In a miserable hovel on Fourth street
between Seventh and E ghth avenues in
a dingy room surrounded by poverty and
squullor, last night occurred the death of
Mrs. John Henry Fuller. She was 30
years of age and leaves a husband and
two little girls. It is a sid and tetucbiDg
case of destitution. Both the husband
atd wife are feeble mentally, and have
for yesrs been dependant upon the charity
of the residents of the lower part of tbe
city. While they have not suffered for
the want of food, thej are not cap
able of looking after themselves, and
their present condition is due in a great
measure to their uncleanly habits caused
by their mental deficiency. The funeral
occurred this af tern 'on. tbe expense of
which will be borne by the county.
