' The advceites of the system of leas
ing ont the labar of ths penitentiary
eonvluts are principally t'joso who are
concerned in leaaing and making high
profits out of that labor. Beside
those, there are some cillrni who
think that the State gains money b
the nyatcm, saving themselves some
thing In the way of taxes. There is
no such saving, but the exact contrary.
""Voere it ia made an cbji ct to reform
convicts, each ons whosa term ex

ci a war intideut tn.r ia far out of t.i
rcamo. way. Bin fly atied, st the
battle ot Bull Kun Col. Ric, ihen a
yriT.a'e in the Second New Hump hi: e
Regiment, was shot through ths lungs.
Ha was carried near to Sudley Church,
where the surgeons were attending to
the wounded. The approach of the
enemy drove these away, leaving
hint, apparently dead, and lying under
a fenee. Two days after ths battle he
recovered consciousness. He could
not ' move; the 'flies-clustered about
the wound, and he 1V alone, auflr
ing and hopeless. Amoi Becsan and
his wife, returning from Eudley
Church, where they bad been aseio'
ing the wounded Yankee boys, caught
eight cf Lira. On discovering ibat he
was alive, the services of a doctor
was abked, but he said be had loo
many to attend to to give time to ao
hopelefs a cie. The good Bencona,
however, stood by him, bathed, ftd an
attended to him until in ten days he
was well enoogh to be taken from the
feuca and gain attention from the
.doctor, and eventually he recovered
and was sent to Libby prison. For
twenty-fivo years Mr. Rice thought of
those who hai saved him, but joining
an rxcniBioniet party to Gettytburg
fe-v weeks ago, he hastened on to B all
Run to aiik after hie deliverers. They
were still living, and His Kard to tell
whether their joy or his was greuti a

whon they bad found Lim they re
girded him rs an enerr.y whem they
might m-glecr, then came tbe thought
that tho Christian must do good, even
to h e enemy, and they gave him the
tendereat care. 1! Jore returning Col
Rica nekrd what he could do to testify
his gratitude. They declared nothing

much difllcnl'y, for the neighborhood
ia poor, they had rebuilt it, but a debt
of 1200 on it hung a heavy weight on
the congregation, and if he could help
a litis there his helpers would think
thenosslves amply paid. On reach'
ing Mb noma (Jot. Kica gave
a narrative of what the Benson's had
doro for him, and BBked if any would
join him in paying off (he church
debt. These Easterners, once so de-
aptaed In Old Virginia, responded
neartny, and In a lew days J-'ao waa
sent lo Dudley Ohurjh, the very creed
fcnd denomination of which Col. Rica
was entirely ignorant of; bntheeaya
he knew that a ohoroh that produced
such Obriat'ans was a good and true
church. And tbe Yankees of New
Hampshire that so promptly raised
ths money for a church in the South
is no credit duo to them? Here alio
ws have another Instance of Ibe happy
fiot that we are again one people, of

Jo Howard in Boston Globe: The
girls save their money for matinee
seat, xney crowd ev. ry theater in
which pretty women are displayed
npon the stage. They visit in thioni e
houses of entertainment in which
spectacular pieces are given, and af er
the performanca promenada the
ttreete, joirjing the great army going
np town and tbe other gr at army
going down town, the cea elees beat
ing of the human ti e npon the ahore
of t-ndeavor and of effort
I look in vain for the occupation of
the boys and entertainment of the
young men. I don't recall a bny wi'b
a hoop, a boy with a sled, a hoy with
a kite, in five year at the very
least. In the skating season thou
sands of boys and girls rf the panrer
classe) go to Central Park, and th?y
am met in cara acd on the streets
with their skatts s'uag over their
arms, but t-kating in Hew York is an
exceptional cccu rence. Some winters
we don't have au hour of it, other
winters we have a few days. Thus far
th s winter, nc t a moment.
Actually, I am atngeered to toll
what the boys do with therriaelve?.
We hava coteiiei for dancine, club3
for bisahall, but boys cannot dance all
the time, and bnnebjll is a pastime for
a eeaton only. I doti't think I have
spen a boy with a ronnd j icket or any
tort cf a coat without, a tail in ten
We haven't any boys.
They tre all young rranletp, dudes
They bfgi'i smoking when they are
7 years ot age, and tbey are pretty
well played cut by the time they are
18 and" 19. If I had smoked a cirar on
my way to school when I wds a boy I
would nave been thrashed when I en
tered the rjom, and I would have
hi en thtaihed when I got home, and
I would hive bsen sick at my stomach
between timps. But the schoolboys
now wear high hats, tails to their
crata, emoke cigareltes. and are
clothed well. There ia nothirg ln the
Eden Mmee that Is ba'f as fanny as
they are. Actually it seems 88 though
humanity was turned heels overhead.
Sitting in John Stetson's box the
other night daring trie performance of
1'rincm Ida, I Jooked through the
audience and remarked at the time
tbat there wera over 150 boys tht ra
not over ia years 01 age, all d raffled io
the bight of fashion, and every one cf
them went out, as a pro'esaioual
writer would ray, "betwepn every
act." took his dink and hia amok.
anJ going ont for thoea cheerful pur
poses iney actually coaidnt watt
until they got outside the door, but,
pulling cigarette case f om one nockm
and a match from the other, puss ing
the door struck the match, lighted the
c garotte and started forth UDon tha
process of health depletion.
Alter too theater l went around to
treorse Brown, bv the wav. haa
baen dead for two years, bat the
'prcperty lurvivee." and Ian verv
fond of going" there, aurrounded with
pictures, photographs, eld time play
bills, meuionstic reminiscences of
great men in jcu-naliem, great lights
on the stige, famous people in
literature and science. Ons can gat
an appetizing Welch rarebit, a go d
dish of terrapin, and a succulent pig's
foo', but the boys bless my heart it
wonia rnano you in to see them. Thr-v
abaolntely troop in fl ca after
the theaters. Each dresajd a Za

Mrs. Langtry wears a dress cut so low
behind aa to display the whole of ber
back, a very shapely and beautiful
back, wh'ch the turns to the audienca
as much at possible. We tolerate, we
permit, indeed we look for extrava

and wonderful achievements of that
grfat body which Mr. Seidl,
under the direction of Mr. KUn

laugh, they giggle, they talk
loud, tbey hold np over their faceB
buge fane, behind which tbwr puppy
attendants snuggle, aod whisper, and
join their glyglinp, snickering laugh

by people of humbler means unable
to purchase boxee, quits content with
comfortible stalls. Their insolence
parallels that of the nobles of Franca

It stems to me as if, little by little,
the race, so far as cities are concerned,
ii lesing iti grip. It is refining itself
to too small a point.
Do yon remember the atorv of the
lady who, floating over the sea in a
boat, woks suddenly to nod her mag
