Uncle Sam has gone on record as an advocate of the employment of convict labor on the public roaSfS. J. E. Pennybncker and H. S. Fair banks of thir office of public roads of the department of agriculture and Dr, W. F, Draper of the.,public health service recently collaborated on a bul letin which set forth the, ideas of the government experts on #Jieis£ubject. '"This mpy souttd like an"'old story, said Mr. Pennybacker, chief of the dl vision-'of roatl economics, in discussing the Interest taken by his office in the subject, "aud it is fundamentally, but until recently its most1-important and promising-'angles have l)een lost to sight. "Employing convicts on open-air work is hy ao,Jneana a radical depar ture from established methods—froua Jong-established methods, I may say There are numerous references in his tory to the employment of prisoners on the public works of the ancient king doms and almost invariably these works were performed In the open air. In fact, the practice of indoor labor is of comparatively modern origin, and dates back no further than the devel opment of the workhouse In the six teenth century, while the penitentiary, as It Is now known, is a product of the nineteenth century. "In America pertiaps the earliest record of the" employment of prisoners on public works is to be found In an enactment of the Virginia colonial as sembly of 1658. I might trace the his tory of convict labor throughout the ensuing years to the present and the facts would prove that outdoor labor of many forms has been widely agi tated for convicts at all times In the life of this country. Objections Are Overcome. "So you see we are not setting forth an original idea. Yet, when we recom mend the utilization of prison labor to maintain and improve the road sys tems of the country, we do say that if road work hy convict labor is un dertaken with proper attention to all of its possibilities, the results will succeed In quelling the many objec tions that economists and criminolo gists are raising everywhere. Our scheme has .'f course, its objection able features, but a full consideration of Its advantages and drawbacks seem to show that such employment might be provided for at least a part of the prisoners in all the states with good results. "I think that the advantage which carries the greatest force Is that road work Is undoubtedly more healthful than any form of employment provided In a prison shop. Hard manual labor, in close touch with fresh air and sun shine, is universally recognized as most beneficial, while continuous dwell ing within doors is a most unnatural life and can exert no marked good effect upon any of the states' prison ers. Prison statistics show that a ma jority of prison inmates are of the la boring class and their habits of life kept them out of doors. This being the case, outdoor work would ma terially fii tUenx ia.udai their il-cc.In H«V/ U/HAT JX yOU MCrtN By TH4T V,\ W?ICL k&AHfcXfCA!N \OU BOX i, t.-: I *.«"• *.1 .5* the world at their release and resume their former occupation. Free Labor Not Affected. "Prisou officials favor road work for the reason that it removes the convict as far as possible from competition with free labor, and this is a most im portant point. No matter what form of employment is adopted for prison ers, unless it be entirely unproductive, it is true that the interests of free la bor are affected to a greater or less extent, and this, obviously, is not a fair condition to Impose upon the law-abid ing citizen body. But road work, being performed In the interests of the pub lic only, enriches no private employer to the Injury of the free laborer, nor Is its product placed on sale in competi tion with that of free labor. What Is more, the convict is not depriving the free laborer of work, since much of the road work performed by convicts could not be undertake^ at all, for financial reasons, if it were necessary to em ploy free labor. "As now practiced in a number.of states, work with the road camp is re served as a reward for prisoners who have proved their merit and good iu tention in confinement. By doing away with all marks of degradation, such as stripes and chains and shaven heads, and by granting a degree of freedom as the ability to use it is manifested, the publicity of the convict's position on the roads is transformed from a mark of disgrace to an acknowledg ment of the confidence of his keepers. Such practice fa self-restraint and proper living titular the guidance of the camp fits him. to ilve a life of similar circumspection' after his discharge. All prison officials who'have followed this system declare that this is the actual effect on prisoners who have been road workers. As a useful factor in penal discipline, its merit is being all tM tardily conceded." The Gentle Cynic.

