Last night another foundling died at Williams' asy lum, making three deaths from inanition since Christmas. At the coroner's in quest to-day Williams admitted that no physician had been called to attend the children or the simplest remedies applied, as he and the household, firmly believed in the efficacy of prayer, as curing all human ills and .where the patients dies, especially at his institution, no human power could have tared them. Prominent physicians held an autopsy to-day which revealed the fact that one or more children would have recovered, with proper medical at tention, or even the care of a competent nurse. The coroners jury declares in its verdict that the institution is in the hands of a lot of religious fanatics who in the above cases were criminally negligent and recommends that the place be closed by the authorities. The Blizzard. Sioux City, la- Dec. 31. The blirzard which prevailed in this section yesterday and last night, passed over to-day and was succeeded by cold weather, the ther mometer indicating 13 degrees below xero at 2 o'clock p. m.

Argument upon the motion for the appointment of a re ceiver of the property of Brooks & Dick son, theatrical managers, was not,heard to-day, owing to the fact that the parties have made asettlement of the suit brought by James Brooks for dissolution of co partnership Negotiations for a settle ment followed, and the result was that Randall assigned all his interest in the firm to the other partners. Brooks & Dickson then - made an assignment for the benefit of their creditors. This puts their property in the hands of an assignee, and as that was all that Brooks was de sirous of obtaining by his suit, the pro ceeding were discontinued and the motion for a receiver withdrawn. Trains Delayed. St. Paul, Minn., Dec 31. The storm in Minnesota and Dakota last night gave place this morning to clear, colder weather, with a slight wind. Six to eight inches of snow fell and several night trains were abandoned. The trains on the Northern Pacific and Manitoba roads arrived nearly on time, and those on the Minneapolis & St. Louis and , Milwaukee & St. Paul 'delayed but an hour or two.

The police au thorities believe that the recent robbery of $10,000 trom La Fever's jewelry store, on Notre Dame street, was planned and carried out by Jones, the noted chief of American burglars. Some years age Jones was sentenced to seven years in the penitentiary for robbery, but owing to his health and influence succeeded lately in getting the term commuted. La Fe ver was foreman of the grand jury that re turned true bills against Jones, and it is tnought the latter put up a job for satis faction.

