A Woman Description of the Shock-
lnc Spectacle That Always Attracts
the Ontcaata of the French Capital.
After the Fearfal Knife Haa Fallen.
Ia these rushing times we might take
for onr motto "Something .New, Al
ways Something New. ' Consequently,
I imagine that the impressions of a
woman at the foot of the guillotine
would not be commonplace. I was pres
ent at one performance iu the Place da
la Roquette, where M. de Paris and his
assistants officiated in the name of so
called justice. The horrible spectacle
haunts and racks the mind and tends
rather to re-enforce the partisans of the
abolition of capital punishment. The
horror of the punishment imposed ren
ders a cnilty man almost worthy of
pity. The eight of a human being,
dragged like a beast to the slaughter
house, np even to the sinister seesaw,
I know many people may be astonish
ed that anybody could be moved to pity
for the ferocious brute, Carrara, who
transformed his mushroom establish
ment into a crematory and had do mer
cy for the unfortunate young man, La-
inarra. whom be threw into the fire
after having murdered him for the pur
pose of robbery. I know all that, and I
do not dispute the fact that the Italian
was a monster, but that is no reason
why we should not be disgusted at the
spectacle which was presented to our
eyes and which I will now endeavor to
describe with the impartiality of a sim
ple spectator, without resentment or
prejudice, but with a heart that revolts
against a scene that has neither the
grandeur nor the majesty of a punish
ment inflicted, but rather exhibits the
cowardico and baseness of a vengeance
which hides itself from the light of day.
The execution was fixed for 4 o'clock
in the morning, but from the hour of
midnight the neighborhood of the
Grande Roquetto was swarming with
an undulating and mocking crowd.
Jailbirds, murderers, footpads and wom
en of tho streets assembled there to see,
as they 6aid, "the Italian animal short
Journalists were admitted into the
narrow space so often described, with
its five sinister 6tones and its legendary
gas jet which is never lighted except on
the evening before an execution.
There in tho rain we watched the set
ting np of that horrible machine which,
according" to the legend, Cagliostro
showed in a glass of clear water to tho
terrified Marie Antoinette. Iu the yel
low and spectral light of the gas jet
that flickered iu tho wind these prepa
rations were hideous to witness. Al
most on a level with the ground stands
tho scaffold with its two arms in the
air brandishing the sparkling knife.
And I, a woman, iu the presence of
theso preparations, could not help think
ing of the family of tho wretch whose
head was soon to fall into the basket. I
thought of his little children, who wero
at that moment sleeping soundly some
where, and of his wife, equally guilty
with him, and who, us it were, pushed
her husband into tho arms of the execu
tioner as :t last resort to savo herself.
What remorse will bo hers when they
tell her abruptly: "Carrara has suffered
his punishment. You are a widow !"
But the day was dawning, and the
lamps were going out. At tho windows
and even on the roofs numbers of spec
tators were gathered as if to witness
some carnival. Tho sight was heart'
rending. Mounted gendarmes and sol
diers gradually came out of the dark
ness, and one might be inclined to rail
at such a display of force at tho execu
tion of a wretch paralyzed by fear, who
in a few moments would appoar upon
the scene tied hand and foot.
There was some little commotion
among the crowd when people began to
point at a thin, old man who ( hobbled
about with tho gestures of a dancing
jack to sec if the knife in the brass run
ners was in good working order. This
was Deibler, the execntioner. a ghost
with a white beard, who adjusted tho
instrument with the indifference of a
grocer weighing his goods. Suddenly
there was profound silence; the raiu
was over, heads were uncovered and
motionless. Breathless and almost in
agony the crowd followed with staring
eyes tho movement of the doors of the
prison, which at last opened wide.
A suppressed "Ah !" camo from many
contracted chests, while with palo faces
all gazed upon the assassin, whose
crime themonntebanks of tho fairs pop
ularized. He was simply frightful to
look at, bowed down as he was with
terror. He did not look like a human
being. He looked like a beast. His in
telligence was already dead and his
heart had lost all feeling. Tho instinct
of the animal still remained. The sight
was dreadfully sad.
VN bat followed beggars description.
The executioner and his aids seemed no
longer to be men emploved to carry out
the ends of justice: thev looked like
butchsrs. They seized the condemned
man, some by the ears, some by the
legs, while others held down the oenter
of the body andtkept holding lim tip to
the very moment when, with a 6udden
rumble, the knife fell, the head re
bounded into the basket and the abomi
nation was at au end.
But one should lie present and see the
pavements covered with blood, the gory
knife, the blood spurting from the do-
capitated trunk, the ignominious wash
ing at the nearby fountain and the gut
ters rolling to the sewer a purple color
ed mud, in order to be able to compre
hend all the horrors of an execution in

