Rope Dancing in France.

--Three Polish rope dancers, performing at the Hippodrome, were recently precipitated to the ground, by the breaking of a rotten rope. The father and son were killed on the spot; the other son had his legs broken. The widows of the two men brought an action against the Director for damages, and was allowed 26,000 francs. The Director then turned upon the rope maker and obtained the same amount from him, The French laws are very stringent in regard to all accidents of this kind.
