Should some of our contributiors find that their articles are not in the Mirror the first week, do not get discouraged. Your article will appear in its turn. Mr. and Mrs. Theo. Young of Hudson, Wis., were prison visitors in company with Mrs. T. W. Alexander, one day last week. Capt. Alexander acted %s escort to party. No. 4605—We do not get on exchange any papers from the state of Maine. We will see to it, however, that you have other reading matter sent to you from the Mir ror’s exchange list. —Ed. There were three splendid papers read before the Chautauqua Circle of Sunday af ternoon, and especially were they well worded, concise and replete with real tacts and grammatical construction. It has been my privilege to hear a woman scream at the sight of a mouse. But I’ll doff my bonnet to the guy who sat beside me at last Saturday’s game, when little Jones made that double play. Heliograms has gone. Capt. Alexander informs us that tvrenty-one years ago he “locked up” Heliograms. When he de parted a week ago, Capt. Alexander opened , the door to freedom for him. Good luck, Heliograms. Ex-Secretary Hart, of Chicago, was a pleasant caller at the institution Saturday last. Mr. Hart was secretary for seventeen years to the Board of Charities and Cor rections. Capt. Alexander pointed out the various places of interest to him. As a party of visitors passed through the main hall last week, a young lady was heard to remark: “Isn’t that a splendid looking fellow?’’ Now all the printers are trying to find out who she meant, even Stonewall Jackson looks in the glass several times a day. Rev. Jay Scott Budlong, 3125 Portland Ave. M'pls., and who was the first chaplain the new prison ever had —paid the Mirror office a very pleasant call Tuesday. He is a friend to every man behind prison walls and has a hand shake, smile for every one. Rev. Budlong was in attendance at the Pris on Congress. Some fast ball playing is expected next Saturday when the fast Hinckley team and Paddy’s “Green Sockers’’ clash on our diamond. And again we earnestly urge you to get busy and do your share of the rooting for the home team as well as an occasional hurrah for the visiting team. Here’s hoping the best team wins. If our readers desire to read something interesting and instructive as well as enter taining, do not forget to keep your eye on “Keene’s Komer. This new man on our staff of contributions, will give our many readers some for thought, he knows how to do it. We salute you, old scout. Let the good work ever go on. We will use all you can give us. On Tuesday a young lady was heard to remark while passing by the Mirror office: “I wonder who that dark complexioned man running the ruling machine can be? I thought a young man named Kal, was in charge of the ruling machine.’’ The other party said: “That is Kal.*’ “Well what do you think of that, and he looks like an old married man at that.’’ Among the noted visitors who came to the institution to hear Mrs. Booth speak in the prison auditorium, Sunday, October 4, were, Albret Garvin, warden of the refor matory in Connecticut, Mr. and Mrs. Ralph W. Wheelock, C. J. Swendsen, who with Mr. Wheelock are members of the state board of control. W. H. Cad well, Henry Drum, warden of the state prison at Walla Walla, Wash., and his daughter. Little Falls Board of Parol* OUR LITTLE JOKERS By The Twine Officer Baron is now captain of the Castor Oil squad. Mr. Amidon is still having a (L)oving time so it is claimed. Fainting Bertha seen that the game was lost, so threw a fit, but her work was too course so she could not get by with it. Mr. Rosing and Mr. Whittier report the road between here and Redwing in fine condition; no,don't know if they walked or went by auto. Our dear old friend Heliogram has flew the coop and although we are pleased to see him go, we certainly do miss him and his cheerful ways, and we all join in wishing him good luck. It is claimed that it is easier to pick up a thing sometimes than it is to get away from it. A story is going the rounds that Gen’l. Office Manager Bourne picked up some thing in front of the prison the other day and had to violate the speed law to lose it. Deputy Whalen has purchased one-half interest in the Green Sox ball team. Con sideration not given but it is claimed it reaches well up into the thousands. “I am sure out of luck” said Deputy Backland. “It was only a week ago that I could have bought the whole team for a cancelled post age stamp.” It sure would be some outfit. A canvas of the fans was made last Saturday to see if enough coin could be raised to get a new up-to-date outfit for the Green Sox next year, and seven hundred dollars was sub scribed in ten minutes and real money too, no “ stage stuff;” and now for the per mission to get the lay out. One of the players on the outside team drove a fly ball out towards Jones