A portion of the roof of a theatre at Choiet, France, col lapsed during a performance last night. There were about toco- persons in the house; the lights were extinguished, and screams and groans filled the air. About 150 persons were wounded, some, it is feared, fatally. The theatre was a tem porary structure and was strained by the recent storms. LONDON, Dec 31. The Times this morning has ten columns of a review of the events of 1884. Referring to America it says: "The all absorbing topic of the year was the election of a president The session of congress, ending in March, was rendered abortive, both parties desiring to avoid direct issue on the question of free trade,which was momentarily shelved. The democrats preferred.to play a waiting game, hoping to regain control of the ex ecutive, by the probability of the republi cans selecting an objectionable candi date. The hope was fulfilled by Blaine's appeal to the anti-English spirit of Irish voters, which failed to seduce them, from their alliance with the democrats. The project of the treaty with- Nicar augua, giving America control of the proposed canal, has found little' favor and will hardly be ratified by the present congress." . The Times rejoices at the revival of industrial activity in the south, as shown by the New Orleans exposition. Madrid, Dec 31. Further of the earth quake shock was experienced yesterday, at Wilez Malaga, a city of 13.000 people, - w milAc (mm f n 1 fTd ThA chnrL'i" I were of much viólense, many houses were utterly destroyed. 1 he people are terror stricken and have abandoned the city altogether, and are now encamped out side of the town. The telegraph station has been removed to the same place. A thousand houses at Alhama are in ruins. The work of searching the debris for dead bodies of victims of the disaster was vigorously prosecuted yesterday. During the day 192 bodies were recov ered. The shocks yesterday .were also felt, more or less severely, elsewhere, through the province of M?.laga and througbGran ada. They occurred between the hours of 7 and 10 o clock in the morning. There was a further loss of life and property at Periana, Rieeardo, Vinnita and Alfanatey. The estimated total number of persons killed since Christmas is 2000. The town of Albuquerso is completely destroyed. Many people perished, among whom were several local officials. Subscriptions for the relief of the suf ferers have been started at Madrid, Ma laga and Granada. 1 he king subscribed $6,000. ., ni ii i. é Man-Eating in Sumatra. Slarsden, in his account of Sumatra, says that, although he had heard reports of the cannibal habits of some of the tribes, he had always dircredited them until the truth of the statement was made entirely clear to him. He says that the Batías, one of the peoples of Sumatra, eat human flesh regularly, nnt tri snt.ififv thp frnvinot rf hnno-pr. but as a sort of ceremony to show tSeir detestation of certain crimes by this most ignominious punishment, and as a savage display of revense and insult to their nnfortunate enemies. People L killed or badly wounded by them in war are eaten, ana the captured sold as slaves, lhese same liattas show a certain amount of cnlinarr art in the preparation of this food for they broil the flesh oyer a brisk fire, and flavor it with salt, lemon, and red pepper. A friend, of the writer s, who for more than forty years has been in the employ of the Uutch (joyenimeut, bears personal witness to the prevalence of the custom in Sumatra up till recent times. He was once making scientific investigations in the Interior of that is land, and was being entertained in the most hospitable manner by the native rajah, or cruel, of the place ne was then in. A feast had been made to which he was bidden, and to which he went, taking his own native servant with him. i he banquet had proceeded for some time without interruption, when at last, as crown of the feast, a beautiful brown roast joint was brought from the back of the house to the open, airy place where the repast was being held. This was cut up without re mark and handed round, and the Dutch gentleman was on the point of eating Ei3 portion, having raised part of it to his lips, when his servant , rushed for ward and stopped him, saying, "Mas ter, master, do not eat; it is a . boy!" The chief, on being questioned, admit ted, with,no small pride at the extent of his hospitality, that, hearing that the white man wo-iild feast with him, he had ordered a young boy to be killed and cooked in his honor, as the great est delicacy obtainable, and that the joint before them was the best part, the thigh. From "Cannibalism as a Custom," by A. SI. Johnston, in Popu lar Science Monthly for December. A temperance, lecturer in London has given recently some curious statistics In regard to the amount expended in intoxicating liquor. He estimated the annual average thus spent in the last ten years at $720,000,000. This"gives an expenditure of $60,000,000 every month, of $15,000,000 every week, and of $25 every second, night and day. There are 3,508,480 letters in the Bible, and if $205 were placed on every letter it would represent the annual 'expen diture. The grain consumed by the brewers and distillers la sufficient to provide íour loaves of bread per week to every family in the United Kingdom. The, oartainly are startling facts. ABOUT DIVORCES. Why Women FiRnre Moot Frequently a. Plaintiff. "About two out of three of all the di vorce suits brought are instituted by women," said a prominent lawyer, "and the causes for it are numerous and curious. You wouldn't think, now, that women would have more of the aggressive spirit and pluck necessary to go through with divorces than men. but they have. Most people are apt to imagine that men are the ones to bring their troubles into court; that they are by nature likely to choose a bold surgi cal treatment, as it were, and get their marital troubles ended completely. ' It is easy to picture a timid woman cow ering at the , thought of lawyers and courts, and preferring anything to the publicity of the Common Pleas. But all that is sentiment- and exactly con trary to all experience. It is the men who shrink from the divorce courts." "How is that?" was asked. "First of all," explained the lawyer, "there is the question of expense, which to a man in moderate circumstances means a great deal. When a man brings a divorce-snit he does so with his eyes open to the fact that he will not only have to pay the fees and ex- Eenses of the lawyer retained by him, ut also the counsel employed by. his wife. Now, when a woman resolves upon a separation, if she has any good reason for it, she has the comforting conviction that it is going to cost her nothing. In four cases out of five, where the woman is the plaintiff, the counsel exacts, say, a preliminary fee of $25; and it is on the distinct under standing that, in the event of the ap plication being successful and the hus band being mulcted in costs, the mon ey is returned to her. So you see that in, the financial aspect of the question the woman is at an advantage. "Then," the lawyer jvent on, "the woman feels her wrongs much more than the man. Mr. Blank bears the situation sullenly, but very well. When he leaves the house in the morning he bangs the door spitefully after him, and in a few moments is wrapped up in the thousand and one interests of the day. Now, Mrs. Blank hears that spiteful door-bang and broods over it, and is mad all the morning because she can't reply to it. The house is her world, and everything about it suggests Mr. Blank, and, of course, unhappiness. Now, Blank is a devil-may-care sort of a fellow. He gets drunk at his club, and comes home or stays away just as he thinks fit. The world says nothing. When he feels mad he can go to his home, break up the furniture, and swear at his wife until he get3 tired, and then can rush out of the front door. Bnt when his wife is aggravated and fpela like annovinc Blank, where is heP That's the question! In all probability he ishavtng a rollicking time out some where. "Now what does all this lead toP" he continued, energetically. "Well, I'll tell you. The woman soon begins to seek for sympathy among her feminine friends, and she gets it every time I don't want you to make any mistake about that This sympathy-seeking is responsible for half the marital litiga tion. It doesn't take long for the lady to magnify her troubles, and then hef friends make a martyr out of her and cause her to believe that she is the. most interestingly ill-used being on earth, while in all probability sho is- nothing of the kind. This ends, sooner or lat er, in a visit to tho divorce lawyer, and that settles the business. Aman doesn't go and relate his troubles to his friends as a woman does. If he did the pro portion of masculine and feminino plaintiffs would be more evon. It is the custom of the husband to let confi dences about domestic matters severe ly alone, and so he doesn't receive any advice which would bring him withiu the grasp of the legal profession. "Most of the divorce suits brought nowadays are for the absolute annull ing of the marriage. The courts havo greatly discountenanced divorces with 1 T 1 . 1. 1 1 J alimony. J 11 cuses nucie uio uuauauu has to pay the wife's counsel the fee allowed by the court is $35 and $50. That's nothing, though, compared with a case I know of, where a husband some years ago obtained a divorc from the Legislature. He was rich, and it cost him $150,000. "One mem ber there, he told me, got $10,000 tc rote for ths bill. Seven months aftej the passage of the act the divorced wife died, and the husband didn't give up kicking himself for a year. His free dom had cost him just $21,428.50 pet month. He had imagined that his wife was going to live for years. Nowa days the Legislature can't grant di vorces for causes that would justify the victim in applying to the courts." Wrecked. Bird's Nest, Vs., Dec 31.
