Pretty, stylish and trim from head to foot only one blemish, and that a decided, an humiliating one. She bad a pronounced mustache that a yonth of 20 would have envied her. "Every where that one goes, in shops, churches, theatres, thin diaagurotuent is noticed. Ia there no remedy Sensitive women will re tort to any and every method to rid them selves of superfluous liair. Scissors, tweet ers, yes, even razors are used, only to find that the blemish will return as fast as it is removed, and with additional strength. There are many fortunate cases. A young woman had a few straggling hairs on her face. She noticed them much more than anyone else, and grew actually morbid on the subject. One day while having ber hair shampooed her hairdresser noticed them and told ber he couii remove them. He produced a small stone, and by her permis sion proceeded to rub them off, leaving ber face smooth and blushing from the friction. He assured her that if they returned they would be much finer, scarcely to be ob served. Instead, in a few days they ap peared, and to her horror she found they were very much worse than before. In her despair she again used the stone which her hairdresser had persuaded her jo buy. This practice she kept up daily, until her face was in a frightful condition. However, a remedy nas oeen found in electncitv. "It is the only way on earth to effectually Kin Uiis parasite," said a well known physi cian to the reporter. 'Any physician of repute wm assure you of that fact Sua ing, cutting, pulling out by tweezers or de pilatories only make them coarser, rougher and more bristling. The follicle must be killed, then the hair falls out of itself." "Does it ever return V "Sometimes a few of the hairs come back, but they are always black and extremely easy to mu tbe second time." "Is it a painful operation?" "Well, sometimes. That depends a eood deal upon the sensitiveness of the skin, and the nerves of the patient. I find, though," he added laughingly, "that even when it hurts pretty bad, thu ladies will endure It bravely m fact, a woman will suffer any pain it t Hereby she is to be made better look fhe reporter then a.sked permission to be allowed to watch an operation, wbich was granted. The patient sits in a reclining cnair anu noius a oowi or wawr on her lap, in wnicti is immersed one or the cords from tbe battery. To the other is attached the finest possible needle. The operator gathers up tbe dsh about the obnoxious hair, pluuges trie needle in deep, the patient dins two or three flugsrs in the Writer, suys "Oh!" and waits. After a few seconds the needle is re moved and the hair is d?ftlv picked out bi the tweezers. The face is left a tittle sore from the operation, but camphor freely applied will heal it. Camphor is much better than any oily substance like cream or vaseline, for they have a tendency to make hair grow. There, is therefore, no need for any woman to carry about this hi-iemis blemish, which sometimes nuns an otherwise faultless com plexion. Chicago Herald. Some Faets About Feet. The ideal foot of modern ladies is about No. 3. We hear but little about the shining goal toward wbich the masculine foct : directed The length of tbe average foot is difficult matter to decide. Perhaps there was a time when its status was more reliably nxed than at present. For instance, the com mon unit of lineal measure, a foot, was de rived from the length of the liuni foot Human feet differ in length all over the world; so does tbe standard of lineal n urement. There was a time when not only each country, but each town, had a foot measure of its own, indicating different aver ages of the different feet in various localities. Taking the English foot (12 inches) as standard, we find the French foot to be 12.78, the Rhenish foot l'J.35. As these compara tive lengths were derived from the average human foot of these nationalities, we may take comfort in tbe fact that we are in the happy minority of inches at the base. The Russian foot of measure equals tbe English. and tbe German or Rhenish foot varies in tbe different states. The longest foot of measure is that of old Turin, which is equal to twenty inches of English measure. This latter, founded upon the length of tbe Turin pedal, might, in tbe persiflage of our time. De saia to nave descended by Heredity to certain section of our greatcountry, famous. In fable at least, for its bread tb and length of understanding. In order to get an idea of the length of shoo sizes in inches, it may be stated taat a foot measuring ten inches, with the weight of tlie body resting upon it. may wear, comfortably, a No. 0 shoe. Tbe reader can figure from this up to tho Turin foot of twenty inches by allowing three full sixes to the inch. Shoe and Leather Re porter. Taylor House for lale.

