iBELLES OF BUNCOMBE
f!i Pecnliar Colony in Carolina Noted

ICOLONEL BOXCOMBE'S PET SLAVE
f'Eecomes the Ancestor of a Thrftinff Pas
fTHE CHDECH IN THE MOONLIT FOEEST
rwnrrrnr roa f ni msrATcn.l
No account of the yellow belles of Bum-
combe would be complete without a short
sketch of the illustrious Revolutionary pa-
- triot, Colonel Edward Buncombe, from
whom they derive their name. He was born
of English parentage A. D. 1742. At the
age of 25 he marritd and settled on the
island of St. Kilts. In 1768. with wife,
child and slaves, he embarked for the Caro-
- lina coast, entered Hatteras, sailed on up
the Albemarle, landed at Mackey's creek,
and purchased large tracts of land in the
boundaries of the county of Tyrrel. Hear
the still waters of Mackey's he erected his
famous residence "Buncombe Hall." Over
the gate at the entrance to the grounds of
the mansion was written this couplet:
"Which was true to the letter. The poor and
unfortunate never went away empty, and
his friends were always sumptuously enter
tained. At the breaking out of the Bevo
lutiou he raised a regiment, quartered it at
"Buncombe Hall," equipped it at his in
dividual expense, and when ready for serv
ice he, at its head, gallantly fought in de
Jense of the colonies until wounded at the
, battle of Brandvwine. He was captured by
the British in that battle and carried to
Philadelphia where he died a prisoner of
war in 1779, at the early age 37.
A CABOLIN A CHABON.
Among Colonel Buncombe's slaves was a
nan namad Charon, far above the average
in intellect, appearance and reliability. In
fact, a mixture of European, Spanish and
African bloods coursed through his veins.
' He was a great favorite of the Colonel's,
and after the termination of the war was
set free by the Buncombe family. Still, re
garded as a negro with few of the. rights
and privileges of the white man, he was
what they termed' in those days a "free per,
son of color" master of his own time to
come and go when it suited him, but in
many respects no better than a slave.
Charon mingled with the lower class of
whites, and being naturally industrious and
caretaking was regarded very favorably by
the "white trash," as the slaves called
those who permitted him to visit their
houses. This intercourse soon developed in
a case of natural admiration and love be
tween him and a comely untutored white
girl. Her parents were Very poor and de
graded, a(M really had no objection to the
union; but the law interposed, and
said there should be no marriage be
tween the whites and "free persons of
color." "When there was suspicion that
. either partv were white it was necessary to
prove or truthfully swear that the said parjy
had mixed blood in them.
It teems tbat the lovers were not to be
thw&'ted, for Charon gashed his arm, and
while the blood was flowing his sweetheart
placed her mouth upon the open wound and
drank freely of the purple fluid. She then
toot the necessary oath and they were mar
ried. They were blessed with a numerous
progeny, and from them are directly de
scended "the yellow belles of Buncombe."
BECOMING A LANDED PROPRIETOR.
In those days land was very cheap in
Carolina selling in some instances as low
as 25 cents per acre. Charon had save $100
in the years since obtaining his freedom,
and with it he purchased a tract of 400
acre, unbroken wilderness, situated some
miles from any other inhabitants. It was
there he moved bis family and there his de
scendants dwell to mis aav. J.ne country
in the meantime filled up and land became
I more valuable, .so they are not so isolated
npw. Indeed they form an interesting
community in close proximity to a prosper
ous and wealthy agricultural section.
For a century they have dwelt on this
land, and multiplied until tbey number
many dozen families. Begarded as negroes
by the white people, yet in all their history
sot' one has ever been known to marry a full
blooded negro. They mated only"with inu
la ttoes,quadroons and octoroons, so have per
petuated their individuality in complexion,
etc Proud and independent, they claim to
be the aristocracy of the negroes; and till
this day look with contempt upon those who
were freed by the late war, and speak of
them as the "new issue." On the other hand,
the old slaves regard them lightly.
But the yellow belles of Buncombe are
much more popular than their duskier
cousins. At festivals, picnics, etc., where
the two are frequently brought together, the
attention shown the yellow girls is notica-
ile in a very marKed degree olten to the
:ntire neglect of the blacks. And that"
THEY ABE PRETTY
no admirer of female loveliness will deny.
Thev are tall and straight, with well-
rounded and splendidly developed forms;
anil to see them tripping by twos and
threes along the secluded pathways
of their community they appear as
active and supple as the wild fawns of the
neighboring forests. Their Bmall, yellow
feet and ankles show plainly beneath bright
