Homctliln About Laces.
Notwithstanding the fact
that our business in this de
partment has increased fully
40 per cent., we are desirous
of still further increasing it",
and to this end have added
a long line of "Novelties,"
representing the very latest,
freshest and most desirable
styles and patterns ever
brought to this city, which
-we have marked at prices
conducive to an unprece
There is no questioning
the fact that our prices are
lower on these goods than
prevail elsewhere, as can be
substantiated by an exami
nation and comparison.
We propose to be "Head
quarters" for "Laces," as we
are for American Silks, and
shall merit your recognition
as such by offering every
thing desirable in "Lace
Novelties" as soon as they
reach the market, and at
prices which we guarantee
to be the lowest the same
qualities can possibly be ob
tained in this city or else
where. Besides you have only to
return our goods in order to
procure the money paid,
which principle holds good
from our basement up, and
not on one or two particular
lines of goods.
We are continuously on
the lookout for "Bargains,"
"Job Lots," etc., for this de
partment, and this week are
showing a number of good

On November .TO, W,, ho began lo learn

"At 0 you a Democrat In politics?"
"No, I am not a Democrat; that Is, I have
not taken any part hi politics. Tlmo.iind
ncaln I havo voted In county and State 111.1t
teis for Democrats becauso I believed them
to bo tho beat men running for tho olllccs.
You must know that among colored men
there tiro few who aro Democrat? In tho
strict ffliso of the word, but tho colored
voter Is fast learning to stand by thoo who
mollis friends, mid colored men can't live
nny longer on tho old promlso of forty
acres and n mule."
"You havo met tlio President; now what
do you, as a representative colored man,
think of tho Administration?"
"I was very much Impressed with Mr,
Cleveland, and I am frank to say that ho
aim ins Aiiiiiimstruiioii navo acicu i.iiriy
and friendly to the colored people; and If
tho pi tscnt policy Is maintained tho colored
peoplo will have n great do.il more eoull

ing tor irieniis, ami so long ns tuo now .u
mhilstiiitlou gives them a chance to hold on
to their places here, they will havo tho
strongest proof of lho friendship of the Ad
ministration. Tho colored people of tho

their fiicnd as long ns their leaders stay

"Is your race Improving Its opportunities
In North Carolina!"
"Yes. Colored men are acquiring laud,
and they havo long tlnco found out that
there Is 110 money In politics. They ro
allzo that they havo to work, 'lly tho

tho good hook. These llamlug politicians
who camo Into the South some years ago
and went about among tho colored 111011

"Colored men, moro than ever, aro begin

Whilst It Mas natural for the negro to bo
under great obligation to that naity, it was
a mistake for their leaders to think that thoy

to give n bond of 50,000, and threo whlto
gentlemen fit Franklhiton, N. C, volun
teered to go on tho same. They we're for

"Scu those two fellows coming across
the slrret? They've got n fresh 'stilt'
nnd nrc on their way up with It now.
That's' llielr wagon standing over (hero
under llinl tree."
This remark wns addressed to Tun
CiiiTic nrllst by u medical student ns
the two stopped In front of an arched
door lending Into ti narrow alleyway
between two houses near tho heart of
tho city. Tho nrtlst wns, upon Invita
tion of "his inmtlcal frlcMil, accompanying
him lo tho colicgo dissecting room to satisfy
a morbid curiosity. A cold, drizzling ralu
was fulling, mid the night was a gloomy
one. A dim light from a flickering g.is
lamp on tho block above was all that saved
the surroundings fiom total darkness, yet
It was enough to show that ono of the men
pointed out by tho nrllst's friend carried a
heavy load actoss his back. The two wlerd
looking figures moved noiselessly forward
and wcro within 11 fow feet of lho artist and
Ids friend before they discovered tho two
standing In front of tho very door they were
about to enter. Slopping suddenly, the
fellows wcro on tho point of retreating
when tho medical student said "1'hat you,
Sandy? Its all rigid, como ahead."
A I'ltUSIt "SIIISEU.
Tho men slopped imon hearing this and
again camo forward. Tho student then
walked up tho narrow alloy followed
closely by tha artist. To the nrtlst t'10
gloominess of tho night was doubly Intcnsl
fled when ho entered this dark passago fol
lowed by tho two strango men bearing tho
corpse of a human being". Tho very Cchoot
the footsteps In the passage made his artis
tic hair assume tho perpcudlcular, and he
wished he hadn't como.
Emerging from tho alley the student led
tho way up a rickety stairway that creaked
hideously with the weight of the quartette
Ouco while ascending tho nrtlst glincod
back, but tho sight of that Ungainly bundle
homo 011 the shoulders of tho two men was
anything but reassuring to his nervous sys
tem. When lho top of the third flight ot
these groanlug stairs wns rcarncu a iioor
was opened and the student and his friend
entered a sort of nnto-chamber where a
dozen coats and hats were hung upon the
walls. Tho men with tho strango tmiidlo
followed and deposited their load on the
tloor. Whatever it was was enclosed hi a
liugh sack of unbleached cotton. Immedi
ately tho men wero surrounded by a crowd
"What Is It, Sandy, moke?"
"fiopd frC6h one, Sandy?"
"Not from .Montreal, Is It Sandy?" and a
dozen other questions wcro put to 0110 ot
tho men, a huge fellow with shaggy red hair
'No, taint no moke, and It's fresh and it
didn't die of smallpox. It's a 'shiner' and a
full (rro-.vn one Oulv burled two days.
It's the fellow you read about lu tho papsrs
the Other day got shot," answered Sandy,
Tlio artist afterwards learned that tho
"shiner" ot tho nhouls' vocabulary slgnlilos
"whlto man." Untying the sack, Sandy as
sisted by tho other mail pulled from It u
naked corpse Tho ghastly sight playel
havoc with the steadiness ot tho artist's
knees, nnd ho felt relloved when his friend
conducted him Into llio next room, a largo
apaitnicnt next to tho roof uuplnttcrod
and tho rafters above braced at intervals
with upright Joist.
S INI'I-UASANT HEUTINO.
Here were a number ot ruilo tablos mado
of hoards resting upon logs of uuplauod
timber. Upon ono near tho centra of thu
loom laid n corpso around which stood 11
group of students listening to the words of
one of tho faculty, an old man w Ith glosses,
who held a scalpel In ono hand. Ills sleeves
were rolled up, nnd he was cutting and ex
plaining lit the sniiiii time. 1 11 the piesuuco
of so many and under the Influence of an
abundance ot light the nitlst grew bold

empso was thai of iiwoinaii.nllgtitnitilatto.
A cut had been mado across tho lower part
of the chet, another running from tho
throat down until It intersected tho (list.
The Haps wero laid back, exposing the libs
and upper part of the diaphragm. A strange,
slckciilng-swcct smell pervaded tho iitmos
phcro of tho loom as from chemicals of
somo sort, and tho artist found himself
possessed of an uucoiiquerablo disposition
At another table ft student was lntentl)

opposite end stood a student who, while
sawing through the femur bono of a colored

Another student was loud lu his
calls for Sandy.
"Sandy I I say, Sandy I ! Whero tho
devil did oti put myltiiiu? I've hunted
this looker' over iilid'eaii't llnd them.
"They're In ver box alongside o' Mr.

Mr. Jones, the owner of the llvor referred

Independent excursions about the room un

meeting deprived him of all further ambi