of the Green Sox, and then dropped his bat and sat down, and when one of the fans shouted to hipi to run it out said: “Wha’s the use its going to fall in a well ” Yes any time you see Jonsie underneath a fly ball you might as well quit running unless you need the exercise. We will have to hand it to Fitz as an umpire. He is sure all to the good and no favor shown to any one, and he has the right spirit. When called up by phone Saturday and asked if he would act as um pire, said: “Sure you can count on me do ing everything I can to help the game along;” but said, ‘‘if you win you will do it by playing, as you don’t want to expect anything but an even break.” Everybody extends their thanks to Mr. Fitz Gerald for the interest he has taken in our sports and hope to see him behind the pitcher regular from now on. GREEN SOX VICTORIOUS By H. S. McD. Last Saturday's ball game between Le Sueur Centre and the Green Sox was one of the most evenly matched and hotly con tested games that was ever played on our local diamond. Le Sueur was first to bat and Thomas, Krava, and Dickinson were all three put out, Thomas being allowed to walk to first but he was unsuccessful in try ing to make second. The Green Sox then came to bat and Wihmi got to first by being hit with the ball, he was put out on second. Grannel ly followed and stirred up the breeze but failed to connect with the sphere. Jones, the lightning short-stop, somewhat evened things up when he laid hold of the big stick, and nothing would satisfy him except a home run, so he went and did it. Vosberg followed Jones to bat and promptly fanned the breeze three times in succession. Thus ended the first inning—score 1 to oin favoi of the Green Sox. In the first half of the second, Jost and Eyrich of Le Sueur, both lifted two baggers, but Jost was the one to score. The Green Sockers failed to tally in their half of the inning and the score was 1 to 1. Thomas. Krava, and Traxlerof Le Sueur scored in the third inning. The Green Sox could not cross the plate and so the score stood 4 to 1 in favor of Le Sueur at the close of the third inning. Neither side scored during the fourth. Le Sueur scored in the fifth and once more the Sockers failed to tally. Score stol in favor of Le Sueur. During the sixth inning Wilson, of the Sox, brought in a score and as Le Sueur failed to cross the plate the score was made 5 to 2 in Le Sueur’s favor. Le Sueur failed to score in the seventh but the terrible Green Sockers got a line on Traxler’s curves, went on a rampage and proceeded to take the bit in their teeth. Page started things by lining out a two bagger, and Lafferty speedily followed after him with a single. Big Chief Scarumpitch er then secured another single bringing Page over the plate. The Big Chief was followed by Lovejoy who swatted out another two-bagger and Lafferty and Big Chief both crossed over the plate. Carlton then grabbed the big stick and not to be out done he ptomptly sent out a fly that netted him two bases and brought Lovejoy home. The fans now proceeded to execute a few steps of every known jig and tango in existence, while whoops and hurrahs in forty different languages resounded from every spot of the prison yard. Wilson then came to bat and was sent to first on balls. Grannelly and Jones then fanned out and Vosberg was struck by pitched ball and limped to first. Page then desperately grabbed a bat and sent out a single on which Wilson scored. Lafferty fanned making the side out. Score Btos in favor of the Sockers. Great was the rejoicing among the fans, for the tide had turned. Le Sueur failed to cross the sack or even to reach first in the eight and the Sockers ran in two more scores just to show that they were still in the game. By the way the Le Seuerites started out in the ninth it looked as though we were in for another trimming, for they made 4 scores the first jump out of the box, ma king the score 10 to 9, and the Socker root ers began to feel shaky, as there were three men on bases and only two men out. Ey rich was last to bat for Le Sueur and the Count succeeded in fanning, and the game closed 10 to 9in favor of the Green Sox, and thus we won the first game we have been able to win from an outside team. We hope we may have the pleasure and the honor of winning many more, and we sure will enjoy a return game with Le Sueur, and we know we voice the sentiments of every inmate of this institution when we say, “Three cheers and a tiger for the Le Sueur Centre boys!” One thing which we have failed to men tioned is the fact that our short-stop, Jones, alone had eleven put-outs credited to him besides making a double play. We call that playing ball. The score by innings is given below for anyone who desires to see what the score Le Sueur Centre 01301000 4 9 Green Sox 10000162 x—lo KIDVERSATIONS By Sherlock A padded cell—Women.