Io Not Read In the Cars.
A London publisher whose eyesight
has become so impaired that ho finds
himself able to do scarcely any reading
warns readers against working their
eyes when traveling in the cars. He
"For many years past I have been in
the habit of reading and writing for
some hours in the train almost daily.
and my present trouble is undoubtedly
traceable to this cause.
Oculists are now unanimous in the
statement that after a certain time,
which varies in different individuals,
reading in the cars is a positive danger
to eyesight. The page is in constant vi
bration, and the eves are strained in
trying to follow automatically the rapid
movements. Too much light is almost
as bad as too little. Reading by a pow
erful electric light invariably brings on
eye troubles. People would make their
eyes remain serviceable much longer if
the instant the printed letter becomes
blurry or the reading matter gets out
of focus they would seek the best pro
fessional skill and prepare to use glasses.

A Flirtation Checked.
One dav whon Queen V ictoria was
present in her carriage at a military re
view the princess royal, tnen ratner a
willful girl of 13 or 14, sitting on the
front seat, seemed disposed to be rather
familiar and coquettish with sorno
young officers of tho escort. Her majesty
gave several reproving looks without
avail. At length, in flirting her hand
kerchief over the sides of the carriage,
the princess dropped it. too evidently
not accidentally.. Instantly two or three
young officers sprang from their sad
dles to return i tf, but tho voice of the
queen staid tbeia.
"Stop, gentlemen, leave it just where
it lies,' she said. ".Now, my daughter,
get down from the carriage and pick up
your handkerchief." There was no help
for it. The royal footman let down the
steps for the little lady, who proceeded
to lift from the dust the pretty piece of
cambric and lace. She blnshed a good
deal as she tnrned her head saucily,
but was doubtless angry enough.
The Screw of Archimedes.
Archimedes of Syracuse, when he was
in Egypt, invented a machine for pump
ing bilge water out of the holds of ships.
This instrument was also used in the
delta for purposes of irrigation. Diodo
rus Siculus twice refers to it (i., 34, 2;
v., 37, 3). A curious model of such an
instrument, probably of the late Ptole
maic period, has been lounn in lower
Egypt. It consists of a terra cotta cyl
inder with a screw inside it 10 inches
long and 4'.,' inches in diameter. Ni
the center of the outside is a band with
crosspieces. lhese may represent loot-
holds and suggest that the machine
was worked after the manner of the
treadmill. Such screws were probably
made of wood. No other example of
this screw seems to have come to light.
American Journal of Archaeology.
Manners Outside the Navy.
The ordinary seaman's respect for
rank and station when not connected
with his beloved vessel is decidedly
meager. When the president of the
Lnited States visits one of our men-of-
war, he is received at the gangway ty
tho admiral, commanding officer and all
of tho officers of the ship, in full uni
form, the crew at quarters for inspec
tion, the marine guard drawn up with
tho band on tho quarterdeck, the na
tional flag is displayed at the main, the
drummer gives four ruffles, the band
plays the national air and a salute of
21 guns is fired. The same ceremony
also takes place on his leaving.
On one occasion the president visited
one of the ships informally, dispensing
with the salute and ceremony, when
one of the men rather indignantly ask
ed another who that lubber was on the
quarterdeck that didn't "douse his
peak" to the commodore.
"Choke your luff, will yon," was
tho reply, "that's the president of the
United States. "
" Well, ain't he got manners enough
to salute the quarterdeck, if he is?"
"Manners! What does ho know about
manners? I don't suppose he was ever
out of sight of land in his life." - "Cn

