ICOLONEL BOXCOMBE'S PET SLAVE f'Eecomes the Ancestor of a Thrftinff Pas toral Community. 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: "Buncombe Hall "Welcomes alii" "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 i; 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 gain. Don't you hear dat ham-mer-Inc, Nailing to de cross? Listen to dat ham-mer-ing 'Fore your Root islostl Ham-mer-lngl bam-mer-lngt 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 Pecnliar Snakes. "Washington Press. 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 week. 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 opposite side. GOING DP ON A KITE.

From the New York Evening Sun.1 Baldwin regards the parachute fever as quiescent in this country just at present, but he will nevertheless appear at a number of the State and county fairs in the "West during the falL At Qnlncy he controls a balloon factory, in company with his brother Sam, who has also embraced parachute leaping since Thomas' success. The two' were old circus men and trained aeronauts long before Thomas started in his dangerons business. 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 carry objects weighing several hun 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." SINGING IN A TOMB.

Kennebec Jonrnal. 3 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 age of the shower, unconsciously commenced singing. At this stage In the proceedings the Irishman appears on the scene plodding slowly up the walk In front of the tomb. He stops, hearing 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 ludicrous sight.

Personal Characteristics of the Prin cess Louise, Who Has JUST BECOME DDCHESS OP FIFE, Some Interesting Anecdotes of Her Early Childhood Life. 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 cently published. "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 altogether so. 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 ting up." 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 ward married. 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.

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 for good. Made a nice haul on Corrigan, though: got 1,500 to 100 on him. and be made a daisy run and landed winner by a full length. I could have kissed the darling."
