Ducked to Escape Arrest.
Quite a racket was raised at the N.
& S. wharf last Monday night As
near as the Bugle man could ascertain
the facts are as follows: Walter Grice,
colored is wanted in Craven county for
murder. It being supposed that he
was in this "vicinity," "MnC.'Lupion, a
detective of New Bern, accompaned by
a Mr. Brooks, for identification saw a
colored man on the steamer which was
about to leave for New Bern, and sup
posing him to be Grice, the man want
ed, 'Brooks accosted him as Walter to
which name the negro assumed, Brooks
then attempted to draw his gun and
called for help. As he did so the negro
bolteJ a:ross the whurf and jumped
down on the railroad and secreted him
self under the wharf in the water, and
though diligent search was made he
could not be found. Tuesday morning
he gave himself up and proved not to
be the man wanted. He said he 're
mained in the water until 3 o'clock
when he flipped out and went to a
negroe's house to warm. He stated
that he lost his overcoat, hat, fifteen
('ollars in money and tick 3 1 to New
Bern. Send over another detective.

With the March Designer begins an
exceedingly interesting continued story
"A By-Path in Altruria," by Mrs,
Susie Bouchelle Wight, whose clever
short stories are well known to maga
zine readers. It is charmingly and ap
propriately illustrated by J. A. Wil
liams, and will run through several
numbers. Craig S. Thorns contributes
one of his characteristic articles, "The
Seeds of Trees," accompanied by re
productions of photographs made by
the author, and Anne O'Hagen sup
plies a most laughable little comedy,
"A Question of Etiquette," for three
performers. A short story, "The Re
volt of Margaret Hey wood," by the
popular writer, Isabel Gordon Curtis,
carries with it a hint to overambitious
fathers of families, while "The Story
of Billy," by Gabrielle E. Jackson goes
far in encouraging humanity toward
dumb creatures. "Our American
Daughter" is told what sheshould lead

