TIIK UJ5NDEKSON GOLD JEAF THURSDAY, JANUA11V 20. 1910.
The Gold Leaf. ESTAPLISHED 1881. - BY THAD R. MANNING. THURSDAY, JANUARY 20, 1910. The (ioi.ii Leaf acknowledges re ceipt of the program of the annual session of the North Carolina Akso ciatian of City Public School Super intendents aul Principals, to be held in Durham, January 'J7, 2s and 20. The officers of the Association are L. ('. Broaden, president, Raleigh ; Har ry Howell, vice-president, High Point; C. W. Wilson, secretary, Greenville. Such men as Superintendent Tighe, Prof. E. C. Brooks, Dr. C. AY. Stiles, Prof. J. A. Matheson, Prof. J. A. Bivens.and others will be among the speakers. Pv the way, what has become of Brother Cade and his new typeset ting inaching which was to revolu tionize the printing business? The first completed working model was to be ready last fall and a practical demonstration made of it at Shelby, this State, we were told, and patient ly and expectantly we have been awaiting developments. Can the Shelby Star tell us anything that will encourage the hope that the typesetting problem will ever be solved for the fellow who cannot af ford a Mergenthaler? A nlw enterprise for which Hender son offers an inviting field is a hosiery mill. Knitting mills we have had and they did not succeed. Put they were not of the right kind. A factory making knit goods underwear exclu sively meets with a more serious obstacle in the labor problem than one manufacturing half hose and stockings. The yarn is at hand the product of our home mills thus saving freight, the demand for the goods is assured as we see it and every promise of success is open to such an enterprise established here. AVhy not have a hosiery mill along with our other successful manufac turing industries? What say our pub lic spirited, enterprising men of money? Sermon to the Veterans. The special sermon of Rev. J. A. McClure preached to Heny L. Wyatt Camp, Confederate Veterans, at the Presbyterian church Sunday morn ing, wns heard by a large and attent ive congregation. The main audito rium was full a number of persons occupying chairs in the aisles. There was a good turnout of the Veterans, headed bv Commander J. T. R. Hoover and' Adjutant T B. Parham. The Vance (Juards, under command of Capt. B. F. Payne, at tended in force, and a number of the ladies of Vance County Chapter, Daughters of the Confederacy, graced the occasion by their presence also. Mr. McClure's sermon was a fine ef fort, worthy of the speaker, the oc casion,, and the theme, '"The Captain of our Salvation" being the text on which the discourse was basd. It was inspiring, ennobling, uplifting, abounding in fine thought, and apt illustration. Drawing an analogy between the life of thesoldier and the life of the Christian, the speaker pointed an object lesson in high ideals, potriotism, loyalty to the cause of truth and right, obedience and service, and those who heard him were warm in their praise. It is our intention to publish the sermon in full, by request of some of the Veterans, and will not undertake further comment preferring to let it "speak" for itself to those who did not hear it. Fatal Automobile Accident in Jack sonville, Fla. Mr. 1. J. Young received a telegram Sunday afternoon from his brother-in-law. Mr. Asa Farrar, of Jackson ville, Fla., conveying the sad intelli gence of the death of one of his little sons, William, aged about six years, as a result of an automobile accident. The following particulars were given in an Associated Press dispatch pub lished in the newspapers Monday: Jackson ville, Fla.. Jan. 16. Little William K. Farrar, years of age, lies dead at the home of his father, Asa Far rar, traveling claim agent of the Sea board Air Line Hail way, and his brother. James Farrar, 8 years of age, is danger ously injured, uaving been run down by a big sight-seeing car on one of the prin cipal boulevards this afternoon. The little boys were riding their bicycle, Wil liam doing the propelling and James be ing on the handle-bars. Just as the big car was about to pass them, the wheel veered and struck the big automobile, William Farrar's skull was fractured and he was internally injured, dying be fore he could be taken home. Frank Sparling, driver of the automobile-was arrested. It lias been -learned since that James' injuries were not serious. Friends of the familv svmpathize with them in the tragic death of the little boy. Mr. and Mrs. Farrar for merlv lived in Henderson, Mrs. Far rar, who was Miss Mamie Young, daughter of the late Dr. W. W. and Mrs. Anne K. Young, being a native of this place. Death Comes as a Relief From Suf- fering. Mrs. Kthel Rlackley. wife of Mr. Oscar T. Blackley. died at her home near the Corbitt buggy factory at 12 o'clock Tuesday night. She had been sick a long time of an incurable disease, ami had suffered a great deal. Death came as a relief from pain ainkweariness of the frail body. She was prepared for her departure and only a short time before she died she expressed a readiness and willing ness to answer the summons when it should come to her. Mrs. Blackley was a daughter of Mr. J.T. Freeman of Henderson, and was 22 years old. She leaves a husband but no child ren, their only child dying last Sep tember. The body will be taken to Grove Hill church, near the old family home place in Granville county, about 8 miles beyond Franklinton, today for burial.

