the Governor has called a special meeting

instead of a misdemeanor, Mr. Odom, the

Too Handy With a Pen.
Ex-Senator Thomas J. Creamer tells a good
story of the palmy days when the Hon. Faddy
Ilurns was a Deputy Sheriff. He was fre
quently detailed to take convicted piisoners to
Sing Sing prison. One day as he approached
the entrance a mild-mannered prisoner held
out a pair of small white hands chained to
gether with handcuffs.
" Sheriff," he said in pitiful accents, " look
at those hands. They will be no good In the
quarries. I'm here for 10 years. It'll kill me
to go into the quarries. You might as well
put a titled lady in a laundry."
"Ah, be alsy, now," stid Paddy. " You
talk so much that you twisht the eye of me."
"I've a $100 bill in my vest pocket,
"Whisper, whisper," broke in Faddy with
"It's my last $too," the prisoner continued
In a low tone, "and it's yours if you'll only
keen me out of the quarries."
"What can ye do now?" Paddy inquired.
"Any light work," was the reply, "Can't
you get me something easy!"
"Well now I don't know. Are ye
handy wid a pin?"
"Handy with a pen?" repeated the captive
with sudden energy. "Heavens, man, I'm
too handy. That's what I'm here for." New
