A Very Small Lady
Miss Della LANIER, of Raleigh, who has been on a visit to her friend, Miss POOL, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C.H. POOL, in the city, left this morning to visit her sister, Mrs. PRYOR, in Newbern. Miss LANIER is probably one of the smallest ladies in American and has a brother a year or two older about the same size. She weighs less than 40 pounds, and is 32 years old. She has a fully developed grown-up person’s mind, and a very bright one, too.
