WHITE GOODS, LAWNS AND SUESINE SILKS. A PRETTY LINE OF Ready-Made Comonas for Summer. MRS. MISSIIX1 Sermon to Odd Fellows. Inclemency of the weather kept many away from tbe Baptist church on Wednesday evening of last week when Rev. T.j. Taylor of Warrenton, preached a special sermon to the Odd Fellows. Meeting at the lodge room the Odd Fellows went in a body to the church, the only regret being that the number was not much larger. Those who did not hear Dr. Taylor were the losers. In well chosen words Rev. J. R. Doan, the pastor, presented Dr. Taylor (he needs no introduction to a Hender son congregation). The text was taken from the 13th chapter of He brews, a part of the 1st verse: "Let brotherly love cotinue," being the cen t ral t hough t of the d iscou ree. 1 1 was a splendid effort, an uplifitingdis course, that was thoroughly enjoyed by those who heard it. Dr. Taylor is a member of the Hen derson lodge having transferred his membership two or three years ago when his lodge surrendered its char ter, but had never been in the. lodge here. After tbe services at the church he visited the lodge and was accorded a warm welcome by the brethren. He had to make a talk of course "for the good of the order" and the edification of the members present, and there were brief remarks from others all expressive of tho ap preciation of Dr. Taylor's visit and the pleasure and inspiration derived from his sermon and his commingling with kindred spirits in the lodge room. Military Company Elects New Of ficers. The Vance Guards, Company C, has recently undergone a change in the personnel of its officers. Contem plating removal to another town Captain B. F. Payne resigned and this was followed by similar action on the part of other officers of the company. A new election was held with the following result: Captain, William H. Wester, Jr. r irst Lieutenant, Richard J. Jones. Second Lieutenant, Perry Rose. First Sergeant, W H. Jenkins, Jr. ! Second Sergeant, Ed G. Royster. Third Sergeant, J. J.

If your Stomach, Heart, or Kidneys are weak, try at least, a fpw doses only of Dr. Shoop's Restorative. In five or ten days only, the result will surpnso you. A few cents will cover the cost. And here is why help comes so quickly. Dr. Snoop doesn't drupr the Stomach, nor stimulate the Heart or Kidneys. Dr. Shoop's Kestorative goes directly to the weak and failing nerves. Each organ has its own controlling nerve. When these nerves fail, the depending organs must of necessity falter. This plain yet vital truth, clearly tells why Dr. Shoop'1 Restorative is so universally successful. Its success is leading druggists everywhere to give it universal preference.

The Henderson Graded Schools closed Friday. The term was short ened this year on account of lack of funds. A debt that hid been run ning for 8ome time had to be paid and the only means of doing this without borrowingmoney was to cut the term short and apply the funds Hint should have gone to the teach ers salaries, &c, to this object. The exercises held at the Central School Friday morning were very in teresting indeed, creditable alike to pupils and teachers. There were eight graduates in the High School department. After -the invocation and chorus, "Hail to the Land," the reading of the essays was next on the program, as follows: Salutatory Miss Christine Thomas Clara History Miss Lottie Keller Class Oddities Miss Gertrude Harris Class Poem Miss Maggie Finch Class Will Miss Clara Finch Onr Gems Miss Mary Lee Hight Class Prophecy Miss Florence Butler Valedictory Miss Mary Butler The papers were all good and the young ladies were highly compli mented upon thr excellence of thought and theme and manner in which they read them. The reading of the essays was fol lowed by more singing by the school, "Rockin Time," and "Pickaninny Lullaby," and the declaimer's medal won by Master Rowland Rankin, was presented by Mr. B. H. Perry. This medal offered by Mayor Henry T. Powell for the best declamation, was strongly contested for the fight be tween the young oratorical gladia tors eliciting considerable interest and enthusiasm. There were six con testants. Presentation of certificates was made by Mr. D. Y. Cooper and Rev. I. W. Hughes delivered the address. It was a happy and felicitous effort, ornate in style and pleasing in man ner, and Mr. Hughes showed himself to be as apt and eloquent on occa sions of this kind as he is forceful and logical in the pulpit.

