The duties of public executioner in
Belgium sre singular, but not arduous.
The courts still continue to seuteuce
malefactors to death, but the guillotine
has been replaced by a scaffold on which
is posted a copy of the sentence. Much
ceremony is observed in affixing this
document. A troop of gendarmes, with
their imposing helmets plumed v.ith
horsehair, is drawn up about the place
of execution, which they gravely guard
with sabers drawn, whilo the red robod
