OLD-TIME SWINDLE HS.
How TUey Were Punished Five or
Six Hundred Years Ago.
Cheating In trade is no new thing. It
was practiced In the fourteenth century as
well as In lhe nineteenth. A writer in an
English Journal says: Our town records
contain many cases of summary Jurisdic
tion In matters affecting the price, weight
and quality of food, clothing and other
I cull a few from lhe archives ot the city
of London In 1318 proceedings were taken
against a butcher for selling pjtrid meat.
Three reasons were alleged against thfs
couducl nt hU trial before the mayor and
aldermen. It was deceitful and dishonest,
dangerous to the publlc'health; it brought
scandal and disgrace upon the mayor, cor
poration and all the inhabitants of the city
that a Londoner should behave so. After
the Investigation he was found guilty and
condemned to Le taken, with his bad meat
carried in front ot him, to the pillory In
Coruhill, and while he stood therein the
carrion he tried to sell was buri.ed under
It Is well known that the pillory was an
instrument in which the culprit was fixed.
Incapable of movement, and exposed to the
rontempt of the people. The offense of the
culprit was always publicly proclaimed,
lhe punishment might be severe or other
wise. It they disliked the offense of the of
fender their contempt would take the pro
verbial and forcible faim of rotten eggs
md dead cats, and the trader would make a
closer acquaintance with hlsiwn wares,
both raw and cooked, than he rnlghtflnd
A publican, convicted of selling unsound
and unwholesome red wine, was sentenced
to drink a draught of the same stuff which
he sold to the common people, the remalnr
der being poured on bis bead, and com
pelled to forswear the calling of a vim
ner in the city ot London forever, unless
be could obtain the favor of the King. A
note on the record states that he was re
admitted five years later.
About the same time we find a woman
charged with selling ale in a short, meas
ure quart pot, the bottom of which she
had thickened with pitch and covered with
rosemary, to look like bush In the sight
of her customers. It was a common prac
tice to put some sort of evergreen leaves
lu the bottom of tankards hence the
proverb, "Good wine needs no bush." ner
sentence was to stand in the "thew," or
female pillory, with half of lhe put at
tached lo It- As far as possible the causa
of the offense was always exhibited along
with the person punished.
Severe punishment was meted out for
endeavoring lo raise the standard market
price of corn and other articles. In 1347
a merchant was Imprisoned for forty daya
for enhancing the price of his own prop
erty. He secretly employed a man to
bring certain of his own (the merchant's)
wheat to themarket, whereupon he bought
his own at 2 pence more per bushel than
tbe market price, of course taking care
to make tbe same well known, forget
ting, however, to state what he knear
about the seller.

A curious Incident occurred at Ascot, says
the London Telegraph. While a large num
ber of pleatant luncheon parties were enjoy
ing the delights of an open air repast In th
gardens behind the grand stand a great
swarm of bees settled down on the guests
arcurd a table In a comer. They buzzzed
and buzzed every where. Ladies bad beef
In their bonnets and gentlemen found tbelt
hats turned Into striking likenesses ot
settled on thecold salmon andotlicrmcrabers
ot it tumbled into the champagne cup. In
fact, the bees created thegreatcst consterna
tion among the ladles and gentlemen hi that
quarter of the grounds.
They were gradually drawn oft the
Iuuclieon parly by a gentleman, lo whom
occurred lhe happy Idea of treating them
to a little music on a metal tray under a
tree. After the tapping or tinkling on
the nrtlclo liad continued for two or three
moments the queen bee settled on the
branches above to listen to It, and was at
ouce followed by all lhe swarm. It was
an extraordinary sight to sec hundreds
nt the Insects hanging like great black
and gold clusters on tbe tree 'while the
tinkling continued. It ceased with th
luncheon, and the bees did no more harm.
In the earlier part ot tbe performance
lady was pretty severely attics.
