staid.. J bis agerl w ile to tbe bean for no
r.lL' i reason than a fancied conspiraer be
t .vicn herself and a neighbor to defraud him
ol some ell dollars. Since bis condemnation,
the prisoner has exhibited a weakness seldom
observed in those condemned to death. OUI
and decrejiuL he looked to his execution as
somethin;: so horrible that suicide was far
preferable. He even tried to starve himself
to death by abstaining from food for several
days at a time. At times during his long irn
priVonmact, hopes of reprieve were enter
tained hr the condemned mam hut on the
dsv preceding that appointed for tbe execu
tion, all hope uas given up. arJ for the Urn
time he requested that his children might l>e

tion drew near, tbe excitement and trepida
tion of the mis Table -Id man Uaame more
and more inleu**-, until at 11 e*clock, w.ien
tbe sheriff entered the cel! to prepare the
prisoner for execution, be became so com
pletely overcome witti weakness, as to be
uuable to stand, but lay grovelling upon his
bed. crying like a child, and shrieking in
mortal agony. So completely prostrated was
he that the power of speech finally deserted
him and he rolled about and wrung his
hands like one bereft of all seuse or reason.
Tire time for leading forth the prisouer tor
execution having suited, efforts were made
to nerve the old' titan for the last scenes
ol his existence. He still lay upon
his cot powerless, and it was
found necessary to lift him into a chair
in this helpless condition his arms were
piniooed. and the black cap was placed upon
bis head. Next came the adjustment of the
noose, during which the prisoner broke forth
anew 1U veils of horror, while the sweat
started copiously from every pore, and every
limb was convulsed as with a mortal agony.
The chair containing the poor wretch
was now seized hv two stalwart officers,
who thus bore him to the gallows, at the
if w hiob Cucue 1 fairly swooned away

The Sheriff then approached and said, "Pe
ter, tbe time has come when I must execute
the setence of tbe law upon you. Are you
ready' You know you promised me to act
your part like a man." The only reply from
the fear stricken man was : "Make haste
—make haste 1 lam ready—farewell!” The
black cap was new drawn over tbe face of
prisoner: a motion from the officer : the
glistening in the sunlight ol the fatal axe as
It descended upon the rope : a sadden fall,
and all that » as mortal ol Peter Cucuel hung
a quivering corpse beneath a gibbet’s beam.
Mrs. Gaskslu—This lady died in Eng

the vear 1800, and was married in 1832 to a
clergyman at Manchester. She issued her
first work. "Mary Barton, auuouymously,

ten much. ‘’Ruth" appeared about 1852 ;
and although not so striking a work as its
predecessor, Mrs Gasketl’s reputation lost
nothing bv it. Another of her popular
nove s was’ "North and South," in which the
incidents of a strike in the manufacturing
districts were nairated. Besides these Mrst
Gaskell wrote stories idr tbe leading serials,
some of which wete subsequently published
in a collected form. But her greatest wot k
was her "Lite of Charlotte Bronte,"of which
it has been said that n > biography has
equalled it since Bosw ell’s "Johnson.” Mrs.
Gaskell was a contributor to the London

evt*r used They seldom bend or break, like the sin
gle Springs, and consequently preserve their perfect
and beautiful shape more than twice aa long aa any
Siugle Spring Skirt Hut ever ha* or can bf made.
The wonderful flexibility and great comfort and
pleasure to any ladv wearing the Duplex Elliptic Skirt
uill be experienced particularly in ail crowded Assem
blies, Opera*, rarriagee. Railroad Cara, Church Pewa,
Arm Chairs, for Promenade and House Drees, as the
Skirt can be folded when in use to occupy a small
place aa easily and conveniently as a bilk or Muslin
A lady having enjoyed the pleasure, comfort and
great convenience of wearing the Duplex Elliptic
Steel Spring Skirt for a sfbgle day will net%r after
ward* willingly dispense with their use. For children,
misses and young ladies they are superior to all oth
Tbe Hoops are covered with 2 ply double twisted
thread and will wear twice as long a* the single yarn
which is used on all Single Steel Hoop Skirts.
The three bottom rods on every Skirt are also DoubU
Steel, and twice or double covered to prevent the cov
ering from wearing off tbe ru*ds when dragging down
stair*, stone steps, <tc„ which they are constantly
subject to when in nse.
All are made of the new and elegant Cu.ded Tapes,
and are the beat quality in every part* giving to the
wearer the most graceful and perfect shape possible
and are unquestionably the lightest, most dtairable,
comfortable and economical Skirt ever made.
