The mint buys gold in any form,

In sums to the value of $50 or more.
The face value of coins is not constd

equivalent amount of lawful money is
given In exchange. Theoretically, tha
gold Is coined and handed back to
(be owner without charge. In practice,
as a matter of convenience and to
save time, the mint simply buys the
gold and pays Its full coinage value

The Halifax Resolution
On Tuesday, April 12th, was
Halifax Resolution Day. The
News and Observer in speaking
of this memorial day, says:
"Yesterday's holiday was in
celebration of the Halifax Reso
lution. On April 12th, the Pro
vincial Congress of North Caro
lina, in session at Halifax,
adopted a resolution empowering
the delegates from North
Carolina in the Continental Con
gress to confer with the
delegates of the other colonies in
"declaring independency." Not
quite three months later in Phil
adelphia the national declaration
of independence was signed.
The Halifax resolution breath
ed the same rugged spirit of in
dependence and determination to
be free from oppression that ani
mated the longer declaration. It
showed that in those days as now
North Carolina was at the fore
front in liberal thought.
Not enough people are famil
iar with North Carolina history.
Observance of April 12 as a State
holiday should have the result of
causing North Carolinians to re
fresh their memories as touching
the history of the early days of
our Great State. "Roanoke
