me afterward. When • man Zannot

for myself than what I did, vie:-to tell
the truth, which, as I said before, could
not condemn me to death; for in Ger
many the law is such that whosoever
does not take the life of any many cannot
be condemned to death. This also I
take for jostles. There Is, therefore,
no more left than the confidence which I

Increase during the day. Sheriff Neety
had for several days been 'besieged by
persons for tickets of admission to the
execution, but owing to the wantof room
to the Jail yard- the number of ticketa
had to be limited. Enterprising Indi
'victuals had erected platform•on the hill
aide overlooking the jell yard, on which
standing room sold at a premium.
The spiritual adviser. of the con
demned men remained with them the
entire night Tuesday, and airline o'clock

cleat in the cells. A few minutes after
twelve o'clock the Sheriff accompanied
by his Deputy, entered ttie eella and an.
nounced to the prisoners that their time
had arrived. Alter the usual preparation
the solemn procession formed and
marched to.
THE scurrow,
The condemned ascended the scaffold
at half past twelve with firm steps and
took the positions assigned them on the
trap. After the preliminaries had been
arranged, prayer in German was offered
in behalf of the unfortunate men by. Rev.
.1. IL Sykes, of the Reformed Church.
After the prayer,
ono of the clergymen
asked Charley if be had anything to say.
He replied, "no." Von Bondenberg
then read the statement made Tuesday
and given above, and appealed to the
other to confirm it. truth. The paper
was read in German, but the tone was
earnest and foaling. Atter concluding,
Bohner said-uwe were both in the bonne
together, both helped to kill, and we
both are going to die together." Von
Bordenberg replied: "It is a shame.
You ought not to say that at the list
moment. It lainhumen." Rey. Steckel
then offered a prayer In German. The
last farewell was then said, and all des
cended from the platform except the
Sheriff. Von Bordonbergasld: "Cf Lord,
beyond the Skies, forgive my sins and
take my poor soul up into Thy Kingdom
Amen, Amen."
Black cape were then placed over the
Leads and the noose adJcutted, about the
necks or the condemned, Bohner„after
the cap had been drawn over his head,
made some remarks In German, bull they
could not be heard. The signal wee then
given, and In a moment the bodies of Ltie
wretched men were suspended between

The drop fell at fifteen minutes of one

resume of the history- of the schools
from their organization here. Accurate
lithographs of the principal buildings,
embellish and add to the attractiveness
of the pamphlet.
Every topic of interest connected with
