New York Convict
To Train Fellows
Albany.—A ronvlct who c!c; : rtbcs>
aimself as a "unfwrfty gr-'fiate
and the victim of the school of
hard knocks" has begun a course in
Civics In onr of the largest state
prisons, according to 'the state. edu
cation department, in an attempt,
to chance the attitude of prison in
mates from antagonism toward so
lieiy to interest and cooperation.
In a letter to the special schools
bureau made public today by the de
partment, the convict-teacher said
of his course:
"We carefully and .clearly explain
that society primarily exists for the
benefit and protection of Its mem
bers. In other words, it tc a mutual
organization, naturally there must
be certain rules to which inch mem
ber must - subscribe■ or sanction Rnd
live up to .
"We tell the student that tie, as a
member of society, evaded his obli
gations, failed in his duties to his
fellow man and is, therefore, ban
ished for a time. By good conduct
and honest effort he may, if tic so
desires, win back the privilege of
another chance to live and work In
harmony with his fellows,
•‘By the time we have brought
these facts before the men they
have a better understanding of
right and wrong than ever before
In their lives.”
The course, according to the edu
cation department, emphasizes par
ticularly the necessity of having po
lice and prisons, and points out the
efforts that society Is making to
better conditions in prisons.

A Mother’s Love
From Specialty Salesman Magazine
Mother! Next to the Divine Fath
er, the most sacred word human
, voice can utter. The first word the
' infant lisps through faltering lips—
! "momma." Instinctive recognition
of devotion for life and sustenance,
j"Mother" the first word, when
I harm befalls the child at play.
Thoughts of mother, and her grief,
when the child, grown to maturity,
: leaves home, to take up the battle
| of life. "Mother,” the first thought
when disaster or illness over takes
l one. “Mother," the final thought
j when one is brought to the close of
life; "Mother." the last thought and
' the last word of tire soldier dying
ion field or in hospital.
Youth, fades. Poverty, failure,
mtsfortun;' tnny rome, but, through
it all, mother's love endures If
success comes, she is happy. But no
amount of shortcomings can shake
one iota mother's hope and love.
Mother's day Is Sunday, May 12.
A day set apart for universal recog
nition of mother. But every day is,
or should be. Mother's day in our
hearts. Mother's love has made the
world. Let us love all the living
mothers, and reverence all mothers
of the past—1whose arms encircled
the helpless infant, gave it life
mothers who now are dead—moth
ers who gave their beauty and youth
to their children. Is not mother love
eternal? It passes from mother to
daughter, and the young mother, in
the bloom of youth and beauty,
transmits it to her children, sees
them grow to manhood, and then
dies. And so from century to cen
tury, from age to age. mother love
has become immortal.
We would like to stay the hand
of time, and keep mother with us.
But the days flit by, and mother
grows old and weary. Her youth
and beauty has faded, but her smile,
her mother love endures. If mother
is living, how happy she would be
now to receive a letter from her
boy or girl! Could one ever be too
busy to write often to mother?
Let us make the coming year a
Mother year. We never can repay
mother for all that she has meant
to us, but we can seo her more fre
quently. and write more letters
that will mean much to her.

Build A New Home
BY BUYING NEW
You can build a new house and furnish it with the old
furniture; that’s one sort of change. Or, you can REFUR
NISH the old home with new and modern things, and get al
most as much of a change that way. And it is cheaper to re
furnish than it is to rebuild. /

Younger Generation, With Auto
Parties, Extends Frolics
Into The Night.
Those straw rides—You boys and
girls of thirty or more years ago—
you remember them. Great events
they were, too. Lots of fun for the
whole bunch who took part in them.
This kind of fun and frolic is out of
date now. Just a little passe, as the
high brows would inform you. Nev- ,
ertheless they were the real whoopee
in those days, and the youngsters
used to get a lot of kick out of
This old world, however, in the

u straw ride today would be about |
the tamest thing tlie young folks
could think of. Motor cars and pet

boys and girls got thetr fun.
Those old-time straw rides though
furnished a lot of real wholesome
pastimes. The youngsters used to
look forward to them for days in
advance. They were always sched
uled for a moonlight night. There
would be long rides through town
and out into the country wnn iota
of singing and all that. They would
start just a little alter dark and
last for a couple of hours, for in
those days, Ms and Pa would be
waiting on the front door-step lor
their daughters and if they did not
get in by ten—well there would be
plenty doing for the young gallant
who failed to run on schedule.
A big two-horse wagon, filled with
a generous quantity of hay, was all
that was necessary for an outing of
this kind. Everybody wanted to sit
at the rear end of the wagon. There
would always be a scramble for the
two seats back there for you could
sit more comfortably with your feet
hanging out the back end of tire
wagon. The rest of the body of the
sea gen was well filled with boys and
girls sitting .Hat down. Lack of
springs on the wagon was no draw

was some kind of contrivance which
served in a sort of makeshift way
during the time it was in use. As
for knowing anything about a straw
ride, it's safe bet none of them have
ever heard of such a tiling.
Today they don't think of taking
a joy ride at night until after 9
o'clock just so they get back before
dawn everything seems to all O. K.
Things are changing fast in this
fast moving age. Each succeeding
generation seems to be endeavoring
to outstrip the one before by speed
ing up things just a little more.
Few old folks get the right slant on
all this rapid fiace. No matter how
hard they try, the old world just
:slips by them and leaves them
high and dry to sit and meditate
!They think the young folks today
j should gel a kick out of the things
• that use to furnish the thrills for
them wlicn they were young,
just can't be done
Youth will have its fling. A straw
ride a decade ago may have been a
real thriller, but it can't hold a cau
dle to what the youngsters demand
today. Tomorrow what was the big
kick today will be equally as tame
to the future generations as the old
time sports and amusements are to
the youngsters today. The world is
just made that way. However, as
folks grow older they can't help
wondering where it will all end.
Never mind, you won't be here to
see the grand finish. So why bother