Tbe alleged murderer is unharmed. but a score ot citicens of Birmingham are killed and wounded. About I'i o'clock the mob around tbe coun ty jail began slowly pressing hark the outer guard and advanced down Twenty hrst street to the mouth of the alley leading to the jail entrance. This alley is about 10b feet long and twenty wide and is the only approach to the jaiL When the crowd reached the mouth of the alley. Sheriff Smith from the jiit warned the men to stand back time and time again. He yelled to tbm to kwp back as they would be fired on if tbey advanced further. Finally he called out: "I wilt count three, and if a man remaiuK in the alley we will Are." He counted three, and the crowd foil back a little, but the authorities did not give tbe order to fire. This seemed to make the mob bolder, and again tbey pressed up the alley. Sheriff Smith yelled to tbem: "1 wilt count fire, and if you do not fall back we will fire.1 He connied live, while tbe mob hooted, yelled, and continued to advance Then tbe officers opened lire, which was returned by tne mob. At least 000 shots ware flrd. Thn the mob fell back, leaving the ground covered tb dead and wounded. iuverat of the dead were hurried! v carried away by their friends before being identi fied. A full list of the casualties in the conflict shows that three men were instantly killed, seven fatally wounded, and thirty more or less seriously injured.

Blrmlughatn Wild wlth'a Spirit of Outlaw ry The Sheriff Arrested. Nasbviixb, Tenn., Dec. 10. A special to lbe American from Birmingham, Ala., says: Yesterday and last night the city military encampment. Civil authorities practically stepped down and out and Col. Tom Jones, of Montgomery, with thirteen military companies is absolutely in charge of affairs. Th jail is guarded by state troops with picket tines extended several squares in every direction, and at each approach there frowns the countenance of a Galling gun. Mounted scouts are'sent out of the city, and at regular intervals acquaint CoL Jones with the condition of the public mind and prospects of armed rising by the people. Tbe streets have been a living, maddened mass and very little oratorical pyrotechnics could readly organize a mob whose solemn duty would be declared to be to avenge the "murder" of tbe popular lbrockmorton and tbose who feu by him. All along tbe walls of the city are posted petitions of various kinds signed by thou sands of people. One of these recites at length the assertion that Sheriff Smith bad "butchered in cold blond" some of the best citisens of Birmingham, and asked Governor Beay to immediately relieve him of bis duties as sheriff. Anfliner petition, side by side, reads: "This is to hang him, and was signed by thousands of passers.

This was served by tbe coroner, who found Smith In tbe jail, and tbe coroner himself took charge of tbe lafL During the afternoon the rumor became widespread that 1,500 miners from Pratt mines, aJoot nve miles from Birmingham, would, after dark, march to the city, armed with guns, pistols, and dynamite cartridges. and with the increase to their ranks that was expected, assault the soldiers and with dynamite blow to atoms tbe jaiL That such would be attempted was expected even by the military, though a successful finale not anticipated. Sheriff Smith says: "We begged and pleaded with tbe crowd to keep back and then they fired the first shots. Several shots were fired by the crowd before I gave tbe order to Are. We begged tbem to halt at the mouth of tbe alley and still they kept coming on. W e begged tbem to go back time and agaio, warned tbem we would shoot, hat they would not listen to us. They came half way up the alley, close to tbe jail door and were shouting, 'Blow up the jail with dynamite. After all this, and after they opened fire, I gave tbe order to fire. Tbey continued firing after we ceased. I feel that we could not have done anything else nnder the circumstances and I deeply regret the necessity. Tbe chief of police made a similar state-. ment. Col.

They are also re quested to report to the Judge and other maid- trates any persons who Indulge in threats of violence or endeavor to Incite others to mob violence.

