Czolgosz Recovers His Nerve


Assassin of President Said to Be Chiefly Concerned about Regularity of His Meals.

     Auburn, N. Y., Sept. 30.—Czolgosz’s first Sunday in the condemned cell was unmarked by special incident. He is taciturn and his only conversation with guards is concerning meals. His appetite is unimpaired and he seems to have entirely recovered from his recent collapse. He has had no callers and but one letter, although Warden Meade is constantly receiving applications to visit the prisoner and to witness the electrocution. He was “Bertilloned” yesterday. The warden declines to make the measurements public. Czolgosz has not yet asked to see a spiritual adviser.
