The Butterfly Jacket, Shirt Waists of Handkerchief Linen, Beautiful Cotton Fabrics, Spring Hats. 'i There are manj attractive nov elties among the spring fashions not the least of which is the very latest craze, the butterfly jacket, with the sleeyes formed of part of the side fullness of the garment. In any reliable or plain silk these little coats are extremely smart Then there is .the butterfly shirt waist with the same sort of sleevr f which are really simply an extff sion of the sides or ,. rather of tv front and back. This waist is b v' ing made up-in soft silks and li.4 srerie l materials of. all sorts. .vi,v both front and back, and trimmed with a side pleated frill, edged with pink hemstitching, that grad uated towards the' waist line. These waists come with stripes of all colors, pale 1 blue, lavender, yellow, etc.,. .and;'' are, sometimes trimmed with two frills, ove over lapping the, other, but both turned toward the side. . are now being displayed in the New York shops. The styles are quite different from the models we have been wearing this winter Shapes are much smaller and crowns are higher, and while tjxey j are richly, trimmed there; is not such an overpowering load of gar niture piled on each hat as has been the case during the jpast sea son. -I For hats to accompany tailor gowns or chapeaux for general wear rough straws are the smart est. These are usually trimmed with wings and ribbon,; but flow ers are also used. For more elab orate millinery" lace .straw is the newest idea, though the old favor ites, chip and leghorn, are brought into requisition as well. These hats are twisted and bent into all sorts of forms. The idea seems to be to avoid the straight ne as far as the brims are concerned. Then the new sailors must by no ' means be omitted, for they form a very important part of the spring millinery. These popular bats "come in very becoming shapes r and are most smartly, trimmed wih win-V or j Hj, ..! r -ly completed in the conventional stylebyaband Lucr Carter. , ' Sentimentalists who bewail the hard lot of depraved criminals and moral perverts who may be sentenced to hang or to a term in the penitentiary for some heinous crime should remem- , ber that the object of the State in the punishment of such criminals is pro tection of the innocent not' the re formation of criminals. A murderer is hanged, not because hanging is good for him but to keep him from commit ting murder again. And the question is not whether it is better for the criminal to hang him or send him to the penitentiary;"but which is best for innocent citizens and taxpayers. The State maintains public schools for the benefit of pupils, but cminal courts are not maintained primarily for the benefft of criminals. Pulaski Citizen. . TO OUR SUBSCRIBERS.

This gives us very short notice to notify the delinquents on stj our list, or to get delinquents to settle up. UNDER THIS ORDER we have a number of subscribers upon whose papers we would have to PL,ACE STAMPS after April 1, and the stamps would cost us more than we get out of the sub scription. We must therfeore collect back subscription accounts or the postal department will refuse us pound rates and stop The Commercial from going to subscribers who would be barred under the Ruling announced. , We quote below paragraph 3 from Section 436, of the new postal laws, cited in the order of the Postmaster dCT'TTTI , .
