PECULIAR TRIAL FOR MURDER. Lately there was tried for murder before the Court of Assize for the Department of the Aveyun, sitting at Rodez, a young person named Sylvie Trouban. She was the daughter of a retired officer of gendarmerie, and had been seduced under promise of marriage by a young man named Serieys, slightly above her in station, who held an appointment in the office of a mining company. She had borne this young man a child and he had refused to redeem his pledge to marry her, besides insultingly repudiating the paternity of ( the infant. This was more than Sylvie Trouban could bear. First she tried to soften her quondam lover's heart by continually crossing his path and presenting her baby to him but, finding him still obdurate, she went to a grocer's and tried to pur- chase some vitriol. The tradesman, noticing that she was in "a bizarre and excited condition," j very prudently declined to supply her with the dangerous fluid, whereupon she secreted a loaded revolver which she had taken from her father's bedroom, and proceeded to the office of the mining company where Serieys was employed. She sue- ceeded in penetrating to her faithless lover's bureau, stole behind the chair in which he was sitting, busy over his work, and, drawing her weapon, fired, and lodged a ball in the vertebral J column close to his neck. The unfortunate man r died a few minutes afterwards, and Sylvie Trou- ban quietly delivered herself up to justice. In due â– course of time she was tripfl and was duly ac- 1 quitted, amid the applause ofa crowded court, by the jury at Rodez. It will be perceived that T modern practice has wrought a change of gender in the celebrated piece of advice prescribed by M. Alexander Dumas the younger, in the case of j amative infidelity. Teu-la," said the famous French pamphleteer-dramatist to the husband of a faithless wife. "Teu-le" practically says a French jury to the victim of an unfaithful lover.
