Tin knew her.
One day her husband said to her, "My
dear, why don't you invent a new mater
ial for women's clothing which will snper
cede such a clumsy and costly fabric as
cloth ! Tig leaves, of course, won't do,
; at least in our climate ; but surely some
thing can be found that is better man
doth." This suggestion greatly pleased
the good wman, and she promptly began
to investigate the various materials which
might by any possibility be converted--into'
clothing. ' .
The result of her investigation was to
ton vice her that what her sex really want
ed was paper. She found Unit a single'
tliickiiess of ordinary newspapea is much
f "warmer than cotton or even wool, .and
friends told her that
they had actually suffered, even iu ni:d
erately warm weather, from wearing three
or four closely folded copies of the Tn
r.hmt: She also found that paper was ex
tremely cheap, and that there were cer
tain kinds of paper which were soft, plia
ble, and reasonablystrong. She estima
ted that shccoiild make herself an entire
suit of clothes, exclusive of shoes, stock -
ing, and gloves, out of paper, at a cost
of $1.17, and she could decorate the outer
garnieuts with water-colors, so that they
would be far more beautitul than the fin
est patterns of silk. There remained the
solitary objection that paper skirts were
readily 'combustible, but she knew that
by treating them with certain chemical
jiiei:initioiis. nbsolute safety against fire
. , , , - --
could be secured. 1
With her usual energy she at once ob
tained her materials, and made and deco
rated alull assortment of paper garments.
The lower or primary strata were com
posed of soft white uuglazed paper, what
might bo called, in view of their position,

On this place Mr. Wadswortb. has demon

sixty acres "under cultivation, and how
high the state of cultivation, a glance is
sufficient to show. One hundred acres
are in grass and clover high clover and
grass so thick upon the ground that it is
softer to the footstep than any Brussels
carpet. Twenty acres of the laud is in
cotton, which is now well up; Mr. Wads
worth's stand of cotton was never better
at this season of the year. There are
five acres in grapes 3,000 vines, well
trained and the young orchard, we
guess, is the best in Mecklenburg, em
bracing all the fruits grown in this sec

lot of Fultz wheat, sowed last October,
stands six feet high, as thick as hops, and

At the first annual convention of the

an executive committee to overlook asso
