SUfiYIYED THE SHOCK
One Maa Who Does Not Belieie in
Electricity for Executions.
A PERIOD OP FEARFUL AGONY.
fifteen Hundred Volts of Electricity Passed
HIS BECOTEBY ALMOST MIEACDLOUS.
An Apparently Strong, Flu la the Cause of Murderer
H. SI. SteTens, of Boston, does not believe
In using electricity for executing criminals,
fie tried it once himself, and the results
R-ere not entirely satisfactory. He is sot
dead, bat he suffered awful agony for a
number of boars, and still feels the results
of his experience. He thinks Eemmler had
fetter be hanged.
Boston, Jane 11. The terrible uncer
tainty of electricity in its effect upon the
human body was never better illustrated
thi in the case of H. M. Stevens, of this
city, -who four years ago received a shock
equivalent to 1,500 volts the greatest on
record, so far as known. The fact that he
recovered, after awful agony, and is to-day
a healthy and robust man, argues strongly
against the claim of electrical experts that
electricity affords a simple and efficacious
method of producing death.
In view of Murderer Kemmler's efforts in
Kew Tork State to escape the execution of
his death sentence by electricity, the testi
mony of Mr. Stevens is very interesting at
this time. He is Assistant Superintendent
of the Boston Electric Light Company, and
to-day gave tbe correspondent a full ac
count of his remarkable contact with the
mysterious electric fluid. He was Superin
tendent, four years ago this summer, of the
Middlesex Electric Lighting Company, in
Lowell. In making a tour of inspection of
'the machines he came in contact with the
brushes of a 35-light dynamo. He slipped
upon an oily spot on the floor, fell forward,
instinctively put out both hands to save
himself and unwittingly grabbed with
either hand the positive and negative
brushes of the machine.
SOMETHING OF A SHOCK.
A circuit was completed, with his body
as the medium, and a force of electricity
equal to 50,000 candle power, or about 1,600
Volts, shot instantaneously through him and
prostrated him violently in the field of the
machine. There he lay for a few seconds,
the current all the time entering his body,
until finally, from his own weight, be
dropped off to the floor. To all appearances
be was dead. All this happened in less
time than it takes to describe it.
The shock was sufficient to kill an ordi
nary man. According to the best electrical
opinion, Murderer Kemmler, in New York,
will receive no greater charge. Stevens,
however, was not dead, and his recovery is
the most remarkable part of his strange ex
perience. They picked him up and carried
him awav. Dr. Brissel, of Lowell, was
summoned. The pulse and the heart showed
so signs of life. The eyes were set, the
limbs were rigid and the arms were drawn
close to the body.
The flesh was cold and the bloody gashes
between the fingers were apparent, showing
where the flesh had been burned. The doc
tors went to work earnestly enough, but the
case was one in which the symptoms were
altogether unknown to medical science.
They pried open the mouth and poured a
big glass of whisky into the stomach. It
had no effect.
ALMOST A MIEACLE.
Kelt the medical men pounled and
rubbed for an hour, but the body never
moved a muscle. The miraculous now oc
curred. This man had all the while been
insulated with enough electricity in his
system to charge another machine. He had
"been lying all the while on the floor. An
attendant at the station suggested placing
tbe body on the ground where it was damp.
This was done and the man began to revive.
After an hoar the patient became conscious,
but it was the consciousness of agony. The
.electricity -was slowly passing out of the
Jr body into the ground.
f Stevens suffered terribly for four hours
after consciousness. He kept gasping for
breath, and tried to articulate but could
not They gave him more whisky, and
continued the rubbing and pounding proc
essed finally he was able to be removed to
bis room in the St. Charles Hotel. Every
faculty and function had been paralyzed,
but one by one they regained something
like their normal condition. The legs felt
'alternately as if they had been amputated
at the knee, or again as if they had been
lengthened oat until they were a. block
long and tapered to a point On one leg,
above the knee, were two light blue spots.
After doctoring him for a couple of weeks
the physicians brought him around, but
from that day to this Mr. Stevens has car
ried the reminders of that terrible charge of
1,500 volts in his body. He is a sort of
dynamo all in himself. He is very sensi
tive to the approach or presence of a thun
der storm, and always feels depressed dur
ing its continuance.
"Do I believe in killing a man by elec
tricity?" be exclaimed, when asked what he
thoughtTof executing a man in that way.
"If o, I do not I don't believe the profes
sion knows enough about electricity yet to
warrant them attempting to kill a man with
it All electricians know. that different
men are differently affected by electricity.
Some can stand a little, others more and
some can take an enormous charge without
fatal result This mast be borne in mind
in cmng a man a charge, and it is especially
important in the" case of executing a mur
derer. Snppose they don't give him enough
and he recovers, as I did, what torture most
be suffer! And why shouldn't he recover
and fool the physicians? If he's a natu
rally strong man, has no heart trouhle and
is well preserved, the chances are that he
Trill pull through if they give him the op
portunity. SOME POSSIBILITIES.
"Or again, if be has been a laborer, ac
customed to manual labor or exposure to the
cun for a long time, his flesh must neces
sarily have become more or less hardened,
that is insulated, and the electricity would
lave less effect upon him. There are ever
so many fine points to be considered; snd
from what I know from personal vobserva
tlon as a practical investigator of the work
ings of electricity, I think it's a very risky
thing to try to execute this Kemmler by
electricity. The science is not far enough
removed from the experimental stage as yet.
I am inJavor of the old-fashioned hang
man's rope, and if lean help Kemmler to
escape his death sentence by electricity, I
am willing to do so by any means in my
Another remarkable thing about Mr.
Steven's experience is that after recovery he
began to gain flesh rapidly. At the time he
weighed 135, and in six months he tipped
ti'ie beam at 165, and to-day weighs close to
lSf). He says it is due to the electricity, but
ju.st why be cannot say.

