' The bb4y of the dead man still fiat in the electric chiiir, tlio limbs rigid, the expression of the face (but for the discolorations of the skin) unchahgoi. The vigor of the body was a matter of comment and surprise nmong the physicians. � The jaw bad not fallen and the pleaistnit expression with which Kemmler had greeted the witnesses as he entered' the execution room, still lingered abotft his features. Itwas dotermined that Dr. Jenkins of New York, instead of Dr.'Daniel, should do the work with the sjirgeon's knife, because ot his long e^rience in performing autopsies. Both Dr. Daniel and Dr. .Tonkins stripped off their coats and vesta, and. the surgeon's case was opened and the'glittering array of knives and saws'brought out. The body was lifted from; the chair and placed on the table in the centre of the room. It still preserved its rigidity. A sui.-ill wooden box was placed under the head to support it, and the limbs were straightened out as far as possible. Then a convict was summoned from the prison to take off the .olothing. The reraoviil revealed a Bcajr nearly five inches in diameter where the second electrode had pressed amii^st the base of the spine, showing that the current had burned through into-the flesh. The body looked healthy and^eH nourished. Dr. Shi-ady at thia point,isuggested the necessity of making the examination as formal as though it was to be taken for criminal investigation, and volunteered to act as secretary and take the report in short-hand. This was agreed upon and the first Step taken was to bind a clinical thermometer to the nape of the neck and take the temperature. , The record denionslrated that the man was dead beyond all question. Thei table, on suggestion; was moved over to the corner of the cell, directly under the window, where a iietter light could be had. When^it-was in position a general survey of the.hVlj' wan taken ;and its ' external o6?)diti'.)i carefully noted.  Then Dr. Jenlcirif; took the surgeon's knife aiid'beganoiill'ations. The body was cut open.' -'Tho'l heart, lungs and other organs were 'taken out and their condition noted, carefully. They were all put in Mueller's'fluid for pres-ervation'and future examination^ 'when the organs in the trunk ofithe body had been^eiaiuined carefully .the top of the skuirrwai removed J and the brains; takeii- out.Thia was the � ' ; most interesting feature of the iextimination,- aa'the theory on �which ths � claims of igreater humanity for this method of {.execution are based is the theory that the electric current paralyzed the brain instantly, and thus destroys all sensation.
