“Don’t do it” Barbara yells as the deputy pulls the lever.

i 083 a.jpg

Her scream becomes a shriek as she begins to fall.

i 084.jpeg

Her scream is silenced as the noose breaks her fall. For the next few minutes her hands fight to escape the rope binding her wrists while her legs flail about searching for the ground they cannot reach. The only sounds coming from her mouth are desperate gasps for air becoming more labored the longer she is hanged.

i 085 a.jpg

Her eyes widen as she takes her last breath. Tree turns to his deputy and calmly says “Finish her.”

The deputy puts his foot on her shoulder and presses down. Barbara’s face contorts as the noose cuts off her air.

i 086.jpeg

Tree puts his hand on the deputy’s shoulder and says “I think she’s done.”

The deputy leans down and checks for Barbara’s pulse. Finding none he says “I think she’s sucked her last cock.”

i 087.jpeg

Barbara’s body is left hanged for a half-hour. The deputy loosens the noose and she falls lifelessly to the ground below. The crowd gathers around to gawk at her body.

i 088.jpeg

Tree tells the deputy to clear out her corpse. There is more to be done today.

If I’m not mistaken, this may be the one and only Tree story in which he didn’t hang or crucify me nude! He’s losing his touch or he been taking Joan Tree’s decency vitamins. We certainly can’t blame this turn of events on Seagrams, can we? :confused:

I also had hoped a little for any hero who saves Barbara at the last moment ... The one who rides away with her in a wedding dress ... But now it is probably too late ...

But what about the hanging? I'm not an expert ...
Up until now, I thought that trapdoors were used when hanging, so that the hanged victim would break his/her neck when falling ... under his/her own weight when falling suddenly stops ... So that death occurs very quickly and the victim is spared slow and agonizing death by suffocation. Does anyone know?

Uhhh... guys? you know that daring last-minute rescue mission we were planning...? Yeah, just forget it. :confused:

She refused anyway .... I offered rescue from a young strong handsome guy with a magic spell.
Well before you ask ... it's actually not me, but I would have called the fire department to send some ....
And before you ask again about the magic spell - that would have come out a thick red waterhose, flooding the enemies away...

Oh I guess, that last glass of wine was too much, my fantasy is driving me away ...

I was thinking more of a lonely hero who, following the example of John Wayne, shoots through the rope of the gallows with a safe rifle shot. Barbara falls through the trap without being hanged. In the general confusion, both of them escape on prepared horses and the stunned crowd only sees their kicked up dust as they ride away.
Well, justice and a happy ending can be found elsewhere ...
It was just a stupid idea, the victim could be saved once ...

Sounds a lot more orderly than this mess:

That sounds rather like a task for Blondie (Clint Eastwood) in TheGood,The Bad & The Ugly.

But maybe Barb refused to be rescued only because she's expected to be me to be her hero, so she choosed the less evil. :nusenuse:

As sheriff of the territory, Tree supervised Barbara’s execution by hanging at the town’s gallows. Although she was sentenced to be hanged naked, the territory’s chaplain provided Barbara with a somewhat small white wedding dress for her to wear when Tree stretched her neck.

i 085 a.jpg

After Barbara was hanged and her body was dropped to the ground, Tree made a rather crude remark that it was ironic that a murdering bitch like Barbara would meet her end wearing a white dress.

i 088.jpeg

Once he shuffled of the town’s men couldn’t resist their urge to see her corpse naked and they ripped the dress from her body.

Tree didn’t stop the men. This Saturday is a ‘two hanging’ day. It seems Helen Wilson was caught shortchanging the customers at Joan Tree’s Saloon and lifting money from Joan Tree’s money draw. In any other state or territory these petty acts of thievery would have gotten Helen fired and maybe some jail time. But out west in Tree’s territory either crime could get a thief hanged. Helen is showed no mercy and has been condemned to be hanged to death the same day as Barbara. Never mind she is an attractive young woman, she is marched to the gallows for her date with the noose!

i 089.jpeg

Dressed in her waitress outfit it seems impossible that Tree would hang her but those that know Tree understand he will do his duty and Helen will be hanged. The men bringing her to the gallows have had enough of Helen’s resistance.

i 090.jpeg

One of the men hold her steady while the other draws a rope to bind her hands behind her back.

“Hold still, honey, so I can get your wrists tied” the man exclaims.

i 092.jpeg

Now with her wrists tied by the rope, Helen is readied to be hanged.

i 091.jpeg

“It looks like you’re ready to have your neck stretched, lady” the chaplain says as she is marched to the gallows.

Now guys, should we give it another try to manage a rescue action ? Maybe initiated by another one than me, therefore with Moore more success ?
Yes, this course is really the opposite of rescure. There would be still be one attempt left, but I suspect there is little chance of success ...
How about whipping instead of hanging up all the young women? I mean, in the real Wild West there was a shortage of women - little reason to exterminate them all ... :(

Helen is taken for her last walk. She stands on the gallows’ deck above the crowd that had seen Barbara hanged and will watch her dangle from the noose. Sheriff Tree reached towards her with the noose in his hands.

i 093.jpeg

She resists the best she can but with a deputy holding her arms Tree has no problem slipping the rope over her head and tightening the loop around her neck.

i 094.jpeg

“You aren’t really going to hang me” she asks. Helen, unlike Barbara, has seen many hangings before. Hanging days were always good as she profited nicely on those days.

“I think Joan Tree’s Saloon will do very well after you and Barbara are hanged” Tree replies dryly.

“But I’ll be dead! I won’t make any money” Helen exclaims. She looks over her shoulder at the deputy and demands “What the hell do you think you are doing?”

i 095.jpeg

“Just getting you ready to be hanged” the deputy replies. Miss Barbara got hanged wearing that dress. That didn’t please the crowd.”

As the deputy pulled her top off her right breast Helen looked down at her exposed beast. She whimpered “You can’t do this to me!”

i 096.jpeg

“You were sentenced to be hanged naked” Sheriff Tree says. “The deputy is just doing his job.”

In moments, and much to the delight of the crowd, Helen stands naked but for her stockings and shoes. Tree cups his hand under her chin and lifts her head.

i 097.jpeg

“You don’t want to piss on your clothes while you hang, do you” Tree asks.
