Last Monday afternoon I took a

that I had often desired to visit. I
enjoyed a very pleasant outing in

That afternoon we called on Mrs.
Rice and her pretty sister Miss
Foley, natives of West Virginia.
Mr?. Rice is the youthful wife of
the Superintendent of the Pitts
burgh mines, and I think lier pret

After showing us her home, and

chaperone to the quarry.

reached the stockade. The squad
of convicts with the guards passed

in passing. We looked in at the
grating of the cells. Some were
resting on bunk-i, others at. tanks
of water washing their hands and
faces. The whole scene suggested
some vivid description of Victor
Hugo's, or a painting by Dore. We
were shown haunches of meal and
platters of bread, preparing for
supper. I suppose these mbera
ble creatures are profitable. Ray
