lyle W. Harris was eleclrocutclhote
today at 12: 10 for tho minder of
his school girl wite Helen 1 ote.
tiol was marvelous. His only sign
of agitation was the const int smok-
ing of cigarettes. He w:h up early
this moriiiug and looked over a man
uscript ho hail prepare d to be
given to the p ess by his relatives
after Ins end. At s o'clock ho par
took oi a light breaktasl.

Harris did not ahk lor morphine
or any stimulant this morning. 11 is
only request was for lo oraugm
They were given him.
Twenty-seven witnesses leu of
them newspaper men. were invited
to the death chamber at 12:50
Head Keeper Conuaughton and two
guards then went for Harris. Ho
was awaiting the final summous in
his cell with Chaplain Weill.
A procession was (piickly foimed.
Harris looked slight and pale as he
stepped into the death room. He
paused an instant on tho threshold
and locked calmly oer the .n-
sembled witnesses' scanning their
faces as his eyes swept around tho
room. He walked onliroly alooe
just behind Com aughton and wa
vered for a moment more from
not knowing which way he was ev.
petted to go than from weakness
Uonnaughtoti pointed to the chair
and without even a lock of curio ii
at the thing which was to end his
career he dropped in tne seat. a
he did so he began to talk in a low
voice to the chair 3iid was asktd:
"What did you wish to Fay?"
A weak voice as though each
word cost him a poweiful efforl
said: "I have no further ob'erva-
tion to make. I desire to say that
I am absolutely innocent."
Those were his hut words. After
uttering them he seemed relieved
and settled back in the chair to
which his legs and and arms had
already been strapped.
The first contact was- then applied
at the above hour the current re-
mainingon Sj-J. seconds. In two
minutes Dr. In me applied the
stethoscope to hih heait and pro
uounced him dead
The execution was a complete
mcoss It was plain to all who
wore present tint death had come
at the lirct touch of the cunoiit.
