THE HARTFORD HERALD TAOR TIIUEK I. V PANAMA TO-DAY TO- Vivid Pictures Of Life In Canal Zone ''from religious- viewpoint 0 MORROW ; Quaint Indian Village Where Natives Navigate Solid Mahogany Canoes. "ivouv" is i.ni: khom nuts Ur. S. Karl Taylor, of the Method lst 13pIscop.il Church, elves tho fol lowing fine and enchanting descrip tion of riinama, in which he tells of an unaccomplished task and a spir itual emiTRcncy: "I was agreeably surprised during my entire stay In Panama. Ileforc leaving America 1 had read much about the (intuit lock, and about tho Culebra cut. In fact, I was led to think that the canal zone consisted primarily of locks and cuts, and that tho whole thing would be rather' dreary to n man not particularly in terested in machinery or engineer ing feats. "Hut to my great delight, I found the canal full of liuman Interest and also vastly attractive on account of its tropical scenic beauty. Few of us, I think, have fully realized that tho canal zone lies well within tho tropics. This means rich and va ried foliage, and unusual forms of llora and fauna. Hananas, pineap ples and cocoanuts grow in their na tural state in this region. Ilaro but terflies, beetles and bugs of various sorts, some of them rich In coloring, are to be seen. And monkeys and curious wild turkeys nre found in the forests. "My guide took me across (ii.tun lake to visit a quaint Indian village. Here it is Interesting to note how the Creator has furnished food, cooking utensils, and even cloth ing, so that labor is greatly lighten ed.' "In the front dooryard of one of the native huts wo found the' cala bash tree on which large gourd shaped things grow. From those cooking utensils nre made. Uy the side of tho calabash was a bread fruit tree with a curious large fruit which the natives use in place of bread. Almost everywhere under the soil are roots called yams. When cooked, tiese tasto very much like sweet potatoes. And growing wild in tho forests 'are hananas and co V coantttH In great abundance. One of the natives whom wo vis ited In this village, had a cute little white-faced monkey -chained In front of his house. And running wround In tho yard was a wild tur .key, entirely different from our wild turkeys, but a very interesting bird and quite friendly. Then, too, there was n wild pig, or peccary, which is said to lie tho wildest animal in all fcouth America. This particular pig, however, was very tame. "In tho yard also was a quantity of vegetnblo ivory nuts from which collar-buttons and things of that sort are made. Tlieso nuts uro round and very hard anil -when op ened resemble Ivory. Thoy sell for $120 a ton In America, but tho na tives pick them up on the ground near this Httlo village. "There are many Indian villagers along tho coast and around the shores of thu lake. It la most Inter esting to see thorn going to and front tho trading places In their na tive dug-out canoes. These boats are very large, sometimes seven feet wide and thirty feet long, and are cut out of solid mahogany. The na tives are skilled boatmen, and uro able to navigate waters that would bo impossible to tho white man lit his modem boat. Coming down to tho trading places, tho natives bring their boats filled with bananas, co coanuts, palms and other urtlcles of trade. "Tho political, physical and sani tary aspects of tho Panama canal f problem have- now been largely solv ed. Tho unaccomplished task is tho spiritual one. I have no hesitation lit saying that this impressed inn as being the most difficult and urgent of all. "Panama Is peopled by ono of tho htrangest mixtures of races to bo found anywhoro lit tho world. Tho only plnco at all comparable with it that I havo eVcr seen is the city of Singapore. In the latter city, while almost every race under heaven is represented, tho nationalities re main comparatively separate and distinct. Hut in Panama they are all merged. Aside from Americans and Europeans, there are hardly any people of pure blood on the Isthmus, Cblnbse, colored people! from the West Indies, Panamanians and Spaniards have all mingled. There nro also many evidences, I re gret to say, that Anglo-Saxon blood is being poured Into this turbulent strain. 'The Americans nro not setting a very worthy example from tho standpoint of things spiritual. Tho canal Commission has repressed rather thnn encouraged aggressive Christian work. For instance, in tho Voting .Men's Christian Associa tion, popular throughout tho cntinl zone and favored by the commission, a splendid work of thu clubhouse type Is being done. v Tho associa tions, however, nro definitely in formed thnt they arc to cut out tho rollglous side of the work lust as largely as possible. "Church attendance on tho part of the officials of the commission nnd the rank mid ille of our Ameri can canal workers Is practically nil, and Sabbath observance, in the sense thnt wo know It in America, is conspicuous by its absence. "To meet thlR spiritual emergency wo have the merest handful of men nnd women, who are working against tremendous odds. I carried away the very distinct impression thnt our work Is poorly equipped and Inadequately manned, when wo consider the tnsks before us. if the American people nro to grapple with the spiritual problem In tho canal zone, It must be handled In a much more adequnto way. "On the other hand, there nre mnuy signs of promise. Some of tho finest young fellows I over met aro actlvo in our Christian work. If we had a better and more accessi ble equipment, no doubt many more could be enlisted. ItOMAXTIC CAItKKIt AXI) IXSPIKATIOX TO IIOVS Trte death of Sir Francis Joseph Campbell In England calls attention to a romantic career. Thnt a boy born blind In a small town .In Ten nesseo would live to be knighted by the King of (Jreat Ilritain and Km peror of India, would hardly have seemed n probable prophecy If It had been inado by the caster of the boy's horoscope or a reader of palms when Joseph Francis Campbell was a boy. A blind girl committed suicide in California a few days ago because she could not support tho burden of her great aflllctlon, although sbo was a talented musician. Joseph Francis Campbell forgot in hard work the handicap of blindness and became principal of a Ilrltlslt edu cational institution devoted to tho Interests of persons similarly aflllct ed. He became a notable muslclnn nnd instructor and claimu'd sufficient attention to win klughthood In its most honorable form. This Is a story of tho triumph of work and optimism which should in spire every boy who reads It. Noth ing is impossible to hard work, intel ligence, persistency nnd optimism.

