Deputy Warden Suliivan, was another one of the busy men around the institu tion last Monday. The Sunday attendance at the Chapel ser vice was unusually large last Sunday. We are glad to see it thus.

Warden Reed and his secretary, Mr. Desautels, held the usual monthly inter views with a large number of inmates last Friday. Our genial officei, Mr. Westby, was absent from the printery Monday forenoon while preparations for the night crew were being made. Duke has become quite attached to the boys employed on the Mirror. She nevers fails to pay us a visit at least once a day, and sometimes oftener. The Second Biennial Report of the State Board of Parole is completed. It is a splendid piece of work and one the boys may well feel proud of. Ass’t Deputy Whelan who was confined at his home for ten days with a severe attack of tonsolitis, reported to duty last Monday. Glad to see you back again, Deputy. The choir is in need of a few more sing ers. Kindly submit your name to the Professor. Several Basso or Baritone sing ers would be duly appreciated. Whistle. The cell change epidemic found its way on our gallery and we are rooming else where. Please note list of changes on this page and route your reading matter accord ingly. The Washington County Better Farm ing Association were guests of Warden Reed today. Jan. 28. Music and enter tainment was provided by the Choir and orchestra boys. An additional night crew in the twine shop was placed on the job last Monday. Some night hawk, in additional crew; kindly get busy, and tell us what you are doing the same as Frank is doing. The Choir boys, under the able instruc tion of Professor Schmidt, have improved in their singing wonderfully, and it is a pleasure to hear them sing at all times, since the Professor took charge of Choir. Quite a large number of cell changes have been made this week. If you do not get your papers from the Minor office in the same double-quick time as here-to-fore do not kick about the service: Y’understand? Mr. Macintosh,and his able assistants, have been very generous with the flowers of late. F.very department in the Main build ing is adorned by flowers of every kind and color. This makes it appear a little more home like to all. Thanks, Mr. Florist. Night Guard, Mr. LaNore has again re turned to duty in Cellhall B, after several night’s rumination in Cellhall A. Mr. Fitz- Gerald, who acted as night guard during Mr. LaNore's absence, has returned to his post of duty as Night-watchman of the shops and yard. Mr. Professor — and boys—you have the appreciation of all for your Sunday treat of music. Come again. Music and the Movies go hand in hand with us; and we would rathes hear the music, and see the movies than hear or see anything else—unless, possibly, a parole. Mr. Nelson, of the tailoring department, has a system of keeping up the numerous supplies that his department is called upon to furnish, which we doubt can be equalled by any other department. No matter what an order calls for he is always able to fill it promptly. On the editorial page appears an exception ally interesting as well as instructive Chau tauqua paper which was read before the circle at their Sunday meeting. The sub ject is very ably handled by its author, and we hope you will all find it worthy of serious thought. Read it, everybody. Cellhall Captains, Mr. Broostrom and Mr. Vollmer, were two busy men hereabouts last Monday when the cell change bee in vaded our peaceful and quiet city. Ail that Mr. Broastrom would say was; “I’m very tired.” Mr. Vollmer evidently saw us coming, so we cannot record his verdict. The State Board of Control held a special meeting at the institution last Monday, Mr. Vasaly and Mr- Swendsen being present. After business matters had been transacted, the two members made a pleasant call at the printorium, library, tailor shop, and visited several other departments before re turning to St. Paul. We have something good in store for our many readers, which will take life within the course of two weeks. Aside from the able writers we now have on the staff, two more have at our request, decided to give us something along the scientific line. Both are able writers and we can assure you tftat they will give us all something to ponder over Captain Alexander says he has not even as much as received a cigar from the Mir ror force for carrying the contributions and subscriptions to our sanctum. Guess he is right about that, all right, ail right. He surely has been on the jump of late, and