Josephine, on June the 20.h, at the
Haywood County Ho-pita..
One of the must uniiiui- piece of
native hand work has iu-t Uen com

It is a guitar, with the face of a sing
ing negro carved on the front. The
details in every respect are perfect.
Mr. Miller made the sounding
boards from pieets of timber from the
old jail, which gave them a season
ing of some fifty years. The entire
instrument is hand made, and accord

is far superior to the average.

quality. It is interesting to note that
the varnish used on siieh instruments
costs as high as $5.
The instrument is on display at
