I"' published in 1815. wife murderers a hr hundred years ago generally went ki scot free in England. In this engag ing work the author says tkat "the murder of a married woman by her Ir husband is hardly recognized as a o) crime. If by some rare chance the ' guilty husband is brought to justice pl he is bound to be acquitted. This ac counts for the heavy death rate among ar women in England. Most English- "u men of fifty have been married at ,. least three times." Pillet had been a to prisoner of war in England and pub lished this work in revenge. It was '0 so full of libelous statements that its circulation was forbidden by the l French government, and the few p' copies available brought very high ti prices. Apparently the English did not con sider the work very dangerous. as a copy was secured for the British mu seum. A Well Deserved Snub. On one occasion an English gentle man called to see Lord Westmoreland ii on particular business. lie was at breakfast and. receiving him with his o. usual urbanity. asked the object of his visit. The gentleman said that he felt di somewhat aggrieved, as he had brought an official letter of introduction to him from the foreign office and. having learned that his lordship had given as great dinner the night before, was sur n prised and hurt at receiving no invita tion. Lord Westmoreland exclaimed, 4 with his usual heartiness: "God bless i me, sir, I am really quite distressed. a I think I received the letter of which you speak. I will send for it." Ac- . cordingly the letter was brought to him. and on reading it he said to the s] stranger: "Ah, I thought so: There, 'p sir, is the letter. but there is no men tion of dinner in it." On which the gentleman rose and backed out of the room in confusion. How He Won the Votes. t A physician in a small town wanted to be mayor. Politicians told him he I had no chance-the machine was , against him. A few days before the election be printed the following card Iti the paper: "To the People of Bingtown-I am getting old and have decided that be fore I die I would like to be mayor of ,, Bingtown. I have no particular plat- , form to run on except that I want the " office. I have lived here forty years, n have paid my taxes without a murmur, . collected what I could and forgiven t and forgotten many omissions.
