McDowell county negro, was hanged at the West Virginia pent- ! tanttary at Moundsvllle last evening for the murder of hie wife at their home In Teager, W. Va. Harbor went to hie death perhaps the | calmest man of the last two doaen who i have been hanged from the gallows at ? the Mcundsvllle prison. "Good-bye. boys, good-bye." was all that he had to say on the scaffold.1 These words he spoke In a fairly firm Voice as Captain of Guards D. E- Shlldts reached for the black cap to adjust It . over his hea I. Harbor, so far as spec tators standing down In the death cham ber could see, never flinched, and, to all appearances, was very little concerned! orer his execution. "When Ton end J Were Young" Harbor v.-ms heaved at exactly at 5:26 o'clock laer evening. It was about 5:12 o'clock whi n V. artien J. Z. Terrell and Captain Schlldts began admitting tho three dozer to the wn'tillon Into the wheel which turned tiu-ni into ths prison. Guard John Hill, veteran ?pf many an execution, formed the death march just Inside the prison entrance. with newspapermen next to a half dozen , prison guards picked for the escort. j When the spectators had all been nd- ? mltted to the prison court yard, warden ! Terrell. <!aptain Schildts. Deputy v'up- j tain W. E. Athey and several guards | picked to assist with the execution came I from the prison administration building | and led the procession to the death-1 house. An Edison phonograph was playing ! "When you and 1 Were Young. Mac- ( gle." as tho death march entered the i execution chamber. Scarcely bo.! the Inst man entered . the death chamber when guards with ( the doomed man were heard approaching ] tho aft'old by way of the stops in tho rear. i "Good-bye, Bo7?" A dark curtain screened the scaffold i from view, hut from the sounds coming ' from tn? scaffold, witnesses knew that j the straps were being placed on Mar-j bor's arms, wrists, kn.es and ankles. Presently Warden Terrell drew aside | the curtain, and spectators saw Harbor i standing strapped on the scaffold, with- j out tho rope or black cap in place. j "Gentlemen." Warden Terrell an-I noumed. "Mils is Henry Harbor, son-' t' licod In McDowell o unfy to ho exe cuted today. The chaplain will offer a word "f prayer." Prison t'haplain Rev. HaroM Gaunt, ' who was accompanied by Archdeacon It. i M. Spurr. offered tho fdiowlng brief' prayer: "God, our Father, Thou who nr; full ! of mercy and compassion, we commit j the spirit of this young man to Thy I tender mercy. U-cept It. we pray, for j Christ's sake Amen." Black cap and noose were adjusted on j Harbor's head mul neck. As Captain! 8 'hllclts reached for the black cap. j Harbor called out: "Good-bye. hoys; good-bye." '?Iwit-bye." tho spectators answered him. Stabbed wife to IXath Without further ceremony Warden [ Terrell s'gnalled for the drop as soon as j all wis ready, and the trap was sprung . at 5 2$ o'clock. Exactly twelve minutes! later. Dr. O. P. Wilson and Dr. It. A. Ashworth. Prison physicians, pronounced > Harbor dead. Undertaker* D. f. Lutes A Son took charge of :be body. Warden Terrell i announeed that the body will bo held until Monday, and that If relatives have ! rot claimed It by that time, the body will he sent to the er.oniatlcal section i of the West Virginia university. Harbor's relatives, according to War den Terrell, apparently have taken little Interest In him. One aged uncle vtslted him at the prison, but none of his other , relatives concerned themselves about him. The crtme for which Harbor was [ hnngod was the murder of his wife, I whom ho stabbed to death with a knife; In their home at Yeager, McDowell | county, last spring. I'rlson Chaplain H. Gaunt said Inst i evening that he baptized llarbor last Monday, and that communion was ad- J ministered to the doomed man yester- , day. Liked the Phonograph Harbor, according to th? chaplain, j spent most of his last afternoon on earth listening to the Edison phono- ' graph. Several hymns were played for htm. Two or three times during the ; afternoon Harbor naked to have played : "When Yon and I Were Toung, Maggie." J and It happened that thl? record was on ; the instrument when the entrance of the 1 spectators to witness the execution ' brought finally to Harbor the realism- ' tion that his 'hour of death had come. ? Hut the doomed negro did not quell, i and went to his death as bravely as any I man ever does. Harbor was rather a light man. and 1 he Is one of the very few men executed at Motindsvllle whose neck has not been dislocated by the hangman's noose.
