(including postage) Payable Invariably in Advance THE SENSATIONS OF HANGING As Experienced by a Member of the 44Sul cile Club" of London. Max ORell's Letter. A crazy Briton belonging to the "Sui cide club, " of which I did not know the existence,' has published in The Pall Mall Gaette the sensations of hanging. He has actually tried it before the members of the club. It will be a pity if his nar ative has the e!:ect of diminishing the wholesome terror which the rope has hitherto inspired, and I fear It may in duce some silly people to try hanging as a substitute for opium. At first there was a great jerk, and he felt a violent pain in his neck; but after he lost con sciousness the proceedings became quite pleasant, "lie seemed to be transported into a new world, more beautiful than anything imagined by the poets. He was swimming, he thought, in a sea of oil. The feeling was exquisitely delicious. As he swam easily and without effort through the liquid mass he noticed afar otF an island of the most glorious emerald green in color. The sea kept every in stant changing its hue. At one moaicatt it was a mass of gold, as though the sun -were shining brilliantly on it The next instant it was a vivid blood red; but there was nothing terrible or disgusting in this new color. In fact, it kept changing to all the hues of the rainbow, yellow and red being the predominant tints. Ue got nearer and nearer to the island. ' As he approached it there sprang out suddenly from the ground a great number of people whose faces seemed known to him. At last he reached the land. Then a magnificent chorus of voices, human, and those of birds, burst forth. He closed his epes in ecstasy. He floated calmly on to the shore, and lay as a chiid in its cradle, slightly weakened from the enervating effect of the oily matter in which he had been swimming. At last he opened his eyes. The magic charm was at once dispelled. The divine har mony ceased. The faces were still peer ing at him with an expression of eager curiosity, but he perceived that they be longed to the members of the cltlb. " The pain in his neck was great, it appeared, but be was now in entire possession of his senses. His friends cut him down, and he was able to tell them at once his ex periences. Although he drew a charming picture of the bliss which he felt, no other member would try his experiment His look was quite ghastly. To the best of my belief this lunatic is still at large. Attachment of Lightning liods. IBcstoa Budget. Professor Preece recommends as among the essentials to be observed in attaching lightning conductors to houses, that there should be no joint, unless it be a well soldered oue; chain-link rods, braided rope, tubing, etc., are to be avoided; the ground connection must be sound and good; each conductor, if there be more than one, should have a separate ground connection, but are also to be con nected together, also connected with the lead rooting and all masses of metal in their neighborhood. It is, he says, not necessary to insulate these conductors, and there should be no points or acute angles in the conductor the straighter and more direct its course to the earth the better. Telegraphic wire, one-fourth of an inch in diameter, is claimed to be superior for this purpose and is largely employed in England. It is also believed to be a safe estimate that the area protected by a conductor is equal to its height above the ground. Grandmother Garfield. Washington Letter. Dr. Susan Edson, who attended Gen. Gai field all through his last illness and who had been for years an attendant upon the family, was in the White House for several weeks be fore the assasination. She was there for the purpose of looking after Mrs. Garfield, who was very ill at that time. Gen. Gar field's mother was summoned during this ill ness of Mrs. Garfield. When the latter be gan to grow better ''Grandma Garfield" made ready to go home. When the time came for her to go she seemed oppressed with a great melanchoty. She was so unusually sad at the prospect of parting with her son that he put his arm around her and in his most cheerful way tried to comfort her. While he was engaged in comforting her his wife began to urge him to accept an in vitation he had to go down the river for a short trip. His wife insisted that he needed the rest and, as she was out of all danger, she would be better pleased to have him go than not Grandma Garfield here spoke up and said: "Oh, James, don't go! Pm so afraid you will be shot if you go away from here now." It was this fear that has made her so sad at the parting with her son, as it afterward appeared for the last time. The last thing she said to her son before going away was to urge upon him the neces sity of using great precautions against the danger of being shot by some secret enemy. Her fears, however, made no impression on Gen. Garfield's mind. Grandma Garfield, since her son's death, ha3 given herself up to brooding over his memory. She spends the entire day in read ing over his letters to her, and does not ap-, pear to car? to talk about anything else but fcer sou. ROYAL INSURANCE (VMP'Y OF LIVERPOOL.
