Electrical engineer Harold P.
Brown, of 45 Wall street, New York,
has completed the electrical apparatus
to be used in the executian of Joseph
Kemmler, the convicted murderer,
who will be the first man to die under
the new law, providing that hereafter
in that state, the death penalty shall
be administered by electricity instead
of by banging. Kemmler is confined
in the Auburn prison, and will be
shocked into eternity on any day of
the week the warden may select.
A Wcstingliouse dynamo, with an
alternating current will be used.
Kemmler will be seated on a raised
platform in a reclining chair, to the
back of which he will be fastened by
straps around his body. A rubber
cap that will cover allsof his head but
the face will then be slipped on the
condemned man. In the center of
the cap, at the base ot the brain, is a
metal cone, perforated, to which the
electric wire is fastened. While at
tendants are fixing on the cap and at
taching the wire, others will remove
the prisoner’s shoes and socks, repiac
mg them with sandals, the soles of
which are ot metal. Then Kemmler’s
feet will be fastenhd to a metal foot
rest to which other wires will be at
tached. While these arrangements are
being made, the electrician will, b>
means of an ingenious contrivance
concealed in the chair, learn the maxi
mum resistance of the prisoner, and so
be able to tell just how many volts
strong the current must be 'o destroy
Previous to being led into the death
chamber the prisoner will be allowed
whatever opportunity he desires for-
relfgious consolation and farewells
When placed in the chair, only the
officers and physicians allowed by law
will be present. The dynamo and ap
paratus will be concealed in an adjoin-
ng room. There will be a loophole
through the wall, so that the engineer
can watch the progress of the pro
ceedings and be ready at the proper
moment to turn on the death-dealing
current, should there, through nervou-
ness or any other cause, he a mistake
in signaling. At the last moment a
black cloth will be laid over the con
demned man’s face, and an instant
later will follow the signal to turn on
It is estimated that these arrange
ments will occupy at least five minu-es
time. When the current is turned on

You often hear it said by farmers

last week, “that there is no money

‘and no more.’ Now, that’s all a mis
take. I have some money in the

Our subscribers have been both sur

have hit the weather for the last two

ment we had was an old horseshoe, a
two-foot rule and a war map of the
battle of Gettysburg, but we made no

night that everybody kicked the
quilts off. The rain didn’t last but
three days, hut that was sufficient to
let us out.
Our second prediction also hit it
pat. We predicted winds, calm, sun
shine, clouds, high pressure over the
Artie ocean and low pressure around
the mouth of the Amazon, with a
considerable wobble between here and
the Pacific. She wobbled. We got
just what wc expected, and from this
on we arc going ahead like a scared
jack rabbit hunting for cover. Watch
ot several additional trains this win
ter. Not only lias the traffic in the
southern territory been increased, but
the system’s western connections have
been largely increased, bringing a vast
amount of western traffic over it. The
Alabama Midland, not yet more than
half completed, is already transferring
to the Savannah, Florida & Western
Railway a large portion of its western
and lower Alabama business, and with
the extension of the newline will come
increased business. The Plant
system had an eye to this increase
when the officials suddenly real
ilzed that important business called
them north some days ago.
Supt. R. G. Fleming, who has just
returned, said that arrangements
have just been made whereby the
ablity of the road to handle the great
business has been strengthened. The
superintendent said yesterday, that
at present the passenger travel
to the south is absorbing the Sa
vannah, Florida & Western railway’s
attention. From all indications the
travel this season will be unparall
eled. In view of this, two extra
through passenger trains (from
New York to Savannah and Jack
sonville will be put on next month.
This number of trains will be sup
plemented in January by the vestibule
train, making .three fast trains direct
from New York to Savannah and
The schedule, Supt. Fleming said,
•will be a very fast one, and the ac
commodations the best ever offered-
The fast mail, known as No. 27, will
run about the same schedule as at
present. The train known as No. 23
will leave New York at 4:40 o’clock in
the morning and will arrive in Jack
sonville at 11 o’clock the next morning.
No. 15, one of the new trains, which
will be put on Nov. 10, will leave New
York at 3:30 in the morning and will
arrive in Savannah at 12:30 in the af
ternoon of the next day. These are
the three south-bound trains.
The north bound train will pass
Jacksonville at 12:25 o’clock in the
evening, 1:03 in the morning and j:45
in the afternoon. A fast train, known
No. 66, will also t . be put on
from New York to Florida. Train
No. 15 will be a last and very
desirable train, Supt. Fleming
said. It will allow passengers
to breakfast in New York one
morning, and enable them to dine
in Savannah on the next day, being
only one night out. No. 14 is the old
train. Passengers getting early dinner
here will be able to get supper the next
day in New York. The service will be
far above any railroad service that has
ever been afforded from the north to
The vestibule train will be put on
Jan 13. As usual, this train will be
the most elegantly equipped that comes
south. In addition to having one of
the fastest trains on the road, its
accommodations are such that the
most fastidious travelers cannot com
Capt. Fleming said that while it is
not sure that putting on the additional
trains from the north will necessitate
other schedules, it may be that ad
ditional trains will have to be put on the
branches and connecting lines opera
ted by the Plant system. The fast
trains will have an average speed of
about 37J miles an hour. It is under
stood, however, that the fastest sched
ule ever Known between Savannah and
Jacksonville will be inaugurated this
season. Already the Savannah, Flori
da & Western railway has the fastest
record of any southern road, and
its record is faster than that of
many of the northern roads. On some
parts of its line passenger trains have
run a mile in less than a minute.
Some of its freight trains have

