Compared with hanging, in which death ia awally produced by strangulation, with every indication of conscious suffer- ing for an appreciable time m the part of the victim, execution by ulectricity in infi- nitely preferable, both as regards sad- denneos with vrhich death is effected and the expedition with which all the imme dime preliminarydeiailxmay Ix arranged. Hy the latter method the fatal stroke ren- ders iu victim niieoosoiona in an infinite small fraction of a so small as to be beyond the power the human mind to estimate, while, ths same time it. the nerve tisanes and blood to an wnich insures an absolute- ness of death in a apace of time than is possible by any other known method, rn other -words it Is the surest, most efficient and least painful method that has been Revised.
