THE HLENDEltSON GOLD LEAF THURSDAY, JANUARY ID, 1911.
The Gold Leaf. ESTABLISHED 1881. - nY TH AD R. MANNING. THURSDAY, JANUARY 10, 1911. FROM THE EDITOR. Mr. Manning VVriUs Cheerfully and Says He is (Jetting on Very WH. I understand that some of my frii'iidn are very much concerned about my condition. It is pleasing to know ttint I have their intenst and sympathy, but I bg 1he:n to U of good cheer e von as I am. Under th" kindly rare of this splendid insti tution and the skillful treatment of mydodor, I am g"tt ing m1 .ng very well. The hospital is a new experience to rne, hut I am not chafing under the affliction. Indred, it is a good place to ,.if ..tie can afford it.

I am in better shape than when I catne here and only the ground work has been done for getting at the main trouble. Dr. Brown (the specialist in whose hands Dr. Ras put me) now assures me that he thinks my case will readily yield to treatment and he sees no reason why I should not get well. No other organ is involved and there is but one enemy to fizht instead of a com plication of diseases. The report (made after certain analvtical and microscopic tests) of on3 of the most eminent pathologists of the city, shows that there is no trouble at that point and Dr. Brown was as great lv pleased as I was myself to be so assured. Under all the conditions then there is no occasion for worrying certainly I am not and I trust others will not. It might be a great deal worse. If I were racked with pain and tortured by suffering it would be different. I have not been shot or cut to pieces by an enemy or friendly surgeons. There is no bullet lodged in my an atomy where a biscuit ought to be. Nothing of that kind. There is a balance wheel out of gear that re- people of Virginia, like the people of North Carolina, do not really know what a goodly heritage is theirs in the land they possess. Rich in natu ral and undeveloped resources of minerals, forests and watar-power, fertile coils, navigable streams, and spreading waters teeming with great wealth, this is indeed a State of vast riches and vaster possibilities. The Times-Dispatch is doing its share in the work of acquainting the home folks as well ''as the outside world with the State as' it is and as it is d-stieed to become in the future. In this it doe- w 11 een if its influence did not reach beyond the borders of th- Commonwealth. The better n people know their own State, the more they realize and appreciate its greatness and goodness, the more patriotic and loyal, and th1 better cit iz- ns they are. Virginia is so closely allied to North Carolina in all the ties of com mercial, political and social life that with money erect a monument to; himself in the form of a hospital in j Henderson, makinghimself a blessing and a benefactor to sufferinghuroan ity? The opportunity is here where is the person, or persons, to seize and improve it? Oh, for a George Watts in Henderson! My sympathy and admiration is Thad Manning's Gold Leaf. We note with pleasure that the Henderson Gold Leaf has entered upon its thirtieth volume. For twenty -nin years our old friend Thad R. Manning has been at the helm of the excellent paper he estab lished. Friend Manning began his newspaper career in thi office, com ing: herewlxm a merebov at thetime with Dr. Bass in hia efforts to pro- j 4nnninr Brothers wereeditor of th Roanoke Nws. The Gold Leaf is one of our most valued exchanges and its editor one of our best friends. May the Gold Leaf continue to shine under t fie management of its present owner, and become a happy medium of eschanee for the "long green" in abundance. Roanoke ( Weld on) News. The writer of this is another o! the boys who started his career on the old Roanoke News with John Sledge and Thad Manning in the early seventies. Though our lots have been BEAUTIFUL HAIR.

A graduate trained nurse is in regular attendance and patients get as good treatmnt riant at home as they could find any where But lack of room and nde quate facilities to accommodate larger numbers is the handicap.

