WOODSTOCK, Ont., Nov. morning daxvned bright and clear; it was ono of those Indian summer day; when men feel joy in living-, and in Ox- ford County j.iil Ueyinald Hirchall awaited the hangman's summons that he was ready to do him to death for the murder of Benweli. The offi- cials at thu jail xvero early astir and some of them had up all night. Birchall had not slopt, but had watched and prayed through tho dreary hours with Rf-v. Wade. Breakfast xvas served to the prisoner at six o'clock. Soon afterwards Shorn? i'arry and Prison In- spector Chamberlain entered the ceil and tho death xvarrant xvas read to tho condemned man. His friend Leethan: had been admitted. As the fatal xvords wore beinij read I'.irthall shuddered a little and, turninj to his friend, said: "Take hold of my hand, old man." The request waj, complied with and tin txvo friends stood toprether. "Have you any- thing to say against tLo warrant of the laxv being asked Inspector Chamberlain finally when the shoril! ceased reading-, and liirohall replied: "I have nothing to say." A big walled enclosure carpeted with green sod and flanked on the east by a building cut up by barred windows let deep into the masonry xvalls, and in a corner a brand new gibbet. Tho yard was full of men xvith notebooks out and anxious looks directed alternately at the scaffold and at a door in tho building approached by five stone steps. This was the scene in the jail yard. They were waiting to see Birchall hanged. It was eight o'clock. Men with tipstaff; were present keeping- back the curious throng that crowded toward tbo g-allows. A final effort xvas made at and the men fell back far enough to leave a cir- cle clear. Then tho sound of measured steps xvas heard to resound on the pave- ment and a man's voice broke the still- ness xvith the beautiful xvonls: "i am the seiurroction and tho and then the speaker appeared, a handsomo clergyman in his white robes, booi. In hand and eyes turned upxvard. It was Rev. Wado and he headed rhn proces- sion. After him camo tho old sheriff and other jail officials, and then IJirch- all himself, very pale and his p.illor in- tensified by the blue c'aeviot suit he wore. When he descended the steps Keeper Perry took hi? left arm and his friend Lcetham his right and betxveen these txvo he walked steadily to tho galloxx's and took his place buneath tho beam. "Lord, let me know my end and the number of my days, that J may know hoxv long I have to live.'' It sounded particularly grim, this appeal of tho minister of the Gospel, to those who knew that the prayer had boon an- swered before it was spoken, for Birch- all's moments then xvere countable on the fintrers of ono hand. Tho minister then shook Birchall's pinioned hand and kissed him good-bye xvhen the XXXlid Psalm was road through and the hangman took Hirchall's shoulders and squared him under the beam. Next he produced the blacic cap and fitted it over his face, and the minister began tho Lord's Prayer. As "dAlivor us from evil." the signal of death xvas given and the form under the gibbet shot upxvard into the air, tho bead horribly twisted to ono side. It wont away abovo tho gravity line and created a horrible "slack." It completely left the perpen- dicular and for a. a part, of the body xvas sideways whu the head gro- tesquely txvisted to one side, but this xvas but the scene of a fraction of a sec- ond and tho body dropped heavily to the end of the rope. The weight fell at precisely ana then strong men's hearts wero stirred and faces turned pale and blood grew- chilled in the veins, for Hirrhall began a terrible sort of gailoxxs d.inco in mid- air. His legs drew up and straightened out many times, his hands clenched and unclenched af is in mortal agony, till to those who looked on in horrified sus- pense it seemed as if be xvould nevr have done. But the hangman came for- ward and held down his legs. Over the upper part of the neck and the lower part of the face, where the cap did not come, the skin gradually began to darken as if congestion was occurring. At Birchall had ceased to struggle and the doctors wore taking his pulse. At that hour it had fallen to sixty beats to the minute and in the next six min- utes he was pronounced dead. The body was then cut down and an autopsy held. The autopsy WAS made in the jail. It was found that the neck wasuoi broken, though several of the liga- ments ruptured. Birchall dir-d of strangulation, as his indi- cated. His body was nourishol and is that of an athlete. The white flesh is in magnificent condition.

KOl'M Sonu- J'urN t ,.n of i-h Nov. is. Prof. Ko-h says thai he is utinrop.irod li.-ate tho source from xvnu-h tin- curative matter of his discovery for cons-.unp'.ion is dt-rivod. Xeittier is ho rca Iv to ex- p'.ain the of preparation. Tho reason he gives is that experimental work has not yet been brought to com- pletion. The lymph is described as con- sisting of a broxvnisn transparent liquid. It is so prepa-od as to be proof against deterioration When, hoxvevor, it is di- luted xvith xvater to the necessary de- gree for usp. tho matter is liable to do- cay. At the onset, xvhen there is much living tuberculous tissue, a small por- tion of tho remedy sutlices to produce a strong reaction. Kach injection kills a certain quantity of tissue. Ir na'nrrvlly results if.at increased doses aro neces- sary to obtain tho same degree of reac- tion. When patients treated xvith in- creased doses experience no greater re- action than nnalfected poisons it can bo assumed that ail tho tiss.io open to re- action is dead. Consumptix'os aro more susceptible, and the first doso should be only 1-1.mid of a cubic the doses being increased by ono-thousandths until they gradually roach a hundredth and up- xvards; though consunptives still com- paratively strong may reach tlio in- creased doses more quickly and xxith correspondingly favorable results. I'atients treated in the early stages of consumption arn entirely free 1 from morbid symptoms sometimes within four or six xvo.-ks. Consumptives xvith large cavities in lungs xvill prob- ably experience the benefit of tho nexv remedy only in exceptional instances, tbousrh many are temporarily improved. There is a remarkable exodus of e.m- sumptives from tho resorts on the shore of tho Mediterranean to Berlin, and tho hotels fiUinsr fast xvith such persons. A large numborof American physicians have also given notice of their intention to bo present on tho occasion of Dr. Koch's lecture on November '.JO. C A N M B V LS' FE VST.
