THE ST. JOHNSBURY CALEDONIAN, JANUARY 21, 1898.
7. INDIA'S CONVICT SYSTEM. Prisoners Begin their Term u Slave and are Advanced at Pitted Until They Become Free, but Without Civil Rights. Colonel Temple, in an uddress at the Garrison sports at Port Blair in the An amans, a group of islands in the Bay of Bengal, a penal settlement for criminals, speaking on the occasion of releasing 400 convicts, gave an interesting account of India's convict system, says the English man. From the best estimates at hand, says Colonel Temple, we may take it that the permanent convict strength of the Port Blnir settlement may be placed at about 12,000, of whom about 800 are women, and the rule is that only lite convicts are sent from India, and life and term convicts from Burmah. The people we receive, therefore, are the murderers who have for some reason escaped the death penalty and the perpetrators of the most heinous offences against the person and property, the men of brutal violence, the higewaymen, the robbers, the habitual thieves and receivers of stolen goods, the worst of the swindlers, forgers, cheats, coiners and such like; in fact, the most unrestrained temperaments of a continent. The convict comes to us a creature who, by his life or his acts, has shown himself to be so unfitted for human society that he has been cast out of it for life or for a long term of years. Receiving him thus we first sub ject him for six months to a most severe discipline hard, rigid, uncompromising. We teach him what it is like to be forced to bend his uncontrolled nature to an iron yoke of a regime, not of hard toil, but of soul-crushing monotony. From the stern cellular jail he is next transferred to one of the association jails to the comparative blessing ol hard labor in company with others, but still under strict discipline. He works and feeds with others in gangs, and there is a certain variety in the tasks demanded, but he still sleeps in his separate cell. Here he stays lor a year and a half, and then tor the next three years he is a slave, as that word is ordinarily under stoodlocked up with the other slaves in the barracks by night, but working in the open air at any kind of task that the needs of the settlement may require of him, according to his capacity an un paid, unrewarded laborer, but well-fed, housed, clothed and cared for, and always under watch and guard. During the following three years he is still a labor ing convict, but the severity of his life is eased down a little for him. He is now eligible for the petty posts of supervision and for the less irksome and less slavelike forms of labor, and be gets a little a very little allowance to buy a few small luxuries or to place in the savings bank against his future necessities. Having thus served ten long probationary years, he becomes eligible, if he has thecapacity, to take a ticket-of leave and become whatislocally known as a self-supporter. The convict is now in a sense "tree." He earns his living in his own chosen way; he lives in a village in his own house; he farms a little land; he keeps cattle; be can move about un watched; he can send lor his wife and children, or, the more frequent course, he can marry a convict woman who under her own reg ulations is eligible for marriage; be can thus become paterfamilias, with a little hoard of his own earning, and differing outwatdly in no way Irom the ordinary villager or properly conducted member of human society. In reality, however, he differs so greatly that he misses all those things that "free" men prize so highly. He has no civil rights under the ordinary law, and all the affairs of bis life are dealt with by the executive authority ; be must live where he is told ; and gen erally conduct his life as he is told ; he may move about beyond his village and his fields by permission only; he cannot leave the settlement; he may not be idle under pain of a forced return to ordinary convict labor. In this state he remains ten or fifteen years, according to the crimes that have sent him there, until the happy day comes when the order for ab solute release is placed in his hands and he goes free a other men. As in the other portions of his life in transportation, even in the condition of self-support, the convict passes through two distinct stages. In the first stage he is assisted in the beginning with house, food and tools, and then by ex emption from rent, taxes, lees and other cesses payable by the free toward the common benefit. In the second stage he receives no assistance whatever, but finds the whole of his means of livelihood and is charged with every public pay ment which would be exacted from him in his own country. The women are dealt with on the same lines, but more gently, as becomes the gentler sex. For the first three years the convict woman works in the female jail as a mere slave, fed, housed, clothed and cared for. Then tor two years she is treated to the same sort of easing down from severity as is granted to the men, and after a total of five years she is eli gible for marriage and domestic service. Assuming that she marries, she joins her huspund in his village, where she leads the ordinary life of an Indian woman, but subject to the same disabilities as her v.u.il-and, until she has completed fifteen years ti transportation, when she may go lre with him, wheresoever he may go. "he World's Largest Diamond. The largest diamond of South Africa, however, was not found at Kimberley, but at Jagersfonte, in the Orange Free state. This is said to be "the largest and most valuable diamond in the world." Its gross weightis969V4carats, the color is blue-white, and the quality very fine. "Its value cannot possibly be estimated;" for it must be remembered that the diamonds ot ordinary size have a recognized market value of from $7 to $100 a carat, according to fineness, quality, color, etc., when the stone goes above 100 carats its price is enormously enhanced with each additional carat. The length of this literally priceless jewel is about 2Va inches, its greatest width about two inches, the extreme girth in width about 6 inches, and in length about 694 inchss. Two more places of great