Unusual Request by Opium
Smuggler Judge Maxey
A year and a day in lederal prison is
preferable to 10 months in the Kl Paso
county jail, according to Charlie John
son, a negro.
The statement has been causing con
siderable comment about the streets
Johnson asked that he be sentenced
to serve one year and one day in the
federal prison at Fort Leavenworth,
Kan., instead of 10 months in the coun
ty jail here. This was done upon tho
request of the prisoner, who told judg:
Maxey that he could not stand the con
I finement in the county jail and request
I ed that his sentence be increased that
j he might go to the penitentiary, where
i hp will have more freedom.
As it is necessary to make the sen
tence longer than one year before a
person may be sent to the federal
prison, Johnson's sentence after convic
tion in federal court on a charge of
opium smuggling, was fixed at one yeai
and one day.

A young woman hurried out of one
of the apartments to greet Howard.
She was a vivacious hrunette of me
dium height, intelligent looking, with
good features and fine teeth. It was
i?ot a doll face, hut the face of a
woman who had experienced early the
nard knocks of the world, yet in
whom adversity had not succeeded in
wholly subduing a naturally buoyant,
amiable disposition. There was de
termination in the lines above her
mouth. It was a face full of character,
the face of a woman who by sheer
dint of dogged perseverance might ac
complish any task she cared to set
herself. A smile of welcome gleamed
in her eyes as she inquired, ejerly:

"Well, dear, anything doing?"
Howard shook his head for all re
sponse and a look of disappointment
crossed the young wife's face.
"Say, that's tough, ain't it?" she
exclaimed. "The janitor was here
again for the rent. He says they'll
serve us with a dispossess. I told him
to chase himself, I was that mad."
Annie's vocabulary was emphatic,
rather than choice. Entirely, without
education, she made no pretense at
being what she wasnot and therein
perhaps lay her chief charm. As
Howard stooped to kiss her, she said
"You've been drinking again, How
ard. You promised me 3'ou wouldn't."
The young man made no reply.
With an impatient gesture he passed
on into the flat and flung himself
down in a chair in the dining room.
From the adjoining .kitchen came a 1
welcome odor of cooking.
"Dinner ready?" he demanded. "I'm

sat awaiting his meal was the largest
room in a flat which boasted of "five
and bath." There was a bedroom of
equally diminutive proportions and a
parlor with wall paper so loud that it
talked. There was scarcely enough
room to swing a cat around. The

were carpetless. Yet it showed the
care of a good housekeeper. Floors
and windows were clean, the cover on
the table spotless. The furnishings
were as meager as they were ingen
ious. With their slender purse they
had been able to purchase only the
bare necessities a bed, a chair or
two, a dining room table, a few kitch
en utensils. When they wanted to sit
in the parlor they had to carry a
chair from the dining room; when
meal times came the chairs had to
travel back again. A soap box turned
upside down and neatly covered with
chintz did duty as a dresser in the
bedroom, and with a few photographs
and tacks they had managed to im
part an aesthetic appearance to the
parlor. This place cost the huge sum
of $25 a month. It might just as well
have cost $100 for all Howard's ability
to pay it. The past month's rent was
long overdue and the janitor looked
more insolent every day. But they
did not care. They were young and
life was still before them.
Presently Annie came in carrying
a steaming dish of stew, which she
laid on the table. As she helped How
ard to a plate full she said: "So you
had no luck again this morning?"
Howard was too busy eating to an
swer. As he gulped down a huge piece
of bread, he growled:
"Nothing, as usual same old story,
Annie sighed. She had been given
this answer so often that it would
have surprised her to hear anything
else. It meant that their hard hand-to-mouth
struggle must go on. She
said nothing. What was the use? It
would never do to discourage How-
ard. She tried to make light of it
"Of course it isn't easy, I quite
understand that Never mind, dear.
Something will turn up soon. Where
did you go? Whom did you see? Why
didn't you let drink alone when you
promised me you would?"
"That was Coxe's fault," blurted
out Howard, always ready to blame
others for his own shortcomings.
"You remember Coxe! He was at !
Yale when I was. A big, fair fellow
with blue eyes. He pulled stroke in
the 'varsity boat race, you remem
ber?" "I think I do," replied his wife, in
differently, as she helped him to more
stew. "What did he want? What's
he doing in New York?"
"He's got a fine place in a broker's
office in Wall street. I felt ashamed
to let him see me low down like this.
He said that I could make a good deal
of money if only I had a little capital.
He knows everything going on in
Wall street If I went in with him I'd
be on Easy street"
"How much would it require?"
"Two thousand dollars."
The young wife gave a sigh as sbA
"I'm afraid that's a day dream. Only
your father could give you such an,
amount and you wouldn't go to him,,
"Not if we hadn't another crust ia
the house," snapped Howard savage
ly. "You don't want me to, do you?"
he asked looking up at her quickly.
"No, dear," she answered caimiyi
"I have certainly no wish that you
should humble yourself. At the same
time I am not selfish enough to want
to stand in the way of your future.
Your father and stepmother hate me,
I know that I am the cause of your
separation from your folks. No doubt
your father would be very willing to
help you if you would consent ta
Howard laughed as he replied:
"Well, if that's the price for the
$2,000 I guess I'll "go without it I