WM OCCUPIES PRISON MANSION And Is Surrounded By Ev ery Luxury. NOW UNDER SENTENCE TO DIE Sing: Sing's First Female Prisoner Lives Elegant ly In 14 Rooms. W.ltlK.V AT LOSS WHAT TO DO Osslnnlng, N. V., July 13. Inves tigation by llronx county taxpayers has revealed that Mrs. Madeline Fc rola, condemned to death In tho electric chair for the murder of u faithless sweetheart, Is living In n palace connected with Sing Sing prison, literally with "vassals and serfs by her side." This Is no dream by the young woman It Is only too painfully true for the pleasure of the llronx taxpayers. The Investigation shows that Mrs. Ferola has a fourteen-rooni house, with three bath rooms, a cook, two matrons, three keepers and a gard ner at her command. I'ntll Mrs. Foroln came to Sing Sing she had lived In tho most modest circum stances. Justice Vernon M. Davis of tho Supreme Court sentenced Mrs. Fero la to death for having fatally stab bed the man who had failed to mar-ry-her after promising to do so. It was one of the first murder trials in the new "flronx county, and Wns tho' first Instance of a woman being con victed of first degree murder nnd the first In that young county of a convicted murderer being commit ted to a prison to be put to death. Apparently the clerk of the new court did not know that Sing Sing hns no provision for women prison ers, that women cannot be kept In the death-house, and that all women convicts aio sent to Auburn prison, where there te a woman's depart ment. . James M. Clancy was warden of Sing Sing a month ago when Mrs. Ferola arrived there In the custody of two guards. The law specifically states that no woman shall be har bored in Sing Sing prison. Mr. Clan cy, however, felt ho must obey tho court's order that bo keep .Mrs. Fe rola and put her to death the first week In August. Not long before this, 'P. K." Con uaughtou, famous old . principal keeper of Sing Sing, had died. For many years he had occupied a resi dence of fourteen rooms and three baths across the road from the main entrance to tho prison, it was sup plied to him by the State. Mr. Clancy decided that was the only place in which, under tho law, he could keep Mrs. Ferola. He had to purchase furniture for tho big house, Including table linen and sil ver and bedding. As keepers, or guards, work only 8 hours a day, he had to assign three guards to see that the prisoner did not escape. The Stato law stipulates that only matrons shall come In contact with women prisoners, and as the law permits prison matrons to work twelve hours a day, Mr. Clancy hud to employ two matrons. Matrons nro not supposed to cook, and therefore tho warden had to employ a cook for Mrs. Ferola. This meant u cook .stove, refrigerator and full kitchen equipment. Then two or three men prisoners, known us "trusties," were assigned to keep the large lawn, tho fence and the outside of tlio house in order. When Mr. Clancy voluntarily re signed as warden his successor could find nothing elso to do with .Mrs. Ferola. In fact, tho Investiga tion shows that convicts do most of tho housework lu tho old Couuuugh ton house, even waiting on thu ta ble, at which Mrs. Ferola, under sentence of death, dines In statu. Another convict Is said to havo been assigned to do the laundry work. Tho efforts and time of thu cooks are limited to preparing dishes that appeal to thu palutu of tho only woman prisoner of Slug Slug. Ono of the matrons lias been with Mrs. Fuiolu constantly to sue that no harmful lulluunco touches her. Thu one on tho day shift outs with her. Tho one on tho night shjft prepares her bed nnd bath for her. Tho three keepers uro supposed to patrol the largo lawn to see that Mrs. Ferola does not try to escape. So far she has made no effprt to get uway from tho largo sirloin steaks, the chickens and thu fresh vegeta bles ,11181 tho investigators say are being served In the Connaughton house. As Mrs. Ferola has appealed her case it seems that she has a lease on this "high lire"- with a multitude of servants for ut least a year and a half, and the flronx coqnty citizens want to know If they or the State must pay the expenses. In expectation of n long stny by tho present occupant, several rooms liave'lieen redecorated nnd a request has been made for awnings for the veranda. Mrs. Ferola and her ma trons and attendants spend much time on the wide veranda In large rocking chairs, and ut times the sun Is rather hot. However, the breezes nlwnys are fine nnd the river view Is great. oooooooooooooo o csrmn to w.it tkiims. o dooooooooooooo Ultimatum Having the Inst word with the enemy until to-morrow.

"COI.D CIIKCK" LAW K O.VK OV IIHST ICXACTKD The Paducah News-Democrat ed itorially commends the new "cold check" law as follows: The "cold cheek" law, which was passed at the last session of the Legislature, is now in full force This is one of the most Important measures passed during 'the session of the Legislature, and was enacted for the protection of the merchants, business men and others who have been defrauded by persons giving checks on banks without having money on deposit. Tho law is very plain, ami there can be no excuse offered for any person who attempts to violate same. When a person gives a check on any banking house be must have on deposit at that time enough money to enter the amount called for by the check or he is subject to prosecution.