interest we must visit. One is the native compound, where the workmen are kept for three months at a time in a voluntary prison, not allowed to go out or in, or to com municate with their friends. Even the top of the great compound Is covered with a wire netting, lest some workman throw out an innocent-looking potato studded with diamonds to a friend be yond the walls. When they are dis charged from their three months' servi tude they are searched and stripped and subjected to all sorts of nameless indigni ties, lest in their clothes or under their skin a brilliant be concealed. On one swarthy-skinned African a suspicious sore wus once discovered. The doc tor thought he ought to lance the wound, and there found three diamdnds! The Kaffir had actually cut out a flap of skin, dug out the flesh of his leg and con cealed therein the diamonds, putting the skin back in its place; but instead of healing, the wound had festered, and so discovered the living diamond mine. Thousands of natives are often gath ered in a single compound, and they come Irom all parts of Africa Kaffirs, Basutos, Bechuanas, Fingoes and half a dozen other tribes. Most of them are "raw heathen," and no better opportu nity for missionary work can be imagined than is here found. I am glad to say that many missionaries are taking ad vantage of it both here and in Johannes burg, and services are regularly held every Sunday, ani frequently on week days. There are the men who blast and dig and hoist to daylight the blue ground. They stand at the beginning of the dia mone industry, so to speak. At the other end, in the office of the De Beers company, we find the finished product the dia monds, sorted and sized and graded, waiting for shipment. A Humorous Parson. Rev. Arthur St. Johns, the new rector of Christ church, Navy Yard, has a fund of wit and humor vouchsafed to few men who wear the cloth, says the Washing ton Post. Like his father, the late Bishop Johns, he is very much of a man, and he enjoys the recreations of life as much as a layman. He is a fine shot and invari ably takes bis annual vacation when the quail are flying, and goes to North Caro lina to enjoy the sport. When he was in chargeof Christ church atRockville, Md., he owned a cow, and it was a daily oc currence to see Mr. Johns goingjdown the main street of the village, swinging his trusty milk pail, on his way to and fro from milking that cow. He worked in bis garden, too, and still attended to the spiritual needs of his flock with great success, and a power that received grate ful recognition everywhere. One day a couple of years ago a former parishioner of Mr. Johns in Bockville met him on the street in this city and asked him what he was doing in town. "I've been to see an oculist, "he replied. "An oculist?" repeated the other. "Why, your eyes are not affected, are tbey?" "Oh, yes,.' he replied seriously. "I've hurt them doing fancy work, such as working in the turnip patch, milking cows and the like." In making some calls one afternoon Mr. Johns visited the house of a lady who had interested herself in teaching some tiny tots their catechism. Two of the little girls happened to be there, and the teacher proudly proceeded to put them through their lessons for the minister. A sweet little bundle of blue eyes and tousled hair and four years was asked who was the first man. "Ad'm," she replied promptly. "Who made him" "Dawd," was the reverent response. "What did God make bim out of?" "The tlay of the earth." The teacher triumphantly glanced at Mr. Johns and continued. "Who wus the first woman?" she queried. "Eve." "And who made Eve?" "Dawd," again answered the child. "And what was Eve made of?" The baby pondered for a few moments. Her little eyelids dropped and her head went lower. She was evidently strug gling deeply. Then suddenly she bright ened and looked up with confidence. "A wibbon," she said with much ani mation. "See how femininity sticks out," re marked Mr. Johns in a smiling aside to the teacher. "The poor little thing evi dently thinks it was remnant day." This bright saying was, of course, re peated, and some ot the ultra-pious peo ple raised their eyes and declared it was outrageous lor a minister to say such a thing. Invasion of Washington. "The last glimmer of twilight was fad ing away when (after the battle of Bladensburg, two miles distant from Washington) into the well-nigh deserted city rode the redoubtable Cockburn at the head of his band of marauders," writes Clifford Howard in the July Ladies' Home Journal, of the invasion and burning ot our national capital by the British forces under Admiral Cock burn in August, 1814. "Elated at their decisive victory over a force nearly twice as large as their own, and thirsting for spoils, the red-coated soldiers marched triumphantly toward the capitol. Dis charging their firearms at the windows the soldiers burst in the doors and with a shout of triumph carried their leader to the speaker's chair, from which, with mock gravity, he put the question: "Shall this harbor ot the Yankee democ racy be burned?" A yell of affirmation rang through the hall and without fur ther preliminaries papers and other combustibles were piled under the desks and set on fire. In a few minutes this noble edifice, that had been in course of construction more than twenty years, and containing the library of congress and vast quantities of official documents of great historical value was destroyed. "Now, thoroughly aroused to their work of plunder, a howling crowd of the desperate marauders hurried to the White House in the hope, perchance, of capturing the President and his wile. Finding the house locked and deserted they battered down the doors, and con soling themselves for the loss of their distinguished captives by a ruthless de struction of the lurniture'they raided the larder and regaled themselves with a hastily prepared feast in the state dining room. Then, destroying and mutilating whatever they could readily lay their hands on, they concluded their visit by setting fire to the home ol the president. Numerous other public and private buildings were destroyed by fire." To go to Klondike requires nerve and lots of it.

