The stage was Deauuiui wun a infusion

Miss Browning is a vivacious young

Beautifully gowned, as she was. and
surrounded by flowers, she made an
entrancing picture. She reads with
clearness in enunciation and intelligence
in interpretation. Especially
good was her work in the intense pas-;

the best liked by the hearers.

SISTEK DEAD AND

It is a rather weird story that comes
from the western part of North Caro- j

the body of their sister and mournec j
her death, but later found that their j
sister was alive.
William Oliver, who belongs to the
firm of Andrews Supply company,'
lived in Andrews with his sisters, i
| Annie and Delia. The story goes that
Annie Oliver left Andrews about six
months ago and came to Asheville
' and stayed here for several weeks.
After she left Ashe villa it seems that
her brother and sister lost track of
About two weeks ago a strange woj
man committed suicide in the redlight
; district of Charlotte. There was a
! traveling salesmen in Charlotte at
the time who knew William Oliver j
;and also knew that his sister had left
' Andrews. He went to look at the suicide
and was shown a letter which j
was found on the suicide or with her i
1 effects. This letter was addressed to J
Annie Oliver. Thereupon the sales-|
man telegraphed to William Oliver j
that he was convinced that the suicide 1
j was his sister. I
( The ibrother immediately telegraphed
to a firm of undertakers, instructing
them to embalm the body and
ship it to Franklin, where the family

i He was notified of the time the
body was shipped and when it might
arrive at Franklin, and he and his sisIter
Delia made the trip to Franklin
to attend to the last rites. Another
brother came from Atlanta and there

priate ceremonies, bunches of flowers

i family's aversion to look on the faces
of/their dead. Besides, it is said,
that Mr. Oliver had received a letter
i from the undertaking firm suggesting
that the casket had better not be

1 disfigured about the mouth, caused
i by the corrosive action of the poison
I which had been taken.
William and Delia Oliver then retumori
to Andrews and the other
! brother to Atlanta, apparently well
satisfied that they had attended the

ago the brother at Andrews received
| a letter from Columbia. He was amazed
to see that it was in the handwriting
of his sister who he believed
dead and that she had signed it. She
gave the information that she was in
a Columbia hospital and had been for
some time; that she had undergone
an operation for appendicitis. This
! evidence that his sister was alive
seemed conclusive, but Mr. Oliver was
not taking any chances. He boarded
j the train and went to Columbia, and
