'I saw tho two sples arrestcd: I was present nt the trlal and nt tho executlon; 1 can glvo you nll tho detalls of lt, for tho drcadful spectacle haunts mo, nnd I cnnnot forgct It." And ln half an hour tho wounded ofH- cer, pauslng only when the paln of hls rlght knee, wounded by tho burstlng of n Jnpanese shell, nnd from whlch tho splln- ters hnd not yet been rcmoved, becnme too keon, nnrrntcd to mo tho followlng ovents "I cnn glve my tcstlmony that, when the two prlsoners were brought lnto the little room of tho Chlnesc fnnsn, trans formcd lnto n courtroom by tho Hnrbln councll of war, l)oth the Judges and the publlc the latter composed nlmost cx cluslvcly of olllccrs could not avold manlfestlng oponly thelr cnthuslastlc ad mlmtlon for them. . And, Indeed, thoso men wero nctuated by the most nohle scntlments; they hnd resolved, ns patrlots, t6 make use of nny nieans to nssuro victory to thelr slde, and, ns soldlcrs, under superlor ordcrs, they went t meet ccrtnln death. "The trlal took tho ordlnary courso: tho arBuments on elther slde offered nothlng of Interest, tho prlsoners havlng loudly, and not wlthout patrlotlc prlde, nssumed tho responslbillty of tho crlmo of whlch they were nccused. "They gave thelr nnmes nnd thelr tltles wlthout the sllBhtest trcmor of the volce: " 'Tchomo Jokokn, forty-four yenrs of nge, coloncl of the General Staff, Brad ualed wlth honors from the Mllltar' Hlgh School of Jeddo,' sald the elder of tho prlsoners, n short, stout man, wlth n strong face.

The Inlerpreters translatcd to the prls oners the mllltary prosecutor's specch sklng the punlshment of death by hang lng. I wntched the countcnnnces of the two men, and I could not obscrve ln them tho llclitest Indlcatlon of icar. They re malned Impasslve; tho palnful worklng of thelr minds wns bctrayed by no slBn The counsel of the two Japanese ask- d that the sentcnce of death should bo commuteJ to lmprisonment wlth hard la- tho nccused men havlng mado a com- plete confesslon.

The dellberatlons lasted for half nn hour nnd the court condemned the two offleers to the mnxlmum pcnnlty, tho scaf fold. Col. Jokoka and Capt. Jokkl heard thelr sentence wlth ns detnched nn nlr ns If it hnd concerned indlfferent persons. It ls probahle that if tho sentence had been less severe they would havo shown some surprlse. The sentence was to bo executed on the followlng mornlng at one o'clock; all that was walted for was n dlspatch from Gen, Kuropatkln conflrmlng lt. "Tho telegram arrived promptly; tho Benrallsslmo npprovea tho condemnatlon but sparcd the Japanese ofllcers the hu mlllntlon of tho scnffold and grnnted them tho grnco of belng shot, accordlng them n soldler s death. I was present when tho commandant read to tho prlsoners Gen. Kuropatkln order. It Is well,' responded Col.

"When the commandant camo for the prlsoners, Col.

"But would It not bo better for me to send thls money to your famllles?' " 'Oh, no' cricd both the condemned men together. 'The Mikado wlll not forget our wlves and chlldren..'

"I mado up my mlnd that I would tako no moro mediciuo nftor that which tho doctor had lof t mo wna used up. In tho mcantimo ono of tho ndvortisiug books of tho Dr. Williams' Piuk Pills for Pnlo Peoplo was thrown in ntmy door.

"I begau to cct relief white I was takiug tho flr.st box nud wheii I had taken thrco boxes I was like n new per- sou.

I cnn ent nnythiug now. I am strong agnin and entirely cured. Theso pills aro sold by nll druggists throughout tho world. 'Jokkl appcared to hcsltate for a mo ment; ho looked at hls companlon in mls fovtune, who reltcrated hls deslre to make his coinpensitlon for the evil ho had done on thls earth, nnd the captaln bont hls head in acqulescence wlth tho wish of hls brother ln nrms. 'The Russlan commandant ylelded, nnd asked the two Jnpanese lf there was any- thltiR ln whlch ho could be of servlce to them. I should like to have a bath, if it were posslble,' sald the Buddhlst. 'After that we shall bo at your orders.' A bathroom belng an objcct of lux- ury unknowu nt Hnrbln, the command nnt caused tubs of wnter to bo brought and ordered tho sentlnels to go to ono slde, so that tho unfortunate men mlght be nblo to perform thelr nblutlons at thelr case. Tho wnnt of n bnthtub was felt much more keenly by the Buddhlst thnn by the Chrlstlan colonel. whoso deslro was to seo a prlest before golng to executlon As there wns no I.utheran pastor, the chnplaln of the reglment was sent to hlm rhe colonel bcBBed the prlest to read to hlm the Sermon on tho Mount. The chnplaln rend ln Slav, and Jokoka follow ea the text In hls Japanese Blble, whlch they hnd left hlm In prlson. When they came to the words: 'For if ye love them whlch love you, what rewnrd hnve ye? And If ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others?' he closed the iHink, folded his hands nnd east down hls eyes for a moment whlle hls llps moved, Jokkl,' he sald, "you nre rlsht; you wlll dlo more tranqullly than I, for I have never felt more keenly than now how lit tle In nccordanco my llfe has been wlth the teachlngs or Jesus.' "The vehlcle whlch was to convey the two men to thc nlaco of executlon was al- rondy waiting. Outslde surged the crowd, the hldeous crowd of the Iowcst class every where the same! Idle tradesmen buslness men come to the extreme Orl cnt to avall themsclves of any chance wlndfall. "The two Jnpaneso ofllcers arrived at the place of executlon, Impasslve as ever. Stlll, lt could be seen that the colonel was a prey to palnful reflectlon. "Both of them llghted clgarettes and asked thnt they should not bo bound to the stakes. The commandant took two handkerchlefs from hls pocket and hand- ed them to the Japanese ofncers. "Tho coloncl bound hls eyes hlmself Jokki dldalmully refused to do so, say lng he deslred to see how they manoeu vcred. "A dozon soldlers were posted ln front of the colonel, a dozen ln front of the captaln. " 'If you have plty for these two un happy men,' sald the commandant to the platoon detnlled for tho executlon, "nlm stralght at the heart death will then bo Instantancous.' "The soldlcrs flred. "Jokoka went to the left; Jokkl. wlth out havlng wlnked an cyelash, fell for ward. "Both had been kllled instantly; our goou soimers had had plty for them. My companlon punctunted these last words wlth a groan. He had lnvoluntarl ly moved hls wounded knee. "Confounded Japanese!" ho crled, "In what way have they dressed my wound ed knee? But no matter. That does not prevent my regrettlng the deatli of Jo koka and Jokkl.' And seelng thls vlctlm of Japanese bul- lets so strongly moved by the death of tho two sples of tho enomy, I recalled the words of the Russlan palnter Verestch- ngln, that the valor of both combatants was the most serlous obstacle to the war, And, lndeed, why klll one another when elther slde esteems tho other?
