Grtsvvold, It. of tlie AiuMerlSr of Boii^efl in. th« Womistboic, bnt., Jail-tie tfo'e'iw Death Calmly. WOODSTOCK, Ont., No*. 18.—Reginald Birchall, who decoyed Frederick C: Benwell, a fellow countryman, froni Eng land on a pretense of helping him to learn farming in Canada and murdered him in a swamp near here, was hanged In the jail-yard at this place at 8:30 a. m. Friday. His death.so far as could be ascertained, was painless. Six minutes after the great weight jerked his body into the air, the physicians pronounced him dead. The post-mortem discovered that death had been caused by strangulation. The usual statutory verdict was found by the coroner's jury. Tho hanging was first set down for 9 o'clock, but by Birchall'a own request il was done half an hour earlier. After he had breakfasted he sat in his eel smoking cigars and chatting with old Sheriff Perry. The latter was solemn; Birchall was not. He seemed to find amusement in the fact of the old sheriff's sorrow for him. Birchall was dressed in a white flannel shirt, dark striped trousers, and slippers. At his throat he wore a tasty black tie. The criminal was accompanied to the scaffold by Rev. Wade, who has been constant in his attendance on the prisoner since the trial. Other members of the procession were George Perry, Birchall's' guard, and Prison Inspector Chamberlain. Birchall was perfectly calm and cheerily saluted each member of the party as they entered his cell. Among tho spectators was Arthur Leetham of Montreal, a friend of Birchall at Oxford. Leetham saluted the prisoner, who advanced and kissed him full on the lips, the tears running down Leetham's cheeks, while B|rchall did not change a muscle of his countenance. Birchall mounted the steps of tho scaffold with an unfaltering tread. When the religious exercises were begun Birchall joined heartily, being particularly emphatic in his "amens." On the surrounding buildings overlooking the jail yard were hundreds-of people who were thus enabled to witness the last act of the Benwell tragedy. Birchall repeated the Lord's! prayer after Rev. Wade while the noose was being put around his neck. Ht submitted to the hangman in his usual matter-of-fact way. There was a slightly wearied look in his eyes, While the doomed man's legs were being bound with a strap Birchall stood with his head erect, looking straight before him, and offering no objection to the hangman's operations. Toward the conclusion of the Lord's prayer Rev. Dr. Wade's voice was filled with deepest anguish and broke. He stepped forward and kissed Birchall, saying: "May God have mercy on you," and retired a few paces. The supreme moment was at hand. When Radcliffe, the Toronto hangman, pulled the black cap over Birchall's face tho latter said, loud enough for every one to hear: "Well, won't you shake hands before 1 go?" This rather dumbfounded Radcliffe for a moment. Then he- thrust forth his hand and shook Birchall's hand. Then stopping back he took-hold of the cord connecting with the latch of the weight above. John Perry, the son of the sheriff, and acting for his father, was standing three or four steps to the left. Ho gave the signal and the bolt was drawn out. The body was jerked in an oblique direction. It moved around for a few seconds with its own momentum and finally hung straight down. A convulsive shudder ran through the frame. Then a blood-curdling sight was witnessed. The hands clasped and unclasped convulsively, the nails entering the flesh and causing the blaod to flow; the legs drew up and straightened out. There was every indication that the man was being slowly strangled. His neck was not broken. Two minutes after the bolt was withdrawn Birchall's pulse was sixty strokes per minute. At the end of six minutes he was pronounced dead. [Btrchall's crime was the killing of F. C. Bonwcll February 17 last in a swamp in Oxford County, Canada. Birohall came to Canada early in tho summer of 1888 to become a farmer, but, finding the work harder and the pay smaller than he hud been led to expect, he stayed In Woodstock. Birchall talked a great deal about aristocrats in England with whom he claimed to be acquainted or connected. His wife seemed to second him In what ho did. These two disappeared in thf< fall as quickly as they had come, leaving certain unpaid.bills. When a man was arrested in February last for the murder of the stranger whose body was found in the swamp near Princeton the people were made aware for the first time that Birchall bad returned. Against Birohall there were scraps of evidence which, while not making a complete case, wer« all consistent one with the other, and together were certainly strong. The principal witness was a young Englishman named Douglas R. Polly, who had come out on the Britannic with Mr. and Mrs. Blrchall and Benwell. Felly and Benwell had made arrangements in England to take tm interest in a horse ranch or farm which BirobaU claimed he owned in Canada. According to Felly, Birchall had represented this Jarm to be a mile and a half from Niagara Falls. Beu- well's father, a retired British Colonel, was to pay £500 for an interest in this farm as soon as his son should write tron Canada that he was satisfied with his bargain. Young Felly also had paid Birchall a large sum oa condition that he was to have employment on the farm with a small share in the profits. Monday, February 17, Benwell and Blrcball bad taken the Grand Trunk southern division train to go to the alleged stock farm. That night Birchall returned alone, explaining that Benwell bad gone on further, probably intending to call at London, Ont. The two men, however, were seen to get off at Eastwood station and go across the ttelda iu a direction which would take them to tbe swamp. Birchall was subsequently seen tore- '8oa turn alone. Two days later Benwell's body was found in the swamp.] ta ei«enc*« and48th,the: .U r oad (BvanS eeltokete frorn Chicago fin points to Florence.

"What are all my possessions to me, since I am a victim of consumption ? My doctor tells me that I have but a few months to live, for the disease is incurable. I am poorer than that beggar yonder." "But,'* interupted the friend to whom he spoke* "consumption can be cured. If takei. in time, Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical: Discovery will eradicate every vestige- of the disease from your system." "rll try it," said the millionaire, and he did; and to-day there is not a healthier, happier man to be found anywhere. The "Discovery" strikes at the seat of the complaint. Consumption is a disease of the blood—is nothing more nor less than lung-scrofula—and it must and does yield to this wonderful remedy. "Golden Medical Discovery" is not only an acknowledged remedy for that terribly fatal malady, when taken in time and given a fair trial, but also for all forms of Scrofulous, Skin and Scalp' Diseases, as White Swellings, Fever- sores, Hip-joint Disease, Salt-rheum, Tetter, Eczema. Boils, Carbuncles, Erysipelas and kindred ailments.
