Into the house for a few minutes to warm
his f<*et, which had become cold, as fre

greatly surprised on coming out to find
no horse attached to the bitching post sb be

assistance, one starting to Wilmington In

DEATH FROM HYDROPHOBIA.
TUB UNf SKTVNATS ft BOBOS sEBOWISK
• BOWS BAPIBLT WOBSB AND BIBS AT
THIS HOSPITAL LAST BVENIH0 AT SIX
The unfortunate man, George W. Sedg
wick who has been suffering from hydro*
phobia since last Saturday, died at the city
hospital last evening, about 6 o'clock. His
condition on Tuesday evening, up to the
hour of eur report (about 10 o'cleck) waa
not alarming, but about midnight he evinc
ed much agitation and nervousness and be
came wild and almost uncontrollable. La*
ter. he became so frantic that those attend
ing him, had difficulty to restrain him, and
at one time ha broke from their bold, at
tempted to jump through the window,
breaking It in bis effort, Toward mornlnu
he was manacled and as he waa hurt b?
efforts to free himself, a straight jacket waa
put on him. HU condition remained un
changed all day, except that he constantly
grew weaker. Occasionally thare would be
a faint flash of reason in his talk, though
generally hla mind was wandering, and be
appeared to fear that some one wanted to
shoot him. Once Dr, Wales asked him If be
felt pain, and he appeared to understand
and anawered intelligently that he did not.
The only nourishment he took during lithe
day waa a glass of milk, which he drank
just after dinner aid which he was enabled
to drink simply by extraordinary will pow
er. This extbltlon of will which was really
surprising,be appeared to peiseas during all
of bis save moments. In the evening, the
attending physicians, thinking that a steam
bath would be beneficial for the sufferer pre
pared It and were about to put him iu It
when he nxplied, Hedledevldeutally from
exhaustion and did not seem tosuffer. The
deceased will In all probability be burled
from his late residence on Seventh Avenue.
The date ef (he funeral has net
yet been decided*
CHEAT CLOTHING FOR THE HOLI

nishing Goods in the State can be found at
Samuel Cohen's New York Clothing House

ity of the goods is very fine, and tbe prices l

ning up In price to $20. Men's pants from

dershirts and drawers, from 25 cents to

wonder that they are doing tbe largest

THE SKATING CARNIVAL.
The Roller Skating Masquerade Carnival,
given at the Institute Hall, last evening, by
Mr. J. T. McDowell, manager ot the Wil
mington Roller Skating Park, was a grand
success. The attendance was large, the
skating of many of the contestants for tbe
prize offered, (a pair of nickel plated skates)
was excellent, and the costumes of many
were quits striking, and ranged from the
sublime to tbe ridiculous. The costumes of
nearly all the ladies were very pretty. The
judges selected were J. K. a utterly, Tbos.
I. Russell and Abraham Richardson. About
10 o'clock the judges anuouuced the prizes.
Miss Emma Picketts, being the best lady
skater, was awarded a pair of ladies' nickel
plated skates; Mr. Ira JtflVris, being the
best gentleman ska'er, had ■ tiutilar prize
bestowed upon him, aud Mr. A. H. Van
deveDter. b.-iug the worst skater, recieved
a Mu pair
Everything contributed to the success of
the occasion, and Mr. McDowell Is to be
complimented for the pleasant execution of
AN INCIDENT AT THE HALL.
Some time ago a Mrs. Brady was ar
raigned before the Mayor ou tho charge of
keeping a tippling house, and was fined
$20 aud costs. Being unable to pay the
penalty imposed on her she was piaeed In
the cells, where she remained up to a few
days ago, when, It Is rumored, one of the
policemen let her at liberty. Sergeant
Whelan started on tbe searsh for her and
the ether morning found her In the house of
a Mrs. Watson on Bird street. He re-ar
rested her and took her back to the Hall.
She was confined In the cells again, and
still remains In durance vile.

to the city.
