The Northern blizzard and snow storm that had New York Citv grip ped in its embrace a few davs ago, did not hit us very hard. But we had quite enough to satisfy us. There are some things we do not want just because others have it. Mr. R. S. McCoin returned Tuesday afternoon from Richmond where be has been for several weeks at a hos pital undergoing treatment. His friends are gratified at his improved condition and hope he will soon be restored to perfect health again. After spending the holidays with relatives and friends in Henderson, Mr. and. Mrs. I). M. Dunlop have gone to Rosemary to spend awhile with Mr. and Mrs. C.A.Wjche. They will also visit in Petersburg and Rich mond before returning to their home in Baltimore. Married, at the home of Mr. B. B. Collins, father of the bride, on Janu ary 10th, 1910, Mr. George Wheeler and Miss Nannie E. Collins, all of Henderson. Rev. Jere Reeves per formed the ceremony, only a few im mediate friends and members of the family being present. As will be seen by advertisement to that effect published elsewhere, the time for opening bids for the con struction of the new government (postoffice) building in Henderson, has been extended from January 17th to February 18th. Opportuni ty is yet offered to put in bids by per sons who may wish to do so. Mrs. D. Y. Cooper attended the ex ercises incident to the opening of the industrial building of the Stonewall Jackson Manual Training and Indus trial fecnool.and the reception to Mr. and Mrs. Roth, at Concord last week. Mrs. Cooper is one of the trustees and takes a lively interest in whatever concerns this institution. Just as we expected would be the case, contract for constructing the new government (postoffice) building was not awarded last Monday. Ac cording to advertisement, bids were to be opened on the 17th, but for some cause which must be good and sufficient to the Dowers that be in Washington, the time has been ex tended to February 18th.

Perhaps they -did the best they could with the material thev had. but the "high salaried vaudeville ar tists"did notshow up in the perform ance of The Strollers at the Grand Theatre Friday night, as advertised.

As will be seen by advertisement in Want Column, a traveling man own ing residence in Greensboro, desires to exchange same for one of equal value in Henderson. Reasons for wishing to exchange is that he has changed his business and covering the territory he will have hereafter it will be more convenient to travel out of Henderson. If interested address Box 618, Greensboro, N. C. Moved Place of Business. Burwell H. Bullock gives notice that he has moved next to Kerner- MacNair's drug store (Muscovitz's old stand) where he will continue the fish and oyster business as hereto fore.

Shipments are made every morning as the fish are taken right out of the water, and satisfaction is guaranteed as to freshness. Home on a Visit. Mr. and Mrs. W. G. Sneed came from High Point Wednesday to spend a lew days with their people in this county. Mr. Sneed is princi- fal lis al of one ot the erraded schools in h Point, and as some cases of small pox have developed in the community it was thought best to suspend the schools and abandon the assembling of promiscuous -crowds in public places for awhile. Pending his enforced idleness, Mr. Sneed im proved the opportunity to come home and is now at his father s (Mr. P. B. Sneed's) in the Williamsboro neighborhood. Dancing Academy. Mr. W. H. Allmon of Rockingham. N. C, is here for the purpose of or ganizing a dancing class and will open tonight in the armory of the Vance Guards, (old Cooper Opera House.) fle has met with consider able encouragement and expects to start with a good attendance. Mr. Allmon has had large experience in this line of work and comes highly endorsed as to his character, fitness and proficiency in teaching the art of dancing, grace, ease and natural ness, lie has instructed classes at Chapel Hill and is laown to some of our young men. 1 he children s class will start at 3 o'clock Saturday afternoon. Parents are especially invited to be present at tnat time il possible. Rare Musical Treat Indeed. The entertainment given by. the Eight VassarGirls at the Grand The atre last Friday night, was a "top notcher" in every particular. Hen derson has never had anything finer ot tne Kina. ine company is con-f -posed of talented and accomplished young ladies, each one an adapt at E laying on not only one but several inds of -musical instruments, and the performance was of a very high order. The program consisted of in stumental music with vocal selec tions. The instruments used were piano, saxaphones, cornets, trom bones, clarionets, flageolets, violin, etc. Henderson music lovers have had the pleasure of enjoying some excellent attractions, as good as they have anywhere, but without doubt the concert given by these clever performers last Friday even ing must be numbered among the best if not the most delightful, yet provided.