print gowns; aa immense bandana, Tarn
O'Shanter fashion, encases their coils of
shining, blacfc hair, though sometimes it is
allowed to fall down the back in long, thick
plaits. Their eyes are fine, nose straight,
cheeks dimpled, and teeth perfect. All
use snuff, and love candy and red ribbon.
If two men are courting the same belle, the
chap that carries her the most snuff, candy
and ribbon generally Wins the prize. They
carry young and niake'good mothers.
During cotton picking tbey can be seen
by dozens wending their way to the adja
cent plantations, where, they remain all day
in the fields gathering the snowy staple
amid continual song and laughter. The
mockingbirds singing in the apple trees
are no happier than they, nor the wild flow
ers freer with their perlume.
They all belong to the church and are
regular attendants every Sabbath. After
the crops are laid by, about the 1st of Au
gust, they hold their "big meeting," which
lasts sometimes two weeks, night and day,
and attracts delegations from adjoining
counties. Such another collection of mu
lattoes would be hard to find in the entire
South. All negroes are imitative and all
negroes sing well; but these colored 'people
are exceptional. The preacher sings his
sermon and his prayer is a song but look
for melody when the congregation rises and
sings "Ham-mer-ing," while the minister is
urging sinners to the mourners' bench.
AIT ENTRANCING SCENE.
Picture a dimly lighted church sur
rounded by a grove of southern pine trees,
whose every shadow is plainly outlined
upon the white sandy soil by a bright moon
in a cloudless sky. The very air is still and
listless, scarcely creating a murmur among
the long green needles overhead, but ready
to resound the slightest noise. The hoot of the
owl in the distance seems to be at your side,
and thesnappingof a reed in the low grounds
crashes through space like the report of a
pistol. Imagine yourself standing in this
piney grove about the. church, both iands
of your watch, which you Examine by the
light of the moon, nearing the midnight
hour, the seclusion of the spot almost pain
ful to contemplate, then be ready for the
outburst of a hundred trained voices join
ing in a hymn, as the mourners are
called, and you have this Southern
scene before you. But you do not
hear the music, nor can pen describe it.
The hour, the place, the singers all tend to
the compositson of weird, wonderful, fasci
nating medody ringing, out upon the mid
night air strong and clear as the measured
clashing of unnumbered cymbals. By
close attention these verses are caught and
retained, for they are repeated again and
Don't you hear dat ham-mer-Inc,
Nailing to de cross?
Listen to dat ham-mer-ing
'Fore your Root islostl
Nailing to do cross:
Sinners come up while we sing
'Fore your soul'ls lost.
Peter be denied his Lord,
Thomas doubted Him,
Mary was de first to come, i
lint Judas kissed de King;
Be like Mary all de time.
And wear a golden ring;
Hab your hearts always in tune
To dat ham-mer-ing!
Before the meeting closes for the night
numbers have gone up to the bench to be
prayed for, while some have "come
through" and are shouting the Redeemer's
praise. The meeting is continued day and
night until all are converted, or proless to
be. "W. Coxten Downing.
A MISSISSIPPI MAN'S TAENS.
Wonderful Storlea About Wild Turkeys and
The wild turkey is a bird that has almost dis
appeared from the face of the earth. But It
will be comforting to sportsmen to leam that
there are still sections of the country where
this Gamesome and toothsome fowl abounds in
comparatively plentiful numbers. Such is said
to be the case in some parts of Mississippi.
But if the record recently made by an old
hunter down there is kept up, the supply will
not last long. The hunter in question enticed
a flock of turkeys into a lonely place in the
woods by scattering corn on the ground. This
operation was performed several days in suc
cession until 19 nice lat birds formed the habit
of resorting to tho place for their dally break
fast. He then laid for them, and one morning
fired into the flock, killing IS outright at one
shot. Tne nineteenth escaped with a broken
wing. His neighbors feasted on turkeys for a
Snaxes also abound in that region, and some
curious specimens are met with. Tho chicken
snake is one ot them. His habits are very
pecnliar. His occupation is mainly to rob the
nests of innocent barnyard fowls, and swallow
eg3 for nourishment. It is difficult tor even a
snake to digest an egg in its natural shape, and
this serpent resorts to a novel expedient to as
sist him to perform this useful operation.
After swallowing a number of eggs he climbs
into the branches of a tree, or crawls to the
top rail of a neighboring fence and falls off in
order to break them. Another snake inhabit
ing that section, it is claimed, will swim across
a river to bite anyone it may suspect Is on the

