BEHIND PRISON BARS.
WHAT MAY BE SEEN IN ANY GREAT
HOME OF CRIMINALS.
A Visit to Sing Sing, Mew York State's
Famous Receptacle for Convicts - Tho
Prison Odor — The Apparent Lack of
Strength In Visible Government.
A prison interior has a strange, mor
bid fascination for the average freeman.
There is such a general atmosphere of
weird unreality about it all, uccentuated
by the sternest realities of an iron disci
pline. From the burly, hard faced
guard, who leans upon his shining Win
chester in the sentry box on the walls,
to the pale consumptive murderer, whose
hacking cough is the only sound that
breaks tho stillness of tho prison hos
pital, everybody and thing is strangely
different from the outer world. Hun
dreds of silent, striped suited convicts
bending over their workbenches, walk
ing about the yard with arms folded or
iunrolling in lockstep with eyes averted,
surround tbe visitor on every side.
There is a peculiar odor born both by
the prison apartments and by the prison
inmates which is as marked and dis
tinctive as tho odor of the hospital or of
the steerage. It tells of a life of torpid
ity, barren of sunshine and of change.
It tells of utensils and cells made stale
and foul with constant usage in spite of
endless scrubbing and rinsing. The
prison is one great hive of yellow, close
cropped, hangdog looking humanity,
speaking to their keepers or to their
companion laborers at rare intervals and
in subdued tones, but possessed of some
secret freemasonry and means of com
munication with one another and with
the outside world that baffles the most
rigid discipline and searching inquisi
tion.
The thing that strikes the visitor from
the outer world most is the apparent
weakness of the governing power. A
hundred convicts armed with knives two
feet long and sharp as razors are cutting
out great piles of clothing in a room
guarded by half a dozen apparently un
armed keepers. Another company of
surly malefactors are plying the hammer
and chisel in a stone yard, mingling with
& handful of guards whose skulls could
be split in five seconds after the giving of
a preconcerted signal. It ia the vast but
unseen slumbering power of the state
that holds them; the knowledge of the
keen sighted, iron nerved marksmen on
the outer walls, whose repeating rifles
carry seventeen lives apiece, and the
hopelessness of flight to a world where
every man's hand would be against them,
and even temporary success could only
end in death or lengthened punishment.
Principal Keeper Connaughton, of Sing
Sing prison, has spent seventeen years of
his life among convicts and never car
ried a pistol. Dozens of times he has
been assaulted by desperate convicts, but
his brawny arm and heavy stick havo
carried him through safely.
"What was tho narrowest escape you
-ever; had'/" a wondering visitor asked him
■once.
"When a fellow jumped on me with a
knife as I was sitting in my ofittce," said
the keeper.
"What did you do?"
"Sent him to the hospital when I fin
ished," was the laconic but expressive
iinswer.
"They have no heart," continued this
steely eyed convict driver with tho
square, massive jaw. "In the days
when we worked them in the quarries 1
have seen three hundred of them break
away in a body and go running down
through the yard to tho railway track.
Only two guards with Winchesters
stood between this rushing mob and
freedom. The first three shots dropped
the first three convicts, and the rest
turned and ran for their lives back to
quarters."
Among the curiosities of every prison
are tho famous convicts, notorious mur
derers, fallen bank presidents, clever
swindlers and romantic desperadoes of
every type. The oldest prisoner is also
trotted out for inspection by the spe
cially favored; some old, white haired,
pale faced man, who for twoscore years
perhaps has not looked beyond the
.prison walls, stands blinking before the
nsitors. When he left the world tho
civil war was unfought, France was an
empire, Germany a mass of disorgan
ized states. Outside the shining river
still draws ijss water from the purple
hill, and bnsy life flows on, but all is
dead to him.
As the visitor stands in the little
green courtyard at sundown and sees
company after company of sickly look
ing prisoners issue from shops and store
,rooms and wind around the walks like
b *o many huge centipeds, with tho un
dulations of the lockstep, each man
with <k • S '°P Paii on nis arm and a loaf of
bread i. n nis hand; as he views them dis
appearing i nto the cryptlike dining
room, who. ** floor is wet with the slops
from* a tho 'isand tin coffee cups, or
watches them .filing into the tier after
tier of galleries *•»•* lead to their nar
row, stuffy little where the night
is passed uudor lo.'* and key; as he
comes through the arched entrance
on his way to freedom and catches a
glimpse of the waiting loom, where a
prisoner stands with a look ot agony in
his dull face beside the sob shaken form
of a visiting sister or inothei*' bs he
hears tho great iron gate shut With a
harsh, jangling sound behind him and
slowly shakes off the horror and el'S:
grace that steep the very atmosphere of
the place, he realizes as he never did be
iore that the way of the transgressor is
.hard. —New York Tribune.
The Area of the moon.

