"DOPE" INTENDED FOR A HOUSE OF CORRECTION INMATE
These bottles were found concealed in the clothing of the wife of one of the
Holmesburg inmates when she came on visitors' day. Superintendent Patterson
declares he has much trouble preventing such liquids from being smuggled to
persons undar his care, as all sorts of ingenious methods are resorted to to get
' ' . . such articles past the guards.
"SPECK," HIS OWNER, HAYWOOD GAY, AND FRIENDS
"Speck" is shown just as he was caught after another one of his
expeditions, which have kept the home of Prof. A. T. Gay, at Swarth
more, in a commotion. The baby Shetland's specialty is getting
tangled up in lace curtains and ruining flower beds.
DRUGS CONCEALED UNDER POSTAGE STAMPS ON LETTER
This illustrates one of the most ingenious tricks ever tried to smuggle a pow
dered drug into the HouseVof Correction. A small quantity of "dope" has been
laid on the corner of the envelope and the stamps carefully pasted over it. To
the right is a coin intended for an inmate concealed in a piece of harmless- --
looking cardboard. ' -;- .. . i. v :r.