In speaking of his future Prof. Baldwin said
in a qnlet and earnest manner.
"You heard of a man flying a kite, of course.
Well, you never heard of a kite taking up a
man to the clouds, I'll wager, did you? I pro
pose to go up on one of my own kites some day
before I die. In Cbma and Japan I saw the
finest known development of the science of
kite flying and kite making. The points I
gained there are going to be of great value to
me, because I Intend to build a kite
that will so comply with the law of
aerial balance and force as to easily

dred pounds. Already I have .made several
satisfactory models, two of which have taken
up 40 or 0 pounds, and have acted very nicely.
My improvements cover the tail, the ribs, and
other portions of the make up of an ordinary
kite, and with favorable winds I am confident
that I can show a new order otf aerial evolution
that will astonish you when, you see it. That
is all I dare to reveal at present, and it is the
first public intimation I have ever given about
my plans in this respect."

A Boston young lady visiting in this vicinity
relates a pretty good story at the expense of
some poor old son otjreland who resides in
this city, name unknown. On Tuesday she went
ont berrying in tho vicinity of the cemetery,
and in the afternoon a heavy shower came up
so quickly as to compel her to seek shelter in
the receiving tomb. She was pretty thorough
ly soaked before arriving at the entrance, and
undoubtedly looked rather forlorn; and while
standing in the doorway waiting for the pass

appears on the scene plodding slowly up the

the music, and looks around. Presently he
espies the figure in the door, it is a rather un
canny sight at that time of day in such a
shower, and the spectacle is too much for his
nerves. He tnms pale, his knees seek each
other in fear and trembling, and finally terror
overcomes him and with a muttered impreca
tion be tarns and flees. Over lences, ditches,
fields and roads,he flics in his haste to quit the
spot, while the heartless Boston maiden changes
from a song to a hearty peal ot laughter at the

