i'ROUND THE WORLD
In Two Hours, Accompanied by Nellie Bly, the Little lecturer. HEIGHT CHAT ABOUT HER TRIP, In Which an American Girl Beat a French man's Imajiiiarj Time. THE KEWSPAPER WOMEN'S BAKQTJET Jfellie Bly, the famous, plucky little traveler, with her tiny hand in the friendly clasp of Mr. Erasmus "Wilson, tripped ont on the platform of Old City Hall last even ing at the appointed time. Before her ap pearance the audience spent their time in admiring the beautiful floral offerings that graced the platform ; but from the moment the petite traveler appeared the flowers were totally ignored, and her own girlish figure and bright, animated countenance, coupled with her interesting chat, claimed the atten tion and admiration of everyone in the hall. The little lady was attired in the stylish brown costume which was manufactured in five hours by a 2f ew York tailor, and which enrobed her dainty self on her trip around the world. Her hair was worn in the school girl style which she has always affected, and which is so becoming to her, with a pretty, fluffy bang. She carried a cluster of loveiy roses, and on the table by which she took her stan was a magnificent bouquet of the same flows, sent by the "Woman's Club. On the other side of the table was a beautiful floral world, supported on delicate wires from a founda tion of choice blossoms, the pift of Elliott. The world was composed of white carnations, and the land outlined by red flowers of the same variety. OKIGI- OF HKR TRIP. In the most natural and unaffected man ner, thatcharmed anddelighted herjisteners, Kellie Bly began relating her experiences by telling how she first thought of making her journey round the world; how on Sundays she was wont 10 puzzle her inventive little brain for ideas with which to astound her editor Monday morning, and how on one particular Sunday the tired brain refused to suggest anything, and as a consequence the felt iuat a trifle blue. and wished she were on the other side of I me worm, xnere was me iaea! vny couldn't she be on the other side of the world? And with that as a starting point she began to think of Jules Verne's tale, and wonder if she couldn't beat his imaginary record. Going down to a steamer's ship office the next morning.and studying guides she found she co aid make the trio some days sooner than "Phineas Fogg" did. Then she went to her newspaper office. Seating herself beside the editor she waited for him to ques tion her, as .she had some fears about the re ception her suggestion would receive. When her superior said: ""Well, have yon any ideas lor this week's wort?" she replied, "Yes, one," and continued to tell him what that one idea was. The visit which she and the editor made to the busi ness manager who, by the way, is a very important lactor iu a newspaper office was highly amusing. HE TATORED A MJUT. The business manager was not impressed with the idea, and even if it was carried out, he tbonght a man should be appointed to make the trip. He objected to a woman doing it, on general princi ples, and on the trunk principle, also, but Nellie, with her usual determination, informed th-! all important personage that she was going nroun.i the world, and he, with ihe same unction, informed her she was not coinc for that paper. "Whereunon she told him that if she did not go for that paper she would go for some other one, and lie succumbed, but it was over a year after that heated cenversation before she actually started on her journey. One night, quite la'te, she received word that she was wanted at the office, and upon arriving there, was asked if she could start around the world the morning after the next. She replied in the affirmative, and after her night's rest, spent the day in pre par.ng for her trip. Her description of her departure from New York and her feelings thereon was almost pathetic in its naturalness. Their trials the first day out, with the inevitable seasickness, were deci dedly laughable the way the little woman related them, but her indomitable will, for which she is so justly famed and determina tion to conquer all 'obstacles, came to her rescue, even in that instance, and the horri ble malady that makes an ocean journev a thing of dread, retired before the battle arrav of Nellie. LIKE riTTSBUBO OKCE WAS. Although they informed the young lady when she reached London that it was day light, she said she almost doubted the fact, it was so dark something like Pittsburg. She spent three hours there, and says she saw about as much of London as English men do whocome to America and then re turn and write a book on Americans. The English railway carriage was the object upon which Nellie expended some of the wit with which her lecture teemed. Her visit to Jules Verne and his wife at their home, was very interesting, and the trip from the land ing to the Yerne mansion, which was made in carriages, and upon which Nellie and Mrs. Verne were companions, evoked much laughter, as Nellie could not speak French and Mrs. Verne was not conversant with the English language; consequentlv they smiled at each other and pressed hands in a lover-like style that resulted in a mutual admiration society, and real conventional French kissing, with the example set by Mrs. Verne, terminated the pleasant little visit A peep into the study of Mr. Verne dis closed a very meagerly'furnished apartment in the attic, which did not corroborate the little lady's idea that all writers of great books had luxurious apartments in which to wort, and that all she lacked to become a noted writer was the luxury. Her re cital of her experiences on an Eng lish ship was intensely funny, and her sprightly manner of relating her trials made even an insignificant incident, interesting and witty. "WASTED TO SIAERT HER. The different men who wanted to marry her were splendid subjects upon which to point the shaft of her wit, and Nellie made good use of them both iu her lecture and in person. Her journey through Italy and the disappointment she felt at the sunny skies being obscured by fogs preceded a little incident in which she squelched