BEHBER MARRIAGE MARKETS. The Brides Arc Painted Surprisingly ntid Laden With Borrowed Finery. Among the Kabylo clans in northern Africa women are looked upon as chat? tels to be sold like other possessions, and they are accordingly disposed of to tho person who makes the highest offer to the father or other male guardian. Many of the- Berber tribes of Morocco, Algiers and Tunis hold yearly marriage mar? kets, to which all the young marriagea? ble girls and widows from thu neigh? boring villages aro brought. The mar? kets aro attended not only by young men and old on the outlook for a wife, but also by a curious crowd anxious to sc-3 what lots are for sale and what prices thoy fetch. Tho girls, when on view, aro allowed to have a voice in the se? lection of their husbands and may do-, cline'any proposal. They aro arranged in rows right across tho market place; decked in tho most telling Berber costumes; painted, powdered and patched in the highest style of Kabylo art; loaded down wit...

accomac court-house, Va. Saturday, December 22, 1894. Entered at the Postoffice at Accomao c. h., Va., as second-class matter. An article in this issue under the caption "of interest to our farmers" should be read carefully by all of them, and everyone of them will, in our opinion, act wisely who profits by the suggestions therein contained. No one will read the article and at? tempt to question the soundness of reasoning of the writer. It is such a plain, practical, common sense pro? duction that no one could disparage the views of the writer if he chal? lenged them. That farming as con? ducted by many of our farmers at present does not pay, is a proposition that will be accepted without dis? sent?how to make it pay is the question, which the article clearly and forcibly answers. Intelligent farming we believe, al? ways pays with us, but it consists, as t.learly pointed out by the writer, in not planting one crop, however, well our soil and climate may be adapted to it, to the excl...

THE TELEPHONE. Does the fso of the Instrument Save Time, or Does It Waste It? There- is a general doubt whether the telephone has really ever saved any net amount of men's time. Perhaps today one may save himself half a day's jour? ney by the nso of the telephone, and perhaps tomorrow somu one wastes half an hour of his time by calling him needlessly over the instrument, and next day somebody wastes another half hour, and so on until tho saved half day is put over ou to the other side of the account. There is a class of people who aro iu a special way the victims of the tolephonc. They haven't one at their elbow nor a cheaply paid employee to answer calls for them. They are within calling distance, and no ono hesitates to call them over that distance. Imagine yourself one of these people. You are actively at work in your room, developing a lino of thought that has just como to you and may not come again. Somo ono comes in and says, "You'ro wanted at the tolephonc?Bos? ton, 6199.

The Sorrowful History of tho Souvenir Half Dollars. Tho order of Secretary Carlisle to qso the Columbian souvenir silver coins as cash is the closing chapter in tho his? tory of an unsuccessful venture. In suite of tho efforts of the promoters of tho exposition to sell these half dollars at double their face value, with tho gen? eral co-operation of the hanks, the news? papers and a number of leading stures in Chicago, New York, Boston, Phila? delphia and elsewhere, about 8,600,000 remain unsold and in the hands of tho treasury authorities. At first tho Chicago people pleaded with Secretary Carlisle to hold tho coins till they could raise a fund to redeem them at their double price in the hope of saving tho value of those already sold, which would be bound to doolino as soon as tho remaining coins were thrown into tho ordinary channels of trade. This was done, but the attempt was fruitless, and a few days ago i he projectors of tho scheme notified tho secretary that they could not d...

accomac court-house, va. Saturday, January 12, 1895. Entered at the Postofflce at Acconiac c. H., Va., as second-class matter. "The way to make a prosperous year Is to make it" says the Louisville Courier-Journal, and among other suggestions in that direction offers the following: Quit borrowing trouble. Quit conjuring up hard times.'' The advice thus given to the readers of that Journal is no le69 applicable to the readers of the E>T tkkprisr. Our people indulge as lustily in the cry of hard times^ perhaps, as they do anywhere? without reason to a great extent, we believe?but if our surmises in the latter respect are not correct, what good is there in growling aud whin? ing about it? Helping: to make times better, if things are not like we would have them, by working for it is surely far wiser?remembering as the Journal, suggests "that the sun will shine, the rains will fall^ health and strength are yours and that your fortune is with yourself and not with the stars.*' Already t...

It is in ac? cord with the views entertained and expressed by him when a candidate for their suffrages.

He has demonstrated to the satisfaction of everyone, by his course of late, which has put the tongues of all the looters of the treasury ro wagging, that he has the courage of his convict tons It is gratifying to note that he pro poses to continue the fight on the line which he has made it, and why no*?
