MrE belt ofite autumn girl is
a fashionable monsirosity. It
is the most conspicuous arti
(, c!e of her raiment, says the
New York World. English women are
proue to belts, and Americans are An
-glomaniacs by nature. therefore they
;ire following the fashion with a vim set
by their sisters across the water.. The
03g stores are exhibiting many new
ntr(d very striking designs in belts. The
i-;genuity and originality is surpris
inz, and one wonders what next may
eize the feminine fancy and deplete
o feminine purse.
Some of the most elegant belts in
ality are made of firmly woven silk

They can be had in colors and
are fastened by elongated clasps and

of the belt. These are worn with em

more necessary now than ever before,
for basques are an obsolete fashion,~
and all bodices terminate at the waistI

agree on the one point, that belts tend
to make a stout women less emphati

on the Carolina Midland Railrord.
Mever and Williams had had some
trouble so-me two or three weeks since
at Scivern, and Meyer had been advis
ed by numerous friends to be on the
alert, lust Wiliams would take an ad

jury, with Mr. Emanuel Busbee as
foremanm, br:,ight in a verdict that
"Emanuel Williams came to his death
from a gunshot wound in the hands of

everybody -eems to think that the ver
dict was perfectly righteous and en
tirelv consistent with the fact .
It will be remembered that Williams
is the nmin wbc, for all intents and
purposes, has been outlawed by sever
al States. He is the man who is sup
posed to have killed MitchellPoole, of
this conty, about two years ago.
After his trial for this he was carried
to Alabama to ansver for crimes he
was suppo sed to have committed, and
put out on bail there. His bond.men
proved that he was drowned in the
a"labama river and the bonds were sat

Under this charge be was lodged in

One of the most prolifle sources of annoy
aee tca th'e g.'orxnent. sinc- the opening of
the exposit.i:;. has been the enormous
qunartity or 1,stai cards, purporting to be.
soven;irs ofih,!h expo ition, wiich have daily
fIf'o-edl th'. cutgoing mails.
anni pris4 who .have4O written on these
I..:.stal oards h:e wowin-ered why no answers
have boe!i r''i ed from th"-m. The ex
planltiOU is.,h:le enough: rvost of them
hve failtus t. rc-a,h their dixtination.
Tho,4kandk of thesv postal cards have been
suhd' '6 the exposition grounds and else
where. . Thev are beautiful specimens of
a!rtis- 4ork and.each is embellished with a
one of the exposition buildings.
T6 a rance of the card is similar to that
of an ordinary postal and ignorant parties
are very easily misled by the supposition
that a single one-cent will carry the postalto
the proper destination.
"The cards have wrought a great deal of
mischief." said one of the officials. "and
every nail that goes out adds fresh coimpli
etions. it is true a common ordinary postal
<:arl only cosls one eent. but that does not
give any one the iglit to pIt a one-cent
stamp on : (y kind of pasteb-oard and call it
a .ta rd. T1..e governme.nt claims the
oi: righ :o ::mu11fneta re postaL.cards and
this privib-;.:e is accorded to no one else. If
a tWvo-"'t ,'tamplis put on the souvenir
cards theyv will go all right, but a one-cent
stamin not~ enough to caurry them.-'
The cards rr perfectly good as souvenirs
