A SHOCKING DEATH. An extraordinary case of superstition is reported from the South of France. A woman of Thueyts, in the Ardeche, had taken in a child to wet nurse, when her milk suddenly failed her. She imagined that she had been bewitched by an old woman of eighty in the neighbourhood, and had her brought to the house by her husbend. The man suspended the unfortunate creature by the pot-hook in the chimney, and roasted her feet, and as this treatment did not produce a fresh flow of milk for the child, the peasant and his wife put the old woman's feet into an iron pot, filled with water which was made to boil. The victim died after fearful sufferings, and her murderers have been arrested.
