Miss Liuda GillM-rt. the woman who
wears the title .f '"The Convicts' Friend,"
anil whose unse fish efforts in behalf of the
criminal class l ave won for her the admir
ation and respect, of every philanthropic
minded citizen in the country, unaided and
alone hns for ye irs devoted herself and her
fortune to am iioratinij the condition of
the outlawed chisses. Many a criminal has
she brought ba k to his Ix-tter self and re
stored to the respectable society from which
lie had fallen.
So well ha-s she become known to these
outcast people, too, that her simple name is
a jmwer among them, and neither lxlt nor
bar is soeffectu.il a protection to a dwelling
as t he mere fact that she is one of its occu
pants. They reverence her as thev do
nothing else on earth or heaven, and it is
not strange that they do, for plunging
down into the depths as she has to effect
their rescue from their evil wavs, she has
seemed to then in her white "robes of a
spotless woman linod a ray from the divine
She was born in New Vork city, of a
family which has won considerable dis
tinction in the field of invent ion, the ele
vated railroads now sc .videly in use in our
large cities having originated with one of
her near relatives. At an early age she
was taken by herparents to Chicago, where
she was given an excellent education in the
convent of St. Mary's, -and she was but
seven years old when on a visit to the jail
of that city her sympathies were first ex
cited for the unhappy tenants of our large
prisons. She at once secured permission to
take to them books and little delicacies,
and as she grev older she continually, in
unobtrusive ways, ministered to their com
fort, until, on attaining to womanhood,
she devoted herself entirely to the work of
bettering their condition on a wider field

upon her own resources, she has placed
more than 50,(.0o volumes in various
prisons and rest red hundreds, even thou
ands, of crimitu Is to be respected and use

On oneoccasif n as she was passing along
Broadway she was accosted by a young
man whose face she did not at first remem
ber. Shepass;.(. bim. but she noticed that
he turned about and followed her. She
paused and asked his name, when she re
called him as an ex-convict whom she had
once known in prison. Jletold her that,
since his release he had tried to do honest
work, but as no ie would employ him when
they lenrned of his former life he had been
obliged to resort to his old criminal ways
for a livelihood, lie had. he said, just com
mitted a robber . but the sight of her had
brought back b - desire for an honest life,
and he wished t i restore his plunder.
She went, ti, t he man who had been
robbed with hi property, which was of
the value of $10 . He was glad to get ir,
but at first was ibdurate in insisting that
the criminal sho i!d lie punished. At last,
however, he yielded to her quest ions, if he
would not think if hard should one of his
own sons be thus treated when coming
back to riurht ways like the returning
prodigal; and he not only forgave the con
vict, but added $."0 to n like amount of
Miss Gilbert's o-vti funds with which she
proposed to set t he penitent thief in a small
cigar business. He has been prosperous,
and now, with a wife and two intercstinc
children, he is respected and trusted by all
who know him.

Another interesting case is that of a
manly young feilow for whom she secured
work after he had served a term in prison
for burglary. She sent hitn toaf ' iiierin

but before he asked her to do .i he wrote
to Miss Gilbert, asking if he. should not
disclose his history. She told him to doso.
and they were married with the full a;
proval of tiie young girl's parents, lie
was prosperous, anil is now a prominent
member of a Baptist church in the neigh
borhood. Her chief inst-umcnt in dealing with the
criminal is kindness. With the most hard
ened she never uses a harsh word, and so
potent has been her method of treatment,
that she approaches the worst cases with
absolute fearles- ness. An instance of her
power and hers -lf possession was given in
188i when her house in New Vork was en
tered by a burglar. At dead of night she
was awakened 1 y u noise in her chamber,
and raising herself upon her elbow she saw
a stalwart man ransacking her bureau
drawer. lie was in t he act of appropriat
ing a valuable gold watch, when, rising
from her lied and approaching him noise
lessly, she laid her hand upon his shoulder,
saying: '"Do yon know t hat you are robbing
5-our best friend ' I am Linda (iiltiert."
The man crou died upon the floor speech
less, while she struck a light, and, point
ing to a chair, told him to lie seated. Then
she drew from him his story. He was, he
said, not an habitual criminal, but an hon
est laborer out i t work, and he had resort
ed to crime to feed a starving wife and
children. Not t nest inning his statement,
she led him nois-'lcssly down to the kitchen
for her father and another gentleman
were asleep in the house and there she
filled for him a basket of provisions, and
adding to it a five dollar greenback, told
him to come to her again if he should fail
to soon secure .vork. Thus she dismissed
him to u bctte- life. New York Adver

The Spaniards are the most expert
smokers in the vorld. A Spaniard takes a
heavy pull at his cigarette, inhales it,
takes up a wine skin or wine bottle, pours
a half pint ilov. n his throat, holding the
vessel a foot from his mouth and not spill
ing a drop, and then wit h a sigh of satis
faction closes 1 is eyes and exhales the
smoke from his nose and mouth in clouds.
He will also ii.bale the smoke, converse
for a few minutes in a natural manner, and
then blow out the smoke. EI Paso Tribune.
