THE TW ICE HANGED. | TRANSLATED F Row THE FRENCH.) I hare only to state that at the moment when the tale I am about to tell commences, it is noon, in the French town of La Piroche. that the in >nth is May. and the year 141S. Two men, one older than the other, one the father and the other the eon, both peasants, are jogging along the road into the town, mounted on a eouple of ponies. whieh trot at a pace sufficiently agree able. considering they are only ponies bestrode by peasants. " Shall we get there in time?" asked the son. '? Yes; it won't take place before two o'clock," answered the father, '* and it U ouly a quarter past noon, by the sun " ?? It is what I am very cnrious to see." ?? I have no doubt you are." " And so he i? to be hung in the armor he stole ?*' ?- Was the armor handsome ?" " Magnificent, they May, embossed all over with gold." " \nd he was caught as he w?.< making away with it .*'* Yes ; you can comprehend that the armor ?y not to bo carried off without making a hor rible clanking and rattling The people in the chateau were awakened by the noise they heard.** ?? And they arrested the fellow ?" '? Not immediately; they were in a fright at first ** - Afraid of whom ?" "Of a gho?t This wretched thief, of an rpmmon strength, held the armor in front of hitu. m such a way that his head was at about the level of the waist of the said armor, so that it apf*>ared to be of gigautie proportions in tho corridor along which he parsed. Add to that a hir<h noise which tho cunning rascal made be hind him. and you can fancy what a terror the valets were in. Unfortunately for him, they went and aroused the Seigneur of La Piroche, who care* a straw for no man. either living or dead, who simply, and without any one's a< sis'aace. stopped the thief, and delivered him up. bound hand and foot, to his own proper justice."' " And his own proper justice V* ? "Condemned him to be hanged, clad in the armor '* '? Wherefore that clause in the sentence ?'* Because tho Seigneur of La Piroche is not only a brave captain, but a man of sense and spirit, who wauts to obtain from this just con demnation both an example from others and a benefit for himself. Well.don'tyou know that whatever has touched a hanged man becomes a talisman for its poseeosor ? The Seigneurof La Pir-?che. therefore, ordered the criminal to be clad in his armor, that he might take it back again after he was dead, and so have a talisman in onr Cuming wars " ??That's a very clever stroke." '? I >bould think so. indeed "' ?? Let us push on; then; for I particularly want to see this poor wretch hanged" The father and son continued their journey, chatting as they went, and half-an-hour after ward* they reached La Piroche. There was an iinmence concourse of people in the grand square in front of the cnateau. for there the scaH >ld was erected?a very handsome gallows, ia truth, made of superb oak wood. The two companions got as near a* possible to the scaf fold. ia order to lose nothing of the events that were about to take place; and like everybody else, they awaited the spectacle, with the ad vantage of being mounted on pony-back, and of seeing better, with less fatigue. Their sue jen*e was not of long duration. At a quarter to two the gate of the chateau was opened, and the condemned man appeared, preced by the guards of the Seigneur of La Pi roche. and followed by the executioner. The thief was in the armor he had stolen, and was riding ba< kwards on an as.- without a saddle. lii? vi*or w.u> down, and he hung his head, lie wailed clo?" to the scaffold, and a picture that must have lw?en anything but agreeable to his feelings began to be sketched in upon the azure back ground. The hangman had just set his ladder leaning against th* gallows, and the chaplain of Seig neur La PiroclM, mounted on a platform pur posely prepared, was reading the senteuee. The condemned man did not stir. You would have "aid that he had played the spectators the scurvy trick of dying before there was time to h?n< him They called out to him to get off his as- ai>d give himself up to the hangman. H* did not budge an inch. We can understand h.? hesitation. Then the hangman seized him by elbows lifted him off the ass's hack, and set hiin down upright on the ground. When we jiay that he set him down upright, we ?peakthe truth. But we*hould tell a false hood in saying that he remained in the same position in which he was deposited. In two minutes he ran through two-third* of the al phabet?that is to say. in vulgar parlauce. in stead 'if remaining straight as an 1, he became erooked as a Z. I>uring the change of attitude, the chaplain had fini.^ed reading the sentence. ?? Have you any request to make?" he in quired of the patient. Ye* '" replied the wretched man, in a sor rowful and scarcely audible voice. ?What is it?" ?' 1 request my pardon !"