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.

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.
