Ibeling old England. According to general Pillet of France the author of Quot i Dangleterre Rue a Londres it dans ses provinces published in 1815, wife murderers a Hundred years ago generally went Scot free in England. In this engaging work the author says that a the murder of a married woman by her husband is hardly recognized As a crime. If by some rare Chance the guilty husband is brought to Justice he is bound to be acquitted. This accounts for the heavy death rate among women in England. Most englishmen of fifty have been married at least three fillet had been a prisoner of War in England and published this work in revenge. It was so full of libellous statements that its circulation was forbidden by the French government and the few. Copies available brought very High prices. Apparently the English did not consider the work very dangerous As a copy was secured for the British museum. An old romantic custom that has fallen into Des etude. In recalling the serenade of the philharmonic society to mile. Nilsson t am reminded of a custom now fallen into Des etude but which at the time i speak of 1870 was a favorite method of bestowing a marked compliment upon any one whom you wished particularly to Honor. A the serenade was not Only offered to visitors of distinction but prevailed extensively As a delicate attention which you might pay to the lady of your Choice. It was thought the proper thing at that period for a Man to engage the Best brass band he could afford and to proceed with it after Midnight to the House of his preferred and then to staud beneath the windows while the musicians played their most sentimental and sonorous selections. It was not an uncommon sound even to hear a double quartet of male voices with a French Horn thrown in singing beneath the windows of some favored Damsel while Pater families or the Butler made ready some Light refreshment for the donors of this Graceful compliment. These romantic attentions have taken flight with the Advent of electric lights elevated railroads and other voices of the night but even new York had a few hours of stillness after Midnight and the night watchman Lent an indulgent ear to these revellers who would doubtless be locked up As disturber of the peace did they Hazard such an Enterprise under our modern Hoffman so musical if its a watch you want you cannot possibly Overlook the South Bend.
