A short time ago a qnack experi

black board on whioh the human skel

fellow came to business. "I am eoinji

The men obeyed and the water grew

as if it had been mixed with milk. The

had the following detail of procedure
from his own lips: Tile lynch men as
sociated for the purpose of punishing
crime In a suium iry way, without the
technical and tedi-u forms of our
courts of justice. Dp n a report being
made by any member f the assoei-ition
of a irrime being c m nitted in the vi
cinity of their jurisdiction, the person
so roi.iplained of was iin ne I'lately pur
sued e.nd taken, if possible. If nppre
hendid. he was carried before soma
member of the association and exam
ined, if his answers were not satisfac
tory ke was whipped until they wore so.
TheOT extorted answers usually involved
otliett in the supposed crin.e, who, in
tnrn, were punUhed in like manner.
The) punishments were sometimes se
vere, in consequence of the answers
extorted under the induenos of the
smarting whip to interrogatories put by
members of the association.
Mr. Lynch Informed me that he ha I
never in any case given a vote for the
punifhment of death. Some, however,
he acknowledged, had been hanged,
but not in the oniumim way. A horeo
becaitie their executioner. The manner
was thus: The person to be hange l
was placed on a horse, with I1I9 lian.U
tied behind him. A rope was tied abo.it
his n.k. and its other end, not too
long, was fastened to the limb of a tree
over his head. In this situation the
person was left. When the horse, i 1
pursuit of food or for any other causa,
moved, the criminal was left suspended
by his neck. Tills nas called aid.nj;

incredible," continues Mr. EUicott,
"that such proceedings should be hail,
governed by known laws. It may.