Mahone’s latest trick is worthy of
The Viginia outcast is determined
to win at all hazards, and his methods
are unscrupulous and desperate. #
Some weeks ago he obtained a list
of the names of all the negro preachers
in the sute. To each address he has
sent a secret circular.
This circular is the most remarkable
campaign document of this or any
Mahone’s object in addressing the
negro preachers is to call their atten
tion to several chapters of Joshua. He
refers to the following passage in the
“Hut the mountains shall lie thine, tor
it is a wood, anil thou slialt cut it down, and
the outgoings of it shall be thine, lor thou
shalt drive out the Canaanites, though they
have iron chariots and though they lie
In the eighteenth chapter this pas
sage is pointed out:
And there remained among tile children
of Isreal seven tribes which had not received
their inheritance, and Joshua said unto the
children of Israel; “How long are ye
slack to go to possess the land which the
Lord God ot your fathers hath given you?”
And Joshua cast lots for them in Shiloh be
fore the Lord, and there Joshua divided the
land unto the children of Israel according
to their divisions.”
This is worse than the old forty acres
and a mule business. The negroes
in Virginia are great believers in Jos’t
ua, since the Rev. John Jasper told
them how that prophet halted the sun,
and the chapters recommended them
by Mahone are understood as the
promise of a division of the lands of
the whites among the colored people.

they are one of the seven tribes that
have not received their inheritance,
and the weaknesses of these deluded
people are being played upon in every

Snn Francisco Argonaut.
Professor Jones answers (in an Eng
lish newspaper) the question raised as
to whether the tapping and drilling of
the earth for oil, that is going on in
America is dangerous or not—that is
. to say, likely to let out the internal
( fires of the earth to play havoc with
the surface far and wide. He com
pares the earth to a balloon floated
and kept distended by the gas inside,
which if exhausted, will cause the earth
to collapse, affect the motion
of the earth on its orbit, cause
it to lose its place among the heavenly
bodies and fall into pieces. Another
writer thinks that drilling should be
prohibited by stringent laws. The
scientist says an immense cavity ex
ists, and that here the gas is stored;
that a mile below the bottom of the
cavity is a mass of roaring, seething
flame, which is gradually eating into
the rock floor of the cavity and thin
ning it. Eventually the flames will
reach the gas and a terriffic explosion
will ensue. The similie of the earth
being like a balloon is not very solid.
Why not weigh the earth and settle
the question of solidity? The scien
tist can weigh the sun and moon; the
