CRIMINAL PRECOCITY. An Astounding Tale. Two precocious criminals—each sixteen years of age-have been tried, one at Aix, the other at Paris. The former told a strange etory. He declared that in October last a friend of his, whose body was found in the woods near Aix, and with whose murder he was charged, told him that lielliad had enough of life, and begged him to assist him in committing suicide. They both smoked and dramk until half intoxi- cated, and then set out for the woods. The youth who is said to have contemplated suioide was blindfolded and lay down on the grass. His friend then stabbed him four times with a knife which they had, as he asserts, pur- chased together, lie then went home, calmly stopping a fair on the way. The jury acquitted him, considering him not to be responsible for his actions but the Court decided that he should be brought up in a house of correction until he was of age. The other 16-year-old criminal began life by breaking open a safe and appropriating the contents. To conceal the theft he then proceeded to pour petroleum over the safe and the other! furniture in the room and set fire to the lot. When he had spent his ill-gotten gains he de- livered himself up to the police. Sentence of five years' hard labour was passed on the pre- cocious burglar and incendiary.
