Sickening Spectacle Wit
nessed in Havana.
FIVE CUBANS PUCLICLY EXECUTED
Torture Inflicted on the Victims by
Clnero' M anifeato.
Havana, March 31. Never in modern
times has there been a more sickening
spectacle than that which today attend
ed the public execution of the five Cubans
condemned to death by the garrote, "as
murderers, violators and incendiaries."
The troops were drawn up in a hollow
square and in the middle were placed a
chait and post.
Raise, the public executioner, had
deputized his assistants to conduct the
affair. The condemned men were
brought into the square to meet their fate.
One had confessed bis guilt and affirmed
the innocecne of all the others, who also
protested they were guiltless.
The first man took bis seat in the chair
calmly, the iron collar was fixed about
bis neck and the cap was drawn over his
face. The execntioner undertook to ap
ply the screw, but was so excited that
bis hand slipped repeatedly. The victim
died by slow strangulation, emitting the
most distressing cries.
The second execution was accom
plished with even more distressing awk
wardness, the executioner being almost
on the verge of collapse.
The protests of the officers and priests
forced Ruiee to undertake the third exe
cution, but he did little better than bis
assistant had done. Rnise then literally
fled from bis post, leaving his assistants
to put to death the fifth unfortunate
Cuban, who Buffered the same agonizing
experiences as his fellows.

Hypnotism in Medicine.
The Journal of the American Medical
Association has an editorial, the general
trend of which is to show that hyp
notism has had its day and is practical
ly being laid upon the shelf, or, at least,
its use confined to irreg-u! are outside of
the recognized school of medicine. This
is a rather curious statement to make,
at least if one measures the interest of
a medical topic by the number of arti
cles written about it. There are few
subjects upon which German physi
cians are writing more monograms at
present or in which they seem to take
a more active interest. The sensational
side of hypnotism is certainly dying
out, but a certain practical side, which
is represented by the word "sugges
tion," has undoubtedly come to stay and
to be used in therapeutics.
T. L. Moody, the evangelist, told a
story in Philadelphia recently about his
life before his conversion, when a boy
of 17. He said that while he was a
pretty "bad boy in his unregenerate days,
deep in the follies and errors of the
world, he never broke so far away from
his early religious training as to forget
to say ihis prayers every night. "1 used
to sleep with my brother," he said,
"and if either one of us happened to
jump into bed without first getting on
his knees, the other would swear at him
vigorously and kick him out on the

The readers of this paper will be
pleased to learn that there is at least
one dreaded disease that science has
been able to cure in all its stages, and
that is Catarrh. Hall's Catarrh Cure is
the only positive cure known to the
medical fraternity. Catarrh being a
constitutional disease, requires a consti
tutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh
Cure is taken internally, acting directly
upon the blood and mucous surfaces of
the system, thereby destroying the foun
dation of the disease, and giving the
patient strength by building up the con
stitution and assisting nature in doing
its work. The proprietors have so much
faith in its curative powers, that they
offer One Hundred Dollars for any case
that it fails to cure. Send for list of
testimonials. Address :
