Receipts of Grass Cattle Are Rapidly
Becoming More Ample and Prices Drop
Not much change has taken place
in connection with the cattle market
during the past week. Tidy, medium
weight bullocks are scarce and badly
wanted In all markets. The lighter
the animal Is, provided he has qual
ity and finish, the better he will sell.
The country seems to be over stocked
with heavy cattle, and prevailing
prices for this kind are anything but
satisfactory to the feeder. As pre
dicted In The Times, early In the
month, receipts of grass cattle are
rapidly becoming more ample and
prices are working lower. The dress
ing percentages of the grass cattle
coming to the Detroit market, are said
to be extremely low. and buyers are
determined to buy them more cheaply

LONDON, July 21. —Divorce for the
poor la thu object of a resolution in
troduced In the Houae of lxirda by
Lord Gorell, who, as Justice Barnes,
Mas president of the divorce court for
years. %
The resolution proposes to give a
limited jurisdiction to tho county
courts In divorce and matrimonial
cases. At present, divorce in Eng
land can only be obtained in the <ll

sive Tegar process, so that at present
only the well-to-do can afforJ the lux
ury. The poor can obtain from the po
lice court judges separation orders,
tut It has recently been decided that
this separation order acts an a bar to
subsequent divorce proceedings.
While Lord Gorell'B resolution
touches (he point of equalizing the op
portunitie* for divorce among classes,
It does not touch the question of giv
ing women the same facilities aB men
for obtaining relief. At present a
woman can not obtain a divorce in
England unless in addition to infidel

cruelty, while the husband has only
to prove Infidelity on the part of hlu
wife to secure freedom.

tion has been sent had added an
