was convicted on circumstantial evi
dence and no case was made against
me." When the black cap was fas
tened around his face, he said:
"Good-bye to everybody. I am go
ing to a better country."
Taylor was perfectly cool when
walking from the hospital where he
has been confined to the building in
which the scaffold bad been erected.
He walked up the steps of the gallows
between two guards, and upon reach
ing the top examined critically, though
without touching it, the rope with
which he was to be executed. Then he
looked carefully over the crowd and
as he saw an acquaintance on the
scaffold, be reached out and shook
bands with him and inquired how he
felt. When he was asked if be had
anything to say he spoke as above.
A short time before the execution
Taylor was examined by a number of
physicians and his pulse registered
only eight-five and he was pronounced
sane and in good health and perfectly
calm and composed. When Warden
Smith informed the condemned man
that Governor Shallenberger had re
fused to interfere, Taylor said:
"What will you do now?"
"We will have to carry out the or
der of the court," replied tho warden.
Taylor hesitated, then said:
"What is to become of my body?"
"Relatives have requested the
body," replied the warden, "and it will
be turned over to them." Taylor
seemed to have an idea that the body
would be turned over to a medical col
lege and he did not want that done.
Taylor was not executed until every
legal action had been taken to save
his life. He had been convicted in
the lower court, and the sentence af
firmed in the supreme, court.
Appeal was then made to the gover
nor, who came home from a speaking
tour to hear the plea of Judge F. G.
Hamer. After governor bad refused
to interfere. Judge Hamer filed a mo
tion in the supreme court for a stay
of execution and a rehearing of the
case. The court was assembled and
declined to permit the filing of the
motion. Final hope was not abandoned
for the prisoner until 2:30 o'clock and
the trap was sprung shortly there

once the noise of the aerial motor
can be suppressed.
The aeroplane's best friends have
to own that its very virtues fit it for
a career of crime. It goes fast and
far. it leaves no track behind, it can
escape from any pursuer except one
of its own kin. and even then a chase
would be a most uncertain one. Worst
of all. If the birdman is minded rather
like a vulture than like an eagl9 he
can strike his prey in its most vul
nerable part. The easiest access to a

the ordinary trapdoor from being

is the usual route of the robber of
vacant houses, and it is only the dif
ficulty of reaching it that keeps such
crimes from being far more common
than they are.
Only one step more in ariation is
needed to make the aeroplane the
burglar's mount. It must be made to
alight upon a restricted space, such as
the roof of a house, and to go up
from the same spot without difficulty.
When that time has come it is easy
