Animal Broke from Cage and Sought to Enter Apartment Where He Was at Prayer. (Special from United Press. Rome, March 1. An authoritative story from the Vatican today says that on last Friday, while the Pope was in prayer at the Loudres Shrine, a lioness, which had escaped from its cage in the Vatican, approached the entrance to the Shrine and was only prevented from entering by the guards who fin ally captured the beast at the point of rifles. The lioness was one of a pair pre sented to the. Vatican officials a year ago by King Menelek of Abysinia. It escaped during: the removal of its cage to a different part of the Vatican grounds, the Pope having ordered the removal. When the Pope was told of the dan ger that confronted him he laughted and said: "Even the beasts living in the Vatican must have absorbed some of its atmosphere and longed for free dom. But I don't believe they would have eaten me on the first day of Lent." Pope Pius is taking an enforced rest today on the advice of rr. Petacci. The Pope has a troublesome cold which has made his chronic bronchial affec tion much worse. Dr. Petacci says there is no occasion for apprehension but the fact that the Pope has been more or less indisposed for -months is causing considerable public uneasi nees.

I saw a large crowd of men walking down William St Of course the first thought that struck me was that the new foot bridge across the river was open. So I joined the crowd and wa'k ed down to the corner of William St. and Sterling St. But to my surprise every one was turning to the left. So in looking over where I thought sure the new foot bridge had ought to be by this time I saw the same o'd sign Street Closed. So I again jofned the crowd and walked into Drew Bros, fondly wine and liquor store and after ha ng a nice drink ok that famous Gibbons United States bonded whiskey that they are selling there for $1.00 a full quart and 10 cents a drink.

Sergt. Blaiisfleld, with patrolmen Cody, O'Neill, Ivers, Gerrity. C. Wheeler and Gregory made the raid. The police had information that the place was in reality a gambling house. All of the prisoners denied tnat there had been any card- playing in the place and Judge Foster found all of the accused not guilty, although he said there was strong suspicion that gambling had been going on there. White, who was charged with con ducting the place was one of the in formers on Lonnie Williams who was arrested! and fined some weeks ago for his connection with a club of col ored waiters on Bank street.

If most county Jails are "free schools of crime" then there is at least one state prison that ought to be called the university. The Kansas Peniten tiary has for years been a "boarding out prison" for Oklahoma whose terri torial government, since its beginning; has shipped its convicts across the border to the Kansas prison in Lan sing. In the old frontier days crimi nals were aplenty in the territory and the contract with Kansas was highly agreeable to the Oklahoma settlers who were glad to free the territory of its "bad men." The further th. y were sent the better, and what became of them no one cared. That was in the old days. When Oklahoma came of age last year and was entitled to put "state" , In front of her name the same system j was In use and for forty cents a day l a man, Kansas ran its criminal board- ing house. Stories of how things were carried on in Lansing had drifted across the border from time to time but nothing definite was known about the real state of affairs until last fall i when Oklahoma's new commissioner of charities, Kate Barnard, stirred up an investigation tnat oisciosea an a.mosi unbelievable state of affairs in the Kansas Prison. It costs 10:9 cents a day to feed the prisoners in Lansing and by working them hard and long in the mines, at contract labor and in the twine factory, the state has clear ed up a hundred thousand dollars, "the blackest and dirtiest cr me or modern states," says Miss Barnard The state makes about forty cents a day on each prisoner. It s an Interest ing question what becomes of all the coal mined by the prisoners. Three tons a day for each man in the mines means a total of about 1,000 tons a day. The state institutions are sup posed to consume all of this out put. Do they? In her report Oklahoma's charity commissioner tells about a day spent In the prison coal mines "creeping and crawling through bending passa?s where the props and supports of the roof sagged under the weight of the dirt ceiling." There the prisoners do their days work which consists in min ing three cars of coal. Three cars there must be and Miss Barnard tells about a seventeen year old youngster from Oklahoma locked up in a black dun geon and chained to the wall "because he was unable to extract from th? inky depths those three cars of coai! He told me with tears in his eyes that he had gotten out a little over two cars but that he just could not get out any more, that . the coal was so hard and he never had dug any be fore and he did not know how to dig it. One big. strapping prisoner told me that he did not find it hard to get out his cars of coal because he under stood the job. but that he felt sorry for the younger and weaker men. He said that sometimes when the guards wore not looking he helped these boys get their cars full of coal so that they wouldn't be put on bread and water diet and chained up to the walls of the dungeon!" Some say that the stories of the "water hole" and "the crib" are iso lated instances that ought not to count too much in the condemnation of the Kansas prison. But there Is a "water hole" and there is a "crib and there are unprintable immoralities all of which have their uses in subduing refactory men. Miss Barnard says that while going througn tne mine a coai begrimmed prisoner "shot swiftly, sil ently, and steathly from the darkness, grabbed me by the arm and whsptyred these words: 'See the water hole, girl, for God's sake see the water hole.' I said, what is the water hole? He an swered. 'Where they throw us in and pump water on us. It's terrible, see it.' Before 1 had time to as?K wnere to find the water hole the convict was gone the Superintendent was return ing." And the superintendent said, There is no water hole. is mere i a. letter from an Oklahoma prisoner to Miss Barnard quoted in her report says. After you nad come ana gone we fell into the old rut ana oy Satur day night the 'holes' were all full and the crib and water played no small part, so official displeasure at your frankly expressed opinions vented it self in retaliation upon helpless convicts." That there are dungeons there is no doubt. Miss Barnard saw fourteen of them ill ventilated and unHghted. with iron hooks in the wall from which hand cuffs hung. The convict lies on the floor during the n'ght and whn daylight struggles in through the little openings at the tops of the cells, he is hand cuffed to the wall where he stands during the day. "On the second day of my visit." says Miss Barnard "I went down to the dungeon and there found a sixteen year old Oklahoma boy shackled up to a sprocket in th" dun geon wall. Upon inquiry I found that he had been placed in this dungeon the night before, and that he had call ed for the Warden at 7 o'clock ir the morn'ng when they lifted him from the floor to shackle him to the wall. Now according: to the prison rules and regulations, this guard should report immediately to the Warden and the Warden call on this little boy. As a matter of fact the guard did not re port that the boy wanted to see ths Warden, and as late as 3 o'clock, in the afternoon I found him still chained to the wall." One of the first principles of the "new penology" is to keep children awav from the contaminating influ ences of older prisoners. It is not at all unusual to And youngsters In coun ty Jails herded in with confirmed wrong doers, but it -is unusual to find a state prison locking up children w'th grown men and women. And yet Miss Barnard finds that from August. 1905, to the present time sixty boys from Oklahoma under seventeen y-ars of age have been incarcerated in the Lan sing Jail. They are cleaning things up now in Kansas. A committee has drawn up recommendations for prison reform that will in all probability be adopted by the Legislature. The state is aroused and little Oklahoma can put another feather In her new state hood cap. "Perhaps Oklahoma is a Title fresh," writes a man from Kansas City. "She's doing things though; there's no question about that." MISSING STUDENT LOCATED AT DONE OF AN UNCLE Poker Players Are Fined at New Milford And a Poker Room Was Raided at Hartford Yeste day Also.

