Dies in Far Away Nebraska. The following account of the death of Mr. Henry Carroll, Sr., which oc curred recently at Fremont, Neb., was taken from a Nebraska news paper and sent to the Gold Leaf with the request to publish. Mr. Carroll lived for a number of years in Vance county, in the vicinity of Henderson, and was well and favor ably known to many readers of this paper: Henry Carroll, Sr., a well known resident of Fremont, passed away at his home on North C street about 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon. Death was due to a general physical break down incident to old age. The final call came for Mrs. Carroll last April and since that time Mr. Carroll's health has been in a precarious con dition. Funeral services will be held at the residence of his son, Tom Car roll, 1250 C street at 2:30 p. ra., Friday, Rev. J. Frank Reed officiat ing. Mr. Carroll was born in Lockport, N. Y., May 24, 1824, being more than 87 years of age at the time of his death. He had been a resident of Fremont for twenty-fiveyears and had an extensive acquaintance. He was known to all his friends as "Grandpa" Carroll, and was as dear to them as the name implies. Last fall Mr. and Mrs. Carroll celebrated their sixty-second wedding anniver sary, January 2, 1911. Mr. Carroll was a devout member of the Presby terian church and lyxs been an elder in the church for some years. He leaves two sons, W. A. and Tom Carroll, both well known busi ness men of Fremont. This Man Never Wore Clothes. Atlanta, July .11. Word comes to Atlanta via the North Georgia moun tains of a strange man named John Castollow, who has grown to be 01 years old, hale, hearty and happy without ever wearing a stitch of clothing and without ever using a single word but the monosyllable, "Gee." Says a traveler from Young Harris describing the marvellous person: "He lives four miles east of Wind sor, in Bertie county, N. C, and his health is perfect, not having missed a meal in fifty years. AVhen I visit ed him he was entirely nude. He is the strongest man I ever saw. His body is normal and well shaped, but his strength is prodieious. He can break a double plow-line as easily as if it were a cotton cord. He is gen tle and has never been known to hurt a living soul intentionally. He can not speak a single word except the one monosyllable, "Gee," which has uses, in varied intonations to ex press all his desires and emotions." Listen Young Jlen. Boys, when you speak of your father, don't call him the "old man." Of course you are older now than when you were taught to call him father. You are much smarter than you were then, you are much more manly looking, your clothes fit you better, your hat has a modern shape and your hair is combed differently. You are, in short, flyer than you were then. Your father has a last year's coat, a two-year-old hat and a vest of still older pattern. He can't write such an elegant note as you can, and all that, but don't call him "the old man." Call him father. For years he has been hustling Some Latter-Day Parables Aaent the Freer Use of Paint and the. Health of Our Town Let Us Cure. Not Cover Up. Once upon a time there was a doc tor who had a patient with a cancer. The doctor applied external remedies, ointments and patches, finally cured the outer surface of the cancer and pronounced the patient well. The evening of the same day, which was the last day of the patient the un dertaker came along and took hi-n He was dead. This story of the doctor illustrates the attitude of the people of Hender son, in at least some things. We have a chamber of commerce now ad vertising the town by the external application method trying to per suade outside people and capital to come to Henderson and hollering in megaphones at them that the town is all right and prosperous. Would it not be equally as well for us to get ourselves right inwardly first. What good does it do to tell a stran ger how great and prosperous we are when he can see with his own e;, es that practically every business block in Henderson needs paint. Why try to conceal this fact by sticking our heads in the sand. Paint is certainly an advertisement of prosperity. You can't fatten old Dobbin without making his hair shine to save your life. I never could understand why a man would not paint his own prop erty. The newspaper in any community is the mouthpiece of the community. The policy of the newspapers of our town for years past has been to patch up our infirmities outwardly rather than to make it hot for our folks on the inside. For instance, there has been criticism of our town government for years, enough to ex haust the dictionary of the devil, yet no reports adversely have been made by our papers and our town govern ment, the most public thing in the town, has been neglected by the press. It is the duty of our newspa pers to punch as well as to pat. The latest illustration of our atti tudes to conceal rather than to erad icate is this: The health officer of the town has just made his report for the last twelve months. Of the seventy-one deaths during the year twenty-eight of them were preventa ble. That is to sy, if our sanita tion had been better we might have saved twenty -eight lives, worth finan cially to the town, according to the government appraisement, between forty and fifty thousand dollars. Now there is a sentiment to conceal these F.nd other facts because it is bad advertising for the town. An other instance of where we try to show a wholesome body when as a matter of fact we are dying and rot ting within. The disadvantage of concealing these things makes it very hard for the health officer and town government to convince the individ ual of the importance of sanitation and makes it harder for the officers of the law to enforce the laws of re form along the lines of sanitation such laws as are likely to be enacted in the next few months. The point I wish to make is this: In all things relating to our town we should root out the evils rather than try to cover them up. Lt's cut out all cancers rather than cover them up. Let's be sound in body from bone to skin and the investigating, investing, outside public will be able to detect our growth, prosperity and health by the roses in oureheeks. S. T. PEACE.