he has our sympathy as well as our heartfelt thanks, with an extra “much obliged to «•«•! ” ,a« an assurance of our appreciation. you,” as an assurance of our appreciation. NOTES FROM SHOP A By A. O. N, Good Bye, W. you are gone but not for gotten. This system will change to Manila (600 foot) on the first of the month. Mr. E. C Williams escorted a few per sonal friends thru our shop last Friday. Our Parole Agent Mr. Whittier, was seen taking a few friends thru this shop last Saturday. Master Bob Williams in company with another boy friend was a caller last Satur day afternoon. Thanks, W. S., for the “Christian Her ald.” We appreciate your kindness very much, and will try to reciprocate. If I shirk today's task 1 shall be adding to my wasted yesterdays, therefore I must endeavor to use my time and opportunity to prepare my self for the future. The prices on binder twine for the season of 1915 are as follows: Standard 500 feet to the pound, 7 cts. per pound; Sisal (white) 500 feet to the pound, 7 cts. per pound; Manila 600 feet to the pound, 9A cts, per pound; Pure Manila 650 feet to the pound, 11 cts. per pound. All f. o. b. Stillwater. These prices are three fourths of a cent per pound on the Standard and Sisal and one half cent per pound on the Manila below last year's prices, the price on pure Manila is the same as last year. TAILOR SHOP AND LAUNDRY By JEqui) Animo —4034 The star of HOPE shines brighter day by day. O, Be Joyful! not miserable, and thank ful that things are not worse. Supt. Williams escorted a party of friends through this department last Friday. The book merchant favored us with a volume from “Peggy.” We sure enjoy ed it immensely. Some more please. Friend H. S. McD., we miss you very much and trust you will be able to resume your seat in the Harmony Club ere long. Abe of the clothing department says, “Nothing doing this time, but next month sure. I should worry.” That’s the sys tem; always have hope and you’ll win. I say Paddy, have the famous Green Sox signed up tor the coming season which opens in only two months? How about the new uniforms and outfit? The coin is burn ing holes in our pockets. Big Chief Likumstew is wearing the big broad smile that always accompanies the re ceipt of a glory ticket. “Goingto raiseum whiskers soon,” he says. Both band and choir will miss you as well as the Mirror staff. Good luck scout. We note from the editorials of the Still water Gazette, that the essential adjunct to insure the life of a newspaper is that it must contain several good paying “adito r ials” in order to insure circulation of the editorials. We reckon they overlooked the Mirror in its 27th year when summing up. Are we right? Prof. Schmidt has been rehearsing the orchestra this week with the several solists and the chorus of thirty, prepatory to the entertainment given today to the Washing ton County Better Farming Association, as guests of Warden Reed. We all endeav ored to the best of our ability to make this occasion a success and a pleasant one for our friends. We trust that the members of the association feel that the hours spent here were pleasant, as well as instructive, as it vs as an exceptional opportunity to be come better acquainted with the industrial development and also to enable them to realize what efforts are being put forth that have a tendency to advance the welfare of the inmates of this institution along educa tional and vocational lines, and also improve their moral and physical well-being. OFFICERS’ DINING ROOM By D. 4619 Officer Philbrooks is on the sick list The ass’t dishwasher says, “not yet, but sostn.” Rev. Benson delivered a splendid sermon last Sunday morning. House Steward Westlund is the busiest man in the institution. Say 444-A, I live in the detention ward, what about exchange papers? Warden Reed entertained the members of the Board of Control at a 12 o’clock lunch eon Monday Jan. 25th. PICKUPS AND PUNCHES By Uncle John The drill was again postponed last Sun day morning on account of too much cold. Christian Science service was held in the Auditorium last Sunday with the usual at tendance. Master Fitzgerald of the front office, was in the Auditorium with a gentleman friend last Saturday. State Agent Whittier escorted a party of friends thru the various departments last Friday including the greenhouse and hos pital. Master Horace Whittier escorted several friends around last Friday, and made a short pause in the Auditorium and admired the scenery. Several new songs have been received