Special to News anil Observer. Weldon, N. C, Jan. Vi. Surveys are now being made and route map ped off for a new steel railroad bridge over Roanoke river at this place and two miles of road to tap the main line of the Atlantic Coast Line rail way at (Jarysbug, thus obviating the necessity for the Atlautic Coast Line to use the Seaboard bridge and track from (Jarysburg to this point. For sometime the Atlantic Coast Line Railway Company has leen con sidering and preparingplans to build a bridge here and to extend its track to (larysburg. In the fall of 1877 the Petersburg and Weldon railroad (now part of the Atlantic Coat Line system) lost by the great freshet of that year their steel bridge in Mush Island and the tracks and roadbed were washed away. This loss caused the road to enter into a contract with the Sea board Air Line to use its track from Garysbug to Weldon passing over the Seaboard bridge and the old right of way was abandoned. Since that time the Halifax and Northampton highway brKlge has been constructed on the old railroad piers. The Coast Line's new route will bring them into Weldon overhead. The bridge will lie West of the Sea board bridge and will cross the land formerly owned l3' J. T. Evans, now owned bv Dr. D. B. Zollicoffer. At present the plan is to build a steel bridge to cost in the neighbor hood of $1,000,000 and come into Weldon in the rear of what is now known as the Weldon hotel. The Atlantic Coast Line and the Seaboard will build a union depot, two stories high. Ihe Seaboard peo ple will use the lower or first floor and the Atlantic Coast Line will use the second story. Their passenger t rains will come in even with the sec ond floor, just as the Seaboard Air Line trains now run into Richmond, at the Main street station. The track from Weldon to Garys- burg will be a double track and the bridge will be constructed for a double track. The surveyors are driving the pegs and preparing the way for the road bed and within the next lew weeks the road will have a large force of hands at work on the grading and t rack laying. Letter From Chapel Hill. To the Cold Leaf. Chanel Hill, X. C, Jan. 17, ltllu.-Dr. Archibald Henderson has this month an article on (ieorge Meredith in the Deutsche Reven. published 111 Renin. Dr. Hender son contriuutes 111 tins country to me Arena, Scribners, Harper's Monthly, Current Literature, Mansey, The North merican Review, and the Atlantic Monthly. Last year he had several ar ticles in foreign magazines. As a critic of the two Merediths, Mark Twain, Ibsen, and Rernard Shaw, Dr. Henderson has achieved a reputation on twocontinents. Ihe l arohna-Oeorgia debate will be held in Chapel Hill about the middle of April. The Carolina-Washington & Lee debate has been postponed from March to April. This debate will be held in Grpensboro. ' The Fniversity Y. M. C. A. was repre sented by six delegates at the-Laymen's foreign Missionary Convention which was held in Greensboro. All of these young men are members of the the stu dent volunteer band and intend to go ns missionaries to Japan, China, India, and Africa. Dr. (ieorge Howe spoke before the Y. M. ('. A.Tuesday night on "The Spirit of Honor." He traced the growth of the honor system in the American colleges and made an appeal for the widening and deepening of the spirit of honor in our system of student self-government. Dr. 1 nomas Huthn, senior Professor of Law, attended the trial of the case of the United States vs The American Tobacco Company before the United States Su preme Court. He gave an interesting account of this significant case to the law school. There are numerous rumors that sever al members of the Uuiversity faculty have received offers from other colleges and universities with far larger salaries. It is becoming a serious question how long the Legislature of North Carolina is go ing to allow other universities and other States to draw away the big men of the University. Dozens of the faculty could leave to-morrow, but they remain with many a conflict between dire necessity and college and State loyalty. Plans to Entertain State Federation of Women's Clubs. Contributed. The Four Federated Clubs of Hen derson held a joint meeting in the Masonic Hall Thursday afternoon. Jan. L'Jth, to make plans for enter taining the North Carolina State Federation of Women's Clubs, which will hold its annual meeting here in May. 1 ne various committees were elected to make the necessary ar rangements and plans for their enter tainment. Mrs. J. T. Alderman, ex-president of the Federation, was chosen to de liver the address of welcome, and the presidents of the different clubs will also give greetings. The Federation will number about ninety, if each club sends its full representation, and we hope to entertain them in Hender son s usually cordial way.

