Prison Locals. —Keciever E. S. Brown paid us SIO,OO for the first printed copy of Tiie Mirror. —The stone steps leading into the new main cell building is a great improvement. —Mrs. J. S. Anderson of the city of Still water, was the first subcriber to The Pri son Mirror. —There are three bubbling springs in the prison yard which supply the entire prison with pure, clear water. —The prisoners will do well to observe closely, the rules governing the prison libra ry, which will appear in our next issue. —Behold, in this wicked world many good Threshing Machines are made, of which, the Machine made here is “Chief.” -Twenty eight sacks of flour, of 100 ibs. each, and 100 lbs. of corn meal is used each week in preparing the “staff of life” for our prison population. —The friends of The Mirror, will be ©onfering a favor upon us, by patronizing thosegenerous merchants whose advertise ments appear in our columns. —Stewart Benner is to have a new kitchen built and other improvements to facilitate the preparation of food, among which will be steam for cooking purposes. —Officer W. Wells, has gone out to his farm, near Janesville, on a months vaca tion. lie did not forgit to subscribe for The Mirror however, before be went. —Warden Stordoclc lias provided our pris on choir with a goodly supply of handsome new hymn books, and the boys are furnish ing us now witii some excellent singing. —An itemized statement of all receipts and expenditures in connection with this in stitution, will in the future be published in The Mirror, the lirst Wednesday of each month. —The “boys" occupying quarters opposite Tiie Mirror office are delighted with the window which the Warden lias had cut through the four foot walls to admit air and light into their heretofore dark, close and gloomy abodes. —Tiie Prison Mirror, is for sale in the City at Burlingham & Wilsons; at the Pri son, at the Wardens office, also at the Edi torial rooms, at 5 cents per copy. Subscrip tions will also be taken at any of the above places at our regular rates, SI 00 per year. —The following poem is respectfully ded icated to nisrlit officer William Hall, by our prison poet. Oh. ye night guards oft times make us Feel like swearing a big swore. When ye, tramping, leave behind thee Footprints on our painted floor. Cole Younger, our geniel prison Libra rian, has recieved new honors at the bands of The Mirror by being appointed to the honorable position of “printer’s devil;” in which position he will in the future keep the flies off all the gifts of “wedding cake,” and other editorial favors of like nature which may find lodgement in our sanctum .sanctorum. . < ' • *r- ■ Hurrah for The Prikson Mirror! —The Mirror office will soon be supplied with a “dandy” new job press and will not be out done in this line of printing. —Rev. Father Murphy almost knocked the bottom out of our treasurer’s pocket by dropping into it two big silver dollars in payment for two yearly subscriptions to The Mirror, which was our first cash. “(Jo ye and do likewise.” —The editorial eye of The Mirror has peeped into several “residences” on tiie top ranges, which were not in as neat and clean ly condition as might be, come “boys” brace up, and dont furnish us with any more items of this character. —Much of the great success which lias thus far attended The Mirror, isowing to the kindly interest and assistance of Mr. Seward, the genial editor of the “Stillwater Messenger” to whom we desire, heieby to extend our deepest heartfelt thanks and gratitude. —Nearly one thousand volumes of new books, comprising the works of the most eminent and favorite authors, has been added to the Prison Library',during the past week, to accomplish which, Warden Stordoclc, advanced as a loan to tiie library fund from bis private purse, $250. —The night guards have presented a pe tition to tiie Hon. Mayor and City Council of the City of Stillwater, praying that they will condemn as a nuisance tiie blowing of “fog horns” ect. in tiie public streets, by venders of bread, cucumbers, cabages and “other fruit”. Strange that some people have no ear for music. —Deputy Warden Westby, with a party of friends went out to Bass Lake, on a fish ing excursion, last week, it is presumed that the usual precautionary supply of “Snake Medicine” was not forgotten, lienee the Deputy's safe return with a handsome string of the finny tribe, but bow much lie paid for them, we failed to learn. —The foundation for the new solitary cell building is being laid; the building when completed will consist of thirty cells, and will be seperated from the main cell building; it is being erected for the especial accomo dation of our refractory brethern who cannot bear the Warden’s indulgence of kind treat ment. We trust that its inhabitants will be few. —“lnconsistency, thour’t a jewel.” This fact was ably