He replied, "I have no secret, madam, but hard work." Dr. Arnold says: "The difference between one man and another (that is, between a man who makes a fortune, and the man who does not) is not so much in talent as in energy." "Nothing," says Reynolds, "is denied well-directed labor; and nothing is to be obtained without it." "Excel lence in any department," says Dr. John son, "can now be obtained by the labor of a lifetime, but is not to be obtained at a lesser price." "There is but one method," says Sydney Smith, "and that is hard labor; and the man who will not pay the price for distinction had better at once dedicate himself to the pursuit of the fox." "Nothing," says Mirabeau, "is impossible to the man who will." Sir Isaac Newton, one of the greatest men the world ever saw, when asked by what means he had worked out his ex traordinary discovery, modestly replied : "By always thinking of them." To Dr. Bentley he said: "It I have done the public any service, it is due to 'nothing but patient industry and thought." Nelson once said : "I owe all my success in life to having been always a quarter of an hour before my time." Kelper, the great philosopher, when speaking of bis studies and his progress, said : "Diligent thought on these things was the occa sion of still further thinking, until at last I brooded with the whole energy of my mind upon this subject."

No Need of Looking Shabby Even Though Times are Hard. Easy to Make Old downs and Suits Look Like New When One Kpows How. It is astonishing how much can be made from seemingly useless garments by the woman who knows how. The old faded gown that is out of style can be readily dyed with Diamond Dyes to a tashiona able color and then made over so that it will look almost like new. Suits for the boys can be made from old ones dis carded by the father, and a bath in Dia mond Dyes will make them look likenew. Dresses and cloaks for the little girls can be made with but little trouble and scarcely any expense, from cast-off gar ments of the older folks, and when the color is changed with Diamond Dyes, the made-overs will look as though they were fresh from the dressmaker. Diamond Dyes are made especially for home use, and the plain directions on each package make it impossible for even the most inexperienced to have poor luck with these dyes. They color any thing, from ribbons, feathers, and scarfs to beavy coats and gowns, and make perfectly non-fading colors, even hand somer than those made by the profes sional dyer. Alfred Tennyson on Eternal Punish ment. Lord Tennyson's life has now been before the world for some weeks, and the opinions expressed by competent judges who were intimate friends of the poet strangely vary. On three or four occa sions, both at Farringford and Alder worth, I had the honor of being Tenny son's guest, and the vivid impressions left on my mind by his personality and conversation made his biography in tensely interesting. I shall never forget the incandescent honesty of Tennyson's mind. One night he was speaking of the future life, and on the unlairness of sen tencing man to permarentpain tor trans itory errors. He seemed to have been thinking and feeling deeply on the sub ject, for he suddenly struck the table with bis clenched band, and cried, "God damn the God that created eternal pun ishment." A few years afterwards I at tended his funeral in Westminster Abbey and beard "Crossing the Bar" sung by the choir to a hushed and saddened con gregation ol England's best and bright est sons and daughters. The ring of the old man's voice came back to me in the midst of the scene, and I could not fail to recognize that the English-speaking peo ple bad indeed lost not only a poet and seer, but an honest and holy man.
