head would have been jerked off.
Tho spine was crushod into frag

his neck nearly cut in two. lie was a
heavy man and tho drop was too far.
Tho execution otherwise was one of
the inbst scientific in tho history of tho

"When thoy discovered theso freight bills,
amounting to 210, with my Initials on 'them,
they asked mo where tho bills wero. I ex
plained tho matter satisfactorily. Tho detec
tives followed mo for two weeks, attempting
to locate Letts Then came an order from tho
genoral ofllce In New York to discharge eery
clerk who was a companion of Letts, or any

days on tho subioct Witness said tho letters
wero so obscenoho destroyed them, but two.
On being asked what reply he mado to them
Col Nelson, of tho prosecution, objected.
Col Crawford stated that ho Intended to
prove that Wood, not Jackson, botroyed Pearl
Bryan by what Wood wroto to Jackson.
Col Crawford stated furthor that Jackson
had tho statement from Will Wood that ho
(Wood) betrayed Pearl Bryan, but Judgo
Helm, after CoL Nelson objected, sustained
tho objections. It was hold that tho only lot

tho two offered' In ovldonco nnd road
Saturday. CoL Crawford claimed that
he had asked Wood of other lottors
written by htm to Jackson and that Wood had
admitted sending other letters CoL Nolson
thought Col. Crawford was mistaken and
Stenographer Brown started to find tho testi
mony, but Col Crawford, rather than tako tho
time of tho court, let tho matter go for tho
present and continued questioning tho witness.

Wood, would havo to leavo town.
Ueforo Jackfion left New Castle Wood, ac
cording to tho testimony, asked Jack3on to
perform an operation, a criminal one, or havo
some one perform It
Col Nelson withdrew his objection to Jack
son tolling what Wood wroto him, and Col
Crawford took nd vantage of It by asking tho
prisoner what wus In Wood's letter
"Ho tald for God's sako to send him somo
remedies to get Pen rl Bryan out of trouble. I
received four or flvo letters from Wood In tho
jSamo strain beforo I went out' to Greencastlo
Christmas I sent him tho romedtes In re
sponso to theso letters."
"Now tell what ho generally said In tho lot
ters, tho s Jbstancc of them."
"In effect that ho was desperate and was
anxious to do anything that would relievo
Miss Brj an and get her out of trouble "

"Well, Walling had suggested that I bring