* I do not know whether the joke was invented on that occasion, but then or never was the tiuie to conceive and utter it. The Seigneur of La Piroche shrugged his shoulders, and ordered the hangman to do his office. That official per sonage prepared to mount the ladder, leaning ag*in?t the gibbet, whieh. impassible, with out stretched arm. wa.? about to tear a soul out of a living body, and he tried to make the crimi nal mount before him: but tho thing was not easy. It is scarcely credible what an amount <>f difficulties condemned men in general make. The executioner and his present client ap peared to be engaged in a eon test of poli tenons. The point at is?ue was. who should go first. The hangman, to make him uiouut the ladder, hail recourse to the same mean* which ho had etsblwyed to make him get off the ass; he took him by the waist, set hiin on the third stave of the ladder. ;ind then pushed him up behind. Bravo ! ' shouted the crowd. There wa? no help for it. except to mount. Ihen the executioner adroitly slipped round the patient's neck the running which orna mented the end of the rope, and giving him a violent kick in the ba^k, sent him swinging into open space An immense clamor followed this expected "'??ne and a shudder ran throughout the crowd. <>f whatever crime he may be guilty, a dying man i.< always, for an instant greater than thoae who come to see him die The hanged man swung twoor three minutes at the end of hi.? rope. a? he had a right to do. ki.-ked. writhed, and then remained motionless and stiff They stared a few minutes longer at the suf ferer, whose gilded armor glittered in the sun shine: the ?|?octat*r* gradually formed into gp>ups. an i theu went their several ways home ward". discoursing on the late event. The next morning, at break of day. a eonplc of guard" Walked out of the chateau of La Pi r?che. to take down the l*>dv of the criminal, and to strip it of the armer belonging to their lord but they found what they were vary far fr-?m ex|?*-ttng?namely, that the gallows and the rop?j still remained in their place*, but that [ the hanged roan was nowhere to be seen. The t ?o guar Is rubbed 'heir eyes in doubt whether they were dreaming or Dot; but sa>*h was the j No body, auu, as a utlural consequence, no armor. The most extraordinary circmn stance was. that the rope waa neither broken nor cut. but exactly in tbestate in whieh it was before receiving the criminal I fie guard went to announce the new* to the >e gneur of La Piro-he H w ?u!d not believe th-iu bat insisted on ascertaining the truth ?i?h bis own eyes So puisaant waa tbis same Seizuuar, that be felt a*?ur?d the body would J?e f >?nd in its place, in obedience to his wishes; hat he only saw what the other* had seen W hat had become of the dead man ? Fjf tho condemned thief wascertainly dead the dav b? the^r^iII,ei|rh<!!epoPuUUtion h"d h?held with their eje.i Had another thief taken advantage of the night to take poMewion of the armoj which covered the body Perhapn ?o; J"**- *hile taking the armor, he wS^'ft17 have ,eft the which which he h?d no occasion. Ilad the friends or relation* of the sufferer determined to give him Christian burial ? The case waa far from im possible. except that the sufferer had neither frieuds nor relations; and people acting under religions motives would have taken the body and left the armor. That supposition, there fore. was not to be entertained. What, then, were they to suppose ' The Seigneur of La Piroche was in despair' He was mad about his suit of armor, lie offered a reward of ten golden crowns to whoevor would deliver up the criminal, attired as he was at the time of his death. They searched the houses; nothing was found Nobody came to claim the reward. They sent tor a learned man from the city of Bennes. and put th.s question to him: -How can a man who is hanged to death contrive to escape from the neck '" suspends him in the air by the The wise man demanded a week's timo to think the matter over At the end of the week, he replied, " lie cannot manage it." Then they put a seoond question: 44 Can a thief, who did not succeed in a theft during his lifetime, and who has been condomned to death g?car' ho thieve after death *" The wise man replied. 44 Yes." They asked him how that oouldbe managed. He answered that he had not the slightest idea. He was the most learned man of the time. They sent him home again; and were obliged to be content to bclievu (for those were the days of sorcery) that the thief was a sorcerer Then masses were said to exorcise the evil spirit, who doubtless intended to avenge him self of the Seigneur who had sentenced him to death, and of the people who came to see him die. A month was spent in fruitless search. Tho gallows still remained in its placo. humiliated, downcast, and despised. Never had a gibbet committed so disgraceful a broach of confidcnce The Seigneur of Li Piroche continuod to de mand the restitution of his armor from men, angels, or the infernal powers. Nothing came ?f it. At last he was doubtless on the j>oint of making up his mind to this strange event, and the Iom resulting from it, when one morning on awaking, he beard a great noise in the square where the execution had taken place. He wa< going to enquire what whs the matter, when his chaplain entered his chamber. '? Monseigneur,"he said, ' doyou know what has happened " No; but I will inquire dircctly." I can tell you. 1" '? What h? it then ?" 