You and The State. The big State of North Carolina sees fit to keep part of its money here. Because of that it keeps a very close eye on all the workings of this Bank. Naturally this Bank would have to be run on conservative lines, because of such examination, but even if the State didn't look after our business, the character of . our direc tors would insure every one patronizing us the fullest safety.

The play is adapted from the popular novel of the same name and deals with the love of a young Americau and a Princess.

"Graustark" proved to be the sensataion of the country when first presented in Pittsburg a year ago, and is today one of the most talked of plays on the Ameri can stage. Letter from Chapel Hill. To the Gold Leaf. Chapel Hill, N. C, March 14, 1'JlO. Dr. Fben Alexander, Dean 6Tthe Uni versity of North Carolina, died in Knox ville, Tenn., last Friday. He was on a Uave of absence from the University and was spending the time at his old home in Knoxville. Dr. Alexander was born in Knoxville. March 0, 1851. He eutered Yale in lHC'J. While there he was one of the most popular and prominent mem bers of the Class of 1873. He was a member of Psi Upsilum, the Honor Order of Skull and Itones, and the schol arship society of Phi beta Kappa. After graduating he became tuter in the University of Tennessee, later pro fessor of ancient languages and then chairman of the faculty. He gave up this position to become professor of Greek at the University of North Carolina in 1887. In 18U3 President Cleveland appointed him envoy extraordinary and minister plenipotentiary to Ureece.lCoumama and Servia. His service as minister were commended by leading newspapers in dreece and America. One of the many good things that he did was to have a part in the revival of the great Olympic Games. 'It is a far cry from the Acropolis to a professor's chair at Chapel Hill," 6ays bis kinsman, l'rof. b. 1. Moses, in Ashe s tiographical History, '"but when his term of office expired the diplomat gladly put aside the business of the na tion to take up again his work for the young men of North Carolina." In 181)7 he left the Greek Court to return to his duties here. In lOUOhe was elected Dean of the University, a position which he has since held with great honor. He was buried Sunday afternoon in Knox ville. Saturday all exercises in the Uni versity were suspended in honor of this scholar, diplomat and teacher. A vigorous evangelistic campaign was conducted in the University last week from Wednesday through Sunday by four representatives of the International ommittee of the i. M. V. A., YV. L). Weatherford, W. B. Willis, E. C. Mercer and Clayton S. Cooper. JVeatherford and Willis are student secretaries of the South. Mercer is the man who has been telling the story of his life in the Univer sities of America. A graduate of the University of Virginia, son of a promi nent Alabamian, with plenty of money and bright prospects in life, E. C. Mercer drifted into a dissolute life in New York City and soon sank to the lowest depths of New lork s degraded life, so low as to steal the ring from his wife's finger o pawn for drink. He happened by chance into the Jerry JlcAuley Jlission, and like many another man in the .New York gutter, he was influenced by the Jli8ion to become a changed man. It is the story of this life and the powrer of Christ to save that Mercer is telling in the American Colleges to-day. Cooper is the head of the Student Bible Study work in the world. Under his direction d uring the last four years the Bible Study enrollmentin the Colleges of America has grown from 12,000 to over o0,UU0. 'ooper is a man of splenaid intellectual gifts and makes- a tremendous appeal to college men to study the Bible. In the University to-day are .580 men yolua- tarny enrolled in Itible classes. C. 11. Mcintosh and 1-. i. Cox won out in the contest for places on the team to represent Carolina in the thirtieth inter collegiate debate with tlu University of Georgia. This will be held in Chapel Hill the night of April the eighth. The same night and with the same question and with the same side Carolina meets Washington and bee.

We wish to remind advertisers that copy for change of advertise ments in the Gold Leaf should be in this office not latr than Tuesday at noon of the week that it is to be in serted.

The question of good roads is one of the most, if not toe most, important that has ever come before the citizens of Vance county. It is a problem that has b?en discussed far and wide by the best and ablest men of this and other countries, and is still an unsolved problem today. We all have our ideas as to the survey aud construction of public hiehways. and while it is true that we differ some what bj to where we should run or how we should build a certain road, there is no doubt in my mind about our get ting together and coming to au agree ment in a short while, without any hard feelingB toward any one, and soon have a road that will be a profit and a pleas ure to the whole community if w e only had the money to build it with. Now, that we haye agreed a to that point, we want to say just a few -words about the money part of it. .o doubt all ol us nave noticed that all cities have good roads, streets we usually call them, and upon first sight we think the valuable property and prosperous business caused or certainly helped them to get their beautiful streets. We will notice the larger the city and the more valuable the property the longer, more substantial and beautiful the streets. This we all know to be true, but why is it? It is because the people neighborly located meet often, and at all their meetings, as well as in their private conversations, they never fail to discuss and plan how to make their business more profitable and their property more valuable. Now, what have they found and how have they answered these questions? Theyjiave found to make their places of business more attractive, in order to get trade, the most profitable investment they could possibly make was to put their money in public property, such as streets, sidewalks, parks, etc., etc. Now if this has proven to be a profitable aud wise investment for the merchant, the banker, and even the office man up in the top of a teu story building who has never owned a horse or buggy, or never bad anything heavier than a barrel of flour hauled to his place of abode, then why is it not a good investment for the farmer and other property owners of the country who have to haul their cot ton, tobacco, guano and everything else, not two or three blocks as the man of the city, but from one to five miles over roads that you can hardly lead a horse? Why is it that we country people, after such "proof as the city has given, are afraid to invest in the building of good roads? And I don't believe we are, we just have not taken the time to think what it means to us. Now let us get to gether and decide this question, that means so much to every man, woman and child in this county, by going down into our jeans, by voting an issue of bonds for the necessary amount to build good roads all over the Vance county. A CITIZEN OF VANCE. $100 Reward, $100. The readers of this paper will be pleased to learn that there is at least one dreaded dis ease that Bcienee has been able to cure in all its stages, and that is Catarrh. Hall's Ca tarrh Cure is the only positive cure now known to the medical fraternity. Catarrh being a constitutional disease, requires a constitutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh Cure is taken internally, acting directly upon the blood and mucus surfaces of the system, thereby destroying the foundation of the disease, and ffiving the patient strength by building up the constitution and assisting nature in doing its work. The proprietors have so much faith in its curative powers that they offer One Hundred Dollars for any case that it fails to cure. Send for testimo nials. Address: F.J. CHENEY & CO., Toledo, O.
