Sing Stso, N. Y., May 8. Carlyle W.
Harris, the young medical student,
whose trial and conviction in New York
city for poisoning Helen I'otts, to whom
he bad been secretly married, has at
tracted so much attention, was electro
cuted In prison here today.
Harris had been told when the execu
tion would take place. He retired early
last night showing more evidences of
excitement than usual, his heretofore
strong nerves giving evidence of strain
in the unusual quantity of cigarettes he
smoked. He slept little during the
night, rose early this morning and
looked over a manuscript he bad pre
pared to be given to the press after his
death. He seemed cooler this morning,
and ate a light breakfast at 8 o'clock.
At 9 o'clock the medical witnesses began
to arrive, and half an hour later the
fire9 were started under the boilers
which ojierate the engine which runs
the dynamo furnishing the deadly agent
of execution. His mother and brother
had already taken a final leave of him,
but occupied a room in a neighboring
hotel, from the window of which the
black flag could be seen when hoisted as
a signal that his spirit had taken flight.
The death warrant was read at 8::W.
The reading had no visible effect on the
condemned man. Half au hour later
the prison chaplain spent au hour w ith
