Mrtko tho Globe.Glrelllng Ilaco
Mora Exciting.
'NcllioBly "Is tho name at tho vory head of
the pass enger-llst of tlio Hamburg palace steatn-
Iship Augusta Victoria on her present trip.
Why shouldn't it bo7 la sho not the first of
her rex to undertake tho circumnavigation of
the globe?
Many admirers and friends of tho daring
little Mi Bly will watch her progress with
much Interest. , The numbir of people who
havo put a girdle around tho earth 1b not
Col. Knox, who has bocn "around" twice,
and has wrltton charming books to boys on
his adventuros, consumed eighteen months in
each trip. Hut he says:
"I bell ova Mies Illy can and will do it In
sevcnty.flvo days. In fact I onco figured out a
trip to bo done in seventy days. The sailing Is
plain and clear from Now York to Singapore on
the Indinn mail ronte, but between there and
Kong Kong tho monsoon may opposo and Im
pcle tho progress of tho fair mariner, Tho wind
blows one way six months In tho year and re
verses for the other sit. Miss Illy will sail
against the wind through the China Hen, and
the time lout In that way is throo or four days,
but a norther ' will help her amazingly through
the JtodBea."
Tbanncoy M. Depew is enthusiastic ovor Mlsa
HU'h trip. " I have all confidence in her grit
ml capacity," said he, "and I haven't tho
si 4hte t doubt that she will accomplish what
alio has ret out to do.
' I fxankly confoss I believe & man would havo
b en mnch better adapted to tho task than a
woman. It is a plucky and a hazardous journey
BJ fo! i woman. Sho passes through thp Orient,
Hj w ere women are abjectly dependent on the
BJ men. May bo MIbs Nelly will bo tho evangel of
BJ her "ex In tho East, where womon have been lit
BJ etady effaced since Zenobia and Cleopatra."
H This U the tenor of all comments on the Jcrar-
H l ey. That a slender, frail, gfrlish little woman
jBj like Mlns Bly should bo tho first to undertake
BJ this nn,triod race around the globe almost takes
H the broatli away, and Mies Bly i once more the
BJ marvel of her set.
H The Eveniwi World has received kind words
BJ a- d words of pralao for the fair traveller from
BJ many cities.
BJ At tho Johns Hopkins University, Maryland,
IJ tin) studonts are studying maps, charts, timo
HJ tables and routes, and a member of the Mary-
BJ laud Historical Society prophesies that Miss Bly
HJ will bo ablo to reach Now York two days at least
HJ ahead of her scheduled time
j j no enterprise 01 ius n ohld is uoing com-
BJ mentod upon everwhere, and it has become
BJ characteristic tor people to believe that The
H Would will accomplish what it sets out to do.
Hj A writer has sagely remarked that the alpho-
HE bet and tho printer art alone of human Invem-
jH pons can compare with the inventions which
BJ shorten distance as civilizers of the world.
BM Nellie Bly will demonstrate how much we havo
Bl advancod in this regard since tho three-year
HH cruises of Magellan, Drake and Cook.
HH MISS ply's confidence.
HH The most remarkublo thing about tho trip is
BM tho characteristic nonchalance of Miss Illy and
BJ the matter-of-course manner in which she set
BJ about tho work. Bho was as methodical, uuper-
Bl turhedand unrattled as though her "assign-
BJ stent " had boen only to go ovor to Jorsoy and
BJ "writenp"areocption.
IHJ The Boston people wero rapturous ovor Miss
BJ Nellie's undertaking and shout: " A hit, apM-
HH pable hit, for Miss Bly and The Would. "
HH A. T. Anderson, thctonrist, is quotod by the
BJ Cleveland Leader as saying: "Even tho in-
HH tenuity of The World could not duviso a more
BJ attractive enterprise. It will bo very valuable
BJ as a test of transportation facilities on tho most
BJ far-reaching scale." The editor of the Leader
BJ is sanguino of Miss Blv's success, for ho
BJ has Just received a lotter from Biam,
J 14,000 mllos 'away, which was only
BJ thirty days on its way, and Senator V. C. Taylor
BJ savs; "Jules Verne didn't count on The
H WotiLn when he made the etghty-day schedule
J of I'lilneaBTogg's imaginary trip. TheWobld'b
J race is too fast even 'or Verne's imagination. "
BJ Capt. Albers, a standi admirer of his pretty
BJ ''tt.e passenger, assured her that the Augusta
BJ Victoria would do her best to land her in Sonth-
J ampton as speedily as possible, and added that
BJ lie believed lie could gain a wholo da? on Miss
BJ IHr schedule at London.
BJ And so Miss Bly, with one gown, for her grlp-
J ck w too small to contain the second one, is
1BJ ' her glorious way, with tho kindliest thoughts
J r a million admirers hovering about her.
BJ Nobody doubts for an instant that If any
J living being, man or woman, could put tho
J Bjf'Hf round the globe In soventy-flvo days, tho
Micky Nellie will do It, and stepping off the
BJ "n in this city, go about her business as
J 'hough she had only boon out of town over
BJ night,
J Imitation Is tho slnccrest flattery. It is not a
BJ aimcult thing to do that which j on know somo-
I BJ ehe has done, and to eraulato another is
J J "y Ii oqnont act that youadraiio tho pluck,

