A WALKING GALLOWNS"
The Horrible Deeds of Lieutenant r
HANGED MEN FROM HIS NECK a
This Handsome but Brutal Giant of
the Wicklow Militia Was the Most
Cold Blooded and Eccentric Execu
tioner That Has Ever Existed.
Among ;he examples and records of
British tyranny during the terrible
year 179S there is none more extraor
dinary, according to a writer in an
English magazine, than that of Lieu
tenant Edward Hepenstall, known by
the nickname of "the walking gal
lows," for such be certainly was, lit
orally and practically'
This notorious individual, who had
been brought up as an apothecary in
Dublin, obtained a commission in the
Wicklow militia, in which he attained
to the rank of lieutenant in 1795. He
was a man of splendid physique, about
six feet two inches in height and
strong and broad in proportion. Refer
ring to this handsome but brutal giant,
Sir Jonah Barrington in his memoirs
"I knew him well and from his coun
tenance should never have suspected
him of cruelty, but so cold blooded and
eccentric an executioner of the human
race never yet existed."
At the outbreak of the sanguinary 'e
bellion, when the common law was
suspended and the stern martial va
riety flourished in its stead. Lieutenant
Hepenstall hit upon the expedient of
hangin'- on his own back persons
whose physiognomies he considered
characteristic of seditious tenets. At
the present day the story seems almost
incredible, but it is a notorious fact,
revealed by the journalism of the pe
riod, that when rebels, either suspected
or caught red handed, were brought be
fore him Hepenstall would order the
cord of a drum to be taken off and
then, rigging up a running noose,
would proceed to hang each in turn
across his athletic shoulders until the
victims had been slowly strangled to
death, after which he would throw
down his load and take up another.
The "waing gallows' was clearly
both a new and simple plan and a
mode of execution not nearly so
tedious or painful as a Tyburn or Old
Bailey hanging. It answered his
majesty's service as well as two posts
and a crowbar. When a rope was not
at hand Hepenstall's own silk cravat,
being softer than an ordinary halter,
became a merciful substitute.
In pursuance of these benevolent in
tentions the lieutenant would frequent
ly administer an anaesthetic to his
trembling victim--i other words, he
would first knock him silly with a
blow. His garters then did the duty
as handcuffs, and the cravat would be
slipped over the condemned man's
Whenever he hadkan unusually pow
erful victim to do with, Hepenstall
took a pride in showing his own
strength. With a dexterous lunge of
his body the lieutenant used to draw
up the poor devil's head as high as his
own and then, when both were cheek
by jowl, begin to trot about with his
burden like a jolting cart horse until
the rebel had no further solicitude
about sublunary affairs. It 'was -after
one of these trotting executions, which
had taken place in the barzack yard
adjoining Stephen's, green, that Hep
penstall acquired the surname of "the
walking gallows." He was invested
with it by the gallery of Cww Street
At the trial of ai rebel inL that city
the lieutenant, undergoing cross exam
ination, admitted the aforementioned
details of his method of hanging, and
Lord N'orbury, the presiding judge,
warmly complimented -him on his loy
alty and assured him that he had been
guilty of no act which was not natural
to a zealous, loyal and efficient officer.
Lieutenant Hepenstall, however, did
not long survive his hideous practice.
He died in 1804. Owing to the odium
in which he was universally held, the
authorities arranged that his funeral
should take place secretly, while a
Dublin wit suggested that his tomb
stone would be suitably inscribed by
the following epitaph:
Here lie the bones of Hepenstall,
Judge, jury, gallows,. rope and all.
PAIN AND PLRASURE.
The Sensations That Come When -a
Person !s lHenged.
This is the way Rev. J. T. Manni~n
Spare Moments describes Athe way' It
feels to be hanged:
At Fort Barrancas, Fla.,,on April 4.
1S0S, I was hanged as a Oonfederate
spy. I spent four minutes physically
and spiritually between earth and
heaven. Then a Yankee sergeant, be
lieving me to be the wrong man, cut
My nrst sensation when the barrel
was kicked from under my feet was
that a steam boiler inside me was
about to explode. Every vein and
blood vessel to and from my heart
seemed charged with an oppressive
fullness that must find an avenue of
escape. The ner~~-ous system through
out its length 'was tingling with a
painful, pricking! sensation the like of
which 'I never felt before or since.
Thea followed the sense of an explo
sion, as if a vokeano had erupted. This
seemed to give me relief, and the pain
gave way to a pleasurable feeling, one
very desirable-could it be secured with
out death. Wth this sensation a light
broke in upon my sight, a light of
mlky whiteness, yet, strange to say,
so transparent that it was easier to
pierce with the eye than the light of
day. Then came into my mouth a]
taste of sweetness the like of which I
have never since known. And I felt
myself mnoving on. with a conscious
ness of leaving everything behind.
Ten I heard the sweetest music, and
it seemed that more than a thousand(
hrp led in each part, accompanied by 1
myriad:s o~f voices.
.::d the sensation of coming back to
life after I had been cut down was
just as- painful as the first feeling of
hanging. It was acute-torture. Every I
nervescemed to have a pain of its
own. My nose and fingers were seat-s
of the most excruciating agony. In
halDi an hour the pain was all gone, but

