A remarkable scene, took place in the legislature of Arizona this spring when the lawmakers enthusiastically voted for the parole of a certain convict in the state penitentiary, granting him a leave of absence for thirty days and by means of private contributions raising a fund to defray his expenses to Washington, D. C, and return. The prisoner. Koy .1. Meyers, is serv ing a three and a half year sentence, but in spite of the fact that he bear the stigma of a convicted law breaker, he has demonstrated that a convict can be a useful member of society. During his imprisonment he perfected an electrical device of fiuii original character as to arouse feelings of wonder and skepti cism until experts had seen it in actual operation. Jt is a device to draw elec tricity from tlie atmosphere for light and power, ami tlie thirty day parole was granted in order that the inventor might protect his rights through the patent office at Washington. U Itli the acquiescence of the legisla ture. Governor Hunt granted the parole and the prisoner was allowed to go free without any guard or any assirrance but his word of honor that he would return. Two days before the period elapsed, .Meyers again presented himself before the governor, having accomplished his mission, and then returned to the peni tentiary at Florence, where he continues to serve bis sentence. " This, in brief, is the picturewpie story which has called attention of the civil ized world to a newly discovered electri cal genius, and to another feature of the case which is of equal importance and human interest; namely, the enlight ened policy pursued by our youngest state in its treatment of convicts. Meyers' chance came when (Governor George W. H. Hunt chose as superin tendent of the penitentiary at Florence a man of very different tvpe from tho political hanger-on who too often fills melt a position. "liig Hob Sims was a hus-iness man of advanced views, and was chosen for the position 'because of lus knowledge of human nature and his executive ability. One of the progressive steps he took was to abolish tho stripes in the peni tentiary, and to adopt a much less rigor ous confinement of the inmates. The "honor system" with the co-operation of Governor 1 Hint, was inaugurated. Pefore entering the prison, Meyers had already applied for various pa tents, among them one for an improved trol ley head wMch prevents the trolley wheel from jumping the wire. Mevers had a conference with Superintendent iims and Parole Clerk Sanders, and it was to these gentlemen that the in ventor first explained the principle of his new device for securing electrical energy from the air. The officials were willing to give the man an opportunity to develop his plan and a little wooden building outside the walls was turned o.ver to Meyers and was fitted up as a workshop and a laboratory. The first demonstration of the new apparatus was made shortly thereafter, the elec tricity drawn from the atmosphere being used to spark the gas engines of the pump house, and although the device was crude yet it did the work and removed- the doubts of his friends. Fur ther development of the "absorber" fol lowed, and hLs second model was con structed, and developed eight vol J a.

A woman twenty yearn old. wltlv. urttallo tastes, capricious, fond of I coif, lawn n-iinia and dancing, to act a I secretary." 1 1 "Singular." mild the mother thought-'t fully, "Hint the ndvertlser, whom I j j suppose to be a num. nays nothing ; ubout beauty." i Since MInh Hewlett won looking for J; a position she answered the ndvertlse-! j nient nnd wan invited 10 can, wincu bIio did In the company of her mother. She found u muu of thirty-five, serious, reticent and nppnrently lu tola right mind. "I need also," snhl the ndvertlser, t Mr. Dudley Vinton, "a housekeeper. If I Mm. Hewlett will take up her real- j deuce hero with you In my apartments, j filling tlint position, I will pay each a j handsome salary. Pardon me for being j no frauk, but It la better that I should I say In ndvniice that love or mutriinony has nothing to do with my Intentions." The offer was accepted, and mother nnd daughter went to live In Mr. Vlu ton's apartments. From the first he treated them an gueats, though Miss i Hewlett was occasionally called upon to write a note or a letter or copy some p&pers relating to property. At the end of the flrst month Mr. Vinton paid the salaries and said that he would be glad to continue the arrange ment indefinitely. Louise pouted. She filled tho terms of the advertisement. Another month passed. Mr. Vinton was absent occasionally, sometimes by ! day, sometimes in the evening. Once ! or twice be was away several days to- j gether. What called him where he! went or what he did be never told, j Louise was piqued and delicately hint-! ed that soiu" reference to these nb- j senees would lie at least civil. She did i not like to be treated like a child or an entire stranger. Mr. Vinton failed to ! satisfy her curiosity, whereupon she tossed her head and declared that it was high time such a ridiculous ar rangement was terminated. Mr. Vin ton made no comments upon her action. Indeed he seemed to be rather pleased with It, egging her on to more of tho same kind. Finally she became angry and ended the Interview In tears. One morning a delicate little missive came for Mr. Vinton which fell Into Louise's hands. . She took It to him and watched him while he read it. His countenance was not to be read. Plac ing the note In his pocket, he went to his room, and soon after Louise saw him go out with a suit case. "Just what I expected." she said. "That note contained an Invitation. He's gone to the country to visit some J girl he's In love with." j Vinton remained away a week. When I he returned. Loutse asked him when he intended to be married. "I am not engaged." be replied. They were sitting In the library at the time, and Vinton took up a book. Louise tried In vain to keep tier tongue in her head. Finally she could endure the silence no longer nnd asked a number of Inadmissible questions. Some of them Vinton answered, others be parried, while others he received in silence. But not for a moment did he manifest any dissatisfaction with her for attempting to pry Into his affairs. Finally he tohl her that he had been to see an lnvnlid who had died during! bis absence. Louise arose and strode out. Vinton called her back.

Mie went out At the end of the yenr Vinton Invit ed mother and daughter Into tho li brary and announced to them that he desired to terminate their present ar rangement. "And now." he continued, address ing Louise, "I will satisfy your curiosi ty. A yenr ago I wished to make a very advantageous match. The lady's characteristics I descrllied In my ad vertisement. I am a theorist and have a theory about women. It Is that If a man wishes to know what a woman will do under certain circumstances ho must infer that she will net exactly contrary to what he would expect. I desired to test this theory and if It proved a law I would apply It to the lady I wished to marry and thus en- j hance my chances of success. During the pnst year I have applied the test j to yon seventy-eight times, and yon have fulfilled the conditions sixty-nine : times. Tou will readily see the advnn- 1 tnge of having two women of like ' characteristics, the .one to practh-e upon, th other" At this point In the theorist's exposl- ! tlon of his methods Louise arose from j her sent and was sailing majestical'y out of the room when Vinton caught her about the waist and held her. i "Darling." he snld. changing his tone, "there Is one result of the experiment j yet to be told. The practice piece ie- enme the object piece, and the object piece hns passed from the problem. ' The Invalid who died while I was away was the. girl I was endeavoring to win.
