Thoro is tho moat puzzling mur
der cnao tlmt has ovor bean brought
before n French court of justice.
Four courts lmvo discussed it nnd
linvo attempted to decido it. Yot
it is uo'.v no nonror n just decision
tlmn it wns four yonr ngo.
In tho villngo of Bliuicnrde,
near Marseilles, thoro was a rich
old woman named Mmo. Monttet.
Sho was SO years old and lived
alone, except her companion,
Marie Michol, n pretty girl of 10,
yonng for her ago in speech and
nmnneis, but well dovoloped phy
sically. Every day a young man
of the village, a certain Louis
Cauvin, of good family and of ex
cellent reputation, eiuno to call on
tho old woman. It was well known
that Cauvin was to bo tho old
woman's solo heir. Sho gave him
money and presents ull tho time,
and tlioy seemed to bo vory fond
each of tho other. As tho old
womnn was vory strong, sho had
a good ohanco to live many years.
Early in tho morning of Decem
ber 10, 1891, old Mine. Monttet
tn found dead. Sho had boon
strauglod in her bod after a ter
riblo struggle in which sho had
drawn blood from her murderer
with her long nails. Suspicion
nt onco fixed upon Mario Miohol
ns an accomplice, because sho
could not givo a coherent account
She denied strenuously, but
after a few dnys mado a most
startling confession. Sho accused
young Cauvin of tho murder.
Sho said that tho evening of
December loth Cauvin oll'ored
her 3000 fraucs out of his inherit
ance from tho old woman and a
secure place in the employ of his
own family if sho would help him
to murder her old mistress. Sho
saiil that sho had accepted his
Hur account of tho murdor
was full of minuto and horrible
details. Sho said Cauvin's man
ner was such that she thought ho
would kill hor, and tho old wo
man as well, if she did not con
sent. So sln hid him in tho bed
room ot the old woman, and thoy
waited until her breathing indi
cated that sho was nslepp. Marie
said that sho hold tho candlo
whilo Cauvin leaped upon the
body of the old woman, striking
his "knees into her abdomen nnd
burying his lingers in hor throat.
AVhou ho was suro tho old woman
was dead ho went into tho next
room and washed away tho blood
hor nails had drawn. Ho came
back wiping his hands on a
This is only an outline of tho
story tho girl told. It was as
truthful and aB precise in its de
tails as a story could po&sibly bo.
When tho case camo up sho wont
upon the stand and repented it
just as she had told it to the pioso
cutor. Tho young man's lawyer,
one of the best criminal lawyers
in Eiauce, cross-examined tho girl
for several days. Ho did not
succeed in breaking hor testimony
in a singlo point. Cauvin proved
a good alibi, but tho jury found
him guilty. Thoro was tho girl's
story, nnd there was tho fact that
Cauvin was tho only pprson in
tho world who would prolit by tho
death of this healthy old woman.
Ho was sentenced to deuth. Mario
Michol was acquitted.
For some reason tho Judgo was
not quite satistied, atid sent tho
case up to a higher court. That
court sent it back for a retrial.
Tho snme testimony was heard
over again, and tho jury found
Cauvin guilty, and ho was again
sontonced to death. Jiut tho cube
was again sent up because tho
Judgo fen ted there was something
wiong. Thoro wns a long delay.
Marie Miohol wont into a convent,
not an a novico but as a penitent