THE BLUSHING BRIDE.
Personal Characteristics of the Prin
cess Louise, Who Has
JUST BECOME DDCHESS OP FIFE,
Some Interesting Anecdotes of Her Early
THE GROOM IS A MAN OP CHARACTER
rcOEMSPOXDXSCE OV TIIE DISPATCH. 3
Philadelphia, August 2. An En
glish nobleman, visiting in Philadelphia,
who has an intimate acquaintance with the
Duke of Fife and has enjoyed much pleas
ant intercourse with'the Prince of Wales
and his family, tells the following charming
stories of the royal bride. He also gives
the correct versions of the unfortunate mar
riages of the Duke of Fifevs sisters, of which
several erroneous accounts have been re
"Princess Louise, now Duchess of Fife, is
not outwardly strikingly beautiful, the
Georgian features are too prominent for this
to bo possible, although her appearance is
pleasing and year by year she decidedly
improves. It must be borne in mind, too,
that when she has been seen in publib she
was always in company with the Princess of
Wales, whose wonderful beauty and charm
ing grace ot countenance were enough to
throw all else beneath -a temporary shadow.
A general impression prevails that Princess
Louise is stiff, dull and uninteresting; this
is in a measure true, but by no means
A story ot Princess Louise's childhood
days which has been roughly attributed to
another royal grandchild, will illustrate
her love for mischief. While visiting the
Queen one day at Balmoral she committed
some act for which the Queen intended to
Tjunishher. Her custom is not to send a
naughty child into the corner, bnt under
the table, and under the table was Princess
Louise ordered to go, where she was com
pletely concealed by a long cloth.
SOMETHING OF AK OTCtDKNT.
After a few minutes tho Queen said, "Louise,
are you good" yetT" "No," came the prompt
reply. "Then stay where yon are." After an
other interval the same question came again,
the reply being "Not quite good yet;" and once
more she was told to stay until she was quite
good. At the third interrogatory, "Louise, are
you qnite jreodr" the infant Princess responded,
"Yes. qnite good." "Then, come here. Lulu
dear, and I'll forgive yon." Upon which, from
beneath the table, appeared the child, clothed
only In nature's garments. The Queen was un
able to resist a tit of uncontrolable laughter,
and asking why she bad undressed herself was
told, "Adam and Eve was naked when they was
quite good." X
Another instance will demonstrate the same
point. She was present at a picnic at an age
when sho had begnn to wear her dresses almost
to the ground. Prince Leopold was attired in
a Highland Lilt, and was experiencing some
difficulty in rising from the ground gracefully.
Princess Lonlse looked mischievously at him
and said: "An, Uncle Leo, you had better
begin to wear long dresses, too. I am glad I
have no longer to take so mnch trouble in get
The Prince of Wales was always fond of a
good romp with his children, and he had a
fondness for what he called "playing bears,"
and many absurd positions has he been caught
in while thus engaged "on all fours." Count
Karolyi, tbeAustrian Ambassador, was ushered
rapidly and unexpectedly once into the library
at Marlborough House and there found the
Prince on his hands and knees with his three)
girls on his bead and back, and the Princess
watching the sport with evident amusement,
A MAN OP CHARACTER.
The Buke of Fife, tho bridegroom-elect, is a
man of whose character any one might well be
proud. In appearance he is of very mnch the
same build as the Prince of Wales, although
ho does not seem to tend so much toward
rotundity. Ho is. however, rather fat, chubby
and red-faced, looks well fed and has reddish
hair, besides wearing short side whiskers of
similar hue. He is a magnificent shot and a
first-rate whip. A picture ot good nature arid
in everyway "a good fellow?" It Is strange
that this very man whose marriage with a
princess Is so popular because he Is an English
noble, should have had a nuarrfil with Prince
"Henry of Battenberg, whose marriage with
princess .Beatrice was so unpopular oecause ne
was a foreigner of practically no account.
Because Prince Henry of Battenberg did not
receive while staying at Mar Lodge, one of the
most lovely properties of the Earl of Fife, situ
ated near Balmoral, some piece of deference
which he expected in deer stalking he chal
lenged Lord Fife. It need hardly be said that
the latter refused, though from no feelings of
cowardice, to fight a duel, explaining that It
was not the custom of his country. Shortly
after some most ludicrous pictures appeared la
J'unch, portraying Prince Henry deer stalking.
These pictures did more, perhaps, than any
thing rise to make this ambitious specimen of
uerman nouuity toe laugning stocc 01 Europe.
The Earl, or to call him by his new title, the
Duke of Fife, seems to have concentrated in
bis own person all the virtues of his family; at
any rate the other members have not distin
guished themselves in that line. His eldest
sister. Lady Ann Duff, married tho Marquis of
Townshend, who apparently thought that bis
mission in life was to drive all begzars from the
face of the earth. He used to walk about,
looking intensely generous, until some poor
tramp would beg of him. The tramp was
promptly handed into custody, and next morn
ing the usual heading would appear in tho
daily papers "Marquis of Townsbcnd and the
Beggars." Somehow, his wife seemed to have
wished for more attention than she received.
NOT ALTOGETHER SMOOTH.
Her husband, though, remained engrossed in
ridding the world of mendicants until one fine
day Lady Townshend disappeared. Great ex
citement followed, and various surmises as to
the cause of her absence were freely offered.
Rumor finally pointed to the friendship be
tween her and Lord Edward Thynne, a' brother
of the Marquis of Batb. He was a well-known
and elderly roue, whose escapades with mar
ried women were frequent and romantic.
Ultimately the pair were detected in Paris.
Lord Townshend sent a trusted friend to de
mand the restoration of his wife. The guilty
lugiuvc iur a ion luiuuiea was berrineo. at tno
prospects of a cowhiding, but when he dis
covered that his Lordship was willing to take
his wife back, and that all tho friend intended
to do was to take her away, he exclaimed
rantnronsly, "My dear fellow, God bless yon! I
have been waiting for a week to get rid of berl"
Since then man, wife and'mendicants have
lived happily and peaceably.
The next sister. Lady Ida, married Adrian
Hope, a man of low birth and a snob, who was
well though not pleasantly known in London.
She soon came to the conclusion that the match
was not a wise one, and soon found some one
whom she liked better. Unfortunately she
permitted him to occupy her husband's place
before procuring a divorce from him.The
natural result followed in the shape of a divorce
suit, which was duly granted. The co-respondent
was Mr. William Wilson, whom she after
The youngest sister. Lady Agnes, married
Lord Dupplin, the eldest son of the Earl of
Klnnonlf. He, altbongh a great friend of the
Prince of Wales, was a man of essentially low
tastes and haolts. And before loner the
third of this unhappy trio found she
had made an error, and was very un
happily mated. Thereupon she, too,
tried the alternative of living with a' husband
whom she bated and despised, by eloping and
living with another man. Mr. Flower fell a
victim, and Torquay was elected as the place of
residence. Mr. Flower was a brother of Mr.
Cyril Flower, M. P., the owner or Surrey
House, one of the finest in London, situated
near the Marble Arch and facing Hyde Park.
Lord Dupplin waited, with what patience was
possible, for two months, and then brought
suit for divorce, which of course was not re
fused. Mr. Flower died in 1S7L J. B. 8.

