The Kemmler case is attracting wide
attention because of the novelty of the
mode of capital punishment. i. by
A writ of habeas corpus issuing from
the IT. S. circuit court at Utieahns di
rected the warden of the prison to have
the liody of Kemmler before the court at
10 o'clock a.m., June- 17. The petition
on which the writ was granted setn
forth, at length, that Kemmler is de
prived of his liberty against his will and
in violation or the constitution of the
United States: that Durstou, the war
den, h;ts a warrant for executing Kcin-
1 mler, authorizing the execution to be
made within the week eliding May C5,
1S90: that the statute or New York state,
under which the .sentence of the court
was passed, is in conflict with the con
stitution of the United States, in that
the punishment to be imposed is "cruel
and unusual; that by said statuto the j
judicial function of fixing the time of
his death is thereby taken from the
court and delegated to an executive
officer or some uncertain substitute upon
some undefined cause, and that there
fore the commitment is null, void and
of no force or validity.
The question as to the validitv of the
delegation of power to a sheriff to fix the
time and circumstances of the death of
a condemned man is regarded as the
serious question raised, though others
are not without interest.
If the federal courts decide the
statute as unconstitutional. New York
state will have no law for capital pun
ishment. Ahoct nine o'clock Thursday, two men
were seen by a dry goods clerk to take

thieves lired and hit William Nistel, one
of the clerks. The chief of police gave
orders to ai rest all suspicious characters

In a recent article in tho Youth's Com
panion, on "how to cure a cold," the
writer advises a hot lemonado to be tak
et at bed time. It is a dangerous treat
ment, especially during the severe cold
weather of the winter months, as it opens
the pores of the skin and leaves the sys
tem in such a condition that another and
much more severe cold is almost certain
to be contracted. Many years constant
use and the experience of thousands of
persons of all ages, has fully demonstrat
ed that there is nothing better for a
severe cold than Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy. It acts in perfect harmony

tfhe figurf 9 iu our dates will make a Ions stay,
tfo man or woman now living will ever datf a
Jocumcnt without using the figure 9. It stands
in the third place in 1690, where it will remain ten
years and then move up to second place in 1900,
where it will rest for one hundred jeari.
There Is another "9" which has aLu come to stay.
It is unlike the figure 9 in our dat- in the respect
that it has already moved up to first place, where
It will permanently remain. It i- calh-d the "N
V High Arm Wheeler A Wilson Sewing Machine.
The "Xo. 9" was endor".-d for first place by the
experts of Kurope at the Parii Exposition or I8S9,
where, after a severe contest with the leading ma
chines of the world, it va awarded the only
Grand Prize given to family sewing machines, all
others on exhibit having received loner awards
of gold medab, etc The French Government
also recognized its superiority by thedecoration of
Mr. Nathaniel Wheeler. President of the com Pan v .
with the CroM ef the Legion of Honor.
The "No. 9" is not an old machine improved
upon, but is an entirely new machine, and the
Grand Prize at Pari was awarded it as the grand
est advance in sewing machine mechanism of ths
age Those who buy it can rest assured, there
fore, of having the very latest and best.