He Would Not Paint a Lie Even For
There was no love lost betieen the
mperor Louis Napoleon and his
ousin, Prince Napoleon, -whom the
Parisians called "Plon Plon." The
prince used to- make -abusive speeches
against the emperor, which people
were only too-ready to repeat to him.
'Let him alone," Louis Napoleon-would
reply. "He is too well :known. No
ane would turn me out to place him on
The emperor was correct, for no one
said a good word about "Plon Plon."
He was commonly believed to have
shown the white feather in the Crimea
and never exposed himself where the
lead was falling. An English lady
who in her younger days mingled with
'rench society tells in her "Foreign

as discreditable to Prince Napoleon as
it is honorable to a French artist
While the artist was painting the
istorical picture of the battle of the
Alma, which the emperor had ordered
Prince Napoleon called at the painter's
tudio to make known to him the facts.
On leaving he said he wished the
prominent figure in the battle to be
imself mounted on his white charger.
He sent the horse to the artist, so thai

When the picture was finished and in
vtations were* sent out for a "private
view," the white charger ws seen, a
prominent figure in the ibattle, but
without a rider.
On hearing of this terrible omission
the prince sent 'an aid-de-cap to al

wished, but no rider would be on it

WEIGHT OF A HORSE.
Bad Guesses Made by Men Unskilled
Many people. even among those who
frequently make use of horses, have
little idea what an ordinary horse
weighs and would have much difficulty
to guess whether a given animal stand
iug before their eyes weighed 500 or
1,500 pounds. Yet they would have
no such difficulty with a man and prob
ably be able to guess, especially if they
were good Yankees, within ten or twen
ty pounds of his weight. The govern
ments of Europe have long been pur
chasing and weighing horses for the
military service and transferring them
from carriage or draft employment to
the various branches of gavalry and
artillery. The animals are ordinarily
assigned according to weight. The
French military authorities find that
an ordinary light carriage or riding
horse, such as in the United States
would be called a "good little buggy
horse," weighs from 300 to 400 kilo
grams-say from 800 to 900 pounds.
Such horses as these are assigned to
the light cavalry corps. The next
grade above, which In civil life passes
as a "coupe horse," or carriage horse
of medium weight, ranges in weight
up to 480 kilograms, about. 1,050
pounds. This horse goes to help mount
the cavalry of the line.
Next - come the fashionable "coach
horses" of persons of luxury, which
weigh from 500 to 580 kilograms, or
from 1.000 to nearly 1,300. pounds.
These horses go to serve the purpose
of drill for the cavalry belonging to
the reserve military forces. Above
these there are still two grades of
heavy'horses. The first are those used
for ordinary draft purposes and are
commonly found drawing the omni
buses of Paris where such vehicles
are still in use. These weigh from
1.100 to 1,500 pounds. The heaviest
horses are the Clydesdales and Per
cherons, which are oxen in size and
strength and which weigh from 000 to
800 and sometimes even up to. 900 kilo
grams-that Is, from 1,300 up to near
ly 2,000 pounds. 'None of these Per
-cherons -of the heaviest weight are
used in the military service, but some
of the lighter ones are employed for
draft and artillery purposes.- Buffalc
