a search for him, Hiss A'-iie Beese,
who, has been a servant in the house
for about a year, looked through the
keyhole of the bath-room door,
which was locked, aid saw Mc
Geoch lying on the floor with a re
volver in his hand. Be had shot
himself through the mouth and
death was presumably instantane

ifctified Major W W Rowley, quar-
termaste r of the Soldiers' Home, an
intimate acquintince of Mr, Mc
Geoch, who immediately sent for
Mr, MeGeoch's son. Arthur, who re
sith?sSn the city. When found Mr,
McGeoch had on his business suit
and was apparently ready to Btart
for the city. The servants noticed
nothing peculiar about his actions
before the t'mt.
Mr. MeGeoch's suicide is taken to
be the mult ol divorce procctdirg
begun last Holiday by Mrs. Mc
Geoch cn the ground of incompati
bility of temperament.
Mrs. McGeoch was Mrs. Libbey,
of Kenwood, a suburb of Chicago,
when she met Mr. McGeoch. They
were married about eight years ago
at the Leland Hotel. Chicago.
Since their maniage they have lived
at the .National avenue homestead

three children, a sen and two
daughters, who after his marriage
occupied a bouso oa Grand avenue

Late Literary Rote.;, .
Two- very important f acts in con
nection with tha.. new era of maga
zines as illustrated in the December
Cosmopolitan. Its fiction is by
Stevenson, the last story written be
fore his death, V"0mda," 3irah
Grand, Zingwill, and the liegiuning
of James Lne Allen's new Ken
tucky realistic story, "Butterflies."
Probably'no stronger arraj of fiction
has ever bees presented in any maga-
. - zine money could not buy better.
Nor has any magazine eyer had a
larger number of really distinguish
ed artists engaged upon the illustra
tion of a single number. The realer
might be puzzled to know how such
a number ran be made at the price
of ten cent But the nvigaztue it
self affords tbe solution. It contains
139 pages of advertising, which, as
the publishers aauounc, is from
$4000 to $8000 more net eaeh art
vertising than was ever before print
ed in in any magazine, of any kicd,
and ,'.n any country. It breaks the
world's record in tb'i publishing
business. Moreoyer, the cost of the
artists and authors who appear in
this number ie divided amocgit 400,
000 copies, br.ngin tl e cost per
copy proportionately low. The
Cosmopolitan minks that tbe ten
cent magazine, bringing, as it docs
the best iu art an. literature into all
chases, is an educational movement
second in importance only to that of

The case of Jarndyce ys. Jarndyce,
alias Sherrill vs. the Western Union
Telegraph. Company, has been finally
disposed of. -
Someyears ago Mr. H Z Sherrill,
of Indiana, who was on a visit to re
latives in Iredell, and while here his
wife sent him a telegram notifying
him of the death of their child. The
telegram came to Statesville but
Mr. Sherrill being unknown in town
never received it. He sued the
company for damages on tin ground
that it did not use proper diligence
in delivering the message. The
case went the rounds of the courts,
It had about eight hearings and
went to the Supreme court three
times. The third time was the
charm. At the August term of
Iredell Superior court the case was
tried and resulted in a verdict of
$1,100 damages for the plaintiff,
The defendant company appealed
and the Supreme court has just
handed down a decision affirming
the judgment of the court below.
Mr. Sherrill will now get his $1,100
minus his attorney's fees. States

Another Csernl Man Has Fallen
On the morning of the 25th, juat
fifteen minutes past twelve o'clock,
onr beloved neighbor and dear
friend, Mr. John O Corriher, of this
place, calmly passed away if ter an
illress of only nine days. He was
about forty -six years of age, leaving
a wife and two children to mourn
their 1038. In his death not only
his church (which he was very
devoted to) sustained an irrepairable
loss but also our town and surround
ing country. In his death I have
lost one of my best friends, though I
have known him only a little over
Tbe words that now fall from the
lips of nearly every one who knew
him is: "He was my best friend."
He will be badly missed ii our lit
tle town and especially by the poor
as he was always most thoughtful of
them. It is bard to giye up such a
friend but we feel that he is now at
rest iu that beautiful land "Just
over the river,'' free from all the
cares and turmoils of this earthly
existence. Though fond of life and
its pleasure?, he never forgot the
woes of others, and always carried
sunshine with him wherever he
went, scattering many seeds of kind
ness along the dull, weary pathway
of endless toil and futile hopes, the
poor and suffering knew only too
well. When the grim shadows of
death were stealing over him he had
no fear, only desiring to live to
train his children for usefulness in
church and state, but conscious to
the last, he manifested the same
perfect faith and Christian fortitude
that had characterized his beantif ol
life, and thus he passed away in the
full assuranc3 of a blissful rest in
the realms of Immortality.

Alliance today purchased from the

the building for use as a tannery
and shoe factory, and also for Alb

are all of brick save one. The main
building is 26x215, three statics
high; the chapel and mees hall
215x30; and there are other build
ings of convenient size. For twenty
years these have been unoccupied.

358; the profits being 26,000,000;and
the percentage of profit on capital
invested .27.55. Notth Carolina's
per cent, of the output is 3.52 per
capita 42 per cent. This State's
share of the output is $5,700,000.and
of profits $678,000. So this is big
money in the shoe business.
A LCboreh Incendiary.
The Goldsboro Argus tells of the
burnirg of a newly built church at
Indian Springs, about six miles
from Seven Springs, which bad been
built jointly by the Methodists and
Baptists of that place in common.
It was an incendiary fire and the
church was burned only a week be
fore it was to have been dedicated.
A remarkable thing connected
with the affair is that each congre
gation formerly had its own sepa
rate house of worship and they were
both destroyed by incendiaries, and
as soon as this one was built to take
the place of both it was likewise
burned. The people are justly in
dignant and anxious to detect the
criminal. It makes a total of $3,"
000 worth of church property de
stroyed there within a few months

suddenly. A numter of relatives
were present . .