Mrs Taylor proved herself to be a most charming hostess. Deafness Cannot be Cured by local applications, ns they cannot reach the diseased portion of the ear. There is only one way to cure deafness, aud that is by con stitutional remedies. Deafness is caused by an inflamed condition of the mucous lining of the Eustachian Tube. When this tube is inflamed you have a rumbling sound or im perfect hearing, and when it is entirely closed, deafness is the result, and unless the inllam mation can be taken out and this tube re stored to its normal condition, heurinir will be destroyed forever: nine cases out of ten are caused by Catarrh, which is nothing but un inflamed condition of the mucous surfaces. We will irive One Hundred Dollars for any case of Deafness (caused by catarrh) that cannot be cured by II all's Catarrh Cure. Semi for circulars free. F. J. CHENEY & CO., Toledo, O.

A Growing: Charlotte Concern Mrs. ' Jos Person and her Wonderful Suc cessAn Enterprise That is Prosper ing. Friends of Mrs. Joe Person and her hod, Mr. Rufus Person, in Vance ; county will read with interest the fol low i'tr article wich is taken from the Charlotte Observer: "Charlotte with its varied enter prises is particularly interested in a comparatively recent addition, oper ating as the Mrs. Joe Person Remedy Company. Mr. II. M. Person, mana ger, and Mrs. Joe Person moved their business to Charlotte some three years uyro and it has shown wonder ful increase each year. The j'ear just closed, however, is the banner year for the sale of Mrs. Person's remedies and preparations. The .sale of the Remed' alone has exceeded the sales of any previous year by 590 dozens. "The sale of the Mrs. Joe Person's preparations is looked after through out the State by Mrs. Joe Person personally. Mrs. Person, who grows younger each year, numbers her friends throughout the State by the scores. It will be of interest to the public to know that Mrs. Person numbers each bottle of her Remedy and records in the office where each bottle goes. The care taken in pre paring the medicines is no doubt to a very great extent responsible for the increasing sales. Mr. R. M. Per son, manager, will permit no one save himself to handle in any way any of the ingredients of the medi cines and of his own knowledge knows that no foreign matter gets into the medicine or remains in the bottles before being filled. The Ob server is delighted at the success of 'The Persons,' and would like to publish an even more favorable re port of the business for the coming year." ------ Saved At Death's Door. The door oT death seemed ready to open for Murray V Ayers, of Transit Bridge, N. Y., when his life was wonderfully saved. "I was in a dreadful condition," he writes, "my skin was almost yellow; eyes sunken; tongue coated; emaciated from losing 40 pounds, growing weaker daily. Virulent liver trou ble lulling me down to death in spite of doc tors. Then that matchless medicine Elec tric Hitters cured me. I regained the 40 pounds lost and now am well and strong." For all stomach, liver and kidney troubles they are supreme. 50c at Melville Dorsey's. . . Read and advertise fn Gold Xeaf. Henderson, N. C. Vy OUR.

Mention is made elsewhere of the dancing academy to be started in Henderson by Prof. W. II. Allmon. The attention of our citizens is called to this unexcelled opportunity to have their children properly taught in all departments of graceful move ments of dancing. The people and papers of Wilson, Rocky Mount. Tar boro and other places where 1'rof. Allmon has been, say that he is the best teacher of dancing who has ever visited their city. At the close of his dancing school in Tarboro the South erner said this of Prof. Allmon: Most assuredly the Tarboro people have been fortunate in Laving Prof. W. II. Allmon to instruct the children of parents whose desire is to rear them to appear with easeand grace, when thrown out into the society realms. Nothing promotes this more than being instruct ed by a master from the old school, with thirty years of experience among the highest society of our land. This claes has closed for the prewnt and the citizens look forward to tin- time when I'rof. Allmon will return to rename his work with other classes. Prof. Allmon was endorsed by a number of ladies among the leaders of society in Tarboro as he lias been elsewhere, and he hopes that he will be given an opportunity to make his work impress itself equally as favor ably in Henderson. - Memorial Adopted by the Women's Tuesday Club on the Death of Mrs. W. W. Parker. For the fourth time the Tuesday Club is called upon to give up one of it mem bers. At the last meeting Mrs. W. W. Parker was among us, apparently in tlip best of health, and in unuHiially liih spirits. Today she sleeps beneath t be sod, awaiting the Resurrection. Our lofn appals us. Where shall we find another woman with her tact, her poise, her win dom, her ability to lead and direct o;ir affairs in crises that are to come? Per sonally she was dear to us all. She possessed in a rare degree the charm that attracts and holds all heurtc The Club will do better work, and we shall be better women for her having he. n among us. The two years during which she was our President must ever remain sanctified to her memory. May n portion of her mantle fall upon us. "Warm summer sun hImho jrenth li r Winter winds blow softly li'-re. Green sod aboye lie light, lie liht . Good night, dear heart, Good uiyltt. G.oil night." This memorial being read before the Club it was ordered that it he recorded upon the minutes of this organization, that a copy be sent to the family of y deceased member, and that a ropy w also given to the (ioi.n Li:u with re quest to publish.
