which Is of unnmrriiigeahle age but

Stales Is not an high as it is In Hun-
gary, tint is still higher than in any
of lire other countries Included in Hit
The total number of divorces report-
ed for the twenty years, 1887 to 1906,
Inclusive, was 945.625. For the ear-
lier Investigation, covering the twenty
years, 1807 to 1886, inclusive, the num-
ber reported was 328,716. or hardly
more than one-third of the number
recorded In the second twenty years.
At the beginning of the forty-year pe-
riod. covered by the two Inveatiga-
llons, divorces occurred at the rate of
10.000 a y.-ar; at the end of that pe-
riod the annual number was about
66.000. This increase, however, must
he eonsldered in connection with in-
in-use in population.
An Increase of 30 per cent in popu-
lation between the years 1870 and 1880
was accompanied by an Increase of 79
per eent in the number of divorces
granted. In the next decade. 1880 to
1890, the population increased 25 per
cent and divorces 70 per cent, and in
the following decade. 1890 to 1900. an
Increase or 21 |>er cent In population
was accompanied bv an Increase of CC
per cent in the number of divorce*.
In the six years from 1900 to 1906.
population, as estimated, increased
10 5 per cent and divorces 29.3 per
11 thus appear* that at the end of
the forty year period divorces were in-
creasing about three times as fast as
population, while 111 the fir*' decade
(IS70 to 1880I they increased only
about two and two-thirds as fast.
The divorce rate per 100.000 popula-
1I"0 tiK-resaed from 29 In 1870 to 82
' . noun marri Ttn-lln IStoS. In the former year there was
■ - usm-i) on the total pop ' I divorce for every 3441 persons and
• i in tin- United 8tat< I In the latter year 1 for every 1218.
Since It is only married people who
can hero tin. divorced, a more slgnilt-
citni divorce iat«- I* that which is bas-
ed, not upon total population, but upon
the total marriage population. The
late pel 160,000 married population
was 81 in the year 1870 and 200 it)
the year 1900. This comparison Indi-
cates that divorce Is at present two
and one-half times as common, com-
pared with married population, as it
wus forty years ago. A divorce rate
of 20O per 100,000 population is equiv-
alent to 2 per 1,000 married population
Assuming that l.uOO married people
represent 500 married couples, it fol-
lows that ill each year 4 married con-
pies out of every 1,000 secure a di-
1 Divorce, 12 Marriages.
This does not mean that only 4 mar-
riages out of 1.000 are terminated by
divorce. The rate, il will be noted,
is an annual rate, continuously opera-
tive, and comes far short of measuring
tlte probability of ultimate divorce.
The available data indicate, however,
that not less than 1 marriage in 12 is
ultimately terminated by divorce.
Two-thirds of the total number of
divorces granted in the twenty-year
lierlod covered by this investigation
were granted to the wife.
Neglect to Provide.
Without any reference to the ques-
tion of which party is the more fre-
quently responsible for the marital un-
happiness that loads to divorce, it may
be said that the wife has a legal
ground for divorce more frequently
than the husband: that is to say, there
are certain welt recognized and com-
paratively common grounds that are
more readily applicable as against the
husband than as against the wife. No-
tably there is “neglect to provide" or
non-support, which, for the husband
seeking divorce, is hardly available
ground. Cruelty, although not infre-
quently thegrround for divorces grant-
ed to husbands, is mor,- generally ex-
istent as a cause for the wife's seeking
a divorce- Five divorces for cruelty
are granted to the wife Tor every one
granted to the husband.
The most common single ground for
divorce is desertion. This accounts
lor 38.9 per cent, of all divorces (pe-
riod 1S87 to 1906), 49.4 per cent, or
almost one-half of those granted to the
husband, and.38.5 per eent, or one-
third. of those granted to the wife
The next most important ground of
divorce is. iter husbands, adultery,
and for wives, cruelty. Of the divor-
ces granted to husbands (1887 to 1906)
28.8 per cent were for adultery; and
Of those granted to wives 27.5 per cent
were for cruelty. Only 10 per cent of
the divorces granted to wives were
for adultery of the husband, and 10.5
per cent of divorces granted to hus-
bands were for cruelty on tntypart of
Drunkenness was the ground for di-
vorce in 5.3 pet- cent of the cases in
which the wife brought suit, and In
1.1 per cent of the cases in which the
suit was brought by the husband.
The above percentages represent
those cases in which the specified
cause was the sole ground on which
the divorce was granted. Very fre-
quently, however, divorces are grant-
ed. not upon one ground only, but upon
two or more in combination.
Wife Sues Frequently.
Children were reported in 39 8 per
cent of the total number of divorce
cases. The proportion is much larger
for divorces granted to the wife than
for divorces granted to the husband;
children being present in 46.8 per cent
of the former class of divorces and 26
per cent of the latter A reason sug-
gested for this is that the children
are usually assigned by the court to
the mother, and to her, therefore, di-
vorce does not imply separation from
her children, while to tlte husband it
j Involves a severance of the parental
as well ss the marital relation.

MONEY RETURNED TO MAIN.
Grand Central Hotel. Rates 50c to
$2 00. In Uie heart of everything.
Consul Lomeli Returns $10,000 to
Couple Who Have Been En-
thralled in Stormy Scenes.
A. V. Lomeli, Mexican consul here,
yesterday returned to Mr. and Mrs.
Fredericy M. Main the $10,000 placed
in his care several days ago.
Consul Lomeli was given care of
the money after some stormy scenes
between the couple, and it was at
first understood that the money was
to be returned to the former home of
Mrs. Main. The couple came here last
Saturday from Mexico and registered
at the Sheldon hotel. Monday Main
drew about $3,500 which it is said be-
longed to the woman, and left, a note
saying that he was leaving her. De-
tective Billy Smith and Rev. Samuel
B. Benbrook. state superintendent of
the Society for the Friendless, took a
Jtand in the game, with the result
"that Main was arresfed at Deming, N.
M., by Sheriff Don Johnson and the
next day Smith brought him back to
Dr. Benbrook ascertained that the
couple were not legally married and
he performed the ceremony at police
headquarters. Chief Campbell smil-
ingly gave the bride away and the
money was turned over to Consul
instead of being returned to the
woman's former home in Mexico, as
was said to be the intention, it was
yesterday returned to the couple.
