Here's neiirs foe every woman ttho goes about vvltK
larokert corset Bones. There's a material that'll neither
break nor roll up, and it's guaranteed A year is not too
short a time to wear out that warranty. If ic does, here'?
your money without a word but it wont.
The material is Kabo.
And more. It's stitched
and bottom, and it can't be worked out with any ordin
- The Kabo corset is more than a common blessing
" to the average woman. There's no wearing out of corset
lacers by the sharp edge of the eyelet ; there's nothing to
'j' rust,r no eyelet visible through a thin dress ; never a
breaking of a corset lace with those loop eyelets.
' : We take the risk in selling the Kabo corset. We

J Rohert, Hansom has been assigned
j an horable part iu the ceremoaies
of the occasion, aud every Confeder

be cordially welcomed by the patri.

Me McKinley, chairman of the
Ways and Means Committee, is re

truth is, be was in a dilemma. lie

powers of vituperation are either
"in the gall of bit;, mess" or are

most blatant of sectional dema
gogues, has sunk out of sight in
filth of his own making: Q iay, the

blistered wi:h his own embezzle

locked in. the pillory of contempt
because of his shameless pUgnar
isms, We are gratified to learn from
the Charlotte Chronicle that Capt.
S. B. Alexander will esbmit his
claims to the Democratic Conven
tion of his district. This removes,
to a considerable extent, the appre
hension that the Farmers Alliance
would endanger the success of the
Democratic party in this state.
There can be no objection to far
mers contesting the posts of honor
in the party, indeed it is indioatiye
of a wholesome reform.
Quvy refases to resign the chair
manship of the National Republican
party. Certainly! That he should
have been asked to resign, or that
anybody should have expected him
to resign is the strange thing about
it. Quay is tbe master of his own
methods, and without them the
Eepnblican party cannot exist.
When we bear of tbe resignation of
His Satanic Majesty, Mr. Qaay's
resignation will be in order.
In some districts in North Caro

In this district the names of two or
three gentlemen have been men

of other distinguished men are
fully codceded by tbe friends of Mr.

No one who has uiy appreciation
of grace and beauty in nature or in
art can fail to recognize the charm
of fine manners in an individual.
We rpjoioe in them as ye do in a
lovely srin8et yjew or a beautiful
piece of architecture or a fascinat
ing poem, for their owq sake and
for what they express j but even,
beyontl ttyis ttjey have anpther at
traction in the magnetic power
they exert qpon all beholders in
setting them 4t ease, in sweeping
away shyness, awkwardness and
restraint, and in stimulating them
to the expression of whatever is
best worth cherishing within them.
It is undoubtedly true that the
presence of fine mauners, whether
it bo in tho home or the social
circle, in the workshop or the count
ing room, in the visit of charity or
the halls of legislation, has an im
mediate effect in reproducing itself,
in diffusing happiness, in develop
ing the lacplties, and in eliciting
the best that is in everybody.

As express.-'.! in aii eiiitoi ial last
monlh, i I has i-t med that lor
making cotton goodo for expoit, the
South had decidedly the most f'ivor-
able conditions. This matter has
oaon nmi'nacl,! orn oril inn hp
been discussed pro asd con by
maDy who, are doubtless much more
practically conversant with the real
situation than the writer, but to all
who claim that cotton manufacture
is in any way an experiment or
cannot be regularly and continuous
ly carried on under most favorable
and business like conditions in the
South, there seems to bo no more
fitting argumeut than the little
story of the "cant-put yon in jail"
lawyer in which, as you may re
member, a certain young lawyer
received a notice from a man con
fined in jail awaiting trial. Having
heard his client's stqry, he ex
claimed "Why, man! they can't
put you in jail on that charge!"
His client replied very impatiently,
"Wei', I don'o care for the argu-
meins mat suow now tuey van t

put me in j an. 1 uey nave not U1C
)er: VtQV." Oa the same grounds
the arguments which indicate that
the South can't manufacture certain
grades of cotton goods to compe'e
with the world seem to be rather
weak, aud quite oblivious to the
fact that they have "got there''

It is the custom of meny persons
to purchase, at the close of each
year, "diaries," in which they pro

fact, their own private histories in
a series of annnal volumes.
As these autobiographical me
moranda are only iatended for the
eyes of the parties who commit
them to paper, it might be thought
that they would be candid aud

The Iron Crown of Lombard.
When Napoleon the First was
crowned King of Italy at Milan,
in 1805, says Lippincott's Maga
zine, he placed the iron crown
of the kings of Lombardy upon
his head with his own hands,
exclaiming "Dicw me Va donne,
gare a qui la touch ." ("God lias
given it to me, beware who
touches"). This, according to
Scott, was the motto attached to i
the crown by its ancient owners. :
The crown takes its name
from the narrow iron band
within it, which is about throe'
eighths of an inch broad and
one-tenth of an inch in thick-
Tradition says it was made-

cross to protect him in battle.
Afterwards it was used in the
ooronations of tlie 'Lombard
kings primarily at that of
