to to to a a ' I GOOD-BYE ALL" These Were Among the Last Words of Richard Green, Who was Hung in Kansas City Yesterday. An Immense Crowd of Country People Witness the Execution. Yesterday mornlrgdiwned with what we as a comparatively happy people term a clouded sky. The sun wss hidden from sight and the soft nature of the atmosphere betokened a comIi.g storm. IT we were disposed to fel dlssatisnedatjtbe gloomy prospert irhst must have been the feelings or the murderer Richard Green, who In his cell was awaiting only until the hour often o'clock had passed when he would b3 compelled by the stern decree orthe law to bid farewell to th world? The last day he was to know on eartb,elouded; not even a farewell look at the glorious sun was to be accorded him. If he thought ol it at all lie must certainly have felt that he was undergolnga severe punishment whllehcre. Long before ten o'clock tbe high bluffs which In close proximity almost cever two sides of the court house at the corner of Main and Second street were lined with people rrom thej surrounding country, a laree number or whom were women and chil dren. The boot blacks and other arabs of the city Oiled every available place where the best view could be obtained, "lne louowing description Is taken from the Kansas City 3ft ma or THE EXECXTISN'. The cell orthe doomed man was closed to outside view by a black curtain, blch hung over tbe Iron grating. Within this iron box, which Is about sjx feet square, sat the unfortunate man, side by side with his sister and the Rev. Father Dunn. A candle lit the sombre scene, and while the loving sister clasped the brother's hand and sobbed her crief and sorrow, the shouts or the gathering multitude could be distinctly beard from the ouulde. Thus passed the last hour of life for Richard McFarreu, better known ns Richard Green. T11K I'AUIUU between brother and sister was agonizing In the extreme. He stood up and looked into his loving sister's eyes with a look which was worthy ol an artNt's penclL There was a glistening In the bright black eyes, and a lew crystal teardrops dropped silently from beneath tbe Jet-black eje-lashes. What was aid between the brother and sister Is sacred. Their last sad communion was private. Whatever word was sent to mother, brothers and sisters so far away was the private property or the sister. It was J ust 10 o'clock whin the door or the Iron cell wss opened and tbe sister came forth. She was psle as death, her mouth clenched shut with a look or determination upon her countenance which was very painful to behold. Her tears had dried, and with one last yearning look at the brother seated with bowed head in th cell, she walked away. Her face, and not her lips, spoke the agony of tbe hearts broken woman. But she was brae o the last, and walked steadily away through the gas-lit subterranean halls, up to the daylight Hnd to her room In the upper part of the Court Bouse. risioxrso the rmsoxEB. At fifteen minutes past 10, or about ten minutes after Mrs. Topping had been led ou-nv lip rwnntv Marshal Haves. Marshal Liggett, acconiiinled by the Deputy Jiar- suais. me prisouera, jviiumej .utijui . u. U'nvUn mill three or four reporters, entered the Jail. Jailor Farrel opened tbe cell door and mute'y motioned the unhappy man to come forth. He rose promptly, aud accompanied by Father Dunn, stepped lightly out. MIS APPEARANCE. He looked quite young, and but forthesid and haggard look about the ejes,aud the twitching about the mouth, might hae been taken for a young man going to a wedding instead of to hlsdcatb. He was 5 feet 10 inches high, rather slightly Dullt, mid well formed, lie was not stout, but his build Indicated great muscular strength. On stepping Into tbe corridor outside of the cell, he shook hands with tbe officers and reporters, and Marshal Liggett produced a cord a small hemp rope, about the eighth of an inch In thickness. Ills arms were drawn backward and tied from the bick, his hands resting flat upon his body. While this operation was being performed by the Marshal and his assistants. Green closed his ej es aud seemed to lie engaged In prayer ; then opening them, he looked upward, as he said : "I HAVE SO INTEIiEsT in these things,' and again he closed 111 eyes. He was then led forth by eputies.Kesh-learand Langliornc, Father Dunn leading In the van of the sad procession. Then followed the Marshal and Jailor, then the attorney of the prisoner and the Timet representa-tl e, and In the rear a tew or the officials. He walked with a firm step through the cellar leadlnifrom the Jail and out Into the paved court) ard of the Jail, across tlilsjto a small ilooropenlng out into the place or execution. He cast a curious glance at tbe scaffold, as If to ascertain Its size, shape mid workings. Then he cast a steady, sweeping glance oer the multitude ofpeople which could be seen covering the bluffs. HE ASCENDED THE SCAFFOLD with a firm step, seeming to require no aid or assistance. lie had refused stimulant of all kinds, except coflee." Marshal James Liggett produced and read the following ominous document which was a WARRANT FOR THE EXECUTION OF RICHARD GREEN'. State of Missouri, 1 County of Jacksjn.

