News-Observer, Oct. th.
One of the incidents of the day was
the presentation of a very handsome
gold-headed ebony cane to Mr. Thos.
K. Bruner, assistant secretary of the
Exposition. The cane was a testimo
nial from "the boys," and was pre
sented by Mr. F. A. Olds. Mr. Bru
ner in response said :
"This evidence of your friendly
appreciation of my humble services iu
helping in the great work-of organiz
ing and carrying through this grand
exposition of our State's resources, is
most gratefully appreciated. My heart
swells with gratitude to you all, kind
friends; and while I accept your gift
and shall use it as a constant remind
er of our pleasant and gonial associa
tion here, I must beg you to remem
ber that to the untiring zeal and en
ergy of Mr. W. S. Primrose, president,
and Mr. H. E. Fries, secretary, all
honor is due. The success is theirs
they are the heroes in every sense,
true Carolinians! I believe that they
Siave accomplished much for the true
advancement of the State's industrial
interests, and that they have done
more for the State than any other two
men could have done with the same
amount of capital. Associated with
them in the capacity of assistant sec
retary, I speak from actual knowl
edge; and I assure you they have
done a great work, the beneficial re
sults of which will flow directly to
the people. This exposition has been
an eye-opener to th people of North
Carolina. It has given an impetus to
industrial energy, and its good effects
will be geen in the coming years.
Gentlemen, I thank you for the hon

Terrible End of a Georgia Girl's
. Adventurous Career.
New York Times.
News has reached New York that
a woman whose escapades have at
different times startled and shocked
the good people of three continents
has at last met with a dreadful fate
in Japan. This woman was known
to New Yorkers 16 or 17 years ago
as Mrs. John Beecher, afterwards as
the Countess Pourtales, later to the
Parisians as a lady of fashion, and
finally to the imperial circles of Yo
kohama as the favorite of the Japan
ese Prime Minister. She was a
daughter of a respectable Georgia
family and was brought to this city
a blooming girl by her mother just
after the close of the war. Appa
rently the family had saved some
means from the wreck caused by the
war, for thetmother and daughter
were able to live in good style at the
A st or House.
After awhile they moved to the
Fifth Avenue Hotel, and there the
daughter met Mr. John Beecher, at
that lime a wealthy member of a
well known liquor firm, who lived
at the hotel. It was not long before
she became Mrs. Beecher, and the
young couple left the hotel to occupy
a luxurious home. Mrs. Beecher
soon after marriage manifested a most
flirtatious and wayward disposition,
which finally so compromised her
reputation that Mr. Beecher was forc
ed to seek a divorce. This in course
of time he procured, and shortly af
terward the community was startled
by the announcement that Mrs.
Beecher had shot at Lloyd Phoenix
as he was ascending the steps of his
sister's Fifth avenue residence. She
subsequently went to Paris, where
she had not sojourned long before
she became the Countess Pourtales.
It was said she met the Count on
the steamship in which she sailed
from New York. The Count had
been attached to the French Legation
at Washington anil had married
daughter of Ben Halliday, but had
been tor some time a widoWer. The
first Countess died on a railroad
train while Hearing Chicago, whither
she was journeying.
After their marriage iu Paris Count
PourtaJes returned to his post in
Washington and carried his bride
with him, but the fame of the Coun
tess's escapades having preceded her
the couple were not well received,
aud the Count at his own request wus
speedily recalled From Paris they
went to Japan, aid there the Coun
tess's conduct was in essential respects
similar to what it had been as Mrs.
B- echer in New York, and the Count
finally abandoned her in disgust.
Eventually she openly became the
mistress of the Japanese Prime Min
ister, and in course of time attempt
eel to play as free with him as she
had done with her husbands.
But among the other barbarous
customs of that country is one that
punishes infidelity with death, wheth
er the offender, be wife or mistress.
As the story comes from those dis
tant shores, oue night two masked
men entered the wretched woman's
house, seized and bowst rung her, then
put her body into a sack and flung it
into the river. The information is
undoubtedly true, and it has been
known for some time to a number of
persons in this city, but has not here
tofore gained publication.
Fire In Chic.iffo.
A Five Story Building in Flame
NarroiolEscapes of Inmates Death
of a Brave and Heroic Man,
Chicago, Oct. 29. a large brick
building situated on the southeast
corner of LaSalle and Michigan
streets, the lower floors of which
were occupied by hide dealers and the
upper part by Fisher's eigar box fac
tory, caught fire at about noon and
is at this hour, 15.45, completely gut
ted. One man was killed by jump
ing from a window and two others
were smothered on the stairs. The
factory girls oil the upper floors es
caped with the greatest difficulty. It
is believed all oi them were saved.
The loss will reach $100,000. The
building was owned by Mr. Culver,
of Culver, Pace & Hayne, and was a
five story structure, occupied by
Schabel & Co., barbed wire manufac
turers, Campbell Printing Press Co.,
Daubeizer Bros., chewing gum m inu-
tacturers, and r isher s cigar box fac
tory. 1 lie latter was on the top
story and employed 21 men aud 18
girls. The foreman of the shop, Jas.
Larr, got all of the 37 souls together
iu good order, and coolly led them to
the fire proof stairs and safely to the
ground. Troubled with doubt as to
whether any were left behind. C;srr
quickly returned to the fifth story,
but remained a few moments too late,
as the flames had cut oft every aven
ue of escape.
