When Thomas G. Jones, whom Pres ident Roosevelt has appointed district Judge In Allnbama, wns -Governor of the State, the bad practice prevailed of farming out convicts In labor camps. Under tho law they were let out by contract to the highest t bidder, und were liable to neglect n'nd maltreat trfcuL The Governor hud to administer the laws as he found them, but to this law, says a writer lu Harper's Week ly, he was stoutly opposed. One day a negro wns sentenced to ten years' Imprisonment. The law re quired the Governor's signature to n paper before the man could be sent to the convict camp. The Governor did not act as promptly as those who con tracted for the labor of the convicts thought desirable, so they sent n rep resentative to him t- find out what tho matter was. "I have delayed acting In this man's case," said the Governor, "because I have heard that measles, In a very ma lignant form, have broken out In your camp, and that many of the convicts ore dying. Is It true?" "Yes," said the agent, lightly; "but what difference does tbat make? Send him along. He may not catcb the measles, anyway, and If he does, and dies, why. It's only one nfgger the less." "That Is all I wanted to know," re plied Governor Jones. "I scud no more persons, black or white, to your camp till the disease Is under control. The agent reddened. "See here. Governor," he snapped nut, angrily, "you don't own tlnf State of Alabama! We have still some courts open. If you refuse to send that man to camp, wo shall go Into court and get out a mandamus, and then you will have to do It." It was now the Governor's turn to flujh. He wheeled upon his visitor with a gesture toward the door. "You go into the nearest court and try your best to force me to do what I do not believe Is right!" ho thundered. "Try It It will teach you a lesson. Tho same laws which give me power to sign that paper give me authority to pardon a convict. Now I serve you with fair warning that the Instant I see your emissary enter that door with your mandamus In his hand, I sign a par don for the convict I Now go!" An Author' Idea of Plenty.

Mr. Edwards was a writer of Southern verse, and of dialect stories of that picturesque peo plo of the South known as Georgia Crackers. He surprised his, friends by saying that bis wife bad furnished a splendid plot for the tale of mystery that he was to offer. The couple went to work enthusiasti cally on the story, entitled It "Sons and fathers," and It won tho first prize. To the question. What will you do with tho money? tho Edwardses said not a word. Weeks passed and the curiosity of the townspeople wns still on edge. Then, one day, an express wagon delivered twenty crated bicycles before the Edwards plazzl. "Every single relative of mine," said Mr. Edwards, "has wanted a bicycle. and not ono of them would linvo a poor wheel.
