"was sentenced to imprisonment for
life.
After a year in prison Stripling des
perate because he knew his wife and
two children were living in terrible
poverty managedto escape from
prison.
Taking his family he settled in
Danville, Va., under the name of Mor
ris and soon became a leading citi
zen. Then came the most amazing
part of his thrilling story, hunted fu
gitive though he was, he finally be
came the town's chief of police, an
office he held several years. Then
after 15 years' liberty he was recog
nized, re-captured and sent back to
prison.
The little sum of money he had
carefully saved during this 15 years
was spent for lawyers' fees and for
fighting in every possible way to gain
his freedom, but to no avail.
One day Bessie's mother took her
to the prison to see her daddy. It
happened that Governor Nat JE. Har
ris was inspecting the prison that
day. The little girl had heard much
about him and knew him by sight
She shpped from her mother's side
and ran to the governor. Slipping
her tiny hand in his she lisped:
"Please, Mr. Governor, won't you
let my daddy come home with me; I
wants him."
"Who are you child," asked the
governor.
"I'm just Bessie Stripling, my
daddy's in prison and I want him to '
come home with me."
A tense moment followed while the
governor thought deeply. Then he
answered:
"Run along home, girlie, I'll send
your daddy home soon."
And now the governor is going to
keep his promise and Bessie's father
will be with her for Christmas Day.

SEE WHAT KIDDIES WILL WEAR THIS SPRING!
BY BETTY BROWN
The very little girl may not be
bothering her head much about fash
ion, but Fashion is taking a world of
trouble about the very little girl. Her
spring bonnet, with many a frill upon
it, is occupying as much attention in
the big millinery studios these days
as the bonnet "mother" will wear in
spring.
Just to show "mother" and some
others what little women will wear
when spring comes, I sketched these
models of "pokes" and tams which
the milliners tell me are to be the
popular shapes for juvenile wear next
season. They have the approval, by
the way, of that best of style author
ities, the Fashion Art League of
America.
No. 1 Poke bonnet of rose color
hemp with narrow black velvet rib
bon festooned around the crown and
falling in quaint streamers over the
shoulder. "Pokes," so they tell me,
will be the "really, truly" fashion for
little folks in spring and late winter.
No. 2 White milan braid mounted
Tam fashion on a band of white satin
with two white satin pom poms nod

bobbed hair.
No. 3 The shoulder scarf is the

sensible mothers as an extra frill for
Sunday wear, not being at all prac-