At the advice of prominent electricians, ti e White House is also rodded. i'rof. Willis L. Moore, of the U. S. Weather Bureau, in his report for says: "Without adoubt light-1 nmg rods are efficacious in the pro tection of buildings. Buildings, even Alien struck, if provided with rods "iiiier little damage compared with those without protectors." I'rof. Thomas A. Edison, the world's noted electrician, says: ' Lightning Rods will protect build ings provided agood contact ismade with the wet earth." VALUABLE DON'TS. 1 I'ttN'T DECIDE that there is no virtue in Lightning Conductors, be cause some one who may be no bet ter informed than yourself says so. Read the unimpeachable testimony of Philosophers or any scientific work. ImiNT THINK you can afford to "run your chances" when life and property are at stake. Money can not bring back the lives of those you are bound to protect; and to lose your building means loss of time and money. A good Lightning Rod is the best and cheapest insurance known. DON'T BELIEVE that because your building has never been struck lu all these years it never will be. "It is a long road that has no turn," and because you have lived this long without dying, is no reason vou t-ever will. DON'T FORGET that electricity travels better over metals than any other substance, as everybody knows. That Is why the United States Weather Bureau recommend l ightning Conductors on all build ings.

Don't mistake the ctuse of hack&che. To be cured you must know the cause. It in wrong to imagiue that relief is cure. Backache is kidney ache. You must cure the kidneys. A Henderson resident tells you how. Eugene Thorn. Adams Ave., Hender son, N. C, says: '"I used Doan's Kiduey Pills and must say that they benefited me more than any other remedy 1 ever tried. For years I had kidney trouble and I suffered almost constantly from backache and distressing pains in my loins. Some days I was hardly able to stand for more than twenty minutes at a time and I rarely got a full night's rest. I took several kinds of medicine and also wore plasters, but I found no relief. Doan's Kidney Pills were finally recommended to me and getting a box at Kerner-McXair Co's. Drug Store, I began their use. They removed my aches and pains and restored me to bet ter health than I had enjoyed for years. Some years ago 1 publicly endorsed Doan's Kidney Pills and at this time I am glad to speak in their praise again. The benefit 1 received has been lasting." For sale by all dealers. Price "0 cents.

A Orand and Glorious Region The Appalachian Country a Highly Fa vored Land Carolina & Northwes tern Railway a Builder, and Devel oper Lenoir and the North Caro lina Press Association. The more I go into Western North Carolina the more I am impressed with the greatness and grandeur of that sec tion of this glorious old State of ours its fine climate and beautiful scenery, its wealth of forests and fertile fields, its vast waterpowersand mineral resources, and its still greater wealth of splendid c.iizenship. A recent visit to Lenoir on the occa sion of the thirty-ninth annual conven tion of the North Carolina Press Associa tion was another revelation to me. How the town has grown and improved since I first knew it. And the country round about has kept pace with the general progress. Twenty-two years ago the best meet ing in the history of the North Carolina rress Association, according to the dec- taxation of Josephus Daniels made in I census of 1910 is 3.3G4. nis very nappy address in response to the welcoming speeches delivered by Mayor Met 'all and Lieutenant-Governor W. C. Newland, met in Lenoir. I had the honor to preside over the delibera tions of that meetinghaving been elected president the previous year at Morebead City. W. W. McDiarmid, of blessed memory, was elected president at the meeting in Lenoir. Across the long stretch of years that has intervened since methinks I can hear his jolly laugh and see his happy smile even now as he was escorted to the rostrum and assumed the duties of his new office. "Mc." tried to look se rious and dignified, but failed in the at tempt. Fact is there was precious little dignity about that whole convention the "colts" ran wild and capered almost to the verge of being corraled by the sergeant-at-arms and falling under the disfavor of T. B. Eldridge, the constitu tion and by-laws and the "whip" of the convention. That was a memorable meeting wheth er it was the best in the history of the Association or not. There were a lot of bright men in that convention fellows of infinite jest, the recalling of whose names brings mingled feelings of pleas ure and sadness some dead, others upon whom the hand of affliction has been sorely laid, and none of usasyoung and buoyant, as elastic of step and as clear of eye as we were then. The sessions of the convention were held in the spacious auditorium of Da venport College, as they were in 1889. This is a delightful location on one of the highest elevations of the town and most of the editorial party were quar tered here, the college under the excellent management of Rev. James Braxton Craven, president, being converted into a temporary hotel for the accommoda tion of the editors. The people of Lenoir gave the editors such a welcome as only the Lenoir people can and entertained them in hospitable style during their two days stay. The convention was well attended aud Sec retary Sherrill'a promise that it would lie one of the most pleasant and profita ble meetings in years was in every way. from that grand conning tower of Nature, I realized as 1 had not before The sun shines clearer, And Heaven seems nearer, In Lenoir. This is an ideal place to live in summer of winter. Nature has been prodigal in her gifts and the good people here have done their part in seizing opportu nity and improving it. From a small railroad hamlet when I visited it the first time Lenoir