Eleventh Annual Convention of the North Carolina Federa tion of Women's Clubs Con---venes in Henderson. OPENING SESSION TUESDAY NIGHT. Meetings Held la Court House Which Is Packed With Brilliant Assemblage Between Seventy-five and One Hundred Delegates in Attendance. The eleventh annual convention of the North Carolina Federation of Women's Cluba convened in Hender son Tuesday. Between seventy -five and one hundred delegates are in at tendance. Many of the State's moat gifted women grace the occasion. Mrs. Eugene Iteilly of Charlotte, president, is presiding. And no one could occupy the chair with more grace of manner, perfect poise and fine spirit. At 2:00 P. M. an elegant luncheon was given to the Executive Board by Mrs. S. P. Cooper, at her home. This was followed by a business meeting of the Executive Board at 3:30, and at 8:30 the opening session was held in the court house, which had been beau tifully decorated for tbe occasion. It was r brilliant scene that delighted theeye and charmed the senses. Hand some women exquisitely gowned, visitors and home folks vieing with each other to do honor to the occa sion, it was a picture of beauty and loveliness unsurpassed. The invocation by Rev. R. C. Cra ven was apt and feeling. Thia was followed by singing "Carolina," and Mayor Henry T. Powell delivered the address of welcome. He turned over to theconventionthe key to the homes and hearts of the people of Henderson bidding the visitors to walk in and take possession and con duct things to suit themselves. In this he was most felicitous his re marks being flavored with humor and the warmth of cordiality charac teristic of the people for whom he spoke. Mrs. J. T. Alderman, who was for two years president of the State Federation, extended a welcome from the Henderson Clubs, her address being one of the gems of the evening in thought, words and manner of delivery. Greetings also came from the va rious other clubs of the town, Mrs. S. P. Cooper speaking for the Wo men's Tuesday Club, Miss Birdie Wat son the Student's Club, Miss Rebec ca Watkins the Alma Club, Mrs. F. R. Harris the Kensington Club. These were all admirable in conception and presentation and the ladies easily proved themselves as gifted in speech before a mixed audience as they are irresistible in the drawing room or parlor. Mrs. C. C. Hook of Charlotte, re sponded to the welcome addresses on the part of the Federation of Clubs, and right well did she discharge theob ligation laid upon her. Expressed in beautiful words and spoken with an ease ana grace oi manner rareiy equaled Mrs. Hook captivated the audience. A fine paper was the president's address read by Mrs. Reilly. Full of fine sentiment and wise suggestion. expressive of nigh purpose anu ofty ideals, taking encouragement of things done nnd things hoped for and pointing the way to still greater achievement in the future, Mrs. Reilly's address was an able produc tion reflecting high credit upon the charming and brilliant woman who is the head of this splendid organiza tion of brilliant and charming women At the conclusion of the reading of the president's address greetings from Fraternal Organizations were announced as next, number on the program. Mrs. W. H. S. Burgwyn of Weldon, spoke for the Kings Daughters. Mrs. Burgwyn was ac corded an ovation when she arose. Just as the applause seemed to lull it was renewed with increased spon taneity as she advanced to the front. The demonstration was an unusual honor paid to a woman but it was more than that, it was a tribute of love and admiration paid to a good woman one who has been instant in all good works and whose presence on any occasion gives pleasure to her friends. Mrs. Burgwyn was visibly affected for the moment, her suffused cheeks and hesitating manner plain ly showing the commingled feelings of appreciation and embarrassment that she felt. Modest woman that she is she could not find words to ex press her emotions but the Gold Leaf is privileged to speak for her and say that it was through no lack of thought or feeling that she did not tell her mends how deeply touched she was by this manifestation of their kindly consideration and friendship and assure them of her grateful appreciation. Mrs. Burgwyn formerly lived in Henderson, and here she was at home among friends, but she is no less among friends and admirers wherever she goes in North Carolina. . Mre. J. B. Williams of Newton, spoke for the Daughters of the Con federacy, and told of some of the things that organization is doing for the living as well as perpetuating the memory of the dead. She spoke with earnestness and patriotic spirit and was generously applauded. Mrs. Williams ia the daughter of the late Gen. Robert Ransom and in speech shows much of the fervor and manner of her distinguished father. The social feature of the evening was a reception given by the Hender son Clubs at the residence of Mrs. R. J. Corbitt, immediately after ad journment of the convention. This was a most delightful anair ana was greatly enjoyed by those who at tended, numbering hundreds of visi tors and residents of the town. Here owing to circumstances which are unavoidable we have to close without giving an account of ednesday a proceedings, tbe elegant luncheon by the Woman's Tuesday and Kensington Clubs at tne resi dence of Mrs. A. C. Zollicoffer, and the reception to Mre. Eugene Reilly by Mrs. D.
