HE PREACHED TO CONVICTS. Capt. Jack Crawfor I lias an Attentive AuJieuce. "I feel like a maverick in a brandin' pen," was the striking and thoroughly characteristic opening phrase in the talk that Capt. Jack Crawford, the poet scout of the Sierras who arrived in Boston from New Mexico last Satur day, gave io 00 coovicts at the state prison in Charleston yesterday morning says the Boston Globe. He was the best drawing card that has been at the big stone fort at Prison point for a long time, not excepting hs vaudeville eotertainments that Warden Bridges provides on holidays for the pris iners of the state. His reputation was not unknown to the greater part of the convicts, some of them remembering his visit paid to the institution eight years ago, and ithers knowing him through reading i.hp versus that he has penned on the prairies. A man that boldly confessed his f ults,.acknowledged that he held him--e.f do better than the man in the som ber -array before him, although his seeming condition was belter, he was taken in a frieodly spirit by the prison ers. He had a peculiar individuality that was highly appreciated. There was a ttrange western flavor in his talk and mannerism. He. occupied the pul pit in the chapel above the rotunda, and with ruddy f ice, curling hair, fall ing below his shoulders, clad in a dark cutaway suit, he presented an unusual figure. He spoke for nearly half an hour, followed by Rev. D H Tribou, chap lain of the Charlestown navy yard. The poet scout looked into the faces that were regarding him curiously, and the remark, that he felt like an unclaimed, uobranrie i person of their own kind, was sufficient to create a favorable impress-ion at once, and de spite the f-tc.t that it was a religious service he was warmly applauded. From that moment to the end of his talk he was constantly interrupted with vigor ous applause. "1 would rather talk," said he, "to this audience than to any other on earth because 1 can sympathize with you more than n ost men. I feel that I am one of you, the only diuVrenre being that. I never wascauaht. Through the influeni-e of a Christian mother, and a promise given her that 1 would never drink intoxiean-s. I believe that I whs prevented from committing acts which might have led to prison, or death, be-ctu-e 1 kept that, promise. I confess that I was recklet-s, impulsive and thoughtless as a boy, and am now. Most of you did wrong through Ftrong drink and in a temporary fit of insanity ba the impulse vi e'sciteuieot, and there t ITS JUST THIS WAY. We want your trade want it badly; but we know there is no reason in bothering you to make a change unless you can profit by it. YOU CAN PROFIT BY IT. We sell only pure foods and the highest quality of groceries and provis ions. Our prices are ex t x X tremely low when the high standard of our goods are considered. If you want any dainty novelty in our line; we have it if its good. J. B. Watson, The Grocer, Phone 161, Cor. San Antonio and Stanton Street i are no more generous, kind-hearted men in any community than are tbe ma rity of those behind prison bars. besides tbe great majority of you were till in your teens when you first went astray. He dealt further with the temperance Question, and condemned the sale of iquor vigorously, saying that the men who sold it to tbe men before him ought to be serving time instead of tbe present coovicts. He "allowed" that liquor was tbe main cause of driving men to commit crimes. His theology was somewhat startling to the prison officials and other out siders who were among the auditors It was expressed on a parallel Diane to this sen'i nent which be expressed wito considerable force: "A man in the frenzy of liquor that shoves a knife through the heart of a friend is not a murderer. He is not responsible for bisacts." He spoke of his visits to the prisons in Stillwater, Minn., and Leavenworth, Kan. "I have received," he said, "over one hundred and eighty letters from the prisoners that I have talked to. every one of these breathing a spirit of thankfulness that they have heard me, and a promise that my talk wouid be remembered and made profitable in their future lives. Toere is a heap of satisfaction to me in this. My talks may not be thoroughly orthodox, but as long as they are practical and true, I know that good results follow, and no better evidence is needed than the letters I receive from the prisoners themselves. " He related an incident of his scout ing days He learned that there was to be an Indian outbreak in a certain section. He warned a family and took to a place of safety a four weeks' old baby on the pommel of his saddle. Nine years later the mother of the child wrote to Cant. Crawf ird telling him that her baby was dead, and asking him to write a poem. He did so and pro duced the piece stvled "Sunshine be hind every cloud." He recited this to the audience. His concluding words proved to be very interesting to the prisooers. He introduced to his auditors from bis memory a character of the west known as "Pony Bill." whose Christian name was rd Bolles. "Jr'ony BUI was a cowboy of the wild and woolly variety, who drank hrewater with tbe utmost abandon and discharged his "euos" with equally as much promiscuous ness. He afterward became a western preacher of the gospel. Capt. Craw ford gave a synopsis sermon that "Pony Bill" once preached, choosing for his theme, "Toe prodigal son."

