rhe Execution by Electricity: Capital murder was never more thorugisly discrenited than in the Iatemethod ufkillint I - the unhappy culprit Ktmmler by; electrical discharge. What occurred was really worse than was prognosticated.' The shucks ad ministered were intens t surface.shccks, at tended with.extreme 'tical action, but not affecting directly or immediately the re spiratorycentres. The idea seems to hare been that an electric shock passed through tile head would kill like the blow of a pole axe; an idea which a perusal of one of llehijamiei Franklin's experiments, in last century, ought to have rectified. The doubts which have been expressed about the strength of the current and the faults of the apparatus are out of the re cord. The mistakes were physialonical. not electrical. If the :,loo:1, which is the prime rconductor cf electrical vibration, had been !nlade the conductor, a current of half the strength used would have ,suliled.
