At about nineo'clock, whenChas. H. Cady, of Brown & Cady, returned to his residence, on Fourth avenue, he heard a child crying. Investigation showed that the cries came from the vault of an out-house. The marshal, a patrolman, the undertaker and coroner were summoned and the child rescued. It was supposed to be dead and was taken to the undertaker's rooms, where in preparing it for burial, symptoms of life were observed and a doctor summoned. After working over it for two hours breathing was restored and the child is still living, after several hours' exposure to the cold. The child was found to be the son of Rickie Ehnis, a domestic who had been working in Mr. Cady's family. She has been charged with abandoning a child under six years of age. She has had the young man whom she charges with the paternity of the child arrested. He strenuously denies the charge. Later. - The little child died this morning. A coroner's inquest will be held this afternoon.
