lathor. mother, brother, sister, and by
others who had bin Interests nt heart.
Ills manhood, hln future, and even the
promlmi of quick leleaxo from confine
ment, Ills nmhltion, all have been up
.titled to, and in many cn-.es In vain.
Now it Is to the man's stonmch that the
appeal la to ho made.
"Toll tno what the man cam and I will
tell you tho man," Ik a saying that has
found countless hellevett. anil thetc
am those unkind enough to say that
every man can be Inllueiieed by his
stomach. After a good dinner Is gen
erally considered the best time to seek
the person from whom a favor Is de
sired. If thoro Is n epark of generosity
In the victim's soul It will probably
come out after an enjoyable ntcai,
when, If a Rood digestion permit, the
owner of the stomach Is at peace with
both his Maker and the whole wot Id.
So it Is that the brainy men who study
out how best to check the Increase lii
crlmo and reform thou1 already in
i rime have hit on the plan of entering
to the p.-lf.onor's stomach.
Once proved a success, It Is believed
by its advocates that it will be Intro
duced in every prison and reformatory
in the country. To try this food exper
iment quite an elaborate new plant Is
required. It will cost $10,000 and con
sist of a now cook mom and mess room.
Thla fireproof building will, when
erected, be large enough for the present
and prospective population of the re
formatory 1,200 to 1,.'00 prisoners.
Superintendent '.. R. Hroekway of
tho reformatory said a day or two ago
in answer to a query about the new
experiment: "I regret that I am not
ablo to write out at pie&ont the full de
tails of the scheme that Is Incubating
in our minds and gradually approach
ing materialization In the planning and
construction of a kitchen and series of
dining rooms to afford facilities that
shall cnablo us to utilize with better
results than hitherto the chemical com
binations and quantitative distribution
of foods among the more defectlvo of
tho Inmates of the reformatory. The
proposed experiment contemplates a
somewhat enlnrged scale of dietary
privilege, enlarging from grndo to
grade, from lowest to highest, so that
within duo and proper limits of indul
gence of tho appetites by prisoners in
a prison reformatory for crime they can
out of their own accumulations have
tho privilege to select meal by meal,
ns they may please to do, provided nl
unya that they keep their expenditures
within their means, and also within the
HmitB of indulgence allowed by tho
government of tho reformatory.
"Tho prisoners under tho wage-earning
system of the reformatory as It Is
nt present must earn their living and
keep a credit balance to their account,
respectively, in order to progress to
ward their release by parole. Their
account is now debited v'th a charge
for board by the day ,n week, and
thcro is already established some dif
ferences of diet and of board rate, as
between the three grades, hut tho dif
ference is iiiBiilllcleitt; it Istoo indednlt
ns to each inmate and Is not flexible
"Thcro Is need of more opportunity
for their self-indulgence as to diet, In
dulgence to bo based on the amount or
earnings and credit tho prisoner main
tains for himself. Tho prisoner, to
mnlntnin n credit balance under the
conditions here, must needs restrain,
regulate and exert himself In a man
ner which accomplishes and shows h!n
"While tho Inducement of approach

tho better class of the Inmates, thero
aro othorB who require more opportun
ity to expend for their persoivnl gratifi
cation in order to supply them a sulll
clent Inducement to earn. Then, again,
tho expcndlturo of their earnings
wlsoly and well, as tho expenditure
must bo made when under proper regu
lations and supervision, is as valuable
a training for them and as sure a test
of their fitness for freo llfo as Is their
disposition nml ability to earn; this
because tho rate of expenditure deter
mines tho amount of savings. To save

Queen Ainetln of Poitugal, who. as
every one knows, Is a qualified doctor,
has perceived that X-rays might be
utilized to demonstrate the evils of
tight lacing. She has taken photo
graphs of some of the ladles of her
court, and has been holding forth en
ergetically concerning the contrast be
tween the feminine form divine and the
form as it appears when "Improved"

hear that her majesty's well meant ef

the fair rebels hnve even gone so far
as to flatly refuse to be photographed.
If the queen peiveveres, however, she
will doubtless be able to legulato the

a thing "bad form" Is far more efTec

The award of tho bronze medal o!
the lloynl Drawing Society of London
this year Is a matter of enthusiastic
inlet est to young art students all over
tile world, lnaouiiicli as It was won by
a young woman only 10 years of age,
MI.m Nellie Knelt.
Since the earliest inauguration of of
ferlng prizes for tho host work among
any given artistic line artists or un
doubted genius from Canova and Tlitir
wahlKcn have entered Into eager com
pel It Ion for the advantages which such
badges of distinction cairy In their
train; for where they do not ineludo
years of tttitdy under most favoring
conditions, as they so often do, they
bring to an artist Instant and wide
spread recognition; nnd It ought to
serve as a stimulus to the youngest art
student In Philadelphia, Iloston, New
York or Denver that youth l no bar
sinister to such honors. Tho drawing
which obtained for Miss Kuck so dis
tinguished a success Is entitled "Tho
Young St. Cecilia," a charmingly com
posed decorative panel, chiefly Inter
esting by reason of iu original and
novel manner of treatment. Perhaps
It was her own sweet youth In tho
blood that led her imagination away
from tho traditionally mature Cecilia
ami mtuie It dwell rather upon tho
heavenly mnld when Inspiration first
dawned upon her youthful conscious
ness, with a few clever, effective
ntiokes sho has achieved tho sweetly
tuirloiiB face and pose of tho young
saint, the well-grouped, raptly listen
ing angels above, topped by tho con
ventionalized figures or music and poe
try. The whole gives evidence of fine
poetic fancy, excellent art, and is par
ticularly strong In the decorative har
mony of Its linos. Two years ago .Miss
Kuck was awarded Lord IjIghton's
prize for her drawing "Tho Mermaid,"
and ho then always ho ready to en
courage youthful talent- recommended
her to adopt the artist's profession. In
fact "The Young St. Cecilia" repre
sents her thlid success, as last year sho
obtained tho Oeurgo KckwichH prlzo