SHOP H TWISTERS By Frank Foreman Lesh is back on the job once more. Nothing like having the boss around when you want him. Owing to choir practice, we did not do any drilling Sunday morning. Well we should worry anyway. Harry, the ball roller missed Saturday’s game owing to a session of the petit jury which he was a member. Everyone is happy is H., except Windy the sack turner, who seems to have hard luck in connecting with a tobacco ticket. Some solicitor is Windy. The writer has listened to good many sermons and discourses, but he never enjoy ed antyhing so much as the words which Mrs. Booth spoke Sunday. It is an oc casion never to be forgotten. It is a great pleasure to see Sherlock’s column of “Kinversations” with its cheer ful humor again. Personally we admire wit of the caustic variety. R. C., is cer tainly the man to put it over when occassion demands it. Here’s to you, friend. Who would think that European war would effect the twine industry, but such is the case. Last week the foreman in Shop G., was obliged to start a different mixture in the Sliver owing to the scarcity of African Sisal. The result is that our bailer men are behind owing to breakdowns, and it became necessary to run the extra bailers in Shop B. WITH POT AND BRUSH By J. R, Some game boys, some game. “Aha!” says the man in blue, “I knew it would work.” Sure, he got a stand. Also, some umpire. Everybody wanted to shake hands with him after the game. Dutch Charley, is preparing the season’s supply of stencils for lettering harvester parts. Two more men were recently assigned to the canvas room, where Prof. M. holds forth as foreman. The shops here are so large it keeps two men busy trucking the work to and from the painters and packers. C. L. K., who claims many years of professional experience, desires to organize a white quartette. Anybody want to join? Draining racks for hay rake wheels are now in process of construction. It is ex pected to start dipping wheels within a short time. Have you noticed the classy job the support painters are doing on the wall? Entirely of fleece of the sheep and 36 inches to selvedge, Eh what? The daily output of mowers has been cut down to about thirty, as the shops are now turning out seventy harvester gear frames each day in addition to the mowers. And now comes the guy who says that U. S. will profit to the extent of a million immigrants a year, after the war. If we believe the press reports there ain’t going to be nobody left to immigrate.

Saxo George the catcher, can be seen any Saturday afternoon giving an exhibition of the Tango, Lame Duck and many other classic dances. Its no use we simply cannot get along without Prof. Bugtrala. The kitchen boat has to weigh anchor every time the Professor wants to smoke.

News reaches the kitchen which promises to make Mr. Doyle happy. An inventor has produced China, which in appearance, is exactly like the proverbial cup and saucer. It is invulnerable. The Garcons pooh pooh the idea, and are skeptical over the matter. Eet ees simple Monsieur Butch, exempli fied La Chef, you take a petit piece of zee melon, then appetite ees bon. It was ob served that Foxy Grandpa La Butch ate a small piece of melon before his dinner, likewise a large piece after dinner—Butch was whistling “Down where the water melons grow,” and eating another dinner, half an hour later. The best way to pass the time, says Harry, Mr. Morrison's clerk, is to place your clock on the center of the table, and keep walking past the clock. You are not only passing time, but doing time, at the same time but, sometimes the gent that calls you in the morning, may be passing you gate the time you are doing time, and passing the time, and, he may say two thirty, to-morrow.—Enough Jawn,go easy. NOTES FROM SHOP E By M. S. Munn. Jim Short is tending spinners at present. Saw friend C. sporting a pair of high water blues the latter part of last week. If the kings and emperors would just consent to do the fighting themselves and leave their armies as home, the world would would join hands and yell, “goto it.” — Ex, Mr. Lesh, foreman of Shop H, reported for duty last Monday with a happy smile. He is to he congratulated, as four of his children have just recovered from scarlet fever, and he expects the quarantine to be lifted in a few days. Have to make my collection on the bet I made on the Green Sox Saturday; so get ready and pay up. Why not take the sermon of the “little Mother" to heart?

