Until the Erie canal was opened It

new waterway the cost fell to some

DIG THEIR OWN GRAVES.
English Army Methods In the Execu
tion of Condemned Spiea,
The ceremony of disposing of a con
demned spy In the English army al
ways follows a definite precedent
The unfortunate man Is surrounded
by a detachment of Infantry, and after
be Is provided with a pick and shovel
he Is marched off to a selected spot
and ordered to dig bis own grave.
This done, the tools are taken from
bim nud bis eyes are bandaged. The
attending chaplain reads portions se
lected from the burial service, and
from the ranks of the escort twelve
men are selected at random by the
officer In charge.
These men. having stacked their own
rifles, are led to where twelve other
rifles are awaiting them, six of which
are loaded with blank cartridges. One
of these is handed to each man, so
that no one knows whether the rifle
be holds contains a bullet or not and
none can say for certain that the shot
Bred by him killed the prisoner. The
firing party then marches to an ap
pointed position. The commands "Pre
sent!" "Fire!" are given, and almost
before the Inst word rings out the
volley Is fired and the spy falls into
the grave be has dug.
Nearly every man Is more or less af
fecti-d on being selected to form one
of the firing party, and many men
have been known to faint away on be

overcome as to be scarcely able to
pull the triggers of their rifles.
