AVill 31ae tlnt Womnent Shor:er' and Slhm Ones 3.ore Grace Al--Latest 111nts in Millinery. 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 astic, the surface bein of satin tin sn. These varv in width from five to ight incbes, accordinly, as one's Ph,ysique demands curtailing or eu rgement to produce the desired e" They can be had in colors and are fastened by elongated clasps and no;el buckles conforming to the depth of the belt. These are worn with em Pire gowns to produce the short-waist characteristic of this style of dress. By reason of its elasticity it permits of the free and graceful motion of the IS !

No young womon is in the swim un less she numbers three doz?n belt buckles in her collection. Belts are more necessary now than ever before, for basques are an obsolete fashion,~ and all bodices terminate at the waistI line, which fact makes the introduc tion of girdles imperative. All womaen agree on the one point, that belts tend to make a stout women less emphati cally so, and slender women like them because they realize the proportions between the size of the waisu and -hips. HIT IN MILLINERT. The Napoleonic craze is about ended and the Dutch bonnet is a thing of! the past. 'Ihe majority will be glad of this, for it was only the small mi nority who could becomingly wear either. The principal tendency of the new hats is toward higher crowns, and they vary in outline, to be desig niated as th~ ' Pierrot," "jampot' and " pottle" crowns. The first is point .ed, the second flares, and the third wideus from the crown to the brim. The low crown and flat brim of the samimer shape will not be entirely abandoned either. Many of the ne w shapes show crowns of silk plush, with brims of braidel effects or of feli, and in the new im ported walking hats are seen "pottle" crawus and wide, rolling brina male cutirely of the silk plash, with a se ve.re trim-ning of a tiat crown-band, with loops and quills at the leit sile. Amous bonuets, the shapes se -:n to be somewhat larger than of late, and niany show open crowns of wir"e jits and beeds, or Orien..tal embroidr.~ There arei also many' be:'tautiO3ni qu which never go out of fa&bian *oz all headgear the toque requi:res Le most careful handlbng, and only au artiste can give it that certain touch wnieh keeps it above th2eco:minon -lce Flowers munst tina no retin nrace on the toque, an.1 featheis rare lv.

()Itawed by Several States and Sup posed Mtirderer. 'ie notorious outlaw, Enianuel Il. mjs, -was killed at Sciver:d Saturday i. ight by Mr. Oscar Meyer, a condul or and Souihern Express' messenger 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 V-ae Senie timc and kill him in the M-yVr. Who runs regularly as cou dut,r on thE Carolina Midland Rail Ioad,. recvived a dispatch at Wagener ja:t eht reading thus: "Be on the okout; suiething wrong in town." i put him on his guard, when ho went into Seivern he first asked tb agent and afterwards Engineer Goodw win to walk with him to his boarding house.

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 isti"d. Froin that time he was successively in Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia and Flo-iLa, tilI Jat.ary, 1895, when he \vws brouLght baCk to South Carolina on SusI!ioa thit he was the murderer of Conuty Treasurer Copes, Under this charge be was lodged in the Peniteutiarv and retained there till some time in April last. Williams' career hnts beNn a notorious one of crime and depredation.

WEEKLY TOBACCO RE.VIEW. The Danville, Va., Register tobacco review for the past week is as fol lows: There was right much animation on the loose leaf tobacco market during the week ending Saturday. Double sales lasted up to the dinner hour dur ing each day. Most of the tobacco sold were bright goods and came from North and South Carolina. There was a sprinkling of tobacco from the country around Danville, and consisted principally of bright goods. Prices on all grades were well up and are high. while the market shows no signs of weakening. The farmers who brought tobacco to Danville last week, were well satis fled with the prices obtained. The con tinned dry, harsh weather, keeps the farmer from handling his tobacco in the barns, and no large breaks are looked for until there shall b)e a good season for handling the leaf. Manufacturers had a tolerably fair week, the aggregate shipment of plug and twist amounting to 115,549 poundcs. .The daily sales of revenue stamps were a;3 follows: Monday.................1S,690 35 Tuesday.................. 844 80 Wcnsday.... .... .... .. 1,351 71 Thursday................1,042 17 Friday............ .... ....1,011 94 Stuma'.... .... ........ 992 01 $6,932 98 3More syum pathy for Patriots.

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.
