur ing enterprises an industry that is destined to carry the name and fame of this town still further and wider. This time it iw the manufacture of automobile. The Corbitt Buggy Company are the people bark of thw proposition and their euci-es-s in the manufacture of buggie, surrejs and carriage is sufficient guarantee of what may le done in any undertak ing that they assume. Some time airo thev built a motor buggy the.r first experiment with the "horseless j and has attracted a great deal of at tention and comment as it is driven about town. Mr. Corbitt said at the time this vehicle was put out that they would be making "sure enough" automobiles just like the standard machines inside of twelve months. He was figuring on the engines try ing to get the beet and most satis factory .thing possible and as soon as all the details were arranged they would be ready to fill orders. And sure enough the Henderson made automobile is coming along. The Corbitt buggy factory has just turned out their "second, and more pretentious, machine. It is a motor surrey, 2-cylinder engine, 18 horse power; two seats, four passengers, and shows up as well as any machine of the same class made anywhere. Run with magneto, shaft driven, no chaius. The price is $750 top and all. The price of the motor buggy is $400 or 42. with top. They have five more machines in course of construction, of larger size and heavier weight, 10 to 18 horse-power, whichjwill soon be on the market. If the Henderson made Corbitt au tomobiles shall have as large a 6ale and establish as high a reputation as the Corbitt buggy more could not be desired. With the Younger Set. Contributed .

A. .Nutall reference was made to the fact that he was a Confederate sol dier ami bore tlw scars of honorable wounds received m battle. We have been shown a letter written- Mr. Nut all dated Jan. 3rd, 18G4, in which he gives an account of nome of his war experiences. He enlisted on the 22nd day of January, 1862, under Dr. Peace, first lieutenant in Company G., 47th North Caroilna regiment, first going into camp near Raleigh, at Camp Maugum. There he was drilled until the 23rd of Mav, when he was sent to Goldsboro where he remained for three weeks. From Goldsboro he was ordered toKinston and left there in time for the Seven Days fight at Richmoud, Va. Then he was constantly on the move being transferred from one point to anoth er finally being sent back to Eastern North Carolina, reaching Kinston on the 17th of December of the same year, too late to get , into the fight there. Then to Suffolk, Va., where on the 24th of December his regiment had a small skirmish with the enemy not much damage being done on either side. From then until the first of June of the following year his reg iment was marching most of the time in Eastern North Carolina, down about Kinston, New Bern, Washing ton, Greenville and Tarboro, taking part in a fight at Blunt's Creek near Washington. We had a great deal of hard marching to do and not much to eat, he wrote. For the remainder we will let the writer tell the story of his experiences in his own way. He said: On the first of Juue we started on a inarch through Maryland and Pennsylvania. On the first day of July the battle of Gettysburg was begun and lasted three days. I was wounded in the first day 's fight had my leg broken just below the knee by a canister shot. Our army started to retreat from there on the fourth of July. I was put in an ambulance and after traveling twenty miles the ambulance broke down and I was left on the road. I laid there by my self for two days and nights without food or water before being removed. From there I was taken to a private house, the home of Mr, Samuel B. Miller, and was taken prisoner after staying there thsee weeks. I was carried to a hospital at Chambers bury, Pa., where I remained until the seventieth of August, when 1 was taken to a hosptial at Harrisburg, Pa. I received good treatment from the Yankees while I was a prisoner. I was sent from there on the twelfth of November to Baltimore, Md., and the same day I was paroled and put on a flag of truce boat and sent around to Richmond, where they kept me until the twenty-fifth of November when I received a furlough to go home. Although it has been six months since I was wounded my wound is not well yet. Experinenced travellers have found great benefit by taking with them a bottle of Dr. Seth Arxol'ds Balsam. It cures illness caused by impure water and sudden changes of climate. Warranted by Thomas Bros., W. W. Parker and Melville Dorsey. Fine Tobacco Farm.
