each indicating, in some way or
another, the state of mind of the
people. But in the latter part of
1773 it was deemed necessary to set
tle upon some design, and it was
decided to retain the united croeaes
of King James on a blue ground in
the corner, thereby recognizing the
Bovereicrntv of Kiiirlaml, but to still
further carry out the idea of a union
flag by replacing the red field with
one of thirteen red and white em
blematic of the union of the thirteen
colonies against tyranny and op
pression. The new striped flag was
called 'the "grand union flag." It
was not destined to ware long, for
it soon became necessary to aban
don the last symbol ot loyalty, and
on J tine 14, 1777, the blended crosses
of King James were erased from the
blue canton, and the American con
gress resolved "That the Hag of the
thirteen United States be thirteen
stripes alternate red and white; that
the union be thirteen stars, white in
a blue field, representing a new con
stellation." June 14 is now known
as "flag day," and is celebrated as
such by the Sons of the American
Revolution. From "flow to Make
an American Flag," in Demorest's

Keports from the census bureau
show that Iowa leads Kansas very
considerably in the yield per acre
of cereals. The figures for Iowa
areas follows: Barley, 25.84; buck
wheat, 11.39; corn, 41.28; oats, 39.09;
rye, 15.42; wheat, 14.09. For Kansas
the figures are: Barley, 23.01; buck
wheat, 9.72; corn, 35.40; oats, 30.49;
rye, 14.G5; wheat, 19.21. In the yield

A New Orleans irrand jury has
made a report, in which it says that
gambling cannot be suppressed
and recommends high license as a
means of controlling and limiting
the evil. The suggestion is made
to the legislature that a uniform
license of $200 per month be as
sessed upon each gambling house
in New Orleans, the license fees to
be turned over to the charity hospi
tal. As the gamblers are not likely
to do much for charity voluntarily,
and as they are pretty sure to go
right on pursuing their calling in
New Orleans, perhaps some good
would come of such a law. Two
hundred dollars a month from each
gambling house would give charity
a great boom. Omaha Bee.

ORIGIN OF OUR ELAC
As our existence as a nation had
its origin in the English colonies,
go our national ensign had for its
basis the flag of England, the moth-
country from whom the colonies
revolted. The yoke was shaken off;
the impress remains on our
character; the flag was repudiated,
but the colors were retained.
The English flag was the one in
use in the Anglo-Saxon settlements
in America from the time of the ar
rival of the Mayflower until January,
It was a red flag with a blue
canton, or coner, upon which was
the cross of St. George, the patron
saint of England, and afterwards
the united crosses of St. George and
Andrew, the patron saint of Scot
Durintr the stirring times just
precediug the Revolution, the style
of the American flag was as chaotic

Arc the Murrurnti of the Ifead and
Face After Dweapltatien IsrvoloJitmry
or Are They Attended with Some Slight
Action of the Will Some Experiment.
The question of the duration of con
sciousness in the brain of criminals after
execution by hanging or by the guillo
tine is being discussed with greater in
terest than ever since Anastay, the mur
derer of Baronesa Dellard, paid his debt
to society. It is said that this remarka
ble criminal sent to his brother a letter
on the subject as follows: j
The separation of uiy body and that which
comaitutue my thinking being cannot so soon
be aooomplished. I believe there In a survival
ot about an hour. Come, then, I eon, be pres
ent at my execution and insist that my head
tie given to you. Call nio with your voice and
my eyes will reply to you.
This is but the repetition of a popular
belief that has prevailed for centuries.
There is a legend of a state execution in
England at an epoch when the ax and
block were in use, which sets forth that
after the instrument had fallen the per
son whose head was on tne diock ex
claimed, "You have missed mef to
which the executioner replied with a
slight kick that sent theThead rolling to
a distance. The story never gained much
credence, but is still worthy of discus
sion. Its truth or falsity would depend
on the possibility of the instrument
being so thin and sharp that the walls
of the veins would not be displaced, in
which case the circulation or tne dhxki
might continue for a few seconds, and
whether consciousness migbt continue
for a moment after the vertebra) of the
neck was severed. This hist difficulty
won 11 be the srreatest, since utter un
consciousness is supposed to be simul
taneous with the severing of the spinal
cord or the breaking or tne necK. in
anv event, scientists who have taken the
trouble to study the faces of the guillo
tined for a few seconds alter tne ratal
ttmVfi nr who have made experiments
with decapitated animals, do not favor
Several French physicians, and among
them Dr. Paul Loye, now deceased, but
once a professor at the Sorbonne, have
experimented with dogs, using for their
hanjjing or decapitation machinery like
that employed in public executions.
The dog was chosen for the ex
periments as having the most mo
bile face and being able to repro
duce the movements which in rare
cases have been observed in human
subjects. Persons whom this treatment
nf iinrnh animals misrht revolt are becked
to remember that the suffering is much
less than in vivisection, since these
methods of execution are generally rec
ognized as producing the least pain.
The guillotine employed by Dr. Loye
was similar to that used for the execu
tion of ordinary criminals in France. It
consisted of a triangular knife or ax,
surmounted by a mass of lead weighing
over twenty pounds and falling over
six feet upon the neck of the animal,
which was severed at the third verte
bra. The phenomena observed were
similar to those remarked by other
French and by foreign savants whose
experiments have been less elaborate.
At the moment the head was detached
from the body the mouth opened wide,
as if the animal was making an extraor
dinary effort at inhalation. The tongue
was applied to the lower part of the
mouth and underwent a brief period of
agitation. The eyelids were closed with
light contractions. Then the eyes were
opened and rolled from side to side and
top to bottom, the pupils in the mean
time gradually contracting. At the
same time the jaws were opened and
violently closed, and the face was rapid
ly convulsed. This was followed by
changes at the corners of the mouth, vi
bration of the nostrils, trembling of the
lips and erection Kf the ears. The en
semble of these movements constituted
a series of horrible grimaces like those
seen on the face of the guillotined, and
seemed to express the most intense ag
ony. If the cornea of the eye was
touched the eyelids closed, but if an ob
ject, no matter of what kind, was placed
before the eye there was no movement.
Neither did crying nor whistling into
the ears of the dog appear to cause the
slightest sensation. The pinching ot
the tongue caused a slight shrinking of
that organ. Although the pupil of the
eye was contracted, the approach of a
light rendered the orifice still smaller.
These phenomena occupy about ten
seconds, and are followed by a teriod of
repose continuing to the fifteenth or
twentieth second, during which, the
mouth rests closed and the eyes open
and without movement. At the end of
this time the mouth opens and closes
quickly, the nostrils dilate and contract.
During this time, although the irritation
of the cornea has caused a slight wink
ing, neither whistling in the ear nor
touching the tongue or nostrils with am
monia or cologne has been able to pro
duce any effect. The opening and clos
ing of the mouth resemble yawning,
and are reproduced a dozen times, after
which the motions gradually cease.
Then the cornea loses its sensibility to
the touch, though, half a minute having
elapsed, the yawning is still active. The
pupil of the eye dilates at the approach
of light, but does not contract, and the
cornea loses its g Listening appearance.
At the end of two minutes the yawning
