Oriental Judgment on Mixed Babies.
The Greek ecclesiastical author
ities at Aleppo have been called
upon todecide a case which strong
ly recalls Solomon’s famous judg
ment. By a strange coincidence
a woman and her daughter both
gaveLirth to a female child at the
same time. But the babies got
mixed, and, as one of them was
ugly and the other pretty and
healthy, both mothers claimed the
latter. The elder woman main
tained that, as all her other chil
dren were handsome, the ugly
child could not ho hers, whilst her
daughter claimed that, being
young, handsome and strong, she
could not be the mothor of a weak
and ugly babe. The religious
chief of the town settled the affair
in a summary way. He adjudged
the beautiful child to the daugh
ter on the ground that, it being
her first, the occasion was not tc
be made one of humiliation and
disappointment, whilst the elder
mother could afford to forego her
claim since she had already had
several handsome children.