By the way, the Times-Dispatch made a ten strike when it captured the Charleston News and Courier editor. I do not know of a finer editorial pa ire than the uiciimomi iuornintf paper puts out seven days in the week. When Frank Woodson came to see me the other afternoon he brought along- an armful of North Carolina newspapers. He knows my weak ness first, for things North Caro linian; and second, for newspapers. Dear old Frank Woodson, "a fellow of infinite v'st," he is the same choice spirit he was thirty-five years ago when we lived in Danville. He looks but little older not quite so much hair on the forepurt of his cranium his intellectual brow gradually en croaching upon the back of his neck, as Bill Nye said of himself. But that gives him a more distinguished ap pearanceand this of course makes Woodson feel compensated for the loss of his hair. I have been thinking softly, gent ly, with muffled strokes and padded brain cells, so to speak, since I am commanded not even to think too much about myself or anything else. And what I have been thinking on is trying to decide one of two questions find myself, and more familiar with the surroundings, I almost feel that I am a subject of congratulation rather than of commiseration. Noth ing to do but lie here and rest, rest, rest and be waited on by a bevy ol pretty girls like I was "much big chief." Well, I'm afraid I'll be a spoiled child when I get out of here. This place beats wliat trie iortn Carolina negro preacher wrote back from Kansas: "Dis is de IvV coun try I ever wuz in. Ol' hares an wild turkeys is so gentle dat dey cum right up to de doo' to be knocked in de haid, and sweet taters grows wil' all erbout, you don' have nothin' t all to do but eat, sleep and go to preachin.'" A negro's idea of heaven, but I have found a better "countrv" than that where I have nothing to do but eat, sleep and rest or little els". Not even the "exurtion" of going to church and having to sH behind one of those fearfullv and wonderfully made "creations" of the milliner's art, over and under and around which it is as impossible to see the preacher as it is to feel per fectly serene under the circumstances. I felt considerablv relieved when my good friend, J. W. Brigge, volun teered to go to Henderson and help the boys out" with the paper tem porarily, at least. A practical printer and a capable newspaper man, with the assistance of Brother Mcblure and the loyal force in the mechanical department, the Gold Leaf is in good hands and readers will be gainers by the change. And when they are getting a fair exchange I am not spending myself in wasting sympathy on them. One might infer from the length ot this that I am very much of a well man; but 1 didn t do it all at "one sitting." I wrote a little at a time a paragraph or two until I got tired and then I put aside pencil and that have arisen in my mind. One quires adjusting an engine with a ot the "little girls in blue who was pa(j an(j rested. I started it five disabled driving 6haft that needs re- among the first to minister to me days ago, writing for pastime rather pairing a dvnamo with fuse and when I came, "broke me all up" after than to please others, and now lest waiting on me two days by inform ing me that she was going to leave me to nurse in another department of the building. Now what-1 want to know is whether, after finding out that there was a Mrs. Manning along, she lost further interest in me; or, having sized me up, she took me to be a hard customer and didn't want me as a patient. Which? They sent a mighty nice young lady to take her place as all these Virginia-Hospital nurses are and I wires disconnected. Repair the dam age and the machinery will be ready to start up again. That's nil and this is going to be done 1 feel sure of that. While I do not mean to be irrev erent I am reminded of the story of the old negro and the bear. Meeting a bear in the road and finding the way blocked and retreat impossible, the old darkey prayed, "Oh Lord, if you are ever going to do anything for me, now's the time to do it." And then reflecting upon his own unwor thiness and that he had done noth ing for the Lord and only called on Him in time of need, he modified his prayer somewhat and said, "But oh Lord, if you can't help me, please don't help the bear, and there'll be thegreatest bear fight here that you ever saw." If there is no interfer ence by other troubles arising (noth ing of which is indicated or expected) Dr. Brown and I are going to put up a fight to whip the bear in my case that will be creditable to us both and wo will whip him too, or draw his teeth and clip his claws so he will be less dangerous. Richmond Is a good town and I am V-egining to feel that this is not a bad place to be after all. The en tire esprit de corps, from the lady principal and head nurse to the col ored orderlies, is admirable. 1 have reference of course to the first floor section or division where I am loca ted, but I am sure that something may be said about each of theothers. Kind, thoughtful and attentive, prompt and cheerful in the perform ance of all duties, every wish isantici- pated, every need supplied. The table fare is all that could be desired and the cooking very good. I have frequently heard the Vir ginia Hospital mentioned in terms of praise. There is a reason; and like it full of historic objects and after a brief experience here I can add places of interest and one can spend very commendable endorsement days and weeks and months pleas- to what others have said.