some Italians who offended her, by telling them through an interpreter, that she had seen their friends in America, but they always traveled with a monkey and a hand-organ. In the lands of China and Japan the vciuca uuu pu were interesting to Nellie and to the audience last night, and her Christmas luncheon was eaten in the Temple of the Dead. Her journey to San Francisco was described, and the bad weather through which it was made also. The engineer was quite loyal and had all around his engine room the words "For Nellie Bly, I'll Win or Die," aud at one time it looked as though his obsequies would be performed. From Sin Francisco to New York, and he royal welcome which greeted her there, formed the conclusion of her talk, and the principal souvenir that she brought back with her was a monkey, which she pur chased in preference to a widower that Jules Verne insinuated she might possibly find. Nellie was bright, entertaining and witty throughout the entire evening, and perfectly natural. HONORED BI A FEAST. The World Glrdler Banqueted by the News Piper Girls Gentlemen Were Exclnded 17 tne Fair Sex A 1.1st of the Toasts and Responses, Nellie Bly is responsible for a great many things, and the latest is a banquet of news paper women, the first of the kind on record. In her honor it was given last evening at the Hotel Schlosser, with closed doors, that the male members of the fra ternity might not gaze with envious eyes upon the beautv of the scene. In a charming little dining room the ladies were assembled, and found the table laid for them, one of the prettiest ever seen in Pitts burg. It was oblong in shape and upon a long plate glass mirror in the center rested a rustic arbor design, upon which orchids in every variety held their pretty heads up for admiration. The design was of course reflected in the mirror and the effect was indescribably beautiful. Alongside of each cover a grace ful corsage bouquet ol orchids was placed, and the entire whole, with its snowy napery, handsome cut glass, silver and flowers, was thrown in pretty relief by the rich carpet and furnishings of the room. The dinner cards were typical of Nellie Bly's famous trip, the lines of the globe traced in water color on circular cards, and the route made by Miss Bly clearly defined. Miss Eva Muller is the artist to whom the ladies are indebted for the dainty dinner cards which serve as souvenirs of the event The menu cards were unique and apropos of the profession of which the banqueters were members. The ladies were seated as follows: Mrs. Charles I. Wade (Bessie Bramble), at the head of the table; to her right hand, Nellie Bly, as guest of honor. Then on round the table were Miss Hyde, Chronicle Telegraph; Miss Marion C. Gal liher, the Press; Miss Muller, Pittsburg Bulletin Miss M. D. Coyle, Miss "Walruer, East End Society Weict; Miss Janey M. Coard. the AUeghenian; Miss A. M. Nevin, the Leader; Mrs. "W. H. Gutelius, the Times. An hour was spent in dining, and after the coffee was served the feast of reason began. Mrs. "Wade was toastmaster, and also responded to "Woman as a Critic." The other toasts and responses were: Miss M. C. Galliher, "The Girl Keporter;" Miss Eva Miller, "Our Guest of Honor, Nellie Bly;" Miss Pink Cochran (Nellie Bly), "Woman Without an Escort;" Miss M. D. Coyle, "Man as a Father, Husband, Brother, lover or Any Capacity;" Miss Janey M. Coard, "To the Pioneer Woman in Newspaper Work;" Mrs. Gutelius, "Newspaper Men as Husbands." At the conclusion of the banquet the ladies were conveyed in carriages to Old City Hall, where they escorted Nellie inside and sat in a body in the front of the hall. The ladies were all radiant in handsome car riage costumes, and presented quite an imposing appearance as they traversed the aisle in the hall. The banquet and its success is largely due to the efforts of Miss Marion C. Galliher, who has been un tiring in her efforts to make it just what it was. The floral decorations were furnished by A. M. & J. B. Murdoch, and have never been excelled in Pittsburg. SOT DAT1D HARRIS' BODY. A Corpse Found Near Industry Causes Con siderable Speculation. A dead man was taken from the Ohio river near Industry, yesterday morning. A report come to Allegheny that the corpse was that of David Harris, the stove man, who disappeared March 1. H. P. Gazzam, a brother-in-law of the missing man, went to Industry and discovered that the body was not thai of his relative. The drowned man was roughly clad and was evidently a mill worker. The fact that Mr. Gazzam went to the place so promptly disproves the story that Mr. Harris' relatives know where he is. Both Go: Into Trouble. Isaac Kinney was arrested in the barroom of the Central Hotel last night for drawing a revolver, because he was refused a drink. A companion, Henry Feldony, was arrested as a suspicions character, while trying to sell a watch. Fortnnate Inventor. & Higdon, patent lawyers.

McCLMOCK &d CO.'S SACRIFICE SALE FIRST-CLASS FURNITURE What is this man doing? He is cutting down his stock by the vigorous use of a sharp knife. The picture fitly symbolizes the sharp cutting down of prices by which our stock of Furniture and Curtains has been rapidly melting away during the past week. Our plan of an auction, without its dangers and pitfalls, and the auctioneers' whips, under which you buy in haste and afterward repent in leisure, has proved a great success. Prices 'are in plain figures on the tags. You can compare and choose quietly deliber ately. You can inspect the whole stock, pass it all with out purchasing, and no harm is done. As will be noticed in the sample lots quoted below, we have made additional reduc tions on lots offered last week which still remain unsold. The fact is, the immense stock in our six-story warehouse on Third avenue must-be largely reduced. If last week's prices were not low enough to make a quick sale, we will make lower prices to-day which will be sure to make them go. We have replaced the large quantity of goods sold by new lots equally as good in style and quality, and with an equally , heavy reduction in prices.