Bet your mythologic rocks, For LeSueur Center’s champions Were facing the Green Sox. There is joy in South Stillwater In a thousand thumping hearts, As one swater after swater Benchward on his way departs; Granny sure has got their number, Watch that kiddo mow ’em down! Paddy and his Sox may slumber Peaceful in today’s renown! When the Green Sox get their inning There’s a goose egg on the board All the team is bent on winning Junes has landed one out and scored! Hear Nil Desperandum rooting, “Bally play there, aw my word,’’ As the Big Chief goes a scooting Midst a cloud of dust to third! They have tied us, what’s the matter? There are six more rounds to play! It’s a mighty lucky batter That can hit one safe today! All the Sox are playing hotter Ball than anything in sight, And there’ll be an awful slaughter E’er the whistle blows to night! In the sixth there comes an ending Very pitiful, but true, For their pitcher is ascending Lightly, to the festive blue! And the stuff which upward bore him, With a sudden spark is lit When the seventh man before him Slams one for a three base hit! It’s all over but the shouting We can let them have some now, While we tend the newly sprouting Laurels on the Green Sox’s brow! Give them one good cheer to fleet them, They have played and lost like men We’ll be proud again to meet them— And to beat them once again! PICKUPS AND PUNCHES By Uncle John Come again, Little Mother, we will make it a point to hear you. Master Fitzgerald was in the auditorium with a party of friends last Friday. Mrs. VVolfer with several lady friends were visiting our Silent City last Thursday. Guard Laßue returned from his vacation last Sunday and sure enjoyed his ten days. Asst. Deputy Whelan escorted a party of friends to the hospital and other departments last Friday. Warden Wolfer, Attorney General Smith and Chief Justice Brown paid the library a visit last Saturday. Accounting Clerk McMillan escorted a party of friends around last Thursday and paid the auditorium a visit. Any how we have won a game at last, but it was a close shave. Now for a good game with the Simonets, eh Paddy? Warden Wolfer escorted a of friends through the institution last Thursday, and showed them the hospital grounds. Mr. Cadwell formerly superintendent of the Western Shoe Company was seen on the platform at the auditoiium last Sunday. Jonsie is not large, but he is the only one who made a ring around a rosy; that means, home run, and got there with both feet. Mr. Dessautels escorted a party of person al friends through our institution last Friday and also visited the green house and hos pital. Mr. Michael Colligan former Deputy Warden at the old prison, but now at Sioux Falls, S. D., was a visitor at the prison last Sunday. Well, well, Heliogram and Sinbad are no more among us. We are glad they gained their libetty; we will miss them, but our loss is their gain. Warden Garvin made the remark last Sunday, that there are very few in here who were here 21 years ago, there are quite a good many here now who remember him; among them six guards. We had our first drill last Sunday morn ing, and it sure is a pleasure to march on the new roads. No danger of stepping in a hole and tumble over your neighbor, as we use to do at the old place. NOTES FROM SHOP K By A. C. One of the daubers is painting the wood work ia shop K. The new man dressing Nippers is making good, and turning out some fine work. Mr. George Hill one of the electrician employees, dislocated the thumb of his right hand last Friday, and is on the sick list. Foreman Alex. Anderson, of the farm machinery, had a large board installed in his part of the shop to hang samples on. Officer Glennon had the warehouse crew transferring breaker bars from the H and I basement to this shop last Friday afternoon. The farm machinery department started their boreing machine in motion last week, and the airhoist is lifting a big load every day. Foreman F. J. Buliis, of the machine shop, had a large table installed in his part of the shop on which to assemble the Nip pers as they are dressed. Did some one say that the Rag was going to the Green Socks? If they want to keep their prestige, better not play the Mowers. For the Mowers say they will beat them if they have to get the Tar Baby out there to run for them. TAILOR SHOP AND LAUNDRY By Blue-Eyes A ball in the hand is worth two fumbles in the field. Yesterday is dead —forget it. Tomorrow never comes—don’t worry. Today is here —use it. Several hundred yards of blue-gray cloth have been made up into very neat uniforms and caps. Received duting week several hundred yards of gray woolen flannel, to be utilized in making underwear. “Shure, and Oi tould yez so; Oi knew it was in ’em,” said Paddy, when his Green Sox won the game. Winter uniforms are all ready and will be placed on shelves in the togging shop for distribution within two weeks. It is hard to realize the amount of ma terial it requires to keep this industrial city clothed, and furnished with clean linen. Our genial officer, Mr. Nelson, has been the busiest man hereabouts the past week, making final preparations for the coming