Historical Record of l'hraoasraa Cos
nrctrd with the Ifanenan'a Hootm
Pchrmv of CalprlU to Kave Their Keck.
There aro many Instances on record
in which the punishment of hanpring by
the neck, lias failed, either through
nome peculiarity in the neck of the in
dividual, or a want of tact in the hang
man. More than six centuries ago if
old records aro truthful Juetta de
Ualsham, convicted of harboring
thieves, was sentenced to lie executed.
She hunjj for three days, revived, and
was pardoned, as a phenomenon who
had somehow or other overmastered
the gallows. There is the authority of
Obadiah Walkcr,M.aster of New College,
Oxford, for ' story that a Swiss was
hanged thirteen limes over, every at
tempt being frustrated by a peculiarity
Jn the wind-pipe which prevented
strangulation. Wo arc not told whether
the thirteenth experiment was success
ful, or whether justice was merciful
at last. Ann Green wai hanged at
Oxford for infanticide in 1650; nay, her
Jegs were pulled, and her. body struck
with soldiers' muskets, in accordance
with a barbahms custom sometimes
adopted of making assurance double
Hiirc Nevertheless she survived, after
hnngiagsomo considerable timo. Her
body was given up for dissection.
The surgeon observed faint signs of
animation, tended her instead of an
atomizing her, and in thirteen hours
t-ho was able to speak. She remembered
nothing distinctly of what had occurred,
but seemed to herself to havo been in
a deep sleep. Tho Crown pardoned
Other examples of a more or less
analogous kind arc tho following: A
woman name unrecorded was hanged
in 1808. Shu came to herself after a
suspension for tho prescribed period,
not by slow degrees, but suddenly.
John (.Jreen experienced au ordeal some
thing like that of Ann Green. After
ueing nangeu at lyuurn ins uouy was
taken to Sir Willia'm Wizard, the cele
brated surgeon; and while laid out on a
table in tho dissecting-room he dis
played signs of life, and eventually re
covered. A female servant of airs.
Cope, of Oxford, convicted of somo e
nal offense, was executed in 1650. After
hnnging an unusual long" time she was
cut down and fell heavily to thoground.
The chock revivoil her, but the unfort
unate wretch was effectually hanged
tho next day. Margaret Dickson, a
century and a half ago, was convicted
of concealment of birth, and was sub-
1'ectcd to the last penalty of the law.
ler body, after hanging on the gibbet
at Edinburg, was cut down and given
to her friends. They put it into a cof
fin, and drove oft with it in a cart six
miles to Musselburg. Some apprentices
rudclv stopped the cart and loosened
the lid of the cofiin. This let in the air,
and tho air and tho jolting together re
vived her. Sho was carried indoors
alive, but faint and barely conscious; a
minister camo to pray with her,, and she
effectually recovered. No mention of
collusion occurs in this narrative, al
though somo of the incidents would
seem to point that way.
Instances aro known in which a re
bound after the fall has enabled the feet
of the victim to touch the platform, and
with what ultimate result has to bo de
termined by ft conflict between mercy
and sternness on the part of tho authori
ties. A disgraceful tcene took place at
Edinburgh iu 1818. The ropo with
which a man was hanged being too
loose, his toes touched the platform; the
assembled mob got up a riot on some
pretext, tho half-hanged m.iu was
carried off, recaptured, and finally
hanged on the following day. A seeue
of a similar deplorable nature had been
witnessed at Jersey a few years pre
viously. A whimsical legend, made the subject
of one of Southcy's ballads, relates to a
man who was resuscitated after hanging,
and disappeared from the gibbet in ft
mysterious manner.. In ninety-one
stanzas Southev tells the storv of Ro
prccht, the robber, believed in Germany
to have had some foundation in fact.
Koprecht, who Lad long been ft terror
to the inhabitants of Cologne, was at
length caught, tried, sentenced and
executed. On the next morning, to the
surprise of tho early passers-by, the
gibbet was found to be empty. One
week later Koprecht was seen, hanging
there again, but wearing, boots ana
spurs instead -of shoe. What
this could all nean waa left
to Peter Saoye to tell. He and his son.