No Manufacturer Will Market It ftr None Can Get Exclusive Use ef the Formula. With the problem of finding a way to utilize the vast percentage of waste In the annual apple crop of the land,, one-fourth of which is lost in the orch ards, H. C. Gore, chemist in charge of Uncle Sam's fruit, and vegetable utili zation laboratory, discovered that this great apple loss was not so much due to lack of cold storage and marketing conditions us to a lack of knowledge on the part of the farmers as to wliat lo do with the culls and apples for re tail sale that would net them any profit. Cider-making, though neither diffl* cult nor expensive, did not give the solution, for it is so perishable, so bulky, and the price it brings too low to make it profitable. So, also, cider may be made into vinegar, but there is a limitation to that murket. All sorts of experiments were made toward finding a method of keeping cider, but they did not result satisfac torily! Finally a barrel of frozen cider gave the key. It was observed that when the cider was allowed to freeze naturally, the ice formed in a nearly solid mass around (lie outer sides of the barrel, leaving In the center a con centrated honfrozen liquid which pos sessed all of the flavor, but which con tained.much less water. The outer Ice proved to be mostly water, with very little of sugar. Analysis of the con centrated cider proved that it con tained sufficient proportions of the acid and sugar to preserve It, and the chemist believed that nt last had been found a means to keep cider for the market after its usual season was past. Laboratory experiments duplicating nature's freezing finally established the fact that concentrated cider would keep much longer than in its original condition and in cold storage would keep indefinitely. Delicious as this new kind of cider is, it is not being adopted commercial ly, for' the simple reason that no man ufacturer Is willing to put It on the market, though all who have sampled it admit its superiority to many of the soft drinks which now are popular at the soda fountains. The reason is that Uncle Sam will not give the formula exclusively to any one bottler. The leading drink purveyors Insist that commercial snceess in marketing a new drink depends chiefly upon the manufacturer having the exclusive se cret and patented recipe which will give his brand a monopoly. However, being always paternal, Uncle Sam has gone still further ia his efforts to teach the apple raisers the full value of their crops, for he has had his chemists compile and is sue a bulletin with alt of the methods, directions, cost and even recipes for the utilization of cider made in this new way, and then teaching ways of making splendid apple sirup that Is marketable. The same bulletin gives, recipes fpr a number of dishes in society."—Puck. which fhe sirup forms part. r*ri. •M:: ..." —flits cents is a whole lot when added to hat qual ity—g et this per feet ha and you'll r, apprec iate it THURSDAY, APRIL 5, 1917. rr Seek Heirs of Men Who Died in Uncle Sam's Army The endeavor of the Euro* pean nations to locate the rela tives of men who have fallen in battle while serving the various foreign legions bears an inter est ing comparison to similar ef forts now being undertaken by Uncle Sam to trace the relatives or heirs of men in the American service who have died, some of whom have left valuable prop erty. The United States Marine corps issued a bulletin contain ing the names of Sergt. Albert Jolly of Melbourne, Australia Corporal Thomas Brophy of Dublin,,, Ireland, and Private Owen Woods (fornier, address unknown), In a further effort to locate their heirs or next of kin. These men, who have been dead over ten years/ left effects of considerable value, and numer ous Inquiries during that period have failed to locate their right ful heirs. Government Buys Old Trees. Some of the biggest trees In the Se quoia national park have remained In the hands of private owners until re cently. Congress appropriated $50,000 to purchase the trees and the land on which they stood, but $20,000 more was required to settle other claims. The $20,000 has been provided by the Na tional Geographic society for this pur pose, and the entire tract will become the property of the government. Some of the trees thus acquired 'are believed to be 4,000 years old. Argentina Buying Automobiles. Big shipments of automobiles from the United States to Argentina in 1916 were reported by Uncle Sam.. The to tal imports Into the South American republic during the year amounted to 4,676 machines. The greater part of the cars imported into Argentina are of comparatively small type, designed particularly for country use. Small cars are becoming popular among farmers, who find them of great serv icei it is said, in facilitating rural buslneao. Driving Screws Into Plaster.