has grown into one of the most important and prosperous of our mountain towns. Situated on a group of hills in a beauti ful valley, with an deration of 1,200 feet above sea level, surrounded by mountains, fanned by cooling breezes in summer and protected in winter by the sheltering arms of lofty ranges to the north and west from the bleak winds which sweep the more exposed sections of the country, Lenoir is indeed a fa vored spot. The town has long 'been noted for its high moral and religious tone, and the educational advantages are all that conld be; wished. That it is what its slogan signifies, "The Town That Grows," is shown from the fact that it has increased its population 181 per cent, within the last ten years. The number of inhabitants according to the A number of prosperous manufacturing plants are located here three large cotton mills, six furniture factories, two chair factories, one veneer plant, one basket factory, four wood-working and house furnishing establishments, one sash, door and blind factory, two box factories, two roller mills, foundry and machine shops, five wholesale lumber yards, saw mills and various other kinds of industrial enterprises. The town is electric lighted and its water and sewerage system is one of the finest in the State. The water supply is taken from, a pure mountain stream gushing from the Green Mountains seven miles from the town and is pro tected by a 200-acre original forest water shed. The water is supplied by gravity flow and shows a pressure of 170 pounds to the square inch in the center of town. Two banks with a combined capital of over half a million of dollars, one weekly and one semi-weekly newspaper, a splen didly equipped graded school with over 500 pupils enrolled and Davenport Col lege for girls, a meritorious institution which has an established reputation, all the different religious denominations having handsome houses of worship and the town dotted with many elegant homes, Lenoir is an ideal mountain town, with every conceivable advantage its own and has just begun to grow. But Lenoir's greatest asset is its citi zenship. It is the home of hospitality, and refinement, long known as "The Athens of North Carolina." The editors were given a drive over the town ii carriages and automobiles and the different places and objects of interest pointed out to them. Many of the machines were driven by their own ers, individuals and the Chamber of Commerce vieing with each other in playiog the host. Nor were the ladies forgotten.br omitted. They were given a lovely reception at the beautiful new home of Mrs. II. C. Martin by the ladies of the Wise and Otherwise club, of which Mrs. Martin is a prominent member, the occasion being graced by the leading so ciety women of the town. Mrs. Martin was assisted by her beautiful and ac fulfilled. .1 he sequel showed (to those j Complished young daughter, Miss Julia who htvi not been there before) that a wise choice was made when Lenoir was selected as the place of meeting this year. Those of us who had been there before knew what to expect. Everybody went away singing the praises of Lenoir and the Lenoir people. It was a pleasure to the writer to renew many pleasant acquaintances formed on a previous visit. I was awakened early the first morn ing by the chattering of a colony of English sparrows near my window. As I listened to the plaintive notes of a dove in the distance and heard the familiar voice of a Bob White calling to his mate, I thought The dove coos softer, And the birds chirp ofter, In Lenoir. Then as I went out on the college campus and enjoyed the pure freBh breezes blown direct from the mountains and cooled by shaded dells and spark ling streams, the further thought came that The grass grows greener, And life is sarener, In Lenoir. Health and happiness is the portion of these people and they are justly proud of their goodly heritage. The flowers grow sweeter, And the ladies dress neater, In Lenoir. There are no hobble skirts here. This stjle of dress is not conducive to moun tain climbing or getting in and out of vehicles on the off side of the hill. The skies are bluer, And the ozone purer, In Lenoir. Later when we took the drive to Hibriten and viewed the landscape o'er Martin, who has just graduated. Each guest was presented with a souvenir in the form of adainty hand painted picture of some mountain or mountain scenery around Lenoir. One of the features of entertainment was a drive to Hibriten mountain, five miles distant, easily accessible by a first rate turnpike, and luncheon in the pa vilion there. Hibriten is the western most of the Brushies and rises to a height of 2,250 feet, commanding a splendid view of the surrounding coun try. From this point one of the finest views which all our mountain country affords is to be had. I have seen noth ing that surpasses it anywhere nor have I seen its equal anywhere in Amer ica outside of North Carolina. For miles and miles up and down the valley and across toward the north and west until mountain tops and sky seem to come to gether and sight is lost in the mist-like haze that rims the horizon there is spread out a picture the varied coloring and magnificent beauty of which lan guage fails me to describe. A grand mosaic fresh from the hand of the Omnipotent Artist of the Universe wrought in the great Studio of Nature, the view from Hibriten is worth going miles to see and once Been the vivid im pression made and inspiring feeling stirred will linger long in the memory of the beholder. Lenoir was fortunate in the building of the Carolina & Northwestern Rail way, of which it was for a long time the northern terminus. This town occupies a commanding position in the midst of a rich and prosperous country upon which Nature has been most generous in the bestowal of her favors. The railroad has been extended to Edgemont, twenty (Continued on fourth page.)
