These advantages any one can plainly see by an examination of the handsome array of stocks that crowd the show cases, and which comprise a larger assartment of standard watch cases and watch movements, from the cele brated Howard timepiece down throughout a variety of grades to the lower priced but useful production, the collection in its completeness of va riety of quality and design anticipating all conditions and tastes. Then there are attractive exhibits of the very latest creations in the jewelry line in cluding rings, chains, charms, neck laces, bracelets, stick-pins, brooches, pendants, and such like pretty crea tions, which are a pleasure to own and which for that reason are the most appropriate present that could possibly be made. This latter remark applies with equal truth to everything in the entire store, to the silverware as to the cutglass ware in which lines select collections are shown, and also to the gold, silver and pearl handled umbrel las which compel admiration.

The history of the use of elec tricity as a public utility in Hender son dates from the year 1888, during which year a group of the commu nity's progressive citizens organized a company, installed a plant and intro duced a service. Owing to a number of reasons, chief of which was the lack of proper equipment, the original plant had a checkered career up to the time it passed to its present own ers, early in 1904 and who, taking in the situation at a glance, saw no al ternative but to build up new, for they wisfly recognized the fact that the essentials of a first-class service were the very latest and most improved machinery and appliances. Some few repairs were made during that Year H, -n' imperative instances, these were of a temporary character, plans were being matured for an en tire new equipment, which material ized in the fall of 1904, when the old property was abandoned and the pres ent modern and substantial station cctmued. The new station, for it is yet but five years old, is located en Spring street adjoining the Grand Theatre and the Seaboard railrral tracks and consists of a neat and con veniently arranged brick structure in which is installed as complete ami modern an equipment for the genera tion of electricity as can be found anvwhere on earth. This equipment comprises a battery of boilers, two Ball engines of 450 horse power, two generators having a capacity of 2.r.0 kilowatts; an elaborate switchboard and all the auxiliaries found in a com pletely appointed institution of this kind. The facilities anticipate effec tively all present needs for a prompt and a reliable service, likewise those of future months and years which are bound to increase apace with Hender son's steady development as an indus- LtDltn:.reliahaity and courtesy.

This de partment is in charge of H. W. Mixon, a graduate optician of the South Bend j College of Optics, and who is licensed under the rorth Carolina laws to prac tice his profession. In this department eyes are examined free and lenses ad justed to correct and alleviate any malady arising from weak or defective vision. Being an expert watchmaker and jeweler, Mr. Mixon 's services are in constant demand by the owners of valuable watches, for his skill in the adjustment and repair of their delicate mechanism has been thoroughly es tablished and is generously recognized. In jewelry repair work his mechanical skill is always in evidence and for this reason work is constantly arriving from all directions. A. W. Gholson and W. H. Pettus compose the firm which began business in Henderson three years ago, and during the inter vening period the most gratifying re sults have been secured in building up a select and a constantly growing patronage and a reputation which has become a synonym for reliability. As Mr. Pettus time is taken up by his duties as cashier of hte Bank of Drakes Branch, Va., the management since the inception of the business has been in the hands of Mr. Gholson, who is certainly to be commended for his alertness and enterprise in giving to Henderson an establishment in the jewelry line so complete in stock equipment and so progressive in methods that there is no longer any excuse to go away from home tobuy a watch, diamond or anything in jew elry, and the discriminating and ob servant admit the fact.

The service of the Company at the present time furnishes power for manufacturing purposes to about twelve industries, some of which are conducted on a scale of pronounced magnitude: for all of the many stores, and offices in Henderson, for the il lumination of a number of homes and for municipal lighting. This service extends to the most advanced methods of heating by electricity and. to the use of the celebrated Tunston lamp, which increases the light from a 16 candle power current threefold as compared with .the old incandescent bulb and whose use cost no more. The very latest modern appliances used in connection with electricity are exhibited at the company's office, such as fans, laundry irons, ranges, and various utensils for cooking purposes, all of which goes to prove that the management is ever on the alert to secure for Henderson's people all that is latest, newest and best and which possess the merits of convenience and economy.

Supply Co.. can be formed for with such a record this business is easily among the leading enterprises engaged in the retail lines in all north-central North Carolina. The handling of such a great volume of business means the constant possession of exceptional facilities to render the greatest value for the money and to surround every transac tion by a service that is prompt, effi cient and satisfactory. These superior facilities, which are indeed exceptional advantages, arise from doing things in a big way, such as purchasing in car loads all heavy commodities right at the original sources of supply, where quantity wholesale purchases compel inside and the lowest fractional in voice prices and trade discounts, and by buying in other lines in proportion ately large amounts and always from the warehouses of the manufacturers and producers where possible. This policy of quantity purchasing estab lishes a bed rock basis of wholesale cost on which the business is con ducted, introduces and maintains varie ty of quality and price sufficient to re spond satisfactorily to all ordinary needs and gives to the establishment the feature of being at all times and on all occasions a reliable source of supply.
