Solo epitaph this, and an ephemeral
newspaper one at that, of a woman, who
began life aa the daughter of doting parents.
"When a child she-had everything desirable
from a pet parrot to a high priced govern-
"ess. The vague ambitious of her teens
were partially gratified by a course of study
at Girton. Intellectual, accomplished, self
"willed, she sought the achievement of a
Qofty ideal in a runaway marriago with a
suave rascal who did not count on the pos
sibility of her father and mother refusing
ta grant forgiveness. The young couple
came to America, wrote home and waited
tfor a message that never came. The man
grew cold as thu pur.-e grew thin, tried
.abuse for a while and then disappeared.
The woman made a iinal appeal to her out
raged parents. They declined to respond.
She sought legitimate means of self sup
port. They scarcely brought her bread.
'Two routes lay before Tier that of starvn
ftion and that of shame. She chose the lat
ter, and for a time stormed along the er
crant pathway of pleasure like a brilliant
aneteor. But when a meteor strikes the

nothing was heard of her, and her friends

there has ceased to exist the slightest atom

The Changes in American
Modes of Execution.
LIFE TAKING A20NG THE INDIANS
The Savages Were Ingenious as Devisers
of llodes of Torture Lawless Hangings,
the iKigsl Gallows and the Electrocu
tion Method Discussed.
In no department of life has human in
genuity been exerted more than in its
horrible endeavors to refine cruelty and
invest death with fear and pain. It is only
of late vears that science has been called
TOETURrXG A PRISONER.
in, not merely to provide a new method of
execution, but to settle once for all what
is the method most rapid, certain and mer
ciful. Sudden death may be inflicted in a
hundred ways, many of them more rapid
than tho noose. Shooting, if the heart or
brain is pierced, is one of them. The guil
lotine and garrote are swifter than the
hangman. Quick poisons have been ad
ministered during sleep. And now the
electricians claim that the electric fluid
moves more speedily than sensation, a view
borne out as far as such views can be by
tho testimony of those who have received
and survived a stroke of lightning. Any
one of these methods would therefore be
satisfactory so far as suddenness and the
absence of any approach to torture is con
cerned. In old times, however, death wa3 made
terrible by preliminary torture. The vic
tim was crucified, or stretched upon the
rack; horses pulled the limbs from the
body; the French devised iron rings thaa
were passed around the legs or bodv,
wooden wedges then bslng driven between
them and the flesh until the bones and
muscles were reduced to jelly; Sir Will
iam Skevington invented au instrument
that became known as "Skevington's
Daughter," which which so compressed
tho frame as to start tho blood from the
nostrils and from the hands and feet; a
prisoner's cell was constructed, the walls
of which slowly closed around the culprit
day by day, until finally they crushed him
to death; tho body was anointed with
honey in order to attract insects. Persons
wero suspended by weights to trees, or
fastened to tho limbs of trees which were
forced into proximity and then permitted
to fly apart; molten lead was poured into
the ears and the body immersed in boiling
oil; men were buried to the neck in the
earth and left to die by slow degrees; and
so until within the last 200 year the rec
ord of European cruelty in the infliction
of the death penalty is replete with har
x FROirrrER ltitctitno.
Franco still employs the guillotine,
8pcin the garrote, Turkey tho bowstring

gentlemen to commit hara-kiri. In
China they behead and atranglo each

countries elephants tread the culprits to
death, and only a tew yeara ao civilized
England blew insurgent Sepoys from the
months of cannon. The first execution by
hanging took place iu 1241, tho method J
being imported into Spam from Morocco
In America we thus far know only the
noose, and it will probably remain the
accompneo of tho executioner's task until
it has been demonstrated beyond the pos
sibility of doubt that science, with the
electrical chair and deadly current, has
provided a quicker, moro effective and
merciful means of egress froni this mun
dane sphere than wc now posicss.
Until a few yean, ago the American In
dian took the lead in pure, unadulterated
deviltry -f invention in the art of taking
human life with the least dispatch and of
perpetuating the system of cruelties that
characterized t-he Dark Ages. James Fen
nimore Cooper in his novels describes with
horriblo detail many of tLcse savage trage
dies, and t&cy or not ail a matter of legend.

