Jesse H. Pomeroy, known for al
most four decades as "the boy mur
derer" and held by an earlier genera
tion to be the most desperate criminal
abnormality of the age. is soon to
leave his cell for greater freedom in
the state prison at Charlestown. Mass.,
after having spent thirty-seven years
in solitary confinement.
Governor Foss, impressed by evi
dence submitted to him from many
sources of the great change in Tome
roy's character, has decided to allow
the life convict to enjoy many of tbe
liberties granted well behaved pris
oners. Governor Foss will never grant
Pomeroy a full pardnn. and it is gen
erally believed no other governor ever
will take such action, but to give the.
man who has inspired dread in the
hearts of even his keepers -ever since
the day when as a fourteen-year-old
boy he was thrust into a "punishment"
cell in the Clwrlestown prison any por
tion of the freedom enjoyed by tracta
ble convicts is considered evidence of

club of New York. Warren, who was
a playmate of Fomerny. recently made
an eloquent plea in behalf of his life
long friend, and Governor Foss In his
reply made known that Warren's pre
sentment of the facts had much to do
with his reaching his dwision.
But Ponieroy's greatest champion has
been his mother, now a sad faced,
white haired woman nenrlng her seven
tieth year. Although denied even the
right to see ber son and having to
accept the truth of the fact that he
was regarded all over the civilized
world as the' raot atrocious example
of a wanton murderer, his mother nev
er faltered in her faith in his innate
goodness nor forsook for a moment her
plan to gain for him bis freedom. At
each holiday seaon. on Thanksgiving
and Christmas, as well as on his own
birthday, she has gone to the prison
with a big basket of good things to
eat, and it is she also who has kept
him supplied with current magazines
Pomeroy killed two children, a boy
and a girl, after treating them with
barbaric cruelty. He inveigled other
children Into isolated sections, stripped
them of their clothing, tied them to
trees or upon boards and then beat
them until they were unconscious. 'He
delighted in sticking pins into their
unconscious forms and cut them deep
ly with a knife. When this Juvenile
monster, then fourteen years old. was
finally run down and captured he bare

saved him from the death penalty.

A'oon comes on slow and silent feet :
We see it move without a sound.
We see it march across the wheat
Ho fife's shrill note, no drum's dull beat i
Times noon upon its stately round.
The lazy droning of the milt.
The breeze that all the morn has played
Among thefloxvers on the hill.
The careless singing of the rill
Hush as though they were half afraid.
The bees that crooned their busy hum
With undertones of mellow mirth
Upon the flowers now lie, dumb.
Since mystic noon has slowly coma
To lift the shadows from the earth.
And all the fields and all the lands
And forest trees and whisp'ring grass
Rest as do men with folded hands.
For each one of them understands
That quiet rules till noon shall pass.
The spell is' cast upon the birds.
They trill no wayward, thoughtless tune;
As statues stand the solemn herds
While in a peace too deep for words
Goes marching past the hour of noon.
And now the noon, full-clad in gold.
Has marched in clinging silence on.
Has loosed the world from out its hold,
nd ever-nezv and ever-old
In all its songless state is gone.

Cardinal Richelieu while prime min

During his administration dueling be

but it was not obeyed. In order to
show that hewas in earnest in the
matter he made an example of the
Count de Bouteville. a member of the
exalted bouse of Montmorencl. who
had disobeyed the edict. The count
was beheaded. This had a wholesome
effect, but not sufficient to cr-idicata
There was at this time a young lieu
tenant in the army. Je:m de la Tour,
married to Yvon. a lovely young wom
an of twenty-four, who h;id borne him
two children. Jean was a poor sswerdj
man. and bis wife realized thai if com

she would probably l')-e him. 1;j
urged him to practice, and when lie
excused himself on the ground that he
had no one to fence '.v:tn she offered
to be his opponent.
Jean was much pleased at tbe idea,
and bis wife at once procured a suita
ble costume. She was about the same
height and weight a her husband, and
it was apparent from the first that phe
would make a very suitable adversury
for practice pnrioses. While De la
Tour was naturally sluggish in bis
movements, tnadame was remarkably
quick. He started in as her instructor,
but it war not lor.s before be was
worsted by bis pupil.
Bit Yvon knew very well that 6he
was not capable of bringing him rp
to a standard that would make him a
match for accomplished swordsmen.
Unknown to her husband, she took les
sons of tbe moat skillful fencing mas
ter to Paris, pledging him to keep the
matter a secret. He had good rea
son to observe bis pledge, for his pupil
soon became more proficient in bis art
The Inevitable was not long in com
ing. Jean de la Tour one day, during
drill, stepped in a puddle of water and
bespattered a comrade's newly polish
ed boots. Yvon was in her chamber,
engaged with her maternal duties,
when an offlcer called and asked for
her husband. She told ber caller that
Jean was not at home, and the officer
left with her a challenge for him from
Lieutenant Jacques de Fontayne to
mortal combat for having bespattered
his boots. Madame promised to deliver
the message, and the officer withdrew.
When De la Tour returned to his
quarters his wife asked him to drive
with ber to their country place near
Paris to assist ber In laying out some
changes she wished to make. Jean
consented, and the two drove to a
bouse and grounds near St. Cloud
Jean was surprised to see severui

