[THREE MURDERS AND SUICIDES. A horrible crime has taken place at Bois Colombes, a suburb of Paris, a young married woman named Mme. Bourgoing being shot dead by a man whose wife had acted as the murdered lady's charwoman. It appears that the char- woman had been dismissed by Mme. Bourgoing, and in a spirit of revenge had incited her husband to commit the crime. The woman has been arrested but the man has disappeared, it being surmised that he has committed suicide by throwing himself into the Seine. A second murder is also reported, the victim in this case being a young girl who refused to accept the hand of an old cabman well on in years. The cabman, meeting the girl in the street, calmly shot her, and then blew out his own brains. From La Pape, near Lyons, comes the story of a farm labourer, who having been discharged from his post, murdered his master's daughter, and then killed himself.
