GOVERNOR WHO
TRUSTS CONVICTS
In tho "Interesting People" de
partment of tho January American
Magazine appears an articlo about
Governor Oswald West of Oregon,
who likes to trust men. He let a
life term murderor out of prison
long enough to earn money to pay
off a mortgago on his father-in-law's
home, tho money having been spent
to hlro lawyers to defend him. Fol- (
lowing is an extract: i
"Out In Oregon there Is a governor
who believes In men oven though
they have sinned ngalnst socloty and
havo been committed to the keeping
of tho penal Institutions of tho state
Oswald West believes in men to
such nn extent that sixty-two per
cent of the prisoners serving time in
the Oregon Stoto ponitontlary aro
out on honor, as It Is called. A con
siderable number of theso aro earn
ing an honest living outsldo the pri
son walls, entirely Independent of
any prison discipline or oversight
The rest are trusties working for tho
State at other public institutions, or
building roads without being guard
ed frequently ono or two hundred
miles nway from tho prison, and of
ten In thinly settled portions of tho
country where escapo would be com
paratively easy. And yet fewer pri
soners try to get away under this
system than in tho old days when
tho guards stood by armed with re
peating Winchesters.
"Ono of Governor West's first ex
periences In trusting men wns to re
leaso temporarily a murderer serv
ing n life sentence, simply on his
word of honor, In order that he may
earn sulllclent money to pay off the
Indebtedness on his father-in-law's
homo which had been mortgaged In
order to raise money for his legal
defense. About the middlo of last
January tho man reappeared at the
penitentiary after an nbsenco of
nearly a year. Tm back,' ho said to
tho warden. "The mortgage Is paid.'
"When tho present executive of
Oregon ennio Into otllco tho Stato
penitentiary had a reputation that
was anything but enviable. Discip
line wns administered through meth
ods that had long been outlawed in
many penal Institutions
"Over one-third of tho prleoners I
were unprovided with work of any ,
kind. Gunrds with loaded rllles watch ,
ed every foot of the prison property
and went with each group of prison- i
ers that wns sent outsldo tho walls. I
"Governor West has changed all ,
this. Ho has put every ablo bodied :
man to work. Ho has removed most i
of tho guards. Over 200 of the 450 '
men now under sentenco nt tho Sa- j
lorn Institution nro outsldo tho walls
dally without guard of any kind,
trusted to return nt night and honor '
bound to do a fair day's work. '
"When thoy betray his trust, ns
occasionally happens, ho has been
known to lead tho posso that under- (
took 'trusty,' whom ho ran down af
ter a hard chase, said to him ns ho
took him Into custody: "Who nro
you, tho sheriff? 'No,' replied tho ox-
ocutlvo Tin tho man to whom you
lied.'"
8AYS COLUMBUS. OHIO, IS .
LIKE A COUNTRY GIRL !
IN A VELVET GOWN !
l
In tho January American Mnga- I
zliio Edna Ferber writes another Em- I
nin McChesnoy story entitled "Catch- !
Ing Up With Christmas." Emma Me- j
Chesney is a traveling saleswoman
selling Featherlodm pettlcov "o
lowing Is n parogrnph from tho story
about Columbus, Ohio:
"Columbus, Ohio, wns a Feather
loom town. Emma McChesnoy had
a fondiiess for It, with Its half rus
tic, half metropolitan air. Somotlmes
sbo likened it to a country girl In
a velvet gown, and somotlmes to a
city girl in white muslin and blue
sash."
A FELLOW FF.ELING
"I am glad," said tho struggling
author, ' that our friend, Dustln
Stax, has been made to suffer as I
havo dono."
"In what way?"
"He wroto a neat Ilttlo chock and
the campaign troasuror told him that
his contribution, though possessing 1
merit, wos declined with thanks." I

SELLING YOURSELF
AN AUTOMOBILE
James Montgomery Flagg writes
an amusing sketch about buying an
automobile In the January American
Magazine. Following Is an extract:
"You and Polly aro given a demon
stration. "The psychology of the trade start
psyching at the moment you take
your seat In the car. The Instant
the wheels turn you are a gonor!
"You are now the best salesman
they havol You sell yourself tho carl
You root for that car as It It were
something you had Invented your
self. "An awful clattering underneath
ydur feet, that In' later years of ex
perience would clearly Indlcato fraz
zled bearings, you are now eager to
have explained away as nothing but
the sweet purr of perfect mechanism
"You sit on th edge of tho Beat! L
nerves taut, Inwardly challenging
these men to say anything nasty II
about their own goods. Their own' li
Yours! n
"You clutch tho leather arm rests I
with the fierce Joy of ownership, ftn(i J
cry Gee some boat- I
"We could a-don that hill just as I
easy: on high) grins the wicked de- i
monstrator as he looks around for ji
your approval. vj "p
"When can I havo It? you hiss, j
hardly recognizing your own voice, I
"By the way, says the salesman,
doubtfully, to th wicked demonstra
tor, this car Isn't sold, Is It?
"Oh no It's all right I was think
ing of that 1911 runabout of John
son'sno, It's alt right) f
"You nearly swallowed your Ad- I
am's apple." 1
W. R. Fox, 195 W. Washington
street, Noblesvillo, Ind., says: "Af
ter suffering many months with kid
ney trouble, after trying other reme
dies and prescriptions, I purchased a
box of Foley Kldnoy Pills, which not
only did mo mora good than any oth
er remedies I evor used, but hare
positively set my kidneys right. Oth.
er members of my family have used
them with similar results." Tako at
