JIORIX. ' 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 post has to to bring her before the pre . 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.

Witness also said she had realry seen the was engrossed in the perusal of a book. 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 amount.1, : ? Vxe.M : ft 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, hot forgetting meanwhile to collect the money one ner lor ner various services in the malterT v SHe took good '.care; to natter ineir nopes wiin promises oi sue cess. of the plot. Ragouleau,' incredulous, hastened to Paris, s He no a sooner reached his house thanHh concierge placed iu his hand the fatal invitation to 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- - '- t- 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 and-place'd in the chair by the three Women, his hands were imprisoned in the KlnderlAtohin For It. " Do you answer to the name of Merri field Scott ?" inquired the Detroit court. "Yaas."- ; . He was a young man of four and twenty, and the "duds" on his back weren't enough in bulk to make a gbod sixed mop. His hair was down to his eves, there was coal dust and dirt all over him, and he moved around with slow and solemn step. ' Well, sir," resumed the court, "you are charged with vagrancy. The warrant says you have no home, no occupation, and that you couldn't buy a lemon if they sold 'em at a 'cent a million. Straighten up, look me in the eye, and j give me your candid opinion about it." " Ther' hain't no work," drawled the prisoner. " Have you sought for work ?" "Yaas." : "Where?" ' Wall,-I've been' kinder lookin all around town." " And your efforts have not been crowned with the successf ulness of suc cess?" "Naw." " Mr. Scott," continued his honor, as he fastened his teeth into an apple ; and drew a whole side away at once, ' sup pose that Daniel Boone had kinder look ed around in his young days were would Kentucky be now?" . . u " I dunno," sighed the prisoner, j ?

' - 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.

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.
