Insist upon this theory ?
Helene's next engagement was with the
new cure of Ilubry, M. Lorho, where she
succeeded her sister Anna. There three
persons died In as many months JIarie
Jeanne Llsconet, her aunt, and the priest's
sister and niece. They all exhibited the
samo symptoms which had attended upon
tho death of tho invalids of Ouern. Helcne
passed many nights watching beside their
bedsides, and M. Lorho's sister was eo con
vinced of her devotion that she would accept
a drink from no other hand.
From liubry Hclene moved to I.ocmlnc,
where slio bound herself out to a washwo
man, I.cboucher. Her mistress and a daugh

an aversion to .Uelene, refused to receivo
food or tnedicino from her hands, and re
covered. Ileleno left tho house speedily,
saying "I fear I may bo accused of all these
deaths. Wherever I go Death follows me i"
'.This was true. The widow Lorey took her
in, ato one of her soups and died. "Un
happy woman that I am," said Ilelone, fall

I go they die." liny 9, 1835, sho hired out

persons did not hesitate to die, her mistress

last the daughter of household.who perished
almost immediately after eating ono of
Helene's broths. Thence the woman went
to a convent at Auray, whenco she was ex

Sister Anno Lecorvec, who conducted a pub-
lie mission nt some little distance, received,

the day of the burial Helcno left nnd took

sick, but, having her suspicions, got
rid of her servant and recovered. The
servant then went to one Mme. Hetel,
but this woman's son, having heard of her
conduct at the convent, put her out of doors.
Too late, however. Mme. Hetel had eaten
of several dishes prepared by her servant,
and her death ensued in a few days. Hel
ene's fatal record did not prevent her from
finding employment in tho family of ono M
Jouaiino, whose son, aged fourteen, speedly
I died ; but, as the boy had been in the habit
of drinking vinegnr, tho doctor laid tho in
testinal pains and inflammations to the ac
count of that habit. Not long thereafter
ileleno found a homo at Hennebon with a
M. Kernllic, who was just recovering from
an intermittent fever. A cup of tea pre
pared by her hands and her sleepless minis
tering beside his bed ended him. In 1839
tho Bame servant was employed by a Mme,
Neron, and this mistress died as speedily
nnd with exhibition of the samo symptoms.
Such wai tho Indictment framed against
her; during the readingof which tho pris
oner was suddenly seized with a hysterical
attack, and lifting her hands to Heaven fu
riously called, in an almost inarticulate bab

her innocence and deliver her. At tho same
time tho witnesses who were present began
crying aloud for justice upon her, this bid

other a child, making furious attempts tho

restore quiet. Tho prisoner had strenuously
denied her crime, and declared that she had
never used arsenic, neither ever bought any,
neither had any one ever seen any arsenic In
her possession. Indeed, though science

victims had resulted from arsenical poison
lng, no traco of the deadly drug was to bo
found, was ever found in the prisoner's box

Her examination presented nothing that
was sensational. She denied everything, ad'
mltted that she had tended the dying beds
of those with whose deaths she was charged,

her late fellow servants, sho said: "If Qod

if ho were dying; see what my good nature
has brought me to. I know nothing about

I have suffered much, but God will give me
