All persons interest ed will take notice and be governed accordingly. Master Fran ms Harris, little son of Mrs. Carrie Harris, fell from the sec ond story of Mr. V. B. AVaddill'snew building in the Western part of town last week and broke his left arm be low the elbow. It was a narrow es cape from more serious injury and the little fellow is counted fortunate to have gotten off so lightly. Climb-, inr about on the upper structure he fell through the chimney hole to th ground below, the injury to his arm being caused by striking some ob struction in falling. You will observe the chancre and style of the advertisement of the vatkins Hardware Company which appears on the first page of the Gold Leaf this week without having your attention called to it we are sure. There is humor and good nature in the face of the "yellow kid," and he will present himself inadifferent pose and have something new to say every week. Observe the "yellow kid and act upon his advice and you will profit thereby, both in purse and feeling. "Home Canning of Fruits aud Veg etables" is the title of the May bul letin issued by the State Department of Agriculture, which contains valu able information useful to house wives at this particular season. A postal card addressed to the State Department of Agriculture, Kaleigh, will bring this valuable bulletin to your address. It Is well worth pro curing and if the advice therein con tained about canning and preserving fruits is acted upon there will be bet ter living and better conditions in the homes of our people in consequence. Personal. We had an agreeable call this morning from Mr. T. II. Ellis representing The Maryland Shows, which will exhibit in Henderson all of next week. Mr. Ellis is half owner of these attractions four in number and assures us of their meri torious character. Clean, moral, free from graft atid gambling features is what the press and public say of them where they have been, iney come nere from Winston-Salem, where they have been exhibiting with great success and satisfaction. One of the features of The Maryland Shows is the music. They have a splen did band, beautifully uniformed and every member is said to be a skilled musician master of the instrument, or 'instru ments, he nlavs. The regret is that they cannot reach Henderson in time to give a sacred concert Sunday afternoon, at Railroad Square or some other suitable place, but there will be open air concerts on Main Street every day during the week to which the public is invited. fVer pl-iee: Ilews Wia, are Psion to know where they can nimble articles at the right An advertisement Isbusiness that appeals to everybody.

Cooper Entertains in Honor of Mrs. S. R. Chavasse. Contributed. Mrs. D. Y.

Catarrh Cannot Be Cured with LOCAL APPLICATIONS, as they can not reach the seat of the disease. Catarrh is a blood or constitutional disease, and in order to cure it you muft take internal rem edies. Hall's Catarrh Cure is taken internal ly, and acts directly on the blood and mu cous surfaces. Hall's Catarrh Cure is not a quack medicine. It was prescribed by one of the best physicians in this country for years and is a regular prescription. It is composed of the best tonics known, combined with the best blood purifiers, acting directly on the mucous surfaces. The perfect combination of the two ingredients is what produces such wonderful results in curing tatarrr. end for testimonials free. F. J. CHENEY & CO., Props., Toledo, O.

"THE LADIES' STORE." 16 Button Length Blue and Pink GLOVES. Half Price. Also Nice Line OF KIMONAS. Very Cheap. MRS. MISSILLIER. Publication of Summons. When the female constituency among Gold Leaf readers saw Mrs.. Missillier's advertisement last week we suspect there were conjectures as to what new thing she had discover ed in women's wear, if there was not a stampede for-"The Ladies' Store" to see them. She was advertising something that had never been heard of before 1G button length blouses. But if Mrs. Missiilier had them they must be all right the latest thing out and there were those who would have them. One might as well be well, dead as to be out of style and if a new fashion was out who wanted to be without it? So there were en quiries about the 1G button length blouses Mrs. Missiilier was advertis ing. Imagine the consternation from "Scott Parker's double" down to-the delivery boy and the disap pointment of would-be purchasers in consequence. Nothing of the kind had been ad- vernseu intentionally. ltie "wise guy" who answers the telephone in the Gold Leaf office had got it as "blouses" instead of "gloves." And so it was written, both in the adver tisement and local notice calling at attention thereto. Bat the editor claims immunity from responsibility because he does not pretend to keep up with the fashions. They change frequently and h? did not know but what some new fangled idea had been introduced in 16 button length blouses. He knows that boys wear blouses, some times without any but tons at all, and why not the women with 1G buttons. or any number they wish, more or less, since they are privileged characters? Then, too, he was perfectly confident that if there was anything new, pretty, stylish and becoming to the dear women Mrs. Missiilier would have it. LIABILITIES.

Augelo Hamilton Electrocuted. Angelo Hamilton was put to death in the electric chair in the Virginia penitentiary last Friday morning, for the murder of Mrs. Sallie Hixs, every human effort bating been ex hausted in his behalf to save htm from the penalty of his crime. Both Hamilton and Mrs. Hixs lived in Henderson at one time and worked in a cotton mill here. It seems. that Hamilton was a dissolute and reck less fellow, but a good workman when sober. He soon lost his job here on account of drinking. When he went away he induced Mrs. Hicks to go with him and in June o! last year he shot and killed her at Lynch burg, Va., for which crime be was con victed of murder in the first degree. Jealousy was the cause of the shoot ing Hamilton claiming that he was drunk at the time and the killing was accidental. He was tried three times a conviction following each trial, and granted respites six different times by Gov. Swanson and Gov. Mann. As stated already Hamilton s de fense was that the shooting was ac cidental, but thecourts didn't so find, and after respiting the man several times and carefully investigating the case, the former and the present gov ernor in each instance refused to intervene and commute the sentence, declaring that the evidence was ud sufficient and that the story told by John Armstrong, the only living wit ness who agreed with Hamilton that the shooting was accidental, was in convincing and .improbable. Arm strong is also known in Henderson, but there are not many who believe the story he told about the matter. Instead of appearing as a witness in behalf of his friend he kept out of the way until Hamilton was convic ted and then talked claiming that he was afraid if he appeared as a wit ness he would be implicated in the matter himself. Hamilton left relatives in Durham, and claimed that.eity as his home. The body was taken there for burial. The Durham Herald says this: Hamilton left two sisters, one liv ing in Durham and one in Greens boro, also a brother. He has lived here and the poor fellow appeared to have been born for trouble. Leaving his wife for a strange woman, he be came involved in a brawl that result ed in murder. The prisoner did not in his confession, make complaint against the law. It was offered as a last resource, that he was drunk and the killing was an accident. He did not claim that degree of guiltlessness He admitted too that his penalty was just. Hamilton was a boyish looking fel low about twenty-seven years of age and of small stature. He leaves a wife and two children who are in Hender son. The wife has ceased to be con cerned about him, though she did ex press a hope that thegovernor might stay the execution indefinitely. The crime for which Hamilton was electrocuted was committed in Lynch burg, Va., June 13, 1909. Hamilton had been infatuated with the woman and she had sought to free herself from him. On that night she went to a dance. Hamilton followed her to the hall. On the way home a quar rel ensued and Hamilton shot and killed her.
