establishment of the system of
county government which delivered
the counties of the "black districts"

so many of them hud been bank

Mr. S E Wroten, a prosperous
farmer who resides ner Rocky
Point, was a welcome visitor at the
Star cilice yesterday, at.d gave the
interesting statement that everybody
in his section wa3 for fnje silver,
and that the Populists were finding
out how their leaders were trading
away and bartering their vote and
many were returning to the old
Democratic party, knowing that oniy
through that they can win over Mc-
the policy which he had uniformly Kinley and Rusaelhsui.

advocated ihut the Institution for
Deaf Mutes was established at Mor
ganton. Bnt aside from his services
in behalf of these great public in
terests, perhaps the chief title of
Governor Holt to the grateful es
teem of his fellow citizens rests
upon his valuable services rendered
in effecting the compromise of the
State debt. A part of that debt
was secured by a lien on the State's
interest in the North Carolina RaiF
road. Through the recei ver of the
"ailroad company, Hon. Samuel E
Pmilips, the matter was in the
hands of the Federal Court. All
thought tha: the road must go. It
seemed a certaintv that the lien was
to be enforced and this most valua
ble property of the State sacrificed
to the greed of lend grabbers.
Just at this juncture Col. Holt, with
a few influential friend?, volunta
rily undertook a j mrney North to

So it goes and so it should go. We
have too high an opinion of many of
our Populists to believe that they
will continue to stand aloof from us 1
when there is nothing practical in
our differences, and their standing
off weakens us and makes them pow
erless. A Populist was in our office
recently and declared he would vote
for Bryan and Sewall, and that he
was not going to be in a small
cro vd of Populists who wtre going
to vote that way. Some have even

j. Tnis sketch is no array
of the author's fancies spread as
flowero on the grave of an imaginary
hero, but a just tribute to one
whose modest virtues forbade the
display of encomiums that send
men high on the ladder of fame
during life. Had he wanted noto
riety, he had but to make a small
bid for it, but it was the ambition
of a patriot that sought only the
fullest measure of usefulness as a
goal for higher and more worth the
reaching than any greatness of name.
He eerved the State in both
branches of the Legislature, both as
private and as presiding officer and
as Governor and every sphere
marked him fit for a still higher.
We clip from the sketch the fol
lowing: THE COMPROMISE OF THE STATE DEB :

A TRUE PATRIOT.
Nor was it only in official life that
Thomas M Holt showpd himself a
true patriot. He desired to see the
sons of North Carolina educited to
glory m the heroic memories of the
past, and it is worthy of mention
that the noble monument and statue
of Maj. Joseph Winston, which
adorns the Guilford Battle Ground,
was his individual gift. He counted
it, he said, among the happiest acts
of bis life to present that memorial
to the Guilford Battle Ground Asso
ciation. Indeed his whole life bore
evidence to the truth of the state
ment in the speech which he sent to
be read at the presentation of the
statue to the association July 4th,
1895. 'Tf I know my heart, I de
sire no other earthly lot than to be
able to add my mite to the further
ance of the happiness of the whole
people and the glory of North Carolina."
But what is all public greatness j

show the purity of their source.

Do You Use It?
It's the best thing for the
hair under all circumstances.
Just as no man by taking
thought can add an inch to
his stature, so no preparation
can make hair. The utmost
that can be done is to pro
mote conditions favorable to
growth. This is done by.
Ayer's Hair Vigor. It re
moves dandruff, cleanses the
scalp, nourishes the soil in
which the hair grows, and,
justl as a desert will blossom
under rain, so bald heads grow
hair, when the roots are nour
ished. But the roots must be
there. If you wTish your hair
to retain its normal color, or
if you wish to restore the lost
tint of gray or faded Jiair use
