his lawyers his his hermIt lie has Always
been a ready cheerful talker when the
subject of the conversation was not him
solf or his act and Its consequences
Bmller has spent a groat deal of his time In
reading theological and reliulou books He
told Mr Edgtrtoa that be nos a Protestant
but he has given no evidence or preference for
any particular denomination or doctrine The
books which have moat interested him were
volumes of sermon
He has devoured Spnrgeon and Beecher and
Talmnge Bunyans 1ligrlm Progress was a
favorite with him The Bible be haa read with
soemlun greet devotion and Interest
Tho only chungoin amller which Mr Edger
tou has noticed as the days woro on toward
the time when bu knew bo must die was that
be grow los interested In outxldo thing and
turned more and more to his Bible lor the
last two or three days he has read nothing else
His talk with Mr Edeonc > this time has
all been dlrfeollyon the point of his preparation
for the future Bmller has repeatedly ex
pressed mselt ts being ready snd confident
I He Is well and strong and his mind
Is I clear His references to his crime
have lIen very few and they have not
Included expressions of penitence The ex
pression of regret which he baa made have
been rather of regret on account ot his wife
and little boy than at hit own end
Mrs Bmller saw him fore short time vector
day She had the boy with her Mr Edgerton
was not present at the time and In his ralk

bad begun that it has been more dltticcltto
prepare the men lor their end this time than
it was before

the hope that there might yet be something
done to effect another reprieve for him To

finnRford has been very aggressive in his
editorial writings Ho threw hliabetb oclety
Into a ferment duierul months ago by fiercely
attacking the wearers of luwn cked dresses
at a fashionable concert of the Ellabeth Glee

ety people some of whom threatened to thrush
him One of them attempted to thrash the
edltorlnclilef of the paper In the nflloe and
an exciting scrimmage resulted in the society
man getting thrown out
Mr ilansiords wife and family are deeply
dlMrease I When he was released he told Sir
