A on keeping up with disease. From the new York Telegram. A we old doctors have a Lively time of it trying to keep track of the new diseases that Are constantly being added to the list of human ailments a said a Veteran practitioner who first put out his professional Shingle Over fifty years ago. A Many of them Are due to the changed conditions of life brought about by the marvelous inventions of the past half Century. Time saving and labor saving devices Are not always unmixed blessings but often bring with them novel forms of disease that would have sadly perplexed the physicians of former years to diagnose. A one of the latest novelties is called a Railroad kidney a and is an affection of the nervous system due to the continuous jarring experienced by commercial travellers and others who pass a Large portion of their time on Railroad cars. Then there is the a Telephone tinnitus,1 which is an aural overpressure caused by the Strain upon the auditory nerves of persons who use the Telephone constantly especially when they Are persons of a very nervous temperament. The symptoms of this new disease Are a ringing in the ears giddiness and neuralgia pains. A a a divers bends is a nervous prostration to which divers Caisson workers and others employed in an atmosphere of compressed air Are subject. A very modern complaint is what is called a Tennis Elbow a which is somewhat similar to the famous base Ball shoulder a and is really but a Revere Strain of the Muscles. The list of new diseases could be made considerable longer but at the risk that some old familiar complaints might be discovered masquerading under newfangled names a hanging on a Friday. Reiffton for executing Cri Laau the fifth Huy of the week. An investigation of the question whether Friday is a Day which is especially set apart for hanging shows that most members of the Legal profession Are ignorant on that Point they cannot affirm whether it wha Accident or design that caused the unlucky Lay of the week to be chosen for the executions. One member of the Legal profession maintained that there was an old custom which marked out Friday As t he Day for hangings because the crucifixion of the it o thieves occurred on t hat Day. Another Light of the Law remarked a you see. Friday is a bad Day. There is Only one Good Friday in the whole year consequently it is looked upon by judges As a most appropriate Day for hanging it May he stated right Here that there is nothing in the above reasons and that it is Only a Chance circumstance that. Four fifths of the executions take place on a Friday. Iii the earlier Days of English Justice when the hanging of a Man was a most Ordinary occurrence and was the penalty which followed lighter offence such As stealing forgery arson and nth Ierio uses As Well As murder hangings occurred on every Day of the week except sunday. The act governing the time of execution provided that a Felon should be executed on the next Day but one after his conviction. In consequence no particular Day of the week was Ever fixed upon. All this was in those Good old Days when lord chief Justice Jeffreys in a circuit of eight weeks sentenced no less than 320 persons to be hanged. Well indeed might he boast that he hanged More traitors than the whole of his predecessors since the Conquest that was after the Monmouth rebellion in ihs5, when the King referred to these doings of his favorite Jud the As a the chief justices Campaign Iii the that too was in the time of the famous Jack Ketch who became so notorious As an executioner that his name is generally Given to the common Hangman in the City of London. It was of this a rope artist a As t he moderns flippantly Call that functionary that his wife remarked a any Bungler can put a Luau to death but Only my Jack knows How to make a gentleman die later on a More humane spirit pervaded English Justice. In was recognized that forty eight hours was indeed a Short period wherein to allow a criminal to repent and to make his peace with his creator. The first step was to hold All criminal trials on Friday. That was not the period when a trial lasted a week or longer. It generally took e court Only a few hours to decode on a felons Fate. Justice was indeed Quick very frequently too Quick Aud a murderer would be sentenced on the same Day. By sentencing him of Friday his execution would fall on sunday according to the two Days Law and As no hangings were allowed till monday the Felon thus gained a Days respite. In consequence of this monday was the usual hanging Day and in narratives of the a old Quot Iii Ley this explains the dark Way in which monday was always spoken of. In 1836 the two Days Law was repealed and the present Law came into Force which allows a murderer reasonable time. The custom of appointing monday for a hanging tilt remained. In order not to have two a a deut ions on t he same Day the judge some times appointed tuesday Aud for nigh fifty years in the English criminal Cater tar it will lie found that ninety nine out of a Hundred executions have occurred on a monday or a tuesday. Nowadays this a listing Tina is beginning to die out although it has Only commenced in England on r be other Side of the water no distinction is made and murderers Are hanged by whatever Day the judge sees Ottawa Cor.