A HOBSE PLAIING GIRL.
A Type That Upset the Character Reader's
Chicago Herald.: '
A gentleman who prides himself on his
ability to read the human face rodq downtown
yesterday morning on a 8 juthside cable car,
and, as Is his wont, began studying the features
ot his fellow-passengers. Directly opposite
him sat a beautiful girl of perhaps 20 years of
age. What impressed him most was the deli
cate refinement of her face; there was an
almost splrituclle expression in the lines other
small, sensitive mouth, while the modest,
drooping eyelids, clear-cut nostrils, firm,
rounded chin, and small, shapely hands clearly
betokened a blue-blooded, high-minded type of
womanhood. Still there was something about
her which pnzzled him; this was her escort.
He was as coarse and repulsive as she was re
fined and attractive; his clothes, his manners
and his conversation plainly Indicated a mem
ber of the sporting fraternity. Presently the
student of human nature received a shock
which upset all his theorizing; it was when the
young lady began speaking to her companion.
"I played Champagne Charlie for a winner
again yesterday," she said, "and got left as
usual. He jostgotaplaco and that's all; that
horse makes me tired. I guess I'll jump bim

though: got 1,500 to 100 on him. and be made a

That the success of a town is dependent
npoa the relative size and importance of its
industries and likewise upon its location
and advantages. "Without enterprises of
moment to support its population, general
business languishes; without public im
provements people prefer to live elsewhere.
The presence of both these elements prom
ises success and the rapid solo of one hun
dred and fifty lots, on which buildings ars
in coarse of erection, confirms the prophecy.

as possible, inclnding the laying of the
street mains through which the town will
be abundantly supplied with pure water.
