THE HEN D EKSON GOLD JLEAF THURSDAY, DECEMBEIi I, 1910.
The Gold Leaf. ! ESTABLISHED 1881. BY THAD R. MANNING. HDRSDAY, DECEMBER 1, 1910. Ax exchange heads an article "The Coming South." Aa if the Sooth hadn't already "came." The Durham Herald is wondering who is going to be the Justice of the incoming Legislature. It is to be hoped that there is not going to be any. This gentle reminder and considerate admonition romes from the fireens boro News: Christmas is the next station; don't forget your bundles. Do voru best work this year and you will have more things for which to give thanks next year. Thus says the Wilmington Star and it is a good motto to adopt in the upbuild ing of Henderson. Let ua co-operate in all things that mean for the gen eral good and work together for community interest as we hare never done before. In the report made by Brigadier General W. II. Bixby, Chief of En gineers of the United States . Array, appropriations needed for river and harbor work for the fiscal year end ing June W), 1012, aggregate ?-i0,-093,GOH. Of this the amount ap portioned to North Carolina is as follows: Improvement of the inland water route from Norfolk, Va., to Albemarle Sound, $2,000; Beaufort harbor, $3,000; Cape Fear river, at and below "Wilmington $100,000; Contentnia creek $1,000; Neuse and Trent rivers $3,000; New River and waterways to Beaufort 3,000;North east, Black and Cape Fear rivers, .-V 500; Pamilico and Tar rivers, $3,000. The Times-Dispatch makes no mistake in assuming that the quips and quirks interchanged between this paper and the News-Courier betoken neither jealousy nor enmity on our part towards Charleston's aspira tions as a raval station and com mercial post. Our little jokes are but the nature of love-taps and we would forbpnr them if there seemed to be the slightest danger that they would be taken for other than they are. Norfolk Virginian-Pilot. Here is one of the "love-taps" to which the Virginian-Pilot refers, and we are sure that no one who keeps tab on these two bright newspapers can find any "sting" in their sharp thrusts at each other: Charleston has more banks than any other city of its size in the world. News-Courier. Chief of which is the mud bank at the harbor mouth, barring ingress and egress to craft of all kinds, save only the fishing smack and the air ship. President Taft in Richmond. 1 tie limes-Dispatch editorially ays this of President Taft's visit last wek: Mr. Taft's visit to Richmond will long be remembered by the people of tins community, lie came on a good mission, not as the guest of the City or State, but as the friend of educa tion in all its branches, and the mes sage he delivered made a profound im pression on the five thousand teach ers who heard him and honored him for his service. The reception and entertainment or the President while he was here was all the more enjoy able because it was lacking iu the conventionalities oT official etiquette, the simple greeting of his friends and aumirers to the Man as well as to the President. There was no talk of politics or political questions, no suggestion that he other than of the people with whom he mingled, no claim other than that having been born in Ohio he was a Virginian, and being a Virginian therefore a South ern man. It was all very nice, or, to quote the saying of an eminent person, "fine, tine, fine." Free GovernmentjSeeds. We are requested to announce that an persons in the fourth Congres eional district who wish government seeds may obtain the same by drop pmg a postal card to Congressman l-award . Pou, A ashinsrtou. D. ( Persons who made requests for seeds last year need not take the trouble to write again as Mr. Pou already has their names and will see that they receive an allotmeut of seeds Mr. Pou is endeavoring to get the names 01 those persons only who can use the seeds furnished bv the government. He is- not (Sending them indiscriminately. By this means he is able to send a larger quantity to each person intending to plant a garden, and thereby pre vent waste. A single package of seed is such a triflinur Quantity that the average person hardly cares to re ceive it, and it is a useless compliment-to send seeds to "a person who has no garden. ,- Mr. Pou's plan is a good one. If 4 you want the seed drop him a pos tal, uuless you wrote to him last year. If you did that you need not write again. DIDN'T BREAK RECORD. Now it is announced that J. Arm strong Drexel did not break the world' record for altitude in an aero plane in his flight in Philadelphia last week, as published. It is an nounced officially that Drexel's per formance does not constitute the world's record. It was originally stated that he ascended 9,970 feet, but a careful reading of the barograph shows that he went only 9,450 feet. Johnstone's record of 9,714 feet still stands.

