WHEN DOCTORS DISAGREE, &C. The case of the notorious Madame Lafarge, in France, for the murder of her husband by arsenic, administered in cake and a fowl, attracted great interest in this country. Its most remarkable feature was the astounding disagreement between tbe medical men. On September 9th, 1840, the chemists who had searched the remains for poison reported that none could be found but fire days later the famous Orfila and other experts declared that poison was to be found in every part of the body submitted to them." The jury found her guilty with extenuating circumstances," and the court ordered her to undergo exposure in the pillory, followed by hard labour for life.
