SORROWFUL RESULTS OF

management was discussed last night
n the house of governors, after an
address on this theme by Cary A.
Hardee, governor of Florida. Gover
nor Thomas E. Campbell, of Arizona,
was in the chair.
Gov. Hardee said that principally
there are two schools of thought with
relation to prisons, the sentimental
and the practical. The former lavish
sympathy upon the criminal creating,
in his judgment, a lack of respect for
the law. The practical criminologists
believe that society is entitled to pro
tection from the criminal and that the
widows and orphans of murder vie
t:ms should be fully protected.
Gov. Hardee declared that too much
coddling of criminals belittles the law
and "kills the fear of the law in the
souls of weak men." He emphasized
his opinion that a convict should re
turn a profit to his state in compen
sation for the money spent in assur
ingliim of a fair and impartial trial
With respect to young offenders,
Gov. Hardee said that he favored cor
rectional institutions but that the
hardened adult otfenders were not en
titled to similar gentle treatment

The Laboring Putnpa.
On the third day after I had tried
to brain myself in the old boiler I was
pretty nearly as good as ever, and my
two Good Samaritans reluctantly con consented
sented consented to my going back to work,
Jeanle renewing the bandage on my
broken bead, and laying many injunc injunctions
tions injunctions npon Daddy Hiram to send me
right back to the cabin if I didn't be behave;
have; behave; "behaving,' in her use of the
word, meaning that I was to take it
easy on the Job.
That sounded mighty good to me,
the way she said it Most men, I fan fancy,
cy, fancy, are only overgrown children in the
sense that they like to be fussed over
by their womankind. Don't mistake
me, please; I wasn't in love with her
then. Candidly, I don't think I knew
what a real love was. But it was
mighty pleasant to live in the same
house with her, and to eat her deli delicious
cious delicious cooking ; to be with her every
day, and to have those undisturbed
evening half-hours with her in front
of the fire. If I had had to get out;
or if there bad been another man
but I won't anticipate.
In due time and after we had com completely
pletely completely "overhauled the rusted and
gummed-up machinery. Daddy and I
happened upon a day when we were
ready to put fire under the boilers and
we did it. If I should live to be a
hundred years old, I shall never forget
the tense, suppressed excitement that
gripped me as we brought the wood for
the furnaces that bright, hot, July
morning. By eight o'clock we had
ninety pounds of steam pressure on
the boilers, but we held off until It
had climbed to the regular working
pressure of one hundred and twenty.
Then I started the pumps; two big
centrifugal suctions, mounted on a
platform In the shaft mouth and so
arranged that they could be lowered
to follow the water level down if It
should go down; pumps that each
threw a stream six inches in diameter.
After the pumps were started and
the indicators showed, or seemed to
show, that they were working up to
full capacity, I rigged up a measuring
gauge; a bit of wood for a float, with
a string tied to it, and the string pass passing
ing passing over a pulley in the shafthouse
roof-beaming with a weight on the end
of It. If the water level should go down,
the float would sink with it, puUing
the weight up. A smooth board, with
feet,' inches and fractions penciled, on
it, was stood up beside the weight to
answer for a measuring scale.
At the end of the hour the float
hadn't moved a hair's breadth; not a
hundredth part of an inch, so far as we
"J don't believe the pumps are work working
ing working r I exploded. "Surely they'd make
some little difference in the level un unless
less unless that shaft's got all the under underground
ground underground water in the world to back It
up. Those indicators must be out of
whack in some way. Where does the
discharge water empty Itself?"
Daddy knew this, too.
"Over in the left-hand gulch Into
"Show me, I directed.
We found the discharge from the

the path; a ten-Inch pipe which had
been laid underground from the shaft shaft-house,
house, shaft-house, presumably to keep It from
freezing In winter. The end of the
pipe stuck out over the stream and It
was projecting pretty nearly a solid
ten-inch Jet of water. The pumps were
working all right ; there was no doubt
about that. I dug up enough of my
college math to figure that two six six-inch
inch six-inch streams would Just about fill a
ten-inch pipe, and here it was, running
full and pouring like another torrent
into the gulch. So back we went to
the mine buildings to pile more wood
into the furnaces and to resume our
watching of the Indicator and Its pencil-marked

pile. woodpile. For a solid week we chopped
down trees and spilt them up, Daddy
and I, and kept the fires roaring under
the boilers and kept those monster
pumps whirring and grinding away at
the shaft month night and day, mind
you; watch on and watch off. And,
right straight through It all, that little
indicator weight I had rigged up stood
stock still ; never moved the width of
one of the pencil marks I had drawn
on Its gauge board.
By this time my stubbornness was
yielding something to the still more
stubborn fact. If all this pumping
hadn't even started the flood toward
its diminution, truly all the waters un under
der under the earth must be backing the un unfailing
failing unfailing well of that drowned shaft.
Toward the last I think we kept
on more from force of habit than any anything
thing anything else, but at the end of the week
I gave In and consented to let the
fires die down, though it was like pull
ing teeth to do it. Something, indeed,
I brought out of the overtime work,
disappointing as it had been in the
major sense; I was muscled up as

a sort of wild laugh. "Listen both

I remembered afterward that I had
got just that far to the naming of
Bullerton when Barney, the pie-faced
collie, got up from his corner of the
hearth, stalked to the door and began
to growl. The next minute we heard
a horse's sh-r-r-, and Daddy Hiram
rose, pushed the dog aside and opened
the door. Then Jeanie and I, still
sitting before the fire, heard him say
gruffly: "Well, hello, Charley Buller Bullerton!
ton! Bullerton! What in Sara Hill are you doin'
up In this neck o woods?"
I turned to look, at Jeanle and
missed. In the moment when I had
glanced aside she had vanished.'
When Bullerton came In, which was
after Daddy Hiram had lighted the
lantern and shown him where to put
his horse, he didn't seem half as rauh
surprised to find me sitting before the
Twombly house fire as I thought he
might have been.
"Well, well! look who's here!" he
bantered. "How are you, Broughton?
This old world isn't so infernally big
as it might be, after all, Is It? Who
would have thought that our next
meeting would be in such an out-of-the-way
corner of the universe as this 1
I hope you've been well and chipper,

I said what I was obliged to, and
wasn't any too confoundedly cordial
about It," either, I guess.
Bullerton drew up a chair and began
to talk, much as If we'd Invited him to,
about his hard-working year in South
America; about the fabulously rich
mines in that far-away Utopia of the
gold-diggers ; about his voyage up from
the Isthmus ; about the oddness of his
meeting me on the train, combined
with the more excruciating oddness of
bis meeting me again, here in the East

He was just comfortably surging
along In the swing of It when a door
opened behind us and he jumped up
with another "Well, well, look who's
here!" and when I turned, he was
holding Jeanie's two hands in his and
braying over her like a wild ass of the
plains. And, if youll believe me, that