illustrated a few evenings since in the prison cell room, by a rat that was faithfully endeavoring to tow off' one of night officer P \s. slippers; tiie idea of a poor little rat. not larger than a berkshire bog, tackling a job that would stick a six mule team, is truly illustrative of the above quotation. —The prisoners of this institution desire hereby to extend to Mrs. S. S. Lough, their deepest heartfelt thanks, indue appreciation of tiie great kindness which she lias so abun dantly shown towards us, by her constant devotion in furnishing music for our chapel service eacli sabbath morning, also for her kindly interest and assistance in the training of our prfson choir. —Warden Stordock, as the recipient of Deceiver E. 8. Brown's most generous dona tion, in lieu of the lirst printed copy of The Prison Mirror, will today present the same, neatly bound in blue silk, and sealed in an envelope of white satin, to the Receiver as a souvenir, in token of our gratitude. A like souvenir, will be presented to Mrs. J. 8. Anderson, in token of her being The Mirror’s lirst actual subscriber. —A feat of activity occured a few even ings since, in the prison cell room, which is seldom if ever equaled. The Satanic mem ber of Tiie Mirror force, carelessly laid upon the bench whereon lie was sitting, a lighted cigar, officer A n of the night force came up and with the dignity of a mod ern hero, cooly seated himself upon the inno fensive little “snipe”—a moment only, and the deed was done; Mr. A —arose with the velocity of a Dakota cyclone, and it is need less to remark, a sorer, if not a wiser man, but tiie fire was quenched. We do not won der that the Warden is enabled to save the State seven or eight hundred dollars per year, on insurance, when he is provided with such an available fire extinguisher. —The Mirror desires to extend to Mr. P. Begg, Superintendent of Stationery Sup plies of the N. W. Mt’g A: Car Co. its most gracious thanks for valuable assistance rend ered toward it in the purchase of papers etc. at greatly reduced rates, which accrued greatly to its present success, in enabling us to present to our readers The Mirror printed upon an extra fine quality of pa per, which they with us will not fail to appreciate. —Any person purchasing a bottle of Ack er's Blood Elixir, who after using two-thirds of same, in accordance with directions, is not fully satisfied as to its efficacy as a blood purifier, and curative remedy, will receive SI,OO by returning the remaining one third of bottle to Crandall & Barclay, Wholesale and Detail Druggists, Stillwater, Minn! who desire to call special attention to the Elixir, beleiving it to be Honest Goods, do not hesitate to give it their guarantee to cure any case of blood poisoning or disorder. They also keep constantly on band a fine assortment of all the popular medicines of the day: and desire to call special attention to their prescription department, which is perfect in all itsappurtenantcies, using only the very best and purest drugs, and fill their prescriptions accurately, giving full weight and measure. Their prices is ever satisfact ary, as all know, who ileal with them. -The Mirror office and library received a most pleasant visit from Mrs. and Miss Carman of Minneapolis, a few days since, who brought with them a large package of books, comprising about forty volumes, which they presented to the prison library, this makes over one hundred and sixty vol umes’, inclusive of magizines and other peri od icles, which Mrs. Carman has presented to the prison library, within tiie last two weeks; Mrs. \Y. 11. Carman is vice president of the W. C. T. U. of Minneapolis, and is the estimable wife of \V. 11. Carman. Editor and Proprietor of The Deview, of Minne apolis, the most eminent and worthy temper ance advocate in the northwest; also of The Helpmate, a most unique monthly mag azine, which for beauty, purity and in terest, is second to none. Mrs. Carman is well known in the Twin Cities, and through out the State and country in general, by her thousands of noble deeds and acts of charity and Christian benevolence; she is never idle never falters, and never more happy than when administering to the wants of some of God’s unfortunate creatures, and many young men and women, who are to-day in high social standing, living bright, peaceful honorable, useful and successful lives, owe their all in this life, and their hope in the life to come, to her noble, Christian endeav ors. Were there more such noble hearted faithful, Christian women in tins world, as Mrs. W. H. Carman, there would he much less need of prison holts and bars. The in mates of this institution return their deepest thanks, to Mr. and Mrs. Carman, for their generous contributions to our library and many other deeds of kindness which they have so abundantly bestowed upon us.