caused the "star gazers" to announce
that the surface of the moon is abont as !

combined, or about equal to the area of
North and South America without the

LOS ANGELES HERALD: SATURDAY MORNING, JANUARY 7, 1893.
Unexpected Visitors.
Mr. and Mrs. Wayland had taken nr.
their residence in a small village. Theii
arrival was duly chronicled in tholocal pa
per. The grocer and the milkman an
nounced themselves punctually, but at the
end of two months no other visitors had a P'
peared.
Every afternoon Mrs. Wayland had con
fidently expected I hat some one would call,
and had remained steadfastly indoors foi
fear of missinf; n visit. She arrayed her
self In becomiii"; gowns and posed in her
lonely parlor in vain. Tho two months
passed without a visitor. One rather dull
Say her courage failed her.
"I declare, I won't, wait fo>- anybody to
come any longer. Evidently I have got to
be my own best company. 1 will go to
work in the garden." So saying, she put
on a worn gingham gown and occupied her
self in raking up the small ln,wn.
She had hardly begun ■.-. hen there walked
into the garden two ladles, who had evi
dently come to call. Mrs. Wayland had
no time to retreat and walked forward to
meet them.
The ladies Introduced themselves, and
seeing Mrs. Way-land's employment sug
gested that she should show them her gar
den.
"So we walked about that little grass
plat and looked at my one rosebush," said
Mrs. Wayland in telling of the visit; "and
as it was pretty Warm we sat down on the
piazza steps, and not until they had gone
did I realize that my first and only callers
had not been inside my house.
"On the oohtrary, they had seen me in
my very worst dress. And instead of dis
cussing any subject of general interest,
Buchasthe Characteristics of our neighbors,
we had just told each other what was good
to make grass grow, und how to keep rose
bushes healthy, aud what we thought of
lawn mowers.
"I believe, though, Mrs. Gordon did
speak about the lovely view from our front
steps. Anyway wo had a nice visit, and I
feel as if they wen; old friends,"—Youth's
Companion.
'i n,' Armadillo.
The armadillo, as eccentric in his habits
as in his appearance, does the duty of the
domestic cat among the field mice, which
are terribly destructive. Voracious in his
appetite, he is sedentary by Inclination,
but ho can find his game with very little
trouble. Alice are always more or less
abundant, though periodically, and almost
punctually, their numbers decline, but In
certain years they positively swarm. Then
the dogs subsist on them; they fatten the
poultry, aud great flights of fowls of the
air are perpetually on tho hover over their
breeding grounds. As for the armadillo,
he goes to work methodically, quartering
the plain like v well bred beagle and snif
fing the earth with preternatural acute
ness. When his nose informs him that a
mouse is near, he creeps up stealthily
toward the spot; then, slowly drawing him
self up aud making his spring, he traps the
mouse or a whole family of mice beneath
his body.
Hut he does not confine himself to a
mouse and insect diet, and in attacking a
snake he uses his impenetrable body armor
as a weapon of offense. A friend of Mr.
Hudson's witnessed one of these encoun
ters. The armadillo rushed upon a snake,
which vainly Bought to escape, and rocked
himself to and fro on the body until the
victim was cut up into sections under the
sharp edges of the armadillo's bony cover
log. Should animal food fall him the
armadillo falls back upon vegetables, so
that, he need never take more than indis
pensable exercise and can always keep
bin.self in comfortable condition.—Kiln
