to purify tho blood-stained soul of the
trembling victim ; there was tho platform,
tho gallows, tho robo, the drop, and ob
served of all, there stood tho cringing,
shivering outcast, who was to uipatiato
his crime by yielding up his miserable
lifo as the last lesson ho could read to
ovil doers. That criminal was the
preacher, robed in a frock of white, gir
dled by a black sash, and on his brow
tho fatal cap. During this dressing for
the crave, tho distracted man cried otit
