A distinguished writer has called at

Home Ties of Hebrews.
The Hebrews are universally ad
mired for the affections which adorn
their domes-tic life. The foundation of
the Jewish faith was laid in the sanc
tity of domestic affection and purity.
The bible Hebrew never made the mis
take of separating the home and the
church. His piety nestled 'neath the
shelter of two trutfes one was the
dwelling where he lived with his wife
and children in some corner of the
Holy Land and in the fear of his fath
er's God. According to the Jewish
imagination the Divine Presence was
the atmosphere of that house and gave
it an indescribable beauty. His wife
was a vine God's hand had planted
and his children as olive trees around
his table. "We need not wonder that
these synagogue Jews have given to
the world a greater number of great
men than any other race in the pro
portion to their numbers.
The German empire is great because
German homes are good, because the
German mothers are industrious, eco
nomical, honest and virtuous.
Great Britain is great because it has
model homes, because British mothers
are intelligent and pious. In the spe
cial display of tne Victorian jubilee
nothing was so beautiful or so glori
ous as the queen kneeling at the altar,
taking communion, throwing her arms

other words, the state .constitution will
have to be amended before the initia

Senator Robert P. Bass is the Repub
lican nominee, while Clarence E. Carr
is tht Democratic candidate. Both are
fgood men, and personally there would
be small choice, the decision of the
voters being wholly on tne platform,

Democrats have always made against
domination of the state by the Boston

was passedthat all persons convicted of
crimes for which the imprisonment is
one year or less should serve their time
in these jails.
In our jail at Montpelier the average
numTDer of prisoners has been about 35.
At first no one was willing to employ
them. The first trial made was to use
a small gang to cut hushes and do other
work on property owned by the snenii.
Those whose term of sentence was short
est were employed and the state was
given 50 cents per day for their labor.
The trial had poor success. The men
had no interest in their work and hard

Finally we hit upon the idea of giving
the men a part of their earnings and
trying rthe honor system. For three
years the state has taken $1 per day
for the service of these men and has
allowed them the balance of what they
earned. - The average wage paid has
been $1.75 which gives each man 75
cents for his own use. The prisoners
go to their work unguarded being placed
entirely on their honor. During the
time over 700 different men have been
sent . out to work and only two have
attempted to escape. One was captured

The real benefit has come from the
fact that men have had a ehance to