"Richard Green, have you anything to say T" he turned around towards the north side of tbe scaflold and said : "Gentlemen and friends, I advise you all to be good men; do what is right. Good by all." Then turning to the Marshal he was led to the trap door, and stepping upon the box which stood upon the center, GRASPED THE ROPE In his left hand, and bending down his head so as to reach the noose, he managed with bis pinioned hands to place the rope upon bis own neck. This was taken off by the Marshal, properly adjusted with the knot under tbe left ear, and the noose drawn snugly and comfortably around tbe neck. Then lie cast one long, yearning look towards the sky, and his lips moved in silent and devout prayer And as tbe black velvet cap. which shutout the light or day from him, was drawn over his face be closed his eyes. Even then hedld not tremble. In about two seconds after tbe black cap had been over bis face, Ibe latches upon the trap door were removed by the two deputies and tbe Marshal pressed his foot upon the spring latch holding up the trap door. THES TOE DROP FELL, with a sharp, sudden shock, and the prisoner dropped down through the hole with a dull thud. It was only the work of a moment, but his neck was broken Instantly. There was no struggling, not even a kick. The cord drew very tight into the skin of tbe neck and made a dark red mark, which was almost purple, near the knot of the rope. The execution was managed with the best or skill. Tberewa.no mistake, no excitement. In or about tbejall, and be.t of all, the unrortune man was spared every suffering possible, Marshal JJggett and the other officers of the Jails, deserve the greatest or credit and praise for their most excellent management or the unpleasant and sad official duties. slowly rrrrxo. Immediately after the drop the physicians specially invited by the County Marshal began their examination. County Coroner Lewis aabuttoned the coat and Test and noted the- rsaplratloaa, while Taylor, Day. Woodson, Btager, and Griffllth kept marno. ttol tbe pulllnna At tbe end of tne aslnatw there wa -bo puliation, and at t. the end of the second no respiration. There were lour respirations betwe-n the second and third minutes. The pulsations were noted as follows: Second minute, Ti; 3rd, 101; 4th. 9i; tth, So; Ctn, 7i; 7th. 24; Mb, n slight flutter; Vth, no pulsation. The body was allowed to hang full twenty minutes, and life being declared extinct, was cut down and received on a tin charger by Undertaker Carlat. The black hood was removed and a critical examination made by the physicians, which revealed tbe fact that the neck was dislocated, and tbe head could be turned almost entirely around. The seek showed considerable abrasion of tbe skin on tbe left side ; but otherwise the corpse looked quite natural. It was placed In tbe coffin and taken Into the Jail, from where It was taken by his sister to Nebraska City. THE HURDER. The crime for which Green altat Edward McFarren surjered the penalty ofthe law wss one of the most unprovoked cases or murder on record. The events which led to the crime were as fo'lows: Two boys, uamtd Henry Mlntzlng and Isaac Gardner, residing with their parents In thy Missouri bottom, about a mile east or Kansas Clty.weie walking along the Missouri Pacific railroad track, on Sunday, Feb. 4, 1577. They were met by three young nian, named Richard Green alias McFarren, Frank Miller aud George Tar-iratpr. It aDnears that Green had beeu drink ing somewnat freely, and was in a very bad humor, and picked a lass with Mlntzlng and Gardner, this led to a general fusa,rockk were thrown at Green and Miller while they responded with pistol shots, at the same time pursuing Gardner and Mlntzlng to their uouie aud dared them to come out and renew the row. Green and Miller disappeared that evening and next morning a warrant was sworn out, before Justice Hanson, for their arrest aud sent to Marshal Liggltt to be served. In the meantime Gieen and Mill r had left the city and for a few days nothing ax heard or them. It having been reported to Marshal Liggett that the lu o men answering the description ol Green and Miller were at work In the woods near Independence. DEPUTY MARSHAL HENRY X. HUGHES was sent to look for them. He was cautioned aealust attempting their arrest alone, and It was not supposed