Be Was Faint From Ilnnjrer.
Perry Walker, a wealthy Somerset county
farmer, was taken from the Allegheny General
Hospital to Dlxmont Insane Asylum yesterday.
He had paid much attention to the details of
the late murder trial in that county, and finally
was possessed with the delusion that he himself
was the murderer. He had been in the insane
department of the Somerset County Poorhouse
and was so weak from starvation that he could
scarcely walk, but at the Allegheny hospital
he was given milk, beef tea and tonics and Miss
Tiloesley succeeded In getting him on his feet.

Pierre Transon, one of a party of French

by a strancer at tbe Seventh avenue hotel yes

equal to his affability he is not likely to be

bill of that amount to pay immediately and the

perturbed and said that a loan of that amount
would be a great accommodation. M. Tran

monev and the rascal in return gave his card
to tbe lender. Indorsed "C. Morgan, City." At
this stage the confederate came along and Mor
gan gave him tbe money, with instructions to pay
the freight bill and get the goods. The first
swindler remained in conversation for a time,
but finally told the victim to come with him to
the banlc and get the money, taking him to the
office of the Philadelphia Gas Company, on

Cured of Catarrhal Asthma,
Mrs. Alice Brownhill, an English lady, but
who has lived in this country for nearly two

afflicted with asthma. It was produced by a
catarrhal poison in her system that was slowly
but surely doing its deadly work. A part of
the secretion that formed in her head was dis
charged through her nose, and a part dropped
down the back part of her throat and which,
setting up an irritated condition In her lungs,
produced asthma. 8he coached, and her breath
at times was very short She had pains under
her shoulder blades, and also over her eyes.
Her appetite was very poor, and the little food
she was able to eat gave her stomach much dis
tress and belching of eas, and every morning
she wonld vomit up her food. As has been
stated, her breath was very short and every
time she caught a cold she would have to be
bolstered up In bed during the night in order
to breathe. When she applied, last April, to
tbe physicians of tbe Catarrh and Dyspepsia
Institute for treatment, the wheezing in her
lungs could be heard all over the bouse. On