by Prof. Schmidt, which are the latest craze of the whole country; “Orches tra Rag” is a beauty. Supt. Williams of the twine department showed a party of friends thru the institu tion last Friday and they inspected the whole place from«A. to Z. The road monkeys were kept very, very busy tor several days during the week in shoveling snow, and it looks so now as if we are going to have some more. Warden Reed held his monthly inter views with the inmates at the Deputy War den’s office last Friday, and as usual the line of inmates seeking an interview was a good sized one. As we are writing our weekly report, there comes the familiar sound, tick, tick, tick. I guess it must be Paddy writing a tick. 1 guess it must be Paddy writing a letter to his Molly O; telling her: ‘darling if you don’t get this, let me know.’ Supt. Ross of the Farm Machine depart ment was in the Auditorium several times during the week with friends. Mr. Ross is very fond of Irish music, and we are more than glad to accommodate him. Come a gain, please. The Chautauqua meeting in the school room last Sunday was a good one. Three new members being on the program, and the papers were very good indeed. Too bad we did not have more time for discus sing the last one. We understand that the president of the Circle and the editor had a little politi cal conversation in regard to papers and other political matter to be published in the Mirror. Aha, now we know why a cer tain individual is taking physical exercise. Captain Alexander’s two sons were in the dining hall last Sunday during eating time, and they are looking so exactly alike as on ly two twins can look, and yet they are not. We have seen them grown up from little boys to noble manhood, but we nev er saw' the likeness so much before. The Captain has reason to feel proud of his boys. The President announced last Sunday that the second Quarterly meeting of the Chautauqua Circle w ill be held in the near future and that he will not spare time or money to make it the best that has ever been held in this or any other institution of like kind. The President is assured of several good speakers. The orchestra will do its share, and we are sure those who are selected to write papers will do their best. We see no reason why we should not pull off a program worthy to be remembered by all here. A NIGHT OWL’S SCREECHES By Frank Yes and the anvil chorus has also started working nights. Eli is roping at present in place of F., who is on the sick list. Officer McKenzie showed a lady through the shop Friday evening. Thankie Chief, same to you, better days are soon in store for both of us. F., who formerly ran a set of spinners is roping bales as a steady occupation. A new member was added to the night crew and is doing the up and down on the ball roller. Starting Monday another crew was added to the night brigade, they will operate System No. 2. Ye scribe's alfalfa crop is of the thin growing variety. However, “Hope springs eternal” etc, etc. The day oiler of F managed to get a hold of a small scale somewnere. Fine work, Jimmie, just what we needed. Is foreman Lesh still on the job Eddie? or was he lost in that recent blizzard we had. Haven’t seen him lately. The machinery in the rope room has been treated to a coat of paint and its appearances is greatly improved thereby. L. 8., of the preparation room is tem porarily on the bailers in place of the regular man who has been assigned to other duties. The night chef is there all right, he evidently has had considerable experience in stewing tasty dishes and pie every other night. Get that Sherlock? Owing to the increase in the owl brigade they have put another row of benches in the dining room. Quite a family now who sit down to the banquet at 11:30 P. M. CHAPEL PROGRAM The following is the Program rendered in the Auditorium last Sunday, Rev. Ben son officiating: March.. Under the Double Eagle..Orch’tra Holy, Holy, Holy Cong. Invocation Chaplain Gloria Cong. Scripture Chaplain Hymn Jesus is Calling Cong. Prayer Chaplain Anthem.. The Harbor Bell White Choir Vocal Solo.. Face to Face._Mem. C. Choir Sermon Chaplain Hymn God be with you Cong. Benediction Chaplain March Apple Blossom Time Orch’tra Albert Schmidt, Musical Director. LE BLANC CHOIR MESSIEURS By Monsieur Rue The Christan Science service was fairly well attended on Sunday last. Mistah Langford was sublime in his solo “Face to Face.” “Ah fer sure did mah best” said he. The balcony of the auditorium was al most vacuous. The ineptitude