4- A miracle 1" Really?" ?? Tho man who was hanged'" - Well ^ '? Is there." ??Where?" On the gallows." 44 Hanging V" '' Yes, monseigneur." " With his armor ?" '* With your armor." '? Exactly so; because it belong? to me And is he dead f" '? Perfectly dead. Only" ?'Only what 44 Had he spurs on when he was hanred 44 No." "Well, monseigneur, he has spurs on now and instead of wearing the helmet on his head he carefully laid it at the foot of the gallows, so as to l>" lound hanging uncovered." '? liCt us go and see. Altai ire Chaplain; let us go and see at ence." T1 Seigneur of La Piroch ran intothe square, which was crowded with inquisitive spectators. The neck of the hanged man was replaced in the running noose, the body was really at the end of the rope, and the armor was really on the body. It was prodigious. So they shout ed. ?? A miracle!" "He has repented," said one, "and has come hoc# to re-hang himself." " Ho has been there all the time," said an other. -only we could not see him " ;? But why ha? ho put on .spurs ?" inquired a th?rd. *? l>oubtless becauje he has come from a dis tance and wa.' anxiou* lo get back quick." '? For my part, whether far or near. I should have had no ocoasion whatever for spurs, be cause I would have taken good care to remain where I was " And then they laughed, and then they looked at the ugly grimace on the dead man s counten ance. As for the Seigneur of La Piroche, his only thought was to make sure that the thief was reai!y dead and to take possession of his suti of armor. They took down the body and strip ped it, and then, when stripped, they hung it up agnin. and the crows set to work with suuh effect that in a couple of days it was stripped to the bone, *nd in a week it was like a tatter demalion. in a fortnight it had the appearance of a nothing-at-all. Eventually the mystery was explained. It appeared that two peasant*, returning home by night, and passing close to the gibbet, heard moans, gaspings, and something like a prayer; that they devoutly crossed themselves, and asked What it eould be; that nobody replied, but that the moans continued, apj^aring to come from the body that was hanging overhead They then took the ladder, which the hangman had left at the foot of the gibbet, set it agninst the arm of th ? gallows, and the son. mounting as far as where the criminal hung, said to him, ? Is h you who are making tiie?e complaints! my poor fellow?" 1 Tbe condemned man, collecting all his strength, answered. 44 Yes." 41 \ou are still alive, then '" . " Yes. ?? l>o you repent of your crime?" 44 Yes ? Then I will set about untying you; and. as the <iu*po| commands us to succor those who suffer, and who even cause us to suffer, I will succor you and restore you to life, that it may lead you unto good . " The father and son then unfastened the dying man and comprehended how it happened that be still survived The rope, instead ef com pressing the ne?*k of the thief, pressed the ?n>t torn of the helmet in such wi?e that the patient mm suspended, but not strangled, and that, catehing his head at a sort of ledge or resting place within the helmet, he hud managed to breathe and keep Hfe existing up to the ino ment when our two companions passed by. The latter liberated him. and transported bini to their own home, where he was handed over t> the nursing of the mother and bci maiden daughter. But he who has stolen will steal again. In the pe tsaul s hou?e there were only two things to -teal, for the money he had brought from La Potene did net" belong to him. These two things were his horse and his duughter, a fair haired girl sixteen years of The ex-hung criminal determined to steal both; for he covet ed the horse, and was smitten with a passion for the daughter One night, therefore, he saddled the horse, put on spurs in order to travel more quickly, and seiied the jrirl as si* was fast a*!eep, to carry her off behind him. But the girl woke up and cried for help. The father and aon came to the reerae. The thief tried to escape but it was too late. The daugh ter told them of the violent attempt that had baen in vie; and her father and brother seeing ?learly that no re|>cntance was to be expeeteu from Mich a mm. resolved w? take instico into their own han Is, but more effectually than the Seigneur La Piroche b id 'lone. They fastened the scoundrel to the horse which he had saddled himself, conducted him lo the rqnare of La Pi r?*h*, and huaghlm exactly where ha was hung before; but th?y took care to remove the helmet and lsy it on the grvand,_to make sure that he should not escape this time; and then they quietly returned homo. As to the Seigneur of La Piroche, sinee he was in possession of a sure and certain talis* man. he joyfully set out for the wars, where he was the very first to get knocked on the head.
