day of Mrs. Kadcliffe's popularity, her
brain was filled .'.with visions of the
mysterious and the terrible. .
Whe Mme.' Morin was cudgeling her
and the dictates of prudence. Although'
ill at the time, she hastened to Ragou-

enjoying the balmy days of early autumn
at his country seat. From this cozy nest

' A Story of Crime 'in France.
One day in the month of September
an individual named Ragouleau, attorney
by profession, money-lender and reja.1
( ebtato speculator by , practice, presented
himself at the prefecture,; of ? police n
t ho city of Paris, with : the . statement
that ho was the destined victim of a plot
laid against his life by-a widow lady
named Morin, ana her daughter,, iAfc
glique Delaporto. Everything was pre
pared, he said, for the consummation hi
tho crime; a house had been rented
somo where in the jurisdiction of Paris j
he was to be. attracted thither on- some
pretense; once there, ho was to be de
coyed into a cellar, and j forced to sign
notes for an enormous amount; after
which he would bo assassinated, and his
body secreted. j -
Had Ragouleau any proofs ? Oh !
yos, he replied, producing an invitation
from Mmo.. Morin to take breakfast with
herself and her daughter on September
21th.... This was not much, - but the
frightened attorney went on to state that
-a-woman named Jouard bad warned
him that tho widow Morin had for a long
time vowed to have his life, and that
fci ptempter 21th had been fixed upon to
lure him into a deadly ambush.
Hero Avaa something more, tangible.
Mile. Jouard was an old friend of the
. police, and au officer was dispatched

. feet. This woman lived a dual sort of
existence, carrying on the professional
tiudo of an cngYavcr in the Rue Dau
)liine, and at tho same time keeping! a
, Kin.vll tobacco shop in tho Rue de Jui
' verie. j ftho had, however, some other
means' of obtaining a livelihood, while
iu order to pursue her various callings
without interference, she jotted down
ami reported whatever she thought
might provo of interest to the inspector
of tho police. Produced before tho pre
fect, fcho confirmed Ragouleau's .story,
mul gave fmther details .as to tho ;mo
tivea which had induced tho two wjmn
to undertake so strange a crime.' 1 Mme.

It was quite to her taste. OoL Wolmer,
the hero,t having learned the death of an
rnlcle of fabulous wealth, sets out to take
poaaession -of his unexpected heritage.
On his way, passing through the somber
shadows of a .-Bohemian forest, .. two
menacuig phantoms appeared to bar his
passage. , The intrepid tVolmer 'drew
his sword and chased them through the
underbrush. Suddenly a , trap-door
opened under his feet, and i swallowed
him up. When he came to his senses
he found himself chained to a t take in a
vast dungeon, beside a table illumined
by the light of flaring torches. ' Upon
the" table were writing materials and
promissory i notes j tor an enormous

This thrilling episode was a revelation
to the romantic Angelique; she had
found the means to persuade ' Ragouleau
to 4su3m means which her mother ap
proved. It was only necessary to pro
cure a dungeon and a 3 pair of muscular
phantoms, Jouard, who was let into the
secret, undertook to provide the latter,

money one ner lor ner various services

reached his house thanHh concierge

breakfast. With a single bound he 'was
at the prefecture in the Rue Jerusalem,
and the rest of the story has been already
t0ld. , , . i .,
The police were satisfied .that the plot
in all its details was to be carried out.
Upon the trial the mother and daughter
were found guilty of the attempt to ex
tort money by force and violence, ibut
innocent of the attempted murder, and
received the severe sentence of twenty
years hard labor and exposure in i the
pillory ? the two- accomplices were sen
tenced to five years' hard labor. On the
day of their exposure in the ; open square
in front of the Palais de Justice, much
pity was expressed by the crowd for these
poor women, . guilty, , it, is. true, but
hardly realizing what they were abput,
egged on by an emissary of the police,
and brought to the ', threshold . of crime
by terrible provocations. ' There was no
mitigation of their sentence, howetvers
and they suffered the full penalty' of I the
law irf the prison of St. liazare.'" 7-