of the weather was the obvious cause. “An’ d' ye moind, Baron,” quoth Le Marquis Connoly, “ th’ Tipperary song, ’tis th, foinest in th’ w-u-r-l-d bedad.” One cannot help bat laud the amicable Beau Esprita for his zealous efforts toward the choir. This palladium wrote all the chorus paraphernalia for the entertainment, a cursive flood of diaphoretic was observed gushing down his curvated nasal organ to wards the floor. LA OPERA MISERABLE Let us collate the metaphysics of the operatic neophite whose fragile tact at the opportune moment will at all times meta morphose success to subvert. The colon of mental grandeur environs with prehensile alacrity, as he cites the three C’s: calm, cool, and collected. “Pshaw, an infallible panacea,” solilo quized he, and to verify his statement, he chants the lyric thru with inveterate enra vishment, until the sineput of the Christo pher Columbus picture which hangs upon the wall of his ‘third room back’ seems an imated with fructiferous encouragement. Methodically the ‘Night of Nights’ has ar rived, and he is unequivocally elated, for, is this not the time when interestellar re sults will install him with vertical acclivity? The house is packed to its utmost capac ity, the overture which explicates the can erous synopis of La Opera has been played in a masterly manner, and the phasis of the play is eagerly looked for. “Your turn next,” announces Billy Buttons, the call next, announces tsiny mutons; me can boy to our hero. 'Tis the critical moment of desideratum, and as a vocal praxis he gives vent to a boisterous halloo, which apparently peregrinates the atmosphere at an alarming rate. Vertigo and nausea ap pear consecutively, soporific yawns fill the hiatus. It is the beginning of the end. He reels toward the center of the stage in similarity to a noctambulist, with spas modic baton the condutor gives him his cue, it is the defoliation, he has had his inital and it is his finale. Moral:- Faith is predominant in every sphere of life. STANZA Brave the storm with firm endeavour, Let your vain repinings go. Hopeful hearts will find forever Roses underneath the snow. NOTES FROM SHOP E By M. S. M. If you can’t be good, be as good as you can. F. is back in this shop after being on the sick-list. J. G. was assigned a line of spinners Saturday. There is still room for several new mem bers in the Chautauqua Circle. The man who helps himself is not always the man that has what he wants. There has been another new man added to the bailer force during the past week. A. J. was transferred from this shop to the machinery department during the past week. Deputy Sullivan and Supt. Williams were interviewing some of our spinner hands last Saturday. WOOD SHOP SHAVINGS By Slim “Step lively” was nailing wind shields the other day. Singletrees and eveners have started to come forth. Yellow pine rollers are being piled up to dry in shop O. Hereafter, the Norske will be known as “the band-saw artist.” Pop suffered from toothache the other day but he stuck to his work; he is never off the job. Rip Sawdusterson has his hands full now; you should see him handle the large oak planks with ease. We enjoyed the pleasure of talcing dinner with Sully, last Thursday, and we take pleasure in announcing that he is a likeable chap and a good entertainer as well. Mowe, one of the proficient men of this department, has just completed a tool-chest that we pronounce exceptionally fine, and believe that if same were purchased outside, it would demand a good price. SPARKELS FROM SHOP D. Bp C. R.—4234 This is my first attempt One of our men is in the hospital Just to think of it 1,350 spools of twine Not a word —another night crew, 'tis said. Don't forget that today is the time, and not tomorrow. M., says 1 have “de trop" in French Too much or enough. 17,000 pounds every day, everybody hustles in our shop, and it’s some clean at that. CHAUTAUQUA SECRETARY'S REPORT The Circle met as usual Sunday after noon and listened to a very enjoyable pro gram. Mr. A. B. C. lead the program with a paper on “Minnesota” of the very highest historical value. Any attempt to describe this paper would be unjust to the writer, as he has set forth his facts so con cisely, and treated his subject so compre hensively that comment is unnecessary. When Mr. C’s paper is published in the Mirror it will well repay close and consider ate study. Mr. E. M. read the second paper on the program, “Icebergs of the North Atlan tic,” and treated his subject with thorough knowledge, showing