Piet were driving home late oa the night
after the execution. Passing Bear the
gibbet they heard a low moaa. Look

quite true, to the efiect that the fellow

The William Duell who was hanged in
1740, and who came to himself again
wbea just about to be dissected at bur
geon's Hall, may, like Ann Green, have
survived through some peculiarity in
the seek or some clumsiness on the part
of the executioner, without any collu
sion or cunning among his friends. In
1787 a man named Kelly was sentenced
to execution at Trim," in Ireland. On
the early morning of tho day intended
to be his last he contrived to cut
his blanket into strips about four
inches wide, join them together with
strong woolen threads, and form a
double sling. This he passed under his
arms, fastened tho ends at his neck, and
there provided an iron hook to receivo
the halter. Thus accoutercd, he pro
cceded to the place of execution. It is
supposed that he had found means to
bribe the hangman, to whom he made a
request to draw up cloe to the pulley,
and lower him gently when dead. But
the crafty maneuver did not succeed.
Kelley had not allowed for the stretch
ing of the strips of blanket bv his own
weight, the point of the hook fastened
into his windpipe, and iravo him so
much pain that he struggled violently.
He was, however, allowed to hang until
he was really dead, when the sling ap
paratus was discovered. A successful
attempt to cheat the gallows once
brought an Under Sheritiinto trouble.
William Barrett, executed in Tyrone in
1759. contrived to wear somo kind of
concealed collar, which prevented stran-
Sulation; he was cut down, apparently
ead, but afterward recovered. Mr.
Annsley, Under Sheriff, as a punish
ment for allowing Barrett thus to evade
tho law, was fined 100 aud imprison
ment for two years.
Iu former times tho mode in which
tho disnril operations of tho gallows
were conducted led occasionally to a
frustration of the law's intention. Tho
unhappy culprit, after the halter was
adjusted round his neck was pushed so
as to slip or slide from a ladder. As
phyxia was sometimes produced with
out any dislocation. Under the modern
arrangement a trap-door opens in a
platform on which the culprit stands,
occasioning a sudden and considerable
fall, from which rccoverv is much less
probable. This change led to the frus
tration of a plan that m'ght possibly
have been successful under the old sys
tem. William Brodie was cxec..od at
Edinburg in 1798. His friends had pre
arranged for his resuscitation, but tho
fall or drop was greater than had been
expected, and he was quite dead when
taken down, lhere is an old Scotch
saying: " Iirodic's drap was too much
for Brodie," which, wo believe, jefera
to tho case of this samo William Brodie,
for tho 'drap" or drop was too great
for tho vital organism to resist.
A reprieve has sometimes arrived too
late to save tho poor wretch in whoo
behalf it had been obtained. More fort
unate was a burglar who was hanged
in 1705, for the reprieve arrived when
life was only half extinct He was
quickly cut down, placed under medical
care, and rostorcd. A reprieve of an
other kind from the effects of a fool
hardy trick camo a little too late. In
1806 a youth, aged seventeen, and
named Matthew Watson, resolved to
make a small attempt at hanging him
self "to seo how it felt." He went into
a cellar and succeeded more completely
than he had intended, for ho was found
hanging with life quite extinct. A
strange mania this, but the examples to
illustrato it arc more numerous than
most of us would supposo.
A question arises which very few liv
ing persons are in a position to answer,
viz: What are tho sensations experienced
miring uangingr oome oi mo iew wno
have been able to give any account of
their consciousness at so critical a mo
ment say that, after one instant of pain,
the chief sensation is that of a mass of
brilliant colors filling tho eyeballs. Tho
Quarterly llevicw, volume 85, treating
on this matter, says: "An acquaintance
of Lord Bacon, who meant to hang him
self partially, lost his footing, and was
cut down at the last oxtrcmity, having
nearly paid for his curiositv with his
life. He declared that he felt no pain.
and his only sensations were of tire be
fore his eyes, which changed first to
black and then to sky blue." These col
ors are even a source' of pleasure.
