THE J U lA M A R Y Town Tonics 1 ^ ® Revenge is the victory of a coward Talk about e a ts —ask Arone first class cook of the Gravel Gang. We have discovered a Sherlock Holmes in our officer's corns. Frenchy gets the Board, but owes his life to Major Wolfe's right hand. We would like to know who named Maneini, Monk —he’s not a bad looking tollow. Schiller would like to know why he has stopped growing. A farm er can tell you Schiller. Physicians tell us that 20,000 people die ann- uallv is America from consuming tobacco This includes Elmira. With Greenfield ss Chief Clerk of the Discip­ linarian's office, we know that the right man is in the right place. Well, well —Wells! I reckon the folks back home won’t recognize you in a lieutenant’s uni­ form, by heck! Cameron is often the victim of extremely pain­ ful toothaches now a-days. What has ho done to suffer so much, the poor boy? Originality is the most laudable attribute, but you will do well to copy the example set by the ■aap who earns a parole. Heller the snare drummer of the Band is sure­ ly a gifted musician. As manipulator of the drumsticks we must say he’s a daisy. \H o p p e r” Me Lougbiio, the G. R. F. Demon will soon have bis newest book finished. Why I changed from Irish to Scotch, is its title. We heard that Cameron is taking a course in Navigation. L e t’s hope he does not ferget him­ self at night and think he is on the ocean. From clerk to messenger, to a ring outline in Msjot B a rtlett’s \A c ad'm y of the Mop” is the experience of a former men.her of the G. R. F. Next stop—Training Class. One of the most active messengers in the in­ stitution is De Petro.; in fact when we consider that he is alwayt on the alert, we think he might be justly termed the “ m^st active.” Christofulli is now in charge of the Officers’ Shop As an adept in the art “ tansorial” a successful incumbency is assured him. Justiano has been sssigned.to assist him. Our traveling barbers Farone and \S teve” are kept busy these days. One or the other can bs seen at work in some department most anytim e. They are good knights of the razor. The babit of blaming others when things ge wrong is an insiduous ard dangerous one. Far more is it the purpose to inq .ire within whether the fault or much of it may not lie a t home. •Link’ Dapper, the champion apple knocker of the road gang will no doubt be a delegate to the next Hoboes’ Convention It is said that sooner or later he will replace Jeff Davis as king of the Freight Car Knights. Visit the Main Hall any day and at any time and you will surelv find Major Dowdle and his Gaelic workers, \ P o p ” Rvan, ' ‘Chuck” Conners, \ P a t ty ” Shaw and \D a n ” Doherty, wording a- way to beat the band. Among the progressive aspirants striving to reach the acme of proficiency in the tonsorial art are Shapiro, Ahearne and Virginia, Lacto makes a fourth and capable instructor for the Barber Shop. Among thoseevidantlv destined to become sue- eessfui printers is Goldstein who during the week broke the institulionsl type setirng record with a total of forty-seven lines to to his credit in a single hour. The office of Libr.irian necessita’es alertness and activity by the incumbent. Nellis has a- bout settl d in his new nosition and we have it that errors are few and far between wi h this energetic members of cur community. As one enters the Auditorium Sundays, there can be no f ailure to notice the absence of all dust from the -a Is and chairs. Every spot that has formerly been in evidence has given way to the zeal of \P a tty ” Connors and his force of Main Hall workers. AN APPRECIATION TO MR. ERNEST D. PRITCHARD Mr. Ernest D. Pritchard, head bookkeeper, re­ signed Thursday, to accept the position as Stew­ ard of the Home for Crippled Children at W. Haverstraw, N. Y We have thus, through pro­ motion, lost one of our best friends. Mr. Pritch­ ard has spent fourteen years in the service of the Slate and has served as Secretary of the Benevolent Association of the N. Y..S. R. The splendid promotion he has won came only a fter years of patient and persistent endeavor to ad­ vance himself and we dare say that he deserves every iota of success that now seems to be com­ ing in bis direction. Mr. Pritchard was popular with the inmates and Officers alike and it is the sincere wish of the total population that the success that was his here, remain with him in his new undertaking. The crippled children are indeed fortunate in securing as their Steward,Mr. Ernest D. Pritch­ ard. REGULARS VICTORIOUS The Regulars played their first game in three weeks on their home field last Saturday and had »n easy time with their opponents—the Willys- Morrow Club. The seoro war 7 3. Wittenstein did the twirling for our bunch and he pitched a masterly game. He eased up a little in the final innings and permitted the visitors to score two harmless runs Our men clouted safely on eleven occasions. Walters is credited with three of these, including a triple and a double. \Shorty” Me Cabe made several spectacular plays in the field besides doing well at tl’e for the visifors. It is rumored thst gamblers offered \®°8teiii a “ special parole” if he would \thr« hegame. But \Vic” renounced the villain.. refused their biibe.

We heard no more for our own phone rang in our own Sanctum. When Perkins was appointed and assigned as follows: 1st Sergeant of B Company, it fell to the lot of Barney to supply him with a sword. Iiater, during Officers’ School, the command \ r e ­ turn swords” was given, and we’ll be goth darn fakers if Sam didn’t shout out \here Barney, here’s your sword.” But four U. S. Dsfinites are now enrolled in the Institution and they are gradually becoming fewer in number. Mark Twain once said, if it were true that the human race is constantly growing smaller in size it become merely a time when they would cease to exist. This applies with far more truth to the Definites and \is a consummation devoutly to be wished f o r.” Now about that Transfer Desk: it is a very trying post and its incumbent must always be alert and accurate or he can not hold the job. A number of months ago when \Slim ” was made Transfer Clerk we weren’t quite willing to wag­ er our credit that h- would be a success. That is just what he has been, and we - well, \to err is human. ” On Wednesday last, the Institution wes visited by Dr. Arnold Rnegg, a professorof the Univer­ sity of Zurich, Swi zerland. Dr. Ru»ggia visiting this country as a delegate of his University for the puriose of collecting data on the various prison systems and the welfare of prisoners in general. Major Gunderman showed him about and explained in detail the work performed throughout. Needless to say. Dr Ruegg was very favorably impressed, especially with the School of Letters and the Trade School.

There does not exist one being who has not within himself a coun'erbalance to his most con­ spicuous merit; if this be nouiished by desire it may grow to be a nmeter and tyrant. Battle against its insidi iu?ly c'utching tendrils, summon prudence as an ally and let the first step taken be to show that you are aware of its presence, for an evil once known is half conquered, and this is especially the ease when the afflicted one surveys it in the same light as do his companions. \To be master of o r e ’s self one should know one’s s e lf.” If the chief imperfection ba con­ quered, the rest will soon amount to naught. A fort is attacked at its weakest point and lo the architects try to make all parts equally strong-only adding defenses to those p'aces roost eligible to assault. Mankind certainly has been formulated upon the same lints as these and the same precautions should be taken in both cases NOTICE Writing Day, irrespective of grade, for all men whose names begin with letters A, B, C, D, E, and F. except Boardmen with writing privileges and m anied men with wives recog­ nized.
