Antwerp, April 18. --Madame Marie
Therez Joniaux, wife of M. Henry
Jouiaux, chief state engineer of roads
and bridges in the province of Ant

of having poisoned several of her rela
tives iu order to obtain the amount of
the iusurnnce on their livei. As Mad
ama Joniaux occupied a prominent
position in society in Antwerp and in
otoer social centers of the ;kingdom.
ber arrest has created a profound sen
sation. Madame Joniaux is 59 yesrs old, is
the daughter of the eminent Belgian
Ceueral Ablay. She was married at
about the age of 89 to Frederick Faber,
an emiuent author, and lived with him
until he died in 1881. In 18?d Madame
Faber was married to M Joniaux.
Although H. Joniaux's income was
confined to a salary of only 10,000
francs a year aud his wife was virtually
without private means, they live in
great style, maintaining a magnificient

they ei tertained lavishly, and where

victims was her own sister Leonie, who
was married and lived with the Jon

was intluenz i. A short time subsequent
to her boric it was learned thai her
life had been insured for 70.000 francs

The next victim was Mine. Jonianx's
brother, II. Alfred Ablay, who was
formerly a captain in the Belgian
army. "Shortly after his retirement he
emigrated to Buenos Avres, where he
led a dissolute life. In 1877 he returned
to Antwerp, and in February lust went
to live with his sister. A few weeks
after establishing himself with his sis

heart disease. Ilia life was insii'eu