the dangers to com merce and overseas travel from these vag rants of the high seas. The paper abound ed in data covering the sources, forma ation, and erratic movements of sea ice in the north Atlantic waters. The third paper was by Mr. Z. on “Rus- sia and its People;*' a scholarly effort, carefully prepared and excellently delivered. Discussion of Russia and things Russian is, as a rule, all one sided; and more especi aly so among the English speaking peoples. In view of this fact it is very gratifying to listen to or read an essay so admirably balanced as that with which Mr. Z. favored the Circle. Owing to lack of time, the Critic's re port was brief, but was full of the snap and vim which Mr. J. M. always infuses into his criticisms. Entertaining discussion of all these pa pers was extensively indutged in; the pro gram as a whole making this meeting one of exceptional value to all present. Adjournment." J. R. F. GOBS AND DAUBS By O'L. We notice Prof. Mooney and his crew are steadily piling up canvasses in shop P. Beau is our efficient, official roller-tester and he is some there at straightening out rods. ** Did you ever see a Kansas cyclone? It is nothing compared with Sammy and an old broom. Now, is it? Reel-arms are being put up daily and stored in shop P. until seat-boards start. Levers, which are also packed with the seat-boards are being finished by the hundreds. Don’t a fellow feel cheap when he has tc sit with the “dummy gang?” He can eat more "tis true, but what’s that compared with a chance for “blowing off steam” and being normal for twenty minutes. Binder attachments will soon make their appearance. A spraying machine will be used to give them the coat of primer, and the parts showing above the decks will be color-varnished. Two men will be able to handle the paint end, two the packing, two the crating, and one building the crates, the crating, and one building the crates. B. and O. NOTES By Otto Mobile “A man who doesn’t like music is hope lessly lost.” Unknown. Nil desperandum will compose a song en titled ,‘The Chapel Twins.” It's bound to be a big hit, Accent the hit. The orchestra will soon start to work up the musical program for the Chautauqua Circle’s quarterly meeting to be held in the near future. The orchestra left their suppers on the outer balcony last Sunday while playing at dinner. Clint surmised that Duke would enjoy it immensely if she happened to come visiting. Customer: “Have you a house situated five miles from any habitation?” Agent: “Yes sir. Going to practice the simple life, I suppose.” Customer: “Nope! the trombone.” No millionaire offering a new viola has made himself heard, and no specialist has prescribed for the ailments of aforesaid “fiddle,” Otto M. has started negotiations for the purchase of a “rare old viola, for sale cheap.” W’e await returns. The entertainment afforded Warden Reed’s guests today, was composed of local talent, entirely, consisting of the orchestra and white and colored choirs. The solists were Kubelik, Tom S. and Frank M., sing ing and scoring big hits in “That Orchestra Rag,” “Sunshine and Roses,” and “It’s a Long Way to Tipperary,” respectfully, being assisted by the large male chorus. Prof. Schmidt wrote the orchestra arrange ment for the songs. SHOP H TWISTERS B V E. M. W anted —An honest man. Whoa! Wait a minute and don't crowd. Deputy Sullivan was around Saturday selecting men for night work. Shorty, our mascot has been detailed for night work on the bailers. Wanted —One first class bale sewer. Steadv work guaranteed. Apply to shop H. G.. our one time baler, had added an “1” to his job s name, by becoming a bailer. The Pirate has returned from a short stay on the famous Little Round Top. We are glad to see you are well again, mate. Foreman I.esh looks as though he might have been trying to pull a cat's tail, judging by the looks of his hands. But believe me, it was no cat, for I was there and saw the scratching done. Bad luck comes in bunches. First three days of the week I was sick, then just as the “dopey" feeling fades away before the onslaught of Dr. Newman's pills, I tried to break a thumb. And once more it is a visit to the M. D. Old Gent—My boy, why is it that the people of this country celebrate George Washington's birthday and do not celebrate mine? Boy—George Washington never told a lie Old Gent —Oh! 1 see.