he would attempt 1U He lea Kansas city with the warrant ol arrest on Saturday, February 10, 1877, and was killed on that cvenlsg. The warrant, however, was dated February 7th. Arnvlug at Independence, Hughes proceeded lo the farm or woods belonging to a gentleman named Fisber, nve miles southeast of that place, uud there ascertained that the two meu he wanted were lu a small log cabin In the woods, and that they were engaged to chop wood. Accompanied by Mr. Fisher, the Deputy Marsbal proceeded to the cabin in the w oods. On entering, three or four men were seen In the half-ilt hut, and Hughes at once announced his business to be the arrest or Miller .and Green. Miller was recognized and arrested and another man In the cabin was also arrested In mistake for Green. The man assured tbe Deputy Marshal that be was LLlsMksntnhlsmau. and this assertion was corroborated by another person in the room. Mr. Fisher, In whose employ tbe men were, called the attention or Uujibes to a man who stood In the dark shadow or a corner uear the tire-place, saying "THERE'S TOUR JIAS." Hughes turned towards him and called blm by name, at the same lime pulling forth a w arrant irom his pocket which he proceeded to read. He held the warrant with his lelt hand, and it is said that he bad his right hand upon a pistol In his overcoat pocket. Green, who was in a portion or the cabin which was too dark for him to be distinctly observed, called out to Hughes, "You can't arrest me!" at the same time drawing a handsome silver mounted revolver. A he leveled the ratal weapon at Hughes ho said, passlouately, "Get out of this, you . .in, 1.1 d aulck too." As he said this he fired at the officer. The first shot en- iml i hH left lune of Mr. Hue lies. Inflicting a fatal wound. As he fell a second shot was nr.wi ot iiim. which broke one of his arms. near the shoulder. AHer being snot Hughes fired at Green, but without effect. In the contusion caused by the shooting, the two men slipped out of the cabin and went Into the woous. THE CAPTURE. East, west, north and south, the murderers were fast being rounded up in the 8nl-a-bar hills. There is no way jor n man iotraie when the men or Snl start out to take blm in that region. The hunt had been close and iiprnitnnl. and ho well manazed that on the e enlng or running the fugitives to cover, the pursuers were so cioseiy rono;uinnnif iui they could hear each other shout In the r-CMXxjl Late on Sunday evening Mr. J. V. W. Kav-rlrU- u farmer resldlmr 1H e or six miles south nr Hum? ner. KAv two men snenkim; through bis corn fleid. He recognized the two by the desert pi ion he had received during the day, one wearing a gray overcoat aud the other a blacaone. lie gave ineaianu tuuia ueigu-bors at once. and the pursuers were soon closing in on the trail. Tue fugitives succeeded in reaching a straw stack in afield belonging to Mr. Green Johnson, about a mile west of Haverich's corn field, where they had first seen him. They disappeared In the darkness and gloom, and, as it afterwards turned out, took refuge in the straw stack. wnere lliey slept an nigui. w uiie iiiey siepi the pursuers were closely watching around the held a sbot-gun coeriug eery point of escape. About half an hour after sunrise Monday morning, the murderers crept out ol the straw stack aud stretched tbcmstives preparatory to resuming tlicir flight. While they were disputing as to which was north or south, the people to the number of thirty or forty commenced to advance upon them from all directions. STAND BACK THERE!" cried out one ofthe muiderers; ' don't come any nearer; we aiu't going to be taken." Tl.ey at once turned to ruu toward the crest ot a hill close by, and on reaching it they discovered themselves covered by fifteen ortwenty rilles or shotguns. They were then ordered to drop their pistols and ll-.row up their hands. They did so at once, and so saved their lives, as in another minute, had they otfered the least resistance they would hae received a terrible volly from the citizen, who were bound they should not ecapa. The prisoners were taken to tbe residence of Mr. J. W. Meadows, where they were provided with breakfast, after which their hands were tied behind them, and, mounted upon two of Mr. Meadows' horses, with their feet tied beneath the stirrups, they were taken to Buckner, where a