1S5L Its formation was excusable as an
extreme public necessity Society was un
settled, crimes multiplied, the courts were
glaringly corrupt and thieves, pickpockets,
incendiari&s and Jtssos&ins numbered their
victims by hundreda. In this condition of
affairs the well dipaoed citizens deter-
rt Ml Bf
minea to Become a ia2aco"cnemseiTeo,
and the most influential men organized an
association looking to this end.
The first and one of the most exciting of
the cases growing out.of this extraordinary
organization occurred in June of that year
(1651). A Sydney convict was caught in the
act of carrying away a small safe which he
had stolen. The man, a desperate charac
ter, was seized by some members of the
vigilance committee, who conducted him
to their headquarters, where he was tried
in the presence of about eighty members of
the association, sitting with closed doors,
convicted and sentenced to be hung in
Portsmouth Bquare that " night. During
the progress of the trial the citizens had
assembled in large numbers about the
building, the bell otthe engine house hav
ing rung the pre-arranged signal to give
notice of the proceedings. Though much
excited, the populace were not disorderly.
As soon as the sentence was passed the bell
again began to toll, but this time it was
the funeral fc-nwll of the wretched man.
This was ax, just after midnight. Tho
captain of the police force demanded the
prisoner, but quickly saw it was of no uss
to attempt a rescue. Some person climbed
the liberty pole to rig a block for tho exe
cution, but a loud shout, "Don't hraig him
on tho liberty polei" arose from all quar
ters. Voices screamed out, "To the old
adobe,-' and a rush was made for that
building, on the corner of the-square. At
the end of the building a block was rigged
and n long rope run through it. In the
meantime the prisoner was closely sur
rounded by an armed and resolute body of
men. A noose was thrown over his head,
A LEGAL EXKOCTION".
Che rope manned by twenty ready hands
who ran backward, raising tho wretched
man swiftly to the beam, whero a few
struggles and a quiver of the hempen cord
told the crowd that their terrible ven
geance had been executed. At 6 o'clock
the city marshal cut down the body and
consigned it to the dead house.
Only a month elapsed from this time
when another and similar scene was en
acted. Tho criminal was ono of a gang of
thieves and murderers, and was convicted
on his own confession. Other executions
followed in San Francisco and elsewhere in
California, until at last a complete reno
vation of society took place and quiet and
order wei-e restored. A frontier lynching
may be marked with less formality than
that which has been described, a box or a
wagon beneath the convenient limb of a
tree constituting the scaffold and a score
or more of brown faced, resolute men the
self appointed executioners, but the end is
the sanle, and the social atmosphere is
Nowadays a strictly legal execution is

The culprit has been the recipient of flow

from his cell to the gallows in the jail yard
at the head of a procession of sheriff's dep

DYER SCANLAN'S CONFESSION.
It Saves an Innocent Han from a Long
Term in Prlon.
Governor Fifer, of Hlinois, has just re
leased from the Joliet penitentiary a man
who was sentenced to seventeen years' con
finement in 18S7 for a crime he did noi
commit. The man is a Chicagoan named
Timothy O'Grady, and he was charged
with tho killing of Officer O'Brien. The
policeman on his deathbed identified
O'Grady as his murderer, and on tho ac
cused's person was found a revolver.
But at tho trial it was shown that the
bullet which killed O'Brien came from a
44 caliber weapon, while that belonging
to the prisoner was of 32 caliber. Several
other points Beemed iu O' Grady's favor,
yet the jury convicted him and the judge
passed sentence. Some time afterward
Dyer Scanlan was arrested for shootintj
Policeman Nolan, and "sent up" for ten
years. Thereupon he made a confession
stating that he was the slayer of O'Brien,
and on the strength of that confession
O'Grady goes free.
Scanlan is a criminal with a record as
dark as night. In addition to the killing
of O'Brien he is charged with the follow
ing murders: John McMahon, a Chicago
saloon keeper and treasurer of several so
cieties, killed ten years ago by a burglar;
John Miller, a Chicago boarding house
keeper at Mary street and Archer avenue,
killed by a burglar; two trainmen on the
Chicago and Alton, killed threo years ago.
Scanlan also shot and wounded the follow
ing: A Chicago boarding house keeper at
Ashland and Archer avenues, Officers John
Londick, Joseph Leonard and Nolan, and
Scanlan's "pal," Callopy, whom he bhot
because he understood he was about to
make a confession implicating him in the
killing of the trainmen. Scanlan nan also
served several terms in tho Wisconsin and
Illinois penitentiaries, and taken alto
gether is one of tho most desperate crimi
nals in the country.

most noted of scouts aud frontiersmen,
was in Cheyenne recently, and The Leader
gave a sketch of his very remarkable
career. "Uncle Jiinmie" is the "Son of
Alamo." He was a mere lad when that
terrible slaughter occurred, and saw 1M
persona butchered, including his father,
mother, two brothers and two sisters. He
escaped by being carried away by a woman
who was with the Mexican force. Soon
after tho Alamo massacre he fell into th
hands of tho Kiowas, who sold him in 183"
to the Sioux. Two years later the Sho
shones coveted him, and paid thirteen
pomes for tho captive. He was allowed to
marry the chief's daughter. After having
been with the Indians some twenty years
Cannon escaped and served in the Mexican
