Mr. Rodwell's Condition is Better.
The condition of Mr. C. A. Rodwell
whose sickness was reported last

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.

"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. Anto
nyms and Preposition?, etc. Publish
ed by Funk & Wagnalls Company,
New York and London. 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

showing the estimation in which
she was held in the community and
the deep sorrow occasioned by her
death.

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.

Colored Baptist Convention.
Meets in Warrenton This Week-
Will be in Session from the 15th
to the 18th.
Rev. L. T. Christmas, General Mis
sionary and Colporter of the North
Carolina State Baptist Convention,
and the rvational Baptist Convention,
colored, sends us the following article
with request to publish, which we do
with pleasure:
the North Carolina (National) Bap
tist Convention convenes Thursday,
July 15th, with the Coley's Spring
Baptist church, and holds through the
18th inst.
Many distinguished representatives,
both men and women, arc topeak.
This convention is composed of
churches, associations, district conven
tions, B. Y. P. U's and Women's Mission
ary Societies, and is a branch depart
ment of the National Baptist Convention
of the United States of America, the latter
being the largest negro organization in
the world.
These conventions are doing mission
ary work in all the states of the Union
and in many foreign fields.
1 hey also operate a creditable publish
ing house, which employs hundreds of
their people.
The work of the colored Baptists re
ceives $20,000 annually from the South
ern Baptist Convention (white).
The salary of Dr. William Beckbam,

less cost than ever before. Its coloring
is bright, beautiful and lasting. It won't
have to be painted again for 12 to 15

In mentioning the death of Mr. C.
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.,

distress and anguish of heart at the
disappearance of her son, hoping we
would put it in the paper so some
kind person might see it and help
her to get her boy back. Robert
Mitchell left home on Friday night,
the second day of July. He'came in
the direction of Henderson and the
mother thinks he was enticed away
by a white mau who was in the neigh
borhood at the time gettingup hands
to go to Virginia to work in a uw
mill.
The boy is ten years old, dark com
plexion, but not what might becalled
coal black. He is a cripple his left
leg having been broken and is shorter
than the right causing him to limp
badly. His mother says he has been
a good, dutiful and obedient boy all
his life never doing anything wrong
before. He was hired to Mr. Ed
Lassiter and was treated kindly. He
had a good home and there was no
cause for his running away and the
act was evidently that of a thought
188 boy who was over persuaded.
Minerva Mitchell impressed us as
being an intelligent, kindly nnd