Suicide of Man And Woman At

History of Capital
" " City, v
Raleigh, Jan. 8 Jane Bcasley, a col
ored woman residing at 532 South Mar
tin street Saturday night, rented i
room to William H. Hood, of this eity,
who afterward returned accoinpanied
by a woman by the name of1- Violet
Page, an unfortunate in the J 'red light
district," and the pair committed sui
cide in each other's arms in the bed
which they had occupied in apparent
good and usual health. More than the
everyday touch of tragedy attaches t
the affair, for the reason that the man
was popular and esteemed among a
wide circle of friends here in Raleigh
as well as elsewhere, having married in
this city, and leaving a wife and two
small children as well as a mother and
three sister and two brothers, all of
whom reside here. The remains were
removed last night froni Brown's un
dertaking parlors to his late home and
the interment will be made today. The
expenses for the burial of the Page
woman will be borne by tho women
who Tiad been her associates.
Hood went to the home of Jane Bcas
ley where he insisted on accommodation
for the night for himself. The old
woman at first refused (according to
her own statement) then yielded and
gave him the keys to the room, Some
what later, ; between the hours of
eleven and twelve Hood returned with
Violet Page, and the two entered the
room. ,. The negro woman Dunt a nre
in the room on account of the com
plaints of the couple as to being cold,
after which she went to her room near
by and retired. There was, according
to her statement no unusual sound, or
anything to cause any alarm, until far
up into the morning yesterday, when
she heard heavy .brathing-Sh. w
also alarmed when, r no response was
made to a continued and repeated
knocking at the doors and window of
the room. The room is a small one and
has three doors, one of which opens
into the piazza, another into the hall
of the house, and the third into the
room occupied by the keeper of the
house. Failing after so many calls to
arouse the occupants of tho room the
negro woman called relatives of the
dead man and an officer of the police
force. Policeman Buck responded and
found the unfortunate pair locked in
embrace. The woman was dead but
some signs of life still were apparent
in the man. A physician was instant
ly summoned, as was the county coro
ner, but Hood was beyond skill and all
human aid. An inquest was held. The
verdict was all there could be death
by means of laudanum. Hard by the
bed whereupon rested the inanimate
forms there rested nine empty bottles,
of the two ounce size drained of their
contents and bearing the label of a
Greensboro druggist This view geet-
ed the gaze of relatives and the officer
who was forced to break in the door
behind which so great tragedy was
lurking, j : ",
Violet Page, si she was professional
ly called, was one of the younger set
of women who Rev. Dr. Massee, of the
Baptist Tabernacle had tried to recall,
whom he had rescued and sent from the
city some months ago. She had for long
possessed an influence over Hood that
was at times irresistable, and it was
only a short time ago, possibly within
the scope of ten days, that he was
taken from her and sobered after
drinking Bpeli that had covered several
days. Again and again he had returned
to her and they had made several trips
together over the railroads in thi3 vi
cinity. The woman at first applied to
Bertha Brown, with whom she had
lived for a room Saturday night, but
was refused, and it is supposed that
other places were tried, with equal
fruitlcsaness, until tho room of the ne
gro Jane Beasley was secured. It
seems there was some feeling between
the dead woman and those with whom
she been, wont to spend her luter days.
ALii'r chapter of the tragedy was
written in the note found near the dead
man in which ho left a watch t' ouo
U r, a r ' 1 rh-: to n:!..r, ; 1 a
life insurance policy t wo thousand
lollaj-s ($2,000) to his wife. ; Then too,
Hood had tried to give up hard drink
ing by treatment - at Keeley and at
other like places in the State. He had
held severel positions of responsibi'ity,
one of which was with the register of
deeds, who had a high regard for his
services and ability. Later he was con
nected with one of the ' drygoods Btores
here, where he worked until Christmas
eve. It so turns out that ho had been
twice married, having obtained a di
vorce from his first wife. .
., The name of the dead woman is said
to have been Bessio Peudley, and she
had been an inmate of an orphanage,
leaving which she went to Durham',
whre she worked in a cotton mill, and
leaving which, she came . to , Raleigh
with Bertha Brown, a notorious woman
who has figured so frequently in the
police courts of Raleigh and Durham,
The dead woman was about 22 years of
age,' slender and graceful in full figure
and with a not unpleasing face, crown
ed by auburn hair. ' ; ' : -
Large numbers of persons viewed the
bodies in the undertaker's dead-room.
It was not until after dusk that the
body of Hood was taken to his late
home. ; His father was a Confederate
soldier ' and one of the first men in
this county, and was for years a clerk
in the office of register of deeds and
later held that position. He had lost
one arm in service. Yesterday's trage
dy adds one more horror to Raleigh's
list which has been quite marked in
the past few years, and it will attract i
attention to Raleigh's tenderloin dis
trict, against which so much has re
cently been said, and the area of which
was reduced some years ago by court

Special to Farmers !
We would advise all who contemplate
using lime on their land this season to
try granulated oyster shells, the new
and convenient way of preparing shells
for quick results and lasting effects, to
use with fertilizer distribution. This
form preserves all the virtue of the
orinrtntJ, shells, i which is known to be
lime, ammonia, nitrogen, and salt, be
sides much animal matter; easier and
safer to handle than quick lime, and
costs less and lasts longer, packed in
200 to bags. The output of this plant
limited, so would advise your order
ing a trial lot at once. The leading
Farm Journals of the country are
strongly urging the lime and certainly
you can't go astray in buying this pro

French comedy-drama. ', They were
welcomed with a woll filled house. The
play is like hundreds of others and has
a few redeeming things about it The
company all around are very capable,
and give a good show.
The specialties are very clever and
enjoyable. Miss Gypzene is a charming
and graceful comedienne and her act
was well received. Peruchi, the great
spieler, is as great as ever and his little
specialty of making the announcements
is "all cream."
The show tonight will be "The
