A HOLOCAUST AT OltKKNVlLLK.
Twelvo Lives Lost-One Man Cuts Ills
Throat to Kscapo Hut nlng.
A veil of grief overshadows Greenville,
Texas. Last Saturday the Ende hotel, a
three-story building, was entirely consumed by
lire and 12 of the inmates lost their lives. The
victims were Mrs. N. E. Pruitt, whose plead
ings for release from the ruins are described as
heart-rending; George Pruitt, a crippled son
of the proprietress, who was burned to death ;
Louis Albert, jeweler, burned alive; F. D. N.
Uiley, contractor, crushed to death; Frank
West, a railroad freight clerk, crushed to
death ; R. R. Neal, cotton buyer, manner of
death unknown; Miss Lou Davis, chamber
maid, burned to death ; J. E. Ford, telegraph
line repairer, crushed to death ; Hill, a mat
tress maker, manner of death unknown; and
four negro servants crushed to death.
The inmates of the house who escaned were
W. D. Pruitt, son of the pronrietor. badlv
bruised and mangled ; Dr. T. R. Turner, hor
ribly burned and crushed and who
may die; M G. Mars, of Daingerfield, badly
burned. The slightly injured are the follow
ing: D. C. Hell, painter; K. N. Denton, car
penter; Tom Victors, butcher; Lewis Morris,
Charles Brownel, railroad conductor; Percy
Cox, of Honey Grove; W. T. McClure,, a
stranger from Tennessee; Fred Ende, owner
of the building, and his wife and two daugh
ters, and a negro girl employe. The stories
told by the survivors beggar description. Dr.
Turner lay beneath the timbers till they
burned in twain and released him, but not
until he was badly burned and mangled. Mr.
Denton was, imprisoned, and would have
killed himself to escape burnlnt; to death, but
a second crash of falling walls released him.
One man cut his throat when he found that the
flames were consuming him. W. D. Pruitt
raved like a mad man when he knew of his
mother's horrible death, and it required sev
eral strong men to save him from plunging
headlong into the flames.
Says the San Antonio Times: "Mr. W.
W. Corcoran, the Washington philantthopist,
who recently reached the good old ace of 8e.
bids fair to be a rival of Peter Cooper. He
expresses his anxiety to live until he tees a
democratic administration." As Pefer
.ooper uvea 92 years the deduction drawn
irom tne remsrics 01 our Uourbon contem

The Great Wall of China.
An American engineer who, being engaged
in the construction of a railway in China, has
had unusually favorable opportunities of ex
amining the Grevt Wall, built to obstruct the
incursions of the Tartars, gives the followine
account of this wonderful work :
The wall is 1728 miles long, 18 feet wide
and 15 feet thick at the top. The foundation
throughout is of solid granite, the remainder
of compact raatonry. At intervals of between
200 and 300 yards towers rise up 25 to 40 feet
high, and 24 feet in diameter. On the top of
th- wall, and on both sides of it, are masonry
parapets, to enable the defenders to pass un
seen from one tower to another. The wall
itself is carried Irom point to point in a per
fectly straight line, across valleys and plains
and over hills, without the slightest regard to
the configuration oi the ground; sometimes,
plunging down into abysses a thousand feet
ueep. utooks ana rivers are bridged over by
the wall, while on both banks of larger
streams "ronC "'"E ers Placed.
