It wa-, the ppriug, indeed, and not ihe summer, that the cucV:oo was coneideied lo represent in Ihe middle eges. The fair day of Tenbury. in Worcester* hire, is April 20, P.EQ it is a belief in the county that you never hear tfce cuckoo till Ttn- bury fair day or after Pershore fair day which is June ttG. InDeib^Bhir; a very prevalent ibyme runs as follow:. : The cuckoo in a merry bird,, Hhe sings as Ehelliee: She brings us good tidings, And tells usuo lies, She oucke little birds' eggs, ,To make her voice clear, That eh« mity sing cuckoo Three months of the year. There are, or hive been, not long ago in different parts of England, remnanti oi old customs marking the position which the cuckoo held in the middle ages, continues the London Q aeeu.. In Shropshire till very recently, when the first cuckoo was heard, the laborers were in the habit of leaving their work, making holiday ol the rest of the day and carousing in whal they call cuckoo ale. Among the peasantry in some parts of tbe kingdom it was considered to be very unlucky to have no money id jour Docket when you hear the cuckoo s note 'for the first time in the sea* son. It was 'also a common article of be> lief tbat when a maiden ran into the fields early in the morning to hear the nM note of the cuckoo and, when she heard it, took off her left slioe and looked into it, she would there find a niau-'s hair of the color as tbat of her future It is also a popular superstition . » T .

Another is that an 'unraarried person will remain single as many yeara as the cuckoo, when Hr 0 t heard, utters its yell. _ A curious legend regarding the cucboo is round among the Danes, which, with tome modifications, is likewise current in many parts of Goruiauy, in England, and the north of Europe, When in early springtime the voice of the c-ickoo is first neard in the woods every village eirl kisses her hand and asks the question, "cuckoo! cuckoo! when thall I be married?" and the old folks inquire, "cuckoo' cuckoo! when shall I be released from thij world K cares?" The bird, in answer continues to sing "cuckoo" as many times' as years will elapse before tho oH.'ot ot their desires will come to pats. But as some old peopje live to an advauced 'nee and many girls marry hte in life, the poor bird has so much to do in anewdrincr questions put to her tbat the building season goes by; she has no time to make her neat, but Jays her eggs -in that of the hedgrepairpw. The Swedes have a similar superstition, an many a peasant girl Cuckoo, grey, tell to me Up m tUe tree, true aud tree, UpW Wany ye« w J JUUBI live and. go m» Wttrr led OF TBE CU According to History It Was Invented by Dr. Louis. Sot by Dr* Gnillotin. On the 25tb of April Last it Had Been Used One Hundred Years. The Last Execution Was that of Lient. Anastay on A'liril' 9th Last. A very interesting centenary fell on April 25 lat',. Little was said about it and there was no public rejoicing. Yet the thing tbat might have been honored in some way was a creditable invention, although it has a discreditable history. It is the guillotine. On April 25, 1492, the highwayman Pelletier was executed on the Place de Greve, iii Paris, and the humanitarian invention of Dr. Louis was put in use for toe first time. It is a common and natural impression that this instrument was designed by Dr. Guillotin, whose name it bears. But it is now pretty well established that that is not so. Dr. Loui?, the permanent secretary of tbe Academy of Medicine, was tne inventor of it. There was a general desire for nmoie merciful way of inflicting the death penalty. Dr. Louis was filled with this desire as much as any one and designed the first model' of the guillotine after a rough Italian contrivance. It was m<i(!e by one Schmidt, manufacturer of musical instruments to Q leen Mirie Antoinette. Two years afte-ward the guillotine made from this model -*as used to cut off .the heads of his rojal patroness and her husband. Marie Antoinette was interested in the condition of prisoners and was alio in favor of refo:ming the methods of capital punLhtuenl. Nobles were usually decapitated with the s.xe and common persons in various otter ways. Dr. Guillolin wrofp a pamphlete urging the adoption of the invention of bis friend, Dr. Louis. H^ «as elected mem- txrofthe national assembly in come querce of the attention he drew to himtelf through his advocacy of this imtrument. It was at first called the Louison or Lsuis- ette, but the name of its warmest advo- caate was soon givtn to it. Dr. Gaillotin always protested against this use of his name. He did not d;e on the saillotine, as has leen fr. quently staM. He passed away iu 1814 at a gooii o d age. Atti?e time of tbp introduction 'and adoption ot the thb wheel was still usfd in some of'the M-.utlern prov- — - - j J'pare before D. miens had been broken on .he w}., el, with many horrible details of tenure, for his attempt on the life of L?ui? XV. The invention was, therefor, entirely due to humane motive* Ine fact, that noble perpons were decapitated end oibeis 1 acted by the neck was alsoiejugnant to growing democratic sentiment. D jring a debate on law intcduced by Dr (jail otin, the Abbe Maury opposed decapitation on the ground that it would make the people familiar with tbe sijjt of blood and would have a degrading i ffett on i hem Perhaps tbe Abbe was right. Dr. butiintin s l rt w contained some very curious clause*. Oue was to the iffect tlut the f x'cution of a criminal should cast no ui.-c.editon the criminal's family, and was that rhe fxicutioner should oo, be shi-nneJly society. This law wa« -of pasted at the time. Pdlietier, not the man who first dcmo^- slrated the value of the guillotine, but the ocluor of a royalist journel called Les Actc-s aes Apptrfcs.made Dr. Gu.llotin and his got child the luljectof a song. This is what probably fixed the unfortunate doc- .or s name on the instrument, On Jan. 24 Pelletier was condenmed to death by the provisional tribunal of Pari' for robbery and violence in the streets There was some uncertainty as to whether the new instrument should te used Tie question was rc-ferred to the minister of [ustice, M. Duport de Terre, who replied ihat he should have to refer the matter to tbe national assembly. } n his letter he . '/."PProwh this subject with hor- rcr.

The wr- J had got out of shape and the » U110 to fall promptly. Afterwards meUl was substituted and from that tirnn has never been any bungling *il guillotine. Its history is one of and great success. Within a few months of Pelletier's er I ccution the guillotine began its B0 rk ,1 a&sisting the political move nenU of it.l time. In August it was uken to bl Place du Carousal. In August the SOD31 thetxecuhoner, Sinson, fell cff the ijl fold and was killed. On one occasion was removed for one dny to tbe " Ue ace Greve for the execution of some emigres and then back to the Place de la Beroliil tion for that of two robbers. Tbe PlacJ de Grtve was in tie centre of what is noil the Place de la Concorde. It wu (hul thatL-.uis X.V1 and Mario Antoinette! Mme. Elizabeth and Mme.