A business session was held this noon in Masonic hall, the parade was scheduled for 3 p. m., if the weather was not too cold, and the evening and night is being given over to the in itiating and organization, and a big banquet at tbe Pierson. The local Masons are extending a hand of generous-welcome to the Sarin - ers from abroad. The banquet com mittee are, R K. Comfort, chairman; John Julian, Will Race.

Mr. Richards and several others of the reception committee went out las' evening on tne east nouna xexas it Pacihc train, to meet tne Drethreu- and returned with them in their Pull, man car. The car was suitably decorated with banners on the outer walls, and the name Hella on a yellow silk bncer was so bung in front ot the car, that people passtag by the train saw only the startling legend, "hell" staring them in the face. Just why that Pullman car should be a branch of the infernal re gions was not understood until the platform was reached when the letter A appeared. I hen the legend spell ed Hella. A local tligbt says "of a felLi" would have completed the legend nicely. In the coach were Illustrious fo- tentate John vv. Hunter, illustrious Rabban T. D. Miller, Iilustikus As sistant Rabban T- D.

Be-all, Collector Davis, Lacklind, Noake, Reeves, Fewell, Comfort, and others of this eity were at the depot to mi-et the train which was brought in by Conductor Bacon and Engineer Oliver on time. Carriages were in waiting, and the visitors wfre escorted to tbe Pierson hotel the headquarters of the Shri'iers. Then the committees after seeing their eastern guests were comfortably settled, went down to the Santa Fe de" pot to meet the Shriners from the north. The train was on time as usual, and the following Knight's of the Scim-et-r and 'Jrescect were welcomed: C. E Martin. E-Uvin Harris, Leo Lowor st.oin and J. K D-1I rt of San Marcial, E. S.

Diamonds, Joseph, Mo. The name of the temple to which tbe Nw Mexico nohles h- long is named Ballul Abyad. This is a rather stout name to p-onounce, but a Herald reporter had si shrin n write it all out letter by letter, &o it must be straight. The brethern from the north were escorted in carriages to tbe Pierson. it seems strange tbat amid all this wealth of Arabic insignia there was not one word of Arabian heard. All the salutations we-e in plain, unfrilled and homely English, and moreover there were no salaams, or other eastern salutations tbat a misguided public had come to believe would be indulged in, neither did the visitors uncover their feet on entering the hotel. Judging by Mos lem etiquette, this last was a marked breach of Oriental manners. More over, a deluded public had come to be lieve tbat the Arabians from Dallas would bring a real live camel along. Only they didn't, and as the caravan passed the high school building the children thronged out to see tbe camel that did not appear. "On, the camel didn't come; ain't that just too bad," was tbe general exclamation. There are eighteen applicants for admission to tbe new shrine, but for obvious reasons, over which the Herald has no control, their names will not appear in print until thny are initiated to the mysteries of tbe pyra mids antiquities of the Nile. 'The Dal las people brought along a wbole lot of paraphernalia where with to initiate, and they propose to have a red hot time. At 2:30 this afternoon, Recorder Manning, of the Hella Temple said that there would be about sixty nobles of the Mystic Shrine in the parade which would probably start about 2:30 from Masonic hall. The Shriners would not parade comoany front,, or even in column of fours as they had no marching drill, they would march in columns of twos and spread out The officers would appear in the regalia of the order, while the laity were to march in full evening dress, headed by the McGmty band. In response to further questioning, Recorder ManniDg said the idea that a separate temple was to be instituted here was a mistake. There is only one temple to each state or territory, each group of shrines outside of the temple city being known as such and such an oasis; and this was to be the El Pan oasis in the desert of Texas. All tbe El Paso Shriners were to belong to Hella Temple of Dallas. Tbe initiation was ' o begin about 7:30, and the banquet well, when they got through at Mason ic ball. No, the pilgrims didn't bring any camel, but tbey brought along a bass and snare drum, and these instru ments of torture would be heard from later. Most of the visitors return home to morrow. The entering wedge of a fatal com- olaint is often a slight cold, which a dose or two of Aver's Cherry Pectoral might have cured at the commence ment. Therefore, it is advisable to have this prompt and sure remedy al ways at hand to meet an emergency.
