The pled piper of Hamlin, who piped
so divinely that all the rats in the town
followed: him as he walked through the
streets, hJi found a parallel In a life
prisoner at the Ohio penitentiary.
Down deep in tho ground Morgan
IfcSweeney, as he watches tho monoto
nous whir of tho whc'el3 and driving of
pistons on the big steam pump, 'while?
away his time by making friends with
the army of rodents (Which Invest ths
the little six by eight hole, where the
rest of hU life will be spent.
When thoy bear hl3 peculiar whistle
they come out from every hole and cor
ner until tho room Is filled with the
bright-eyed, grey furrcU little animals.
They run along, the pipes, clamber
over machinery and up tho Iron rods to
the table Where he Invariably feeds
them. So tame have they become that
they will perch on his shoulder, delve
Into his pockets and indulge In other
familiar antics to which Mack makes
Many of them have names and will
answer to them when they hear his pe
Tho pump room Is an old part of the
prison and swarms with rats. They
are fed thero several times a day and
all the rats in tho prison are rapidly
being concentrated at that one point.
McSweeney receives them all.
He allows thom to do as they please
and such playful little liberties as
chewing holes in his cap, dining off
his coat collar or carrying away a part
of his shoes he never resents. They
have become so free with him th?t he
Is obliged to tie his trousers at the bot
tom and to tie his coat sleeves shut to
prevent them from nesting In his
clothes. When feeding time comes
they Indulge in a miniature football
game, pulling and pushing each other
to get at the bread and milk, which Is
strewn around the place, and many a
hot fight takes place on the steam
tank or the stone flagging.
Morgan McSweeney, their protector,
is a queer character. He is tall and
strongly built, 'with grizzled beard and
long matted hair. All day lone, J?e
some medieval hermit he sits in nls
cave and plays with his rodent friends
To see him thus engaged no one would
Imagine that the kindly-eyed, genial
engineer had.' killed a man and for that
crime was doomed to fritter away his
life Inside prison walls. But those who
know his story Judge him gently and
say that he ought to be a free man
Morgan canie from Washington county
in Auznst of 1898. 'He had been con
victed of killing a young man In his
native place and In spite of the circum
stances surrounding the deed was giv
en almost tho full limit of the law.
He had a daughter whom he lovel
better than his own life. A young man
whom he had always trusted was court
ing her, but with deceit an'd treacherv
he took advantage of the confidence re
posed in him, seduced the daughter and
it is said to have ruined her. Morgan,
when he heard of It, promptly killed
him and for that received the sentence.
His daughter visits him from time to
time in his lonely den and does all that
she can to make life easy for him. But
his chief solace lies in his swarm of
rats, and on these he Is lavishing the
affection of his naturally kindly heart.