winter. Our old friend F. M. has gone after spend ing twenty-two years here and may the best of luck always be with you in your new freedom. The laundry claims to have the best all around trapper inside the walls: Twenty rats, eight sparrows and five frogs to her credit for September. Mr. M. C. Colligan, Deputy Warden, for many years at the old prison and now Deputy at the S. D. prison, was seen about the prison last Sunday shaking hands with old friends. Congratulations to you, Paddy, and your famous Green Sox, but don’t forget, it was the first time both ends of the battery was placed in competent hands, with comenda ble support by the whole team. In our enthusiasm over the Sockers’ vic tory, we were rather careless in hurrying over the green and thereby met with a painful, but not serious accident, which puts us on the list of the lame ducks. Yes, this department is still maintained by the institution; but everybody is so busy we do not have much time for observation. That is the reason that our most worthy Mirror has not contained notes from this department the past few months. We do not understand why some of the inmates insist on wearing their underwear, nightshirts, handkerchiefs and socks, before sending them to the laundry to be properly marked. Do not mark your clothes with writing ink and expect to get them back, as the marks wash out the first time they are washed. B. and O. NOTES By Otto Mobile Duke recently-introduced her friend Miss Toots to the band. See Smith is understudying Butch on the bull-fiddle. We hope he gets a chance to play it, Butch. No, Mignonette, Sherlock didn’t spend hir. vacation at the American Press Humor ist's convention. If everything goes right, the orchestra will be somewhat diminished in the near future. Here's luck, boys. The Count pitched his last game of ball Saturday, for his once dependable right wing has turned to glass. We mourn his obituary. Little Joe has changed from alto to cor net in the band and Johnson has taken up the metophone. The old trombone player is on tenor. At last the carpenters are putting in lock ers and cabinets to keep the instruments in. Smith will now confine his musical abilities to the broomette. Says Nil Desperandum, “Last Sunday I prayed for a piece of pease pie marked with P’s, worth a peso and not baked by a peaceful peasant.” Jawn, head tray, by virtue of being an ex-sailor, beat Props out of the job of shin ing the brass work on the electriolieis in the dining-hall. Posing as Annette Kellermrn on his diving tower, he was class. FOUNDRY NOTES By Doc Officer Laßue and wife were visitors at the foundry one day last week. A new Buffalo Standard Scale is to be installed in the chipping toom. Officer Laßue, of the chipping room re turned Sunday from his vacation. Dr. Newman and some friends were vis itors to our department the past week. One of the large tables for the core room arrived from the old prison the past week. Secretary’s Report, Chautauqua Meeting October 4th 1914. The Pierian Circle, C. L. S. C., nun in regular session Sunday afternoon. I'tie meeting was called to order by Pres M On roll call it developed that seven mem bers were absent, owing to confusion in the manner of getting out of the cell lulls for the meeting. The Secretary would like to say to all of the members, and especially to the new members, that on the days of meetings (every other Sunday) they shuuid go to their cells after dinner and enter with out closing the cell door. If you close door when you enter the cell it is automatically locked. Leave your cap and lunch in ceil and step outside. Then close the door, ami go down the stairway at the end of the cell hall and line up by the Cell Hall Captain s desk. If you comply with these suggestions you will avoid occasioning unnecessary in convenience to the officials by being in line for the meetings, and give the rest of us the pleasure o%our presence, which we sincere ly desire. The meeting Sunday was fairly success ful, but not brilliantly so. The papers vol unteered for this meeting, while well deliv ed, were not quite up to the mark which the Circle wishes to maintain. Mr. J. H. J’s. paper “Does Constitutio nal Prohibition Prohibit?’’ brought out some discussion. This paper was splendidly de livered. “An Experiment In Monarchy,’’ by Mr. Jas. S., read in this members usual forceful manner, was accepted without discussion. The third paper was designedly non-con structive, being a resume of the recent pro gress of the Circle by the Secretary. There was no discussion of this paper. Mr. C. A. R. acting as Critic while that officer appeared on the programme, per formed his duties very happily giving a fair criticism, pointed by good natured reference to Mr. S*s professed ideas of the proper functions of a critic. Mr. S., criticising the remainder of the programme, was freely severe, but fair. Certainly Mr. S.’s criticism is worthy of the name, a fact on which the Circle may well congratulate itself. Motion to adjourn, made, seconded, and carried. NEXT SATURDAY’S GAME Next Saturday’s game of baseball will be played between Paddy’s Green Sox and the fast Hinckley team.
