REVOLTING FAMILY TRAGEDY IN FRANCE.

A horrible and revolting family tragedy is reported from a small village in
the department of the Herault.  JEAN CABANES, a married man with children,
and his niece JOSEPHINE resolved to get rid of the wife, in order to be able
to marry.  But this task proved difficult.
    CABANES first tried to burn his wife to death by secretly setting fire
to her bed as she lay asleep, but the poor woman woke up in time and saved
herself.
    JOSEPHINE then wrote to her uncle, "Try the well this time;  you can
easily keep her under water."  CABANES forthwith inveigled his wife into the
garden, and threw her over into the well, but he again failed in his deadly
object, as the well was nearly dry, and she escaped with a few bruises.
JOSEPHINE now complained that her uncle was a "clumsy fellow," and
threatened to leave him if he did not "do the job" very soon.

    CABANES bought some gunpowder, and, having made several bombs, put them
under his wife's bed, and fired them off by means of a train.  He was once
more baffled !   the furniture was blown into pieces but the woman was
untouched.
    The neice them determined to murder her aunt herself;  she entered the
house in the night and strangled her in her bed.
The guilty couple were arrested, and have now been sentenced to hard labour
for life.

RHEUMATISM.  ELLIMAN's Universal Embrocation is the standard remedy.  Of all
Chemists, 1s 1-1/2d. a 4 oz., and 2s 9d. a 10 oz. bottle.

MR. GERARD NOEL has (says the "Standard") resigned the office of
Conservative Whip.  It will be remembered that MR. NOEL at the commencement
of last session, offered his resignation, but that the leaders of the party
prevailed upon him to withdraw it, and that COLONEL TAYLOR kindly came
forward to undertake his duties.
    MR. NOEL, although his health has much improved, does not feel equal to
the very hard work of the position, and he has therefore felt it necessary
to definitively retire.

PARLIAMENT IN 1874. - If well-accredited rumour may be accepted for truth,
the Parliamentary session of the present year bids fair to claim respect as
an era in which social legislation will occupy a foremost place.  The
reconstruction of the Cabinet, which MR. GLADSTONE effected in the early
days of the recess, was understood to be a preparation for energetic work in
the ensuing session.
    Setting aside for the "nonce" such measures as the equalisation of
rating, the incidence of taxation, the amendment of the Masters' and
Servants' Act, and any improvement in the condition of the agricultural
labourers that may be contemplated, we specially notice that Sir THOMAS
CHAMBERS intends again pressing his Bill for legalising Marriage with a
Deceased Wife's Sister upon the attention of her Majesty's faithful Commons.
    Public opinion is so strongly in favour of this measure, and has been so
repeatedly and forcibly expressed in monster petitions, that those in favour
of the measure are entitled to affirm that, in the representative branch of
the Legislature, a very decided majority may, as heretofore, be expected.
    The difficulty to be overcome in respect of this bill is to be found in
the House of Lords, where various influences have continued to give to a
religious and social issue all the marked characteristics of a party
struggle.
    It could be wished that, for once at least, common sense might be
allowed to assert its supremacy, for then it would be seen that the really
wise, fitting, and constitutional course is to accept the repeated verdict
of the Commons as the voice of the nation, and to sacrifice any mistaken
"amour propre" upon the altar of an exalted, because self-denying
partiotism.

MALE INFANT FOUND.  An inquest has been held in the hamlet of Greenham, near
Newbury, on the body of a male infant found in a pond, wrapped in a portion

HOW FEVER IS SPREAD.

A case showing the most reckless defiance of sanitary precaution was heard
by the Liverpool county magistrates.

It appeared that a woman had died of a very virulent type of typhoid fever,
and after her death, the bedding,  clothing,  and other articles, were
distributed among the various clothes shops in the town.

According to medical evidence, the clothes were "reeking with infection".
The magistrates charactarized the case as a very bad one, and fined the
people of the house in which the woman had died, the full penalty of £5 and
costs, or two months' imprisonment.