He hurried to the roof and amid
the wild excitement of thousands of
people he was thrown a rope from a
building ou the opposite side ot the
street aud making the line fast he
commenced his perilous descent, while
the firemen held a heavy tarpaulin
beneath as a precaution. Suddenly
the rope snapped under the man's
weight, or was burned by the bursts
of flame, and Carr's body shot down
ward head foremost to the horror of
the crowd of people, and went direct
ly through the tarpaulin, aud was
picked up from the stones with his
neck broken and mangled almost be
yond recognition. ,
Another thrilling scene was taking
place at the fire eseape from the chew
ing gum factory. Eighteen young
girls panic stricken came down pell
mell, and when within 25 feet of the
ground, the last eight jumped to the
pavement, falling iu a confused heap.
Fortunately only three of them were
seriously injured, they receiving pain
ful cuts and bruises.
There is one way of attaining what
we may term, if not utter, at least mor
tal happiness, it is this a sincere and
tinrelaxing activity for the happiness
of others. In that one maxim is con
centrated whatever, is noble in moral
ity, sublime iu religion, or unanswer
able in truth. In that pursuit we
have all scope for whatever is excel
lent iu our hearts, and none for the
petty passions which our nature is
heir to. Tims engaged, whatever be
our errors, there will be nobility, not
weakness, in our remorse, whatever
our failures, virtue, not selfishness, in
our regrets; aud iu success vauity it
self will become holy, and triumph
eternal.- Lord Lytton.
Hickory Press: About seven miles
south of Hickory, near the South Fork
river, on the John Wilfong farm,
stands a remarkable walnut tree. It
is twenty-seven feet iu circumference,
being nearly nine feet iu diameter
three feet above the ground. It meas
ures 38 feet to the first limb, and the
limbs are in proportion to the size of
the tree. This tree is vigorous iu its
growth aud is believed to be entirely
solid. If sawed into lumber it would
make 12,000 feet, without the limbs.
Estimating this lumber at $40 per
thousand feet, its market value would
"I wouldn't give two cents," said
Col. Polk, "for a North Carolinian,
man or woman, who is not proud of
the State Exposition, and the Legis
lature ought to buy the building, and
every two years let the counties come
together aud make it eveu bigger
than it is now."
Three Great Secrets.
In those olden days when people
belreved that the sun moved, and that
the earth stood still and was flat like
a great pancake, so that yon would
fall off' the edge if you sailed far enough
to the West, tliey believed many other
strange and curious things which you
do not read so much about in your
There were three great secrets the
people of those times tried to find out
the secret of eternal youth, the se
cret of turning everything to gold,
and the secret of a universal solvent ;
and many lives were devoted to try
ing to discover these secrets and many
fortunes speut upon them as well
these great secrets whieh have never
yet been discovered, and never will be,
for they are know only to God, who
knows all thingKf
The men who devote themselves to
these things were called alchemist, and
for years and years, they toiled in their
laboratories, concocting strange mix
tures, and forming strange combina
tions, always thinking themselves on
the verge of discovery, and until they
became so fascinated ly their work
that they were scarcely able to leave
it, either for sleep, food or exercise.
The first of these secrets was that
of eternal youth, or the elixir of life.
They believed that if you could once
get a drink of this elixir or water of
life, you would never grow old, never
die. The alchemists were wise men
for their day, well versed in the mys
teries of science, aud it seems strange
that they could have believed in such
a mad theory as that. We all know
that wc must grow old and die, unless
indeed, we die in youth, but these
men were so sure of finding the secret
of eternal youth that they grew ofd
and gray in the search.
You remember when the Spaniards
came to America they felt sure of fin
ding the fountain of eternal youth.
The country was so full of wonderful,
curious, terrible things so overflow
ing with springs, of all kinds, hot,
cold, sweet and bitter, that they were
sure the fountain of youth must be
bubbling up somewhere among its
green hills. They spent long weary
years iu search of it, hundreds of them
dying by the way, of hardships and
fatigue but to fail in the end. They
never found the fountain though the
Indians told them that such a spring
flows in the sunny laud of Florida.
The second secret the alchemist tri
ed to discover was something that
would turn everything it touched in
to gold. They called it the philoso
pher's stone. They believed that
whoever possessed this stone had fab
ulous wealth in his hand, for he had
but to touch a piece of worthless wood,
stone, iron or anything else with it,
and behold it became pure, shilling,
How the alchemists toiled aud la
bored to find that stone! How they
mixed strange and strange ingredi
ents iu their crucibles, but to fail at
last ! The philosopher's stone has nev
er been discovered and never will be.
Gold is gold, and uu earthly power
or magic can can transform a piece of
dull iron into the pure, precious me
tal. The alchemists grew old and gray
and poor, spending every thing youth,
happiness and wealth, in this vain
search, when, if they had been con
tented with the good things that
tell to their lot, they might have pass
ed youthful and happy lives.
The third of these great secrets was
that ot a universal solvent that is a
solvent that would dissolve every
thing. We do not read so much
about that, for it was not so much
wealth were Miuandered iu the vain
search for it.
ri.i . .
i ue secret ot eternal voutn was
most sought for, for every one wished
to remain young and strong and to re
tain the charms and beauties that be
long only to youth. But the three
great secrets have never been discov
ered and people have quite given up
the search for them, though we still
read of them, and hear strange stories
of the alchemist in his den, surround
ed by strange vessels and curious ob
jects of which we scarcely know the
names, wasting his manhood and
wealth in the vain search for the three