The widow havinsr errown tired of
waiting, she and her daughter resolved
to act, and secured the services of Nicho
las Lef ebvre, a stout rascal ' of 5 thirty
seven, and Lucie Jacotin. They next
discovered at Olignancourt - a small
house quite hidden in the foliage of a
large garden; Mme. Morin hired it, os
tensibly for a dairy, and the two women
aided by their new .assistants set to work
The subterranean architecture , of 'Olig
nancourt consisted of one large and two
email cellars opening into the garden by
two large air-holes, flush with the
ground. One of these was covered with
a grating, the other was open and form
ed a dangerous trap for any one not
familiar with its situation. The widow,
on taking possession of the premises,
said she would have these walled up, as
she considered them dangerous and
likely to become a nuisance. t This was
accordingly done, and thus all connec
tion between the cellar and the outer
world, save by a door inside the house,
was effectually cut off.
The stage being thus arranged the
assistants planted in the cellar .floor a
stout post, which Mine. Morin, with her
own hands,, secured ; with plaster and
rubble; a chair wa3 placed with it3 back
resting against this post, to which was
also riveted a' chain "provided . with pad
locks at each end. A table was o placed
in front of tho chair with writing ma
terials, and, in places of the flaring torches
of the novel, two- candles, eight to the
pound, in;. iron candelabra, shed a dim,
quiet light on the scene. 'Angelique and
her mother next, purchased two rusty
dueling pistols, and' Lef ebvre instructed
Angelique in the use of them a neces
sary Vxiomplishraerit, as she i was to play
the leading part in the coming drama.
She practiced at a . mark, and her co-v
adjutors uttered dismal shrieks in the
cellar, while her mother, stationed in
the garden, discovered with delight that
eho could not hear a sound. ' V
,u The actors being now perfect in their
parts, a full-dress rehearsal was next on
the programme. Lef ebvre was seized

' - It may be asmmed, Bays the Herald
of Jfealthy without , hesitation, that,
whenever a pronounced case of typhoid
breaks out in an isolated country house,
or when any form oi low fever occurs,
though it may fail to assume a distinct
typhoid character, there is iu that house,
or 'about it, or in connection with its
supply of drinking water, some accumu
lation of neglectod filth, some pile of
rotten' vegetables in the cellar, some
overflow from a barnyard, some spot of
earth saturated with, the slops of the
kitchen or some othor form of impurity,
to which the origin of the disease may
be distinctly traced.
This being the case it lies perfectly
within the province of every household
to remove any source of infection to
which his house may be liable. Yege-
tables in any considerable amount should
not be kept in , the house cellar, and at
least once a week the floor of the cellar
should be swept ' and every shred of
waste vegetables removed. : Even when
this is done, the cellar should be venti
lated by a window or other small open
ing toward the quarter least exposed to
cold winds (and in summer on every
side), -
A , The privy t if a. privy is used, should
be well away.' from the house, and es
pecially far from the well, unless its con
tents are received in a tight box and en
tirely absorbed by dry earth or ashes,"
and even then frequently removed; the
chamber slops of the house should never,
under any circumstances, be thrown into
the privy vault, nor into a porous cess
pool, from which they can leach into the
j ground and through the ground for a
long distance into the well, or into and
around the foundation of the house.
The same disposal of the liquid wastes
of the kitchen is desirable, but not so
absolutely important. It is, however,

The Irish, Morally and, Physically.
Interesting statistical reports have
recently, been published which bring
into comparison the different nationali
ties composing the "United Kincdom
of Great Britain and Ireland. In this
the Irish appear to a great advantage on
two important points in respect to
morality in the relations between the
two sexes, and in respect to physical
health and mortality. Scotland is the
best educated of the three countries.
England occupies the second place in
that respect, and Ireland tae last. But
according to the reports for 1872, Scot
land has the greatest proportion of ille-
gitunate Dirtns, Jinglana less, but least
of all Ireland. Only two-fifths per cent,
of all the children born in Ireland i were
illegitimate. . The reputation of the
Irish as a moral people ia therefore' well
founded. .
The Irish, in spite of the poverty of
the masses, seem to be the healthiest
portion of the people of the United
Kingdom. In England the proportion
of the deaths of males under five years
in 1872 was 41.49 per cent., while in the
same year in Ireland it was 36.82 per
cent.' Of those who died during that year
in Ireland three hundred and sixty -eight
"were returned - as persons over ninetv
five years of age. The number of deaths
of males in England during the same
period was more than five times as large
as the total number of deaths in Ireland,
but only one hundred and ninety-five
were returned as being ninety-five years
old and upwards. This is a pretty good
showing for the Irish people, and a strong
testimony in their favor.
