Poor Woman's Execution Then a Mat
ter of Little Moment.
The hanging of a woman, xhlch In
theso days calls forth public protests,
was apparently n mnttor of Indlffor
enco to our grandfathers and grand
mothers, says tho London Chronicle It
was In the nineteenth century that a
woman found guilty ot somo trifling
oCenso was sentenced to death. By
clianco t)io warrant for hor oxecutlon
was not sont to the high sheriff, and
sbo remained In prison for about threo
years, acting as a Jail washerwoman,
and occasionally, as a favor In ac
knowledgement of her good behavior,
going out, an was then tho custom, as
washerwoman to prlvato houses. But
a clerk looking through tho homo of
fice records found tho warrant that
had never been dispatched, and It was
thereupon promptly forwarded to tho
sheriff for due process, Tho woman
was found by tho turnkey at tho wush
tub In a houso In tho town Avlcs'iury.
"Well, missus," said he, "you aro to
bo hanged. Tho warrant has coma at
last and wo must carry tho sentence
out to-morrow morning at tho latest"
"Worry well, thon," the wretched
woman submissively ropllcd, "I pup
pose I must go," and having washed
tho soapsuds off her arms departed
with tho official. Sbo was duly hanged
next morning. From all which It would
scorn that barely a century separates
us from a condition ot primitive bar
