There is much inquiry regarding the provisions of the new road law, under which elections of supervisors were held last week. These inquiries have been so numerous of late that a few of the principal sections of the law are given herewith: "Section 3. The office of road sup ervisor is hereby established. A road supervisor for each road district in this state shall be elected annually, by the male voters in each road district at the time prescribed by law for the elec tion of school trustees, and at tlie place designated by the board of county commissioners; provided, that there shall be but one polling place in each road district, and the polls at such election shall be kept open between the hours of 8 a. m. and 2 p. m. of such day. "Section 4. All laws relative to the election of school trustees so far as not consistent with this act, are hereby made applicable to the election of road supervisor in each road district. The county commissioners shall prescribe tiie form of ballots to be used for the election of road supervisors in all dis tricts within their county, and shall provide the judges of election within each road district with a special ballot box, to be used for tlie deposit of bal lots in the election of road supervisor. "Section 7. The judges of election, after canvassing the votes, which must be completed within five days after election, shall deliver to the county clerk and recorder of the county, with in the period above described, a certifi cate duly sworn to by each of the judges, showing- the number of votes cast for each candidate, and the name of the person elected; and it shall be the duty of the county clerk and re corder thereupon to make and deliver certificates of election to the persons shown to be entitled thereto, by the return of tlie judges of election, of the several roa.d districts within the county. "Section 8. The person so elected shall make written oath or affirmation of office before entering upon the dis charge of his duties, to tlie effect that he will, at all times, during his term of office, faithfully perform all duties prescribed for him by law, to tlte best of his ability, which oath or affirma tion shall be filed with tlie county clerk and recorder of the county. Road supervisors shall hold office with in the district for which they are elect ed for the full period of one year, be gining the first day May following their election and ending tlie 30th day of tlie following April, or until their successors are elected and qualified. "Section 9. Road supervisors shall give a bond of $500 before entering upon the duties of their office, with two good and sufficient sureties, pay able to the county in case of breach of its condition, conditioned for the faithful performance of all his duties as prescribed by law, which bond shall be filed with the county clerk and re corder not later than the first day of May following election. All moneys collected as penalties under this see tion shall be paid to the county treas tirer of the county, and shall constitute a road fund for tlie particular road district. "Section 10. A vacancy occurring in the office of the road supervisor iu any district shall be filled by tlie board of county commissioners of the county in which the road district is situated and the person so appointed to fill a vacancy, shall hold office until the next annual election of the district, or until liis successor is elected and qual ified. "Section 12. The road supervisor shall be allowed a compensation ot $3 per day for each day of eight hours, and proportionately for a fraction of the same, while actively engaged in performing the duties required of him by virtue of this act, which shall be audited and allowed by the board of county commissioners on presentation to them of vouchers showing the num ber of days actually employed, sworn to by the supervisor. "Section 13. Road supervisors under the direction and supervision of the county commissioners shall: "First—Take charge of all highways within their respective districts. "Second—Keep them clear of ob struction and in good repair. "Third—Cause banks to be graded, bridges and causeways to be made where necessary and to keep the same good repair and renew them when -stroyed.

There's something about the little black dress that touches a man in a very tender spot. He pats the little one on the head, puts some pennies in her hand, swallows hard and then—starts out to make his own children fatherless. There; is no doubt that many a man is taken from his family by neglect of simple precautions whicTi would preserve his health. Disease generally begins nowa days in "stomach trouble" because the meals are hasty and the food not di gested. From that beginning come dis- orders of the blood, liver, kidneys, heart or nerves. The use of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery, for diseases of the organs of digestion and nutrition will avert the catastrophe of more seri ous disease. It strengthens the stomach, purifies the blood, nourishes the nerves, and builds men up iu both brain and' body. "I can say to you, one bottle of your ' Golden Medical Discovery ' has cured me sound and well, after suffering two long years with stom ach disease," writes W. H. Braswell, of McAden ville, Gaston Co., N. C. "My health is wortll atl. the world to me. I will praise you as long as I live." Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets should be, used with " Discovery " where a laxative is required. roads within his district which are necessary and beneficial to tlie district. Provided, that in making such repair or improvements no more money shall be expended by such road supervisor than has previously been set aside by the board of county commissioners for such purpose, and in making such re pairs or improvements, said road su pervisor, so far as practicable, shall permit persons from whom a special road tax is due to work out tlleir road tax. "Fifth—Present his vouchers to the county commissioners of his county for work and labor performed by him as required by section 2 of this act, semi-annually, on the first days of April and November of each year." FASHION'S MIRROR. New Notions That Are Popular with the Undies This Fall. Long coats reaching to the knees, with large hoods, are made of satin and trimmed with stitched bands of cloth in patterns. They make beautiful wraps for elderly women. A long cir cular wrap of black cloth is outlined with a fold of white silk braid, and has a simulated yoke made of rows of fold ed braid stitched closely together. Some i f the sleeves to the gowns with the sheathed skhts are so snug that they button from the wrist nearly to the elbow. Wine color is much talked of for fall and winter use. With the velvet hats, birds or flowers of a peculiar light shade of red are seen. Occasionally a dark wine-colored ft It hat appears trimmed with velvet of the same shade and th" wine color appears ns trimming for sene of the outing hats. The big and broad turbans of fur and feathers are much seen, and are large and solid looking'. The fur cr the feathers go around the sides, the middle being of velvet. Whole birds are seen on these hats, and a gorgeous parrot makes a conspicuous toque. Some English girls are wearing becoming hats of pale bine felt, which set off their bright complexions delightfully, as they are intensified with black trimmings. A hat made for an American lias the rim cf black velvet, soft, pale blue felt crown, striped with, black velvet and a black bird at the side. 'liny little cut steel or other fancy buckles are among the touches which differentiate in neckwear, in which there is so little change that it can hard ly be mentioned. There are the same high stocks pointed indifferent ways as heretofore, and occasionally one sees the highness at the back cut in square instead of in points. Bound handkerchiefs embroidered with your favorite flower is the latest fad. Black velvet embroidered in oriental designs with gold braid and colored silks is used effectively for yoke and vest for an imported gown of old-ros» red cloth. The back in many a cloth bodice is made quite plain without any seam. For practical autumn uses there is now a great demand for fabric gloves of suede-finished cashmere in black, dark gray, aril all the varying shades of tan and russet. The stitching is in tiny silk points. Eight-button mousque taire evening gloves have backs stitched in their own color, contrasts beiug avoided. Dogskin gants in gray or reddish brown, stitched in a darker shade of silk, and fastened with four arge buttons, are stiff used for trav eling and shopping. Four-button black suede gloves are fancy stitched in white, but the best make have the finger seams stitched in black. Mary toques and turbans are devel oped in cloth to match the gown. The v!uth-r Vi : ed Spanish turban is much in e\id r.ct'. the cloth, as a rule, match i::g the gown, though they are found riady-made in tan and gray, both fel* and broadcloth.