Walker wanted hor to start immediately, only
ho would send her West Instead of East.
MIkh Bisland considered, arcoptcd, andfiom
a study of tho time-tables concluded that sho
could equal, if not excel, tho timo set by Miss
Bly of her cruise.
Bho could reach San Francisco by rail in timo
to catch tho Oceanic, of the Oriental and Occi
dental Steamship Company, which sails Nov. 'Jl
for Yokohama tho same ship which Miss Bly
expecta to ride from Japan to America In Janu
ary. This would land hor in Hong Kong Just four
days after the European steamship had sailed,
and she would havo to wait thoro eight or ten
days till tho arrival of the Cathay, on which
Miss Bly hones to riach the Bntlsh-Chlneso city,
and then, both fair tourists Iwing "stalled,"
they might chum It togothcr for three days,
spending Christmas together on tho little Island
which marks one of tho spots in tho Empire on
which tho sun ncvor sets.
This is the "half-way house " In tho tour, but
Miss Bly would get away three or four days
ahead of Miss Bisland, whose time-tablo is rather
perversely against her.
Miss Bisland's schcdnle takes her on almost
exactly tho same routo as that taken by tho Bly,
only revcrred, and she hopes to reach Marsoilles
on Sunday, Jan. 21, 1800. If she does, she
may bo ablo to reach H.ivro and sail for New
York on the samo day. If she is a day late sho
will tako a steamer from Southampton on Mon
day, Jan. 22, and reach New York, Jan. 21).
That would bo two days later than the ar
rival of Nellie Bly, and Miss Bly rojoctcd the
chodulo adopted by hor Southern competitor
after cwcful Btudy and calculation, boing con
vinced that tho eastward ornlso was tho quicker

BANoon, Me.. Nov. 15. Eastern Maine is now
discussing a story which has sensational fea
tures, equalling tho famous yarns about Cant.
Kidd and his treasures. For many years it has
been said that Kiddllid actually bury much of
his ill-got ten wealth qlong tho Maine coast, and
from timo to timo arious attempts havo been
made to discover tho supposed hiding-place.
Many hours nt dead of night havo heon wasted
in a arch for this treasure. Ho far as known
the seaichcrs havo had only their labor for their
pains. Of late, however, a story has been made
public which Iiuh created much excitement hero.
Whether it has to do with tho rienes of Cant.
Kidd or romu other pirate or relates to wealth
honestly gained is a question.
About a century ago a lakish-looking schooner
is snid to have boino doun to Maces Bay, which
strikes in fiom the liav of Futuly, nn tho New
Brunswick coast. Alter somo mancouvring
sho ran into tho bay and camo to anchor. A
boat was lowered, and with mnllled oars the men
pulled for the shore. 1 he moon peeped through
the clouds sufficiently bright to throw light
upon tho wholo proceedings. The men dug a
hole and buried their treasure. The bearingB
wero taken and the boat again headed for tho
vessel, which was toon running out of the bay
with a still breeFe af tor her. The men who were
engaged in this business have long boen dead,
and the whereabouts of tlie treasure has been
kent a secret until recently, when the chart lo
cating it found its way into ennous hands, who
determined to investigate The secret was
known to two only, who a year ago went to the
spot, dug up tjie long-hidden box. and leturned
if empty to its hiding-place. In evidence of
their snccu'S it is said that one of the men has
erected a lino dwelling in the suburbs of St.
Stephen. They refuse to divnliro their secret
or to make any explanation. It is well Known
by Calais people that the man who has built tho
honse was poor a short timo ago. Now ho seems
to have plenty of money, lie formerly worked
as a common laborer in Calais.

, London, Out., Nov. 15. Tho Earl of Mnnnt
Cakhcl, whoie death in Ireland waB announced
yosterday. resided near here for ten years a tho
Hon. Oeorgo Mooro Bmythe. with his fathor,
who then held the title. Ho was a remarkable
character. Aftor being ousted in Ireland under
tho Encumbered Estates act, they immigrated
here and bought a farm at Komoka.
The houso was in a lonely wood, weird
and picturesque. It was made the scene of wild
lovelry and old-fashioned ho-pitality. Moote
was unrainly in apeniance and eccentrio in
manners. He usually slouched about armed
with soeral pistols. Tho houso itself was au
armory, it) rooms were decorated with gnus,
pistols, swords and daggers. Every door and
window was l Milled with bullets, the rosultof
their pistol practice.
Tho late Earl was a crack shot, and owned tho
pistols with hair triggers and flint locks that
'"Fighting Fitzgerald" used in the duel men
tioned in r Charles O'Malley. " They belonged
to tho first Earl of Mount-Cashel, grandfather
of the deceased. Once in imi:S, when tho Sixty
third Ileglmcntwas camped at Komoka, Oeorgo
attempted to hit a live-cent piece at the end of
his big too and shot the toe oil. Both
father and son wero fond of eccentric
attire. It is rolated thitt when Oeorgo returnod
to Dublin he found his lather dressed in a red
shirt and cowhide boots. In IHUft Moors re
turned to Ireland, having recovered some of tho
forfeited property, and in 18H:i succeeded to
the Earldom.