from her own family wbeu she was
married. Yvon took her husband to a
room on tbe top etory. with but on
window near the celling, and, while
telling him of the change she proposed
to make in it, suddenly stepped into
the hall. Jean heard the key turned
in the door and his wife goiug down
the staircase. He was a prisoner.
In a few minutes Francois came up
and told his master that Mnie. de la
Tour desired that ber husband f.hould
remain in seclusion for a few days,
and ebe hoped be would not worry.
He would be given wbateverhe wish

the cause of bis imprisonment, was
Mme. de la Tour, returning to Paris,
sent word in the name of ber husband
that in view of tbe cardinal's order
he would only meet Lieutenant de
Fontayne on the promise of .nil con
cerned nrt to divulge the affair and
would insist on fighting masked.
A reply came consenting to the
terms end risking that De la Tour
would n.iiiii.- his serord in or"n-r that
the terms might be ngreed upon. In
reply to this word was n-?'H thfct De

would appear nt dd'.vn tbe i.est morn
ing at the vllhigo of V., a few milt-s
from Paris, re:tdy to fight De Fon
tayne with rapiers. The reason given
for this nnusual course was that De
la Tour was more afraid of losing bis
life by the cardinal's ax than De Foa
tayt.e's sword. An absent to this was
received by Mrr.e. de la Tour, and the
prHiminri ris were closed.
The next morning Yvon. dressed in
a suit of tiloth-s belonging to ber
hnsband. was driven to V.. arriving
on tbe ground Just as day was break
ing. She found not oDly De Fontayne,
but two seconds attending him.
"Pardon, monsieur," said one of
these men. "but It is not usual for af
fairs like this to be fought out alone
by the principals. Since you have no

at ber side and. drawing it, put herself
in a position of defense.
Now. Mme. de la Tour, though she
expected to meet skillful swordsmen,
knew that if she showed her own pro
ficiency she would give herself away,
for these men all knew that De la Tour
was a bungler. Being a woman, at
first hr nerve failed ber, and sbecame
very near losing her life by a single
thrust of her adversary. The thought
of her two innocent children, who
would be rendered motherless if she
did not control herself, made ber per
fectly cool. and. though she did not
what sbe was capable of doliig. she did
all that wa4 l ttmsary. She dreaded
killing her adversary or even wound
ing him. She therefore sent his weap
on flying, in the air.
De Fontayne picked it up with the
intention of continuing tbe Cghr, but
his second interfered, claiming that
it was not now bis part to fight. Br
this time Yvon's nerve was as steady
as a rock. Sbe pinked her adversary,
though unintentionally, then disarmed
him. The third man she served a she

sound of horses hoofs was heard, anil

others on horseback, all surrounded by
guards. At the Palais Cardinal they
were obliged to wait several hours be
fore the minister was ready to receive
them; then when they were admitted
to his presence by the thundercloud
on his face they saw their doom.
Yvan had worn her mask up to this
moment. The cardinal saw it and said
with icy sarcasm:
"Lieutenant de la Tour, you remind
me of tbe ostrich, which bides bis bead
In the sand to conceal Its body. Your
head will look better till I am through
with it uncovered. You will oblige me
by removing your mask."
"Pardon, your eminence," Interposed
De Fontayne, "I doubt if he ts De la

rapier; De la Tour is an indifferent
fencer. This one disarmed us all in
"We have need of such men," said
the cardinal to Yvon. "You would be
better employed in my service. 1 would
see you fence with Carrier. If you
can disarm Carrier you will save your

"If I unmask, your eminence, I can
"Not fight unmasked! Well, then,
wait till you have fought"
Carrier was one of those picked men
the cardinal kept about him for pro
tection and a marvel with tbe rapier.
The two were given foils, this being a
great advantage to Yvon, who dreaded
bloodshed. For aw hile it was a drawn
game between tbe t,wo. but finally, by
one of those quick moves that only a
gift nerve, so to speak, can accomplish.
Yvon placed the button of her foil
against ber adversary's heart.
"Enough!" cried the cardinal. "Vic
Yvou took off her face covering, and
in doing so her hair, which bad in so
many frays became unloosened, fell

At this point an attendant announc
