The Richmond papers are working the Beattie trial to such an extent that we can't help thinking they are glad it all happened. President Taft seems toplacegreat stakes on his little tariff board. Rut of course everybody knows in ad vance what the conclusions and re commendations of a part isan tariff board will be. If Col. Wade II. Harris, of the Charlotte Chronicle, doesn't mind he is going to be the instigation of more railroad wrecks. He wants the Sea board to cut out over an hour of slack in its passenger schedule be tween Charlotte and Wilmington and make it a five-hours run. A head line in one of the leading daily papers of the State a day or two ago read, "Girl of the Under World Suicides." While some of our leading dailies have a wonderful rep utation for journalistic euterprise, this is the first intimation that they have succeeded in establishing a "press service" down there. President Taft patted the Demo crats on the shoulder and told them they were noble, patriotic fellows to rise above party and vote for his pet measure, the Canadian reciprocity bill. Rut when it came to the Dem ocratic tariff measures the President was not big enough and patriotic enough to rise above party and al low them to become the law of the land, but promptly vetoed them. Wo do not know if our townsman, Mr. T. T. Dicks, quite agrees with Mr. Dooley with reference to the con stant perils of autoists, but it is the opinion of the latter gentleman that "the man with the automobile is constantly steerin' between the poor house and the county jail, and if the police don't land him in wnn, the automobile will land hirudin the other." Anyway, Mr. Hicks' article on the subject, which appears on the first page of this paper, makes very entertaining reading matter. Of the ninety-three applicants be fore the Supreme Court this week for license to practice law in this State, one was a woman, .the first of her nex, so far as we now recall, to apply for license to practice law in North Carolina. It is not yet known if she successfully passed the examination, but if she did, and if she is as good at quizzing and arguing as most other women are, she ought to be able to make a success in her choBen profession. Wonder who is back of those high ly exaggerated estimates that would indicate a bumper tobacco crop in North Carolina this year, and what their object can be in sending out these estimates so persistently at this time? It is a matter of common knowledge here in Vance county that the crop in this section will do well if it finally shows up to be GO to TO per cent of what it was last year. And from general reports it is little if any letter anywhere else in the State. The Greenville Reflector wants the Gold Ix?af to tell it what a "whiffin poof" is. We are not sure that our information is absolutely accurate, but a Henderson man says it is "a big ado about nothing." It is a part of the business of newspaper people to "run down" such things and "sift" them. Now and then you find a per son who has done something that in the judgment of the doer ought to be worth at least a column in the paper, while the newspaper man can see only two to five lines in it. Did you ever hunt 'em, Mr. Reflector. The rat her vigorous agitation that has been started here in favor of a I more aggressive and wide-awake mu- nteipal eover-ment has already gun to attract attention throughout the State. Several papers, including one or two of the leading dailies, ri a n ifrf if nitl iiAnf i ....n.m ucmij oyyi u txi and commended it to the favorable j consideration of the citizens of their rw,i,,.i . , "1 ; spectacular and magnificent moving recognized fact the world over that 1 picture in the world? will 1 shown witnout a progressive and up-to-date j at the Tastime Theatre Thursday municipal government no city oran(i Friday nights of this week, town is in a nositinn tn o-rrn. i There will also be matinee each af- develop as fast as itotherwise would, I and it is therefore no wonder that the call to progress and better things in the municipal affairs of Hustling Henderson should attract the attention of other cities and tdwns. Let it be understood, how ever, that there are no charges of corruption or wrong-doing against oar city officials. Mr. Peace seems to set that matter straight this week by saying frankly that all our city officials are honorable men, and that he is not after men but progress. I Pushing.Work on Big Power Line. j Chirch New?. I The Carolina Light and Power; The North Carolina Annual Con j Company is vigorously prosecuting ! ferenee of the Methodist I'rotestaut I the work of construction on its pow- Church will meet with the Henderson I er line from Raleigh tothin place and church on Wednesday, Nm-emlw-r i hopes to have it completed and j 22nd, and will be in session five I ready for the transmission