A Captain Montagnac, who was exe
cuted in Franco during the religious
wars, but was rescued from tho gibbet
at the intercession of Marshall Torrene,
complained that, having lost all pain in
an instant, he had been taken from a
light of which the charm defied descrip
tion. Another criminal, who escaped
through the breaking of the halter, said
after a second or two of suffering alight
appeared, and across it a most beautifu
avenue of trees. All agree that the un
easiness is quite momentary, that a
pleasurable feeling immediately suc
ceeds, that colors of various hinrs start
up before the eyes, and that these hav
ing been gared at for a limited space the
rest is oblivion. The mind, averted
from the reality of the situation, is en
gaged in scenes the most remote from
that which fills the eye of the spectator.
Medical men have paid much atten
tion to the anatomy of the neck and
throat in regard to the circumstances
which bring about asphyxia, sufibcatjoa
or chokinir, and they say that some
Checks possess a power of resisting these
envois io a very Femarsaoie aegrae.

Detroit Post and Tribune,
Stery ef a Silver Mine.
An old Colorado miner says: "While
1 was yet at Leadville a man came there
from Denver named Dexter .Jim Dot
ter they called him and he was full of
life and hone and had some money.
Dexter looked about him for a while
and finally bought a claim on Carbonate
Hill, which had at that time not been
prospected very well. He paid. I think,
about $15,000 "for it, and set to work
putting in machinery and sinking the
shaft, which was already down some
hundred feet or more. Ho worked
away on the mine, people laughing at
him a good deal, but he never once lost
heart. The mine had not shown up a
single thing in the way of mineral, and
the shaft had been sunk by that time
several hundred feet. Dexter did not
know whit to do. He had now spent
nearly all the money he had and noth
ing was coming in! Ono day in tho
early part of the year 187!) a party camo
to him and asked" him what he "would
take for his mine. Dexter told him,
and a bargain was made between them.
The price paid was, I think, $30,000.
some $5,000 more than Dexter had
spent on it altogether. He was mighty
glad to get the $30,000, and thought
himself well out of a bad bargain.
He rushed out onto Carbonate Hill and
ordered the miners to drop their tools
and quit work. This was about three
o'clock in tho afternoon. He said:
'Boys, I havo sold this hole, and I don't
want you to work another minute in it
for me. I will pay vou o3 right now, and
you can quit. WelUthe miners had just
finished a drill and were going to
place a blast aad uncover some rock,
and they asked to be allowed to finish
it before they quit work. 'No' said
Dexter, corao out; I don't want vou to
work any more; there's nothing in the
old hole.' The men reluctantlr anil
emd reported. Dexter got his money
and was happy. WelL the mine had
been bought by a stock company, and in
a short time theybegau work on it
Now, young man, what I am going to
tell yon is the solemn truth," said the
miner. Those fellows went ap there
to that mine and laid a fuse to the blast
left by Dextcr's men and touched it off.
After the smoke cleared away they irent
in to see how much rock had been loos
ened, when what do you think? There
before their eyes they saw the richest
body of silver ore which has ever beeB
seen since the world began. At that
time hundreds of thousands of dollars
met the gaze of the delighted owners of

As a description of the appears aee
and habits of this -corm, at well as the
methods of dwtroyinjr it. will uadoaet
cdly be interesting to maay reader, we
make a few extracts from a letter writ
tea by a eorreipondent la Tcunetaee fur
the Cultivator and Cburtfry Ucmticmmn.
He bogias the letter by taring that the
Erospect for good corn" and wheat crops
r very fine, but that farmers are aot
The army-worm has come, aad we
will be ruined. -The array-worm origi
aates in old meadow land more particu
larly, and where there arc no meadows
iu a ccighborbood I hear of no worm..
They travel from the meadows to the
wheat, oats. rye. barley and corn. If
tho wheat, rye" and barley aro pat the
bloom, and making the grain when at
tacked by the worm, the grain ia oft
ener benefited by being stnpjied of the
blades than injured. Oats, il attacked,
are generally ruined so I the corn;
both being very tender plants, the
worms go tor them heavily. I will de
scribe the worm for the beuufit of those
who are unacquainted with htm: He is
bald-headed, well-formed, black body,
uith two rather yellow than white
stripes from head to laiL When full
grown it Is a fourth leis in size than a
common pencil, and when ready to de
posit his cotton is rather yellow," and is
very clumsy or slow, but In almost con
stant motion and very hungry, eating
rapidly until he disappear. here he
goes I do not know; he simply goes out
of dtght. I find no holes that he go
into, and I do not find him dead on the
ground. Where does he go to? 1
waived the d ten two hours this evening
aud the foregoing is the best descrip
tion 1 can give ou.