Why Are Thev Weak and Can They Become
ns Healthy and Vigorous ai Men? Valu
able Suiig-citlons on tbe Subject
At the Madison Square Garden, New York,
recently, five women, for six days in succession,
rode over 100 miles each day upon bicycles, and
at the end of that time were well and strong.
This proves conclusively that wpmen have
strength and endurance often, equal to men.
Why, then, are they called a weak race? Be
cause they make little effort to secure strength
or retain it after it has been secured. Women
are pale, sallow, troubled with many weak
nesses, and why? Because they do'not observe
the laws of health and keep their bodies as they
should. Their blood becomes thin and beats
slowly. It should be stimulated to strong and
healthy action. Cosmetics will not do this, nos
trums cannot but pure whiskey, taken as a
medicine, will. If the lady of society returning
from a reception or shopping expedition will
use a little pure whiskey, Nature will be assist
ed so that instead of breaking down it will be
tided over until it can recuperate. If the
weary woman who is beset by work and cares
will do the same thing, she, too, will be helped.
Anything that assists nature helps faring health.
The importance of using only pure whiskey
cannot be too strongly urged, but there is little
good and pure whiskey to be had. The only
safe one to take Is Duffy's. It is a Pure Malt
Whiskey, free from all impurities, and has
been used by the most prominent men and
women in America for yean. It is recommend
ed by the leading physicians, chemists, clergy
men, and it merits the great popularity it has.

DISOEDEES OF THE STOMACH.
This disease seems to affect nearly the en
tire human family. It affects persons in dif
ferent ways. Dyspepsia is simply indiges
tion, or want of power to convert food into
chyle, from which the blood is mainly de
rived. The process of digestion may be
more or less obstructed for years by im
proper food, want of exercise, overwork,
care, depression and other causes, before
the marked symptoms of the disease mani
fest themselves. At length follow the ir
regular appetite, discomfort before or after
eating, rising of food, eructations, gastric
irritability, costiveness or diarrhoea, pains
in the chest, pains in the limbs, pains in

gives up to a miserable existence. Such
being the naturo of this disease and so per

CONSIDER LOSSES NOW,
But Pushing the Great Work On,
Until Every Garment Will' Be
In the Hands of the Consumer.
This is the plan we have mapped out the policy we will pursue in
conducting the anti-backward season sale inaugurated by us last week.
We waited patiently for old sol to assert himself, but in vain. Where
was gentle spring? Flowery May? Rosy June? It is a common re
mark now that never has there been so raw, cold, wet and disagreeable
spring as the present It's no matter of surprise, under these circum
stances, that people didn't feel like buying thin, light summer garments.
But these must be sold as well as the rest Profits are out of the ques
tion, of course. The whole thing resolves itself in: What'll the loss be?
But, as the head line of this "ad." reads, we have "no time to stop to
consider losses now." Our united energies are now bent on selling our
Men's and Boys' fine summer Suits. This done, it'll then be. plenty timo
to figure up our losses.
Men's Fine Suits
Worth from $22 to $25.
These Suits are cut in the latest
shapes of Sack and Frock styles
and made from such celebrated
English Wide and Narrow Wales,
Genuine Scotch Cheviots,
Celebrated West of England Cloths,
Simone's famed Woolens,
French bird-eye Worsteds,
Bradford Cassimeres, etc
BEAUTIFUL MEDIUM AND LIGHT PATTERNS
in abundance. If winter hadn't lingered as long in "the lap of spring,"
these goods would now be in the hands of our customers. As it is, we
must solely rely on our prices.
SUMMER COATS FOR THE HOT SEASON
Thousand of 'em, with Vests to match, or without; every kind and
description. Prices range from 29c to $6 for single coats, and from 69c
up to 18 for coats'and vests. White and Fancy Vests (single and double
breasted) a specialty.
Boys' a Suits
Worth from $9 to $11.
You have several large lines to
choose from, including scores of
entirely new "and very handsome
light plaids, checks and mixtures
the very thing that'll strike the
fancy of young men, from 12 to 18
PBPC j Genuine League Ball and Bat Pre- CDCC
rllCC sented With Every Boys' Suit. F ft E. C
DON'T FOR ONE MOMENT THINE
that, because this "ad." is entirely devoted to Clothing, you'll fail this
week to find the usual bargains in Hats, Shoes, Furnishing Goods,
Trunks, Satchels, Hammocks, etc Indeed, we can assure of the very
opposite, viz: We've never given better values in these goods than right
now this very week.
