PTmuurc In ttie Heaven.
There is a-satisfaction in learning the
names and positioixs of the stars that
does not belong to the 6tudy of the
planets. The stars apparently never
change bo far as their position relative
to each other is concerned. The planets
re always moving, and to th($e who do
not watch the heavens 'with particular
attention it is a cause of surprise very
often to find a "new star" adorning a
certain section of the heavens. If, how
ever, this newcomer be carefully ob
served from night to night, it will be
found to change its distance from the
fixed stars, and the observer will discover
that it is a planet and at liberty to wan
der about from place to place under the
eole condition that it beys certain rules
ef motion. When the bright stars that
grace the heavens become familiar to ob
servers, they will know just what to ex
pect on each succeeding season. New
BEHIND THE BARS.
A Jollet Lifer Pardoned After 24 Yearn'
'Imprisonnn nt for the term of
your natural life" were the ominous
words pronounced by the circuit
judge of Stephtnson county at Free
port on Decern! er 15, 1868, when the
court sentenced Teter Zowar to the
Joliet prison for a life term, convict
ed of the crime of killing a woman
said to have 1 een his sweetheart.
After having served 24 years and
nine months behind the bars Zowar
has been restore I to his liberty again.
This is not the finish of a natural
life sentence, but it is as though
Zowar had origi lallt received a svn
tenee of 47 years the life term hav
ing been reduced by commutation to
that sentence bv the governor.
Zowar has been in prison longer
than any other convict ever in con
finement in this state, nearly a quar
ter of a century, while no other con
vict has ever ren ained in continuous
confinement longer than 20 years.
He has seen mo -e than 20,000 new
convicts arrive, terve their terms and
depart since the big doors first shut
him in. He has seen over a hundred
other convicts with life sentences
come since he did, the majority of
whom have gone and left him be
hind some wer? pardoned after a
few years' scrvic others had their
sentences cut to shorter terms,
while a few carried out the mandate
of the court by s.-rving the life term
and dying in prism.
CliHnceN Tlia Are Wrought.
When Zowar entered upou his long
term he was a young man in robust
health, a rosy-cheeked German, and
for over 20 years labored hard and
faithfully at his prison task, until
finally the long confinement began to
tell upon him, ard his health broke
down and for the past few years he
has been but a wreck in body and
mind. When it finally became ap
parent that the old convict could
hardly live through another winter
in the prison the governor was ap
pealed to, and resulted in the com
mutation of his life term to one of 47
years, as noted. Zowar is now
about a years old, but the prison
taint and pallor fiom long years in a
stone cell hayc left their mark upon
him, and he loo-cs 20 years older.
The friends of his youth are all dead
and gone, anil where he will find a
haven of rest for his old age is not
