A fellow named Mike, sent from the Central Station court for six months, gave a foimer superintendent no end of trouble. Mike was not only a giant in strength, but he had an iron will, the persistency of a bloodhound, and he seemed not to know., what fear was. When received at the prison he was im pudent and boisterous, and had to be punished at once. When taken to the shops to be set at work he threw down his tools and said: If you have got a man in this place who can make me work, just trot him out!" He stood for a day and-a night with one leg chained to the wall, so yjat he must constantly stand on the other, be fore he would go back to the shop, and he had not been at work an hour before he again rebelled. The dark cell had no terrors for him. If they stopped his food he did not mind it. He was coaxed, threatened, punished and talked to, but his only reply was: I tell you I won't do a day's work in the whole six months!" After thinking the case over, the su perintendent ordered Mike to be taken to a lonely underground room in the main building, and in a little while he followed on. Mike wasn't feeling exact ly easy in his mind. The idea of sepa rating him from the prison and conduct ing him to that lonely, far-away room bothered his head. The superintendent was armed with a club, and lie slipped into the room as if he was afraid of being seen. When he had locked the door aud put the key in his pocket, he took off his coat anil began: "Now, Mike, your time has come! I nave tried in'every way to get along with you, but you were i- obey. I am put here to run this prison, and I'm going to do it if I have to kill somebody every day!" He rolled up his sleeves, stepped to the door to make sure that it was locked and continued: "I have made up my mind to kill you. No one will miss you, or if they do I can say that you escaped. Your body can be hidden "under here aud the rats alone will know it!" He spit on his hands, seized his club, and Mike yelled out: "Don't—don't—for heaven's sake do not murder me!" "You will not work—you refuse to obey—you—" "Yes, I'll work—I'll obey—oh! give me a chance—just one chance!" inter rupted Mike as he fell on bis knees and held up his bauds, and after a time he was told that he could live on. He went to the shops, took hold of bis work, and official ever had any more trouble with liirn. In the preseuee of other convicts lie would lmve died fighting. Taken alone he was a coward in the face of what he thought was death. MARKETS BY TELEGRAPH. NKW YOBK. New York, June 28. WHEAT—Spring, nominal.