J.V.Stmms, Publisher of the Ral eigh Times, to Begin Publication of New Paper to be Called the Header, son Times, About the First of Feb ruary. 1 "We had an agreeable call last Thursday from Mr. J. V. Simms, publisher of the Raleigh Evening Times, the object of whose visit to Henderson is explained in the article printed below which appeared in the Times of Friday. Mr. Simms is a young man of energy, enterprise and ability, and as a newspaper man i.f has made good, nis success with the Raleigh Times in pulling it out of the slough of financial despond and mak ing it a paying proposition has been a signal achievement in newspaper annals of the capital city, and if any one can "turn the trick" here or else where in a similar undertaking we take it vaat Mr. Simms can. At any rute the Go,ld Leaf gives him cor dial welcome and extends the hand ot fraternal greeting aqd good wishes in advance of his coming.- ' The article in question follows: Mr. J. V. Simms, publisher of The Even ing Times, spent yesterday in Hender son, where he is arranging to open a new paper about February 1st. . Aftef his return today he said: "Yes, I am making plans and arrange ments to open up an office in Henderson and publish a new weekly paper there. I have secured some nice offices on the second floor of the postoffice building and this will give me a very desirable location, in fact it ia the very best and most convenient to all the business sec tion of Henderson. I am now negotia ting with a eood man for editor and manager and if I secure him I hope to be gin this paper by February 1st. It is my intention to begin an eight page weekly, with full telegraph and State news and all the local news of Henderson and the surrounding section. The paper will he known ae The Henderson Times and if it's a success will be made a semi-weekly and improved as the conditions demand. Henderson is a live and growing young city, and is in one of the finest sections in the State, and I believe a live, progres ei ve paper that will boost the town will be a good proposition." Personal. Passing through on his way to Jacksonville, Fla.,to spend awhile in rest and recreation, Mr. Louis Mead or of Richmond, stopped over and spent last night with the family of Mr. J ohn B. W atkins. Mr. Meador for merly lived in Henderson and is well remembered by many of our citizens. His father was at one time engaged in the mercantile business here a member of the firm of 'Knight . & Meador and both father and 6on have many friends among our peo ple. Louis, as he ia still familiarly known by his friends here has added years to his age if not inches to his stature since he left and is now a married man with a family and is do ing well, holding a responsible posi tion with one of the largest mercan tile houses in Richmond. Best for coughs and colds is Kennedvs's Laxative Cough Syrup. It moves the bowels freely yet gently and thereby drives the cold from the system. It stops the cough. Chil dren like it pleasant to take. Sold by all Druggists. "Parsifal" Was Great. If Manager Poythress does not give us anything better this season be can afford to rest on the laurels won Tuesday night by "Parsifal." A stronger play has not been seen in Henderson. It was superb, elaborate ly staged and strongly acted an ad mirable production throughout. The scenery was beautiful, the electrical effects unique, the costumes pretty and appropriate. Messrs. Martin & Lmery promised much in ''Parsifal," and they, met every expectation. It is a great pro duction splendidly presented by a strong acting company. The cast is well selected aud nicely balanced, each performer seemingly peculiarly htted for .his or her part, and il one apparently does the better work and wins the greater iavor it is because ot the wider range for histrionic display or the more pleasing character he has rather than to the truer concep tion or more faithful portrayal of the role essayed. . While all were good the work oi Mr. John Rigney as Parsifal, Mr. Barrett as Klinschor, Mr. Herbert as Dwerger, an Impish servant of the Klinschor, Mr. Sloman asAnfortas, Mr. Roth, Mr. Grauman and Miss Anna May as Kundry, was exception ally fine. Their acting would be dif ficult to improve upon. The audience was not what the production merited. Rain no doubt kept a good many persons away, but we are sure if. they had realized the very unusual treat they missed it would have required more than rain and wind and reasonable distance to deprive them of it. About iio or 40 persons came Irom Oxford whereas it was expected that 80 or 100 would come. The rain in terfered and the small number of- tickets sold did not justify the run ning of a special train to take them back. Those who came spent the night in Henderson. The greatest danger from influenza is o its resulting in pneumonia. J bis can be obviated by using Chamberlain's Cough Itemedy, as it not only cures influenza, but counteracts any tendency of the disease to wards pneumonia.