Fifteen thous and people witnessed it. Everybody was satisfied, even the brave fellows from Chapel Hill, who went down, but went down fighting as they had never fought before. It turned out exactly as we expected, although we did not know a thing about it and do not really know how it was done. But it was done, and that is the main point. The feature of the game was the frixty-six-yard run by Todd, left half back of the Virginians, who made the only touchdown of the day, and made it in epite of the unfriendly in terference of the fellow who tackled him when he was doing this brilliant turn. The play lasted two nours or more, and it was worth the money to tho.se who like that sort of thing. Of course, the experts in "mumble eg" ana "Antony over ana ring around the rosy" and grab bag excitements did not take it in ana would not admit that it was up to the old plays; but the etrong men who were there, and the girls who were there, and the girls who cheered or both pides without knowing why they should have cheered for either, say that it was the finest thing that 1 1 A "I- 1 ever Happened on trie griuiron in these parts. It was all so different rom baseball, which some people of vitiated taste like best, and it went with a rush when it went at all, and kept on going, as noted, for two nours or more, mere was some left-handed" or ".bone-headed" (take whatever term you please, as we do not know what either means) work, ut it turned out well for the Uni I versity of lrginia, and that was glory enough till the next time, when the Chapel Hill fellows may have earned to play a little bit better than they played yesterday. The Sporting Editor says that the game was decent, clean, according to the rules, and as only one of the play ers was Hurt at an, ana tnac not seriously, and everybody was in good humor, it may be said that it might mve been a great deal worse, lleally the best thing about it was that it brought the people out and packed them together, and that is always worth doing in Richmond, where the people are so nice. Sousa'a Band at Raleigh. An announcement which will be re ceived with favorable comment is made bv the Academy of Music at Italeigh. It is to the effect hat John Phillip Sousa and his I5and of sixty musicians will give a concert in the capital city on Saturday night. December 10th. It might also be mentioned thatbouea will render only ten concerts in the en tire South this season and to think that Raleigh will get one of the number is ndeed good news. Music lovers of Hen- ! derson will no doubt avail themselves of this opportunity of hearing the Greatest ISand in the world, and this can truth fully be said of Sousa's Band and this famous composer, who is always favor ably remembered lor his lovely marches, and who has been rightly named the March King and hat appeared before all of the crowned heads of Europe. This season Sousa had no idea of making a Southern trip but was forced nto same on account of the very tempt ng offer which Mr. S. A. Hchloss, lessee of the Academy of Music at Raleigh, gave in the way of a personal guarantee, it was a large guarantee too because Sousa draws more money for his con certs than any other two bands playing in the Lnited States today. After the concert at Raleigh the hand leaves on special train for Washington, 1). ('. lhen they go to .sew lork from which place they sail on December lith for an extended tour of the world. Ihe soloists accompanying Sousa's Hand on its short tour of the South will be Mr. Herbert. L. Clark, cornetist, and Miss Zedeler, soprano. Mail orders for seats should be sent to Mr. Man S. Nathan. Manager Academy of Music, accompanied by I'. O. Order, or Kipress Money Order. Sale of seats will open lbursday, De cember 8th, at Tucker Ruilding Phar macy, Raleigh. . m o . Delightful Evening With Mr. and Mrs. George Harris. Contributed. On Thanksgiving evening invited guests assembled at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Geo. B. Harris to enjoy the hospitables and festivities of the season. It is known to a few of his friends that Mr. Harris fasts practically each sum mer, but in autumn and winter, especially the part thereof represented by this Thanksgiving make up for lost time. Jovial, social and intellectual conversa tions furnished the feast of reason, while the choicest foods to be had, tempted and satisfied the appetites of all. Then there was a cracking of real nuts filled with poetic bonmots, of which each guest was to know and name the author, which was greatly enjoyed. This was followed by delivery to each guest of a card decorated with his or her history and future in pictures and caricature. Each saw at a glance at his or her pic ture their history, present and future. The hits and tits were happy and ap propriate, and each and all were better able thereafter to "see ourselves as others see us." On the whole it was a difficult question to determine whether the joy ful companionship and1 humor, the de licious and seasonable viands or the intellectual divertisement furnished most pleasure. All together the occasion was most happv. Nov. ;.-, 1910. II. What To Do FOR Sickly Children Letters from Mothers " I wish I could induce every mother, who has a dedicate,' sickly child,to try your delicious Cod Liver and Iron Tonic V IN'OL. It re stored our little daughter to health and strength after everything else had failed." Mrs. C. V. Stump, Canton, Ohio. Mrs. F. P. Skonnard, of -Minneapolis, Minn., writes, '-I want to recommend VINOL to every moth er who has a weak or sickly child. My little boy was sickly, pale, and had no appetite for two years. I tried different medicines and doc tors without benefit, but thanks to VINOL, he is a w ell and healthy boy to-day." C Allen, of New Bedford, Mass., writes, "My two punychildren gained . rapidly in flesh and strength in a very short time after taking VINOL." We positively know.