of power j days. early in ."November, baveral equaus . of hands are at work between the j two place, cleaning off the right of j way, digging holes and setting up : the great poles on which the wires will be Ktruucr. Some of these have ' their headquarters here and at Kit-! trell, Franklinton, Neuse and Hal-! e:gh. The constmctiou work is j making satisfactory progress all j along the line. Work on the substation that will I be used for distributing the power over Henderson and to the various manufacturing concerns that will use it is now in progress near the Harriet Mills, where it has been de cided to locate it, and this will be finished and ready for use before the main line is completed. ' From this point lines will radiate in all direc tions, carrying the power to its con sumers in every part of the city aud its suberbs. From this point a line of high poles has been erected to the Hen derson Cotton Mills in the northern part of the city, and this big mill will be operated by electric power. The poles used on this line are from 45 to ;0 feet iu height in order to get the power lines up above the shade trees. Similar lines to other manufacturing plants and sections of the city will be constructed, and everything will be in readiness for turning on the new current by the time the main line between Raleigh and Henderson is done. Work on the big line between Rlewett Falls and Raleigh is also going forward as fast as possible. Steel towers are being erected on this line, and it will be ready to con vev the current before the great dam across the Pee Dee river at Rlewett Falls is completed. Rut Henderson will not have to wait on this, as power will in the meantime be sent from Ruckhorn Falls on the Cape Fear river near Moncure. Three car loads of copper wire and other materials for the line be tween here and Raleigh arrived here the first of this week. Farmers Will Poo! Tobacco Crop. The bright-tobacco growers of North Carolina and Virginia held a great convention at Greensboro last Friday and Saturday and unani mously adopted plans to pool the 191 1 tobacco crop, and completed a fusion of strength which they believe will be effective in warring against the tobacco trusts. This conven tion was held under the auspices of the Farmers' Union and its deliber ations were therefore behind closed doors. Hence very little of the pro ceedings of the convention was given out for publication. It is learned, however, that the farmers agreed to hold their tobacco for tiftH?n and twenty cents a pound, according to the grades, and further more that tin? members of the I'nion are in a position to secure t he price demanded. Thev are backed by strong financial institutions and in connection with the pooling plan have organized a banking system that cannot be surpassed. Such are the claims of the tobacco farmers who met at Greensboro last week, and they confidently expect to "make good." This project of pooling the tobac co crop did not originate from a sudden impulse, but on ' the other hand the farmers have been getting ready for it for some time. Through out the Piedmont section of North Carolina .and Virginia ten large to bacco prizeries have been erected during the past few years, and six more are now in course of construc tion. These will be used to store the crop In the communities in which they are located, each of them hav ing a capacity of over 5,000,000 pounds, the general average being sufficient to store the crop of a whole county. Ry means of this union of forces the farmers claim that they will lie able to place their crops on the mar ket at almost one-half of the cost they have heretofore incurred in marketing. The farmers are direct ing their tight chiefly against the to bacco trusts and the warehouse owners, who, they claim, have here tofore managed to squeeze about all the profits of the producers of to bacco. Industrial Track Located. Of the three different routes survey ed for the "Industrial Track" to be built hero by the Seaboard Air Line, it has finally lieen decided to use the one that starts south of the Harriet Coley crossing and goes out through the Lassiter lands, the Chavasse es tate and the Ruchan property to the road leading from r airground street xneirucK win uo inu nines lung, ami nave heen right sick, are improving, the Chamber of Commerce has two Mrs. X.

Parents, please have the chil dren vaccinated immediately and fur nished with the required certilicate. The physicians of Henderson have generously agreed to meet at the school building and examine children for any trouble which may retard the children in their work. Frequently children make poor progress in their studif s when the trouble comes from some physical de fect for which the child is not responsi ble.

There will be no charge for this examination, Parents are urged to attend to this.
