intimate knowledge of both, is
The Shepherd of the Hills," the
iiramat i.ation of Harold II. -11
Wright's famous novel, which
has been made by Mr. Wright,
with the assistance of Fishery W.
Reynolds. The "hills," the
beautiful Ozark and against this
majestic play background the
author has sketched the tender
est tale of love, the most appeal
ing story of nature. Though the
peace of the mighty hill pervade
the drama, its acts are tense with
leeds of daring that demand
both physical and moral cour-
ige. "The Shepherd of the
Hills" will be the attraction at

Many Released Men From State
Penitentiary Havo Been As
sisted In Various Ways.
The Nebraska Prison Associa
tion was organized in i'J02 for
the purpose of helping discharg
ed prisoners to secure positions
where they could earn an honest
living and feel that they had a
chance to bi-come respected citi
zens. There are three classes of
prisoners the confirmed crim
inal, who does not want a defer
ent life; the man who has means
or friends to help him get a Iarl,
and the man who has no friends,
ami under undue pressure has
committed a crime, but who at
heart is not a criminal and wants
a chance to show the world that
he can live an upright life. This
last is the class that the associa
tion is helping. In twelve years
there have been about l,0'io nn-n
helped by the association, and
very few of them have gone back
The association is finding em
ployment for paroled men, sup
plying them with clothing and
furnishing them transportation
to where they go to work. Al
ready this month nine men have
been helped to get a start in this
way. there is a department or
the work called the Helping Hand
that is doing religious work in
county jails. The association is
investigating inside ronditons in
our prisons with a view to bring
ing about legislation that will
make our penal institutions more
effective in their reformatory
The oflicers of the association
are men or prominence. hier
Justice M. II. Reese is president,
A. S. Tibbets, On. A. Adams, A.
Sawyer and Victor Itosewaler
are the vice presidents. (. I.
Harphani of liarphani Hrothers
is treasurer. On the hoard oi
more than Iwenty-hve directors
are: .1. JI. Miller, . Hardy,
V. A. Selliek. Hr. J. M. Mayhew
f Lincoln, E. R. Ciurney of Fre
mont, E. E. Bruce, F. L. Halb-r,
T. J. Mahoney of Omaha, and
others of like prominence over
the state. Hut the good accom
plished each year in the better
ment of the men, in the protec
tion of society and in the welfare
of the stale is the best evidence
that the association has an im-
lortant place and is doing a
i el p fill work.
The funds to carry on the work
are contributed by those who are
interested in helping the man
who is down. Some give from a
nisiness standpoint, because the
reformat ion of the criminal saves
lis business from being preyed
upon. Some give from a phiian
thropie standpoint, because we
are really all members of one
great family. Some give from a
humanitarian standpoint, be
cause of the desire to protect
men from ill-treatment.
Help can be given in three
ways. The men need clothing
when they go out. Some cast -off
garments are acceptable. They
need employment, the associa
tion can be notified of places
where work can be obtained.
They need transportation; a con
tribution of some amount will
help in that item.
