GIRL IN BOY'S CLOTHES.
A Lassie From North Carolina Masquerad
lug as a Lad-She Fooled the
Boys at First.
W hat to all outside appearaice
was a boy on Monday afternooi
strolled the streets of Newberry a
a stranger in a strange land, chew
ing tobacco and expectorating
without a license, as fully and fre
ly as any masculine hobo who couh
raise a quid ; fairly good looking a
a boy but not so comely as a girl
The young t ra veler was not dresse(
hn the height o faslion ; but il
this instance tlie "clothes (iid no
make the man, "or boy either. Th<
"youth" applied for a night's lodg
ing al(d was provided will a cel
at the station house by our gallan1
andot accomodating policemetI. A
yet no one sSpeCted thatt lhe littI
North Carolinia was ot her thI:uI
represenlted to be. She looked :
boy, and style and maners bort
out the deceptioil to perfection. .a.
though her feet and Inds did
look rather sInall for a boy. 14)l(
in this case. as is often tle case,
appearances proved to be deceitful
in the end. Strange to say, though,
everybody who came in contact,
seemed to have a tender feeling for
the poor orphan, as if they had a
premonition that they were enter
taining an angel unawares, and
they were gentle in their treatment.
"le" was not such a rough
looking customer, even considering
the somewhat seedy clothes and
hat, but "she" did not turn out tc
be an angel, because she had toc
much of a boy's ways about her,
But we niust not be too severe. It
may be, and perhaps is, true that a
few years ago "she was some
hody's love" and that 'somebody';
keart enshrined her there ; some.
body wafted her name above, night
And morn on the wings of prayer.'
1t was while seated ill the offic
of Chief Bishop, ,urrounde(l by
officials and other citizens, they
talking of every thing in genera
and nothing in particular, that she
weakened and"gave herself away.'
At least she told this reporter at that
juncture she felt that her sex wa
about to be diycovered and identit
disclose( and that it would probab
ly be to her .kdvant age to let dhc
di bc .m kn . Th<
she (e!.ted Eer -' .rv.
Shie u a, l traveig unider the a.s
true n:une was I .aura \\Villiamns, ant)
that she wa.S '-going oin seventeen.'

years andI her fat her six. She hai