The Early Umbrella.
We may infer from the following an
nouncement, copied from The Female
Tatler of Dec. 12, 1709, that the um
brella at this ueriod was regarded as
too effeminate for the use of a man:
"The young grntleman borrowing the
umbrella belonging to Wills coffee
house, Cornhill, of the mistress, is here
by advertised, that to be dry from head
to foot on the like occasion he shall be
welcome to the maid's pattens." About
this time it was customary to keep an
umbrella in the halls of larger houses
for use in rainy weather, for shelter in
proceeding from tho house to a covered
conveyance, ana aoutitless tho one al
luded to in the advertisement above
quoted was for that purpose.
Plurals of Noons Ending In mO."
In the foimation of tho plnral of
nouns with this ending the general
rule is that es is added to tho singular.
as in potatoes, cargoes, bnnaioes, yet
the following words add only 8 : Grotto,
junto, canto, cento, quarto, portico,
octavo, duodecimo, tyro, solo (all, by
the bye, foreign words), and also all
nouns ending in io, as folio, folios; or.
in fact, whenever o is immediately pre-
ceded by a vowel, as cameo, embryo.
etc. A notable peculiarity is to be ob
served with regard to nouns substantive
ending with the sound of o. If they be
words of more than one syllable, they
for the most part end simply in o, but
if only of one syllable, they take an e
after the o, thus, canto, potato, quarto,
hero, but doe, foe, roe, sloo, toe, woe,

substantive, have no final e, as so, lo,

Crabs and Earthquakes.
For some time previous to the day
upon which the great Chilean earth
quake occurred swarms of crabs of an
unknown variety were seen in the bay
of Payta. They all appeared to be
greatly excited and were literally climb
ing over each other in their efforts o
escape the impending calamity. There
weie millions of them, and "ten days
after the earthquake the dead crabs
were thrown upon the beach in a wall
lino 3 feet or 4 feet wide along the
whole extent of the bay. "

Times of War
How Deadly Blood Fends Are Waged In
the Khyber Faaa.
During the time I have been in In
dia, writes a soldier correspondent, the
most interesting period was when I was
stationed on duty for three mouths some
years back iu Landikotal, on the Af
ghanistan side of the far famed Kbyber
pass. Here I was able to forcibly real
ize the meaning of "vendetta," as the
characteristic blood fends of the Afridis
are quaint and interesting.
The pass itself is a neutral zone be
tween India and Afghanistan, but we ex
ercise onr dominion over the road that
winds its way for 21 miles through the
narrow valley. Here, as elsewhere in
Afghanistan, blood feuds are a recog
nized institution among the tribes and
last throngh generations, the dishonor
resting with that family who last suf
fered from some defeat or treacherous
When an encounter occurs between
two tribes occupying settlements on op
posite sides of the road mentioned, one
or other must cross it before commenc
ing firing, as firing across tho road is
prohibited, but on either side they can
exercise their friendly feelings toward
each other without hindrance.
But still quainter is it when tho
feuds are between close neighbors. Each
family, with near relations, occupies a
number oi mud nuts, inclosed in a
square surrounded by a thick, high wall
of mud, stone aud wood. At one cqrner
of these squares is built a watch tower
30 feet high, where the family marks
man takes his position and playfully
picks off anv unfertnnate who shows
himself in tho next square. Constitu
tionals are therefore confined on both
sides and limited to nightly prowls.
