The pristiors had received some intimation beforehand that the ex ecutions were to take place this morning and they were pre pa ted for them. They went to the execu tion chamber bravely anil met their fates without a struggle. They of fered no resistance, but they rather assissted the keepers when they were bound to the chair. DESCRIPTION OF THK HEATH Al'PA KATl'S As the prisoner seated himself in the chair and leaned back the warden's assistants stepped forward and drew across his chest and under his arms heavy straps, which were securely fastened to the back of the chair. Then about his wrists and over his limbs they drew an. other strap, which they buckled closely, so that no straining under the influence of the electricity could throw the body into ugly con tortions or move it from the posi tion in which the the two electrodes pressed against it and formed .the circuit through which the current from thedynamos would be playing His legs were quickly strapped to the legs of the chair. In all these preparations the witnesses showed a great interest. Warden Durston, particularly, as the first who had superintended an electrocution, watched every movement of the warden's assistants with interest. Dr. McDonald superintended the adjustment of all the straps. Warden Brown told the correspond ent two days before that he would leave all the arrangements in the the hands of the scientists present. The last straps to be put in place were the new ones across the face, They were belts rather than straps. One was drawn across the beard of the prisoner and partly over his mouth, but not so far as to prevent speech. The other was fastened over his eyes and pressed down over his nose. When the straps were all in place the figure '"4" above his head was loosened and brought down so that the electrode fastened to the end of it at the base of a coil spring hung in front of his forehead. When the sponge in the electrode was ad justed, the figure "4" was clamped in place and the electrode was fastened in position by a strap passing about the head. Then the second electrode was put in place. It was verj- like the first a convex brass band with a sponge attached to the under side. The right leg of the prisoner's trousers had been split up the side so that the elec trode could be bound to the calf of the leg. It was fastened in place. The wire representing the negative pole was attached to it at the back by a small thum-screw of brass. This wire ran down through the floor and into the executioner's closet, to the wall of which it was fastened. The wire from the figure 4 hung from a covered rod extend ing over the top of the closet and hanging above the prisoner's head. The prisoner made no sound during these preparations, but went through them stolidly, giving the deputy wardens such assist ance as he could by placing his arms and legs in the desired posi tions as they were indicated. Dr. McDonald, who was in full charge of the scientific features of the electrocutions, stood directly be hind the chair as the preparations were completed. One of the at tendant doctors took a can of salt water in his hands. It was a long necked can with a handle on the side, such as is used by engineers for oiling. With it lie wet the sponges at the two electrodes. The preparations consumed only two or three minutes. When everything was in place Dr. Daniels and Dr. South wick looked over the straps. While the doctors were looking over the straps Warden Brown stood aside, a mere onlooker. Tie law required him t " present, but he regretted th- ly and only carried the law by tnding his l. j showed a 'urrent and - warden -ent to - at warrant of law, and it was opened to permit him to pass through. He was gone only a couple of minutes. In that time he had notified Head Keeper Connatighton, who was in the condemned cell room, that the chair was ready for the lirst of the condemned men. The warden and the head keeper walked ahead, then the condetned men between two priests and then two guards. Th execution of the four men occured early in -the morning and their death was absolutely' painless. "Frosted Cream." the latest and greatest drink of the age, at Geritig A: Co.'s. Kit A Pleasant Surprise. Last evening marked one of the many pleasant events in the life of Mrs. J. I). M. Buckner. Mrs Buckner has been absent from the city for about four weeks enjoying a visit with her parents, taking the child ren with tier. In her absence Rev. Buckner concluded to move to an other part of the city and so rented the Davis property on high school hill. With the assistance of friends, he succeeded in getting moved and nicely housed in his new home be fore Mrs. Btickner's return. Last evening was the times fixed for her return and in anticipation of that event the house was well filled with friends ready to welcome her home. Taking a carriage at the depot she was driven to her new home, against her loudest protests, but the driver who ' was posted heard nothing. After some per suasion she was induced to leave the carriage supposing a little sur prise had been arranged for at the home of a friend; and not until she had been in the house some time did she recognize her own furniture, but was finally convinced that it was her home and the friends present were her guest. A good supper had been provided sind the friends united with the family in spending a very enjoyable evening. Rer. Buckner is to be congratula ted on his success, as the task was difficult one but he succeeded admirably. A beautiful cottage in South Park for sale on monthly payments. Apply to R. B.