GAS FLAMED UP FIRE BELLS RUNG A gas pipe plugged with soap in the Yorkshire house at Wall and Water streets, caused the fire department to be called at 11:30 o'clock this morning. C. J. Conley. the proprietor in response to the complaint of one of the lodgers who smelled jas in his room started out to locate the leak with a lighted match.

FEWER LICENSES GRANTED IN 1908 This Attributed by Commis sioners to Activity of Pas tors' Association. The County Commissioners have is sued checks to the several towns in the county as part of the license mon ey obtained during the year as follows: Bridgeport. $9,827.10; Stamford, $16 0; Norwalk. $711; Danbury. $405; Darien, $180; County. $1,415.90. The commissioners have so far this year issued only 303 licenses, including both retail and wholesale, while last season at this time 327 licenses were issued, not including wholesale. This is due to the pressure brought to bear on the commissioners by the Ministers' Association of the city and the increased agitation against sa loons. It is the intention to keep down the licenses as much as possible. ENGINEER KILLED BY EXPLODING BOILER (Special from United Press.) Findlay. Ohio. March 1.

BABY'S TERRIBLE WATERY ECZEMA Itching Humor Broke Out on Tiny Mite's Cheeks Would Tear His Face Till Blood Streamed Down Unless Hands were Bandaged Spent $50 on Useless Treatments. CURED BY CUTICURA AT COST OF BUT $1.50 "When my little boy was two and a half months old he broke out on both cneeks with ec zema. It was the itchy, watery kind a n d w e had to keep his little hands wrapped up all the time, and if he would hap pen to get them uncovered he would claw his face till the blood streamed down on his clothing. We called in a physi cian at once, but he gave an ointment which was so severe that my babe would scream wuc.. it was put on. We changed doctors and medicines until we had spent fifty dol lars or more and baby was ge"mg worse. I was so worn out watcning . and caring for him night and day tnat I almost felt sure the disease was in curable. But finally reading of .the fod results of the Cuticura Remedies, determined to try them. I can truth fully say I was more than surprised, for I bought only a dollar and a hair s worth of the Cuticura Remedies (Cuticura Soap, Ointment and Puis), and they did more good than all my doctors medi cines I had tried, and m fact entirely cured him. I will send you a photo graph taken when he was fifteen months old and you can see his face is perfectly clear of the least spot or scar of any thing. If I ever have this trouble again . I will never think of doctoring but will send for the Cuticura Remedies at once. As it is, I would never think of using any other than Cuticura Soap for my babe.
