Count niitkiewiczN Career.
The New York Times saya : The Count
Eugene Mitkiewicz; who looms up in Wash
j ington, claiming to be the possessor of val?
uable concessions from the Chinese Govern
I meat, is believed to be the same person who
j hasrecord in the police department of
j New York.
"Ah I remember Mitkiewicz," said an old
! detective, "he was an overgrown boy, pro
I babiy 17 year.-; ot age, a Russian by birth
arid well educated. He was thin and
straight, with dark complexion and beauti?
ful teeth. His manner was polished and I
! shouid call him a typical ladies' man. The
I author of 'The New York Tombs, Its Secrets
and Mysteries,' mentions him in that work.
The chapter referred to eays that in 1S63 a
young foreigner, calling himself Eugene
Mitkiewicz, stopped at the Fifth Avenue
Hotel. He entertained many of the young
bloods at supper and numerous ladies
sought to secure his attentions. One in par?
ticular be accompanied during her drives,
and it happened that ho took a diamond
ring from her linger, saying ho would wear
it for a few days. After a week or two the
young lady's friends asked that tho ring be
returned. It was, but with a paste gem in
place of the pure brilliant. Mitkiewicz. was
arrested, but was finally released after some
confinement in the Toombs on premising to
en I is) tor tho war. Young Mitkiewicz was
taken to a recruiting oDice, but escaped ac
tive service in some way. In 18S0, be was
arrested in Baltimore for false pretenses,
but was acquitted. He had been in the coal
business there and in Washington with J. A.
Cooke, now of Stauutou, Va.
"Last year a military gentleman in Wash?
ington asked for a record of the Count, who
was engaged to tho daughter of an ex-Chief
Justice of the United States Supreme Court.
The uoblemuu's history waB carefully inves?
tigated aud tho above iacts were revealed
aud it is presumed that the engagement was
broken oil". Count Mitkiewicz married Miss
Caroline Lester in li>71, in Grace Church, at
Amherst. After this ceremony the couple
i were remarried by a Catholic priest in the
hotel parlor. The Countess died in
1SS5, leaving several little children."
Other New York papers allego that ho
i3 a bigamist, a swindler, and an
iinposter of tbo most adventurous and dan?
gerous type. His amours at Rochester, Am?
herst aud elsewhere, aud his business ex
ploits in Washington, Philadelphia and
other cities are related at great leugth, and
his right to the title of count is denied.
In an interview with a reporter the Count
said : "I did not inteud to say anything in
reply to the ca!uiunie3 heaped upon me by
the press. Admitting that I may have been
guilty of some indiscretions in life, why
rli.-.uid they all have been raked up at tbis
time? But I defy auy ono to say that I
ever did anything for which I have causo to
blush. These people that are spreading these
stories against me are doing it for a purpose.
The Turribuli crowd are jealous. They
threw me over; now they regret it. The
Bell telephone crowd are afraid of n combi
nation ol ihe Mackay-Bennett cable, the
Posta; Company and others against the
Western Union. They may well be. Any
paper that priuts lies about me will be made
to stiller. I've got the money now to fight
them, and you can rest assured I will."
A Girl's Confession.?A sensational de
velopment occurred on Wednesday before
the Gloucester county grand jury in Wood
berry, N. J., in tho case of Mark Ware, a
laboring man, of that city, charged by his
seventeen year-old daughter with assault?
ing her. Ware was arrested on tho charge
abo il six weeks ago, aud he furnished bail
lor his appearance at court. While the
grand jury was considering the case they
were iui'ormed that there were several im
portal witnesses to be heard. Three doc?
tor who had attended tbo girl at the birth
of th;. child were admitted, aud they testi?
fied that she told them Henry Gausch was
the author of her ruin, and bad attempted
to conceal it by illegal means. Miss Ware,
in her confession, implicated a prominent
physician of Woodbury, who, she said, sent
ber the medicine by Gausch's direction.
This testimony created a sensation. Tho
grand jury immediately quashed the indict?
ment against Ware, and Judge Parker or?
dered the arrest of Henry Gausch, who
went to jail iu default of $5,000 bail. It is
also said thai the physician narrowly es?
caped indictment, the only thing that saved
him being that be did not treat tho girl in
A citizen of Gainesville, Ga., whose pet
cow suddenly showed symptoms of going
dry, consulted a cow doctor, who decided
that she had the ' hollow tail," and split
the tail, inserted a quantity of salt and tur?
pentine, at,d bound it up. Going out the
next day to see how the cow was getting
along, her owner caught a half grown pig, |
which he kept iu the same lot, busilv ea i

The Gold Mining Company (location. Music Mountains, A. T ,) is as
sound a mining enterprise as was ever placed on the market, and its
possibilities have never been exceeded. Every share should double in
value within a year, and they may quadruple, as they are based on
property that would ordinarily have been capitalized ten (10) times as
great on account of its known richness and promise.
The shares are made small so that any one can invest. Subscriptions
for five shares are as welcome as those for hundreds.
Every dollar of earnings will go to the stockholders in dividends, as
there is nothing else that they can be used for.
A Wisewell mill, capacity 20 tons per day, with powerful machinery,
has been purchased and will be on the ground ready for erection at the
mine within the next thirty days.
The solid basis upon which the company is founded and the practical
proofs of the richness of the mine have already secured the confidence
of the public, and the stock has steadily advanced in selling value.
Within the last few days bona fide sales have been made at par.
There is no better stock on the market for a permanent investment.
