NIEDERMEIER MORAL ZERO.
Character Study of Lender of Chicago
I (nrlinru nnnnlta.
Peter Nledermeler was an anachronism,
Ills Ideas of right and wrong belonged to
the stone age, says the Reader Magizinn
! for May. Mutder was more than a busl
jness deta-l with him. It was a bulsness
jpiinelple. lie Introduced tho Innovation
i of killing a man first nnd robbing him
I afterward. lie called it (with a cheery
I smile) "shooting the evidence."
He studied a crime as if It were a math
jomatieal problem. Before he excuted ths
carbarn affair, for instance, b studied
the budding nnd its envlorons. He drew
maps of the giound floor, of alles anu
i vacant lots of the neighborhood. Every
detail it was possible to learn in ndvancu
be learned when the last car e.omc in,
when the niotormen and conductors went
home, when the clerks In the office began
to cornt the money. This metheid of plan
ning a crime as if It were a campaign
made it possible for him to strike and dis
appear as If he bad melted Into air. IIu
boasted truthfully that he never In nil
life left a clue behind. There was a
, Napoleonic touch tei his character. Ho
I was a genius ot crime.
. IB- knew no such thing as mercy, con-
science or remorse, u ne wanteii a nrni l
l money he shot him down coolly, without
hurry or excitement, and took it. This
cold-bloodedness stamped his crimes with
the appearance of a ferocity that wai
aboriginal. But he had not the blood lust
that kills for the joy of killing. He took
no account nf the widows ho made, of
the children he orphaned, nf the fact that
the sudden discovery that he was a rob.
her and murderer drove his father insane,
wrecked h's mother's life, disgraced hit
brother. Ho was devoid of Imagination
utterly. No chosts came to his cell to
haunt him. Ills one regnt was that ha
had surrendered, that he had not died
TREADMILL AS A PUNISHMENT.
The tieadmill Is still in vogue at many
English prisons. Within the walls Is a
littlo building, I uilt of blue-gray stone,
standim.- .somewhat npait from the main
stiucture in a corner of the excrciso
ground nnd prison garden. On the choco
late colored door is painted in white let
ters the two words, "Wheel House." As
tho door opens tho dull, gt hiding sound
that we heard outside glows a littlo
louder and clearer. The door closes be
hind us with the inevitable clash nnd
click of the returning bolt. The Iioimo is
an apartment some jo feet long and 15
feet wide. On the left hand side ar the
wheels, four of them, in two tiers, divided
by a g.illety running the whole, length of
the house and lomniunli ating with thi

Oil the right hand side there Is another.
lower nnd shorter gallery, on which
Ma,is the wardor in charge,
are separated by a section of brick wall.
Each wheel is divided into compart
ments, cutting off each prisoner from tho
others. The object of this Is to prevent
the piisoners irom suing and hearing ono
another, although conversation in a low
V(ICI1 ,t,.ll0ll t n different key to that
f music of the wheel," Is perfectly
easy and intelligible.