THE CHARGE AGAINST HAWES. tt Is la Brief, That He Ha Murdered Bis Whole Family. Last Tuesday tbe body of a young girl was found in the lake. Tbe next day sev eral persons identified the body as that of a daughter of a railroad engineer, Dick Hawes. Hawes lived in the suburbs of the city with a wife and several children. Hawes left town Monday. Officers went to the home, but round it closed, and the family gone. That evening a negro woman In formed tbe coroner that last Saturday Hawes left thia girt tn ber charge for a few days. Monday night about 8 o'clock be called and took tbe girl away, saying that be was going to place her convent in Montgomery. Those who knew tbe Hawes family believed that the mother, too, had been murdered and tbe body ooncesled. The couple had been divorced, and be had taken one child, a boy. from the mother and sent him to a brother in Atlanta. Monday Hawes married in Columbus, Miss., and was passing through bore with bis second wife on his way to Augusta, ui, when be was arrested. He was a little agi tated at first, but when closely questioned at tbe jail and told that one of his children bad been murdered he seemed apparently uncon cerned, and said be had left Mary and an other little gin some nays ago wicn ber mother, and that all of tbem had already gone to the mother's relatives somewhere in Maine. Facts, however, kept coming out that did not agree with Hiwes statements, and tbf convict, ion settled down on tbe community that tbe mother had gone the same way a tqe daughter. It is also known that Hawei was not divorced from his first wife, and had lied to tbe girl he married last week, fck search for the woman's body was began and blood-stains were found in every room of the Hawes cottage. Following up the "signs," at noon Saturday the body of the missing woman was round at tbe bottom of a take in the park, half a mile from the cot tage where the family had lived and five miles from East Lake, where the body of little May Hawes was found last Tuesday. The head of tbe dead woman had been crushed in by a blow with an axe and tbe body was kept at the bottom of tbe lake by 200 pounds of iron fastened about the neck. feet and waist. Tbe couple's second child is missing, and search for her is going on. There is no doubt her body will be iouud in the lake whore the mother's body was found, aud tbe laito will be drained. All Saturday evening tbe wildest excite- ment that Birmingham bas ever known pre vailed. Second and Third avenues and Nine teenth street were filled with a mass of peo pie, and tbe crowd grew larger every mo ment d us mess bad been suspended on account of tbe great tragedy, and no other subject was thought of. Talk of lynching Hawes and two negroes who had been ar rested for complicity, was free and open. Mayor 1 hompsoo issued strict orders to Marshal Packard to thoroughly protect the jail and the city, and a large number of tried and true men were sworn in to special duty. and they surrounded the jail, armed with W incbester rifles. An excited citiz?n who mounted a box in front of the Florence hotel and urged tbe mob to violence was arrested and marched off to prisox Jrlawes says be was married to Miss Lm ma fettis, daughter of Col. r ettis, of Atlanta. by whom he had three children, tie alleges he secured a divorce from her last October. but continued to live with her and she cared for the children. Tbe new wife says Hawes represented himself to be a widower wito but one child, a boy who had relatives in Atlanta. She announces she will take immediate steps to have her marriage with Hawes annulled. THE BEV1ER REIGN OF TERROR. No Hope for Feace While the Strike Lasts f Militia Ordered Oar. Bevier, Ma, Dec. 10. luere is very little hope entertained here that the dis turbances arising out of the recent strike are at nn end, and fresh outbreaks are looked for hourly while the strike lasts. Tbe sheriff is unable to secure a sufficient force of men to prevent disorder if an out break takes place. There are two armed bodies of men, ready at a moment's warning to renew the trouble, and tbe accidental firing of a gun would be the sequel for a bloody struggle. lbe disarming of both sides can only be accomplished by tbe gov ernor placing tbe town under martial law. Saturday night the storehouses of Loomia & Snively, the leading miners of tbe place. were burned, and are thought to have beeo set on fire. Kansas City, Ma, Dec. 10 Gov.
