In this city el the electro-plated ware et the Gerbam Manufacturing Company. These are the
best finished and most durable in the market, and in recommending them te the trade this
company (whose representations are always reliable) claim ler them the felle wing merits:
" The base of the Gerham electro-plate is of nickel silver. The silver-plated wares made upon
this base combine all the excellence of the solid silver goods except the intrinsic value of the
silver itself. One of the remarkable features of the process of electro-plating Is perfect accu
racy and delicacy with which the finest line of the engraving or chasing traced en the surface
of the nickel base is reproduced en the surface or the silver eeating. Thus all the excellence of
workmanship which has earned for the company its reputation as makers et sterling silver
goods is made tributary te the production of unsurpassed electro-plate. The quantity of pure
silver deposited en the finely finished base exceeds that upon the best of foreign plate. This
ware would be excellent and take a fine polish without a coating et silver, yet upon it is laid a
silver surface which will if net abused last mere than a generation. The object is te produce
plated ware which shall have all the beauty of the solid wares. This high grade et ware is un
dlstingulshable from work in Sterling silver. Its pattern, ornaments and workmanship are
made equal te these for which the Company's Sterling Silverware has been se highly com
mended. Te these condition is added the undennable air or style which distinguishes the
genuine in everything lrem the work et imitators and which naturally transfers itself from

EXECUTION OF RARER's MURDERERS.
Lebanon's Triple Hanging Te-day Wise
Brandt and Hummel Swung Inte .Eternity
Impressive Scenes Prier te the Execu
tion. Lebanon, Pa., May 13. Very few peo
ple were admitted te the jail yard this
morning te witness the execution of
Brandt, Hummel and Wise. The entire
morning was taken up with religious
services. Rev. Gee. Trabert, assisted by
the Rev. F. J. F. Schantz, of Myerstown,
attended upon Brandt and ITummel, while
the Revs. Israel Hay and Ezekiel Light
gave spiritual consolation te "Wise.
At 10:15 "Wise gave notice te the deputy
sheriff that he was in readiness te proceed
te the gallows. The solemnity of the
scene was intense. Wise left his cell first,
preceded by Revs, nay and Light, and as
cended the scaffold with a firm step and a
smile upon his countenance. He was al
lowed te make the following statement :
"What I have te say is that all of us are
guilty, as I testified in court, and confessed
all about it, and hew Hummel get in.
That is all I have te say."
Rev. Mr. Hay, accompanied Wise te the
scaffold and prayed and sung the fami
liar hymn in German. " There is a foun
tain filled with bleed."
At the conclusion of the hymn Brandt
and Hummel were brought out, accom
panied by the deputy sheriff and clergy
men. The men were all clad in dark
suits, with a boutonniere, made of smilax
and lilies of the valley, which had been
presented early in the morning by their
friends. The men were swung off upon
the same gallows upon which Drews and
Stichler met their deaths.
An impressive scene took place upon the
gallows previous te the execution. Deputy
Sheriff Deininger, the clergymen, Sheriff
Crall and assistants went upon the scaffold
and shook hands with the culprits. Each
ene of them thanked Sheriff Crall for his
kindness and attention during their incar
ceration of two years, and expressed a de
sire te meet him in the world te come.
At WLse's special request he was allow
ed te visit the cells of all the ether prisoners
in the jail, and while balding them good
bye, impressed upon them the necessity of
leading honest and virtuous lives.
At 11:15 a. m. Sheriff Crall stepped
upon the platform and adjusted the ropes
around the necks of the three men ; at the
same time his deputies bound them hand
feet and placed ever their heads the white
Beth Brandt and Hummel were asked if
they had anything te say and they replied
in the negative. AH three men knelt upon
the platform of the trap and engaged in
prayer, while the Rev. Mr. Schantz read
appropriate passages from the scriptures.
All persons having withdrawn from the
scaffold, Sheriff Call sprung the trap at ex
actly 11:18. All three of the men swung in
the air without a contortion or even
the movement of a muscle. A slight trem
or was observable in Hummel's knees, but
beyond that nothing indicated but that
death was sudden and easy. At 11 :S0 Dr.
Lincwcavcr examined the bodies and de
clared them dead.
