Ficks Power from the Air.
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.

"Good gracious, mnriiiua," wild Miss
Louise Hewlett at the breiikfast table,
"Just listen to this:
"Wanted. 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
"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. I
"If you don't mind," he said, "I am !
curious to know what has offended i

"Thank yon very much." 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. We never became more than ,
strong friends, and while I was plan
ning for the sdvnntaces that wenld
hnve a -crued in marrying her I wi
falling In lore with you."
