Putting Federal Convicts to Work on Roads Would Benefit Them and Country By THOMAS I. TYNAN Warden of Colorado Stem Pmeniy I understand that in the three federal penitentiaries leaven wort th, 'Atlanta and MeNeil's Island, there are confined about four thousand m1.n with very little work, if any, for them. If there is anythii.,z on earth that Sixty per cent of these men would be trustworthy under proper laws and under proper conditions-at leas that has proved to be true in the handling of state prisoners in Colorado. With an indeterminate-sentene law and a good-time law, g.ranting a reduction of the minimum sentence for work on trust and honor outside and away from the p ri on walls. 50 per cent, or two thousand. of these federal convitts could be put to work immediately building highways in the national park s and fore-t oeserves of this nation. These two thousan d men could be employed year in and year out at such work by putting them at grading work in the summer time and at rock work in mountain canyons, such as wareare now doing in olo rado, in the winter time. r These two tthousand men could earn $5,000 per day at this work. ,r 0'1,530,000 per year. Work worth $2.50 per day per man would not cost the government to exceed 40 cents per day for the keep of each man, and would furnish healthy outdoor work for conviets. This would redeem and reform about 80 per cent of them, and there is fifty years' work ahead for all of the men the government could possibly put at this so rt 'of work. Senator Shafroth of Colorado has introduced such a hill in congress and it is to be hoped that the nation will see fit, instead of locking its federal prisoners up in prnisons and allowing them to degenerate on account o-f lack of work, to take advantage of a law such as above mentioned and put these men at work developing the most wonderful system of natural parks in the world. Not only could these men construct roads in the national parks and forest reserves, but could build military roads where necessary. With the scarcity of labor now prevailing, it seems a burning shame that the tax payers of the nation should have to maintain so many able-bodied men in idleness when these men should he bettering their own condition and enriching the nation by outdoor work as above outlined. SRecall For Public Officials Reduces the Number of Undesirable Candidates Before election it is xirtuallv imnpossible for the voters to know the fitness of andidates. Even business men with good facilities for seleet ing carefully their employees, make mistakes and have to discharge many because it is impossible to know what an applieant will amount to until actually on the job. The humiliation of being discharged keeps most men from applying for a position they know they cannot fill. But if a tman can just get elected to a public office he is safe for the term of that ofice whether or not he is satisfactory to the voters who hired him. Hence the usual crop of undesirable candidates. With such a blind and blundering system of hiring our public officials there should be some direct mean; of discharging the undesirable ones, other than at the regular elections. Whenever the people find themselves being "stung" by one of their officials. thai- should be able to call a special election and by majority vote remove him from office. Business men who insist upon the right to discharge utndesirale agents should logically believe in the people having the right to recall undcsiralhle public ofli.ials. The recall is very satisfactorv to the cities whwh have it because crooks atnd in(impctnts do not campaign for an oi.e in whict they can not be crooked and in,:petent. Women Should Be Ready for Emergency. By ELLEN SPENCER MUSSEY, Honorary Dean of Washington College of Law. When men are called to take up arms in defense of country and home, the women should be able to support and guide the families so that the home, are maintained and the children educated. No man can give his whole strenith to the defense of the country if he knows that his home ' will suffer in a material way by his absence. Next, women must be able to perform in the industrial and commer. Ial world the work laid down by the soldier citizens who have gone to I the front.

II iFloor Plan. horses will not be warm enough if only two are stabled. If, for any reason. the stable is too large, It Is a good plan to fill it up with cows during the win ter for the reason that without heat there is no ventilation. Of course, It is not wise to design the barn with the Intention of housing horses and cows together in the same stable. If they are in the same building, the horse stable and the cow stable should be definitely separated. The best posst ble scheme is to have horses and cows in separate buildings. If possible, a horse barn should con tain a carriage room which will be reasonably free from dust. Every man who has a good horse should have a rig which will be a credit to him. Even now in the day when farmers are buy ing automobiles to do most of their "running around " the horses and car riage has its important place. What is true of the buildings, the machinery and the farm wagons is also true of the carriage-the appearance is one means by which people judge the char acter of the owner. The farmer owes it to his family to provide horses, har ness and vehicles which will present a good appearance on the public road. All horse stables should be well ven tilated. The problem should be worked out for each particular stable in order that the best possible conditions may be obtained. Every farmer knows that there is a great difference in stables with respect to their ventilation. Some stables are, built so that it is impos sible to keep them clean. The smell of inmmonia is always present and when the doors are closed it is very disa rreo'ble. ViWheni a valuable horse is placed in such a stable it can hard ly be expected that the health of the animal will not be effected even by breathing the foul air only one night. Horses are the most expensive ani mals on the farm and the most suscep tible to disease; hence, the first con sideration In a stable should be to pro mote the health of the horses. A horse stable should be cool and airy in the summer and it should be warm and well ventilated in the win ter. The floor should be made in such a manner that it will not absorb the liquids to pass down beneath the loor, there to ferment and eventually pol lute the air throughout the buildln.

Beauty of Gay Head. Examination of the brightly hued cliffs of Gay Head on the island of Martha's Vineyard, Mass.. with the ob ject of taking about 100 acres around the lighthouse for a state reservation. has been begun by the Massachusetts waterways and public Innds commis sion. Hitchcock In his geology of Mas sachusetts says: "The height of the cliff (Gay Head) from the shore Is 150 feet. with a richness of color that ren ders it a striking and even splendid ob ject from the ocean. The clays are red. blue and white: the sand white and yellow, and the lignite black. All of these are arranged individual strata without much order. There is nothing to compare with it In New England." Cloudy Film on Furniture. There is a cloudy white ilm with a blue tint in It that sometimes per slsts in spreading itself over the pol ished woodwork of our furniture. it appears on the piano case frequently, or perhaps shows more readily there because of the extent of smooth sur face. But fortunately there is a simple remedy for this state of things-Just to wash the wood with warm water and white sonap and dry it off well. Then use a mixture of one-third of turpen tine to two-thirds of crude oil; dip a very soft cloth in this, squeeze it out, and rub the wood surface with it. until not a trace of the application remains. The blue-white film will all have disap peared. Add Querulous Queries.
