First Day of His Last Week

     Auburn, N. Y., September 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 “Bertillioned” yesterday. The warden declines to make measurements public. Czolgosz has not yet asked to see a spiritual adviser.
