for tho past week or two things linvo

city hao been to u ccitalu extent
aroused. The icigii of toiror has also
moused tho public. Thu epidemic of
robbery and assault seems to have raged
more iolenlly than ever during tho last
twontv-four hours.
Between 7 o'clock Sunday morning and
2 o'clock Sunday night theio weio lodged
at the Annoiy police station twenty
tour comphviuts by citizens who hud
been .stopped on the sheets and lobbed
of hitch sums as they had about them.
At other stations a largo number of .sim

At about 9 o'clock last night tlnee
gentlemen were passing tho comer of
Clark and Madison stieets. Iimdv crtentlv,
0110 of them blushed against u shabby
liguro that lounged against tho building.
Instantly the figino sprang forward and
with a savage oath drew aditk. For 11
moment it looked as though a mmdor
would bo done. But tho three men
walked 0.1. This w as in the he.u t of the
city and goes to show the singular bold

Kansas City, Feb. 11. Tho refusal of

appeals and at tho same time the judge
took occasion to make a lew pertinent

crees 111 ex paite divorce Htiits.
One year before applying for a divorce
Claik -epaiated from his wife in Indian
apolis and camo to Kansas City. Ho
mado the usual affidavit that ho did not
know tho -whereabouts of his wife, and
mado publication of bis prayer for di
vorce in an Independence paper. Hq
accused his wife of offering such indig
nities as to render his condition intoloi
ablo. Ou tho trial of tho case a di voice was
denied, not because Clark did not swear
strong enough against his wife, but sim
ply because tho court told him bluntly
that it did not believe his statements
In reviewing tho case the com t of ap
peals remaiks that in all default divorce
cases the tnal comt is justified in hold
ing the petitioners to satisfactory proof
of their allegations, and oven though
their testimony is undisputed,, the comt
is uol obliged to behove it. Such cases
naturally arouse suspicion, anil 111 tho