"He is. i might say, rather an innocent-looking
worm, and has not the
hideous look of-thu cut and measuring
worms. The workmen upon my farm
have been giving him battle for four or
live days. First between my wheat
field anil meadows, and corn field and
meadows, we ditched, throwing the
earth out on the meadow hide, and
making the side next to the wheat or
com hlauting under, so that when the
worms conn; iuto the ditch, which they
do by the thouauds and millions, they
attempt to crawl out on the corn and
wheat side, and fall back, and when
collected in the ditch we hitch a mule
or horse to a .Miiall log of wood and
draw it up and dowu the ditch and
mash the army to death. With a little
care they never pass the ditch. As I
before -tated, they never originate in
the wheat or corn field, uule?s the
wheat has been sown on an old meadow.
Bi't if they do get into the wheat, then
there is only one mode of fighting them,
and that is I) the old Virginia mode. Tho
worms crawl up the talk and strip the
blades off up to the head, if you will
stand idly by and permit them to do .so.
To prevent this is almost tod'eheap and
simple to relate. Thewprm is very
clumsy, and the least shock precipitates
him to the ground, ami while there ho
does little or no damage.
"Take a rope from fifty to 100 feet
in length aud weight in the middlc.'and
ut a man or boy at eaeli end ot it and
m oasis the rope over the field
once a day so long as the worm lives,
which is usually ten days, and you will
save the field from injury, llio lat fel
lows are never to make a second trip
up the .stalk; one trip with the rope is
sufficient with that crop. A repetition
of this operation once a day for ten
days will .save the crop; aud it is easier
anil cheaper than ditching. I have
succeeded in keeping them .so far out of
my wheat; so I havo no occasiou to use
the ront uractice. but others aro usimr

Mid-Bsy Revelations of the New Comet.
Tho observations made on Wells'
comet at the Dudley Observatory during
its meridian passage are exceedingly
valuable. The character of the nucleus
of great comets hits long been a matter
of controversy. Iist summer Prof.
Draper concluded, from observations on
the great comet of 1881. that the nucleus
was "either a ?ohd or a liquid. Long ago
Prof. Pierce, of Harvard, concluded
from his observations that the nucleus
of a comet is a solid body of metallic
density. The observations made at Al
bany tend to support the theory of Prof.
Wells' comet at noonday on the 11th
showed a well-defined disc like a planet
or asteroid. The best theory of the con
stitution of the tails of comets is that
they are of electric origin, being the re
sults of excitation as the nucleus ap
proaches the sun. The nucleus is un
doubtedly opaque, being in reality an
unfortunate world compelled by an ac
cident of birth to wander in the celes
tial spaces in a manner that forbids tho
development of animal life on its sur
face. The near approach of many com
ets, among them Wells', to the sun,
undoubtedly causes rapid disintegra
tion. One has been known to split in
pieces. Prof. Stone, of Cincinnati,
thought he saw the nucleus of the great
comet of lat summer divide, and then
come together again.
Prof. Boss finds from his mid-day ob
servations with the transit instrument
that the orbit is very nearly a parabola,
and there is little prospect that the com
et will ever return to the sun. A dis
atch to Prof. Boss from Lord Craw
ord. at DunEcht, Scotland, helps some
what to explain the failure of the comet
to fulfill expectations as to brightness.

Lohse revealed a sharp bright line, co
incident with the sodium in the solar
ppectrum, also strong indications of oth
er bright lines. This, with the actual
observation of a disc sixteen hours after
perihelion passage, when the vapors
were hot and transparent, indicates a
solid body. As soon as the comet be
gan to leave the sun the vapors began
to condenso so the disc was not agaia
visible. Prof. Ttoss thinks the presence
of sodium accounts for the failure to
throw off a tail of great length. Other
comets have shown the spectrum of
hydro-carbon, but this one is of a differ
ent composition. KocMcttcr (X. JT.)
