Witchcraft In France
( Originally Published Late 1800's )
Paris, August 24.—The Tournelle condemn'd a woman of Mortagne to be hang'd, for having burnt the crown of a man's head and the soles of his feet, of which he died (see p. 30). She acted thus, being persuaded by a cunning man that he had bewitched her husband. Great interest is making to get her sentence commuted, the fact proceeding from conjugal affection.
