How It Feels to be Beheaded. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 9 March 1889

How It Feels to be Beheaded. In commencing1 the second part of his in teresting volume, which treats of the decapi tation of human beings, Dr. Loye fays : The folio wing-expliuiation and analysis, if kept simple, will in many places appear dry and brutal. I ask my reader's pardon in ad vance .... in descrying the terrible task of the guillotine I shallnptbe able toex presnmy grief and my emotion without for getting' that in this place Iram dealing with the scientific and not with the moral or philo sophic aspect of ;the subject. ;The simple question, then, which has to be dealt with is this : What passes in the head of a decapitated hutnap;being f Is there any fact in the oft-repeated fitory that the head lives for some moments after it has been separated from the body ; and in connection with this belief Dr. Loye quotes a terrible story told by M. Pettigand about an Anamite who was beheaded by the sword iti 1875 at Sagion. ' . THE Eorxmo stbs nr THE DEAD aobdeb'S HEAD. . , The plac...

Sydney Revisited. [FOR THE GAZETTE.] " How will I spend the day," is often a question asked by many a country visitor. I have no such question as this to ask. as I have already made up my mind. 1 will idle a day away. The Chinese say when you have an idle day spend it idly. Ah, j that WHEN. Yes, WHEN I have, as I j have now, I will spend it in the idlest | manner I can. What will I do ?

TOPICS OF THE DAY. Listen to me, and if you speak me fair I'll tell you news, inaiflerent good to either. If it is half as difficult to secure a seat in the House as it is to get into the Strangers' Gallery to hear a debate, then some candidates for Parlia ment must have an exceedingly rough time of it. On Friday evening there was a great crowd in front of the Assembly endeavouring to obtain access, and every Member who came within range was button-boled by dozens of persons, all in a state of intense excitement. After a deal of trouble I managed, with the assistance of Messrs. Teece and Haynes, to secure a card, but the gal lery was crowded, and it then became necessary to obtain the mystic initials of the Speaker upon the said card before a place of refuge could be found. At last even this was done, and I found myself within the precincts of the great talking shop There was not a large attendance, but the debate was carried on until 12 o'clock by the small fry of the Assembly, Mr....

VARIETIES. » Dead Yet Life-like Under the title * The Antisep Vaults of St. Michaa's Church., Dublin,' Mr.' Arthur Vicars, F. S. A., has published an interest ing paper (illustrated with a photograph), whioh he read before the annual meeting of the Royal Aroheeologioal Institute of Great Britain and Ireland at Leamington. The vaults display a unique instance of peculiar antiseptic, body-preserving, properties. There are five vaults in all, and ail who are attracted by the rather ghastly subject can not do better than procure Mr. Vicars' pamphlet. Of the contents of four coffins, he says:- 4 The appearance of these bodies is similar to all those that we saw, and is weird and wonderful in the extreme. The flesh has, as in the other cases, assumed a dark and leathery- appearance, though the pores of the skin, as also the features, are discernible, the ' abdominal walls' are elastic on pressure, and the fingers can be moved independently of each other, and it is very probable that the o...

Literary and Debating Club. On Tuesday evening a small House assembled (the Speaker in the Chair), when, after the usual routine business had been conducted, a debate was intro duced by the Premier, '? That this House affirms the principle of Payment of Mem bers." Mr. Hull was appointed Clerk of the House. Mr. J. Walker opened the debate, and pointed out the manifold advantages which would accrue from the adoption of the principle. At the present time the humbler and poorer classes were practi cally excluded from the Assembly, and it was ridiculous to say that because a man did not possess means he was not to attend to the duties of legislation. If Payment of Members were in vo^ue, the poorer classes would have an opportunity of having a representative in the As sembly. The rich, who now monopolised seats in that institution were a small fraction in the community, and by paying Members the choice of the people would be enlarged, and they would stand a chance of obtaining better men....
