According to General Pillet of an
France, the author of "L'angleterre Is
tue a Londres et dans see Provinces." 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. If [
am not elected I will publish in the
Bingtown Herald what I know about
people in this community."
When the votes were counted the old t
doctor received all but three. and those
f three were cast by people who had
4 moved into the town that spring.-St t
