The Capt'n believes in usi.ii;,' loni- inon sense and lus tongue more' than his pistob He mixes with them and always has time to listen to their troubles and in many instanei ; he carries thctn lo ihe'ofliec ami gives them advice that will prove .profita ble' after they finish scrying their term. 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 j in baking the gift. All mail i read that is sent or rr reived at the prison. Quite a num ber of romances are being carried on through the mails, it was said One of the most impressive fea tures of -.the prison is the sanitary condition.
