AN EARLY MORNING FIRE.
A Serious Loss to the Household of the
Mrs. Motte's large two-story dwelling
house on Nauce street was burned be
tween three and four o'clock on Mon
day morning. The fire alarm was
given at 3.17 a. m. Mrs. Motte was
aroused shortly bofore that hour by the
fumes of smoke, and she awoke the
balance of the household.
Mr. E. S. Motte discovered the fire
in the ceiling of the pantry on the first
f oor on the northeart corner of the
house. Mr. Motte, Mr. Chas. A. Bow
man and Capt. Lipscomb went to work
to check the fire, but they could not
get sufficient water and help. They
then began to save the furniture and
Mr. E. S. Motte saved a portion of
his furniture. Nothing was saved from
the second foer, occupied by Mr. Chas.
A. Bowman and family, Mrs. Ewart,
and Mrs. Motte's family.
Mr. Bowman lost everyLing-furni
ture, clothing, family portraits-except
Mrs. Ewart lost all her furniture and
family portraits, etc.
Mrs. Aotte saved some of her furni
ture, but lost many valuable family
relics, including a portrait of Judge
Ward of provincial days and a mahog
ony table that had been a heirloom for
a century and a half.
It is supposed that the fire caught
from matches carried between the
walls by rats. A new roof had just
been put on the house and the last
thing Captain Motte did on Saturday
evening was to pay $140 for the work.
The house was so far from the fire cis
terns that the fire department was
powerless to do anything.
The house was insured for $1,500 in
Mr. S. P. Boozer's agency of the North
America of Philadelphia. The house
was worth about $2,500. There was no
insurance on any of the furniture.
Mrs. Eloise M. Brown lost all her
furniture, which she left in the house
when she moved to Seneca. A letter
received by a lady friend from her on
Monday afternoon stated that'she was
coming to Newberry the next day to
move her furniture to Greenville.
The house was built by Dr. Peter
Moon, and has been owned and occu
pied by the Motte family about twenty

IT WAS SOLID COLD.
A Valuable Inage Discovered in an O:d
C1UAHUA, August 23.-Up in the
mountains about thirty miles from this
city is an old Catholic mission. The
church is said to be one of the oldest
on the continent, having been built
just after the subjugation of the Aztecs.
The church is closely guarded and no
other white man thaii the priest h:ts
ever been permitted to enter its sacred
precincts by the Indians. It has al
ways been snpposed that the cause of
this rigid exclusion was the supersti
tion of the natives, but an adventure
some young American artist has dis
covered that there was a method in
the apparent madness of the descen
dants of the Montezumas.
A party of tourists went out from
Chihuahua to the old village for the
purpose of seeing the sights and taking
pictures of the Indians and old build
ings. When they were refused admis
sion to the church they at once con
cluded there was something there that
they ought to see. They visited the
priest and tried to induce him to let
them in. but he was obdurate and gave
them no satisfaction.
In the party was a young man from
Illinois named William Morris. He
determined at all hazards to see inside
the church, and at once set about lay
ing his plans.
e prepared himself with a camera,
with a flash light attachment and a
bottle of agua ardienta or Mexican
whiskey, in which he placed enough
morphine to produce sleep. He then
s.untered along to where the old guar
dian was sitting and engaged his at
tention. The conversation was limited,
but the bottle spoke for itself -and it
was not difficult to induce the old man
to take two or three drinks. Morris
then passed on, but soon returned and
found the Indian fast asleep.
He quickly forced a window and
gained entrance to the church. The
interior was very common, but upon
the altar was a small statute of the
Virgin, which Morris at first supposed
to be gilt, but as it As the only thing
in the place that h.L the appearance
of being of value, and.as it had a
peculiar lustre, he gave it a closer ex
The statute was about a foot high and
when he took hold of it he could barely
move it. Struck with its extraordinary
weight he lifted it and the found that
it weighed not less than one hundred
and fifty pounds. This convinced him
that it was pure gold, and he took a
flash light picture of the image and
altar and made his exit.
He told his story to the other meni
bers of the party and they concluded to
get the facts from Father La Duniere.
The old priest was much surprised
when asked about the golden statue of
the Virgin, and at first refused to talk,
but when convinced that it had teen
seen he said that it was pure gold and
had been made from the ornaments and
idols of the old Aztecs when they were
They were induced to make offerings
of this kind, and when all had done so
the gold was melted and run into the
statue. Father La Dumere refused to
give an estimate of the value of the im
age, but If it is as heavy as Morris
thinks it must be worth fully $50,000.
Father La Dumere said that in many
of the churches i the interior there
were similar statues, but the Indians
were so jealous that it was dangerous
to attempt to penetrate the mysteries
of the churches. He advised the party
ot to let it be known that they had
seen the statue, for the Indians might
take extreme measures to prevent it
becoming known outside of the town.
