What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Till: BRYSON HANGING. Last Friday morning Gene Dun- can Bryson suffered thus death penalty for thè murder of Annie Lindstrom, of which crime he had been duly con- victed in the District Court of Jeffer- son county. He retained hope of a oommutation of his sentence up to that morning, but at eight o'clock Goy. White telegraphed that he could not interfere with the mandate of the law, and in leas than three hours af- terward Bryson was a corpse. A few days previous to the date fixed for the execution,. Bryson evidently concluded that there was little hope, and he sent for Rev. T. A. Wickes to administer religious consolation. Mr. Wickets' and others promptly respond- ed to the call and before the execution Bryson claimed to feel divine akitillr- mice that he would find happiness af- ter death. He manifested no -irartic- ular dread of his fate, and he spent the night before his execution in sing- ing, praying, talking, and preparing in writing a speech to be made from the scaffold. At midnight he went to , sleep and rested well until six O'clock of the morning of his death. Shortly after half past ten he was marched to the gallows, he goiew - with a firm step and without any assistance. Taking his place under tile rope, he read the manuscript which he had prepared - and in which hen protested his inn°. c4nce of the crime with which he was charged, distended sonic of the evi- dence in an effort to prove his inno- cence, assailed a detective who had been active in working tip the case, and claimed to be a martyr to the popular demand for a victim. The paper, which was quite lengthy, was read in a clear, distinct, and forcible tone of voice, without a tremor, and the speaker emphasizing special points by a -change in toue, by -motion of the body, and by raising the eyes and resting them for a few seconds upon the audience. Upon the comple- tion of the reading, Bryson handed the manuscript to the Sheriff with the request that it be given to his (Bry- son's) fathar, and then said: \Officers do your duty!\ While the officers were binding his limbs, Bryson mut- tered: \May God have mercy on my soul!\ but there was no other sign of emotion, not even a &urge of coun- tenance. In a few moments the black cap „as drawn over his face and in another moment George Duncan Bry- son was launched into eternity. - After hanging twelve to fifteen min- utes the physicians present declared life to be extinct. The body was then lowered and placed in a coffin and the remains were then conveyed to the undertaking rooms of H. C,,,Hunt 81 Co. As the wagon passed the Windsor House, the poor old father of the dead man stepped to the rear of the wagon and with uncovered head followed it to the undertaking rooms. The >My remained at Hunt's until four o'clock in the afternoon, when it was interred in the Boulder cemetery, quite a number of citizens sitowing their respect for the old father by ac- companying the remains to the grave.
