When asked what was his advice to
young men, Mr. Cabe remarked that
there was one thing to remembered:
once a convict, you can never live it
down. No matter what the nature of
the crime, a convict is always looked
down upon. No matter how far a
convict goes from home after serv
ing his time, it always comes out
sooner or later that he is a convict.
No prisoner is ever given any priv
ileges without lirst showing that he
deserves them. Then their privileges
are limited' When given a foot, the1
average convict usually takes a mile;
The superintendent does alb the
locking up himself and every pre
caution is taken to see that no 'es
cape is made. The prisoners arc al
lowed visitors. All visitors are
watched closely by the wide-awake
guards on duty. Marly convicts re
ceive packages, but in every instance
they are carefully inspected before
being handed to the prisoners. All
I cakes are cut open several times be-
fore the convicts receive them, to see
that no saws or weapons were used

One of the most impressive fea

Fire Department Makes
Two Runs, No Damage
Th local fire department answered
two calls this week. No damage was
done at either call. An electric motor

Since neither fire resulted in any
damage, the local fire department is
still on the honor roll.