BRICKBATS AND POSIES By Uncle Goghdingit _ 4G58 If Justice is blind, we would like to see it recover its sight. If ‘ignorance is bliss,’ why inflict educa tion on the blissful!? “Live and let live,” seems to be unpopu lar in Europe these anxious times. If one is brot to where one has to choose between two evils, why not renege? Why grieve about the long ago when it is better to choose a go along instead? The lanuginous upper lip is multitudin ating within the intra mural domecile. Heaven is far nearer the one who culti vates a smile than the one that fosters a whine. Thank you in advance for your contin uing kind favors Mr. M., Joe, and Uncle J. and others. The posuetr is about as welcome to our intra-mural landcape as a wet snow ball at the base of the neck. Yes, the base-ball season for our Green Sockers will open after the leaden flight of only 190,000,017 seconds. Hooroo! The slippery sidewalk has a monopoly over the malicious banana peeling these days in promoting the surpriseful sudden ness of sitting postures. We often hear the report “thev failed to follow up their success;”—that is chival ry, for even Success, it seems, wouid tire of being followed continuously. When asked her choice between caviare and limburger as a delcatessen, Duke indig oji» t Ko w i nantly flounced out of the printorium with a sobbing, wheezeful bark, which meant: “I'm neutral!” The German fellow-inmates in cell hall B, to whom 1 sent German papers thru the kindness and courtesy of o'her fellow-in mates, will pardon the discontinuance of the favors, as B-6 has been transferred to cell hall A. No. 380. AND A LITTLE GIRL LED HIM TO RIGHT (Continued from first pasre) found in my struggles that a few moments of silent communion, with the distant children was quite sufficient to dispel any notion l may of had of giving away’ to my base desires. “And so it w’as in little less than a year after my arrival in C—, I awoke to the fact that I had been able to conquer my worst enemy, Strong Drink- And in doing so. 1 had been enebled, to make a fairly large cii cle of respectable and influential acquaint ances, and last, but by all mean s of equal importance, if not more, a few good friends. And of these the little Girls who had been the cause of my reformation, were now my inseperable companions, “It was thru the same dear kiddies that I met the lady who was to become my wife. It was a bright warm afternoon in late fall and as the Kiddies had gone to Sunday School I decided to walk part of the way to meet them. So we could have a stroll in the Park and enjoy the band concert, that was always given there on Sunday after noons. I had almost reached the church before I met them, and were accompanied by a young lady whom they introduced, she it appeared was their teacher, a Miss F—. I explained to them the way 1 had planed to spend the balance of the day, as the idea was agreeable to all we set off together. “Miss F., on further acquainted, proved to be a very sincere Christian and I have always felt that I owe much to her for the ready friendship and sympathy which she gave me from the first; and today I believe that her tactful help and prayers had as much influence if not more than anything else in bringing me to seek Christ s help, to over-come my faults and to guide me throughout my future life. In saying this I don’t for a minute pretend that the part in my reformation and redemption brought about by the tw r o little children were anv way less; for you must remember it was they who began the work, sewed the first seed and showed me the way to where I was ready and anxious to get aid from above. And it was God’s will that the one chosen by Him should later become my wife, and thus thru His divine power be by my side throughout my future journey in this world. I felly believe we will be together in the j life to come.” Now, boys, it has taken me a little longer than I thought to give you Dick's story. But I believe it is worth the time it took to tell it, for we can all become nobler men by taking a lesson from this page of Dick's life. God often moves in very mysterious ways and you have heard how, when He was here among mankind, it was the little children who were attracted to him more than their elders. So it seems not only pos sible but very probable that as the children of old could detect the goodness of our Saviour, those of today can in a like man ner pick out and bring to the surface the best there is in us Sinners. “Suffer the little children to come unto Me and forbid them not, for of such is the Kingdom of Heoven.” * Cell Changes Up to January 23 All B. - 481-51 116-481 331-90 335-310 90-331.
