A man ia on the other side ready to seize his head as it passes, in order to steady it, while another stands ready to pull thc rope which lets tho knife fall. Thc knife is, in form, like the knife of a stiaw-cutting box, only much heavier. It is placed diagonally in the two uprights, along the side of which it glides like mill gate; its diagonal position gives it a sawing motion in cutting through the nook. It falls about twelve feet, and so nicely is thc weight adapted to the force required, that it not much more than cuts off thc head without supcrflous noise.

In like man- ner, the man who is charged with thc hold- ing of thc head let? it drop into a basket at his feet, seizes thc basket, and hands it to a man _off thc scaffold, who immediately places it in a wagon with the body; the door of thc wagon is closed precipitately, and at once moves off the ground.