special train was provided aud the prisoners sent to Kansas City. THE TRIAL. The prisoners appeared to be strangers In Kausas City, as no one there claimed to know them either by sight or name. Nor did any one come forward to assist them with counsel or with money until tbe latter end of last year. Green maintained a close retlclence from the day or his capture to tbe trial. Kven to his legal counsel. Major B. L. Woodson, he manifested a close reserve. Imparting no more information relative to his past life, than was absolutely necessary. During his trial he appeared to be coolly indifferent, and up to the last hour, when tbe sentence of death was passed upon him, he treated the proceedings with careless unconcern. Tbe trial of Green was brought toaolose and a verdict reached on Monday evening, December 4, 1877. The case did not consume more than three day's time. The evidence against the prisoner was v cry conclusive. It seemed to be fully understood that the jury would not oe oat long, in less man half an hour's absence the Jury returned to their seats, when Foreman Porter read the following verdict : "We, the Jury, find tbe defendant, Richard Green, guilty of murder in the first degree on the second count In the Indictment." The prisoner beard the verdict without the least outward sign of emotion. THE SUPREME COURT. An anDllcatlon for a new trial was taken to the Supreme Court, and a strong effort made to obtain further time. The condemned man did not manifest much anxiety during the interval, but seemed to live in hopes or something better being done to save bis life. When, however, tbe Supreme Court decided that there was no legal grounds for granting the new trial. Green began- to realize the cravltv of the situation. He em braced every opportunity offered for religious consolation. Altnongh lie had been raised a Protestant, his family being Methodltts, he announced his Intention and hisdeslre to be come a Roman Catholic, He was accordingly baptized by tbe Rev. Father Dunn, of SL Patrick's church, who has been his spiritual adviser and comforter ever since. After the body was removed from tbe scaf fold and taken to the grand Jury room In tbe court house It was placed In a handsome cof fin furnished by the county. During the afternoon It was visited by hundreds of people wbo to sastisfy a morbid curiosity saw for once a man that had been hung. The victim as seen by our reporter appeared to bo a lithe looking young man, of about twenty-eight years of age, finely built, with small hands and feet, and weighing about 140 pounds. Uls features were clearly cut, and the pallor produeed by death caused the black hair and large dark moustach! to appear darker and more striking than It bad dene In life. He was dressed in a plain suit of black, and had on a pair or slippers when seen In his coffin. His features were In no way distorted, they seeming to be In natural repose.

So popular have Dr. Price's Special Flavoring Extracts become that but lew kitchens can be found where they are not used ; and their Introduction to any household Is the advent of new pleasures at the table, and higher delight In the lighter edibles supplied by tbe careful housekeeper. Dr. Price has succeeded In this Important domestic necessity in Droduclnr an article hitherto unequal led. His flavorings are peculiarly delicious, and so highly concentrated that It takes but a small quantity to impart toe natural navor orthefrulL ltd&w Hints obi Temperance. Medical psychologists regard all forms of vice as symptoms or disease, and drunkenness as well, is caused by a diseased condition, which must be removed ere that vice can cease permanently. Therefore purely moral means cannot produce a lasting reform In tbe drunkard. Gluttony and the use of pepper, mustard, ginger and similar beating articles placed upon the table dally, and constantly mingled with food, lead more people Into the use of spirituous liquors than anything else. If Inebriates would llTe principally on vegetable and farinaceous food without spices for some time, they would overcome the unnat ural longing for alcoholic liquors better than from temperance lectures. Then only, when change of bis structure, on which tbe mor bid appetite depends, has been produced, either by medicine or change of diet, will he be able to resist the temptation.
