Into tho air, but one at least was fired at

there can be no doubt in the mind ol any

arranged of subjects of Interest on the farm
and in the home, most of which were
handled by those to whom they had been
committed in a creditable manner. Inter-

THAT WILL l'ltonAnl.T TAKE THE I'LACB Or
THE OALLOWS IN NEW YORK.
Discussions upon the subject of the In
auguration of a new method ot capital pun.
tshmeot.have been going on for somo time
past In New York state. A writer in the
NcwYoik World of last Sunday dilates up.
on the evils ot the present system of execut
ing criminals and argues In n clear and
lucid manner in favor of dcajh by electric
ity, the method that has been so much dis
cussed. Although the taking off ot crim
inals by hanging Is not so painful a manner
of execution as is generally thought yet
thero aro many Instances ot bungling
which results in a torture not contemplated
by the law. As ho puts It, "Ropes break,
men aro strangled or mutilated, tho com
munity Is shocked, justico Is upbraided'
and sympathy goes to tho malefactor. To
hang a man and produce instant death is
shown to bn a matter of both skill and ex
perience, and to find an executioner who
Is expert Is not always an easy matter."
Upon tho subject of electricity he says:
Electricity Is the swiftest and most certain
ot nit possible means by which death may
be Indicted. Nlocty-fivo feet a second Is
tho estimated Bpecd of a nerve sensibility.
Electricity travels 180,000 miles In a like
space of time. The brain is paralyzed be
fore it can feel tho shock, the victim ot the
current passes from life to death without
knowing the blow. Obviously, there Is a
twofold gain In this method. First, it en
tirely prevents a mishap. Tho current
passes when tho fatal joining of tho mrcs
occurs, and death is given. The distant
dynamo gives no sound the condemned
man may hear. He is led to a chair and
seated. One metallic conductor Is placed
against the nape of tho neck, salt water be
ing applied to tho hair to enable it to trans.
mtt tbe current. The other conductor is
placed on top of the head, tho hair being
wet, or on cither temple or both. Thv con
nectlon Is then made and the man Is dead
on the Instant."
The' writer also claims that the moral ef
fects upon other convicts would bo much
better. Ho advocates having tho time of
execution concealed from the condemned
man and the execution secret us "tho moral
effect ot the death sentenco Is often destroy.
ed by tho excitement iu the town in which
it is to take, place, and by the exaltation of
the criminal, who is for days tho central fig.
ure In the community. Maudlin sympathy
has an upheaval in his honor; fiowers.trults
and dainties are pressed upon him; hystcr.
leal women throng to see him, and from be.
ing a felon bo Is made a hero, a martyr
and an example of Christian .fortitude and
forbearance." Then also, "to have tho day
and the hour concealed from the dead man
would rob his lust days ot the melodramatic
interest they possess for his fcllrws la
crime and mako tbo fate more terrible.
There would be no halo about tho head of
a felon who journeys to State prison mere
ly to bo hurled on some unspecified duy
and unknown hour by a s vift and silent
agent out from the world he has offended.
No boasts ot "dying game," no incidents
of his last day and last hours; nothing but
his being swallowed up living by the grim
walls of the penitentiary and cast forth
again some day, dead. '
In conclusion he says: "Civilization de
mands the life of murderers as a measure
of prevention. Most States which have
abolished it have had to return to it. It is
n public necessity that murderers should
die, but humanity demands that tho meth
od shall not be barbarous, tho spectacle
public nor the criminal apotheosized in his
taking off. Electricity, applied in a Btate
prison, meets these requirements exactly.
My 1-lrHt Ride ou a Railroad.
The sight of trains passing up and down
tbe valley every day sets one to thinking.
Tho younger people look upon It as a great
novelty, and as an improvement, but they
havo grown up with the Improvements of
tho place and not able to appreciate it, as
wc, who have known the valley since it
was comparatively a wilderness, when the
farms were mere patches, surrounded with
woods and bushes, when there were no
Quo dwellings, no pretty little towns, no
churches, no stores, when school houses
were few und far between, and when one
postofftco served the people for many miles
'round, with a weekly mail. The prospec
tive thought of a railroad being built, and
trains of cars running up and down as wo
seu them now, it expressed would have
been looked upon as chimerical, as theldlo
dream of somo shallow brain, aud I doubt
it the thought of building railroads along
tho Susquehanna had found a lodgment in
many minds, at the time of which I wrile
For though the miud is bewildered, when
It attempts to graBp tho extent of tho
mighty enterprise, even in this state, at
tho present time it is only a little over fifty
years since the first railroad was built iu
Pennsylvania, the old "Columbia and Phila
delphia road." I remember it well, and It
was qn this that I took my ride. Though I
lived five miles from the nearest statiou,
und though it was us far from Iho statiou
to the city as from our house, where a stage
coach passed every day, yet we chose to
walk the five miles for thu sake of "riding
on a rail." Tho "train'1 consisted ot a
single car, built some what like tho high

thu driver cracked his whip and off we

wo wero let down by a stationary engine to
the bottom of the plane. Here another
pair of horses wero hitched as before, and
